HMW, Mad Hatter Day!

Hello, it's Humor me Wednesday at Catch The Bug. It's a day when we make cards or projects for the lesser known holidays. Well October 6th is Mad Hatter Day, my project today features a hat. Not just any hat, this is Magical Tidbit-hat from Bugaboo Stamps. I used it to make a corner bookmark for my Daughter Olivia. She loves reading and is a fan of Harry Potter, and according to an online quiz, she would be in Slytherin if she went to Hogwarts, so I used the Slytherin colours green and gray.

I coloured the image with copics. The edges were sponged with going gray. The base is garden green, with a piece of white embossed with the argyl embossing folder that I inked up with garden geen.

All Halloween and Fall images are now 25% off at Bugaboo Stamps til Oct. 31st.

Have a Great Day!

SSS315, Chibi Snowman!

I just now realized I didn't add the little rhinestones I had planned to put on my card, I'll have to add them later I guess!
For my card today I used the new Chibi Snowman from Bugaboo Stamps. The card base is white embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder. The designer paper was from a Martha Stewart pad.
I coloured the image with copics and added some Wink of Stella. The sentiment is from a SU set and I can't remember which one right now!

Anything Goes...Chibi Reindeer!

Hello, this weeks Saturday Challenge at Catch The Bug is Anything Goes! I made a Christmas card because there are so many new totally adorable images at Bugaboo Stamps and I was dying to use one so this is Chibi Reindeer!

I coloured the image with copics then I embossed with the Softly Falling EF and added dazzling diamonds glitter with the quickie glue pen. The card base is cherry cobbler with a layer of SU Fresh Prints dsp. There's a strip of crumb cake and glimmer paper punched with the MS icicle edge punch and then it's finished off with snowflakes made with the Northern Frost die and twine.

Freebie Friday, Halloween House Silhouette!

 Hello, it's Freebie Friday at Bugaboo Stamps, and todays Freebie is this awesome Halloween House Silhouette.

For my project today I made a card that can also be used as a decoration, simply by using a battery operated tealight.

My card base is black, with a layer or purple from Recollections (I now it looks blue, but IRL it's purple) I stamped it with the woodgrain background stamp and sponged the edges in eggplant ink. The image was printed onto vellum, which works beautifully. I coloured in some of the windows with a yellow copic on the back of the vellum. Then I just finished it with some twine.

Here's what it looks like lit up! Make sure to stop by the Catch The Bug Blog, there's lots of great samples using this weeks Freebie!

Have a Great Day!
