August Inspiration by Judy

Hi all!

It's Judy here
sharing an altered notebook I created using

I gathered my materials.
A Composition Notebook
Solid card stock
Autumn themed DP
The image which I colored with pencils

Next, I covered the notebook cover with the card stock & DP.

I fussy cut the image and gathered some embellishments.,
3 leaf shaped buttons from my stash
Lawn Fawn wood word (Story)
A strip of card stock

I adhered the embellishments above and ended up adding
some washi tape on the top on bottom of the card stock strip
and thought a little something else was needed, so added sequins.
Finished product

Tulips Tulips.. Tulips everywhere !!

I'm running a little late this month, but I have this new Inspiration card to show you.  I found this  cute tulip themed cut file and it was perfect to pair with this image on an acetate card. I have been wanting to play with the new acetate sheets I bought.

I cut a second file and made the matching envelope.

This is Wooden Shoes  I hope you like  my new project.  More details can be found on my  blog for anyone interested.

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

 I made this card using the 'Sew Cute' image from Cute As A Button. Find it at the link below. 

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

I coloured the image using a mix of Promarkers and Copics:

I cut the image out to a nice size and found some colourful matching paper. I mounted it onto a 5x5" card blanka nd added the image using foam tape. I added a sentiment by Scrapper's Delights usinf foam tape too. I added gems to match in the corners.

August Inspiration by Margaret

It is my turn to do an inspiration post for Cute as a Button
My eyes are bad today so I have made a digital card with a precoloured image.
I have used 2 papers from Lozzy's Apple and Grape paper set and one paper from Lozzy's Candy Crush Delight set.  which I have layered on top of each other.  Added plain green paper, pink paper and Cute as a Button precoloured digi stamp My New Beats.  (You can also buy this digi stamp as a black and white stamp for you to colour).  Added digital ribbon and bow.

This is a close up of the sentiment

I followed the sketch 95 at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 (I rotated sketch to the right)

Nurse Gen

This is my inspirational card; I have a friend who is almost done with nursing school who is starting a new job soon.  I thought I'd make her this card using Nurse Genevieve-Asian.  I added a bunch of string gems, a heart gem, a nurse button and a ribbon.  The image was colored using chalk and ink.  I used my fun crimper on the solid light blue paper, turned the background into a banner and added the sentiment and accessories from the set.
