FUN with Anything Goes Challenge on the Paper Smooches SPARKS Blog!!

Pin It

I'm here to share a Couple Cards for the New Anything Goes Challenge over on the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog!! I have been SO EXCITED about the Ring Trio Die since it was Released and I have SO MANY Ideas for using it!! I've used SEVERAL PS Stamps and Die Sets (PS Green Acres and Uplifters Stamp Sets along with the Ring TrioGreen Acres Icons, and Stitched Dies) to create these FUN takes on a Similar Layout, but using different Sets and I made one into a Shaker Card!! I've used my New Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to Water Color all of my Images on Distress Water Color Paper!! I don't have very many of them though, so I had to use some of my Distress Markers for shading and I'm REALLY HAPPY with how well they work together and how the Colors Blend!! I used some My Mind's Eye Burlap Paper for the Ring Trio Die Frame on my Farm Scene and I LOVE the way it looks!!  This Farmer is SO PROUD of his Family of Animals!! He just CAN'T Help wanting to Talk about them and wanting to show them off to ANYONE who will look at them!! This Card could be used for SO MANY Occasions!! Infact, I think My Dad is going to get it for being such an AMAZING Dad, Grandpa, Role Model, Farmer/Rancher you Name it I LOVE my Dad and I'm SO BLESSED to have him as my Dad and my boys to be able to have him for their Grandpa!! He's BEYOND BRAG WORTHY!!  =)SQUEAL!!
I used Martha Stewart Crafts Coarse Crystal Glitter along with some Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Crystal Clear Sequins and some Mini Blue Iridescent Sequins from my Stash for the Shaker Filler!! The Wiggly Eyes just Finish off the Pelican and I just CAN'T HELP but SMILE thinking about how "YUMMY" he thinks those Fish look!! He's almost Delirious with his thoughts of  how GOOD they'd Taste!!  =) Sometimes I wonder if when you make Scene Cards if EVERYONE Else INVISIONS the SAME Silly Stories in their Minds!!?? I make my Husband and Boys Laugh when I tell them the Stories and I think it makes the Card come to LIFE that much MORE!! =) LOL!!


I hope you LOVE the Inspiration and that you'll stop by the rest of the Paper Smooches SPARKS DT Blogs to see what they have created!!
