Panda Circle

Hello all and hope you are having a good day.  Today I'm sharing a quick card for the latest Papercraft Business Challenge:  Circle or Anything Goes.

This features an adorable Doodle Pantry panda.  Doodle Pantry is no longer open but I still like revisiting my stamp collection.
I consider this quick since I used a pre-colored image and everything else was die cut.  The image is popped up for dimension and I added on a few sequins.

So that is my quick card and short post.  Play along this month if you get a chance!  Thanks for stopping by.

Birthday Chicken Animal Kingdom

Hello and happy Tuesday.  So, this year, I have attempted to use my Cricut cartridges more.   So far I've used Nifty Fifties a couple times, and Tinkerbell.  That's not quite the self goal I was going for.  But I'm not giving up just yet!

So today I'm featuring a card using Animal Kingdom cricut cart.

My Aunt loves and raises chickens, so I thought it was appropriate for her birthday.  I cut out all the chicken parts in white and colored the blue and yellow parts with copics and added shading.  I do feel this is much cuter in real life and there is plenty of dimension with the different layers.

Anyway, just sharing that I am still attempting my Cricut cart personal goal!

Thanks for stopping by.

Winter Christmas Pup

Hello and hope you are having a wonderful Saturday!  Today is the start of Christmas in July at Catch the Bug blog, featuring Bugaboo Stamps.

This week will be loaded with lots of inspiration and challenges.  There are lots of movies for inspiration, so can you guess what my creation is based off of?
Yup, Charlie Brown.  This was actually quite difficult for me especially since I'm not one to really think outside the box.
I added a bit of glaze and popped up just the head portion of my Winter Puppy Dog for dimension.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up, and of course a few sequins.

So keep an eye on the Catch the Bug Blog all week for lots of challenges and prizes.

This meets the following challenges:  Jingle Belles: Rustic Glam, ABC Christmas: O is for Ornament, Creative Moments: Anything Goes, and The Male Room: Christmas in July (for males).

Hot Dog Birthday Card

Hello and happy Hump Day!

Did you know that today is National Hot Dog day?  Well, it is.  We have this great little hole in the wall called Dog House (of course) that is a local favorite.  Best chili cheese dog in the world!  They have 5 tables, so sometimes you make new friends over lunch.

Anyway, to celebrate this day, I created:
My big brother has a big day coming up.  Yup, the Big Five Zero.  I can't believe how fast time flies, and really, it doesn't seem like we are really getting older.  It's like my head thinks we are in our 30's.  But of course my body is screaming like it's 90 most days.

I'm featuring Mini Set Boy Balloon by Bugaboo Stamps with a computer generated sentiment.  I added quite a bit of glaze, since I couldn't put sequins or pearls on a "boy" card.  I cut the 50 a few times and glued together to make the numbers thick, and added pop dots all around so there's different layers.

That's it for today.  I thank you for looking and hope you get a chance to have a hotdog!

Goofy Squirrel Birthday Card

Hello and hope you are having a wonderful day.  A couple cards back, I admitted that I hadn't made my baby's birthday card.  Her birthday was months ago.  Well, I finally got around to putting something together for her:

I usually pick something that represents them (a girl, a sport, a theme, etc), but this year I asked what Bit wanted on her card and she said a squirrel.  Ummm, ok.  I wasn't aware she liked squirrels.  Come to find out, that is currently one of her favorite animals.  So my card features Goofy Squirrel from Bugaboo Stamps.

I added a touch of glaze, popped up the acorns and arrow, and cut the 7 a few times and glued together to make a thicker number.  I copied Lisa Lynn's layout, and the sentiment is from a Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin kit.

Thanks for taking a look at my latest and have a wonderful day.

Purple Mermaid Wish Big Card

Hello and hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  It was a good time for me to catch up on a few things I've been wanting to do around the house.  We have been traveling a lot lately, and we finally have a couple months before our next trip.  It really makes me appreciate my home life.

For today, I would like to share a card for the latest Corrosive Challenge Blog: Anything Goes.

Since I've had such limited time for crafting, I made a fairly simple card.  I'm featuring Thessa from Lee Ann's World on Etsy.  I was going for monochrome so I created my background on 110lb white by putting down some copic ink on acetate and adding a bit of alcohol, then I flip the cardstock onto the acetate (I find this is cleaner than flipping the acetate onto the cardstock).  I made my background a bit too flat, so I dropped plain alcohol on the paper which made the water like effect.

My sentiment was made using individual alpha stamps and I messed up by not putting the "BIG" more in the right corner.  Well, I tried.  And overall, the card is still pretty cute IRL and I will send this along to a mermaid lover.

Join in this month if you get a chance.  Always a favorite challenge, and it runs for the entire month.

This meets the following challenges:  Through the Craft Room Door: Anything GoesGet Creative: Monochrome, Challenge Up Your Life: Vitamin Sea, and My Time to Craft: Seaside.
