Bugaboo Birthday Bash- 7th & final day!

Well, it's the end of the week at the Bugaboo Birthday Bash party.  The challenge is at the Catch the Bug challenge blog.  We are using the photo below for inspiration : )  It is also Freebie Friday in the Bugaboo store.


 I used the picture inspiration for picking my DP .


The sentiment is from the Bugaboo set The Candles set. The image is colored with Copic markers. I got out some old old old SU twine that seemed to be perfect for the colors. A few added sequins to finish off the card. Not my usual colors, But it turned out fun!

Tuesday Throwdown- Embossing

 I have 2 blog posts today- for the Bugaboo Birthday Bash New Release post, see the next post.

The Tuesday Throwdown challenge for the next two weeks is Embossing.  Our sponsor is DRS. We were able to choose our images, and I chose the Serenity Prayer image.


  I embossed the background of this Lavender Lace cardstock and highlighted it with Lavender Lace ink. The image was die cut and placed over the embossing. The sequins are purple and are by Unity Stamps.  The twine was added as a finishing touch.

Stop by the Tuesday Throwdown blog and see the other beautiful cards by the team using DRS designs!

Bugaboo Birthday Bash 4- New Release Day!

For the New Release at Bugaboo, something fun this week- there will be a flash New Release and a regular new release- see the Store for details!  I made a card with each of them using the Bingo challenge board for today!!!


The Bingo row I used is :Die Cut-Gem-ribbon  I used a die that I am not sure where it is from.....  the background is from a spellbinders die. The DP is very old Basic Grey. I used enamel dots for my gems, and twine for my ribbon.  I am unsure of where the sentiment is from- I found it in my old flash drive file.

 Next, I created for the 2nd New Release.
The Bingo row I used is: Die Cut- Free-Stripes  The party hats are in stripes across the page.  I chose colors from the hats.  I used Gina K red cardstock. The Die is Gina Marie. The Sentiment is very old- Stampin Up. I added enamel dots to all of the corners.

 Fun images to create with- I hope you will join us at the Catch the Bug challenge blog for the Birthday Bash- some great prizes to be won!

 I used some Washi tape from my stash for the background, and then colored the monsters which are fussy cut out.
  The tag dies are generic and the sentiment is Stampin Up as is the blue ribbon. I love these fun images in this set of Monsters!  The set is called: Mini Set-Monster Blocks .

Asian Landscape

I joined a landscape mingle held in the AOSA (About Oriental Stamp Art) Yahoo group. This image package states it is Japanese Garden, but it reminds me of the Yu'an Gardens in Shanghai.


This image is from I Brake for Stamps. I colored it with Copics. The background is cardstock with smooshed ink on it. The border is a MS punch. I added a very thin strip of holographic Washi. I made the sentiment into a small tag and added enamel dots as you can see. Coloring the scene took me back to China and I was pleased with the end result : )

COF - "Rock"

For our first Crafters of Faith 2019 challenge, Kelly is our hostess.

Scripture: “There is no one holy like the LORD; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God. ~1 Samuel 2:2 

My challenge for you this month is my son's gifted rock! (See the photo inspiration.) Use a rock somewhere on your card. It can be a single stone, river rocks, mountains - however the scriptures speaks to you! And if none of those work, maybe you want to use rock dsp or river rock ribbon, etc. 



  Here is my card:



 The image is from I Brake for Stamps, it is called Well and Roses. I colored with it with Copics. The Sentiment is from Our Daily Bread/aka Divinity Stamps Thinking of You set. 
 The sequins are from Unity Stamps. The die is an older Spellbinders one. 
HERE is the link for the other COF cards using Kelly's theme over at Splitcoaststampers. 
Challenges:
Crafty Calendar- Make it floral
Colour Crazy-AG Coloring challenge

Happy Birthday

Happy New Year!

I wanted to share a card for the Anything Goes challenge that starts today at the Catch the Bug Challenge blog- for Bugaboo!


Candles set for sentiment


 I took a side shot to hopefully show off the shimmer : )  The image was colored with Copics and the shimmer is Wink of Stella.

 I sponged Versamark around the edges and dipped them in silver EP to add a metallic layer without adding more cardstock.  There is also Crystal Effects on her eyeglasses.
