It's Tuesday and it's new release at Catch the bug http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com/ and today is the prim angel. Fun little guy/gal to color and I like making small cards so kept it small. That's one thing I like about digi's is that you make it the size you want not the size the stamp is. Now don't get me wrong that I don't like stamps/rubber because I have a craft room full of them but it's just nice to be able to size the digi's for when you just need that smaller image of the certain image. Any how I love the bright colors of this little one.

Saturday November 26, 2011 sketch challenge at Unscripted Sketches http://unscriptedsketches.com/

I decided to turn the sketch and this is what I came up with. I know DH said he did not care for this as he does my others something was just off.. I like when I hear that but then again I don't but I have to agree to some degree.. I love the image (catch the bug Santa http://www.bugaboostamps.com/ ) but I think it's the other papers.. I don't know ..maybe I'm just tired of making Christmas cards and he's tired of seeing them..
Any how I sure hope you don't let me discourage you and you take some time to make a card/layout/some project using the sketch above and posting your card on Unscripted Sketches site. http://unscriptedsketches.com/

Friday November 25, 2011

Well I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.. and today you got into some nice elastic waistband pants and got to veg all day and cyber shop... We went to my sons home which he lives a couple hours away unless you try to go on a holiday then it doubles the time.. I don't know how I lived in the big city for so many years.. I sure am spoiled living in the country and small town life. Although I did see some stores up there that we don't have here. By my sons they put in a Hobby Lobby.. Only time I have ever been in one is in Missouri when I have visited and that is about every 10-15 yrs..and I loved it.. that does not cut it in my book.. All in all it was a great time and the usual 2.5 hr drive home so that was nice. I did not make it out for black Friday. I never have tried it and after seeing the news today I don't see myself ever doing it.. how crazy some can get.

Well I decided to make some cards today for upcoming design shots and one for four challenges. This is Sean one of the bug brats by Catch the bug http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com/

With the cold and rainy days I'm back in the craft room making cards.. I have a lot to do for DT sketches coming up but wanted to get a few cards done that I can use now for challenges. I saw a chance to do black and white challenge and knew exactly what image I wanted to use. Took a few tries to get the layers so that the butterfly stood out but also make it pleasing and layered. I love dies and it was fun to put a lot of them to use for this layout.

Catch the bug challenge http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com/ It's in the pocket..pocket card. I am excited to see what you all come up with..

OK this is a new one for me but oh how it was fun to make this pocket. I saw a tutorial on how to make and fold it. It does unfold if need be but not necessary. I glued the flower and leaves on the front so mine will not open. You can see the next photo down the card that is tucked inside.. Isn't Stella a hoot.. What a sassy old broad. The card inside is a regular 4.25 x 5.5 in size. I like this idea and good use of some of those thinner designer 12x12 papers.. (of course you cut it down to size but you do need 2- 12 inches strips )

TIP: when you have a digi (or any stamped image) and your paper is too small for the die try to line it up best you can to make it even and cut it out anyhow - you might like the different cut you get.. worse thing is you'd just have to print out the image again or stamp it.

Wednesday November 9, 2011

Well it's Wednesday at Catch The Bug Tutorial http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com/ I am the guest designer for Oct/Nov and this is my highlight spot.. Making this darling little flower.. I hope you give it a try.

challenges: hand stamped #92- over the top http://handstampedsentiments.blogspot.com/
flutter by - friendship http://flutterbywednesdays.blogspot.com/
stamp royalty #97 photo inspiration http://www.stampinroyalty.blogspot.com/
top tip tuesday -#59 anything christmas http://toptiptuesday.blogspot.com/ with a tip
TIP: If you can't find a flower to go with your card - make your own..see my tutorial

I chose three punches, you can also cut out circles, I choose to use two large, three middle size and two small circles.. but you can use more or less. It's your flower. It's best to use a good card stock or designer paper. Sometimes the lighter weight will rip when you wet them.

with water I mist the pieces and scrunch them up being careful not to tear. Also some card stocks run so scrunch the lighter colors first then move on to the darker colors so they don't bleed.

open carefully and dry with heat tool. When fully dry if you want you can take a distress tool and go around the edges.

I stack the largest, then middle circle ending with smallest and with piercing tool punch hole in center to add brad

At this time you can adhere to your card OR you can scrunch the flower

I start with the smallest and scrunch around the brad, then next layer and next and next till you come to the bottom circle.

then carefully open the flower and scrunch to desired shape. Now adhere to your card. I love these flowers for masculine cards as they are not frilly. If you use the designer paper for the masculine card your making it works out great. I think you will enjoy the simplicity of this flower. Changing the brad will also give a different look to the flower. I hope you give it a try.

This card is for the Progressive challenge at Crafters Digital Art Center ... I know I said that the last card I added the elephant with presents was the last one..but they decided if you were done there was another you could enter and so I went for it. I love the soft colors.. dear hubby said it just doesn't have a pop of color kind of bland.. but I said I thought it needed to be soft so I went for the soft colors. I guess I could of made the die cut forever a little darker as seeing it here it is outstanding as it is in real life but take my word for it it is darker and stands out more in real.. I was happy with it. I wanted a ribbon on it but just not the room and if I made the digi smaller you'd loose too much from the image. No matter what I think it came out pretty cute. tag for this is cdacpc6,margaret kieser

this card is for the challenge at Ladybug crafts ink -love and marriage http://ladybugscraftsinkchallengeblog.blogspot.com/

I am so happy getting more Christmas cards done and the Halloween cards are done.. Give me awhile I'll feel same about Christmas but for now I am glad to get more done. This cute little image is from Catch the bug digi http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com/ I think shes so cute. So simple and yet fun to color.
This card is for the challenges at:
1) paper pretties pwc178 sketch http://paperprettiesblog.blogspot.com/
2) play date cafe #106 -pink/gray/yellow http://theplaydatecafe.blogspot.com/
3) paper shelter #38 christmas http://thepapershelter.blogspot.com/
4) top tip tuesday #58 - make your own background & tip http://toptiptuesday.blogspot.com/

TIP: when making your background and it looks a little bare in places take a matching pen and try to fill. When I was stamping the string of stars there was a long line that did not have the little square part to attach the star, so I took a black pen and drew in the little rectangles and then stamped the star.. Can you tell where I did it? It is viewable ; )
