Day 6 Catch the bug Birthday Bash

Thursday January 18, 2018
 
Welcome to Day 6 of our 8th birthday bash at Catch the bug
 
Thursday is Oldie but Goodie.. and our theme for today is a recipe:
KRAFT, RIBBON AND BOLD COLORS
 


This is my card using the image Birthday Penguin Tall Cake. (to me the cupcake is at the top) I used Kraft for the base and found this awesome multi color dp. I also have this bright orange/yellow and red/orange ribbon. It's really bright..
I colored the image with copics and cut the image out. I added a small piece of ribbon for the penguin to stand on. I used an old thick tag die from Tim Holtz and cut out this small tag. I stamped the Simon Says sentiment and added some twine and attached it to the ribbon. I then added Nuvo drops in different colors.

Welcome back to another great 2 week challenge at
 Aud Sentiments #195 and our theme is ANYTHING GOES
 
 
We have a new.. to us.. sponsor We are 3 digi shop

 
I am using the image called HEART AND HOME.. we had some sentiments to chose from so I chose Get Well.. The sign came with HOME on it but I just cut out a similar plaque and colored it so it looked like wood and when I printed out the Get Well. I made sure it was small and then I cut around it and adhered it to the wood plaque.  I colored the bird with copics and colored pencils. A added my clouds and cut the image out with a My Favorite Things stitch die. I added some twine and Stampin up leaves and a pearl. I added glossy accents to the eyes and heart.

Day 5 Catch the bug Birthday Bash

Wednesday January 17, 2018
 
Welcome to Day 5 of our 8th Birthday Bash at Catch the bug..
 
Today's theme is HUMOR ME WITH CUPCAKES
create a funny card that includes cupcakes
 
 
This is my funny card and sentiment.. I used the image Sweet Bird  I colored the image with copics  and added some grass and since it was a tall thin image I decided to add some clouds I used a Taylored Expressions and My Favorite Things cloud dies. I thought about cutting them off but once I laid it down on the card base I liked having them fill in that empty space.. Before I put the image down I used Ranger ink and added just a hint of color so the base wasn't so stark white.  I looked through my chicken stamps and found this sentiment from Paper Pretties so I stamped it and cut the Happy and Birthday apart once it was stamped so it would be a better fit.

Love - Inspiration Destination #142

Wednesday January 17-30, 2018
 
Welcome to 2018. We're a couple weeks into the new year and I  hope it is still bringing all that is good into your life. The stamp I chose today on my card is so I can remember these positive thoughts and have it bring that into my life.. It's a very large background stamp so some of the words are cut off but there are still enough for you to see and understand why I love it. 
 
We have a new challenge at Inspiration Destination  #142
Wet or Dry Embossing
 
So break out those holiday craft items and put them to use. I am sure there's new embossing powder/stamps/folders somewhere in you hands reach.. LOL

I got this stamp a few months back but haven't used it yet so broke I it out cause I love when the background is all embossed words. I embossed with white powder. Since it's about what I love about you I added the "Love" die and layered it four times to make it sturdy. I added a couple flat sequins and it's done.. Really a quick and easy card to make. The products are Simon Says.  I really like the black and white look.. well the Love is a very light silver shimmer..

Bee strong - Sunny Day Crafting #3

Wednesday January 17, 2018
 
The Yellow team is back with another fun challenge at
Sunny Day Crafting #3  our new challenge the theme is
"C" is for COLOR IT
 
I started my card by stamping the Gerda Steiner bee and sentiment. I colored the image with copics and used my cloud template for the sky and Ranger ink. I added some glitter to the wings. I then used a Stampin up stitched circle die and My Favorite Things speech bubble. I then used an embossing folder for the green card stock and added some white gel pen dots just to dress it up some. I didn't want to take away from the image but the embossing was so bland. I used Quick Quote ink to distress the bubble die.
