Saturday April 25, 2015
 
 
 
follow the photo below and make a card.. I chose to use the colors.. you may want to choose an image.. It's which ever way you want. 
 

I thought I would go with the colors for this challenge. I used the image Scene it rain boot bugs
  I really tried to pick up all the colors in this card. I love the blues/violets/golds and orange. It is such a cute image. I thought the sentiment went well with the image as the little critters are peeking.

Inspiration Destination #30 - ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES / Life is a journey

Wednesday April 22, 2015
 
 

 

I chose to use Gigi for my card. I made the background first. Water color paper and an overall stamp from SU -cross hatch and clear embossed the image. Then I started adding H2O paints till I got the effect I wanted. Let it dry while I colored up the image. I know she is in a sailor outfit but I wanted to pull the colors from the background and make it a nice colorful card. I did not have paper the color I wanted for the sentiment so used copics and colored the white paper then stamped the sentiment from Simon Says.  I rounded the corner of the image and some viva pearls to the journey sentiment.
I hope you head over to Inspiration Destination and play along.

Memory of the adventure

Tuesday April 21, 2015
 
I thought I would take some of my scraps and start making cards on days I don't have a card to post.. I know that is seldom that I have a free day.. I seem to always have cards to post and love it.. But there are so many scraps and the pile is getting so high that I have and figured this would be a good time to use up those scraps and or add some new designer papers  I bought /or given..
This is the first card I made using all scraps. I have a big stack of left over Quick quote scraps. I test kits from Quick quote before they go out public.. check them out, they are in stores all over and also have a great site. Fun papers and inks. Any ways this is the card I made using all DP from QQ. I thought with the bikes that it could be a card for someone going on an adventure - be it vacation, new job, retirement..  I made the card A2 and folded the front back 2 inches and then added a piece of scrap inside. See photo below.
 


recipe: michaels recollection base, quick quote scraps.

Billie and Monika Week 8 / background and or no designer paper challenge between ourselves / Takea moment to

Monday April 20, 2015
 
Well we are on Week 8 of the Billie and Monika background and or no designer paper challenge between ourselves.
 
Monika from Creative with Monika and I are doing a different background and or no designer each Monday and without die cuts.
 
This week it was my choice and I saw this awesome card by Julie Campbell  awhile back and drooled.. I loved it and said ok this will be our next challenge for us to try.  You can see Julie's card at the link above.  
Thanks Julie Campbell for the inspiration. 
 

This is my card. I used Kuretake paints and just added colors till I got the effect I wanted. I wanted mine to be a little darker.. ok a lot darker.. I then added some splatters.  I then took out my Paper trey ink retro vol. 3 that I used last week for the diamonds and used some of the other borders in the set to get the design on all of the papers. I used ranger inks to cover white paper and then black ink to stamp the designs. I cut the green, but I did punch the circle.. I tried to cut one but it was not going to be round no matter what I tried. I used the Paper trey ink sentiment Harvest berries.  The little hearts are from Simon Says stamp set.  The stitching is faux.. I took my hole punch and just pierced the paper and then took a blue pen and ran it from hole to hole to give a thread stitch look. I am very pleased with the way it came out and I really am excited to be using stamps and making my own designer papers and backgrounds.
I hope you head over to Monika's blog and see her card and leave her some love.

Bingo at Catch the bug / Happy birthday

Saturday April 18, 2015
 
 
 
Choose any three in a row and make your card. I chose to use Flower theme, scallop, 3 layers
 

I made another background and wanted to show it off so using this darling image Kidz fairy sitter
I cut her out and then die cut a scallop piece for her to sit on. I had a scrap of water color paper that kind a had the colors I was using so I added it along the edge of the scallop so it looked more like a ledge for her. The background I did on a piece of chip board. I spritzed it with different colors of dylusinons sprays. It came out really cool looking.  I added some added flowers from a su punch and added some bling to the center. There's some glitter on her wings.
I hope you play along at Catch the bug..

Catch the bug / Bugaboo Free Friday / Always there to cheer you

Friday April 17, 2015
 
 
 
This is my card using Summer Butterfly Bear.. I think it's a girl bear.. I had a left over attempt at Bokeh technique.  A few weeks back Monika and I did the Bokeh technique and I made about 3 attempts before I found one I liked. This one was just too washed out but of course I cant throw away because some day I would fine a card to make and use it.. WELL TODAY IS THE DAY.. I thought it kind a gave a weather look to the background so just added the sentiment and image a few hearts colored with copics and wink of stella.  Loving the look.

Wednesday April 15, 2015
 
 
 
 
Our sponsor for this challenge is Fresh Brewed Designs

This is a first for me using a design by Fresh Brewed and I chose to use GRACE BEACH FUN   She is having some fun on the beach. Wish I was there. I wanted to make a beach scene so found this designer paper from DCWV and I have a stamp that will stamp sand if you turn it one way and if you turned it around you get water.. I chose to use sand because she just came back from the water catching all of those crabs.. and getting her flip flops.. oh how times have changed.. growing up in my days they were thongs.. Not now days.  I like the hibiscus flowers in the corner. Gives a nice tropical feel.

I hope you head over to enter into our ATG challenge at Inspiration Destination.

Inspiration Destination #29 - ATG - I zig you zag

Wednesday April 15, 2015
 
 

Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo
 

I think this image is too funny. I found the sentiment from Simon says and think it went perfect with the images. The different snails faced different directions..  The image is Scene it snail.. 
I once again made my own background design. I took water color paper, a marble all over background stamp and embossed it in white. Then I took a few Glimmer mist bottles and sprayed them to get the effect that I wanted to kind a give a natural look.  Dried it and I think it came out great. It was sad to have so much of it behind the stamped image but there was no way I could cut out the image and make it work. It's really pretty in real life.. I colored the images with copics.

Monika and Billie week 7 / diamond and manly

Monday April 13, 2015
 
It's week 7 for the Monika and Billie background and or no designer paper challenge between ourselves.
 
Monika's choice this week is DIAMONDS BACKGROUND AND MASCULINE
 
I do not have a diamond overall background stamp - BUT I do have the Paper Trey Ink retro volume 3 backgrounds.. it has a few different styles and they are all just a couple of rows /repeat stamp so I took  diamond  and I just repeated the stamp till my white paper was covered then cut it down to size. I like the look. I used Stampin Up not quite navy ink.  Then I took the Simon Says all boy stamps and colored the dude, shoes, game controls and cut them out. I wanted a bright blue behind the sentiments so I took a bright blue copic pen and cut a piece of white paper just a little larger then the sentiment and used the bright blue to color the paper, I think it pops the sentiments. The happy birthday I don't know who puts it out.  I loved coloring the tennis shoes. The game controls also but the shoes were my favorite. All are on pop dots.  I think I did a good job with Monika's choice for us this 7th week. 
I hope you make it over to Creative with Monika and see her card and give her some love.

Case-ing Monika's card / Happy Blooming birthday

Sunday April 12, 2015
 
It's late in the day Sunday but I wanted to join in on the Case-ing Monika's card of choice in celebration of her Birthday..
 
this is the card I chose to CASE... Kind a .. You know me I have a little different twist. This is Monika's card below.
 

This is my card..  I used water color paper below and embossed it. I whipped versa mark over the inside of the embossing folder and then ran it through my vagabond.. then poured clear embossing powder over it.. I then started with H2O paints... WELL the versa mark filled the whole card.. so the H2O's would not color it because it was ALL embossed.. So there is a backside to the of the water color paper and so then I used the H2O's and colored the piece. Then cut it down and adhered to the white cardstock. I cut a small strip of black paper and added above the water color paper. Found a nice green piece of scrap and cut a circle. I took the Stampin up flower bloom and ranger inks and stamped the flowers and leaves and then used the matching die to cut it out. I layered the pieces and added to the circle. Added a few sequins and the sentiment.  It's not manly but it is close to Monika's card.

Catch the bug - Earth day - Recycle

Saturday April 11, 2015
 
Catch the bug challenge this week is for Earth day - use something recycled on your card.
 

This is my card and of course had to use the World Girl  image..  My recycle is the flower at the bottom. It's out of the paper towel cloth that I used to wipe up the inks for this card and other paint/inks from other projects.  They are too pretty to throw away and this was perfect for the card. I also used simon says stencils and texture paste for the background then added some H2O paints once it was dry. Then I layered the card on SU base and added some SU black and scrap of yellow. I had some black mesh so added it behind the image and sentiment. The sentiment is from Tech. Tues. 
I hope you find something to recycle and join the challenge at Catch the bug.

The challenge this week is DISTRESS


I am using the image Sport #9  from Fitztown..  I thought it would be a perfect Fathers day card. I distressed the papers.. I am so not a distress person but it was fun making the card and taking my Tim Holtz distressing tool that I don't think I have ever used.. It was fun and I think it makes for a perfect look for the masculine card.  I colored the image in copics and used my cloud template and ranger inks to make the clouds. The sentiment is from Simon Says.  I used kraft from Kraft Journal for the base and the designer paper is Echo Park.. this and that.  I hope I have inspired you to play along over at Brown Sugar.. The challenge is  DISTRESS

Wednesday April 8, 2015
 
 
 
Our sponsor this week is Eureka Stamps
 

I am using the image WRAPPED UP KITTY AND PUPPY   I have a lot of wood mounted rubber stamps from Eureka and now I have a digi from Eureka.  Aren't these little trouble makers having some fun?  This card would be great for Christmas so I will have to keep this in mind when I start on Christmas cards.  I wanted a bright colored ribbon and then after I was done coloring it I thought hum I should of checked my stash of ribbons to see if I had that color.. well I won some ribbons from Buckwell craft supplies on a card I entered on her blog and low and behold I have that color in the pack I received from her.. I was so glad because I really needed something in the left hand corner. I tried putting the sentiment over there but it just did not look right so this ribbon and flowers went there and I think it looks good. The flowers are my su punch and leaves ms punch.

I hope you make it over to Inspiration destination for our ATG challenge and play along.

Inspiration Destinaton #28 - ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES / Near the sea

Wednesday April 8, 2015
 
Inspiration Destination #28 - ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES
 

Our sponsor for this card is Patties Creations Digital Images
 

I love living in the Pacific Northwest and being able to go out to the sound. I love water and we live by a river it runs along our property so I do get my water fix when I walk to the back pasture and look down to the river or taking the four legged kid down the dead end road that is along the river, it's beautiful. I had a dear friend who I had known for 35 years who grew up in Missouri and would come out to visit and she loved the pacific ocean and collecting shells. She moved to Washington state and then met her husband. They moved to Montana but they would come out yearly to stay on the ocean.  She passed away 6 years ago and this sentiment was one of the few stamps her husband knew she would of wanted me to have. I have to tell you I did shed a tear making this card. I miss her so much. She was also a card /sb maker.
 I love the ocean any time of the year. In a couple weeks we have a ladies church retreat and it's on the ocean and our hotel faces the water. Love the sound of waves and walking the beach along with the spiritual growth. It's a great time.  I thought of this as I made my card.
 
The image for this card is Seashell border 2  I loved coloring the shells and I wanted the sentiment to be on its side. I think it gives a great touch to the card. I have a sand dollar button that I added on top of the twine.   I hope you find time to head over to Inspiration Destination to play along this week. It's always ATG.
