The Ride

Hi Friends and Stampers,

Happy Holly-Day Memorial Day, (in the states).  I hope your day is going well and full of fun and exciting things.  It's my day to show you some inspiration.



This will be a great card to give someone who is going away for a long Vacation. I love playing with my dies and they are so fun to put together.  In this case, I die-cut out two, one in Kraft and one in black and then I used the black for a shadow effect and added the dots and such to fill in with black. The paper did most of the work for me and I just stamped on the words right onto the designer paper.  
Who is going on a fun vacation this summer?  I love watching House Hunters on TV and pretty much just keep that station going all the time.  When I get the TV that is, lol.  They usually show some of the city and fun spots to go to, so for me, it's like planning a get away, if only in my mind, lol.  Most of my Vacations are Stay-Cations when the boys are home from School.  Sometimes they are family events, but usually to the same destinations we have been to.  Occasionally we get a long weekend at the Beach.  I don't mind Stay-Cations though, this is where all my toys are.  

We also love to go to the movies.  This weekend, we went to see, Tomorrowland.  LOVED it.  The lady at the ticket booth gave my son a pin and told him, "You are lucky, this was the very last one."  We didn't even know the relevance until we saw the show.  On the way out, he did say something to the effect of, "If I could go there, I would invent something that would clean our house."  OMGosh we laughed so hard.  Secretly, he did take the pin out of the packaging though, lol.   

I hope you have had a chance to play in our current Challenge - Black and White with a touch of color.   If you haven't had a chance to check out the New Items in the store, you are going to be so excited to see what the Newest company added is. 

Thanks for checking in on me.

You Make My Heart Sing


Happy Saturday Friends!  Hope you're all having a wonderful day and that some of you get to enjoy the longer Memorial Holiday weekend!  I've been under the weather this week with the "Sicky Bugs" which have been been passing through my household lately.  I'm a little disappointed that I am still having to recoup during his holiday weekend.  However, I am also thankful I will have some extra time to hopefully rest up and get better!  Well,  to cheer me up this weekend, I made a fun and cheerful card to share with you all!  

Here it is...


This cutie comes from the adorable TGF Magical Kit.  She's one of the newbies in that set and I absolutely love her!!!  I colored her up with my copics and then added Wink of Stella all over her dress and flowers in her hair. The lovely papers in the background are from a collection called Dear Lizzy Neopolitan by American Crafts.  These backgrounds are so pretty!  The sentiment also came from the set which was pretty cool.   To finish off my card, I added some roses, twine and sequins...my favorite embellies!

Here is the full supply list for my card:
Dear Lizzy Neopolitan - American Crafts
Red Barn - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Clear Glitter Brush Marker - Wink of Stella

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and Happy Memorial Day!

Hugs,
Marcy

Fabulous Friday Inspiration

Hello There
It's time for another Fabulous Friday Inspiration at Loves Rubber Stamps Blog. This week it's a canvas for my Daughter Monique, who is collecting them, lol.

I pulled out  the INKSSENTIALS Reuseable Non Stick Craft Sheet and this wooden sentiment and began spraying it with Dylusions Ink Spray VIBRANT TURQUOISE. While it dried I added a thin coat of GESSO from Faber Castell to the canvas then went back to work on the wooden sentiment by adding a bit of  Frantage Embossing Kit to lighten it up a bit. Isn't it wierd how the color changes so drastically on different textures? 

I stenciled the entire canvas with a Prima Stencil with more GESSO from Faber Castell. They sprayed a couple of times using Dylusions Ink Spray VIBRANT TURQUOISE. I then glued my embellishments down with

Cancer Tilda

Shanna here and now it is a new Thursday and I thought with June right around the corner (and me being a Cancer) I thought it appropriate to play along with this image. 


She is colored up with copics and paired with some older My Mind's Eye papers.


I added crackle accents to the bubbles to add texture and create a fun vibe on my card as well.


I finished the card off with some Wild Orchid Crafts.

Spectacular!


Hi Friends and Stampers,

It's a Happy Holly-Day Monday and my turn to show you some inspiration.  Here is what I came up.

Carta Bella 6X6 - Summer Lovin'

I love these cute dies!  I put glossy accents over the lenses for a more realistic feel.  The sun and the butterfly are from the Everyday is a picnic.  Love having the matching dies, it just adds so much more to the sun.  

If you are waiting on an order or an email from Laura, I need to let you know that her Grandmother is very ill in the hospital and Laura is by her side.  So please be patient and she will most definitely be shipping your order and answering emails as soon as possible.  

I hope you are able to play in our current challenge, add a sentiment.  You still have a few more hours to join in!

Thank you so much for looking in on me. 

Holly
