Cheerful Snails

 Today I am using an Inspired By photo inspiration.  Now the only thing I think of with a snail is slow or sluggish...which I am this week because it is just hours before the card has to be submitted and I just finished it.

 Inspired By

I found this great panel in a paper book.  Adding some googly eyes and splatters to my snail shells, the goofy snails look CHEERFUL and ADORABLE!


Thanks for stopping by!  Because these cheerful snail are so beautiful, I am also playing along with:

On The CASE Of Chris



 stamp

Today I am on the CASE of Chris!  I love the background she created.  The stenciled area on top of that yellow is so pretty.  Then add in the black and the whole card pops!

\

I went with the For The Birds die cut and this fantastic sentiment from STAMPlorations.

Frame It

Swimming by to wish you a happy birthday!  Using Simon Says frame it inspiration, the happy was die cut from a piece of paper.  It was then turned into a shaker word.

The underwater scene was made with a fish and his scuba mask.  Googly eyes had to be added!  The inside of the card has the word birthday loaded with bubbles.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

On The Case Of Marie





 stamp

Today I am on the CASE of Marie.  I love the vibrant colors with the black set against it.



So I tried the dripping technique and it did not work so well for me.  I patiently took a paint bursh out with my watercolors and painted on the color.  I started with yellow, then orange and finished with red.  After drying, the palm trees were stamped with black ink and the die cut is one from the $5 birthday bash surprise bags!

On The Case Of Stephanie

 stamp

Today I am on the CASE of Stephanie.  I love the clean look of this card and anytime I can use a die cut, I am in!


I matched Hello Sunshine with a sun ray and some mixed media grunge.



Then I needed a card for a graduate going off on his new journey.  I thought "Life is good" is the perfect send off into his new post graduation journey.

Under The Sea

Just look at the world around ypu
Right here on the ocean floor
                                         Such wonderful things surround you
                                             What more is you lookin' for?
                                            Under the sea, under the sea!

It is tag shaker time under the sea!  The fish was stamped and colored.  A few googly eyes were added with some sequins and a treasure.  I cannot find it but it is a gold star!  On the outside of the shaker, the sand, coral and seaweed were stamped.  Then the bubbles were stenciled on.  Some patterned paper and riboon finish off the tag!

Summer On The Porch

When I think of summer on the porch, I think of sitting in a comfortable chair, the breeze and the sun taking turns hitting my skin, chatting with friends and drinking lemonade or iced tea.  Here is the inspiration for today's card.


 Inspired by

I tried to create wicker with an embossing folder.  There is a fern hanging at the top of the card by the chains of the basket.  The flowers are outlined in black and have white petals with a yellow center.  The yellow blaanket is the paper in between the card sections and there is a hint of the black and white stripe item.  The ice and pitcher have glaze to make them shiny and wet looking.  This is how summer on the porch looks to me!




Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy time on your porrch this summer!
