Thanks so much for your visits this week! Wish me luck as I am moving my craft room to a new room in the house this weekend/week. I'm very excited to gain more space and organization (and SOOO thankful that my mom, dad, and hubby can help)! Maybe I'll have to give you a video tour when it is finished... ;) See you tomorrow with a Purple Onion Designs card.

By the way, don't you just love that quote: "Within your heart, keep one still, secret spot where dreams may go." So TRUE! Lately I have been dreaming lots and feel so blessed to see some of my BIG dreams coming true!! Can't wait to share more with you when I can. ;) (Oh, man, here I go teasing you again!! LOL) See you tomorrow with our next featured artist- her work definitely qualifies as "MUST SEE."

Today is our last day of inspiration by Joy and I've saved one of my FAVORITE pieces of Joy's stamped art for today. Check it out:
Here is my take. I was especially inspired by Joy's color scheme:
Thanks soooooo much to Joy and all of you for making this week so fun for me! See you on Sunday when I get out my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft goodies and play in my sketchbook! HUGS!

Here is our next great card by Joy:
Here is my take: I began this card by stamping the sillouette stamp by Hero Arts on tan cardstock using VersaMark ink. Next, I heat embossed this image with clear embossing powder. I colored the leaves and branches with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stampers Big Brush Markers, wiping the excess where I colored outside of the lines with a baby wipe. Then I went over the entire oval panel with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The red background was distressed with Brushed Corduroy and Fired Brick Distress Ink. Finally, I stamped the Envelope Pattern stamp from Hero Arts using Fired Brick Distress Ink.

Now for our next card from this week's featured artist, Joy: Joy's card is so pretty! I love the soft blues, teals, and greys together. So soothing and easy on the eye! Joy's overall card design- using Labels 8 with a rectangle panel in the center and bow on top- is definitely one I can see myself turning to often!
Here is my take:
Before I go, I just wanted to say that all of your comments yesterday were truly overwhelming (in a good way!) and touched my heart. Thank you all for taking the time to comment and visit-- you're the GREATEST!

Now, for my take. I hope you will forgive me, but I am going to be a TEASE and just share a peek at my card inspired by Julia's. To see the entire thing and also a fun little announcement, be sure to visit me here on Monday.
BIG hugs and happy stamping this weekend!

Here is my take:I began by stamping Hero Arts Butterfly (CL383) with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Sticky Back Canvas. Next I colored the butterflies using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft PITT Artist pens. I added Distress Ink (Brushed Corduroy and Broken China) onto the canvas using an ink blending tool. The splatter was stamped using a splatter stamp by All Night Media and Distress Ink (Brushed Corduroy). Finally, I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts CL146) using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
Thanks again for visiting!! HUGS!

Here's our next card by Julia:I can't get enough of the glittery goodness on Julia's card! Such a fun idea. This card also has that lovely vintage flair like our card yesterday from Julia. Finally, I love how she has used rustic twine with the soft flower to embellish and finish off her card!
Here is my take:
I created the center panel from white cardstock by stamping the big flower by Hero Arts using Faber-Castell Stampers Big Brush Markers. Next I added a layer of Distress Ink over this stamping using Broken China and Peeled Paint. A quick and easy card! :)
And before I go, the random winner of the digi from Monday is .... Barb! Email me and I will get your image sent to you ASAP. :) Thanks again for popping by! Hope you're having a lovely Tuesday!

Here is our first inspiration card by Julia:
I love how soft and sweet this vintage card is! Julia is a master at pairing patterned papers and stamps. The soft robin egg blue looks beautiful with the light tan. And don't you love her embellishments? Perfectly placed as always!
Here is my take: I began by stamping the large Lynnwood Background stamp (J-987 by Outlines) with Versamark Ink on tan paper. I sprinkled it and embossed with clear embossing powder. Next I applied Broken China Distress over this embossed image. Finally, I stamped Hero Arts Friend Definition (CG125) using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, removing some of the ink with a baby wipe before stamping. The embossed areas will resist this text ink, and I removed it using a baby wipe. The sentiment (Hero Arts CL491) was stamped with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
And since it is the 7th of the month, it's time to share another Tiffany Doodles card for the monthly challenge. This month the challenge is fun photo inspiration, so be sure to check out the details HERE. Here's my card. I channeled my inner Kathy Racoosin (one of my stamping idols) when coloring and "dotting" this Tiffany Doodles butterfly!
