Anything Goes...LadyBug Line!

Hello, it's the first Saturday of the month, so this weeks challenge at Catch The Bug is Anything Goes! For today's card I used Ladybug Line from Bugaboo Stamps. Who would want these laydbugs to fly away, they're so cute!

I coloured the image with copics and added a bit of stickles for some sparkle. The card base is real red with a piece of black dotty paper I found in my scrap paper and the green striped paper is from Cosmo Cricket.

The tag was made with a Martha Stewart punch, the sentiment is from SU Honeycomb Hello, and I finished it off with twine.

I also used this weeks Freshly Made Sketch FMS193

Happy 4th of July,

Oldie But Goodie, Bentley!

Hello, it's Oldie But Goodie day at Catch The Bug, and today I'm showing you one of my favorites...this is Bentley-On The Inside from Bugaboo Stamps. I used Bentley to make a baby card for my Nephew & his Girlfriend who is expecting a boy in July.

I've already been to a shower, but I made the baby a sweater so I will include this with the gift when he arrives. So I made the card smaller, it's actually 4.25" square. I coloured the image with copics.

The card base is marina mist, with a layer of white and then dsp in the same colour. I used a word bubble die for the sentiment, and finished it off with some twine!

I also used the sketch from Sketch Saturday #367.

Have a Great Day!

OBG, Kidz-Graduate Girl!

Hello, it's Oldie But Goodie Day at Catch The Bug. Today I used Kidz-Graduate Girl from Bugaboo Stamps. I think she's so cute. I made this for my Daughter's girlfriend, who just graduated from University. The school's colours are red and gray so I went with those colours.

I coloured the image with copics and added a bit of sparkle with copic atyou spicas in red and gold. The card base is white, with a layer of basic gray and the red piece is from Recollections. The star is gold glimmer paper and I embossed the sentiment, from SU, with white embossing powder.

I also used the deconstructed sketch DS204

HMW, It's Eat Your Veggies Day!

Hello, it's Humor Me Wednesday over at Catch The Bug, and I made a card for Eat Your Veggies Day, which is today!

I know it seems weird to showcase a juicy burger on Eat Your Veggies Day, but this is actually a portabella mushroom burger topper with veggies and as a side he's having a tossed salad...or maybe grilled veggies! lol

This is AKV BBQ-Hamburger from Bugaboo Stamps. I coloured him with copics. This whole card started with the small piece of scrap designer paper, I added some grass, twine and a sentiment and there you have it!

Have a Great Day!

SSS310, Happy Graduation!

Hello, it's time for this month's Stella Says Sketch over at Catch The Bug...
I used this month's sketch to make a Graduation card for my Niece who will be graduating from Grade 8 this month. I used Ava Grad Diploma from Bugaboo Stamps
I also used an oval instead of the circle to better fit the image and I wanted the leopard of the designer paper to show.
I know this seems like odd papers for a grad card, but when I checked out the schools website to see what their colours were, I found they were blue and that their mascot was a leopard, so this seemed like a good idea!
I coloured the image with copics. The card base is black, with a layer of blue embossed with a leopard embossing folder and designer paper from Bo Bunny zoology. For the embellishments, I used 3 sequins each topped with a rhinestone.

Please join in our challenge and upload your card to the Catch The Bug Blog, you have the whole month to enter!

Have a Great Day!
