Inky No DP Lily

Inky Impressions challenge this week is no designer paper.
 I used alternating card stocks. It was a little too plain so then I embossed it with a flower pattern.
I used Butterfly Lili. I colored her with Copics. I do love looking at her. She is so cute.

Mist Heart Cards

I was in the mood to use my color sprays so I decided to make some cards to send to OWH. These are the only two colors I have that don't contain glitter. I used a paper mask I had left over from cutting something out with my Spellbinders on the top card. I used the purple only on the background and the green only on the heart. The bow came out perfect. I added a Jaded Blossom sentiment and a Heidi Swapp heart.
This one I sprayed both colors randomly and added only purple to the Heidi Swapp heart. I add some matching twine and a Pink By Design sentiment.

Both of these cards are on their way to Operation Write Home.

Blue Heart ~You+Me

I was experimenting with my alcohol inks and was not incredibly pleased with the results so I got out my circle punch and cut up the page I made. The circles looked a lot better than the layout did. I used some blue ink to distress the edges. It was a little to CAS so I added a strip of embossed paper and the blue Heidi Swapp heart. I also used alcohol ink on the heart. I added a Pink by Design sentiment that I love to use on cards I am sending into Operation Write Home.

TSB New Release

There are lots of new release stamps this month over at The Stamping Boutique. I used two of them to share with you today.
 
 This first image is Egg Chick. I added some color with Copics. I inked the edge of the image.
Another cutie...
This is Momma Chick. I added color with my Copics. I was so busy coloring all the baby bellies that I just plain forgot to color the belly of the momma, just noticed looking at it now. LOL.
The paper on these cards is from The Paper Studio pack I just bought this week. The sentiments on these cards are by Pink by Design. They fit so well with these cards that are going to OWH.

IS ~ Sit & Read

 I made a simple card today. Sometimes the stamps with the perfect paper are all you need. I used Bazzill Vintage paper. The stamps are Inspired Stamps.
This one is from the very popular Hymn line. This is Hymn Girls: Sit and Read
This stamp is one of my favorite because it makes me think of one of my favorite songs by Chris Tomlin. Romans 8:31 is distressed around the edges.

Inky Summer Bright

Inky Impressions challenge this week is summer bright.
 Yellow always reminds me of summer. I used my new Spellbinders to cut out the yellow center and embossed it with butterflies and flowers. The heart brad says love and was perfect for this card. I used a Jaded Blossom Simple Sayings sentiment.
This image is Butterfly Lili. I love her. I colored her with Copics. 
I am trying to make some more missing you cards for OWH. I love how this one came out.

GDT Charming Farm Girl

Card Mania's challenge this week is to add a charm.
I was in a patriotic mood apparently.
The sponsor this challenge is Kenny K. This image is Farmers Daughter. I colored her with Copics and inked the edge. I used a corner punch on two corners to change the shape up a bit.  I added a charm with some twine over the shape cut out. I used my Spellbinders to cut the blue star paper.

Pink Onesies Card

The hubby gave me like 20 minutes to make this card. You know the request for a card right before they have to give it to someone. Or the right before bed oh ya I need a card in the morning for tomorrow morning before I leave for work request. Does anyone else get these last minute requests or is it just me?
Anyhoo with little time I came up with this and have to say not bad. :)
I used Jaded Blossom stamps on the front of the card. The sentiment from one of the Simple Sayings sets and candies stamps from the baby set. I added them onto the onsies.
The onsies are from the 9 Months Cricut cartridge. Luckily I had some cut out already from decorating my friends baby shower.
The inside has a Jaded Blossoms stamp (congrats) from one of the Simple Saying sets and a Pink by Design sentiment from a baby set.

Teacher Tumbler

 
 
I made this tumbler a while back but havent had the chance to post it yet. The apple is a Silhouette Studio image I purchased long ago.
I cut the glitter green vinyl from Joann's with my Cameo. I was not a fan of this vinyl and had a terrible time transferring it. Overall it came out ok for my first try.

IS New Release Time

This month Inspired Stamps has some great new release stamps. There are a couple more Hymn girls to join the other cuties. This one is Hymn Girls Sitting Right. The girl and the scripture come together. I added a little color with my Copics. I used Distress Ink around the image and scripture. I hand cut the girl out and used my Spellbinders to cut out the scripture. I added some twine ribbon and a couple heart brads. The paper was some scrap I had left over.

Inky Summer Fun

Inky Impressions challenge this week is Summer Fun.
This bright cheery card is very summery. I used yellow paper for a summer feel. Fishing is very summery, a little metal sun and SUNshine, lol. I took the summer theme seriously with this one.
This image is Angelica Fishing. I colored her with Copics.
I used some twine to hold this metal sun. I was excited when I looked through my stuff and found this charm. I added a Jaded Blossom sentiment. This is one of my favorites to use on cards I am sending to OWH. I hope someone enjoys this one.

IS Red White and Blue Time

I have made several red, white and blue cards. I like to stay away from 4th of July on these since I donate these to OWH. I really like this Hymn Girl Patriotic w Star from Inspired Stamps because the flag is blank and I can put whatever I want in there. I love to use 1" circle sentiments inside the flag. They fit perfectly and have some perfect saying to send to the soldiers families. I colored the girl with Copics and inked the edges. The paper is from my stash that I have had for years, literally.
