Loves Rubberstamps-Tall & Skinny Challenge

Happy Tuesday Everyone.  It is time for Loves Rubberstamps weekly challenge and this week the theme is:
Tall & Skinny
 (how I wish that was how you can describe me lol).

The challenge is to create a 4x9 card that will fit into a standard business size envelope.  Today I used the MFT-Vertical Greeting Stamps Set II MFT with the Crate Paper-Farmhouse Set.

Sorry for the super short post but they are finally doing the construction on my house so house fill of men, barking dogs and crazy kids (but that is everyday really).

Enjoy your day.

I have been trying to make sure to use those stamps I have been neglecting and this is one of the adorable ones I have not used recently.
This cutey is the from Crafter's Companion Toread Collection. This adorable stamp is called Comge .
I decided to go with one of my favorite color palettes (I love Green/Purple together).  I used a bunch of scraps from different papers I have had lying around because I really want to make sure I use them up.
Hope everyone get a chance to play along! Do not forget about the DT call we are having at LRS stamps too.

I am in a monthly swap group and this tag was actually one of the tags I received.  I then added the bottle cap charm I created myself, the fabric butterfly and colored the stamp to match. 
The stamp is Mimosa Summer Wind which was colored with my Copics.

Yumi & Fumi Handmade 1st Birthday Hop

I am super honored and excited to have been asked to be part of Yumi & Fumi Handmade 1st Birthday Blog Hop.  This fantastic stamp company has so many great images and we decided to showcase some of them as I celebrate with them on their first Birthday. 

Now great ready to see a boatload of super talented creations coming up. You should have arrived here from Henriette blog but if you have gotten lost along the way just start back at the beginnning.
Our Celebration Inspiration photo was as following:

So here is what I came up with:

What do you think?? I used Winter Yumi Stamp to create this celebration card.  You can guess that the colors were my inspirations as well as the multiple patterns and the flowers.  This paper are from various paper stacks I have in my stash but I think they are all by DCVW. I had this sticker flowers & flourishes in my stash forever so though this was a perfect time to use them (got to make my card sparkle somehow).  I also used a border punch and used Feeling Sketchy sketch. 
I used my Copics to color the image:
Hair: E18,9,YR9,7,4
Skin: E53,51,50,R32
Orange: YR68,64,14
Pink: RV 66, 6, 4, 2
So keep that coffee flowing and hop along to Marisol blog.

SOG Monthly Sketch Challenge

I had some time to enter into one of the mini Challenges over at Some Odd Girl Ning Community. I am really trying to get myself work and entering for fun sometimes.
I used the image, Kite-Flying Mae that is a digi over at SOG. I have a bit of a collection of their stamps and some digis as well.
I had this paper in my stash..think it is MME but not even sure and figured it looked very summery. I also have so much twine/Ribbon that I realllllyyyy need to get rid of it.
 I also based it on the sketch from SOG this month as well.  I rotated it so it is vertical.

Loves Rubberstamps Morning Inspiration

Sorry for the delay folks. Today was the start of summer camp and had to drive everyone to their designated areas.  I am back for my Monday morning Inspiration for Loves Rubberstamps.
I wanted to use one of my favorite stamp lines, Uptown Girls from Stamping Bella.  This one is called  Winnie Peeking Out of the Window.

I love purple and green together so I decided to use from paper from a DCWV Garden Harvest stack I had sitting on desk. The sentiment comes with the stamp set but I used some MIC chipboard I had in my stash.

I colored the image with my Copics and only paper pieced the curtains.

Loves Rubberstamps Monday Inspiration

Happy Monday everyone. We are in full summer mood...can you believe the kids are STILL sleeping???  I am letting them milk it for now since next week starts camp and they have be up bright and early for that.
Today for my Loves Rubberstamps Inspirational Post I am featuring one of my favorite images from Stamping Bella's by Mo Manning called Lacie with Ice Cream.

I found these papers in my stash and I am not even sure who made them but I thought they would look great to use. I think it is from a DCWV assortment pack I have been hoarding for at least a year.

I created the polaroid effect by using one of the Insta Love die set from Your Next Stamp that I received when I had a fabulous time as a GDT over there. The tickets sentiment was actually part of the paper so I just cut it out and added some pop-up to it.

I colored the image with my Copics and tried to add some elements of the sky.

I will be entering this one into the following challenges:

The Corrosive Challenge: Summer Time
Color Me Creative: Colors of Summer
Word Play Saturday: Summertime
DP2: Fun In the Sun
Stamping Bella: Summer Sizzle
Simon Says: Anything Goes
