Inspired by all the little Things #66

Hi Friends, Welcome to Inspired by all the little Things #66! Isn't that flower beautiful in the inspiration photo? 
I was inspired by the shape of the flower. The shape of my flowers from the Wplus9 Beautiful Bouquet-Mums set is similar but that's were the similarity ends. I went with a different pink tone using zig brush markers to color my image. I made this several weeks ago and thus the bright almost summer colors. 
After heat embossing in white and coloring, I die cut the focal piece with the SSS Scalloped Border die. I then layered it over the polka dot paper and stamped the sentiment with SSS Thoughtful Messages. Sequins from a variety of manufacturers finish it off.

Merry Monday 258

Hey Friends, I broke out my Prisma Pencils and colored up these cute critters from Avery Elle (Snow much fun). We are to use a penguin on our card for Merry Monday 258. I put together a simple mail-able card to start my stash of Holiday cards. I'm way behind!!
I hand drew the little snow banks and snow flakes, cut the panel out with Avery Elle borders dies and popped it up on foam tape. The background paper is from 6x6 Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa, set on a card base of PTI Aqua Mist Card Stock. 
Gotta cut this short and I'm hoping I didn't miss the link-up deadline!
See you soon!

Inspired by all the little Things #65

Hi Friends, We've got challenge #65 for you this week at Inspired by all the little Things. The mushrooms and the forest inspired me to use my SSS Birch tree diecut and Lawn Fawn's Gleeful Gardens stamps and dies. This card was fun!

I diecut the background and sponged on distress ink in an ombre style, then splashed with water. I colored by images with Copics and adhered to the bottom, except for the cute bird. I stamped a sentiment from the set and tied on some Lawn Fawn natural and gold bakers twine.

PS: My Mom came up for a visit in late august and has been in the hospital ever since. I've been absent from blogging except for these weekly posts. I hope to get back to some more card making soon.

Inspired by all the little Things #64

Hi Friends, Welcome to #64 of Inspired by all the little Things. I was a little bit challenged by the inspiration photo so I went pretty literal. I love the colors tho! I broke out my Lawn Fawn Jar stamps and dies to create the jars. I added copper embossing powder to look like the photo. 
For the flowers I used Wplus9 stamps and dies, called Southern Summer Florals 2 for the flowers stamped with Momento Pear Tart. The background was ink-smooshed with Peacock Feathers distress ink. The sentiments are from SSS. 

Our guest this week is Shannon Jaramillo. Being on this design team allows me to meet crafters I would not have known and I love that!

Inspired by all the little Things #63

Hey Friends, We're baaaacck! Back from summer break and ready to share some inspiration with you. For #63 at Inspired by all the little things we have a pretty coral and mint photo. 

I choose to pull out a Penny Black Floral set and stamped it with Hero Arts Cantelope and Mint ink. I stamped  the Simon Says Stamp sentiment (Thoughtful Messages) in Desert Sand. 

Using Pebble's DIY Home patterned paper I put the card together and added gold enamel dots.
