A Bugaboo Birthday

I have a fun birthday card to share today!  Summertime in my family is jam packed with birthdays so I definitely want to work up my stash a bit!  I made this card for Bugaboo Stamps Catch the Bug Recipe Challenge (buttons, twine and sentiment)
I had a lot of fun putting this card together.  I just love this image - Theodore Birthday Sign.  I colored it with Copics, added some bakers twine, z flower and a button.  The red background paper is from DCWV the Celebration Stack.  Everything else is from Recollections.

Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #71

Happy Tuesday!  This week over at Die Cuttin Divas we want to see your projects with a summery fruit or vegetable!  I don't know about you but with this HEAT in Michigan my garden has taken off!  I mean it has literally doubled in size in just a few days!  I'm READY for some fresh veggies!  Here is my DT project!!

I went with a CAS card today.  I'll be honest though....I chose the sentiment first and had to find a fruit or veg that was a 'bunch'!    I just love this stamp!  I used Preserves Cartridge for the grapes and D'vine Swirl embossing folder for the background of the card.  I stamped the sentiment (Stamps by Judith) on vellum and heat embossed it.  Added some bakers twine and Peachy Keen faces! 
I hope you decide to play along this week at Die Cuttin Divas for a chance to win a great prize from our sponsor Ginger Snap Scraps!

Another Tuesday Challenge!

You can tell summer has been busy when my posts are down to once a week!  Thankfully my kids like to craft with me so I can get a little time to make some projects!  This week at Die Cuttin Divas we want to see a project with the colors red, orange and yellow....the colors of the sun!  We have Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor and they are offering 7 free digital images as the grand prize!  I am absolutely addicted to Bugaboo stamps!  They have new releases every Tuesday and a different free image every Friday!   I couldn't wait to incorporate one into my project!  Here's what I made :)
I think he turned out adorable!  I chose the image summer duck - ball and colored him with my copics.  I cut him out using a scallop frame from Accent Essentials.  This was the first time I tried to cut an image out with my cricut instead of just making it a square.  The paper is from DCWV The summer stack and the cardstock is Recollections.  I added 3 buttons from OTC and tangerine twine from Ginger Snap Scraps.

I would also like to enter the Catch the Bug Challenge: Stella Says Sketch

Die Cuttin Divas Challenge

Happy Tuesday!  Today is a new day and a new Die Cuttin Divas Challenge!  With Father's Day upon us we are challenged with a 'man card'!  I decided to go with a shape card for this challenge!  I think it turned out great!
I cut the trophy from Sports Mania Cart and welded two shadow images together with my gypsy.  The trophy embellishment and DAD letters are from Sandy Lion that you can get from Circle B Enterprises (our wonderful sponsor this week!!!).  Don't forget to link up your project HERE for a chance to win a prize from Circle B!

Happy Father's Day!

I'm getting a jump start on my Father's Day cards!  I had an idea of how I wanted this card to turn out!  I created it for a few challenges.  First the Peachy Keen Challenge #20 Just Cards.  I also created it for the Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge Father's Day.  And here is what I came up with :)
I think it came out cute!  I'm not thrilled about the crease in the center of the tie but I'm still happy with it!  I constructed the shirt, pocket and tie myself.  I may try to use a tie cut next time.  I cut the glasses from Groovy Times and used the Cornies Assortment from Peachy Keen Stamps.  The brads on the collar are from OTC.
I cut the inside sentiment from Father's Day cartridge since I do not have any Father's Day stamps.  The polka dot paper is from Jillibean Soup!  Thanks for looking!

Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #68

Welcome back to another Die Cuttin Divas challenge!  This week we have a sketch for you!  You can flip it, rotate it, make a card, layout, interpret it how you want as long as you use a die cut somewhere on your project!

Here is the sketch:
and here is what I created!

I think it turned out a little 'fall-ish' but totally how I wanted it to.  I cut the sunflower from Stretch Your Imagination cartridge (one I barely use anymore) and the adhesive pearls are from OTC.   The sentiment is from Studio G as well as the ink.  Be sure to link your project HERE for a chance to win an amazing prize from this week's sponsor Whimsy Stamps!!
