SISC47: Anything But a Card!

This week’s StampInsanity Challenge is to make anything but a card. Which is great, because it forced me to make a scrapbook page. Not that I need to be “forced” to scrap…but it certainly takes me longer to make a layout then it does for me to make a card. And I am SOOOOO far behind on my scrapbooking, that I really need to get on it! So, I chose an awesome SI Birthday quote, and made a page of my little girl, Rhiannon.

I know, I know…she’s adorable! ;) The quote says, “Today as we celebrate your Birthday, we celebrate the gift of you to the World!” Sweet right? The colors in her shirt are fantastic, and I just got some new paper pads from my Mom, which matched perfectly!

They are from DCWV. Full of sparkle and totally bright and cheery! Just like Rhiannon (well…most of the time she’s cheery.). I used Lily Pad Glimmer Mist on the sentiment, then inked it and embossed it with glitter. If you click on any of the pictures, you can see them bigger.

I used a couple other embellishments… a sticker, a couple scraps of ribbon…I let the photo and sentiment do most of the work for the page. You likey?

Now please go and visit the rest of the Groovy Gurlz!!! I hope you will play along with us this week. Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
