Baby card and old scraps

Monday July 6, 2015
 
I did not take time to put the papers or stamp set put away from a week ago.. so made another card. I used the same dcwv dp and cut strips. I then added foam behind to give some lift. I then stamped the baby which is a one complete stamp /inkadinkado. I then added a strip above again on foam and I did not like the white space above so die cut some hearts from MFT and added them. The green one is on foam dots. I like the look. I colored only the BABY with prisma pencils.  B's are yellow, A is purple and Y is green.

Catch the bug Free Friday / Happy birthday Princess

Friday July 3, 2015
 
 
 
 
This is princess Charlie, I think she would be perfect for the little princess grandchild or daughter.. She is so cute.  I made the background paper and up close you can see some stars that I did in gold ink and stencil. The circles are various sprays by Dylusions. I have a circle stencil and I sprayed a color and dried it then went to another color and moved the stencil a little and sprayed/dried again and kept going till I had the effect I wanted. I then took a star stencil and gold ink and did stars in various areas. It look really cool in real life. I wanted to hurry up and use it so I fussy cut Princess Charlie out and layered her.

This challenge is to use RED - WHITE - BLUE
 
 
 
The image I am using can be found at Morgans Etsy shop   I am using Cameo 8

I am not one for making 4th of July cards but I know there are people that have the 4th for birthdays.. so I decided to go with that and made this card. The sentiment can be for birthday or just well wishes. I had fun trying to figure out what I wanted to do. I am really pleased with the way it came out and the brightness of the card. I used some black card stock for a back drop as the white card was washed out in my white light box. I hope you get over to Morgans ArtWorld and play along. The challenge runs for two weeks.

Aud Sentiments #135 - Animal & Sentiment - Happy Birthday

Thursday July 2-14, 2015
 
 
 
 
Our sponsor for these two weeks is Imagine That!
 
 

I am using this cute bear called heart balloons,, did you see the cute little mouse holding on for dear life?? What a cute image.. I decided to use a new die -for me- from Simon says and then fussy cut out the image and add her to some foam strips and make it a birthday card.
I used a music sheet of designer paper and inked the edges to give it some depth, I added the twine to the balloon stem and added a few ss hearts. The sentiment is also from Simon says.  I did use the stampin up roller called whimsy for the background on the blue.  I also added some white dots on her ribbon and ruffle parts of her dress. I like doing that cause it adds more texture look to the image.
I hope you play along and remember to use a sentiment on the front of your card.

Inspiration Destination #40 - This is Everyday life

Wednesday July 1, 2015
 
 
 
Our sponsor this week is Patties Creations
 

I chose to use this lovely creation from Patties Creations called Beach cabana trio.. I have never been to Florida but I watch HGTV and see beach places with awesome colors.. So I went with this color creation. I love the look and brightness of the card. I added my clouds to the back ground and also added a little line of blue for a hint of water.. I did the brown for the sand and took a terry cloth towel with a little copic 0 and added to the cloth then added to the brown (I did the sand first before I colored anything else on the card.. don't ask me how I know to do that first..)   I added the sentiment on the vellum as I did not want to take away from the background. I added a few sand dollars and a shell and of course I needed a bird .. it's not a seagull but I kind of gave it the look in color.  I so want to be on this beach..
I hope you head over to Inspiration Destination and play along.

Catch the bug / New Release / Live laugh love

Tuesday June 30, 2015
 
Welcome to new release day at Catch the bug / Bugaboo 
LIVE LAUGH LOVE BUTTERFLIES
 

This is a fun release.  I love butterflies they are so colorful and you see quite a few during the spring/ summer and they look so delicate. I know there are probably many ways to use the circle sentiments. I just used a small circle die and then outside of the dotted area I colored with a copic to make it look like another layer, then cut a larger circle of su dp and layered it. I chose washi tape add along the side of each circle, added some sequins and thought that was enough.

Scrap card and new to me die - Soft & sweet

Monday June 29, 2015
 
I was needing a baby card and I had this die I have not used of the t-shirt.. I though why not make a shirt and make it with the arrow pointing to the baby.. Perfect for the baby shower card. Also this stamp set from Inkadinkado I have never used before. I chose some DCWV papers and the arrow is also from My favorite things along with the shirt. . I will be using this shirt again. I think this die could make a great masculine card with some camo paper, or some animal print. I am sure I must have some words to put on it.. hummm I will be making another card soon with those idea..

Scraps and new stamp - Let's party

Thursday June 25, 2015
 
I know I used this stamp a few days ago but wanted to make a birthday card for anyone. Last one was masculine. I think this one could be quite masculine also. I stamped the Simon says happy birthday on the base in SU ink. Then die cut the frames with SU dies. I used hearts and stars from the Tech Tues. (globe die I used on another card posted earlier) I used scraps of paper for all of this. I used wink of stella on the hearts and stars.

                          Our sponsor this week is PolkaDoodles

 I am using the image Break time from PolkaDoodles, I thought he looked like he was dreaming so used two simon says stamps to get the sentiment. This little boy is so cute and the little critter is going for that yummy sandwich.. He was a lot of fun to color. I was a little scared when I started but after I got going I could see where everything was and I think it turned out pretty good. I added the wood half circles to stay with the woods/outdoor theme of the card.

Our sponsor this week it Stitchy Bear
 

I am using the image Birthday girl / 29 again... Too cute I don't know that I would want to be 29 again but I would like to be younger.. Now that I am older I would change some things in my life and saved more and be retired now vs. 18 months from now.. Oh well it is what it is. I am thankful for so much in my life.. I had a great time making this card and adding the bright colors behind her. She looks like she'd be a fun person to hang out with.

This is my fun card using the image Cool cat kitty from SLS lines.. How funny are they?? I had this sentiment that is un-mounted and quite old.. I think it came from rubber baby buggy bumper.. I don't even know if they are still around.. I though it fit the riff raff group of cats..   I used the plaid paper from BG max and whiskers and the orange is from recollections (michaels) and base is kraft from the Kraft journal site. I used a fish button with the shank cut off below .. to kind a go with the fish/cat theme.  I hope you take time and play along over at Inspiration Destination.. it's always anything goes..

Bugaboo New image / Someone remembers

Tuesday June 23, 2015
 
New release at Catch the bug / Bugaboo 
 
Welcome to a new release of the image Butterfly rose corner
 

I usually don't do larger cards. This one is measuring 5 inch square.  I really wanted to use this sentiment from Paper trey ink and the hint of a cross in the background. I got a little goober on the stamp when I stamped it off and of course did not know till I lifted the image. Bummer but the roses and all were already colored in.  What to do but say it's a home made card..   I know... if I hadn't mentioned it you'd never of seen it..  LOL.

Ooh La La digi papers - #183 - Happy Birthday / Chinese Vase Florals

Monday June 22, 2015
 
I decided since I got two files to use of digi designer papers I would make two cards for the theme #183  Happy Birthday at Ooh La La
 
I liked both files for the theme and so made two birthday cards as both are so different.
 
Thanks you Ooh La La for letting me be a guest designer for the month of June.
 
 
I made this card today using the Chinese Vase Floral Extravaganza digi set.. Again there are more papers than what I used.. I wanted to use as much as I could so I made a gate folded card but the left side over laps just a quarter inch or so.   I wanted to use the awesome framed photo and to make it work for me I chose to do my card so the frame part is on the front and then the tag has the sentiment on it. The inside is left for a larger sentiment.   I used a SU card base and the sentiment is from PTI.

I am guest designer at Ooh La La so I got to use some great digi papers.. If you didn't see my June 8th postings.. scroll down and see the awesome digi papers by Ooh La La..
 
I think I am addicted to digi papers.. Tell me these aren't BEAUTIFUL.. I dare you. I drooled all over them.. I love the turn back page, the woven paper..all of them.. There are more than the few that I used in the file.  I just love the looks.  This is Seaweed wrap digi's by Ooh La La.
 
The theme is Happy Birthday so I found a cute sentiment by the rubber café that I thought went great with the image and then the happy birthday is from paper trey ink.  I used SU card base.

Scraps, stamps / Congratulations

Sunday June 21, 2015
 
I used this Congratulations a few cards back but wanted to use it again for this card. I had some scraps so did a small border along the bottom and larger strip across the top part.

Here is the BINGO card to go by..
 

This is my card using Kidz sitter music   and I chose to use the diagonal left to right.. Teal/orange/pink - Ribbon - Embossing
I used SU card base. I used a piece of water color paper and clear embossed the PTI music and heat embossed, I then took Dylusion sprays in Teal, Pink, Orange and spritzed the water color paper. I then adhered it to the SU card base that is a turquoise/teal color.. I added the ribbon and the sentiment is from Tech. Tues. I used copics to color the paper before I stamped the sentiment. I colored the image in Copics and fussy cut her out so she could sit on the ribbon. I used some wink of stella on her but again you cant see it.  I felt like this child is at summer camp just sitting on a dock listening to music and having a great time.

Catch the bug / Bugaboo New Release - 40

Tuesday June 16, 2015
 
 
Bugaboo has a new image called 40
 

This is the new image at Bugaboo. I thought I would just leave it 40 and not give it a 40 what.. It could be an anniversary.. birthday.. retirement.. weight loss..   So I just decided to keep it simple.  I used Kraft card stock from Kraft Journal and used the Stampin up whimsy wheel and Simon Says Khaki ink. I used SU dies. Colored the image and added a half pearl to the butterfly. It's complete.
