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.
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.
Here it is the beginning of the month and time for the new Crafty Awesomeness Challenge. This month’s sponsor is “Cute As A Button,” which features the wonderful digital Stamps of the owner – Francesca Lopez.
With Easter just around the corner, I chose the image called “Bunny Egg,” #IMG00186. I’ve colored her with my Copic Markers and used the Die-namics Wonky Ovals to cute out the image. I believe the Fence is a “Do Hicky” Die Cut by Magnolia. The corner Dies are by Memory Box and called the “Snowflake Corner.” The cute papers are from an old Heidi Grace paper Stack called “Summer Showers.” I’m down to my last few pieces of paper and I’ve loved everyone of them!
I wanted to do something a little different, so my Easel Card turned into a sort of “Diorama.” LOL. The Grass, Bunnies and Eggs were in my stash and I believe they originally came from Joanns. The small paper eggs were cut with an old punch that I’ve had for years.
Come on over and join the fun! You could be a Winner!
CHALLENGES I’VE ENTERED:
This is my Design Team Post for The October “Crafty Awesomeness” Monthly Challenge. The adorable image is a digital one from Sasayaki Glitter “Midsummer night’s dream”, which I colored with Copic Markers. It’s available here. I thought it made a perfect Christmas Card.
I used a pre-made card base by Recollections from Michaels. All the patterned papers are from a Christmas Stack that I bought last year at Hobby Lobby and is called “Snow Day” by The Paper Studio.
The small letters are from the Bottle Cap Dies from Die-namics by My Favorite Things and the number and larger letter is by Momenta and was purchased at Hobby Lobby. The “Wonky” Ovals are also from MFT.
I also used my Corner Chomper and some Foam Adhesive Dots to pop my embellishments.

BLOGS I’VE ENTERED:
Here is my card made from Sketch #1 of the Monthly Crafting Circle “Just for Fun Blog.” It’s fun to follow the sketches and whatever else they “THROW” at us…like their way out there extra credits!
And speaking of those extra credits, my card also incorporates some of them from this month such as: using Vellum, Fabric, and a Hand-colored image.
I used a 5-1/2 x 5-1/2 white pre-made card base and envelope set from JoAnn Craft Essentials. The Pattern Paper is from a new BoBunny 6 x 6 Paper Stack from Hobby Lobby called “Altitude.”
The digital image is a Mo Manning one called “Chill,” which I’ve colored with my Copic Markers. The image is cut with a rectangle Spellbinders “Nestability Die” and backed with papers from my scraps box. The layers were then put on part of a Gauze Bandage to add to the snowy look.
The Snow Flakes are cut from a Die Set by “Die-namics” from MY Favorite Things and were cut out of a heavy vellum that I bought one time at “Tuesday Morning” and never used. It’s got some great “bright” colors in the package that I’ll be sure to use on Christmas Flowers.
I have dotted the centers of the Snowflakes and parts of the background with “Rhinestones” by Gemstones from Hobby Lobby.
Thanks for looking, Dee
