Sensational Sunday Inspirations

Hi Stampers - 

I have to say a big thank you to Holly for jumping in and subbing for me the last few weeks as we have been getting Grandma settled into skilled care at the Nursing Home. She is hanging in there but is ready to go home already! We have our first meeting with her care nurse on Monday to see how she is doing with her physical therapy and adjusting to being there.

I also wanted to say thank you for all the prayers and well wishes and for hanging in there with us during these rough times for our family. I am lucky to be switching to a day-shift position for the month of June and the I took the month of July off from my other job so that will help me get things back on track faster! It has been tough trying to be at the Nursing home to keep Grandma's spirits up and working night shifts and trying to work in sleep, the store, and everything. I was lucky to be able to get a co-worker to switch shifts with me for June so that will really help! My last night shift for the next 2 months was last night! I will be working as quickly as I can to get caught up with things so I appreciate all the support!

You Bring out the Happy in Me!


Hello and welcome to my Inspiration post for this wonderful Saturday!!!  Hope you're all enjoying a nice weekend.  I'm so excited with Summer right around the corner and thought I'd make a fun happy card!

Here it is...


Here's another adorable cutie from the  TGF Magical Kit.  She's actually one of the originals called "Shimmer Bean" and I was excited to see her in this awesome set again!  I colored her up with my copics and then added Wink of Stella all over her cute outfit!  For the background, I used some TH distress markers to water color on some water color paper.  I hadn't done this in a while so it was so much fun! I also added droplets of water to the background which gave a cool resist effect,  making the water color stand out even more!  The sentiment was from my stash and I just embossed it to the background  using some white embossing powder.    To finish off my card, I added some fun yellow twine and of course sequins! :)

Here is the full supply list for my card:
Wild Honey, Tattered Rose, Tumbled Glass - Tim Holtz Distress Markers
Clear Glitter Brush Marker - Wink of Stella

Have a wonderful weekend and see you back next week!

Hugs,
Marcy

Fabulous Friday Inspiration

Hello
So happy you stopped by! I never seem to leave much room for a sentiment so, I added my sentiment to the inside. I like to make cards and add a sentiment to inside when it is time to gift it. You just never know what occassion you might be able to use it for, hehehe.


The image I am showcasing is BABY BOW. I love that she is so chubby! I stamped her using Memento Ink Pad TUXEDO BLACK and colored her up with my Copic Markers. I always like to use my
INKSSENTIALS REUSABLE NON STICK CRAFT SHEET when coloring to keep my inks from ruining my work surface. I wouldn't want to pick up any colors that might be left behind from an older project. It is such an awesome product! It is a must to have it down when I'm using my INK BLENDING TOOL to add distressing to the edges of my projects like I did here with

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!

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.

Moments Canvas


Happy Saturday all!  Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!  Today, I have a fun canvas to share which I had made for my mom for Mother's Day last weekend!

Here it is...


I don't really have a chance to make layouts very often although I do love making them!  And of course they make fantastic gifts too!   For my project,  I started off with a blank white canvas which I painted with some Martha Stewart acrylic paint in "Sea Glass".  I added some Prima paper on top and distressed the edges along with the picture with my Tim Holtz distress tool.   Now the fun part is adding all the embellies.   I added some fabric trim, some Prima trinkets and lots of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.   I think my favorite piece is the little cupid angel at the top corner! :)  I also used a couple of bottles of my Tattered Angels glimmer mist to splatter bits of color all over the layout.  It's a little hard to see in the photo but I thought it came out pretty cool!  

Here is the full supply list for my card:
Sunshine - Prima Marketing
Trinkets and Embellishments - Prima Marketing
Glimmer Mist - Tattered Angels
Distress Tool - Tim Holtz
Sea Glass - Martha Stewart

Hope you enjoyed my project!  Make sure to visit here tomorrow for a new Blog Hop!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  

Hugs,
Marcy

Fabulous Friday Inspiration

Hello Again
I'm back to share a card I created using the  Prima Coffee Break Collection. The gorgeous image I worked around is Fall Willow Catching Leaves. Isn't she just beautiful? I really enjoy coloring her up not only in Fall but anytime of year. I colored her up with my Copic Markers and placed her on a White Prima Doily  that I layered over a brown. I used Coffee Break 6x6 paper pad because, there is some really gorgeous pages in this stack. The Cafe Mocha and Cappuccino Flowers are just perfect! I wish they would make them in every color.
I always use my favorite glue Mono Multi Liquid Glue from Tombow and Candi Fix Foam Pads for dimension. Best Glue Ever works great too! 
I'm so Happy you dropped by! Please come back next Friday :)
You can find these products and more at Loves Rubber Stamps Shop and if you would like to join in the Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge, We would Love to have you!
Have An Awesome Weekend!!

Prima Cards

Hello everyone Shanna here to share some cards. I so was excited when I saw some similar cards made in the same style for Prima. I believe this was a Live With Prima class and it was just a blast watching cards like these being made! 


I first stamped my images on watercolor paper. Then used my Bloom Sprays.
After adding that color I went in with flowers and leave for embellishing.

I Dig You



Hi Friends and Stampers,

I hope all the Mom's out there had a Wonderful Mother's Day!  I worked but after work was a lot of fun.  I want to Thank my Guys for making my Day Special!  

It's A Happy Holly-Day Monday, and time for me to show you some Inspiration.   I had to use my Gnome's again, I just love them!   They are so fun to color.  I used my Silver Wink of stella for the buckle and the shovel.  The red hat doesn't really go with the paper but you know, all Gnome's must have a red hat right? lol.  I had so much fun breaking out my dies and using them in this design.  They just add that special touch.  

I hope you have had time to play in our Anything Goes Challenge!   It's always my favorite one to play in.   And you want to head on over the Loves Rubberstamps Store to see the New Items added! 

Have a great day!

Holly
