It’s time for our Crafty Awesomeness Challenge at The Crafting Circle.com. This time we could make any type of card so I chose to make another Christmas Card for my pile, which is slowly growing. I better get moving ’cause it will be here before we know it!
I used a pre-made card base from Hobby Lobby. The black and white striped paper is by Canvas Corp. and was a scrap from a previous card. I fell in love with the paper with the old car with the Christmas tree on top and just had to buy it. It’s a single sheet by The Paper Studio and is sold at Hobby Lobby.
I turned this into a shaker card using the “Merri Christmas” Die Circle and matching plastic dome. These are both by Die-Namics by My Favorite Things. I used a single circle punch for the black dots on the paper and put a shaker “flake” on each one. I probably should have dry embossed the card background, but I didn’t think of it in time. The “flakes” are from Hobby Lobby.
I’m looking forward to seeing your entries into the challenge.
It’s time for our monthly “Bugaboo Crafty Challenge” at The Crafting Circle, and I’ve decided this time to make a Birthday Card. I chose to use this adorable image called “Birthday Fishes.”
I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers. The Card Base is made from a Kraft Cardstock by My Favorite Things. The Pattern Paper is from a stack called “Fun & Frolic” also by MFT.

Sorry that my Bugaboo Crafty Challenge for September is so late, but we were caught in the middle of Hurricane Irma and things are just now getting back to normal here.
I was thrilled to be able to do another card for my Christmas pile. This cute little digi and sentiment is called “Merry Christmas to Ewe” and both can be found here on the Bugaboo Store site. Don’t you just love that cute little face? I sure do.
My papers are from a stack by “The Paper Studio” called “Snow Day” and bought at Hobby Lobby. I’ve had it a few years now and I still love this aqua and red combination for Christmas. I’m hoping that I can find a new stack this year that I love as much as I do this one. If you’ve found any that you really like, please let me know.
I’ve colored my image with Copic Markers, picking up the colors in the paper. I decided to make it a shaker card using these smaller shaker windows that I had just bought from My Favorite Things. Unfortunately, I found the smaller window harder for me to work with, as some of the styrofoam “snow balls” were just a tad too big and they were a tight fit. I find that they don’t shake as well as I would like them to.
The Twine was from my stash and the large circle ring is cut with a Die-Namic die also from My Favorite Things.
Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask them. Good luck with your entry.
This is my card for the Bugaboo Crafty Awesomeness Challenge at the Crafting Circle.con for August. This cute Digi Stamp is called “Clyde – Get Well,” and it’s one of the newer images available at Bugaboo Digital Stamps. Make sure to check them out for their weekly sales and Friday Freebie image.
I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers and I’ve also used a few Prisma Colored Pencils for highlighting. To add a little sparkle, I’ve dotted the background with “Star Dust” Stickles by Ranger. The Buttons are made from a Die-namic Die by My Favorite Things. The patterned paper was a remnant from my stash. I used a Corner Rounder on the corners.
Good luck with your entry.
Welcome to the “Crafty Awesomeness Challenge” for August. Our featured digital stamped images this month are from Kitty Bee Designs. The one I’m using is called the “Flower Love Bug” and can be found here.
I colored the image using my Copic Markers and highlighted it with a white pen. The checked patterned paper cardstock is from the “It’s A Boy” Dots and Stripes by Carta Bella. I used the Die-Namics “Hello” Die by My Favorite Things. The Foliage is a die by Memory Box and I believe the Stitched Rectangles might be a Gina Marie Die, but I’m not completely certain. The Corners were in my stash.
Thanks for stopping by and please join us in the challenge.
