If the Shoe Fits and Moxie Fab

Hi, everyone!  Today I have a card made using some lovely Layers of Color stamps!  LOC is sponsoring the  If the Shoe Fits Challenge this week so make sure to play along for a chance to win some fabulous LOC stamps!  I am also entering this card into the Moxie Fab World "Botanicals" Challenge.  :)

Here is the card I made for this challenge:
So, whaddya think?  Definitely GREEN!  Ha!

I used LOC newly released Encouragement clear art stamp for the main verse.

In this close up, you can see my favorite LOC stencil, Natural Flourish (unfortunately, they are currently sold out of this one), and faintly in the background, stamped in Memento New Sprout is the lovely flower image from the newly released Artful Endearments.

In this shot, we have one of my favorite images from Granny's Jewelry and one of the leaf images from Flowering Gems.  

I absolutely LOVE creating with my LOC stamps--the possibilities for gorgeousness are endless!!!  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by, it is always a pleasure to read you comments!
Blessings, Janice

Basket Buddies and Heartfelt stamp sets

Welcome back, everyone!  Today we get to showcase two wonderful new sets. First off, we have Basket Buddies illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger:
Isn't it cute?  If you're a pet lover or know someone who is, this set is just perfect.

Here is a card I made using the cats image:
Everyone together now, "Awwwwww..."  :)  Aren't they cute? 

I colored these kitties using Copic markers.  

Next up is Heartfelt by Theresa Momber:
This is just such a great fall set.  From the fabulous pumpkins to the fall leaves and beautiful flowers---just an overall wonderful fall set!

Here is the card I made using a few of its images:
 Don't you just love that picket fence?  I went the "easy" route and chose to leave it white.  Lol!  I just stamped it in Memento Rich Cocoa twice then cut it out--no coloring needed!  ;)

I stamped the flowers twice coloring both layers with Copic markers then cutting out the second layer and adhering it to the card with pop dots for that added dimension.

Hope you'be been inspired to create something beautiful!  Now, hop on over to see what our other fabulous designers have created for you!

    Falling for You StampTV kit!!!!

    Welcome everyone to Gina K Design's August Release Inspiration Blog Hop (phew! that was a mouthful!)

    Today we get the pleasure of showcasing this month's StampTV kit: Falling for You:
    Isn't is just awesome?!  I SO love it!!!  Look at that cute chicken!!  And the frog, and the trees, and those leaves, and flowers, and yeah, everything!  Ha!

    Here is a card I made using the cute chicken image:
    I loved that image so much I stamped her twice!  :)  To get her facing the other direction I used a mirror image stamp.  Now, in case you are wanting to do the same be forewarned: I have not mastered getting a super CLEAR image when using the mirror image stamp.  It usually comes out fairly fuzzy but what I do is outline it with a black pen where it needs it and it works out just fine--you just can't be a perfectionist when it comes to this technique.  ;)

    And a close up of miss thing:


    I couldn't just make one card so I used the whimsical flower image and tree branch for my next card:

    Well, there you have it!  Hop on over to the other Design Team member's blogs to check out the inspiration they have created for you!
