Week 5 of Monika and Billie background and or no designer paper - USE DOTS AND A SENTIMENT

Monday March 30, 2015
 
Week 5 is Monika's choice she chose DOTS AND SENTIMENT
 
It's like Monika's reading my mind or I am reading hers. When she said DOTS I thought of my Reverse Confetti sentiment and knew I wanted to use a lot of different color's of ink to reflect the sentiment. I took down a lot of my ranger inks and my Simon says lots of circles and chose a small and smaller dot and just stamped away. I do like it. Quite colorful and with the sentiment it says a lot.
 
I hope you head over to Monika's blog Creative with Monika and see her card.

So couldn't wait for spring or summer.. it's hard to do it with coats so winter it was not possible. I really wanted this card to be bright and colorful so I colored the image first and then went for the card stock.  I chose Stampin up base and scraps for the other colors.  I used the Lil Inker stitching die and Stampin up punch.  The sentiment is from Stampin up.  I like the happy colors. I hope you play along, its ATG and remember to always add a sentiment.

Tuesday March 24, 2015

I thought of making this a mothers day card but scratched my head and thought ... no why not just make it a loving card. You are sunshine for my soul.. this way it can be for a male or female and for anytime.  I thought the little kitty should be sun color for the sunshine in the sentiment.  I used the towel and  colorless blender solution for the technique on the kitties but not sure if I like the effect.. I might need to find a different texture towel.  I used papers from Basic Grey max and whiskers. The sentiment is from Verve called happy hello.

Friday March 20, 2015
 
Free Friday at Catch the bug  and you'll find this cutie in the Bugaboo store
 
 
This is the Free Friday called ASTRONAUT    and I wanted to have him look like he is in space so I used some watercolor paper and my Kuretake Garsai Tambi paints and just kept applying the paints and drying and adding and drying till I got the effect I wanted. I then watered down some white paint and used a paint brush and splattered to get a sky full of stars.  I wish it looked as good on the computer as it does in the real.. I had this great sentiment from My Favorite Things that went perfect for the image also the rocket is from MFT.  I embossed some paper till I got a nice smooth look in silver and die cut the rocket out, I did the same with the flame but hand cut it out. Gave a nice added touch of space to the card.

Catch the bug Humor Wednesday - One cool chick

Wednesday March 18, 2015
 
 

So since it's POULTRY DAY tomorrow, I used this fun image Cool Chick 
 I was messing around with some watercolor papers and my H2O paints and did this fun background. I took some white paint thinned down and splattered it over the background. I wish you could see the sparkle background because of the H2O paints. I really think it's too pretty for the image after my DH said it looked more like a night sky. I took some copper twine from Stampin up and just pooled it. I added the sentiment that came with the image and some fun su punched flowers with viva pearl drops. The leaves are ms punch.

Inspiration Destination #25 - I exercise

Wednesday March 18, 2015
 
 
 

 
Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo
 
 
This is my card using the Bugaboo image Mildred exercise spill coffee
The sentiment is not from Mildred,, it sounds more like Stella but thought it went well with the image. I colored her with the water color paint Kuretake Garsai Tambi and was so surprised to see that the Kraft paper from Kraft Journal didn't ball or feather up. I was so impressed. I love these paints. So worth the cost.  I had some strips of water color paper that I cut off of other projects and saved them so I just cut them up and slid them in behind the image. The were too pretty to throw away.. I used some sequins to finish her off. I was working on another project and set this image aside.. when I was splatting white paint on the other project some of the white hit this image.. that's why there are spots. I wasn't going to start over.. hate when that happens.

Tuesday March 17, 2015
 
New Release day at Catch the bug  the new release can be found in the Bugaboo store 
 New Release is Egg tulip peeker 
 

Since I don't send out Easter cards thought I would make this one a birthday card.  I am thought it would make a fun cute card for that special birthday.  I left the egg plain vs. adding some dots or lines. The die behind the image looks yellow but in real it's more of a lime green and the purple is deep purple. I wish there was a way to get true colors.. but I don't know if there is a way. I wouldn't know where to go to figure it out. I love her little bunny ears.

Week 3 of Monika and Billie background - Butterflies and stripes

Monday March 16, 2015
 
Week 3 is Monika's choice and it's  BUTTERFLIES AND STRIPES
 
I knew what I wanted to do when she mentioned the butterflies and stripes.. It was trying to decide which butterfly to use. I have quite a few because it's a favorite image. I chose Taylored Expressions butterflies and sentiment. I masked them and then used my stripes by My favorite things and stamped the green over the masked butterflies.  I think I should of probably used a mouse pad or something under the card so it would of stamped better around the masking. I don't know if it would of helped or not. But I am happy with the layout of the card and colors.
 
I hope you make it over to Monika's blog Creative with Monika and see her butterflies and stripes card. Give her some love..

Catch the bug - Bugaboo New Release / BUNNY TRIO - happy spring

Tuesday March 10, 2015
 
It's Tuesday so that is New Release day at Bugaboo digi stamps  New release is Bunny Trio
 

Head over to Catch the bug to see our cards and what the Design Team did with the new image. Bunny Trio. I am not much for Easter cards so thought I would make it a Happy spring card instead. I don't know what it is lately but I am loving grey card stock.. and no it's not because of 50 shades of grey either..  I used washi tape because it needed some additional color and I have so much of it I need to use it up.  I colored each bunny a different color and then I saw somewhere on taking a towel and putting non colored copic on it and lay it over the colored image (before you color anything else) and it gives a texture look so I cut a 3 x 3 out of a terry towel and did it. So that is the texture you see on the bunnies. I then finished coloring the card. The little sentiment is from Paper trey ink.

Week 2 of Billie and Monika background - BOKEH

Monday March 9, 2015
 
oops I posted too soon.. sorry Monika
 
Week 2  Billie and Monika  background   My choice BOKEH (sounds like bouquet)
 
Well I survived week 1 of the background challenge between Monika and myself.  For week 2 we are challenging each other to do a BOKEH technique.. Now I did not even know what it was as Monika mentioned it.. So I went to my favorite source of info... U-TUBE..  What an awesome look and technique.  This is my first try.. This is my third try the first two were with darker colors and my first one I made too many white spots and it overtook and lost the look I was trying to get. The second one just too many again.. So back to U-TUBE and watch a few different videos and went back to my craft room while it was fresh in my head. Went with lighter colors and less white spots, kind a kept with 3 large, 3 medium, and I think about 5 smaller ones and a couple of really tiny ones. It's suppose to have that look you see in photography with bubble backgrounds.. It's hard to explain.. suggest U-TUBE.  I used water color paper and three re-inkers watered down. I wet the water color paper and then dropped with my paint brush the spots of ink and let it move around on it's own. You want to cover the whole water color paper.. Also remember let it go on dark because when it dries it softens out and it's not as dark. I let it dry overnight and the next night I took a piece of x-ray film and my circle dies and die cut the circles so I had a template. Then take your white ink pad and sponge dauber and placed the circle template over it and daubed the circles to get the effect below. I then let it dry again overnight and next night added the sentiment and sequins.  I layered it onto a black, green, and curry card base.  I will be doing this again.. I will also still use my rejects on some other cards as I cant throw anything away and it would make for a nice background with an image over it so you cant tell the mistakes..
 
Please go over to Monika's blog and see her BOKEH card.

Catch the bug Saturday challenge -ATG / a house is not a home

Saturday March 7, 2015
 
Welcome to another challenge ATG at Catch the bug / Bugaboo
 
 


This is my card using the image from Bugaboo / Catch the bug.. Kidz boy puppy  Isn't he cute?  I love the dog to and the masculine look to the card. The sentiment I don't remember who it is by but I love the saying. I can not image our house with out a dog.. fur baby.. I know when we lost our Lakeland a year and half ago, dh said when our Charlie passes he doesn't want any more dogs.. I cant imagine it and guess well cross that road when the time comes. In the mean time I cherish every moment with my fur baby.. No back to the card I made. I needed to get a lot of those colors in the card so I did my strips down the side again and used some of the colors in the cloths. I love using scraps for that purpose. I am such a hoarder / lover of papers I cant throw them away.. no matter how small. I just might get a punched flower out of that little piece. Any how this is my card. I hope you play along and enter your card over at Catch the bug.

Fitztown #69 challenge

Thursday March 5, 2015
 
Welcome to another month long challenge #69 at Fitztown where it's always ANYTHING GOES with a twist USE GREEN
 
 
This is the card I made using the image from Fitztown called Easter 5  it's such a cute little bunny.
I thought with Easter coming that it would be a great card for a grandchild..  I was looking through some paint strips I have in a box.. so I chose the green (which is part of the challenge twist) which is also paint chip card and used my spellbinder die to cut it out.. then looking further for a color theme to go with green and saw this awesome purple paint card.. I love the graduation of colors on the card.. If you look on the left side you can see the paint name by the star.. I cut it down and added another designer paper to give a little more contrast to the kraft card base. I have this variegated ribbon and used it to help add colors and a star button over the knot.  This card makes me smile.
