June Inspiration by Judy

It's Judy here sharing a little inspiration!

I created an altered notebook/journal using

I started by choosing some card stocks and 
designer papers I liked.

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and fussy cut.
Then I covered the front, back and binding of a 
composition book with the papers. I added some ribbon
where the binding met the covers.

 I attached ribbon across the front and back covers to form a tie.
Next I decided on a layout using a matted doily and rectangle.

I popped the fairy image on the background,
added a glittered chipboard title and some gems to finish.

I hope you'll check out this stamps along with
 the others available at

Victorias June Inspiration Card using Summer BBQ

Hi. It's Victoria stopping by today. I'm here today to share my inspiration card. I decided to use the Cute As A Button Progressive Facebook Challenge image called Summer BBQ. He is also a new release image. I thought he'd make a perfect Father's Day card. If you like this guy there are tons of awesome digital stamps over at the Cute As A Button Store. Including the perfect girl image to go with this guy called Pebbles.

I've coloured him using Touch Five Markers and Pencils. The background is Peachy Keen stamped bones that I coloured with white Acrylic Paint. I added a Father's Day sentiment and string to finish this card.

I hope that you can join in the fun with the Progressive Challenge on the Cute As A Button Facebook Group. We'd love it if you could stop by and see the current challenges going on at the Cute As A Button Challeng Blog.

Thank you for stopping by today.

The Sleepover

 A closer look at the cute stamp
 The inside of my card.
What I love most about Cute As A Button 
Stamps is you can find one for any occasion! I recently stayed with a dear friends of mine so I could attend the Scrapbook Expo in Puyallup, Washington. It is a fun filled time and my friends make sure I have a good time no matter what. I wanted to make a thank you card for them and this is what I came up with. If you have not tried Cute As A Button Stamps I hope this card will inspire you to do so. I hope everyone is having a fun time during these summer months and I hope you are taking time to craft.

Congrats Graduate

I love this Graduate digi stamp!  I had to make a quick card for my daughter's step sister, and the fun thing about stamps is, you do not HAVE to use the entire image.  So, I just used the top half so she would fit int he circle.  Her school colors are black, gold and purple.  I used a gold card base and then used just a touch of purle and black.  Using my CTMH cardstock I embossed and sanded the purple.  I used my round dies to cut the circles.  I added some gold gems and some fancy gems and topped the entire thing off with some flowers, another flourish die and a black bow.  Oh, and I used the word die.  This took me 15 minutes to make.  Gotta love the CAS quick cards!

Thanks for looking!
