Clearly It's Time to Hop!

Join in on the terrific inspiration surrounding this amazing Blog hop.  So much talent all in one place.  Grab your coffee and get comfy!  Make sure and comment as you hop along for your chances to WIN WIN WIN!

The album I created using my ClearScraps 8x8 is with a bird theme.  I have put links for the different items along the way just incase you want to find them in the store at Stampendous.  These are some of my favorite images as I love birds and nature.  I hope you enjoy!

"Birds of a Feather"

I inked the edges of the acrylic front page with opaque StazOn ink pad baby blue, and decorated the front with flowers and bling.  I embossed using Bark embossing powder onto acetate Stampendous's  Nest Egg Perfectly Clear set and cut out the eggs.  I inked the reverse side of the eggs using the opaque baby blue stazon ink pad as well.  Of course adding ribbons flowers and pearls.  To top off the front cover I added Steel Blue Crushed Glass Glitter and Chiffon Color Fragments using liquid glue.

The next page has Stampendous Jumbo Cling Songbird embossed on acetate and colored on the reverse again with Stazon.

I embossed once again the Stampendous Bird Manor onto card stock and cut it out.  after popping it up I added the Steel Blue Crushed Glass Glitter and the Chiffon Color Fragments.  This was done on the second clear acrylic page with the edges inked with the Stazon.

I embossed Cling Vintage Birdcage and cut it out and underneath the flowers added the Steel Blue glass glitter and Chiffon fragments

(This little bird is made with the Cling Lone Bird stamp)

Here are all the list and links in one spot for easy access.

Bits and Pieces

I have so much to do, and have been busy busy busy.  I so needed a break.  So I gave myself one.   I colored up this new image I obtained from Copic Markers Europe who is celebrating their birthday.  I can't enter to win but I sure can play along.  I am so thrilled to have gotten this image created from Saturated Canary, my newest MOST favorite.  Here she is in bits and pieces.  I will post the card  and colors when I find time to finish her.

Party Animal

I fell in love with this image when I saw it.  Maybe its the shoe.  I am totally a shoe gal although you will mostly see me in my boots or my tennis.   With my busy schedule I rarely have time for my perty shoes.  So I just look at them.  I colored up this card for Crafters Companion color challenge.  I used Stampendous glitter for the shoe and adhered it with double sided tape.  Colored up the kitty and textured her and added a bow...super fun stuff!

The image can be purchased from Crafters Companion and you can get something entered into the challenge HERE

Shadow Inspiration

Notice the shadows behind the grass and the cast shadow on the water from the dragonflies.  How about the little color pop in the water from the shadow of the flowers.  Small details add amazing results.  You can try it too.  The image can be purchased HERE at Make It Crafty.  I have also posted most the colors used on the MIC Store Blog HERE
