Ways to Use Green!

I took the Ways to Use It challenge literally, like it said, and used green on my creation.

You could have actually recycled or reused stuff and put it on your card but I settled for using the colour green, unless you count using supplies that you never use and you SHOULD use, yep okay, I did that too....... lol!

I used Jen del Muro's sketch this week, because it is a cute sketch and because I haven't used any of her sketches since I was guest designer back in August (checkitoutcheckitoutcheckitoutsubliminalmessaging) I think I was scared off of sketches for awhile after that pressure lol!! But it was totally fun and such a great experience to be in amongst the "greats" and I don't say that lightly. Those ladies are absolutely amazing!!

Back to the card. I used
Cosmo Cricket Cogsmo designer paper throughout the whole card, except for the card base which is Papertrey Ink Stampers Select white. I LOVE it for card bases because it is sooooooo sturdy!!

I stamped the Cornish Heritage Farms Scroll scrapblock in Papertrey Ink Spring Moss on the green paper of the Cosmo Cricket paper and adhered it to the card base.

The image and sentiment are from Cornish Heritage Farms and they are two of Kim Hughes sweet little ol' stamps from the set Little Guy!

I coloured it with copics and outline the image and sentiment is Sakura glitter pen. I added some Stamping Bella crystal bon bons (too many I think, but then again can you ever have too many baubles??!! I think not.......)

The ribbon is from Making Memories and it really doesn't have any green in it. I just took my copic pen and coloured in some green in the circles sort of willy nilly here and there!

I ran the Fresh Snow pigment inkpad around the edge of the card just because it is sort of an interesting thing to do sometimes!

I also added, as you can see, a button and some twine, as so many are doing these days, so I am basically copying everyone is blogland - isn't that what makes the world go around - cheating and stealing?

Okay - I am just KIDDING!! and I don't copy everyone in blogland.....not everyone...... where am I going with this? where fast me thinks.......

Have a great day and go blog surfing and don't copy anybody! K?


  1. Fun card!! And your description had me giggling!

  2. Don't worry's just going with a trend, not copying!

    Your card is cute... and green is perfect for a little alien character. Or is he a robot? Doesn't matter, I love it!

  3. Green is my FAV color!!! and your little robot is too cute!

  4. I love this!!! Too cute!!

  5. What a cute card! That robot image is adorable, and I love the future/retro look of the patterned paper!

  6. Heehee -- I LOVE this!! Just too cute, with great elements! :)

    And, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? So, you aren't copying -- you're imitating! ;)

  7. OMGosh I just love your posts! They always make me laugh!! And what an awesome card!!!! I just bought this paper and now I am totally intimidated to use it! Mine will never turn at as cute as yours! LOL! Seriously though I am loving this! That little image is adorable and I love the machine feel to the card you achieved with your distressing and bling! But that ribbon is perfect! I can't believe it was not made for your paper! You are so clever to add green!


  8. This is too cute! Love the bon bons..I was just looking at those! And the green circles on your ribbon looks like they have always been there-cool! I love the button and twine too...I tend to follow the trends myself. Have a great weekend Bonnie!

    Word verification: unicrab

    Well Mr. Smith, it's a good thing it's just a unicrab or I'd have to prescribe an anitbiotic...

    Gross! Oh, where I could go with this word...

  9. I am smiling as I type this, as I do often after reading your posts! :) Great card!
