STAMPlorations Inspirations #135

It's STAMPlorations Inspiration Day here on my blog.  This week, we are featuring Shery Russ, the owner of STAMPlorations, and also the creator of Shery Russ Designs.  All her sets are 10% off this week, and you can save an additional 20% off by using my code, STAMPGIRLVICKID.

I started by painting a background, and used the All Over Heart stencil for a little ghosting effect.  I used the Faith Expressions stamp set, along with the ATC Tag Builder die cut, to make a Bible bookmark.


That's it for me today.  Pop on over to the STAMPlorations Blog to see more fun creations by the Team.  Don't forget to leave a comment for the monthly prize~

Simply Stamps Gets Involved

Memorial Day is a day to grill great food in the beautiful summer weather surrounded by friends and family. But before we enjoy our holiday-inspired cocktails and burgers cooked to perfection, it’s important we take time to remember what this Monday off is all about: honoring the troops who fought selflessly for our freedom. That’s why this Memorial Day we’ll be collecting donations and letters to send overseas to our soldiers to remind them how thankful we are.
We’ve asked all the employees of our roughly 70 person strong small business to spend a few dollars on something or simply write a letter to put a smile on the soldiers’ faces. Whether it’s something as small as a bag of beef jerky or a meaningful handwritten thank you card, we hope to make them feel a little closer to home this Memorial Day. Donations and letters will be collected until Thursday, May 25th.
We invite our local customers and followers to participate by dropping any donations off at our Jacksonville, FL. location at 2021 St. Augustine Rd. E. To those spread far and wide throughout the country, you can also contribute. Care packages can be sent to Support Our Troops at the below address and they will ensure they make it to our troops.
Support Our Troops
13791 N. Nebraska Ave.
Tampa, FL 33613
Support Our Troops asks all senders to include your name, address and phone number on the outside of each box in case you need to be contacted. It’s also encouraged to include a photo of yourself, family, company, etc. so the soldiers can see who the packages are coming from! If you have any further questions, visit their website here.
To encourage your participation, we’ll be giving away some Memorial Day-inspired summer swag to one randomly chosen participant! Simply share your donations and letters with us by posting a picture on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and tagging Simply Stamps. All pictured donations will be considered an entry because we know the smallest things can have just as big of an impact!
We thank you in advance for your contributions and your desire to make a difference! Our gratitude goes out to all of our soldiers, fallen, retired and current. Cheers to an unforgettable Memorial Day weekend in their honor.

Just Us Girls #394 - Color Week


I LOVE these colors!  The brighter the better in my mind... :)

I thought graphic, so I used the Maya Road Triangles, and the large Thank You from Concord & Nine.  I really like larger sentiment like this one.

I liked the colors so much, I even made a 2nd card using the back-in-business Clearly Besotted, Everything Changes, along with English Rose stamp sets.


Already then - your turn.  How do you see using the colors?  Come on over to the JUGS Blog and play along.  Be sure and check out my teamies cards too~

STAMPlorations Inspirations #134

It's time for the STAMPlorations Inspirations again.  This week, we are focusing on Deepti's, Dee's Artsy Impressions.  All her sets are on sale 10% off, and you can save an additional 20% off by using my code, STAMPGIRLVICKID.

For my card today, I used Blooming Buds.  I have been really loving the gold embossing with colored flowers I have been seeing in blogland.  That said, I stamped my background, embossed with gold, and sponged blue ink all over the panel.  For some contrast, I also used a blue colored pencil within the flower to darken up the image a little.  For the popped up flower, I used my Copics.  A lot going on for such a CAS card right? :)

For more eye candy, pop on over to the STAMPloration's Blog to see what my fellow team members have made.  Don't forget to leave a comment for the monthly prize~

Inspired By Stamping Day

I have a small tutorial over on the Inspired By Stamping Blog, on how to make the background panel you see on this card.

Looks interesting?  Well pop on over and check it out~
--------------
Well, I just looked at my JUGS challenge, and guess what?  
Ha!  It is the above card!  So, I am giving you a sneak peek of the challenge, while saving myself having to make another card -- perfect timing I'm thinking.

Pop on over to Just Us Girls Challenge [Sat midnight EST] and play along!  I am looking forward to seeing the different uses of oxide inks.
