OBG, Pig - Super Pig!

Hello, it's Oldie But Goodie day at Catch The Bug, and today I have a card made with Pig-super pig from Bugaboo Stamps.

I coloured the image with copics, and cut him out with circle dies. The card base is midnight muse, with a layer of white that I added punched stars to in real red, daffodil delight and midnight muse. Then I embossed the white piece with the square lattice embossing folder.

I used this weeks Sketch Saturday #375

FMS200, Hipster-potamus!

Hello, I made this for this weeks Freshly Made Sketch FMS200. I used the Hipster-Potamus set from Avery Elle...love this one!

I stamped the hippo twice onto textured grey cardstock. I shaded in some ares with copics, and cut the head out of one image and added it on top of the whole image which I also cut out. I stamped the glasses onto the hippo, and also onto a piece of acetate with stazon ink. Then I cut the glasses out and added them with a few dots of quickie glue pen around the edges. The hat was stamped onto a scrap piece of cardstock then added with glue dots.

The card base is black and the bottom is dp from Recollections. The top is white embossed with the cloudy day embossing folder.

Have a Great Day!

ABC, ipod Treat Holder & Tag!

 Hello, the Bugaboo Team is back from our 2 weeks holidays, and I do believe my mojo is recharged! 
It's Anything but a card day at Catch The Bug, and today I'm showing you the ipod treat holder I made. I had seen something similar on pinterest and decided to make my own pattern.
For my tag I used Johnny-music from Bugaboo Stamps. I colored him with copics and used a corner punch to make the tag.
 Here's a side view, the headphones were made with a 1.75" circle punch and 1-3/8" (if I remember right!) I embossed the smaller circle with the swiss dot embossing folder and the black strip connecting them is 3/4" wide.
 Here's a close up of the tag, Johnny-music is so cool!
This is the template I made to make the ipod treat box. I started with a piece of pacific cardstock 8.5" x 6".
score at 1/2", 3.5", 4.5" and 7.5 then turn and score at 1 inch. Fold on score lines, and cut along the bottom as shown. I used a Spellbinders Rectangle die for the window, it was the second from largest die in the small set. 

Finished the box measured 5 inches tall by 3 inches wide and 1 inch deep. For the front I used circle punches and a white uni-ball pen for the menu and markings.

Have a Great Day!

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!
