sending a SUMMER hello - Bugaboo Free Friday

Friday June 22, 2018
 
It's time for another Free Friday image from Bugaboo.. You can see the design teams fun creations over at Catch the bug.
 
 
This is the fun Free Friday image called BEACH DUCK.. I used a My favorite things stitched die to cut the image out. Quite some time back I created a bunch of background papers by using Ranger Oxide inks on glossy card stock and smooshing. Once you let it dry you just buff the page and it turns out nice an glossy again. Well digging through my stash I found this piece which I thought worked great for water. So I adhered to the card base. I then used copics to color the image. I added Spectrum Noir around the sun area. I added glossy accents to the drink, water in the image and glasses. I used black Stazon ink to stamp the Simon says sentiment.

It's time for another fun challenge at Aud Sentiments #206
and our theme for the next two weeks is
ANYTHING GOES + SENTIMENT
 

Our sponsor for this challenge is We are 3
 
This is my card. I chose a gelli plate piece I created years ago by using acrylic paints and bubble wrap. The image I chose from We are 3 is called "Seaside anchor". We also got some tags that we could use. I chose this one saying "sending a happy hello".. I colored the image with copics. I then added some gems to the flowers. I fussy cut the tag out and added Stampin up gold cording tied in a bow. I used Lil inker stitch die to cut the image out. I added this to the background paper on a piece of craft foam for some dimension.  This is a very pretty image I love the feminine feel.

I've always looked up to you - Sunny Day Crafting #25

Wednesday June 20, 2018
 
We have a new challenge at Sunny Day Crafting #25
and the theme is ANIMALS... ANY ANIMAL
(we are changing our theme for the rest of the year to be any animal.. so lets break out those fun animal images and play along..)
 
 
I wanted to create a card with giraffes so I chose My favorite things giraffes.. and I used the bird from Tech. Tuesday.. I stamped the giraffes and sentiment and leaves and colored with copics. I then decided I needed something else so that is when the bird came in. So I did one above the lettering and then one on the giraffes back. I used some Ranger ink and a brush to give some blue to the sky. I used Rubber seed grass stamp and some Stampin up ink. I then used a copic pen and added some brown for the ground and a few more blades of grass.

Wednesday June 20, 2018
 
Hello and hope you're having a great June and enjoying your June weather.  Are you getting ready for a vacation or on one? I hope you have time to craft..
The theme is ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES + CHRISTMAS
 


I was going through my rack of dies and saw this fire place die from Taylored Expressions.. I had to use it.. So I used some Quick Quote scraps and die cut the pieces out.. I used some Ranger ink to distress the edges. I loved this piece when it was put together.. Then I looked at more scraps an used the dotted dp for the flooring. I used this Simon Says dp I got a long time ago and used it for the wall paper look. (I used this earlier paper June 6th)..  I then stamped the Paper Trey ink sentiment and added the wreath from Little B. I stamped the Mama Elephant images and colored with Zig water color brushes and added them to the card. I used a little stickles on the fire.  I hope I have inspired you to make a Christmas card and join in the challenge.

Happy Father's Day - Jeffrey

This card is for my son Jeffrey who has given us 3 grand children..
This card is petty much the same as I did for my card yesterday but using a different color MME paper.  The stamp set is Sugar Pea designs. I used Stampin up ink for the argyle above and below the sentiment. The bling is from Close to my heart. The die is also SU.  I like the colors and the simplicity but masculine feel.

Congratulations - Bugaboo New Release

Tuesday June 19, 2018
 
Hello everyone.. We have a new image in the store..
(I think it was in the old store)
Bugaboo image is Deacon Grad Sitter..
Check out the design teams creations over at Catch the bug..
 
Just in time for graduations.. I started by creating a large boulder for the grad image to sit on. I colored the image in with copics. I know I have seen senior rocks around where you take a photo of your grad on the rock and there is graffiti on the rock.. Usually in white but I didn't want to make it to in your face so I just did the darker gray and stamped a couple stamps that kinda gave a hint of an image. I then drew in the grassy area behind and drew in some trees. I used my cloud template. So once I was happy with that I colored Deacon Grad sitter with copics. I added a little white gel pen to his hat. I then stamped the Paper trey ink and heat embossed the Congratulations.
