words of inspiration

I know I always say how much I love the new stamps, but these are AMAZING and are great for so many different cards for both guys and girls!  I stamped my sentiment in Memento ink and then die cut it and layered the card up (love those layers!) and added a pretty felt flower and a bunch of pearls to finish it off!

Sparkle Creations 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps 3rd  Anniversary Hop! Not only are we here to help Sparkle celebrate 3 years of SCRS, but we are also officially releasing 4 new SCRS images this month — Paris Lucy,  London Charlotte, New York Josh, and Seattle Chloe. They are ALL available in the store NOW!

We have assembled an all-star lineup consisting of our Current Design Team, DT Alumni and Guest Designers. Click on all the links below to participate in our anniversary blog hop!

I can not believe it has already been 3 years since Sparkle launched SCRS and I am thrilled to help her celebrate!  I was torn as to which image to use for the hop today, I adore Lucy (I even named our new cat Lucy!), but Seattle Chloe has a special place in my heart and I had to use her.  It totally made me think of Sparkle, Suzanne, Thanh, Aileen and I getting together for our crafty shopping weekends with LOTS of coffee from Starbucks!  It also reminded me of when I took the advanced Copic certification class with Sparkle we went to Starbucks 4 times in one day!  Yes, we love our coffee!

Hey everyone!  Today is a hard day for me, as many of you know just I lost my Mom on April 2nd to a 4 1/2 year battle to colon cancer.  She really was my best friend, I talked to her every day about everything and anything.  I have been wanting to post, but just did not know what to say, my heart is broken and I miss her every single moment of everyday.  Mother’s day and all the advertising, cards, posts have been so hard for me, I tried to ignore it, but can’t.  So, I decided to make a card in her memory for today.

Paper: Bazzill Stamps: Pink Ribbon Emilly (Sparkle Creations), Cornish Heritage Farms Sentiment  Ink: A Muse, SU! Accessories: Copic markers, Cuttlebug, Ribbon, Prima Flower, Button, Twine, Stickles. 

Rest in peace Mom.  I love you.

Ribbon Carousel Challenge #80 ~ Showers & Flowers

RCC 80

Hello again friends!  It is the final week for this month’s Showers and Flowers challenge over at the Ribbon Carousel!

For my card today I used both flowers and showers!  I stamped Rainy Day Ruby (from Sparkle Creations) onto Copic X-Press It and colored her with Copic markers, I also added a little Glossy Accents to the rain drops and puddle for more texture. I finished off the card layering a couple of Prima flowers and adding a bit of lace.
