Have A Happy 4th Of July



Are you ready for the 4th of July?! You better be, because its just around the corner! I'm definitely ready! Can't you tell from this cute card I have to show you?!  I've used this cute image, Firecracker, from
Mayzy Art. She is adorable, isn't she? She is colored with Promakers.

This is meant to be a masculine card, made especially for my very best friend who lives in Florida.  He always appreciates my handmade cards, so he gets one especially made for him, every holiday and birthday.

All papers are from my stash. My card layout uses the sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy. I've added glitter and sparkle to the image with a clearstar gelly roll pen. The stars are punched with two star punches, by Recollections. I used some shiny blue adhesive star embellishments to add the finishing touch.

Happy Birthday, Hippie Chick!





Yet another card, from me, today.  This one is funky andwas made especially for a 16th birthday.  The image is called Blossom Hippie Chick, by Lacy Sunshine, colored with Promarkers.

Ice Cream Fun In The Sun




Hello, everyone! I have a new card to show you, today!  Crafty Sentiments is offering their newest Harriet image for free, right now, if you use it in their current challenge!  I just couldn't resist this little cutie, and just had to request her so I could play along. I don't think she is even in the store yet! Isn't she adorable?! This is my first Crafty Sentiments image and I love her so I will definitely have to start buying some of their images!
I've used the sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy, for my card layout. All papers are from my stash.  I love the polka dots on this! I think it really makes things stand out. This is the perfect card for summer, since Hariet is eating ice cream! Who doesn't think of ice cream when they think of summer!  I've use some green and metallic silver ribbon tied in a bow, to accent the image.  Purple pearls were used to set off the upper right and lower left corners of the card.  The purple butterfly above the image is also perfect for the summer theme, isn't it?

Happy Birthday, From Me To You




Have you missed our Stella Says Sketch challenges?! You've probably noticed that we're only doing one Stella Says Sketch challenge per month, during the summer months, instead of the usual two (Biweekly)< to give the DT a slight break.  Don't worry though, you still get one a month to play along in and we'll return to our normal Stella Says Sketch challenge schedule, once the summer is behind us.  But, for now, enjoy having an entire month to play along in our sketch challenge at Catch The Bug. As always, our lovely Jodie, from Bugaboo Stamps is giving away digi prize packages to some lucky winners - So be sure you come over to Catch The Bug and play along with us! You don't want to miss out on your chance to win!

I have a birthday card to show you, today. My card uses the image, Block - For You From Me, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. All papers are from my stash.  The flowers are by Prima and are also from my stash.  I've used the word window and modern label punches to punch my sentiment. Gold gemstones have been added to the flowers to make blingy flowered centers.

You Give Me Butterflies



Good Morning!

My apologies on this post being updated late.  We've had storms all night and my internet connection has been atrocious! Phew! Let's hope it stays up long enough, this time, for me to finish the post.

Today I have this cute new butterfly card to show you.  I love how this one turned out.  I used an image from Shelly's Images.  This is something new, for me.  I wanted to try a black and white card, with pops of color in the image.  I think it turned out beautiful! What do you think? I love butterflies and they always remind me of summer.

The papers are from my stash.  I used black pearls to accent two corner.  Sparkle and shine were added by using two think pieces of white glittery ribbon.  The black butterfly finishes it off with just the right touch.

It's A Hello Birthday Paint Can

Hi everyone! I'm excited to have a fun new project to show you, today.  I've been dying to post this for everyone to see, but had to wait till the recipient received it, since it was a birthday gift. Are you ready to see something different from me?! How about checking out this altered paint can that I made for my friend, Sheila, for her birthday?! She loves hello Kitty, so I knew it was perfect for her!

I bought an empty paint can from Home Depot and covered it with scrapbook papers in polka dots and stripes.  The color theme is red, white and blue.  I used Hello Kitty stickers, as well as some Hello Kitty digital clip art, colored with Promatkers, to decorate the can.  The middle of the can has a band of red glittered ribbon. I've used sparkly shiny ribbon pieces in red, white and blue, to tie on the handles.

To decorate this paint can, I incorporated the themes of Birthday, Girlie and Friendship to make the perfect gift for a wonderful friend. It also reminds me of my childhood, since I loved Hello Kitty as a child. I'd have loved to have received this, as a kid, wouldn't you?!

I filled the can with lots of Hello Kitty goodies for Sheila, including a Hello Kitty watch!

You Know You're Old When.....



Hey there! Happy Thursday! It's Oldie But A Goodie Thursday, here at Catch The Bug! Whoo hoo! Are you ready to see us bring some of those older images from Bugaboo Stamps back into the spotlight? I hope so because we have some for you and the creations are fabulous!  Check out Catch The Bug for more Oldie But Goodie inspiration!

I went with a masculine birthday card, for my Oldie But Goodie inspiration, today. I've used the image and sentiment set, Gus Birthday - Rocking Chair, by Bugaboo Stamps. The papers are new, from a new stack I bought at Hobby Lobby.  I went with blues, grays and browns - Seems to be the perfect masculine color scheme, doesn't it? The blue pearls are from my stash.  (Who says pearls can't be masculine?!) The glittered ribbon is from my stash. I think it goes perfectly on this card - Gives it a slight touch of sparkle.

My First Lacy Sunshine Card!



Hello everyone! I'm here, today, to show you my first card using  a Lacy Sunshine digi stamp! Whoo Hoo! Love these stamps! So cute!

Today, I'm using  the digi stamp called Gemma Gumdrop, which is the freebie for participating in this week's challenge.  She is colored with Promarkers.

My card layout uses the sketch at Feeling Sketchy. All papers are from my stash.  Flowers are layers and are by Prima and Recollections. I used the branch punch, from Martha Stewart to punch the greenery.  The blue were used to add sparkle and shine.  I used blue sheer ribbon, tied in a bow, to finish her off.

This is my first time trying shading on the hair, in ages.  What do you think?

Thought You Could Use A Lift



Hello everyone! I hope you're all pulling out of the winter blues and starting to think of Spring! I think I've got  Spring Fever! It was sooo nice last weekend, and I spent a lot out time outside enjoying the nice weather.  Of course, it didn't matter that I had tons of stuff inside I needed to do - That all went out of my head once the sunshine and warm temps were here! All I could think about was finally having a break form the cold and snow.

Today is Oldie but Goodie Thursday, at Catch The Bug and, as usual, we're featuring some of the older images. Bringing them back into the spotlight to remind you how many awesome images there are to choose from in the Bugaboo Stamps store.

For more Oldie But Goodie inspiration, check out Catch The Bug - Lots of creative genius from some of my other teammates!

Anyway, I finally made it into my craft room to do some crafting and this is what I came up with for you. This card is perfect for anyone going through breast cancer, or who's just feeling down and could use a little pick me up.

My card, today, uses the image and sentiment set, Some Support - Use A Lift, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I used this fun new paper I bought, from Stampin Up.  The blue polka dotted buttons are from my stash. I threaded them with some green and white twine, to bring out the green and white in the umbrella paper.

Happy Keester




Well, finally, Spring decided to finally show up and bring us some warm temperatures - And just in time for Easter. I was beginning to think the warm temps were never going to show up, but I'm so glad they have!

Anyway, we're back today with a new challenge for you at Catch The Bug. We're challenging you to an ABC challenge - Anything of your Choice, Bling and Cardstock. This is an easy one, folks, so get our your crafting supplies and start creating! We want to see lots of players this week!  Remember, there are awesome digi prize packs up for grabs from Bugaboo Stamps!

Check out Catch The Bug if you need more creative inspiration!

Since Easter is tomorrow, I just had to make an Easter card, for today's challenge.  MY project uses the image and sentiment set,  Gus Happy Keester, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. This is a new fold for me - A vertical step card.  It was very simple to do and I love how it turned out.  I wanted a masculine Easter card, so I went with mostly green and yellow, and green dots for my bling. My "A" (Anything of your choice) for this challenge is the sentiment.
