Surprise Blog Hop for Joanna

Happy Friday!



Today the Inspired by Stamping Design Team is surprising Joanna with a Blog Hop to show our appreciation for her.

Here is the fun card I created:



I used watercolor paper and Distress Inks to create the 'tie-dyed' tee shirt. The sentiment is from the Watercolor Sentiments stamp set.

Here is the inside:



The sentiment, from the Friends Forever stamp set, was stamped on a piece of the same watercolored paper as the tee shirt.

Please visit the Inspired by Stamping Blog to see the fabulous cards the rest of the Design Team created.

Thanks for stopping by!

IBSIC 96

Happy Sunday!



Welcome to my Inspired by Stamping Sunday Designer Feature.

My card today is for IBSIC 96On the 15th of each month, a new IBSIC is posted. You may follow the Color, Sketch, and/or Theme. One randomly chosen participant will receive a $25 GC to the Inspired by Stamping Store!

Here are the inspirations for IBSIC 96:






My card is based on the Sketch:



Using two of the Fancy Label Dies 2, I created the fancy edge on the top of the layered tag. I stamped the lighthouse image, from the Seaside stamp set, and lightly sponged around it to coordinate with the background patterned paper. The fun sentiment is from the Seaside Sentiments stamp set.

Here is the inside:



I used the Seaside and Seaside Sentiments stamp sets to finish the inside.
Please visit the Inspired by Stamping Blog to see the full list of designers featuring IBSIC 96 cards today.

Creations by AR - Farewell 50% Sale



Due to continuing health problems, Adela Rossol has made the difficult decision to close her Creations by AR on-line template shop.

I purchased my first template from Adela when she was just starting and I believe there were three or four templates available at that time. I have been on Adela's Challenge Team, been her Customer Blog Hop Coordinator, and for the past one and a half years been an 'AR girl' on her Design Team. Not only will I miss Adela's wonderful templates and instructions, I will miss 'working' with her.

Here is Adela's message:


To My Dear Fellow Crafters,

It's always difficult to say good-bye, but it is time. Many of you already know that I have been dealing with health issues which prevented me from designing and crafting. I miss my craft time so much! I discovered my passion for crafting when I was only seven years old and it immediately became my favorite hobby! Needless to say, my love for crafting will now take a back seat in my everyday life, but it's okay because I now have more time to spend with family. I'm very tankful for the blessings that God has given me and continue to give to me and my family. 


Thank you friends, for allowing me to share my love for paper crafting with you. It's always so exciting when I find AR projects online that someone has shared. Thank you for your lovely words and for being such a big part of my life!

I will be closing shop on July 31st. Please take advantage of the 50% off all files in my shop.  If you have AR Points accumulated, use them before the 31st.  If you have any questions not covered in the FAQ section of my website, please email me directly at adela@creationsbyar.com

Thank You and Farewell My Friends!
Adela
