It’s my pleasure to host the first Inspiration Challenge of June (IC757)! And such an inspiring site we have w/ Design Pool & their Pinterest Boards. THIS is the picture that inspired my card. 

I have a card today w/ most of the fish going one way & the one fish going the other. Doesn’t seem to bother him…he’s smiling! I think that’s probably me, lol. My mom always said I have a mind of my own & growing up, in order to get me to do something, she had to make me think it was my idea. Anyway, for my scene, I stamped the background fish w/ teal ink onto some turquoise paper that had been spritzed w/ a little bleach. I added just a touch of color to the fish. The main character was was stamped on white & fussy cut. I added a little stickles to him & to the stamped bubbles. The porthole was die cut (yay! I found a die that fit!). On the teal bg, I embossed it w/ a wave folder & some of it cracked, revealing the white core. So I just went w/ it & sanded off some of the high points to reveal the white. 

The greeting was split w/ half on the front & the rest inside. Below it are the Copics I used.

Mittens Christmas cu 07050

Today’s Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast (IC510) is a Pinterest Board full of beautiful drinks. I was really inspired by THIS picture Audrie picked & I tried to find it on the board but gave up after the first couple of thousand pictures, lol. I think that board has no end! I was also inspired by a card I saw who knows how long ago or where that had these cute little mittens & crimped kraft paper.

Since it’s all about drinks, it’s appropriate that I had one of those coffee cup wrappers & used it for my crimped layer.  I stamped the snowflakes & splatter on a white front using corduroy distress ink then attached the card board. The mittens were a little trickier..I have a mitten punch, but it was nowhere near big enough. I punched 2 mittens out of a piece of scrap kraft c/s, put them on the copier & blew them up about 200% then cut those out to use as templates for my white mittens w/ kraft colored cuffs. Ahhh…perfect size! I also stamped the cuffs w/ the woven plaid border & embossed a snowflake on each mitten before adding them & some twine to join them.

The greeting was stamped w/ sepia Versafine & I used a couple of earth tone Tombow markers to color. The bottom was cut w/ a die & I hand cut around the top. Here’s a look at the inside.  Mittens Christmas inside 07052

Dads Pegboard cu 06420

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge(WT536) is Get Grungy! I think a tool pegboard would be grungy enough, but I also grunged up background quite a bit.
Dads Pegboard 06415
To make the large bg, I glued some heavy duty aluminum foil to card stock & embossed it. I covered the entire piece with white acrylic paint & after it dried, I sponged on some Distress inks then sanded some areas down. The pegboard was die cut out of dp & the edges were sponged before I attached all the tools. I also used foil covered c/s for the tool heads. A couple of screw head brads were attached to the greeting.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
