So for my card I thought I would do a CAS card. I stamped the monster from Simon Says and colored him/her with copics. I then added a piece of Washi tape for him/her to stand on.. I added a strip of colorful Washi tape down the left side. I then embossed the Taylored Expressions sentiment on dark blue card stock and used SS speech bubble and navy blue card stock and die cut the sentiment out.  CAS.. bata bing bata boom..  done

Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter


I am using the image called Urban/Modern boy.. I thought he looks like he's out hiking so I used October Afternoon papers. I used Lawn Fawn grass die, Simon Says mound die. I fussy cut the image out and colored with copics. I added a little Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to his lens and back of his phone.  Last month hubby and I took a trip to visit my daughter.. I heard this sentiment a lot.. LOL. they thought it was funny and obviously brought back childhood memories. I used My favorite things banner die to cut it out. I thought it looked like a post.

In my opinion PC stands for - Bugaboo New Release kinda

Tuesday September 18, 2018
 
Welcome to New Release (kinda) at Bugaboo
Check out the design teams creations at Catch the bug.
 
 

This is an oldie image that no one has used for some time and with Jodie still working on the store she thought it best to show the fun cards that can be made with this image.  She's CCPC.. Crabby Cathy PC is her name.. I used some scraps from Basic Gray and Teresa Collins and just pieced a background. I then colored the image with copics. The top left hand corner looked so bare so I cut it off and used Washi tape to tape it down so there was some texture to it.

Hello Friend - Always Fun Challenge #76

Monday September 17, 2018
 
Hello and welcome to another challenge at
Our theme for this week is FALL COLORS
 
 
Awhile back ..quite awhile back I created a bunch of background pieces on glossy card stock using Ranger Oxide inks. Smooshing and letting it dry then buffing off the dull to get the glossy back.. Well with the theme being fall colors I decided to use this one. I then took Stampin up inks, stamps and dies and created the leaves. I used My favorite things hello die and cut three layers of white and one of black.. as I was trying to add the black it just wasn't lining up as I wished so I offset it so the white showed.. Got rid of the headache of trying to line them. I then stamped Simon Says friends and using Zig markers colored in the letters. I used Ranger ink to go around the piece to distress the edges. I then layered the leaves and sentiment. I added some Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to some of the leaves and hello. I finished with some sequins.  I like this card BUT I am not READY for FALL!!
