Meowy Christmas….

Hi again.  It’s time for the Bugaboo Crafty Challenge at the Crafting Circle.com.  Since I still needed Christmas Cards, I chose this cute digi  image called “Meowy Christmas” to use.  It can be found here at the Bugaboo online stamp store.

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and also used some white craft paint to highlight the fur on the cap. I also made two layers for the nose and layered it with foam pops.

I plan to make several of these cards to send to my friends who are cat lovers.

Pop on over to Bugaboo and see the great collection of Christmas images that she has and she adds more each week.

Wishing Ewe….

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.

Just Flying By….

This card was made following a sketch from The Crafting Circle Monthly Blog.  The image used on the card is one issued by Bloobel for their May Progressive Challenge.  The image is called “Fairy Pig.”

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and Prisma Pencils.  I used Spellbinder Scalloped Circle Dies and Rectangle Dies.  The Happy Birthday is a new die I just bought by Die-Namics from My Favorite Things. The Type was computer set.

Thanks for stopping by.

Birthday Bird…..

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.

Under the Sea….

Our Crafty Awesomeness Challenge for June is to make a “Shaker Card” and to use our “Gina Marie” Dies.  This was a no brainer for me, as I have plenty of her Beach and Sea oriented dies.

I cut my dies using white paper and colored them using my Copic Markers and a few Prisma Colored Pencils. The plastic Domes are available from here.  The sparkling beads used were a type of “Christmas Ice” bought at Hobby Lobby.  (I’m always picking up things that I think will look cool in a shaker card so I have them when needed.)

The circle background paper was an old scrap, but the wood-pattern paper was from a Glitz 6×6 Paper Pad called “Dapper Dan.”

The Shark Sticker was another dip into sticker notebook that I’ve had for years and years.  I’m determined to make use of as many as I can on my future cards!

I hope you can join us and maybe you’ll be the winner. The challenge runs through the end of June.

Thanks for stopping by.
