Somebuggy Loves You ~ SNSSIC24, SC369

Stamps: Somebuggy loves you
Papers: Basic Grey, EP, SU
Inks: Memento, copics, Distress inks
accessories: SNSS die, Spellbinder die, SU Punch, Pearls
Happy Friday!! Another card featuring SNS Somebuggy loves you! Each week in the member forum, there's an inspiration challenge...this week it is using this photo
My dark blue does not show up so well on my card, but I assure you it is blue all the way! My base is Basic Gray CS and pulled dsp from Basic Grey & Echo Park to complete my colour combo!  These little ladies are so cute...I wanted to make a motion card, so I stamped and coloured each one a shade lighter. Love the touch of red in the photo so I opted red would be minimal...coloured my pearls with R89! I feel so accomplished! I distressed the edges of the dsp and began to layer my colours onto the base. Fun sketch to work with!
If you look closely, you can see the new heart scallop die offered in a bundle with its partner the star scallop die along with teh coordinating dies hearts/stars. They are so fun to use!

Head on over to the members forum on Splitcoast and join us each week!

Coffee & Donuts BFF ~ SCS368

stamps: you&me
papers: MME Hattie, SU
Inks: Memento, Copics, SU
accessories: twine, crystal lacquer, su punches, cb folder
I {heart} sketches when I am lacking in my creative layout and design. This sketch is from Splitcoaststampers, SCS368 came in very handy with this cute and donuts...mmm..don'tcha just taste it? You & Me is one of the latest releases from Sweet'n Sassy stamps. There are more images that come with that set and they are adorable!

I coloured these little cuties with my copics and lacquered the donut with crystal effects to give it that sticky glaze...oh yum! I wrapped some of my twine for some embellishment and to tie things up a little. The background is embossed with d'vine swirls that reminded me of the steam in the coffee mug.

Thank you so much for swinging by! Enjoy your day :-)

Girly Girl ~ You're Beautiful!

Happy Monday everyone! Why not begin our week with some pampering with Cookie? Every Girl loves to be pampered, Cookie is no different. She is coloured using copics and her goodies are covered with sparkly glitter.

I simply covered the areas I wanted to sparkle with art glitter adhesive and poured opaque glitter over it. Then I tapped off the excess and allowed it to dry. I circle cut out Cookie and fussy cut out her tail and her accessories. The edges are sponged with ink. The MME dp didn't need much altering so I simply stamped my sentiment onto matching paper and gave it some dimension.

You can recieve Girly Girl Cookie when your order totals $50 or more before S&H&Tx this month. Why not check out the latest releases while you're there.

Thank you for looking!

The Few, The Proud - ODBDLYLS13

Stamps: ODBD Old Flag BG, Not Forgotten, Porch
Papers: Bazzil, SU, Reminisce
Dies: Spellbinder Sunflower set II, ODB Vintage Border, Cheery Lynn Patriotic Swag, SU die
Accessories: Zva creative, SU brad, MS punch, KCo Rhinestones 

My Complete layout for Our Daily Bread Designs scrapbook challenge ODBDLYLS13. I dedicate this and created this in honour of our Marine son who is pending deployment. We are so very proud of him. 
A close up view of the layout...Love this scripture from I Tim. I stamped it onto a transparency using Stazon and fastened it using a star brad from SU.  The challenge was to use ODBD stamps be the focal image. I started by stamping my 12x12 with the Old Flag BG stamp then I trimmed it down so I could punch the edges with MS punch. I layered it onto the reminisce dp and reserved the Marine title for the bottom edge. I finally used my CL Patriotic Swag die! I love how it turned out. I topped the edge with ODB Vintage border die. For the 3-D flowers I found this tutorial by a talented scrapbook artist. I sprayed my flowers with Tim Holtz Perfect Pearl mist. I filled the centres with micro beads in patriotic colours to match my scheme.
In December I won a generous pack of Zva pearls, swirls, rhinestones etc...such a happy girl I was to be chosen as a winner from Nicole Martel's blog. So, I was delighted to have picking choice for this layout.

Here is the inspiration photo:

Thank you for visiting, Have a great weekend :-)
