Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge: To A Beautiful Friend!


Welcome to a new Loves Rubberstamps Challenge today!  I'm excited to host our theme this week which is Black and White with a Touch of Color!!!  Our fabulous sponsor is Stitchy Bear!

Here's my card...


Stitchy Bear was kind to let us use some of their digis for this week.   I just love these silhouette type images, especially the fairy theme images...just because I LOVE fairies! :)  This image is called Rose Fantasy and I thought she actually worked out perfectly with the theme this week.  I wanted to focus on the image and the theme so I kept my card very simple just using the lightest of pinks to color up her wings.  I also added lots of  Wink of Stella  over the wings to give it lots of shimmer!   For some added touch of my pink color, I added some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and some pink sequins.   

Here are the additional supplies used on my card...
Victorian Velvet - Tim Holtz Distress Ink

Hope you are inspired to join in this week!  If you want to see projects from my fellow DT gals, then visit the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog!

Have a wonderful Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!

Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Saturday: 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!   Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Loves Rubberstamps Saturday Inspiration: Happy Mother's Day!


Hello!  Hope everyone's having a great Saturday and for those of you celebrating Mother's day that it is a fantastic weekend!  Today's I have a simple Mother's Day card I've made in celebration of this special holiday!

Here it is...


I had recently picked up some Wow embossing powder in Gold Rich Pale and I couldn't wait to play with it because I really love the tone of this gold color.   I  used my Versamark ink to stamp some flowers and leaves from a set called Contemporary Roses by My Favorite Things.  I then water colored over them with some Tim Holtz distress inks.  I really soft colors against the gold.  I added Wink of Stella over the flowers and you can't really tell from the photo but there is tons of pretty sparkle here!  To finish off my card, I added some sequins including the fun heart ones from Pretty Pink Posh.  I also tied some pink jute rope in a bow for a bit more splash of color! 

Here is the full supply list for my card:
Versamark Ink - Tusukineko
Mustard Seed-Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Picked Raspberry-Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Peacock Feathers-Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Spiced Marmalade-Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Clear Glitter Brush Marker - Wink of Stella

Happy Mother's Day friends and thanks so much for stopping by!

Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge: At the Beach!


Happy Tuesday Friends and welcome to a new Loves Rubberstamps Challenge for this 1st week of May!  Our challenge this week is the ever so popular "Anything Goes"!!!

Here's my card...


With Summer right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to use this cute mermaid called Monet the Mermaid by A Random Fan!  Not only is she super adorable but just perfect for a Summer card.  I colored her up with my copics and decided to use a new color combo I found for her hair.  I really like how it came out!  I also used a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen all over her for some added sparkle.  I found some papers in my stash from a collection called Summer Soul from Fancy Pants Designs.  They were perfect beach papers for this cute beach girl!  The small flower in her hair is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Since the card was pretty simple, I thought it would be cool to add more dimension with the flower.  And of course I can never resist adding some scattered sequins to the background for fun! 

Here are the additional supplies used on my card...
Salty Ocean - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Mono Multi-Liquid Glue - Tombow

I hope you enjoyed my card and join in on the challenge!  If you want to see what the rest of the DT has come up with or for more details on the challenge, then visit the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog!

  Have a wonderful rest of the week and thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi Friends and Happy Saturday!  I have a fun birthday card to share for today's Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Day!

Here it is...


I couldn't wait to get out the adorable Balloon Kaylee who is always one of my favorite images to color for birthdays.  SOG is one of my favorite stamp companies and their images are so much fun to color.  I colored up Kaylee with my Copic Markers and then added Wink of Stella to parts of her dress to add some sparkle.   I also added some white polka dots to her outfit for some fun dimension.  And recently, I have rediscovered doilies and now I can't stop using them! LOL  I added one as a simple background along with some pretty papers from Basic Grey and a Prima flower I found sitting in my stash.   I also scattered some enamel dots in the background...another fav I've found again! :) 

Here is the full supply list for my card:
Balloon Kaylee - Some Odd Girl
Black Tuxedo - Memento Ink
Red Barn - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Clear Glitter Brush Marker - Wink of Stella

Hello and Happy Saturday!  Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!  I have a card share for you all and here it is...


I'm a big fan of the Gorjuss Girls images which are all so adorable!  It had been a while since I've colored up one of my stamp sets so I was excited to create my inspiration card this week using a very sweet image called "I Gave You My Heart".  I colored this cutie up with my Copic Markers and then added Wink of Stella to parts of her dress to add some sparkle.   I kept it pretty simple just adding the beautiful papers from one of my favorite TC collections called  "Everyday Moments".  I also added a doily from my stash and some blue sequins.  The fun die cut sentiment called  Love & Adore You is from My Favorite Things.  I'm really loving the look of die cut sentiments on my cards!

I Gave You My Heart - Gorjuss Girls
Black Tuxedo - Memento Ink

Happy Tuesday and welcome to a new Loves Rubberstamps challenge!  This week our theme is to "Add Flowers"!

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Art by Miran!

Here is my card...


Art by Miran gave us some very adorable images to play with and I picked this sweet Tulipa!  Isn't she so pretty and I love all the flowers in the background and the tulips she is holding.  Perfect for this challenge, right?!!  I colored up my image with copic markers and then added lots of Wink of Stella all over the flowers and her dress for lots of pretty shimmer.  The gorgeous papers came from my hoard vault and are from a collection called "The Sweetest Thing" by My Mind's Eye.  I just love the floral prints which I thought matched up well with Tulipa!  To finish off my card, I added some pink jute rope, some small pink rhinestones and a multi-colored rose from Wild Orchid Crafts!
