Inspired by all the little Things 40


Hi Friends, Time for another fabulous inspiration from Inspired by all the little Things

I was a little stumped at first but I'm happy with my card. I started out being inspired by the white flower which I made come to life with a Simon Says Stamp set named Ranunculus.  I used the berry-like branches to imitate the photo and used this lilac/pink shade of card stock for the background. I used Distress ink for the background, Milled Lavender.

A Hero Arts sentiment embossed on vellum and some sparkling clear sequins finish it off. 

Our guest, Donna Rudy and the design team have some great cards to share with you so stop on by!

Simon says -Winter Birthday!


Hey Friends, I'm going to keep this short and sweet. I didn't end up using this Lawn Fawn stamp set much at Christmas time but it's perfect for the newest Simon Says Stamp Wed. Challenge-Winter Birthday. I have a little girl in mind to give this to. 

Anyway, I used SSS birch tree window die for the first time, so cute! I also got the snowflake sequins and Hero Arts purple/teal ombre ink pad from SSS. 

I colored the fairies with Copics and added crystal stickles to their wings. The panel behind the die cut is sponged with Tumbled Glass distress ink. It's a shaker card too. 

Well, short and sweet. Time for hubby and I to go to a movie! See ya later!

Inspired by all the little things 39


Hey Friends, how are you this fine day? How about a little Valentine inspiration this week? 
Inspired by all the little things 39 has a fun photo to inspire you. 

I knew I wanted to have a black and white panel on my card and the rest just evolved with the help of a Mojo Monday sketch #475. I used some Lawn Fawn patterned paper for the background and a unknown manuf. scrap for the banner. The hearts are die cut with spellbinder dies. I got the ribbon from Verve and the twine is Darice. 

Since I used this MFT sentiment, I guess this is my husband's card because it doesn't apply to anyone else! 

I hope you come play with us this week. Our guest is Hannelie Bester!

Inspired by all the little Things #38


Hi Friends! It's a brand new year and time to get back to card challenges! 

We sure would like to see you join us at Inspired by all the little Things #38 this week.  It's such a pretty inspiration photo. 

I pulled out a retired stamp set but you can find something similar drawn by Marcella Hawley at Power Poppy Stamps. I colored the image with Copics and cut it out with a MFT stitched circle die. I used an older Sweet Sunday Sketch, found on Pinterest to assemble the card. 

The sentiment is Hero Arts which I heat embossed in detail gold EP along with the edges of the gold mat under the white. A dotted ribbon and enamel hearts finish it off. 

Our guest this week is Broni Holcomb!  Please take a peek over at the blog to see what the design team has shared.

Inspired by all the little Things 37




Hey friends, welcome to week 37 at Inspired by all the little things challenge! It's the last challenge of the year. We'll be back in January. 

Weeks ago I had borrowed my friends Stampin Up house stamp set and heat embossed the houses in white powder on kraft. I die cut a circle to make a snow globe. The bottom part is half of a die cut label, which I stamped with a Simon Says Stamp sentiment. 

I realize my paper choices aren't the best. I had this card mostly done and had a mishap and had to start over with different papers. 

Our guest is Natalie Murdock this week and the rest of the team have some super cards to share. 
Come play with us!

Thanks for visiting.

Inspired by all the little Things #36


Hey Friends, I love this Christmas Truck image this week at Inspired by all the little Things.

I chose to make my Stampendous Truck of Gifts stamped image green instead of red. I just colored it with Copics and cut it out. 

I matted it on some Plaid Lawn Fawn paper and then onto Green Card Stock. Easy Peasy! I added some wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the tree branches. The sentiment is Hero Arts I believe.

Anita Madden is our guest this week. Come on over to the blog and see what the team created!
Thanks for stopping by.

Inspired by all the little Things #35



Hey Friends, It's holiday time, can you believe it? I can't! I have a clean and layered card for you today using the fabulous inspiration from Inspired by all the little Things #35

I love snowmen and I was a little tired of my collection so I bought a digital stamp from "From the Heart Stamps" called Snowman and Holly Chicks.I colored him with Copics and added white gel pen polka dots to his hat just like the photo.

 The rest of the card is simply some Echo Park paper layered up with the colored image. I added some MFT die cut snowflakes and some ribbon. My grandson was visiting when I was finishing this and I got distracted and forgot a sentiment! Maybe I can add it later. :) 

I hope you are inspired by the photo and come join us this week.
