Many miles apart..... Guest Designer at Crop Stop

Wednesday September 21, 2016
 
I am the guest designer at Crop Stop Challenge #20 and the theme is ANYTHING GOES
Thank you Crop Stop for having me for the month of September. It's been fun creating a card for this challenge.
 

This is my card using a lot of the products that Crop Stop carries. I used the Clovis house die, My favorite things sentiment, Cuttlebug embossing folder and Ranger inks... I also used Simon Says heart dies, and Taylored Expressions fence. The papers are scraps and my cloud template.
This was a fun card creating a little neighborhood scene. These houses are just too cute. I added the little hearts to go with the sentiment. I embossed the back green hill to give texture and more interest. I would love to live in this neighborhood--- if the houses weren't so close.. Living in the country I love the wide open spaces.. But I love this card.
I am sure you have some products that Crop Stop carries so I hope you play along with the challenge. Thank you Crop Stop.

Welcome to another challenge at Inspiration Destination #104

This is my card using the image called Time is running out.  That is why I chose this sentiment from Tech. Tuesday. It went perfect with the image. I used a new embossing folder and took some liquid silver ink from Stampin up and ran a soft brush of it over the embossed area. I colored her with copics.

Live your life in Color - Inspiration Destination #104

Wednesday September 21, 2016
 
Welcome to another challenge week at Inspiration Destination.. This is challenge #104 and as always it's ANYTHING GOES
 

Our sponsor for this card is Karleigh Sue
 

 
This cat is called El Gato Dia Des Les Muertos..I guess it's best it's not a dog cause I don't know how I would call a dog with that long name.. I don't have a cat.. do you call cats in or do they just come in when they are good and ready..
I wasn't sure how to color this cutie but started with a light warm gray.. then did the other colors and when it was done I wasn't liking the lighter gray so I went two warm grays up and I like it better. I have this awesome sentiment that went perfect with the image from Reverse Confetti.. I used the color letters from a die from Lil Inker.. colored them with copics.. I also added liquid pearls to the dots.. gives a nice look in person.. I also used two colors when I stamped the sentiment I used blue then just a little offset I added green.  I felt I needed to add more but wasn't sure what.. There is so much going on with the cat that adding sequins or flowers or??? would of been too much.. What do you think?
 
I hope you play along at Inspiration Destination.. it's ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES
