Welcome to another challenge at Inspiration Destination #100
It's always ANYTHING GOES

This is my card using the image called Bear cub... I think he looks like he's saying Hi there..
I really kept this quite simple. I wasn't sure how to color the image. I added some sequins to give more movement to the background. I did use my copic 0 and terry towel for the body of the bear.

A bird sings not because -- Guest Designer for Crafty Boots

Monday August 22, 2016
 
I am a Guest Designer over at Crafty Boots Challenges where the challenge is Anything But A Card..
I was excited to be asked to be a guest designer and of course I loved that it's Anything But A Card.. I like those types of challenges. Thank you Crafty Boots for having me.
I hope you head over to Crafty Boots and enter your card. You could be the next Guest Designer / winner 
 

This is my Anything But A Card project. I needed another journal page for October so this was my chance to make one. When I have my journal I have the month tabs and then the calendar and more pages.. Well right on top of the month tab is where this goes. So when I go to my journal I see the inspiration - fun pages.
I finally used those Tim Holtz crazy birds. I have had them for awhile but seem to never have time to use them. I took my chance this time.  I used water color paper and laid down some inks and spritzed with water then I laid the water color paper in the inks. I dried the paper then laid it gently down in spots till I got the bright colorful background I wanted. I love doing this.. (I also love there are two sides of the paper.. the first one was a muddy mess) After I got what I wanted I dried it. I then die cut the stamped birds and colored them in copics. I was then thinking what sentiment do I want. I looked in my inspirational book (one I write in) and didn't see anything. So went to my stamps and found this sentiment from Verve Stamps. Well it was too small so I went to the computer and printed it out and then cut each word out.  I then added My Favorite Things music notes.  I layered it on some black card stock (to hide the muddy mess on the other side) and laminated the page with my Zyron. I have a hole punch that fits the binders I have so punched it and added to a journal.  I am loving this page and the way it came out.
I hope I have inspired you to make a journal page or some project that is Anything But A Card and head over to Crafty Boots Challenge and play along.
Thank you Crafty Boots

Wedding card #4

Sunday August 21, 2016
 
Ok this is the 4th Wedding / Congratulations card. It took awhile to make this card as every night I seemed to have something going one. I need to bring the cards to work tomorrow so my friend can chose or take all 4 of them. Now maybe if you went back and looked at the other three you could see why I had a hard time choosing which group of papers to use. I did two in cream card stock base and the flowers same cream and two with white card stock base and white flowers. I love all four.
This one is the same as others just different papers and again this one has the embossing folder strip. I love summer weddings.. it's easy to pick colors. 
I love the misti stamping tool. I've made these cards before for my friend and the congratulations wasn't stamped as strong it is on these using the misti and re stamping at least 3 times.  If you haven't bought it yet.. I highly recommend it. I just have the small one and I love the size. I like that you can also stamp your sentiment or image and then if you don't use an embossing ink you can stamp in color of choice and then when you are happy you use versa mark and re stamp again and emboss. It's perfect alignment each time you stamp.  I can see more embossing in my future.. (this is not ink embossed)  I just went through my many many embossing powders and put them in a lot smaller containers and then stamped a word on white and black and them embossed it and stuck it to the top of the lid. This way I have an idea what it looks like for future embossing projects.

Don't give me attitude - Guest Designer at Scrapping 4 fun #72

Friday August 19, 2016
 
Today I am the Guest Designer at Scrapping 4 fun.. This is challenge #72 - Anything goes.
I am so happy to be the GD and thank you for having me.
 
 
This is my card for the Anything goes challenge.  I chose to use one of the crazy birds from Tim Holtz. I found this fun sentiment at Michaels today it's by Dylusions and I just had to use this bird because she has that attitude look and I had her standing on the deflated balloon to give it more of that attitude feel.  The sentiment also came with a stencil so I stamped the lines and circles that are by Club scrap but then took the stencil and added some pink circles, gold circles with ink. In person it looks cool. I used wink of stella on the balloon and her eyes.
