Inspired by all the little things #48



Hey Friends, Welcome to Inspired by all the little things challenge # 48. Glad you stopped by.

 This week we have a pretty sky photo inspiration that you can interpret however you'd like. I chose to do a galaxy background with sponged Distress Ink.

 After watching a few You Tube videos I gave it a try. I used some yellows and purples and finished the edges in Chipped Sapphire.

Then I splatted with water and with Copic White. Some vellum clouds were cut with Lawn Fawn Clouds border dies and I white heat embossed the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Believe Stamp. 

Leanne Elliott is our guest this week. I hope you join the design team and I by making a card for yourself!

Inspired by all the little things #47


Hi Friends, I'm here to share this week's Inspired by all the little things Challenge #47! We have an interesting rainbow photo with a musical flair if you choose to be inspired by that. I pulled out my Tweet, Tweet stamp set by Avery Elle. 

It gave me the opportunity to use lots of colors and had some cute little music notes as well. The sentiment on the inside says "a little birdie told me it was your birthday". Too cute!

I colored the birds and tiki-style umbrella with Copics and cut out with the matching dies. A hill was created by sponging some Twisted Citron ink with a curved mask. I then set the panel on a black card base and added twine. I added glossy accents to the birdie's eyes!

Come visit the blog, say hello to our guest, Michelle Lupton and join in the fun. 
Hugs, Kim

Inspired by all the little things 46



Hey Friends, It's time for Inspired by all the little Things Challenge 46! I used Hero Arts "Stamp your own succulents" set for my terrarium. I stamped and water colored my plants first, waited until fully dry and gold heat embossed the planter over it. 

Using Freshly Made Sketches 277, I assembled my card using patterned paper, water color paper, card stock and enamel dots. I felt the clean and simple layout reinforced the "I miss you" sentiment, which is from another Hero Arts set, Year round sentiments. After I was done, I realized I could have made some splatters for interest but it was too late!

Inspired by all the little Things 45





Hi Friends, Today I have a card for Inspired by all the little things #45. As you see we have a coffee theme this week and I used my Simon Says Stamp February card kit and adorable Doodlebug Products for my card. 

It was challenging to come up with a card design that hasn't already been made. Everyone has been making the cutest cards with this kit. 
I colored up the cup with Copics and paper pieced sleeve on the cup. I stamped the sentiment and added stickers and enamel dots. 

Mary Beth Lopez is our guest this week. Come on by and see what the she and the team have to share.

Inspired by 44


Hey Friends, February is rolling right along. Time for another Inspired by all the little things challenge. We're up to #44. Do you like Ferris Wheels? I do unless there are gigantic.

 I colored up this cute Lawn Fawn Ferris wheel with Zigs markers, fussy cut out and placed it on a distress ink sponged panel. I used a grass punch to make the grass which was also distress inked with Mowed Lawn. How appropriate! 

The ticket stamp comes with the same set and was stamped on the kraft card base with Momento Lady Bug ink. Each little car on the wheel has a tiny red gem on it and one in the middle. Nice and simple for quick mailing.

Come on by the blog and visit our guest Becca Whitman and the rest of the team this week!
Hugs, Kim

Simon "Cute" Challenge


I'm playing in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge today. The challenge is "Cute". To me, nothing says cute like Lawn Fawn! This set is called Sweet Smiles. I love the faces.
I water colored the gumball machine and gum balls with Zig markers. I copic-colored the blue glass part and used a white gel pen to make the highlight. It was an experiment. 
I sponged on 3 colors of distress inks in an ombre style and dropped water on it. You know how it's done!
I intended to link to more challenges but ran out of time. Tootles.

Come and get it Challenge Love is in the air.

Inspired by all the little Things 43


Hey Friends, I'm loving this inspiration photo this week at Inspired by all the little Things 43. Home decorating is a passion of mine so I love pics of home decor. 

I chose to take the pink flowers, the fabulous black and white print and some silver from the photo for this week's card. I masked the beautiful WPlus9 Ranunculous with a Lawn Fawn jar stamp. The stems are from yet another set. I water colored the image with Zig markers and a water brush. I heat embossed (with Versafine Black Onyx and clear power)  the black sentiment from a SSS stamp designed by Kristina Werner. 

I set that on a panel on PTI patterned paper and wrapped some silver twine, made a separate bow from the same, and added a black enamel dot. That panel was set on a dark pink A2 card base. Oh, and of course PPP sparkling clear sequins! 

Michele Ferguson is our guest this week! You must go over to the blog and see her take on the challenge as well as the other wonderful cards from the team. 
Hugs, Kim
