Hope it won't take to long - Inspiration Destination #149

Wednesday April 25, 2018
 
Welcome back to another two week challenge at
Our theme is ANYTHING GOES
 


I decided to make a get well card. I can always use them so now I am making one. I started with Stampin up gray card stock and embossing folder. I used a dark C5 copic to add the mortar between the bricks. I then used a My favorite things postage die and Art Impressions stamp and colored with copics. I stamped the sentiment and die cut the stitch circle which is by Stampin up.  This is such a fun card and know who ever gets it will make them feel better.

You quack me up - Sunny Day Crafting #17

Wednesday April 25, 2018
 
We're back with another challenge for you at
 Sunny Day Crafting #17 and the theme is
DUCK
 
 
As soon as I saw this theme was duck I knew I would use this fun image from Your Next Stamp. I stamped the image on water color paper and painted with my Mission paints then fussy cut the image out. I then stamped with Versa Mark the Stampin up dots all over the background. I took a small strip of Stamping UP paper and adhered to the bottom and then added the cut duck. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of scrap paper and used the My Favorite Things speech die. I really kept this card CAS.

Happy Birthday - Bugaboo new release

Tuesday April 24, 2018
 
Bugaboo has an old new release.. again I think it's one that is now being added to the store from the old store.
This is Dottie birthday..
Check out the design teams creations over at Catch the bug.
 
 
For my card I decided to pick the background paper first then that would determine the image colors. So this fun striped paper got picked so for Dottie's party dress I went with red. I gave her chocolate cup cake icing and of course chocolate cup cake or is it white.. hum .. what do you think? I colored her with copics. I then added some Stampin up and EK punched scallops / circles for the flower and used a gem brad from SU for the center. The leaves are SU dies. I added Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to her lips, earrings, dots on hat and candle flame.

Sending you oceans of love

Monday April 23, 2018
 
Playing again in my craft-room again I decided to paint a scene. This bird I had painted summer of 2017 and it was in a bowl I keep die cut images for future projects. Well this My favorite things bird looks like she needs to be on an island. So I used my Mission paints and created the island, water and clouds. I used a white gel pen to give white caps and sea foaming look. I used some scraps and Lawn Fawn tree and coconuts. I added some Ranger inks to give some shading. The bird was also colored with Mission paints.  I think I need an island vacation.. My brother and SIL go to Hawaii each March for a month. oh I envy them for being able to do this. I love the photos he send me.

hello - you sexy beast

Saturday April 21, 2018
 
Hello you sexy beast.. I loved the sentiment stamp set from Simon Says and so I was looking through my stamps and saw this fun image from Stampin Up. I stamped it and colored with copics. I used the Taylored Expressions postage die and cut it out. I then found this scrap of paper I created a long time ago with my Gelli plate. I added Stampin up designer paper to create the background. I die cut the SS hello three times out of white and once out of gray and stacked them to give depth. I stamped the rest of the sentiment and cut it out.  This card is fun and sexy.. LOL

This image is called Butterfly rose girlz   I colored the image with copics and then cut the image out using Lil inker die. I found a scrap of designer paper and stamped the Stampin up sentiment.
