DT Day with Bugaboo Stamps

Pin It
Hi, Sue from Sue's Paper Crafts, Today is my day to show off what I have made with my image from this month's sponsor: Bugaboo Stamps.

I choose this cute little squirrel to work with and I decided to stick to this month's color pallet.

I used chalks to color him then I added a bit of Glazed Dimensions to the hearts and little highlight areas of the acorns. I used Wild Honey Distress Oxide on the edges.
The card measures 5.5" wide x 4.25" tall. I added a piece of fall themed washi tape, a bit of twine and a few pearls to finish the card off.
Please come and join us for this month's color challenge at Connie Can Crop. Only one more challenge after this one.

In N Out Burgers- Miss Kate Day

Pin It

Hello my crafty friends!!

It's Connie Can Crop here and my day to post with  Miss Kate Cuttables!  

But first, did you know that Miss Kate Cuttables gives away a free file every WEEK?
YES, absolutely FREE. So what are you waiting for, head over there and get your free file now!!

Several years ago, my son's school had the In N Out truck come for a fundraiser. I thought what better way to scrapbook this event then with some cut files from Miss Kate. I found the perfect burger and soda. I used a MKC ice cream truck and made it the In N Out truck.And for the logo I used a black and white image from the internet and cut it with my explore.

I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

You Know You're Old...

Pin It
Hello everyone!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards with you today to say, "You know you're old when..."

Boy, we can finish that sentence in any number of ways, can't we?  My card, featuring an image from our sponsor this month, Bugaboo Stamps, offers one way to complete the thought!

For this card, I used the Stella-Rocking Chair image.  Stella is a cantankerous old gal and has no problem in sharing her somewhat tarnished I get older I find some of my opinions are starting to sound like hers!  Time for an attitude adjustment, I think!

To create the focal panel, I imported the image into my design screen and traced around the outside edge.  I welded it into a rectangle so the balloons extend slightly above the rectangle.  Next, I traced around the front balloon and the presents at Stella's feet so I could pop them for added interest.

Stella is matted on a rectangle I filled with digital patterned paper from the Party Time Kit by Amanda McGee.  I added two additional mats of Peach Parfait and Concord Crush before adding all to a base of Cucumber Crush (all retired Stampin' Up cardstocks).  To finish, some Glossy Accents on the balloons and her glasses.

The greeting was color matched to the purple in the patterned paper and printed on a curved banner using the text to path option in my Silhouette.  I matted it on the peach card stock.
Inside, I printed the sentiment in the same purple and double matted before adding.

I can actually relate to this; sad but true.  And there are times when I don't even need to be in a rocking chair to get that sensation!

Have you participated in Connie Can Crop's monthly challenge yet?  You still have the rest of the month, so get crafting!

This month it's a color challenge.  You can make any sort of project you want, just so long as you incorporate these colors:

One winner, picked at random, will win their choice of four digital images (a $12 value) from Bugaboo Stamps.  Visit them at their store to see what they have and check them out on Facebook to see the latest.

I wanted to create a special card for someone that I think doesn't get thanked often enough! Especially with all the crazy stuff happening in our world! This is who we have to thank for helping keep us safe! I don't have any one person in mind...but maybe I will just send it to the local station!

I used a Miss Kate Cuttables SVG file for the Police images and did a print and cut.
The sentiment is cut out from SVG cuts freebie section.
Also used paper and a stamp I had on hand!

Now Please hop on over to my dear friend KIM. I am super thankful for her and all these amazing girls who joined in this hop! And for you, for joining us! Thank you!
