Color Throwdown #435 - Happy Fishes

Color Throwdown Challenge #435
 Come play with us in this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #435.
Don't these colors just make you smile?
I immediately wanted to use this fun set That Bites from Avery Elle and matching dies. I knew the colors would work perfect for these fish and water. How cute are these fishes?! So I had some Distress Oxide Ink fun.  I am learning what these inks can do, but I must say they sponge onto my card like a dream.  So I started by sponging on my Distress Oxide Broken China ink using Ranger Mini Ink Blending tool.  Then I used the TH misting bottle and pulled the trigger half way to get my drops then I dabbed with a paper towel. I colored and cut out my  fish. I arranged them the way I wanted and ran each back through my cuttlebug to cut where they would overlap each other so they sit more smoothly on the card even though they are popped up.  
I used Glossy Accents 
to add drops to the bubbles on my card. Love how it works. I finished off with a tiny bit of washi and sentiment. Fun card to make.

In Lou's Honor

Card for Lou
Christy Croll owner of Tiddly Inks created this digi  Lou - Fight Like A Girl 
(Pick it up for FREE Here. )
for Lou in honor of her current battle with Breast Cancer.  So Tiddly Ink Design Team Members Old and New are playing with this image, that is free in the store now, for Lou. 

I drew my border on my patterned paper background free hand and filled in squares (chanelling my inner Faye).  Then I printed out my image, colored up, cut out and popped up on the card.  I finshed using some goodies I won from Heather Hoffman's blog earlier this year.  I love the puffy sequins. 

Love you Lou.  Thinking of You, sending positive vibes and a big HUG.

SPD March 2017 Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop

Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop Time SugarPea Fans
Now that you SugarPea Lovers have the February Release
in your hot little hands it is time for an inspirational hop from the Design Team. 
I am having a little popcorn fun with this easy peasy CAS card I made for this hop.
I used the SugarCut - Popcorn Treat Box to cut half of one side and cut off the flaps.  I lined it up at the top of my card like it is pouring out onto the card and cut off the excess.  I also used the die to cut out the Pop Corn words three times, layer them and adhere them to the box front.  Then I cut out the popcorn with the same die. I stamped my sentiment using What's Poppin'? then popped up my box and popcorn for a little dimension. 
What's Poppin'?
What's Poppin'?
