Penguin Snow Globe

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest card.  I recently purchased some Dome shaped shaker pouches from My Favorite Things, so I have been itching to make a shaker card.


I used DS to cut the window on my card front.  I had to weld a rectangle to the bottom of a half circle to get the shape just right.

I used the "Winter Penguin Trio" digital image available at the Bugaboo Store.  I used some sequins and diamond dust glitter for the snow.  I applied some Nuvo Crystal Dots in White Blizzard.  I probably should have used red, the white barely shows up.

If you haven’t checked out the new releases at the Bugaboo Store, what are you waiting for,  there are some wonderful images AND they are 50% off.  Be sure to grab the  Freebie Friday image, there is a new image every week.  Sign up the the newsletter and get free stamp monthly.

Color Inspiration

Today's Catch the Bug Saturday challenge is a color inspiration,

I am featuring Sunflower Vase .

I used an old sketch I found at MFT Sketch challenges.  It's clean and simple, it was perfect for this great image.  

I used my Clarity brushes to add some color to the background.

Thinking of you

Today I am featuring Izzy Thinking, which I thought was perfect when I saw the sketch challenge (link below).


I used PTC on the think bubble and attached it with foam tape.  I couldn't resist adding a few sequins, I really have trouble with plain cards.  I colored Izzy with my Spectrum Noir markers and added a little background color with my brushes and Distress inks.

Challenges:

New Release Tuesday

Hi everyone,

It's Tuesday and time to reveal the new releases at Bugaboo Stamps.  Here is one of the stamps you can purchase all this week for 50% off.  


I did my normal manipulations here and used the stamp a little differently.  It took a little work, but I broke the blocks up so I could follow this weeks sketch entered below.

I used my Distress Oxide ink in Wilted Violet to create my purple background.  The gray splashes are actually "Black Soot", but I guess one out gray when diluted with water.

The trick or treat sentiment is a DS image, I heat embossed it 3 times with clear embossing powder to give it some dimension.  It was really difficult to glue on as small as it is, but I used Tim Holtz Multi Medium and placed a heavy object on top till the glue set.

I added a few black dots with my Nuvo Crystal drops in Ebony.

Happy Craftin!

Twins

It's Saturday, and today's theme is Anything Goes at Catch the Bug Challenge.  I am featuring "Benny Blocks".

As you can see, I did a little work with them in Sure Cuts A Lot 4 to remove them from the blocks so I could showcase them as twins.


I really like the way they came out, like they are peeking through a window.  I am currently in love with plaids, this color combo really worked well.  I created my word "twins" in SCAL 4 also, so I could create a shadow layer for an offset.  The font used was "Watermelon".

Challenges:


Thanks for stopping by, please check out all the wonderful stamps over at the Bugaboo store.

Until next time,

Happy Stamping!
