Bugaboo Birthday Bash: Color Challenge + Sprinkles



Good morning! It's Day 7 of Bugaboo's Birthday Bash. Not only is it Freebie Friday, we have a Color Challenge for you, plus we would like to see Sprinkles! (Because who doesn't like sprinkles?) Here is the color palette:


I have to say that I love the color palette, but I thought it would be fun to go with an all white card and incorporate the colors into the image only. The adorable chick is colored with pencils and I've added a generous "sprinkling" of glitter to her eyelids, feathers, and balloon. For a bit of texture I've used textured vellum for layering, along with grosgrain ribbon.

Here's a close-up:

Oldie But Goodie



Good morning! It's Oldie But Goodie Thursday at Catch the Bug and I've made a card to send to my daughter at college...I have always called her "my little monkey"!

The image is colored with pencils and I've added glitter to the balloon. I went clean and simple with the layout using just a strip of patterned paper. Here's a close-up:

Oldie But Goodie



Good morning! It's Oldie But Goodie Thursday at Catch the Bug and I'm using Cat Rat Birthday.

I made this card for my daughter's boyfriend's birthday. His favorite color is green and I knew I wanted it to have an orange cat on it, so I went hunting through my images for the perfect one. (A little background on the "orange cat"....We have an orange cat named Wendel and Carter just loves him! When the kids come home from school for the weekend, playing with Wendel is at the top of the list. It's fun to see the softer side of a young man! I do realize this doesn't really look like a card for a young man, but Carter did understand the "Wendel" connection!) I've colored the image with pencils and restrained myself from glittering it up..lol! I used some birthday themed papers from a 6x6 pad and added a bit of ribbon for embellishing. Here's a close-up:

Catch the Bug ABC



Good morning! It's Anything But a Card Monday at Catch the Bug. I've decorated a sorbetto container and filled it with candy corn. (I went to buy a pint of Ben and Jerry's after work one night and walked out with 2 pints of Talenti...I recommend it! I need to go back for 2 more pints so I can make enough for all my daughter's roommates at school!)

The supplies:


Bobblehead Ghost (one of Jodie's new Halloween images!) is colored with pencils and accented with glitter and googlie eyes, then die cut and mounted with Spellbinders. I adhered a patterned paper band around the container and adhered the image panel over the top. Here's a close-up of the image:

Stella Says Sketch #515



Good morning! Stella has a new sketch for you to try...and it's a good one! I used one of Jodie's adorable new Halloween images for this card; I'll have to say she had me at "the tooth"! Oh my...such cuteness! Here's the sketch:


I've colored the image with pencils; while relaxing and listening to music, coloring is so therapeutic, I enjoyed the process of making this card...from start to finish. Halloween cards are my favorite to make...hands down! I pulled out some of my punches and dies for embellishing; the clouds are cut from felt and the bats are punched from glitter CS. No sentiment like the sketch, but I've added a CS strip to "ground" the card. I love how this one turned out...may have to send it to my daughter at college! Here's a close-up:
