Turtle Thanksgiving Card

 Hello and hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  I am here to share a card for the latest Catch the Bug Challenge:  Thankful.

I'm featuring Turtle Thanksgiving from Bugaboo Stamps.  I have a simple layout trying to use up some much older papers.
I've added glaze, popped up the sentiment, and added several die cuts from Little B and My Favorite Things.  I hope you get a chance to join in this week's challenge!  Thank you so much for taking a look.

Bugaboo Teddy Bear Birthday Card

 Hello and happy Saturday!  No big plans this weekend, pretty much like most of 2020 since March, but that's ok.  Actually, I feel like I'm busier now than I ever was before so I doubt I will have a quiet craft filled day.

Anyway, I'm just here to share a card for the current Catch the Bug challenge: Anything Goes.

I think these Teddy Bears from Bugaboo Stamps are just too adorable.  This is supposed to be a masculine/little boy card, even with the bit of sparkle in the paper.

 I added a birthday die cut sentiment inside and added touches of glaze to noses and bugs.

So join in this week if you get a chance for the super easy anything goes challenge.  Thank you for stopping by!

Sakura in March Fairy Card

 Hello!  It's hard to believe it is already November.  Hopefully my internet will be stable enough to get this posted!  I really want to share a beautiful image used for this month's Anything Goes Corrosive Challenge:

This is Sakura in March by Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps and I just adore her face.  I made this for a young lady who graduated high school.

I added a little dimension with the flowers and a few pearls.

That's it from me today.  Thank you for taking a peek at my latest creation.

Pup Birthday Balloons Watercolor card

 Hello all.  Today I'm sharing an older yet still much loved Bugaboo Stamp at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog.  I thought it was perfect for my brother's birthday.

This features Bugaboo Stamp's Pup Balloons.  I added 51 to the center balloon (how old he's turning) and a little glaze.  The background is watercolored and I did a bit better job of flicking some paint on for dimension.  I really like that technique and I believe this is my first successful attempt.

Just a close up to hopefully see the bits of paint and glaze.  That's it from me today.  Thank you for stopping by, I really do appreciate every visit.

This meets the following challenges:  2 Crafty Critter Crazies: Anything Goes, Classic Design Challenge: Anything Goes, Crafty Animals: Anything Goes, and Love to Craft: Anything Goes.

Kimono Portrait CAS Card

 Hello and wow I think it's officially winter??  How did we completely skip fall?  Anyway, once again, I'm back to share a card for the latest Corrosive Challenge: Anything Goes.

 I'm featuring Kimono Portrait from Star Stampz.  I think I missed the mark a bit on the skin color.  This is such an adorable digi so hopefully I can get in a bit of practice and give this another go.  My papers are literally from Japan - a gift that I find hard to part with.

I did not include a sentiment because I really did just want for her to be center of attention.  She's popped up with a few touches of glitter pen.  Other than that, plain and simple.  Join in this month if you can!

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look.

This meets the following challenges:  Crafty Creations: Anything Goes, Digi Choosday: Anything Goes, Through The Craft Room Door: Anything Goes, and Tuesday Throwdown: Anything Goes.

Gnome and Sunshine

Hello.  Today I'm sharing three cards, all the same with different papers.  I'm featuring the Lil Gnome die from Simon Says Stamps, that was gifted to me late last year and I finally have a few cards to share.
The sentiment is from CardzTV Stamps.  Mary has a huge selection of sentiment stamps that stamp so clean and clear.
All the same, just different colors and papers.  The gnome is popped up and the rest of the card is flat and simple.  I only colored the nose on each.

These were inspired by this card from Sandcastle Stamper.  I've always had a thing for gnomes before they became popular.  I had them in my gardens for years and little by little, they went to gnome heaven and I'm now left with none.  Someday I'll find another that speaks to me and joins my garden family.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Stampin Up Cute Fruit and Special Someone

 Hello and happy Hump Day!  I have a quick share today.  A couple cards made using some new Stampin Up Stamps.  I'm not creating much, but for some reason, I'm still looking at catalogs - and couldn't resist getting myself something new.

My first card features Stampin Up's Cute Fruit set.

 I actually purchased this for the banana since that's my favorite fruit.  There are also little smiley faces stamps to put on the fruit that I can't wait to use.  The pineapple is popped up, but basically a rather simple card.

My second card features Stampin Up's Special Someone set.  This is a double stamp sort of set where you stamp the main image (in black) and then the "fur" is a separate solid stamp.

I couldn't handle the flat colored "fur" so I went in with Copics and added a little shading.  The balloon shows the black outline stamp, and the inner red stamp - added a bit of glossy goodness.  I feel I missed the mark on the grass and clouds (hadn't done that in a while and obviously rusty).  I still like the end product for the most part.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look!

I am entering the following challenges:  Crafty Sentiments Designs: Anything Goes, Digi Choosday: Anything Goes, Lemon Shortbread: Anything Goes, and Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes.
