Just A Swingin'

I hope your holiday weekend was as good as mine!!! AWESOME...and even with the long three-day weekend I still ran out of time before I accomplished everything on my list. How does that happen? LOL!

I took a little time to play yesterday using this new Stampendous cling mounted stamp called Tree Swing . How sweet is that!?!

I stamped the image on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine Ink , then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The image was colored using Tombow Markers .

The sun was cut and embossed using My Favorite Things Sunshine Die-Namics die. The designer paper on this card is all from the Pink Paislee Hometown Summer 6 x 6 Paper Pad. The button is from my stash, and the Red Burlap String threaded through the button is from May Arts.

If not before, I will be back Wednesday morning with an important announcement. Until then...

Fishing Friends

I hope you all had a great Sunday afternoon! The weather is gorgeous here and I felt like making something cheery, so I chose to color this adorable Penny Black stamp called Fishing Friends !

I stamped the image on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder, then colored with Tombow Markers . I photographed the markers I used and posted them for you below.

The sentiment is from JustRite Stamper's Be Happy borders and centers set. I used my Charms Custom Dies from JustRite to cut the sentiment, then tied a bow using May Arts Red Burlap String .

All designer paper is from the October Afternoon Seaside 8 x 8 Paper Pad . The cardstock is Prismatics Classic Red and Nautical Blue Dark .

And these are the Tombow Markers I used to color the image. You can click on it to enlarge if you need to see the numbers a little better.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today! It's going to be a busy week for me, but I will be back as soon as I can. Until then...

Hugs to you!

I hope this finds you all doing well. I know I haven't been posting quite as much lately...but studio time has been hard to come by. And it seems that keeping all the balls in the air is a major feat a times. Bear with me, will you? I'm hurrying as fast as I can. :)

For this card the main image is Stampendous Flower Fields cling mounted stamp. I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine Ink , embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder, then colored with Tombow Markers . The large yellow flower was stamped and layered with foam tape twice more. I added a Webster's Pages Rose & Pearl vintage sparkler to the center.

The main image panel was cut and embossed with Spellbinders Labels Eight Nestability. The panel behind it is Spellbinders Labels Seventeen . All designer paper is from the Crate Paper Portrait 6 x 6 paper pad.

The sentiment I used is from the JustRite Stampers Hugs to You large oval set. I added another of the Webster's Pages Rose & Pearl Vintage Sparklers to embellish. Distressing was added to the edges of the paper with Tim Holtz Distress Inks .

Thanks so much for taking the time out of your day to stop by! I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!

A Prayer For You

I hope you all had a great weekend! I know I did! But after my vacation and a little time spent playing with friends and family, it's back to reality now, and time to face the inevitable workload that's been piling up. Sad, but true!

For my card today I used the new JustRite Stampers Hugs to You ovals and centers stamp set. The borders and centers are simply perfect for so many occasions!

I stamped both the oval background and the sentiment on Prismatics Birchtone Light cardstock using StazOn Timber Brown Ink. I embellished the filigree oval with Kaisercraft Pewter Pearls , and distressed the edges a bit with Tim Holtz Distsress Ink . The layer behind the oval is Birchtone Dark cardstock cut and embossed with the NEW Spellbinders Labels Four Small Nestabilities. The Birchtone Light layer behind that one was cut and embossed with Spellbinders Labels Four .

I added a Zva Creative Taupe Pearl Flourish to the top left corner. The red flower is from the Prima Symphony Blend Acceso Red flower package.

The designer paper is from Crate Paper's Portrait Collection ! The ribbon and trim I used is May Arts Gold Woven Velvet and Prima Marketing Alencon Lace Trim .

This is a shot of the inside where I used the smallest of the Spellbinders Labels Four Grand Nestabilities. Again, I distressed the edges with some Tim Holtz Distress Inks for definition. The border is a scrap of paper from the Crate Paper Portrait Collection Paper that I had left from the front of my card.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you all have a fabulous week!
