Stamper's Dream Blog Hop with JustRite!

Welcome to the Stamper's Dream Blog Hop! Today we are hopping with the JustRite Blogging team, hoping to bring you some inspiration!

For my card I used the JustRite Vintage Ovals cling mounted set. I stamped using StazOn Timber Brown ink, and used Prisma Colored Pencils and Gamsol to color. The images were cut and embossed using Spellbinders Petite Ovals. The edges were distressed using Tea Dye Distress Ink .

The green layer behind the ovals is Sage Medium Prismataics cardstock cut with Baroque Bigz Sizzix die. I embossed it using one of the Tim Holtz Texture Fades .

The flowers are from the Kaisercraft Paper Blooms collection. These are the Honey Paper Blooms. I absolutely love them...and all the colors they offer are just gorgeous!

The designer paper is from the Crate Paper Portrait Collection . To soften the paper I used a piece of ochre vellum, and added brads to the corners.

This is just a closeup to show you the texture and dimension.

The Crew!

I had "The Crew" here, so I made them stop long enough to let me snap a quick picture. All of them are mine, except the two (twins) on the far right. Only my oldest son was missing...and we did miss him! Needless to say, things were hoppin' at Mimi's house today! I sure do love those guys! How blessed am I!!! :)

So...due to an unexpected interruption in service {grin} I don't have a card for you today. BUT tomorrow the The Dream Team from Stamper's Dream is hopping with the JustRite Blog Team. Please be sure to join us for some inspiration and some great candy?

Until then...

Fairy Good Day

It's a fairy good day is yours going?

I stole a little time to make a card this week. I needed the therapy. LOL! So I chose this sweet little My Favorite Things Believe in Magic Pure Innocence girl. After stamping her on watercolor paper with Onyx Black Versafine ink, I colored with Tombow Markers then added a little Stardust Stickles to her wings and a Mini Rhinestone to her wand.

The pink oval frame is Vibrant Pink Prismatics cut and embossed with a Spellbinders Big Scalloped Oval Nestability.

The border on the inside is MFT's Little Open Scallop Strip Die-Namic . The designer paper is from the Kaisercraft Candy Lane 6 x 6 paper pad. And that sweet little White Rose Organza Ribbon on the front is by Maya Road.

And these are the Tombow Markers I used to color the image. I'm pretty proud of myself for remembering to photograph them. Ha!

Gotta run...I'm out the door for my pre-op for Lasik surgery next week. :)

So nice!

Yes...the weekend was soooooo nice! The weather was beautiful here, I'm LOVING the change to daylight savings time, and I managed to get my new iPad2! Life is good! Will you pleezzzzze remind me I said that next weekend when I'm tearing my hair out over my income tax return? Ha!
I made this card today, and even participated in The Sweet Stop Sketch challenge. The images are from the Penny Black Paint The Town clear stamp set. Honestly, there are so many adorable images in that set it was hard to decide which to use first!

I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder, and colored using Tombow Markers . A picture of the ones I used is below.

The designer papers are all from the Kaisercraft Candy Lane 6 x 6 paper pad . It includes such gorgeous spring colors, and the scalloped border I used is in the pad as well. To make the flower I used MFT's Flower and Leaf Trio Die-Namics . I put a Dew Drop in the center that had been colored with a Copic Marker. The ribbon is May Arts Celery 3/8" Satin .

This is a picture of the Tombow Markers I used. Please note that the four flowers I colored are all different shades of ONE marker, Tombow #703. I achieved the change in intensity with the marker by using more or less ink and water to color.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope your weekend was *so nice* as well.

Tim Holtz Cling Mounted Stamps!

Have you seen the new Tim Holtz Cling Stamps ? Oh my gosh, they are simply fabulous!

And if you haven't watched the Tim Holtz CHA Video showing how to use the Reflections Cling Set you are really missing out! (Do you see that all the fonts are backwards?) It's AWESOME!

Hello Dear!

Hey there! I hope you all had a great weekend. I can't bear to think that it's almost over so soon! I managed to get some "store things" done. I even stole a little time to make this card! And I have to tell you, I haven't stamped in a while, so it felt really good to get inky! :)

The main image on this card is Penny Black's Hello Dear cling mounted stamp. I inked it with Onyx Black Versafine ink, stamped on watercolor paper, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

I watercolored with Tombow Markers using a damp paint brush to blend. I photographed the ones I used for you. Can you believe I remembered to do that? Ha!

The sentiment is from the JustRite Stampers Kindness cling mounted stamp set. I used Spellbinders classic circles and Scalloped Circles to cut and frame it.

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Olivia 6 x 6 paper pad. The cardstock is from my stash.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. I will be back soon with something new. Until then...
