Kimono Marci


Hello Friends and Stampers,

Happy Holly-Day Monday!  Sorry this is so late!  I got in late last night from the beach, slept in way too late and my Sister is here visiting.   But I wanted to take few minutes to share my Kimono Marci with you.  I found this tri-fold card someone had done on Facebook and I knew it would be perfect for my Marci.  I cut out the bottom with my Bracket Tab die and the top with the negative from the Faux Crochet Border.  And I colored her in with my Copics. 

I have had a great birthday weekend and thankfully I am off today to recover and catch up on some shopping and errands.  Along with all that laundry! lol.  I hope your Monday is fabulous as well.  And that you have some time to get inky!!!

Thanks for Looking and Have a great day

Holly

Happy Birthday with Balloon Kaylee!


Hello Friends, It's Marcy with some inspiration for you all today! 

I've been on a roll with making birthday cards and here is another one to share with you...


 This summer has been filled with so many birthdays!!!  In fact, we are celebrating my youngest son, Ethan's birthday today! We also have another birthday on Sunday and one next week.  I'm not exactly sure who will be getting this birthday card but it will definitely be given to a birthday celebrant soon!  The cute girl on my card is called Balloon Kaylee.  She's so adorable and I colored up her hair and skin with my Copic Markers.  I ended up paper piecing pretty much everything else on her.  The fun papers I used for this as well as the background are from Doodlebug Designs called Sugar Shoppe.  These papers are so perfect for birthday themed cards.  To finish off my card, I added some sequins and some twine.  The sentiment is also from this same cute stamp set. 

Here are the Supplies Used:
Balloon Kaylee - Some Odd Girl
Sugar Shoppe - Doodlebug Designs
Black Tuxedo -Memento Ink
Be sure to stop by the Loves Rubberstamps store to see the items used on my card and all the fun SOG stamp sets.   We also have the "Sensational Sunday" blog hop tomorrow so hope you stop by again to visit and join in!

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
Marcy

You are so Beautiful.....



To Me....

Hello Friends and Stampers,

It's a Happy Holly-Day Monday!  I hope everyone is having a good start to the week.  It's my turn to show you some Inspiration today. 


As soon as I saw the words in the Simply Fabulous Sayings, I could not help but think of the song, "you are so beautiful to me", I like to Joe Cocker version.   I also love this set because "Fabulous" is my word these days, lol.   I have used these lily dies before and I just love everything about them, so fun to color up.  I watched a tutorial and the gal used four pieces of painters tape, two long strips upside down and two on the ends to keep those in place.   Then she just placed the Lily pieces onto the tacky side and colored them with her Copic Markers and they stayed in place while she was coloring.....so easy!  It was brilliant!  Why didn't I think of that?  She also popped up her lilies with dementional foam, which I did not do here.   This time I colored up the lilies with Y35, R85, R83, and the green bases with YG63 and YG03.   These are quick and easy to color up and I really thing they are so beautiful.  I also want to mention I used the MFT Ink that is coming to the Loves Rubberstamps Store soon!!!

Laura has added so many Fabulous New Items to the store, you just have to go take a look....there are a few pages of them!!! And don't forget you have one more day to play in our Red, White, & Blue challenge.   And there is a New Challenge coming tomorrow!  And lastly, you have til Saturday to Blog Hop on our Sunday Sensation Inspiration Blog Hop, for a chance to win a store voucher prize. 

Have a great day and I will see you again next week!

A fun birthday card using distress inks!


Hello and Happy Saturday all!  It's Marcy here and I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!
Today,  I have a simple but fun card to share with you!

Here it is...


I had actually planned to join last week's MFT sketch challenge but lost track of time and missed the challenge!  But I'm still glad I used the sketch because it definitely sparked some "mojo" in making this card! :)  I used a fun stencil from Studio Calico then went to town with several of my Tim Holtz distress inks spreading them over the mask and creating those beautiful vibrant circles!  The colors I used were Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade.  I love all of the inks but these colors are my fav!  I used my white gel pen to outline the circles which I really thought made them pop more.    I also added some white stitching around the black border and circle.  The sentiment comes from an MFT set called Polka Dot Greetings and I embossed this onto some vellum.    To finish off my card, I added some twine and a few colorful enamel dots.  

Here are the Supplies Used:
Polka Dot Greetings - My Favorite Things
Picked Raspberry - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Peacock Feathers - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Spiced Marmalade - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Ink Blending Tool - Ranger Ink

Be sure to stop by the Loves Rubberstamps store to see all the cool Tim Holtz distress inks in so many colors!  They are so much fun and can be used in so many different ways!!!  Also, be sure to stop by tomorrow for the fun "Sensational Sunday" blog hop!

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs,
Marcy
