Bugaboo Freebie, Beauty Butterfly!

Hello and happy Friday! I have a great Freebie to show you from Bugaboo Stamps! This is Beauty Butterfly, it comes with both the sentiment and the butterfly image.

I coloured the butterfly and little bits on the sentiment with copics. The card base is mint macaroon with a layer of crisp cantelope and then some designer paper I found in my scrap bin!

I cut the sentiment out with circle dies and backed it with a Labels Nine die, this piece was also embossed with the swiss dot embossing folder. Then I popped up the sentiment circle and the butterfly circle.

I also used this weeks Tuesday Morning Sketch TMS#343

Make sure to stop by the Catch The Bug Blog to see more wonderful samples using this weeks Freebie.

You can get your Freebie in the Bugaboo Stamps Store.

Have a Great Day!

Bugaboo New Release, Sign It Birthday Critters!

Hello, it's New Release time at Bugaboo Stamps, and today I'm using the New Sign It Birthday Critters. I coloured the image with copics. I had this scrap designer paper on my desk from a previous project, so I decided to use it up and go with these colours which I think are more masculine!

The card base is black, with a layer of crumb cake that I embossed on the top with the Happy Birthday embossing folder. The Sentiment is from SU Perfect Pairings.

Make sure to check out the Catch The Bug Blog for more samples using this new image!

You can find all the new Bugaboo Stamps here!

Have a Great Day!

OBG, Heart Cats!

Hello, it's Oldie But Goodie day on the Catch The Bug Blog, and today I've used Heart Cats from Bugaboo Stamps! This is a great image to use if you've always wanted to colour a striped cat but were afraid to try! I started with E49 and coloured over the stripes that are already on the image and then continued to decrease with E47, E44 etc just adding a bit of each on the outside of the previous colour until I got to E42 and then I coloured in the center used it to help blend the previous colours.

The card base is riding hood red, the designer paper and pink are from Recollections.

I also used this weeks Sketch Saturday #409
