Hello Everyone..

It is inspiration time for SASAYAKI GLITTER and I chose this cute guy called " Mouse on a Bike "

Oh, he was so fun to colour and play with..

I made my road for him to ride on and added the die cut town behind...

A bit of a cloudy day but the sun is peeking out from behind the cloud..

Then I started to add the grass..and added it...and added it...

Until I had a forest of grass along the road least it would be a soft landing if he fell off..

So there we go...SASAYAKI GLITTER  has loads of adorable and fun images in pop on over pick up a few and have fun..

Thanks for stopping by...

Hello beautiful crafter friends, and happy Friday from icy Melbourne. It is so cold here at the moment and we can not wait for warmer seasons any longer. Here today with another amazing project from our lovely July guest designer Kitty. Hope you love her gorgeous project as much as we do.

I love the colour combination Kitty has chosen for her project, the layout of the card is super adorable and I love that cherry banner. Such a beautiful project. Love all that details and the colours she has chosen for her project. The Happy Birthday and Balloon Banner is just so gorgeous.
Her colouring is stunning.

Make sure you swing by her blog and see her other wonderful creations!

                  This post is much later than it should have been due to some technical issues with my video. I think they’re all under control now though! I hope you enjoy this summery coffee themed card.
                  I started by printing the Frappe Unicorn, which is image #120, onto some alcohol marker friendly paper. I then used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers to colour the image in. The exact colours used can be seen in the video above.I went with light grey to add shade to the unicorn’s body as I wanted it to appear white. I then used darker greys for the hooves. I coloured the nose pale pink, using the same for the inner ears. The mane and tail I did blue and yellow to match the colours I would be using in the background. Finally I coloured the coffee and whipped cream in brown and cream tones respectively.Having completed colouring my image I carefully fussy cut it out. I then added a healthy coat of shimmer using my Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen.For the background I used a variety of leftover ink smooshed pieces. I’d created them whilst working on other projects. I had been doing some ink blending, and rather than wasting the ink left on my craft mat each time I instead spritzed them with water, and used them to make the smooshed background.The largest smooshed panel, which I used for my background, is made.with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide. The long panel is Mermaid Lagoon, and is an offcut of a larger panel that I used for a recent card. Finally the third piece is with Worn Lipstick.I edged my two strips with clear iridescent glitter peel offs, to add some more sparkle and shine to the card. I then used double sided tape to adhere each panel to my card, before attaching the unicorn using my tape runner.I used a sentiment from Love From Lizi’s ___ stamp set, which I stamped with Mermaid Lagoon onto my blue panel. Finally I added sprinkles to the coffee using Nuvo Jewel Drops in Limoncello and Seabreeze. I also used the Seabreeze to add interest to the unicorn’s glasses.This card manages to be fun without being too over the top. It was great to find a way to use up the smooshed backgrounds and I like that I was able to match the colours on my unicorn to the background pieces without any trouble. The sprinkles on the coffee would have worked better if they weren’t translucent, but they were the only drops I had in suitable colours, so I felt it was good enough.

                  Hello everyone!  Hope you are doing awesome and enjoying your summer.  I just returned over the weekend from an awesome family vacation overseas.  I had a great time but I am glad to be home – I miss my dogs when we travel and also miss my crafting time, but I am so thankful for the opportunity to go and to spend time with family.
                  Today I am sharing a video I made several weeks ago using one of the amazing images from Sasayaki Glitter shop.  I chose Image #84 Under Water.  My video, shares some of my coloring techniques and some details on the easal card variation I made for this project.  Hope you will check it out and let us know what you think!
                  My card is a variation of an easel card.  I chose my papers from Doodlebug Designs and added a sentiment from a clear stamp in my stash.  Both image and sentiment are cut out with Gina Marie Designs die.  I added shells from my stash and bling from Bo Bunny.   I sure hope you like it and will go watch my video
                  Here is a closer view of my colored image.
                  You can check out my videos on the Sasayaki Glitter YouTube Channel and all images can be found at the Sasayaki Glitter shop on Etsy, go check it out, you will be happy you did, SO MANY awesome images!
