Lego Movie Inspired Birthday!

 Hello, my Nephew Jack just turned 11 and we got him some new lego from the Lego Movie so I decided to make him a card and treat box to go along with the theme!

 I couldn't find anything that really went with the movie, so I came up with this Bad Cop on my own! I used black and daffodil delight. I hand drew most of it, and my new white uni-ball pen worked beautifully (I'm still shocked...I had no luck with my last one, maybe it was a dud!) . The glass lenses were made with silver paper and the wing of the 2-step bird punch, I just rounded it out with scissors.
 and this is the other side, with the scribbled on face, this side was easy! lol
This is the card I made, I loved this card by Joanne James, so I pretty much cased it! Jack seemed to really like the card and the treats!

Have a Great Day!

Butterfly Basics Birthday Card & Treat!

 Hello, this is the card and curvey keepsake box I made for my stepdaughter for her birthday. I loved this card by Jenn Brum, I pretty much copied it but changed the colours, I also added the vellum piece behind the butterfly that I coloured with copics.
 I also made this lovely little Curcy Keepsake treat holder, which was also a case from Erica B Cerwin you can see here! I stamped the box with the Distressed Dots background stamp.
Not a great photo, but this is the two together!

Have a Great Day!

FMS197, Baby Bumblebee!

Hello, I made this card for this weeks Freshly Made Sketch Challenge FMS197. I love how the Baby Bumble Bee turned out. I stamped on white cardstock with memento tuxedo black, then coloured with Y17 and Y15 copics. For the wings, I coloured around the black lines with a Quickie glue pen then added dazzling diamonds glitter.

Have a Great Day!

ABC, Crafting Nut Large Die Holder!

 Hello, it's Anything But A Card day on the Catch The Bug Blog, and it's my turn to share a fun project! This wasn't my idea, I found it on pinterest and you can see the original post and measurements here on Sam Donald's Blog!

For my project today, I used the Crafting Nut from Bugaboo Stamps. I coloured the image with copics, and cut and and layered with the oval/scallop nesties. The sentiment comes with this image as well!
 I have a big container for my dies, but it doesn't fit the larger SU thinlet dies, so this project was perfect for storing my bigger dies.
Here's a close-up of the image and sentiment.

Now is the time to buy the Bugaboo Image's you've been waiting for, all Bugaboo Stamps are 50% off til the end of July!

Have a Great Day!

Freebie Friday, Beach Frog!

Hello, it's Freebie Friday time at Bugaboo Stamps, and this weeks Freebie is this Beach Frog! I coloured him with copics.

The card base is white, with a piece of marina mist cut with the striped scallop thinlits die, which always reminds me of waves. The designer paper on the side is from Bo Bunny-barefoot & bliss. I popped the image up and used a YNS die to make the sun.

Make sure to get your freebie at Bugaboo Stamps, and check out the Catch The Bug Blog to see more samples made using this cute little Beach Frog!

Have a Great Day!

OBG, Puppy Pile!

Hello, It's Oldie but Goodie day at Catch The Bug and today I'm sharing the adorable Puppy Pile from Bugaboo Stamps.

I coloured the image with copics, and added dazzling diamonds glitter to the whispy bits. This is a Tent Topper style card, I hadn't made one for a while so figured it was time.

The card base is midnight muse, with a layer of designer paper from My Minds Eye-out of the blue. I finished it off with some ribbon and a bone shaped pet charm made with die-namics.

Make sure to stop by the Catch The Bug Blog to see more samples using Oldie But Goodies.

Have a Great Day!

Bugaboo CIJ Freebie Friday, Rudolph!

Hello, it's Freebie Friday time at Bugaboo Stamps and the last day of our Christmas in July Celebration at Catch The Bug!

This weeks freebie friday is Rudolph from Bugaboo Stamps. I used him to decorate this little gift bag I made. I used the Memorys r us gift bag maker to make this bag out of designer paper. 
I coloured Rudolph with copics and added stickles to his nose.

I cut the fishtales myself, and used a YNS snowflake border die for the snowflake strip. The top piece was made with the SU decorative label punch and I finished it off a mini clothes pin and some red cording!

Please join in our challenge and upload your creation to the Catch The Bug Blog
