DT INkspirational Photo Prompt


It's time for another challenge at INkspirational!

Picket Fence Studios Succulent Blossoms, Stamplorations printable, Brutus Monroe Cover die

Check out this gorgeous photo:

I saw the flying books and plants and thought about ladies in my family who are passionate readers and plant enthusiasts.

Majority of the motivation comes from stress and wanting to escape the stresses of life.

It's not easy being a woman, but we have our ways of coping and growing and we try to create beautiful lives. ;)

That's where my mind went!

Let's see your creation; please join us for our newest challenge~

Cherry Blossom Phone Stand With Oven Innie

My aunt had a birthday recently and I've been tweaking the details on the innie of this phone stand.

Sizzix Scoreboards XL Eileen Hull Phone Stand die, Hero Arts Cherry Blossom Fancy die, Glitterific Silver Polka Dot

Here's the back end...I merged Spellbinders Shopping bag die with The Greetery's Bake Someone Happy Oven.

Sizzix Scoreboards XL Eileen Hull Phone Stand die, The Greetery Bake Someone Happy, Spellbinders Shopping Bag dies

I couldn't fit the whole oven in here, so I adapted Betsy's idea 

of using parts of it (like her tags).

The top pieces of the oven die cut are wrapped around the larger Spellbinder's Shopping Bag die

cuts (trimmed a wee bit).

I left the bottom portion of the oven die as a connecting flap to the bottom innie.


Thank you for your sweet visit!

You Are Top of the List


I painted multiple panels in a few sittings (acrylic plus glitterific) so I could finish a card at whim like this one~

Honey Bee Stamps Inside: Thankful Sentiments, Hero Arts Rounded Rectangles

I wanted a card for my wonderful stylist who is helping me grey/gray gracefully with a little purple ;).

Simon Says (Wednesday): Anything Goes

I appreciate your sweet visits!

Glamorous Phone Stand

It doesn't look like much, but this is probably the most elegant of phone stands that I've created so far.

Sizzix Scoreboards XL Eileen Hull Phone Stand die, FolkArt Black Opal Glitterific Paint/Metallic Aquamarine Acrylic Paint, ArtMinds Outdoor Tire Swing Acrylic Paint
 (INSIDE SPACE):Picket Fence Studios Your Eyeliner Straight,Sizzix Purse

 It took a couple of black coats and a Glitterific abstract section.

The smaller pieces are painted with Metallic Aquamarine that also took a couple of coats.

I managed to snap a pic before closing her up: here's the inside...

I was trying to give a 3D vibe by stamping Picket Fences Studios' Your Eyeliner Straight scene on the crease.


I appreciate your sweet visits!
