Red Rubber Designs October New Release's

Hello friends.  I hope you had a fabulous week.  I'm so glad the weekend is here.  I'm still having back pain and if you could add me to your prayers I would really appreciate it.   I'm on steroids and have a few side effects, one of which is being very emotional and on the verge of tears.  This might be a great time to mention that my husband is so wonderful to put up with me!  I'm not sure how he puts up with me sometimes.  I am sooooo blessed.

I was just checking out the new releases for October over at Red Rubber Designs and remembered that I had one of the sets from my TAC days.  This is is an old photo.  Wish I could re-shoot it because you can't really see the black fun flock I used on the bee's body, or the transparency I used for the wings to make them 3-D.   

Red Rubber Designs is giving a away this set to one lucky commentor!  It's called Lovely Peony.  All you have to do is leave comments on the Red Rubber Designs blog HERE and 5 DT member blogs.      Contest ends on Sunday, Oct. 7 at midnight CDT.   And if you don't win, then you can order it for 40% with an order because it's the "spotlight stamp set" this month.  

There are a total of 11 new release sets this month and you can check them all out HERE.  I am always attracted to fall stamps for some reason.  I love fall images and decorations so as soon as I seen "Ever So Thankful" .... I was in love!  Which one is your favorite?

I'm hoping to get something crafty done this weekend in between loads of laundry!
Have a fabulous weekend!
hugs, Melisa

Bee Well Soon!

Good Morning Paper Crafters.  Today I am sharing a card using "Honey Sweet" art stamp set by Layers of Color.  Isn't this set just perfect for a get well card!  Colored using Copics.  I trimed the main image and layered it over to cut outs created using my Spellbinders Labels Five Nestibilities and my Grand Calibur.  The image is compatible with Labels 20.  I added shadow inside the fencing with yellow chalk and N00.  This one is clean and simple and easy to create.

I hope you have a bee-utiful day!

The future is bright ...

Hello Paper Crafters!  Is anyone going to be stamping today??  If you are, what will you be working on??  I created this one using one of Layers of Color's new releases "Encouragement" art stamp set.  Nina Brackett has a designed this set with some beautiful sentiments and verses in it, 8 total.  I was going for a shabby / vintage feel with this one.  The patterned paper and "Victorian Frame" reminded me of something you might have seen on a wall many years ago.  I added the little flower from my "Merci Bouquet" set. I used  the last piece of one of my most favorite lace on this one.  I had found it in an antique store.  It probably wasn't antique, who knows, but it was definitely unique.  Time to hit the anitque stores for some more rare finds.
Patterned Paper : The Girls Paperie "Kitch"
The next 2 were designed for Take Ten.  The cards are only supposed to take 10 minutes to create, so I had to keep them fairly clean and simple.  I have mailed them in and hope to see them in a future publication!

Stamps : Layers of Color “Pansy Corner” cling stamp set, “Flutterescent” and “Encouragement” art stamp sets
Copic Markers
Spellbinders Labels Eight and Grand Calibur
Stamp images on white cardstock. Trim sentiment using Spellbinders Labels Eight die with Grand Calibur. Ink edges. Color butterfly and pansy’s with markers and trim. Adhere all pieces to front of card. Ink edges.

Stamps : Layers of Color “RoseBlossom Frame” cling art stamp (compatible with Spellbinders Labels 16)  I did not use the Labels 16 die on this project.
and “Honey Sweet” art stamp set
Ink : Momento
Copic Markers
Ribbon unknown

Stamp rose frame on front of A2 card and color. Stamp sentiment. Stamp bee’s on separate white cardstock, color, and trim. Adhere to front of card. Tie bow and adhere.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
I am really excited to be meeting up with some new friends for a card swap tomorrow morning.
big hugs,

Sentimental Sundays - flowers and a sentiment (little flower at the bottom of the frame and on the dp)

I'm having a bee-utiful saturday!

Hello Paper Crafters.  I hope you are all having a fabulous saturday and doing something fun.  I have lots of things I "need" to do.  But I worked some extra hours this week, so I am definitely making time to play as well.  No my husband would totally have said that differently, teehee.  He would have said that I play a lot and he would like for me to make some time to work.  Next week will be very busy as well with work and then my daughter is coming for another visit on thursday!!  Yah!!  She will be here for 11 days and I"m really looking forward to it.  We are going to take a little trip to San Antonio while she's here, so that should be lots of fun.  We haven't really taken the time to explore outside of Houston since we moved here. 

So today I'm sharing an ensemble inspired by this week's Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday.  And I couldn't resist using my "Honey Sweet" art stamp set by Layers of Color.  This is such a fun set with the cutest bee sentiments.  You can check it out HERE.

I have no idea where Cath find's all her inspirational photo's she shares, but I hope she keeps them coming!  I would not look so great in that coat, but I LOVE it.  I love the folds and the shape.  I think it would look awesome in red as well.

... and here is the matching gift bag.  I used the Square Bag 01 large, pre-cut / pre-scored from Creative Cuts and More.  I think if I had added a little black ribbon / bow at the top to tie the handles together it would look better. 

I think the Prima Notecard from Flora Fairy just made the card below.  Of course the Warbler image from Layers of Color is the shining star though. 

I LOVE birds.  I'm not sure how many times the birds on my bird feeder outside my studio window have made me smile this week.  They are just one of God's most amazing little creatures.  The ones who have been stopping by are so small.  There are a couple of different kinds.  I've been trying to catch a photo, but the fly off as I approach the window.  I need to get my zoom lense out.  I'm thinking aboutr picking up another feeder and putting sun flowers seeds in that one.  I would love to see a red bird sitting outside my window.  Luckily the cats think they have to be in the house at the window to enjoy them.  They haven't figured out that if the jumped the fence and went around to the front of the house, it might be easier to catch one. 
I hope you get a chance to enjoy some of God's wonderful creations this weekend!

My "Bee Mine" ensemble was chosen as a Trigger Target over at Moxie Fab!!!

Layers of Color NEW RELEASE sneak peeks!

Good Morning Paper Crafters. I hope you all had a great 4th. We finally got our livingroom furnature ordered. I'm so relieved to have that taken care of. Now we can move on to curtains, a TV stand, and a curio. And if it takes as long to take care of these items as it did picking out the couch, chair, and recliner, then we should be done by Christmas, HA!

I have great news to share with you this morning. Layers of Color will be releasing 5 new art stamp sets and more cling art stamps as well!! The new release will be available next monday and we are celebrating with a tea party. We would "bee" delighted if you joined us for a "tea-rrific" release party!
