Loves Rubberstamps Saturday Inspiration: Amazing, Beautiful, Fabulous YOU!


Happy Saturday Friends!  I'm here with a fun card share for today.  I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend so far!

Here is my card...


I had been making so many Valentine's Day cards for the last month that it felt a little odd at first to make something completely different!  Well that didn't last too long when I took out my bin of cute MFT Pure Innocence stamp sets!  These images are so adorable and so much fun to color up with my copics.  This PI girl comes from a set called Make a Wish.  After coloring, I cut her out on stitched circle die and then added some handmade banners made using the gorgeous Fabulous collection by Simple Stories.  The kraft background is embossed with some polka dots and I also used my white gel pen to run some stitches around the border.  I added a few enamel dots to finish off my card.

Here is the full supply list for my card:
Make a Wish - PI Collection by My Favorite Things
Fabulous - Simple Stories
Mustard Seed - Tim Holtz distress ink
Black Tuxedo - Memento Ink

Make sure to check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see all of the Pure Innocence collection stamp sets by My Favorite Things!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Saturday!

Loves Rubberstamps Saturday Inspiration: Vintage tags using distress inks


Hi Friends and Happy Saturday!!! I have something a little different from my usual card to share with you all today!

Here are some vintage tags I've made using my distress inks...



So when I first started making cards, my style was very much different from how I create today.  I would say it was more of a vintage grunge style.  I definitely couldn't do without my distress inks and I loved to layer and use flowers in everything I made.  Now with distress inks as popular as ever as well as stencils, pastes, sprays, water coloring, background stamps etc..., I've been having so much fun creating different backgrounds with all of my art media supplies! I also love layering whenever I have a chance which is perfect with these types of projects! 

Here are the supplies used:
Victorian Velvet - Tim Holtz distress ink
Spun Sugar - Tim Holtz distress ink
Vintage Photo - Tim Holtz distress ink
Dried Marigold - Tim Holtz distress ink
Black Soot - Tim Holtz distress ink
Butterfly punch - Martha Stewart 
Black Sparkling Embossing Powder - Ranger
Black Tuxedo - Memento Ink
Multi- Medium Matte glue - Ranger
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts

Hope this gives you some inspiration to get grungy with your inks!

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

Hugs,
Marcy

Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge: Adore You!



Hello and Happy Tuesday Friends!  Today starts a new Loves Rubberstamps Challenge and the theme is "Let it Sparkle"!

Here is my card...


This week's theme was my pick and since I always love to add lots of sparkle, this was super fun for me!  For my background, I used the BG Gingham Background stamp from MFT embossed on some white card stock and then covered with some pretty distress inks.  I actually sprayed some glimmer mist from my stash which got the colors flowing to give it that water color effect.  I decided to make a shaker card so I could fill the shaker with lots of pretty sequins and then decided to scatter a few more on the top of the card for added sparkle!  I took the Die-Namics Love and Adore You die set by My Favorite Things to create my sentiment with some fun blue glitter paper from my stash. I then added some twine and lots of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers also sprayed with the glimmer mist. 

Here are the additional supplies used on my card: 
Salty Ocean -Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Broken China - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Faded Jeans - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Ripe Persimmons - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Squeezed Lemonade - Tim Holtz Distress Ink


We have a very special GUEST SPONSOR this week who will be providing an awesome prize to our winner as well!

Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Saturday and Happy Valentine's Day!


Hello Friends and Happy Valentine's day!   I hope you all have some fun plans today...whether you're spending it with one special person, your family or even just doing something special for yourself, I hope it's a sweet one!!! :)  And of course, to celebrate this special holiday, I couldn't NOT make a Valentine's day card, right?!!

So here it is...


You might have recognized that I made a similar card a few weeks ago....well actually the background was similar!  I just love making these water color backgrounds and playing with my distress inks!!!   I took some water color paper and then added lots of water and some fun Tim Holtz distress inks in shades of pinks and purples.  I then took some water droplets to splatter all over my card and picked them up with a paper towel.  The resist effect the distress inks have with this technique is pretty cool.  You can't really see it in the photo but you can really see it up close!  The adorable image on my card is by The Greeting Farm and she is from the Bean collection.  This cutie is called Sweetie Bean and one of my all time favorite images for Valentine's Day!  I had so much fun coloring her up with my Copics.  I added lots of Wink of Stella all over her outfit and her heart garland to give her lots of shimmer.  The sentiment was stamped onto my paper using Versamark Ink and then embossed with some Ranger black sparkling powder.  I finished off my card with some fun colorful sequins.

Here is the full supply list for my card:
Sweetie Bean - The Greeting Farm
Seedless Preserves - Tim Holtz distress ink
Picked Raspberry - Tim Holtz distress ink
Spun Sugar - Tim Holtz distress ink
Shaded Lilac - Tim Holtz distress ink
Black Sparkling Embossing Powder - Ranger
Black Tuxedo - Memento Ink

Hope you give these water color backgrounds a try!

Have a great  Valentine's Day weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
Marcy

Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Day: Love You!

Happy Saturday Friends! It's my Inspiration Day over at Loves Rubberstamps and I have a fun card share for you all today!  I hope you're all having a fantastic weekend!

Here is my card...


 Today, I have created a fun Valentine's card using the adorable Pure Innocence image called "Love You with All My Heart" by My Favorite things.  It's been a while since I've used one of these darling images and I had so much fun creating with this cutie! I colored her up with my copic markers and then paper pieced her dress and the heart she is is holding.  I also added some Wink of Stella to her shoes and her hair clip.  The fun papers I used are from Doodlebug Design called "Sweetheart".  These papers are definitely one of my favorite collections for V-Day and I just love them!  I created a cute heart border on the bottom using my  Martha Stewart heart punch border.  Now for the sentiment "Love You", this was created using the My Favorite Things new DIE-NAMICS set called Love & Adore You Die Set.  I  think it's such a fun and different look to use die cuts for sentiments rather than just stamping them which I tend to do.  To finish off my card, I added some scattered sequins and a pink heart button from my stash with some rope twine tied in a bow

Here is the full supply list for my card:
Love You With All My Heart - Pure Innocence CollectionMy Favorite Things
Friends are Flowers - Tiddly Inks
Sweetheart - Doodlebug Design
Spun Sugar - Tim Holtz distress ink
Heart Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Black Tuxedo - Memento Ink

Make sure to check out the Loves Rubberstamps store for all of the awesome stamps and Die-Namics by My Favorite Things which have just been recently added!

Hope you all enjoyed my V-Day card and have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,

Marcy
