Bugaboo ABAC

For the ABAC (Anything But A Card) posting at Bugaboo, I made a 6x6 scrapbook page for a friend.  She just became a Grandmother : )

 How sweet is this???  I used Bugaboo images Baby Moon and Baby Word  on this background, as well as letters for the name and date from diecuts (DieVersions). 
 I used boarders from my stash- they are from years ago, bit I love how they look!  The images are colored using COpic markers and using Wink of Stella for shimmer. The DP is DCWV.

Nature ATC's

The January ATC theme this month was Nature.  There are so many different ways I could create, but, I had some mulberry paper that caught my eye and decided to use it.

 The butterfly is a Memory Box die. I cut the bottom layer with a Forest Green dark cardstock, and  the gold on the top layer is Gold Vellum.

Here are the trades:
Diane M. on the Lt with a bee themed ATC, the back is stamped on as well.
On the Rt is Harriet. 

On the Lt is Linda's ATC
On the Rt is Diane S.

On the Lt is Mary
On the Rt is Marcy

My entire sheet of ATC's

 The variation in the mulberry paper is shown here.

Swell Birthday

The Alphabet challenge at SCS is on "W", and I made a card using White EP, which is also the Ways to Use It challenge at Splitcoaststampers.

   The background is made using Mica ink reinkers- so it is so very shimmery!  The silver (shark and sentiment) is also a Mica reinker on black bardstock.  I embossed the shark and fussy cut it out. The crown is stamped and cut out of an Alcohol Ink background scrap. This was such a fun challenge!

Craft Rocket- something new- New stamps : )
Mix it Up- AG plus paper piecing- shark : )

Dueling Darlings- January- Penguins

Terry S and LJ are the hostesses for the Dueling Darlings this month, and they have sent us kits with a theme of Penguins.  Oh, this was so fun!  I used much of the kit ....

 For the Dazzlers, Terry S sent us a fun kit featuring a Penguin set from Inky Antics.  I had a blast creating and coloring and trying to be creative!
  For this first card, I cut a strip from each DP 1/2" and 2 1/4" strips.  I ran cardstock through the Xyron and placed the strips across the background.  Yeah- used all of the Dp sent in the kit on the background!
  Thje image was colored using Copic markers. See the end of the blog post for the deets of the kit!

I would like to enmter this in the challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies challenge. I used DP cut into paper strips for the background, so would like to enter into the Crafty Hazelnut's challenge- DP

 This is using a Sketch for the challenge at Try Stampin onTuesday .  I used a circle die and coloring using Copic markers.

  Yep, three cards from the kit.  This one, I colored the penguin using a darker penguin..... I like the lighter colors.

Bugaboo 10th Birthday

The Birthday Bash is on day 5.  Lots of great prizes if you play!!!

  If there are dog years, there must be Cow years, right???  Cows normally live 18-22 years (if not raised for food). One year of a cow = 14 human years, each year after that add 4.....  so a 4 year old cow is 26 human years......

  Image was colored using Copics.  Sentiment is computer generated.

 Come join us at the Bugaboo Challenge Blog- Catch the Bug- lots and lots of great prizes!!!

Bugaboo's 10th Birthday- New Release

Today, there is a New Release at Bugaboo, another fun image for the farm theme for the 10th Birthday Bash! Today we have a BINGO board for Inspiration.

 Stripes- Bugaboo Image and Gems were used from the BINGO BOARD

 Isn't this fun Birthday pig image adorable?  I colored using Copic markers. The background is Distress Inks in Raspberry and Worn Lipstick.  I spritzed a TCW stencil with water, laid it down on the background, pressed using a paper towl, then when the stencil was lifted, it left an impression of little swirls.  It is barely faint, so not overpowering.  I sponged Candy Apple DI around the edges of the card. The stripe DSP is by Gina K.

I hope you can join us for the 10th Birthday Bash at Catch the Bug challenge blog- there are lots and lots of fun prizes everyday!!!
