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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Hello, it's new release day at Bugaboo Stamps and we're celebrating Christmas in July at Catch the Bug! This is the newly released Winterbirds, and today's challenge is to use 3 embellishments, 2 designer papers & 1 ribbon/twine.
I coloured the image with copics and added white wink of stella to the snow and white on their hats.
I used glitter paper as one of the deisgner papers and 3 rhinestones as the embellishments.

The card base is real red with a layer of white and a layer of designer paper from Bo Bunny Surprise. The stars were made with die-namics dies. The #1 is from a YNS die. The sentiment was made on my computer and cut out with a YNS word bubble die.
I chose the Sock Monkey and his colours to go along with the sweater I knit for Hayden, I hope he likes it! The pattern I used had a band for a collar, which I made longer, but maybe not long enough because it doesn't fold over very well!

Hello, it's New Release day at Bugaboo Stamps, and this beautiful Curly Hair Sitter is one of this weeks new images! I combined her with the FAB-rosebush bench, and although I say that casually, this really was a learning experience for me, but it was really easy. So if you haven't tried combining and overlapping images you really should give it a try. I used the Tutorial found at Bugaboo stamps, my word program was older so I had to search around a bit for the functions, but I did find them!
I also flipped the little girl to face the other opposite way to make it more balanced.
I coloured the image with copics and added pink copic atyou spica to the roses & butterfly, and tiny gems to the yellow flowers and butterfly.
The card base is lavendar lace with so saffron embossed with the butterfly embossing folder. The butterfly was made from glitter paper with a SU punch.
Hello, it's the first Saturday of the month, so this weeks challenge at Catch The Bug is Anything Goes! For today's card I used Ladybug Line from Bugaboo Stamps. Who would want these laydbugs to fly away, they're so cute!
I coloured the image with copics and added a bit of stickles for some sparkle. The card base is real red with a piece of black dotty paper I found in my scrap paper and the green striped paper is from Cosmo Cricket.
The tag was made with a Martha Stewart punch, the sentiment is from SU Honeycomb Hello, and I finished it off with twine.
I've already been to a shower, but I made the baby a sweater so I will include this with the gift when he arrives. So I made the card smaller, it's actually 4.25" square. I coloured the image with copics.
The card base is marina mist, with a layer of white and then dsp in the same colour. I used a word bubble die for the sentiment, and finished it off with some twine!
