This time of the year I’ve a large number of birthday cards to make, so I thought that this cute image called “Bug Birthday – Bird 4” would be a great place to start. This is also my card for the July “Bugaboo Crafty Challenge” at The Crafting Circle.Com.
If you haven’t checked out the new and improved “Bugaboo” Digital Online Store, make sure you do. She’s always got great sales going on and some of the nicest digital stamps around…and don’t forget to check out her Free Image each Friday.
I chose to color this image with my Copic Markers and also my Prisma Colored Pencils. The patterned papers were all from a new stack by Echo Park that I bought at a recent Convention. The stack is Called “Birthday Wishes.”
I cut my colored image with a Spellbinder’s Scalloped Circle Die, plus I used the Die-Namics “Bottle Cap Numbers” by My Favorite Things to cut out the date.
Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you next time. Good luck on the Challenge.
My project this month for the Bugaboo Crafty Challenge is a Bookmark. Here in the U.S.A., we will be celebrating our Independence on the 4th of July next month and this image hits the spot. She’s called, “Stella Calendar Month July USA.” I also really liked the sentiment that went with it. LOL.
I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers and also used a Gold Prisma Pencil. I’m not sure who makes the pattern paper that I used, as I have had it for ages and didn’t find a name on the back. It’s from a 12×12 single sheet of paper so maybe it’s from Joanns or Michaels.
I also used small magnets so the Bookmark will hold securely to the page. I’ve had several fall out of my book lately and it’s very frustrating to try and find my place again. I think this will solve that problem.
I hope you’ll come and join us and good luck with winning something. Also – don’t forget to check out the Bugaboo Store for their weekly sales and Friday Freebie.
It’s the 15th of the month and time for our May Bugaboo Crafty Challenge. I picked this adorable “Ava Grad Diploma” image from the Bugaboo Digital Stamp Store. It’s a most appropriate image for this time of the year, plus I wanted to make a card for a family member who is graduating from Kindergarten this year.
I colored the image with my Copic Markers and also used a White Gell Pen. I really dug through my old papers and came up with one that is from one of the very first Paper Books that I bought made by Paper Pizazz. It has to be close to 30 years old! And speaking of “very old,” you can add these “School Days” Stickers by Francis Myer, Inc., to the list.
The Dies I used are the Bottle Cap Letters and Numbers by Die-Namics by My Favorite Things.
I hope you can join us this month and share your creation with us….You could be the winner! Also remember that the Bugaboo Store has been revamped recently and if you haven’t been there lately, you might have to set up a new sigh in.
Have a great month!
You guys all know how I love these Bugaboo Digi “Older” characters. Well, this one was perfect for a friend of mine who can no longer “Hop” around with the grandkids. (I also know that feeling!)
This image is called “Stella Tid-Bits – Old Bunnies.” I’ve colored her with my Copic Markers to match the colors in the pattern paper. The paper is from The Disney “All Seasons Mega Pad,” which has turned out to be my favorite and most versatile paper pad that I’ve ever purchased.
The Die is a Die-Namics by My Favorite Things and another item that is turning out to be a “go-to” favorite of mine called the “Stitched Rectangle Scalloped Edge.” I’ve made some dots in the background using a Copic Pen and Ranger “White Opal” Liquid Pearls.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you grab a Bugaboo Digi and join the monthly Bugaboo Crafty Challenge sponsored by Bugaboostamps over at Craftingcircle.com.
Our Crafty Awesomeness Challenge this month uses one of the awesome Bundles from Bugaboo Digital Stamps. These great “Stick Figures” can be used for so many things.
I’ve finished two of the set here and will add others during the month. These are all concerning being “Earth Friendly” and will eventually end up being a set of cards that I will be sending to a friend who is a great advocate of Recycling, Planting Plants and Trees and generally making the Earth a better place for our children and grandchildren.
These images are colored with my Copic Markers and tied with Twine from my stash. I also used my Martha Stewart Score Board to make some lines along the bottom of the card. I used the Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper on the bottom corners of the card. The Cloud and Letters are Die-Namics by My Favorite Things.
