International Women's Day

International Woman's Day means many things to many people and for me, it means that we should celebrate the accomplishments of women around the world and all throughout history. It also stands for individuality, being able to be you without fear of rejection and accepted as an equal gender. March 8th is the day that every woman should come together and celebrate each other. To all my crafting friends I want to say "Thank you for being you" I would want nothing more and nothing less. So in honor of women everywhere I share this card with you.

To create the card I used a Fancy Pants paper pad that I've had for a really long time and an image that is just as old and I have no memory of how I acquired it.

This card was easy enough to assemble, I used Copics to color the image, added a few brads and used more paper from the same pad to complete the inside. I did add a space for a personal message after the photo was taken.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simply Papercraft - #55 Anything Goes
Morgan's Artworld - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers - #143Anything Goes
Polkadoodles - Wk #10 Anything Goes

That's all I have for tonight. Thanks for stopping by and as always "Seek to find beauty in all things"

Stampscapes Scenes

Hello All,

I have been busy these past few weeks taking lessons to improve my coloring ability and creating panoramic scenes using one stamp or more.  This has been so much fun and today I would like to share a few of my creations.  I hope this will inspire you to check out the YouTube videos by Kevin owner of Stampscapes (linked at the end of this post) and maybe if you haven't played with this type of coloring you will.  This is a short post but it has quite a few photos (more than 4) so relax for a minute and browse through them. 

The cards above were all created using Stampscapes stamps and colored with various ink types on various types of paper.  So now a few more to share.

These are scenes created using the same brand stamps that will eventually become the center/focal point of a card.  

Oh well, that is all I have for this post.  The stamps I used are linked below.

All You Need is Love

Love, Love, All you need is love...remember that song from long ago? Well, the day for all hearts to come alive is here and the florist is pleased with the number of flowers and chocolate that has been sold.  As for me, I think if I were given a box of markers or crayons and a bouquet of lace I would be just as happy and feel just as loved (smiles).

Today I am going to share two cards with you that I hope you will like.  One is without any coloring and the other is with an image and coloring.  They both represent the day of caring and loving one another.  So here we go.

This card was created using Spellbinders Nested Hearts Die, Martha Stewart Border Die, Lace, Ribbon and DP from Cosmos. I inked my edges using Distress Inks, printed out a greeting and added a lock from my stash to complete the card.  I couldn't find a key flat enough for the inside so I just stamped a greeting.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Moo-Mania - #159 Love (2/20)
Creative Moments - #136 Anything Goes (2/19)
Crafty Gals Corner - #159 Add A Heart (2/26)
Craftaholics R Us - #7 RED (2/20)
Crafty Addicts - #45 Anything Goes/Loved Up

When I created this card I was trying to use paper I had in my stash from last year and I think it is by Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby.  I think my image is one from Mo Manning but I can't recall the name of it or anything.  I colored her with my Copics, added a few Recollection flowers, stamped and cut out a greeting using Die'namics Fishtail dies to complete the card. On the inside, the heart border punch is one of Martha Stewarts.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes/Use Real Stamp (2/27)
Crafty Creations - #360 Anything Goes (2/27)
Crafting By Design - Be My Valentine (2/20)
Pause Dream Enjoy - #7 Anything Goes (2/20)
Try it On Tuesday - Love Is In The Air (2/19)

That's all I have for today. I really must go see about my laundry, after all the washer stopped almost an hour ago and the dryer who knows.  Seems like I forget everything whenever I go in my craft room (you know what I mean).

But as always thanks for stopping by and find beauty in all things.
