Catch The Bug Photo Challenge

I cut out this fun Stair Step card with cut file #42973 from the Silhouette store.  I embossed the white layers with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder.  Then I created the inside layer using the Silhouette Designer Edition software.  I selected the knife tool to cut out the bottom section of the card.  Then I used the insert function to create a inside layer.  Added a saying and centered it.  Turned on registration marks and printed the page and cut out with my Silhouette Cameo.  Applied Stickles Crystal under the Penguin for the ice.  The cute penguin is a digi image called "Little Penguin Winter Skate" from the Bugaboo store.  Colored the image with PSE, printed the image, and cut out both the image and blue scalloped background with Nestabilities circle and scalloped circle dies.  Attached image to cardbase with pop dots, then added a snowflake ribbon and snowflake button.

Valentine's Day

My hubby is crazy about dogs so I tend to make a lot of cards for him with that theme.  For his Valentine card this year, I used a digi called "Puppy Love Wag Tail" from Bugaboo.  Colored  the image with PSE and cut it out with a Spellbinders circle die.  Embossed pink background layer with "Heart to Heart" Sizzix Texture Plate and my Sizzix Bigkick.  Punched 2 squares and cut in half to form the corners.  Added faux stitching with white gel pen.  Scalloped frame was cut out with my Silhouette Cameo using a file from the "Valentine Backgrounds" set from Miss Kate Cuttables.  Printed saying and cut out with Spellbinders die.  Punched two hearts and added some pearls.  Attached saying with pop dots.

(I selected the row with these 3 Bingo blocks - No designer paper, free, scallop)

I'm bananas for you

I've been making a lot of Valentine's Day cards for the girls at the children's charity, so today I thought I would make some for the boys.  While looking through my stamp collection, I found this fun clear stamp set #11028MC Monkey Honey Pop from Inky Antics.  Used Memento black ink and colored with Copic markers.  Green background layer is embossed with Darice Bamboo folder.  Cut out a few bananas and scattered them on the saying and on the corner of the image.

Happy Valentine's Day

Love this cute little Valentine pup that I found at the Digi Web Studio on line store.

Thought the pups would be perfect to use for the cards for the children's charity.
  Supplies used: Cuttlebug heart blocks embossing folder, Sizzix Big Kick machine,
MS heart punch, ribbon, twine, Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle dies,
white, pink and kraft cardstock.

Warm Wishes

Trying out a new cut file I bought at the Scrappy Dew store.  The file is called Skating Snowmen 2013.  Cut all the colored pieces using Bazzill cardstock.  White cardstock is Neenah 65#.  The blue snowflake print paper is a oldie I found in my stash.  The blades on the skates were too delicate to cut with Bazzill cardstock so I colored them with a silver Sharpie pen.  Tore some white pieces for the snow piles then attached all the pieces to cardbase.  Used pop dots to attach the snowman and the word bubble.  Used a black marker to sketch in the eyes, mouth and buttons on his belly.

Warm winter wishes

Another card made with a precolored digi image from Dearie Dolls.  This is the same digi I used on the card I posted yesterday, but this time I cropped out the little boy from the scene.  I cut out the scalloped borders and image with Nestabilities dies.  Used EK Success snowflake punch and added rhinestones.  Designer paper is called "Quite Contrary - Jack & Jill" by My Minds Eye.

Super Kid

Had some pieces of this fun superhero paper left and thought I would make a card for a little boy at the children's charity.  The paper is called All About Boys by DCWV.  The digi image is called Kidlet Superman from Bugaboo.  I colored him with Copic markers, then cut out image and background with Spellbinders rectangles dies.  Stars were cut out of paper scraps with a Sizzix die.

Just pawsing to say hello

Another card for the children's charity made with a cute doggy digi from a set called I Love My Pet 1.  The set is drawn by Whimsy Primsy and I found it at the Digi Web Studio on line store.  The set is on sale for only a $1.00 and there's tons of cute pups in it.  Cut out image and background layer with Spellbinders dies.  Added a banner saying cut out with my Silhouette Cameo and polka dot ribbon.  Image and banner are mounted to cardbase with pop dots to give the card some dimension.  Designer paper is by Doodlbug.
