You will always be my forever - Bugaboo new release

Tuesday May 3, 2016
 
It's Tuesday and so it's new release at Bugaboo / Catch the bug..
 

This is the darling new release.... Flower teddy bear.. I thought he would make a nice anniversary card.. but it could be mothers day, birthday, just because. I wanted to make this card bright and cheerful and so used some of my favorite colors. The background black and white paper is from the Amy Tangerine pad and I just stamped the sentiment in the white space then added a piece of scrap green dot paper along with it. I added some swirls that I had laying around and some dots of bling and it's done. I hope you check out the design team and how they made their card using this cute new release image.

Thank you so very much - Creative with Stamps #2

Sunday May 1, 2016

It's a new month and Creative with Stamps has a new challenge.. #2  CAS cards


Challenge #2 CAS


OH my I have not done this technique in like forever... that is coloring the stamp with markers and huffing then applying it to your card stock.. I use to do it all the time before copics.. it really makes for a great effect. But I also got rid of a lot of my tombow pens and or they were dried up. I do like the look and I added the swirl below and took a gel glitter pen and traced over it but it still looks black on the computer..
I hope you play along and you have all month to get your card posted at Creative with Stamps.

May calendar page

Sunday May 1, 2016

Each year a group of us ladies make calendar pages. If you do two months then you get two complete calendars. So I chose May and October. This is obviously the May calendar.. The ladies are mostly in the east end of the USA but Karen and I are in the pacific northwest. So she got me into this quite a few years ago and I love it and look forward to making my page each year. This page I used a left over piece of My favorite thing border die, Tech. Tuesday globe and sentiment dies. I don't know who the stamped sentiment is by.. I used some Stampin up papers and recollection papers.

My cat owns my heart.. Aud Sentiments #154 - animal and sentiment

Thursday April 28 - May 10, 2016
 
Welcome to another challenge at Aud Sentiments.. #154
Animal and sentiment
 

Our sponsor for this card is Imagine That using the image Ice cream girl
 

This is the card I made using the image Ice cream girl... she is so cute letting her cat taste her ice cream.. I used some birds for the background as it's an outdoors looking card. I used my template for the clouds and die cut using stampin up die. The sentiment is from Cottage stamper which I thought went perfect for the theme and image. I hope you play along and remember to add a sentiment to your card so we can see it.. Have fun.
