Inky Impressions - Inspiration post

When I sat down to make my card this week, I started coloring my image in and then decided I wanted to do something different.  I wanted to use something from Inky that usually gets "lost" in our projects.....the Charms! Inky offers so many different charms in the store, most of which coordinates with the images.

So I pulled out my bag (yes I have about a snack baggie of them) and picked out two of them (hard choice).  Now I am heading somewhere with this :)  When I'm not crafting, you can usually find my nose stuck in a book or glued to my kindle; so it's only fitting that I make a bookmark as I always need one :)

so I have added the two charms to the top on jump rings using one of the clasps that are for necklaces/bracelets.  Added four black beads onto a stick pin and attached it to the other end of the ribbon.  Instant bookmark and so easy :)  It would make a great gift for your favorite reader :)

Die Versions - Inspiration post

To make this card sparkle like snow, I used a white glitter paper for my "Let it Snow" die cut and used red, green & white card stock to mat the die cut and the one piece of designer paper.  I added a ribbon that I've been hoarding for a while that looked nice with everything

Mi Ran Jung - Inspiration

I have the privilege to be working with Mi Ran Jung to create some inspiration so she can share with her followers.  I choose "pretty girl" for my first card and went with the red, black & white color combination (Abby said I had use the zebra papers LOL).  I really had fun working with this image and can't wait to share the others I have with you.

A Scrapin' Place - Inspiration

I had fun creating this little card for this week.  I started out wanting to make a window type card front but after I got the four boxes matted and on the card I thought it would be cute to put the one on the top and have it look like a present.  I added bling to all the corners for a little pizzazz.

Opal Manor - Inspiration

I was browsing through the internet/facebook last week can came across Opal Manor.  Opal Manor offers nothing but freebies and after speaking with Annie, I am now a designer for these fabulous images.  My first card for Opal Manor uses "Snowgirl with penguin".  I kept the card simple as I didn't want to take away from the image so all I did was add the die "Snow Much Fun" from Die-Versions for the sentiment.

The Paper Shelter - For Someone Special Challenge

I created this card for Party Time Tuesdays weekly challenge however I forgot the hemp/twine.  I didn't want to "waste" such a cute card so I thought I'd enter it in this week's challenge at The Paper Shelter, the challenge theme is "For Someone Special"

The Stamping Chef Facebook Challenge

The Stamping Chef has changed to monthly Facebook challenges which make it a little bit easier to get something done.  This month we got a cluster image that said "Keep calm and Craft".  I added black chalk to the edges and then matted it in black.  Once it was matted I added some pink glitter glue around the edge of the image.  I am going to place this in the middle of my craft inspiration board that I have hanging up

Simply Betty Facebook Challenge

That time again at Simply Betty's facebook group to have our monthly challenge.  This month's Betty had two amazing images and for the challenge I chose Indian Betty.  The challenge with the images is to use feathers.
