Inspired by all the little things 80


Hi Friends, Inspired by all the little things #80 is now open. What a pretty color palette! 
I was drawn to the gold Hello word and the pink and aqua colors. 
I started with a Simon Says Stamp set, Hello Beautiful! and I embossed with gold EP. I cut it out with a SSS stitched circle die and layered it on top of a bunch of pretty patterned paper. The gold mat is a paper from Recollections. I added a few sequins and some twine.

Inspired by all the little things 79






































Hey Friends, Inspired by all the little things Challenge 79 is open today. We hope you come joins for the cute inspiration. 
Love this Simon Says Stamp bicycle stamp (Beautiful Ride). I stamped and colored with Copics and cut it out with matching dies. I highlighted the coloring with a white gelly roll pen. Isn't the dog precious? I stenciled some Antique Linen ink on a kraft background for a makeshift wall and stamped another Simon says stamp (Hello Beautiful) sentiment on top.  A piece of bakers twine finishes it off. 
This week's guest is Dana Seymour. Valentine's Day will be here before you know it! Come make a card with us.

Inspired by all the little things #78



Hey Friends, It's time for another Inspired by all the little things Challenge. It's #78 and don't forget we went to an every 2 weeks format to give you more time to join us!

I was inspired by the hearts and quartrefoil design on the cookies. I had an embossing folder with the same pattern so I used that for the background. The hearts were die cut with Spellbinder hearts and scallopped hearts dies.
I used Pebbles "Forever My Always" paper from the SSS January card kit and a Simon stamp set from last year. CAS for a change.

Our guest is Linda Snodgrass, she's with us for the month! Head over to the blog and see all the great inspiration!

Inspired by all the little things #77


Hi all! Happy New Year! We're back to our challenges at Inspired by all the little Things. We're changing the format somewhat and are going to every 2 weeks now. 
We've got a cute inspiration for you. Interpret it how ever you'd like! My "little thing", in other words what I took from the inspiration, was the critters! 

My Lawn Fawn Party Animals are ready for a birthday party. Sheesh, I had to re-do a few of the animals due to rusty Copic coloring. I hadn't picked them up in weeks and it showed. 
After layering this on some patterned paper I cut a banner with the Lawn Fawn banner stamp and dies. I added Glossy Accents to the fox's party hat and gift. You can't tell I stuck my finger in it as usual! Ha. 
Our Guest for the month is Linda Snodgrass. Come on by and join us.

Inspired by all the little things 76


Hey Friends, It's time for Inspired by all the little things #76. This inspiration photo is so festive! I was going to create a New years Eve card but I really need birthday cards so that's what I chose. 

I started out with some My Minds Eye papers from a SSS card kit last year. I love the gold foiling on it. I inked up another Simon Says Stamp Birthday sentiment and stamped it on a square panel. I fussed for hours (not really! ha!) to get some tails for the balloons tied on to them but gave up. A few gold stars finished it up.

Our guest this week is Joanne James from The Crafty Owl. Stop by the blog and check it out!

This is our last challenge for the year but we'll see you in January!
Merry Everything!

Inspired by all the little Things 75





Hey Friends, Welcome to Inspired by all the little things #75. I love this pretty image and I love to ice skate, although I haven't done it lately. I had a retired stamp that would have been perfect for this challenge but decided to take this stamp set out. 

The moose skating is adorable! It's Avery Elle "snow much fun" stamps and dies. 

I colored the images with Copics and die cut out. I sponged some distress ink to create a scene and layered everything on, including some pom poms for snowballs. A googly eye adds some fun!

Our guest this week is Bobby Hagen.  Stop on by and join us this week!

Inspired by all the little things 74


Hey Friends, the countdown to the holidays is ON! 

This week at Inspired by all the little Things #74 we have a pretty inspiration for you. I choose to add some color this week but kept the star shape and sentiment! 

I merely die cut a Spellbinder star die from red card stock and heat embossed the Simon says Stamp "Merry and Bright" with white powder. I punch a small hole and added some Twinery bakers twine. I set the star on some pretty gray bokeh paper which was matted on SSS dark gray CS.

Our guest this week is Maria Fischer. Stop by the blog and see what's cooking. And play along too!
