You are a life saver

Sunday June 17, 2018
 
Well I was in a crafty mood to try to paint a water scene. I like the boat and life saver but I wanted to make a scene that was unusual. So I took out my little tin of Ranger and Stampin up re-inkers and painted in the water and sky.. on a separate piece of paper I stamped the boat and life saver and painted with the re-inkers. I fussy cut them out. I laid them down on the paper and just didn't work.. What was I to do with the life saver.. So I drew in the anchor and painted it. I then hung the life saver on the anchor.. now it looked better. I took a white gel pen and gave white cap effects. I stamped the sentiment and added this to the card. I think it's a fun scene. I love the large anchor.

Congrats - Graduation #10

Saturday June 16, 2018
 
OK this is the last card of my Graduation theme cards.. I am using the last Stampin up Congrats that was stamped aprox. a year ago.. I had to use it cause I didn't want to lose it or throw it away.. LOL. that's why I have so many scraps. I can't throw away anything. Ok I had to use this fun designer paper of books.. I kept singing "no more paper no more books no more teachers dirty looks"... LOL .. Is this perfect for a graduation card or what..  I hope you've enjoyed seeing my same design but different paper and choice of 3 different sentiment cards.. It's been so much fun to create.

Hello all and it is the middle of June already..
Dang the older I get the faster the days go.. Well on to today..
Today at Catch the bug we have a new challenge. BINGO
 
 
BINGO card to follow

 
Oh my I am a dog person and I am loving this cuttie.. He's Chihuahua 02... which means he comes in a set of three. now who doesn't love that.. you can find the image in the Bugaboo store I love the cute look on this face and since he was sitting in a coffee cup I thought this Tech. Tues. sentiment went perfect for this card. For the card I chose the middle row.. Distress / Die-punch / Bugaboo image. I have this old news print so I used some watered down Ranger ink and distressed this piece. I crumpled it and then ironed it out. I took the image and tore off the bottom edge and using Quick Quote chalk ink went around the edges. I colored the image with copics. For the flowers I looked through my scraps and using MFT small dies and EK smaller punch I cut the circles and using a brad to complete the flower I then added the flowers to the card. I went through my box of leaves and chose a couple to add to the flower scene. I think the dies for the leaves is Stampin Up.

Note: CWS Challenges do not have many "Guidelines", but please read and follow the few we do have to be eligible to win.
 
This was a fun card to make. I had some images I colored last year using my Mission paints. So I went through my stash and found these Tim Holtz dog and cat. I just had to die cut them out. I then went through my Quick Quote scraps and using My favorite things circle die I added them to the card front. I cut off the excess and then added a strip of tan so they would have grounding. I then stamped the Dylusions sentiment and cut the sentiment out and using foam mounted and added this to the card.  I don't have a cat but from what I know about them this looks like what the cat would say to the dog.. LOL

Friday June 15, 2018
 
Welcome to a Friday over at Bugaboo.. Where it's Free Friday. Check out the fun creations over at Catch the bug.
 
 
This is "Gus birthday rocking chair"  I love Gus and this is a fun image for that masculine birthday card you need for that special person. The sentiment also comes with the image.  I started by finding the background paper which is from Basic Gray.. I then colored the image with copics and used some of the colors from the dp.. I used My favorite things stitch die. I added the image then the sentiment distressing the edge with Quick Quote chalk ink. I added some Doodlebug dots and a little Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to the image.  Cute huh? or maybe no..depends on your style..

This is my card using the image called Two little mice.  I think they are so cute. I remember my daughter had a couple mice in her younger years. I colored the image with copics. I added my cloud template. I then used My favorite things circle die. I embossed the turquoise background and then used My favorite things sentiment and heat embossed it. I added some Close to my heart bling dots.  Yup this card brings a smile.

You're so cool happy birthday - Always Happy Birthday #6

Friday June 15, 2018
 
Mid month reminder for our challenge at
Always Happy Birthday #6 and the theme is still
BIRTHDAY ANYTHING GOES / OPT: SUMMER
 
'
Well when it's summer  I think of ice cream... heck I think of ice cream any season.. lol.  Well I decided to create my card using these Simon Says stamps.. I used my cloud template to create the sky. I then stamped two bars on the background and one on card stock I colored and fussy cut out.. I colored them with copics.. I added the heat embossed sentiment on the chocolate bar. I didn't like the bars jus floating in the sky so using Stampin up in I stamped some rows of circles. I had a Club scrap stamp sitting on my desk so using SU ink added them to the corners and went over the leaves with Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.
