REMINDER FOR CROP STOP LINKY PARTY #19 ~ ANYTHING GOES

Hello and welcome! I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer for the CropStop Blog this month. For this card, I used products that I won in a recent CropStop challenge that were sent to me from the CropStop Store; a gorgeous 5x7 embossing folder with an open slit in the middle at the top (which allows for embossing long continuous strips of paper in addition to the regular embossing) AND some beautiful ribbon that I turned into tiny rosettes with the help of some Glubers. 

Here's my shaker card:

CARD RECIPE:
5x7 Card Base, plus 5x7 piece of card stock, 5x7 sheet of acetate, foam tape & confetti for shaker
Embossing Folder: Couture Creations "Chiaro"
Die Cut with: Memory Box "Stitched Heart Layers"
My Favorite Things Sentiment stamped with: Ranger "Jet Black Archival Ink"
Embellished with: Ribbon that was gathered and wrapped in a circular pattern on Glubers (with added buttons from stash) and I also added some Self Adhesive Pearls around the hearts and in the circles.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

LET'S PARTY ~ ANIMAL PARADE

Here's another image I colored for the challenge. It's a wood block stamp from Penny Black but the only identifying mark on it is the number 4137K. I had to do an online search to find it's name, "Let's Party".  I stamped this on Strathmore Bristol paper with Versa Fine "Onyx Black" ink and colored it in with Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Water Brush.


This will soon be made into a card, but I wanted to post a picture of the coloring for the daily challenge. At the end of the challenge, I will post photos of the cards made with these images so you get a chance to see the finished products.

BLESSED ~ BIBLE JOURNALING PAGE

Hello and welcome! Today I am sharing something that I colored over two days of the coloring challenge. I didn't have the heart to post a partially colored picture yesterday, so I waited until today to post it complete. I colored this in my new Bible with Prismacolor pencils.


It's called My Creative Bible and I found it on Amazon. It is filled with beautiful illustrations and Bible verses for you to color in the headers and margins and has a gorgeous wipe clean cover.


I'm including a photo because I love it and want to share it. I am not an affiliate. There are no links and I will not make any money from sharing this with you. I just really like this Bible and thought you might too.


CARD RECIPE:

PLANNING WITH MY MONTHLY HERO

When it comes to planning with planners I've learned two things:
1. If it's pretty, I'm more likely to use it.
2. If I took the time to make it pretty, I WILL use it.


With that in mind, I used the stamps from the July Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts to decorate my planner for next week. I stamped the images with Hero Arts inks and colored them in with Prismacolor Pencils.


Then I added some of my Hero Arts Planner stamps. I'll fill in the rest of the calendar this weekend.


SUPPLIES USED:
Stamps: Hero Arts "July Monthly Hero", "Kelly's Food Planner", "Kelly's Work Planner", "Kelly's Occasion Planner"; Sweet Stamp Shop "Plan Work"
Hero Arts Ink: "Forever Green", "Green Hills", "Orange Soda", "Black", "Ombre Dolphin"
Prismacolor Pencils: PC103, PC1025, PC109, PC912, PC1090, PC927, PC1023, PC949
DAY TEN
