Seasons Tweetings!

Hello! It's Marcy here with my last Inspiration Day share for 2014!!!  Can you believe Christmas and the New Year 2015 are almost here?!!  Well I've finally finished all of my handmade Christmas cards and here is one more that I wanted to share with you all...

So Lawn Fawn is one of my new favorite stamps to play with and I was excited to create a Christmas card with this adorable set called Winter Sparrows!  For the cute birds, I colored them up with my Copic Markers and added lots of Wink of Stella to make them sparkle.  For the tree branch, the notes and the sentiment, I embossed them using some Ranger black sparkle embossing powder.  It really looks so pretty up close.  The fun background paper is from a collection called Frosty Friends by Doodlebug Designs.  I love the design which looks like a pretty teal and snowy sky behind the singing birds! :)  To finish off my card, I embossed the base with some polka dots and then added a bow made with some holiday trim from my stash.  

Here are the Supplies Used:
Frosty Friends - Doodlebug Designs
Black Tuxedo - Memento
Versamark Ink - Tsukineko
Black Sparkle Embossing Powder - Ranger

Hope my card gives you some holiday inspiration and I hope you all have a very special and safe holiday season!

More Tags!

Hi Friends and Stampers,

It's time for another Holly-Day Monday Inspiration Blog Post.  I have been busy making more tags!  I can't seem to get enough of them.  Here is another set of six: 

It started with these two.   I just love the little bunnies in this set and through they would look cute holding the ribbons. 

Then I thought about how cute it would be to have this bird sit on a birdhouse on the tag.  In real life, the color of the house matches the color in the paper dots, lol.  

And finally,  I have this thing for whimsical squirrels and chipmunks.  I just love them.  I stamped each image, colored with my copics and then adhered them down.  I love these two sets, among others.... lol.   

Okay, no matter what you do, do not miss tomorrow post over at the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog!  You do  not want to miss it.  

That's all I'm saying, lol.   Oh and go check out the New Items in the store!

Happy Saturday Friends!  It's Marcy here and I wanted to share a fun holiday card I made recently.  I've had a lot of holiday events this week including our holiday luncheon at work.  I wanted to give out some handmade cards and I made a few using this adorable "Cheers Anya" from The Greeting Farm!

Here's a pic of it...

I kept my card pretty simple just coloring up cute Anya with my Copic Markers and then adding lots of Wink of Stella glitter to her dress and also some white polka dots to the trim.  To her wine glasses, I added some glossy accents and  I also scattered some colorful sequins and rhinestones onto the card base.  For the sentiment, I stamped it using some versamark ink and then took some gold embossing powder over that to heat set. It really looks so pretty against the kraft cardstock.  Oh and the fun background paper is from a collection called Santa Express by Doodlebug Designs.  Super adorable holiday papers!

Here are the Supplies Used:
Santa Express - Doodlebug Designs
Black Tuxedo - Memento
Versamark Ink - Tsukineko

Have a wonderful day and don't forget to come back tomorrow for our Sensational Sunday Blog Hop!

Thanks for stopping by!

Warm Winter Wishes

I hope you all have been having a wonderful week. Shanna here today to share a Magnolia card for you all. These images are just so fun to color and so darn cute to play with. 

Not really too much to say about this card today except I had fun trying to color the pleats in her dress. Not sure I succeeded to the point of some. I would so love to see Alyce color this image so I could get a better idea of how to color the pleats! 

I colored the image with copics YAY! And I remembered to distress everything!

I also finished the card off with a sentiment from a new release set from SugarPea Designs!

Items Used:
Magnolia Stamp - Waiting For Christmas Collection -  (Coming Soon)
SugarPea Designs - Sweet Treats Christmas (Coming Soon)
My Mind's Eye - Joyous

Singing Loud

Hi Friends and Stampers,

It's a Holly-Day Monday and my turn to show you some inspiration.   Today I made six tags, lol, once I got started on one, I had to make the set.

I also added some glossy accents to the noses. I thought about a red nose, but there is nothing like a black shiny nose, lol.   I used the Blueprints 6 tags die to cut them out with the Snowy Day music paper and sponged with old paper ink using my distressed blending tool.  I then used the scallop edged circle to cut out with the red Snowy Day paper.  I used the mini doily's to cut out the white.  I stamped my Reindeer on X-Press It paper six times and colored them first with E23, E25, E27 and then the antlers with E41, E42, E43, then I fussy cut them all out and layered up.  I used a couple punches I had on hand to make the tag tops in green but later noticed this was included in the Die-namics Blueprints Tag Builder set, lol.  That would have been helpful to know, lol.  

I hope you are having a great season!  Don't forget to stop by the New Items in the store and check out what you want to get in the mail for your own Holly-Day!  There is also a few hours left to get into our current challenge!  

Thanks for Looking and checking in on us,
