Honey Thinks Pink for Awareness

Hi guys! 
I have a little something special today for my LDRS Inspiration post. 
Considering it's October breast Cancer awareness and it's the annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. I wanted to show my support through my coloring/card making creations. So today I used one of my favorite Saturated Canary Rubber Stamps (pretty much all of them are my favorite right lol)   You could find her over the LDRS store.

I colored her mainly with my copics and because I wanted a warm undertone on her hair I picked up a BG1 Spectrum Noir marker to touch that up. I don't have many T's of N's in copics and I could of certainly have used W's but the SN BG pen has this undertone that I can't seem to match with the copics. Maybe If I had more of the N's I would been able to compare but for now I used a BG1 LOL! BLAH That was a bunch of gibberish lol!sorry!


Also I should mention that I used MR digital paper Pink Rustic Cottage. 
Michele has so many pretty designs you need to check her out.

I had a go on some of the Warm Fuzzies Use Your Words and spelled out H O P E right down next to honey.

here is a solo of Honey before the glitz 



I just adore these clear pink crystal picks i picked up at a craft Expo.


That's it for me today. I hope I gave you some inspiration in any way. Thanks for swinging by and till next time 
((hugs))

Thank you Friend Saturated Canary Crisscross Applesauce

Hello peeps I'm back and it's my turn to share a little lovin for the
LDRS Inspiration blog

Today I'm featuring one of the spankin NEW lovely Saturated Canary rubber stamp and she goes by
 Crisscross Applesauce. I layered a few sheets of shabby design paper which by the way the picture doesn't do it justice. (I hate when that happens)

Miss Applesauce seemed to me like she wanted a fun color hair so a little touch of blues and purples to jazz her up. 
Ok now I need to apologize because I wrote down the recipe and well I was so excited honestly that I finally saved it well ummmmm I LOST IT!!! GRRRR! It was on this tiny paper I think I accidentally threw it out whilst doing the card ugh!!!! sorry sorry sorry :( 

I also attached one of the newest release sentiments from the Vintage Affections For all You Do.
I tell you the whole set is utterly elegant. I really enjoy the vintage touch on this line!

I hope you enjoy my SC share today. I'm working A LOT these days. As you might guess CHA is around the corner so working hard in getting the LDRS booth full of new creations BUT do stay toon because I'll be back in a few days for a Candibean NEW RELEASE HOP (In my Oprah voice)
Mark your calendars Sep 20TH!!!!!! 
Enjoy the weekend and I'm off with a weekend full of baseball games (yippie.....sigh.....)
Thanks for the visits!

Hello Friends I'm back with Blackberry Penny Candibean

HI GUYS OH GOODNESS IT'S BEEN A WHILE!!! I think it's safe to say I'm back taking baby steps. I've been out took a little leave (long story lol) I will try my best to get back into the swing of things. I have so much to share as cardmaking goes. I might have to dedicate a single post on cards that never got shared lol! but TODAY let me concentrate on my LDRS Inspiration post.

Here is a card I did  using Blackberry Penny 


I used a combination of my copics and a tad of pencils to color her up. Whilst coloring her up I would take brakes and grab another image and color that one too. At one point I had 3 images in the coloring process so I kinda mixed up the copics and I'm not certain on the combos sorry :( I promise I'll do better. Her pants or is it stockings? they are a light pinkish with white but it's picking up so white :( 

Oh do you see that blue flower on top of the picture. I dabbed it with this new thing I just discovered it's really neat. It actually looks like potpourri with glitter. I'm a bit obsessed with it right now I say.

I thought adding a friendship sentiment went well with the image and so it became a friendship card.
 I used one of the sentiments from the 

Ok that's it from me today and I'll be back very soon but please don't forget to look out for the New Saturated Canary Rubber stamp release, Sep 1st whohoo!!!
Have a great weekend

LDRS Summer Luvin with my Bestfriend


Welcome all to the LDRS New CandiBean Summer Luvin Collection Hop!!!! 
I'm glad you could join us and if you popped in to see what I've been up to well let's just say I've been coloring A LOT LOL! Few things behind the scene and so forth.

Anywhoo I'm so excited to share my creation and be part of this hop with my awesome DT sistas.
 If you are coming from my lovely and talented friend Ann Marie's blog you are right on track. Also guess what we have a special guest none other than Diane Carubia the Illustrator of these adorable images. Please make sure to stop by her blog and leave some love :)

Ok let me walk you through my project and what I've done.
Firstly this frame was put together using these two cuties simply two besties enjoying summer flowers.
Their names are Jessies Summer Garden and Peekaboo.
Both colored with my Tim Distress Ink pads and Tim's markers too.

Listening to Lana Del Rey (she's my obsession lately) coloring these two has been so therapeutic and I finished it so fast I wanted to color more. 



Now you see that sentiment well ya just got a sneak peek on a sentiment collection part of  an upcoming release. Oh is it so cute!

sneak peek #2 on a different sentiment :) I wanted to hang a little on this small  of flowers. It seems big but it's really a tiny brown pot carrying some Begonias.


and did you hear for all those stampers out there. Our chants and frustrations have been heard! 

DO YOU SEE WHAT LDRS is doing OMG! I love it.
 Look look look.... 
I LOVE the idea of the stamped image that makes it so much easier to see for those that prefer to visual it in black and white or those who store their stamps in binders. Isn't it awesome!
