Victoria's April Inspiration Card using Sitting Pretty

Hello! It's Victoria here stopping by to share my inspiration post for this month. I've created this using a Cute As A Button image called Sitting Pretty. I love this image so much. More stunning images can be found at the Cute As A Button Store.


I've coloured her with Touch Five Markers and Pencils. I've put diamond glaze on her eyes and lips to make them super shiny. I coloured the background with Distress Inks which I've embossed. I die cut the swirls and used a punch cutter for the mini flowers. I have computer generated the sentiment myself. I hope you like my card.

We'd love it if you could stop by and see the current challenges going on at the Cute As A Button Challenge Blog and a Progressive Challenge on the Cute As A Button Facebook Group.

Karen's Inspiration Post - Combining images

Today I want to share a card with you that I made using two totally different images from Fracesca's store.  I used Hosanna Joshua and Cuddly Busty Buttons for this card.  Joshua was intended to be used for the current Easter Challenge, Buttons was intended to be a summer image, however my first thought when I saw Joshua was "he'd be cute holding that frond over a sun bathing beauty", so, that is what I did with him.  She was colored using glitter gel pens, he was colored using Stampin' write markers.  I kept it pretty CAS since the two images combined were busy enough (in my opinion).  I simply added some gems that I thought brought out the dots in her hat.

I'd love to see how you can combine two totally different images and make them work!

Peekaboo Slider Card With Progressive Freebie Image

My inspiration card this month was created using this month's progressive Freebie image.  I decided I wanted to try making a peekaboo slider card.  I've seen this one done a few times and love how it works.  I followed Dawn's directions on her Youtube tutorial.  Due to the fact that I don't have the right punches, I had to substitute for a round die.  I cut all three circles at the same time.  Since I use only digital images and sentiments I had to adjust for that as well.

I colored our sweet Flamenco Dancer using chalks, gel pens and promarker.  I added some fabric flowers, paper flowers, butterflies, ribbon, and lots of gems.  The age sentiment is from Create With TLC, The happy birthday sentiment is mine.

Victoria's Febuary Inspiration Post using High Stakes

Hello!! It's Victoria here I'm stopping by to share my inspiration post. I've created this using  Cute As A Button's image called High Stakes. This image is one of may animal images that can be found at the Cute As A Button Store. Perfect for a good luck card but I've made it into a guys birthday card to show you it's versatility.

I've coloured it Spectrum Noir Markers and Pencils. I cropped out extra chips within the image coloured and fussy cut them out to use as embellishments. I die cut some card shapes and added playing card details. With one of the playing card that I made I accordion folded it and put a loom band in the middle. I then opened it up and stuck it down to create a handmade bow. The sentiment is from a From The Heart digital stamp. I hope you like my card.

We'd love it if you could stop by and see the current challenges going on at the Cute As A Button Challenge Blog and a Progressive Challenge on the Cute As A Button Facebook Group.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post.

Happy crafting everyone.

Inspiration for February! By Patty Chapman



Good-morning! It's Patty here in cold, snowy and flooding Idaho. I thought I would think about something besides the weather and share a little inspiration with you.  I used "Polish Best Friends" for my card. I framed her with a pretty die and some cute paper flowers. I added some glitter glue to my flowers to give them a bit of sparkle. Love that sparkle! Don't you? 
Have a great day and enjoy your day by taking some time to craft!

21st Birthday Creation

For this fun creation I used We Are ONE Body Ladybug Fairy.  I saw this awesome video on how to make this Twist & Pop-Up card and had to give it a try.



I made this card for my boyfriend's Niece's 21st birthday.  I asked what he thought she would like and I was told she liked bright colors with a dark base.  Then he gave me a list of colors.  I think I managed every color he said in this one.  I colored the image using colored pencil then used some Stickle and Glossy Accents.  I added some gems, lace, ribbon, and roses.   On the inside I created my own sentiment and used a butterfly punch and some gems for the other three squares.  Be sure to watch the video, it is very detailed on how to put these together well!




Thanks for looking!  Hope you love it!  Be sure to check my blog if you like the sentiment, I will be giving it away there as I do most of my sentiments.

January Inspiration by Judy





Hello!
It's Judy here sharing a little inspiration!

I created an altered notebook using


I started by coloring the image with Prismacolor pencils 
& gels pens and fussy cutting. Next I pulled out a notebook, 
chose papers that would coordinate well with the image
 and a Fishers template to cut  frame.

I added some embossing to the frame with a 
Cuttlebug border embossing folder.

 I added DCWV DP to the notebook cover.


                                 

I glued ribbon to the cover, in order to tie the notebook shut,
and added the frame on top


Next I added the image to the frame.
The sentiment was computer generated and stamping was added
to frame the sentiment before die cutting with a
stamp and die from Hot Off the Press.
I also added some stickles to the flower on the mask.

To finish I added some feathers behind the image.

Here's a closeup
