You're So Sweet! - "the little Stamp Shoppe"

I am actually in time for a couple of challenges with this card....The Fabulous "sketch" at Friday Sketchers and the fun theme being "at the sea" at Stamp with Fun.

The stamps I have used for this card are all from Magnolia's Lazy Summers Day Collection 2009

All these stamps are available right now at "the little Stamp Shop". Here are names of the stamps I've used- "Bathing Ring" - "Beach Tilda" and "You're So Sweet".

** "the little Stamp Shoppe" has just had a new shipment of stamps come in... of the Lazy Summer Days Collection and also new ones of the previous collections. Heidi has also received Magnolia's Beautiful Lazy Summers Day Designer Paper!! ...and is offering it in a lovely affordable Sampler pkg!! Be sure to check these Fabulous items and more at...."the little Stamp Shoppe"**

On to the card....Again I've I colored the image with copics for base, prismacolor pencils and h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

Tilda has been masked off so she could sit on the bathing ring. To create the sentiment...I also masked off the adjoining works on the You're So Sweet stamp so I could stamp them out separately...then just tore around them and inked the edges with SU Creamy Caramel ink. I used nesties for the circle and scalloped layer and attached the image circle with foam pop ups onto the scalloped layer. There is shimmerz (Angel wings) brushed on the flowers along the bottom of the image.

Ink - memento black, bashful blue, creamy caramel. Paper - GP white, basic grey "Euphoria", Michael's, bazill cs. Accessories - flowers, lace, glitter brads, shimmerz, ribbon, nesties, stitching, acrylic paint for detail dots.

Today my dear hubby and I have been married for 36 Wonderful years!!....Remember the little "Rock On Honey" card?...well that is the card I gave him for our Anniversary this morning.....and he totally loved it...Yay!! Well I'm off for now....maybe for a little wine...and dine.......

Have a Lovely Day Everyone!!......and Thank you so much for all your Wonderful Comments!!

Rock On Honey!!..Motivet DT

This Super Cute stamp is from Motivet's newest release!....this is Morris playing guitar and you can find him right here. Be sure to visit the Motivet Inspiration Blog to see all the Gorgeous cards and projects the DT has been making....and find out how to win some of these Cute and Fabulous stamps!

I have to tell ya'.....My hubby took a big liking to this stamp as soon as he saw it. And he is a fella that usually just grunts when I show him anything to do with stamping. I bought him a guitar for his Birthday a little over a yr ago....and he plays that noisemaker everyday!! I really don't mind....sometimes he even talks me into singing along. The last time Trina was here.....we had a real blast singing while he played....I mean we literally brought the house down!...LOL...the dogs all hid in the other son went home shortly after we began..(or I should probably say...ran home)...and I'm sure a few neighbors may have closed their windows...but it sure was FUN!!.

On to the card......

I made the base just using a plastic bowl container....I folded the CS...and placed the bowl over it (leaving one rounded edge hanging over the folded edge a tad) and drew around it with a pencil. Then I just cut it out. The finished card is approx. 5.25 inches....and will fit perfectly into my 5.5" square envelopes.

I colored the image with copics for base, prismacolor pencils and h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

I used a label maker for the words. I drew the stars freehand. The image layer and the stars are popped up on foam squares. There is glitter on the guitar.

Ink - memento black, barely banana, creamy caramel. Paper - GP White, treasures CS, provo craft, making memories, Michael's, dcwv. Accessories - button, gold cord, brads, label maker, glitter, netting, stitching, round nestie

The last time I saw my daughter Trina...we did a little stamping together (we can't sing all the loved these little Motivet characters....I understand she already has a card made using one of these keep and eye on her blog...Trina's Timeless Treasures.

Have a Wonderful Weekend!!....and Thank you so much Everyone for all your Lovely Comments!!

P.S....I have been asked in the comment section where I find my lace. I've found some at Joannes fabric...(in the dollar bin)....Walmart..any fabric stores....garage sales.... I've even taken off of old garments. I have also taken apart gathered lace...and ironed it flat. (if you find just the right string...gathered lace will just unravel)...then I use the netting for bows ect.

"Just wanted to tell you"....Motivet

I used last weeks Creative Corner sketch for this card....I am a little late for the challenge....but it was a fun sketch to use anyway!!

Both the stamps on this card are from Motivet....This sweet Doraline is called "Doraline - Sorry" The sentiment is called "I just wanted to say..." I think this little Doraline and this sentiment is so versatile......she looks ready to deliver any I will add one later inside the card.

I've colored Doraline with copics first as a base under my prismacolor pencils. I then used h20's to deepen the shade..and add a little sparkle. *(Please not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the was from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

Both the nestie panel, Doraline and the main flower is popped up on foam dimensionals. I've also placed one under the center of the raise it. I've used diamond glaze on the bow and shoes ...(can hardly see it in the photo though)

I cut out the pink felt flower with my flower spellbinders die. It worked perfectly!! I discovered a container full of felt sheets I had stored away from my older crafting days....Thank goodness I never threw them out. It really made my day to find them...I tell ya'

Ink - memento black, bashful blue, creamy caramel

Paper - GP white, treasures CS, My Minds Eye, Basic Grey

Accessories - dew drops, flowers, felt, trim, lace, buttons, MS leaf punch, SU flower punch, pearls, stitching, embroidery thread, diamond glaze.

Have a Great Day Everyone!!...and Thank you so much for your Lovely Comments!!!
