My allergies have just been horrible this year, but I love all the blooming flowers and trees so much it's hard to keep myself inside!  Today we have some non-pollen producing Inspired Stamps to share with you!  Kary starts us off with the close up of her BEAUTIFULLY BLOOMING card above! Here's her full card and the rest of the blooming projects our talented Design Team have created!
 Chere made these great tag bags (all the details are on her blog)

 Jamie made this cute set:

How to put 'clothes' on your His Little One Characters...

Hello friends!
Many times the His Little Ones Characters are just FUN to color with your markers (Like Kary from the DT did in this one above this past winter), but what if you need a card QUICK and don't have TIME to color?

Today's post will help you take your character, and 'dress them quickly'!  You will stamp the WHOLE girl onto patterned paper and cut out the outfit.  Then stamp the WHOLE girl on the white paper you want her head to be colored on and cut her head out (I cut out her hands too!):

 Next you just put them together:
You could stamp her in black ink if you wanted her clothing to pop more.  I was literally rushing to get this card out to a friend before our mail lady came and didn't have time to get a photo of the entire card :(  But it took MUCH less time to make this HLO:praying girl than coloring her whole outfit would have!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I'll be back soon with more artwork for you!

3 DAYS ONLY!! CONTEST: What would YOU like to see made into a stamp?

Hello Friends!
We are getting our designs ready for the JUNE SUMMER release (our May release is only a couple weeks away!) and want to make a stamp set INSPIRED by YOU!!  If you are chosen as our INSPIRED STAMP SET winner, you will not only receive the set FREE shipped to your door...but we are sending the winner 2 EXTRA sets to give away to the winner's friends, showing them the stamp set that was created based on what the winner submitted!


You only have until this SUNDAY MIDNIGHT EASTERN TIME to leave your comment HERE or ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE (emails NOT accepted as entries so keep your ideas here or on the Facebook page!).

Here's what we are looking for;
1.  An idea for a THEME of a stamp set that WE DON'T CURRENTLY CARRY IN OUR ONLINE STORE (we've had Prayer, Friends, BEARs all Things, Birthday, Baptism, Pets, Comfort, etc)
2.  Include at least ONE Scripture (King James Version or New American Standard Versions only) that we do NOT carry that goes along with your theme
3.  at least ONE other element (a character, animal, flower, shape, or sentiment) you think would be good to have to compliment the Scripture.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE go by the online store and see what we DO have so you don't resubmit a Scripture or set we already carry.

share this opportunity with your blogging/Facebook friends.  Have them tell us that YOU sent them here when they submit their idea, and if THEY win....we'll send YOU a FREE set of their inspired idea, too!

Looking forward to seeing what INSPIRED set YOU come up with! We will announce the winner and the winning idea on Monday's sure to come back and see if YOU win!!
Have fun creating!

Comfort Card with CRAYON-COLORED flower!

Hello friends!
I hope you had a BEAUTIFUL RESURRECTION SUNDAY!  Our Easter was filled with lots of food, family, and sunshine and we are very grateful for the blessings!

Today I have a quick post with one of the cards from a class I am teaching.  The flower is from our FLOWERS set and is colored with crayons to get that multi-layered look!  If you are like me and spend a lot of time coloring with Copics, it's kinda fun to grab the crayon box and play once in a while!

Have a beautiful day and I'll be back with more artwork for you soon!
