Sensational Sunday Inspirations

Hi Stampers - 

I have been making slow but steady progress on getting orders shipped out and am almost caught up finally. I will be off work from my other job after Thursday this coming week for 3 weeks so I am hoping whatever is left to catch up I will be able to get it knocked out the first few days I am off. That is my plan :)

Grandma is still doing good and hanging in there. We did get some sad news about a friend of ours. She will be going in for surgery on her pituitary gland as they found a tumor on it. Not sure yet if it is cancerous or not so we will be praying for good news and that everything goes ok for her. 

Do you have any 4th of July plans this year? I FINALLY have the night off and then my husband has to work the overnight shift. Figures! Since I LOVE fireworks! So I plan on taking him a blizzard to his work and we will watch the fireworks from the top of the Power Plant where he works. I am scared of heights so it will be terrifying - LOL!

I think this is so adorable and Marcy's coloring is STUNNING! I always love the way she does her black hair, always looks amazing! This was created for one of our past challenges on the challenge blog. Here are the items that Marcy used on her card:


Top Hat Steampunk Marci - La La Land Crafts
Steampunk Corner Die - La La Land Crafts
Stitched Tabs Die Set of 3 - La La Land Crafts

Hello, Friend!


Happy Saturday Friends!  Today, I have a fun card share for you.  Hope you like it!

And here it is...


I love the Cheeky Cherry Collection from The Greeting Farm and this is one image I don't feel I use enough!  But she is really so adorable and caught my eye when I was looking for images to use for today!  This is Cheeky Chat!  With the life being so busy these days,  I think many of us rely on technology like emails or texting. What would I do without texting every day?!!! LOL  But that's why this image really makes me remember the good ol' days when I used to actually love to pick up the phone and talk for hours...especially with my BFF! :)  I  know I need to do more of that and this image really did make me smile!  After coloring up this cutie with my copic markers, I then added  Wink of Stella over parts of her outfit to give her some shimmer.   The fun papers I used are called Hey Kid by Pink Paislee.  I think the cheerful bright colors and cool design went well as a background for her. To finish off my card, I used an older MFT stamp set called "Ring Me" for my sentiment.  I also added some sequins and twine.

Here is the full supply list for my card:
Cheeky Chat - The Greeting Farm
Mustard Seed - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Steel Grey Hybrid Ink - My Favorite Things
Ring Me Stamp Set - My Favorite Things
Hey Kid - Pink Paislee

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Hugs,
Marcy

Fabulous Friday Inspiration


Hello There
I'm so glad you came by to visit. This week is a little ATC. I was trying to make a few but, I spilled my Dylusions Ink Spray VIBRANT TURQUOISE all over the other two and Boy am I glad I always like to use my INKSSENTIALS REUSABLE NON STICK CRAFT SHEET. It was such a life saver!
 The paper used is from the Epiphany Collection and the flowers are MANIFEST Flowers Prima. The diecut flower is from the Lacy Flowers Die Set. I did a bit of stenciling then I put it all together with Candi Fix Foam Pads & Mono Multi Liquid Glue.
I hope you enjoyed your visit! Be sure to stop & Shop Loves Rubber Stamps Shop! Please check out our

Otterly Great Birthday


Hi Friends and Stampers,

It's a fine Holly-Day Monday and my turn to post.  Today I am sharing a Video Tutorial I came across on Happy Thoughts and Inkspots.  I just happened to have that Grunge Stamp as well, lol.

Lawn Fawn - Year Five
Another yellow to substitute for Distress Ink - Squeezed Lemonade
Water color Paper
White Embossing Powder

The Newest Lawn Fawn has not been added to The Loves Rubberstamp Store just yet.  Laura is plugging away to get caught up on Shipping Orders, and then will tackle the emails she is behind on, and then when things start to balance out, she will be adding the newest items.  In the mean time, if you would like to order this, feel free to shoot her an email and she will get back to you as soon as she can.  

The first time I tried this technique, I had a piece of PTI heavyweight card stock and the colors were very bold.  So I went to my stash and I did have some water color paper.  So I pulled it out and tried a lighter touch and yes, the paper made all the difference in the world.  I think I'll keep working on the technique as I do love the effect.  

I hope you all have a great day!

Holly

Sensational Sunday Inspirations + CANDY

Hi Stampers - 

I have been making slow but steady progress on getting orders shipped out. Grandma was able to come home a week ago Friday. This week has been full of Dr. Appts (she is having to get some platelet transfusions) she also had physical therapy twice. She is continuing to do well so far so that is great.

I should be very close to completely caught up with things by the end of the week :) I am so sorry that it is taking so long but I am going as quickly as I can! Thank you for the continued thoughts, prayers and patience with this situation with Grandma! It means the world to us!

Happy Father's Day!

Hello Friends!  Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!  In preparation of the Father's Day Holiday coming up, I thought I'd create a Father's Day card for my share today!


And here it is...


I had so much fun water coloring with my distress markers for the last card that I couldn't resist making another card with a water colored background!  For this one, I used a background stamp I have in my stash and stamped it onto some Tim Holtz water color paper using my Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad.  I then added some white embossing powder from Recollections and heat set it.  Over this cool design, I water colored over it with my distress inks and water using some colors I thought would make a good background for a masculine card.  The colors I used were Pumice Stone, Faded Jeans and Black Soot.  I really love the way they blended together so well!  I added some splattered ink to parts of it for a fun effect!  The sentiment came from a Winnie & Walter Set called "The Big, the Bold & You".  I also embossed this sentiment and used some Sparkle Black Ranger embossing powder for this.  The die cut used for the background is from MFT called Warm Wishes Die-Namics.  To finish off my card, I added some enamel dots and twine.

Here is the full supply list for my card:
Faded Jeans - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Black Soot - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Pumice Stone -Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Warm Wishes Die-Namics - My Favorite Things
Water Color Paper - Tim Holtz
Black Sparkle Embossing Powder -Ranger
The Big, the Bold & You - Winnie & Walter

For those of you celebrating Father's Day, I hope the "Dads" in your family have a special day and that you all have a wonderful celebration!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
Marcy

Fabulous Friday Inspiration


Hey There Friends!
It's that time again and I have something fun to share with you. I was playing with the Epiphany Collection from Prima again and this is what I came up with. I pulled out Multi Purpose Craft Sheeet and got to inking up my card base. I then used Epiphany Cling Rubber Stamp Set Prima with the Bubble Stencil and Black Sand Texture Paste. I layered 2 pieces of the Epiphany 3x4 Journaling Note Cards. I placed a Lacy Flowers Die on the the doily and added some Petaloo Flowers.
I would like to Thank You for dropping by and hope you'll visit the 
and for the products listed here and more visit

You + Me

Hi Friends and Stampers,

Happy Holly-Day Monday!  It's my turn to show you some inspiration.

Today is Joe and I's,  13 Anniversary!  We both work but I think we might watch TV and fall asleep together tonight, lol.


I saw these two stamp sets used together on the Lawn Fawn Blog and had to come up with my own design.  The paper is much lighter but got darker in my picture.  

These past 13 years have been so filled with life and love.  There is literally never a dull moment here, lol.   Even when Joe and I would prefer dull, lol.  But the thing is, I would not have it any other way.  

I hope you have a scrappy day!

Holly

Sensational Sunday Inspirations

Hi Stampers - 

I am trying to post this from my kindle so hopefully it works. My computer was doing an update and froze during the middle of it and now I can't get windows to load so it won't do anything but give me a black screen and then a "Windows did not load properly" error message screen :( I am going to have to try and figure out what to do with it in the morning. I will update this post later today with our winner for the month of May and on what has been happening here this week. I will have to use the hubby's computer if I can't figure out what the heck to do with mine :(

Happy Graduation!


Happy Saturday Friends!  Hope you've had a wonderful week and are starting a great weekend!  For my kids, it is the last week of school so we've been so busy with school events and graduations.  2 of my sons graduated the last few days from middle school and elementary school.  The schools over here have promotion ceremonies for this which are so so special and fun to watch!

So my share today are a few very simple graduation cards I created for my kids in celebration of their milestone events!

Here they are...



The 2 adorable graduate images are Graduation Luka from La La Land Crafts and Grad Ian (digi) from The Greeting Farm.  Both are so perfect for these celebration cards!  I colored both images up with my copics and kept the cards very CAS to really just focus in on the fun images and the special graduation theme.

Here is the full supply list for my card:
Graduation Luka - La La Land Crafts
Grad Ian - The Greeting Farm

For all of you celebrating 2015 graduations,  a big congratulations to your celebrants and to your families! 

Hugs,
Marcy
