Inspired By All the Little Things #58

Hello! 
Bottles and White flutters inspired my card for the challenge at Inspired By All the Little Things #58

 I used MARVELOUS Perfumes and Color Bursts for the bottles. And Beautiful Butterflies 1 and Beautiful Butterflies 2 stamped with White pigment ink on GRAY CS. The coordinating dies made for easy popping up of wings of the butterflies and the bottles, which are partially die-cut.
 Embossed with GOLD TINSEL EP and embellished with Coral Necklace couture mix.
The sweet tiny banner die carried by the butterfly is from City Girls Park Life.

Can't wait to see how you are Inspired By!!

Fresh Tulips

Once again I'm in LOVE with the inspiration photo for the new challenge at Inspired By All the Little Things #57
This is a One Layer card using TULIP from Altenew and a bit o'masking to mimic the vast number of tulips in the photo. I also added a touch of interest to the BG with the SKETCHED LINE stencil. All inks are CRISP INKS:)

Can't wait to see how you are Inspired By!!

Theme and Sketch Reminder

Here's my reminder card for the THEME and Sketch challenge at STAMPlorations:

  • I masked off the sides of an A2 white CS then brushed ink over the ETHNIC FLUTTER 1 stencil..this is a large stencil, approx. 4"x7" in size. I placed it over the open area three times in different positions using gradient colors of yellow and peach:) 
  • Removed the stencil and the masks
  • Placed ALL the word sentiments from Trendy Spring Blooms
  • Inked them in coordinating shades of color
  • Stamped some of the BLOOMs, from the same set,in shades of gray
  • Trimmed the finished panel with the largest Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Die

Hope to see you playing along! You have until the end of the month to add your card to the gallery.

Hello There!
I have a card and short video of the process for the Altenew May 2017 Inspiration Challenge. The colors are so Cheerful in the inspiration photo!! And I REALLY enjoyed watching MAY's video:)


The main stamp set used is Vintage Flowers with the Halftone Smile and coor. die. All inks are mini cube collection Crisp Inks from Altenew: Red Cosmos, Red Sunset, and Rose Petal

The greens I used for the leaves are Forest Glade and Bamboo.
I made a quick video of the process..with just a tiny bit of talking...The video was so fast I could not keep up except for the beginning and the end:)) #ALWAYSLEARNING

Bright and Pretty Inspired By #55

Hello! There's a new PRETTY photo to inspire you at Inspired By All the Little Things challenge #55.



I was totally inspired by the Oranges in this lovely bouquet and the the succulent looking blooms. For my card today, I stamped some images from a New company in the stamp world called, The Stamp Market. The set is named BLOOMED. Now how could I resist investing in this one, right?
The images in this set are solid, which are my favorite to color with ZIGGYs because the first layer of color is already laid down after stamping.
Here is a photo of the beginnings of my arrangement.

After coloring, I fussy cut the edge from the panel and layered it onto a piece of pattern paper from the Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection
I did brush some distress ink onto the paper to turn it green-ish blue.


Hope this inspires you to play along!
Can't wait to see how you are Inspired By!!
