Pool Time

We've got a Mini Crop going on over at Creative Inspiration and this month's theme is color. Every challenge will be using a different color. My challenge is to use yellow on your project. You can add in another color but yellow must be the most prominent color.

I pulled a bunch of scraps out and made a 4 layer mat for the photo. The bubbles around the photo were done with a stencil and some glass bead texture gel mixed with some blue gelato. It's hard to see in the photo but the glass beads really make them look like bubbles. Then I just went through my stash and pulled out different embellishments. 

I hope you'll come join our mini crop and play along. There's always lots of inspiration there!

Snow Fun

I've got a sketch reveal up at Sketches in Thyme today. We had a fun sketch from Bev Code to work with.

This came together so quickly. I used a stencil and modeling paste on the background paper and then used the smooshing technique with some water color paint. For the big circle behind the photo, the little chipboard circle and title, I covered them all with some Distress Oxide ink and then sprinkled water on top. I also flicked some silver ink from a Wink Of Luna pen on the big circle. Added a few old brads and it was done!

We've got a DT sketch reveal going on over at Creative Inspiration today. I just fell in love with this sketch and here's my take on it. I hope you'll stop by and check out all the other DT member's layouts and be sure to play along with us. We'd love to see your take on the sketch!

Here's the sketch

My layout was done using some really old papers I've had in my stash. Actually the paper with the red crabs on it is from a DCWV stack that is probably at least 10 years old. The stickers for the title were some of the first stickers I ever bought, so they are from 2006. It always makes me feel good when I use up some old stash!

Santa Card

We've got a mini crop going on over at Creative Inspiration and this month's theme is die cuts. This was perfect timing for me. I recently bought a couple of Christmas themed dies and one of the challenges in the mini crop was to use a Christmas die.

Isn't he just the cutest! After I die cut him I embossed it to give his beard some dimension and then inked over it with a light gray. I colored in his face using a combination of watercolor pencils and Spectrum Noir markers. 

I hope you'll come join us and play along with one or several of our mini crop challenges.

Fairy Tales

Here's a card I made for 2 different challenges. One at Scrapping for Less using their February Flavor of the Month Card Kit and the other for Creative Inspiration where you had to make an anniversary card.

I just love this little stamp and really enjoyed coloring it in with my watercolor pencils. I die cut two stitched frames and angled them around the image, stamped the sentiment and then just fussy cut it out randomly. Inked all the edges and added some sequins and it's ready to go.

3rd Grade

I've got a sketch reveal up today over at Sketches in Thyme. I was digging through my stash of paper and found some old ones that I thought would be really fun to use. Plus we have a really fun sketch to work with this week. Here's what I came up with.

Here's the sketch

Everything on this layout has been in my stash for quite a while except for the title, which was cut with my Cricut, and the acrylic stars. I love it whenever I can use up some old stash!

I hope you'll stop by and check out all the different takes on our sketch this week and play along with us at Sketches in Thyme.

Easter Card

Just finished this Easter card and thought I'd share it with everyone! This card fits the bunny challenge going on over at the Creative with Stamps blog.

I started with an easter egg background and then took a piece of pink cardstock and used a flowered background stamp. I stamped it with Versamark Ink and then embossed it with silver and white embossing powder. Added the doilie, ribbons and die cut the bunny and bow. Love how it came out!

See Through Easter Card

I've got a challenge up today at Creative Inspiration. Today is All Sorts Saturday and I decided to make a See-Through Easter Card. I watched a video by Jennifer McGuire on it and thought I'd give it a try. She makes hers by using background dies. I don't have any of those so I cut my card with my Cricut.

I cut out 2 panels and glued the tops together after scoring the top panel so you can easily open the card. I then cut 4 circles for the sentiment. You need two for each panel. You need to add one on each side of the panels lining the two sentiment pieces up. That way you won't see the glue on the back of the sentiment pieces and you'll have a place to write on the inside of the card and a place to stamp made by on the back.

Cookies for Santa

I've got a scraplift challenge up at Creative Inspiration today. The page I lifted was found on Pinterest and can be seen here.

This was so easy, yet a bit time consuming. I just cut thin strips of several different papers and then wove them. The hardest part was gluing them down and keeping them straight. I didn't add any other embellishments since it was so busy and decided to anchor the page by mounting it all on a piece of black cardstock and then doing the title in black also.
