With Sympathy….

It’s time again for the Crafty Awesomeness Challenge on Crafting Circle.Com.  For the month of October our DT was to make a Color on Color Card.  I chose White on White.  We could add a pop of color and I chose to use Silver.

Sympathy cards are not my favorite to make but I needed one, and I just thought this would work out well. The Large Die Cut is by Die’sire from Crafters Companion and bought at Hobby Lobby.  The Banner Cut is by Hero Arts and is part of their Stamp & Cut line. It comes with two different size die Banners and an assortment of stamped sentiments to use with either banner.  I think I’m going to get a lot of use out of this set.

The Silver Paper was from my scraps. The Butterflies are made from an older Martha Stewart Punch.

Thanks, Dee.  Please come and join us this month.

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.

Spooky Time….

Our featured artist for the “Crafty Awesomeness Challenge” for September is non other than the very gifted artist Mr. Rick St. Dennis. This image is called “Excavation for Skulls” and is available here. Rick has some great images that cover all occasions, but I especially like his “Spooky” ones. This one will give me a start on my Halloween Cards for this year.

The image was colored with my Prisma Colored Pencils and was cut with my “Wonky Ovals” Die-Namics by My Favorite Things. The Rolled Flower Roses and other flowers are also made from Dies by Die-namics. The Branch Die is a Tim Holtz by Sizzix one.  The “Sequins” are from My Favorite Things and the other Black Decorations are from Hobby Lobby.

Please come and join us and maybe you’ll be this month’s winner.

CHALLENGES ENTERED:

“Mature” Easter Bunny….

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.
