July Inspiration by Judy

Hi all!
It's Judy here sharing my inspiration post for this month!

I thought it would make a quick and easy
fun birthday card appropriate for a boy
and chose this Juggling Clown digital stamp to use.

After coloring the image with pencil colors,
I gathered  a blank 5x6 1/2 in. card base, some papers and dazzles stickers.

I matted the solid card stock on the card base,
the image and some rectangles cut with my DP.

I arranged the pieces on the card base.

Added Dazzles banner, balloons and sentiment.
And I have a finished product!

Inspiration by Nicky

Here is my inspiration for you today. I hope you all like it :)

 I made this card using the 'Henrietta Hippo - Bubble Bath' image from Cute As A Button. Find it at the shop link below.

Here are some step by step instructions of how I made the card.

I coloured the image using the following Promarkers and Copics:

Bath - Walnut and W7
Soap - Vanilla
Bubbles - B60
Henrietta Hippo - Caramel, Lipstick Red and Ivory
Hair wrap - YR24 and Yellow

I added a little bit of the clear wink of stella pen onto the bubbles to add a little sparkle.I cut the image to a suitable size to fit the image. I used a 6.5 x 5" card blank and wrapped a piece of matching ribbon around an A6 piece of brown card, the attached it to the card blank using double sided tape. I then mounted the digi image on to the card using foam tape. I added a Scrappers Delights sentiment to the middle of the card and added gems on each side of the card to finish.

Here are some links for you:

A Little Birdie Told Me

This image is called "A Bird In My Hair".  She totally makes me think of the movie My Fair Lady.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut her out.  I colored her with chalk (hair, bird, eggs, nest, dress, shawl), ink (skin) and some glitter gel pen (eyes and lips).  I added some Crystal Stickles to her dress and a little on the bird in her hair.  I added some Glossy Accents on her eyes to make them pop.  My final touch was the gem in her ear for her earring.

  I used a pre-cut card pack that was given to me over at Craft Warehouse in Meridian, Idaho when I took a class there.  So, the paper, doily, sequins floss and the gold flourish were all in that packet.  The banner on top was from a Chalk Studio 2 Chipboard Elements set.  The ceramic bird is from a fun little packet of birds I got with the toy house stuff (where they have all the little people, wooden houses, and accessories).  I used Pop Dots to place the image onto the card and Glossy Accents to place the bird on the card.
