This is another card that I have made for someone very special. She is a wonderful, wonderful friend, and I know that if we lived in the same city/country, we would spend a LOT of time together! I don't want to say too much as I know she stops by my blog, and I want it to be a surprise when she eventually receives this! :)

So for this card I inked up the *new* Kenny K Happy Hour rubber stamp and coloured her in Copics (yes, colouring around the white spots on her dress was a challenge, lol). The sentiment is from the *new* Whimsy Stamps Simple Everyday Greetings stamp set (I can't tell you how much I love this set and I just know that it will become my most used everyday stamp set!).

SCRSC96B - Love Song Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Today I have my Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge 96 card to share. You have until Sunday 27 January 2013 @ 9 PM PST to play along with our challenge which is a Love Song Challenge:


As soon as I saw this challenge, I knew immediately which love song I would pick! I have  tonnes of favourite love songs (I could spend all day listing them!), but this one is special. It holds the most meaning and the biggest place in my heart. It's the very first song that my hubby sang to me ... down the telephone line ... thousands of miles apart ... him in NZ and me in the UK ... and it has been "our" song ever since ...

"I'll Be" by Edwin McCain:


I was going to use Cheerleading Emily for my card because of the lyric: "I'll be the greatest fan of your life". But as I wanted the card to be more romantic and 'whole-song' inspired, I chose Mr. & Mrs. instead. I followed Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 176 for my layout:


Supplies
SCRS Mr. & Mrs. rubber stamp
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Copics
Basic Grey 'Plumeria' 6x6 paper pad
Bazzill Kraft cardstock
Natural Kraft Button Twine, WOC flower
Versamagic Eggplant chalk ink
Spellbinders Circles & Scalloped Circles dies

I used my 'new' Basic Grey Plumeria pad for this card. And talking about Basic Grey, have you seen their newest lines? I can't wait to get my hands on Lucille and Mint Julep. Mint Julep was revealed at Winter CHA 2013 so unfortunately it won't be shipping until April ... arghhh, such a long time to wait, lol!

Do visit the rest of Challenge Team B to see what gorgeousness they have created for your inspiration this week and then hop along to the SCRS blog to join in the challenge!


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!

Hugs,


I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

- Bunny Zoe's: Anything Goes
- Crafty Bloggers #7: Flowers
- CWLC 25: Anything Goes
- Stamp and Create: Love
- Basic Grey: New Beginnings/Something New

Sparkle Creations.January Release Day - Sushi Rin

Hi everyone and welcome to Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps JANUARY RELEASE DAY!

All new stamps are now available to buy from the SCRS store! We are also previewing Sushi Rin today who comes with three fab sentiments.

I followed Sketch #30 from Seems a Little Sketchy, although I did use it in its mirror-image and also substituted the bottom 3 gems for a twine bow:



Unfortunately I'm a little disappointed with this card. I'm really happy with my coloring, but on reflection, I think I should have switched out the red paper for something else.  The vast expanse of red isn't quite working. The paper I used needed more of a pattern (it does have writing on it, but it's hard to tell in the photo). Oh well! You win some, you lose some, lol!  I will use this stamp for one our future challenges and see if I can do a better job, as I love the stamp!!!

Be sure to visit the rest of our fabulous SCRS designers for more peeks of Sushi Rin. Sparkle will be giving away a Sushi Rin rubber stamp to one lucky person! For a chance to WIN, you need to visit and comment on all of the designers' Sushi Rin blog posts (listed below) and leave a comment on the SCRS blog post. You have until midnight EST tonight to comment.


Thanks so much for poppintg by today! I hope you enjoy our new release!
