Moving on here are the cool pieces I picked for my Inspiration this week from

My Personal Inspiration Pieces for my Projects

Now when I saw this picture I totally did not see it right I do not know if you can see what I saw but I saw a bird the beak is the blue piece on the edge at the top above the white circle, and the brown thing above what I saw as a beak was feathers sticking out of its head, and The Yellow part was a wing starting by the beak and going to it's tail feathers the piece at the end (bottom of photo) that sticks out, and the orange part looked like a flower to me too!!!!  Can you see what I saw???

This bow so reminded me of the bow on top of Happy Mails head so with the bird above and this bow I had to use Happy Mail for one of the inspiration pieces!!!

Here is Sweet Happy Mail. When I started her coloring and such I had gone out to the Color Throw down Challenge last week and planned to play in the challenge, but I am to late now!!! Bummer!!! So anyway the colors for the challenge last week were Purely Pomegranate and Taken with Teal, and Certainly Celery so this is what I came up with.
I used my very very very favorite SU DSP pack that I would just kill to get more of I only ever ordered one pack of it and I love it and want more really bad, but it is retired now!!! :-(!!!!
So Bali Breeze DSP from SU! The colors are not showing perfect to real life but the card back is Purely Pomegranate, the next layer is Old Olive from that DSP pack, the next layer is Taken with Teal DSP from the same pack, then back to the Old Olive and back one more layer with Purely Pomegranate DSP from the same Bali Breeze pack again.

Happy Mail is colored with my copics in these shades. BG00, BG11, BG32, BG34, RV81, RV83, RV85, and RV89, G20, G21, G24, E31, E35, and C2

I added some Maroon/Plum Dew Drops in two of the corners and then some antique metal brads in two of the corners the layers are popped up using my excess foam and rubber from my stamps and I added some Prima Flowers too!!!  In this side view you can see all of the deminsion the card has.

Here is Slusser I loved how this card turned out I have wanted this small bubbles CB folder for ages and ages because I have seen so so so many people use it in the best ways!!!!!

The papers are SU! Card Stock in Soft Sky, Bashful Blue, and Certainly Celery. The DSP is out of Washington Apple DSP packs all three patterns are. I used my Nesties Lable 9 for the die cut. I used the biggest die for the old olive layer and then traced around the outside and cut that out to make my biggest layer in the Bashful Blue, I do this a lot to get an in between size I either trace the outside or the inside for more layers between the Nestie sizes!!! I also used my Ribbon Tag Nesties set for the ribbon holder that I stamped the Sentiment on. The ribbon is actually Sage Shadow which you would not think would go with these colors but it did and it was upstairs already and I did not want to go find different ribbon I was shocked that it worked because it is a totally different color shade then all the others!!! LOL!!!

Here is Slusser. I colored him in C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, B100, E50, and RV21, (Pail) B00, B02, B24, and B21, G20, G21, and G24.

I made his cheeks by coloring them in after blending the C5, C7, and B100 on his feet then I just took the darker color that was on the tip of the copic after blending such dark colors and made his rosy cheeks only they are rosy black instead of rosy pink!!! LOL!!!

Here is the dimension shot.

I added Bright and Pretty shiny Copper Brads to accent most of the corners and I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch the holes for the brads (to bad that they are not showing up in all their gorgeous glory in the photos!!! I distressed the raised embossing bubbles with Pacific Point SU! ink.

Well I hope you enjoyed the DT samples today, and do not forget to come back tomorrow for our First Ever Inktegrity Blog Hop with the new releases and you are TOTALLY going to love this new set we are releasing you can do so many different things and it fits all kinds of occasions, religions, activities and so much more it is a must have set!!!!
