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.

Puddles…Oh My….

This is my newest card. It was made with a free digi called “Rainy Days” which was offered for the Scrapper’s Delight April Progressive Challenge. I sure wish we had some puddles down here.  It’s hot and dry as can be. I don’t think we’ve had any April Showers this year!

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and the Sentiment is computer printed.  I’ve used a sheet of Pattern Paper from the MFT paper stack called “Plaid Patterns.” I used my Martha Stewart Score Board to score the bottom inch of the card and finished that off with rounded corners and a bit of blue and white Twine from my stash. The Blue Sequins are also from My Favorite Things.

I then used a Hexagon Die from Gina Marie which I traced around and hand-cut out.

 

 

 

 

Being Earth Friendly….

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.

Life is Like….

It’s time again for our monthly “Bugaboo Challenge” at The Crafting Circle. I chose this image because it’s a little different from what I usually do, which is one of her “funky” older gals or guys.  This little guy is called “Riding A Bike,” and I loved the message that came with him.

He’s colored with my Copic Markers, and I used a Sukura Micron Black Pen to add the road and stones.  I don’t usually color in the complete background, but since it’s something I learned while taking a class at Kit and Clouder, I thought I’d give it a try.  I like how it came out and I’m sure I’ll do it again. Maybe next time it will a different medium.

The Clouds and Sun are Die-Namics from My Favorite Things.  The Twine is from Hobby Lobby.  The Peace Charm on the front of his bike is by Darice.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to check out the Bugaboo Digi Stamp site. She keeps adding new stamps each week and these and others are often on sale. She also has a great selection of $1 stamps.

Feathers….

This is my Card Sketch #3 for the Monthly Challenge Forum over at Crafting Circle. Our instructions were to follow the Sketches and the Extra Credits that were picked by the monthly host. Since the Sketch showed Feathers, I thought it was a perfect time to pull out this unused Die-namic Dies by My Favorite Things. The real Feather is compliments of my bird!

This was such a simple card to make because there is no image to color. The Pattern Paper is a single sheet from Hobby Lobby and the small pieces of Cardstock were in my scraps pile.  The Hemp Twine is from My Favorite Things.

If you have time, please come and join us. It’s a “just for fun” challenge and gives you something fun to keep you busy.

Thanks for dropping in.
