My card was totally inspired by the piece of dp I found in my scrap bin. I cut along the outside edge of the flowers to create the flower border on the bottom.
Edward and his little friend were coloured with copics. The card base is bashful blue, with a layer of white embossed with the swiss dot EF. The vine flourish was made with a Marianne Design die LR0116. For the flowers I used one of the itty bitty punches, and a tiny punch from the $ store. Then I added tiny rhinestones to the centers.
Make sure to check out the Catch The Bug Blog to see more great samples made using the new Dottie!
For my card, I coloured Dottie with copics. Then for the background, I used the TLC370 Faux Patina, technique lovers challenge on SCS. This is a really cool technique, love the results! I started with a white piece of cardstock and followed the steps using the same inks.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, hope your weekend is off to a good start! It has been unseasonably warm & beautiful here, which makes it hard to craft in the basement, but the show must go on!
This weeks Saturday Challenge on Bugaboo's Catch the Bug Blog, is a sketch, you can see it below.
For my card I used the new Theodore-Shamrocks, I just love this new addition to Bugaboo Stamps. I coloured him with copics. The dp was double sided, so I used one side on the top and the reverse on the bottom. The clovers were made with a fiskars punch.
Please join in the fun and create something using this sketch. Then upload your creation to the Catch The Bug Blog, for your chance to win some awesome images from Bugaboo Stamps!

Hello, I'm excited, get to share with you a tutorial for Catch The Bug's Tutorial Wednesday! This is a really simple tutorial to make a Faux Moon that will work great with the new Martian digis just released at Bugaboo Stamps.
One of my favorite crafting tools is embossing folders, and I love them even more when they can be used to create somethingother than just paper with texture! To make a Faux Moon, you will need the Spots & Dots embossing folder, circle nestie or punch whatever you use to create circles. I tried a few different papers, the spotted piece above is from DCWV's Nana's Nursery - Girl. In this photo you can see the results of 3 different papers I used, the middle one is Bazzill petty cash, it is sort of shiny and has a texture, the bottom one is certainly celery.
I cut my circle first, using only about 3/4's of the circle for this card. You are actually using the reverse side of the embossing folder so it looks like craters, so if your paper has a good side, make sure to put the good side facing the side without the logo.
Then just sponge the edges and you have a moon!
Another great embossing folder that does double duty is the Tiny Bubbles EF, it makes a great golf ball when using the back side up!
For my card above, I used the new Martian-ship. The card base is black, with a layer of daffodil delight and then a layer of dp from DCWV rock queen, and of course the moon!
I coloured the image with copics and added some stickles.

For my card today I used Yoga Dottie. I coloured her with copics and paper pieced her outfit.
I love the flower cards Kittie has been making lately, so I cased one of her gorgeous cards, you can see it here.
Hello, it's time for a sketch Challenge from Stella of Bugaboo Stamps! This weeks challenge SSS106, is a Tent Topper card, you can find a tutorial here!
I used the adorable new Edward Elephant-Present. I just love this cute new Elephant! I coloured the image with copics, and added some glitter.
The finished size fits a regular A2 envelope. I started with a base of 5.5"x6" and scored at 3". Then I positioned the image panel so it's just under 4.25" total.

For my card today I used the new Swinging Riley. He's coloured with copics. I masked him off and sponged some clouds in the background.
The tree was made with a die-namics die. For the grass I used the MS punch. The flowers were made with one of those tiny punches you can get at $ stores. I coloured the pearls with a copic to match better.
Please join us in our challenge and upload your creation to the Riley and Company Blog. Please you the keyword RILEY0512 if you upload to any forums.

I also made this for this weeks MOJO Monday sketch, MOJO230. The card is 4.25" square.
The card base is black, with a layer of riding hood red, very vanilla on top embossed with the square lattice EF. I think the bottom is basic grey dp, but I can't remember which pad, I found this piece in my scrap bin.
The flowers were made with 2 marvy punches and the leaves were made with the MS frond punch.
I finished it off with some twine and some stickles in the flower centers.
