You're perfect in my book - Catch the bug ABC

Monday March 18, 2019
 
Today is Monday so over at Catch the bug
it's ANYTHING BUT a CARD.. ABC
 
 
So I made a book mark for my ABC project.  I took a Tim Holtz tag and then I traced around the monkey image which is BM topper.. and adhered the image to the tag. I colored the image with copics. I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says and then there was so much white space I took couple different Washi tapes and added them. I punched a hole to the top of the tag over the one from the TH tag. I took a tag enforcer that I had stamped and colored over the hole. I put the ribbon through it and tied some twine around the ribbon to hold it. I think this will go into my bible study book.. It's perfect in my eye.

Yappy Birthday - Always fun challenge

Monday March 18, 2019
 
Welcome to another fun challenge at Always Fun challenge
Our theme is CATS OR DOGS
 

 
Being a dog lover (which you can probably tell by me using 4 different stamp companies for my card).. I have two awesome loving sweet dogs that we rescued and they are my precious little ones.
For my card I used Mama Elephant frame die and then used Ranger ink and did the color behind it. I used foam tape so it's raised. I then stamped the dogs from Mama Elephant, My Favorite Things, Sugar Pea and Gerda Steiner. I colored with copics and fussy cut them all out. I stamped the sentiment and then added the doggies to the card. I love the fun look on their faces. The Yappy Birthday is perfect.. for my three fur babies next hair cut I am giving this to the groomer. His birthday is day after the cut.. I think he will enjoy it.. along with a cupcake.

Birthdays are like shooting stars

Sunday March 17, 2019 


This is my card. I wanted to used this Taylored Expressions image and sentiment. With the sentiment talking about shooting stars..  I needed a night time sky. So I took a piece of Bristol paper and created the ground using my ground template and then created the sky using Ranger ink. I needed some stars so I took Perfect Pearls and watered the powder down and using the handle tip of a paint brush I created the circles (stars) after they dried I took a glitter sparkle pen and added some lines to a few of the stars to give a star look. I then went through my scraps and using Simon says died I cut the house and trees. I added them to the background piece. Then using My favorite things circle die I cut the piece out. I curved the sentiment (there was a little curve to it already I just curved fixed it so it fit the curve better) I added the rest of the sentiment below. I then stamped the sheep and lightly colored with copics and fussy cut it out and added it to the card.. I sure love this fun look and will be trying this on more cards.

Happy Mother's Day 2

Saturday March 16, 2019
 
I have been playing with my Ranger Oxide inks and more smooching. I posted one of my card a few days ago, here's another.. I love doing this. Just smash down some inks on a craft sheet, sprits with water and lay your water color paper and smooch it around. Then I tried it and laid it down into the inks again so I could get some layers. I set it aside to dry for awhile. Then got my Simon Says stamp and stamped the flowers two times.  I then stamped the SS sentiment and added some sequins.. It kinda upsets me that the flower centers aren't more open. They come out so dark. Even when I stamped onto white plain cardstock the centers were too dark. I don't think I will use it too many more times unless I can figure how to get a nicer image.
