Joint Bugaboo Challenges

Hello everyone. Yes, I am back with another project but this time it is a challenge which has combined 2 Bugaboo challenges together. One from the Catch the Bug Challenge and Stella Says Sketch but first onto the card.

04 23 Bug Bloom

As I said this card has come about because of 2 challenges and both from Bugaboo. This first is the Catch the Bug Challenge and this time it was a BINGO challenge

For the BINGO challenge I went with Flower, Bugaboo Image and Stitching. I did faux stitching using a pink pen. And then I used sketch #808 from Stella Says Sketch

It was a lot of fun combining these together I noticed that I didn’t put the sentiment in the same place I hope that this is ok. But I had already coloured and made stamped the sentiment before I saw this challenge, thought that it was still suited. The papers are from another partly used paper pack and I added some Nuvo drops just to add a little sparkle.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. To let me know that you stopped by today please consider leaving a comment or pressing the like button. Before you depart from my blog though I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

ANZAC Day Poster: ANZAC Day Poster for printing.
This 2020 ANZAC is very different. No marches, no parades, no gatherings but we will still remember them. We remember those that have gone before but also that are serving even now.

Until my next post,
🙂 Tracy

Mothers Hold our Hand

Hello everyone, yes I know that the new year has only just started but if you are a crafter and you give your cards to charities especially those who give cards to our troops and others then we need to be crafting ahead of the occasions. So as you can see I have started my Mother’s Day cards for 2020.

01-07-mother.jpg

I have loved this Bugaboo Digital image for years and I use it quite often. And its called Words of an Angel and it is still available 😀 But this card started with the first sketch from Stella Says Sketch – Ready Steady Sketch #801

I coloured in this image with my Copic markers after I had found this wonderful watercolour type paper in my stash from The Paper Mill. I have matted this onto some 125gsm Purple Cardstock and used some of my Love from Lizzi Purple Pin Stripe Mirror Stickers in the medium width. In my stash was also these iridescent purple circles with gold borders so I used these and this finished off my card.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. Before you depart from my blog I would like to leave you with this final thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Enjoy your crafty endeavours.

Snow friend like you

Hello everyone, I don’t see a lot of snow where I live so I love looking at snowglobes. And I really like this one with these adorable critters inside. I thought that this would be perfect for the first day of Bugaboo Holiday Critter Chaos

This card started with the latest sketch from Stella Says Sketch #721

SSS7212019

This background paper has been hanging out in my stash for a while and I thought that this would help with the snow challenge. I kept the colouring of the snowglobe simple using my copics and some light blue Distress Ink colouring as well.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card for the Critter Challenge. Before you depart my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Always move in a forward direction.

Candy Cane Elf

Hello everyone, today I am sharing with you a card that is combining 2 challenges from Bugaboo. One is from the Catch The Bug Challenge blog and the other is the final sketch from Stella Says Sketch for 2019.

12 10 Elf Candy

The image that I have used is Deacon on a Candy Cane. This is an older image from Bugaboo Digital Stamps but it’s still a favourite of mine. I coloured him in with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils a little while ago and I thought he would suit this card. I decided to keep this card pretty simple as the background paper that I chose to use was quite busy.

Challenges I am entering…

Weekly Challenge!

Catch The Bug Weekly Challenge – December Anything Goes

and this sketch #721 from Stells Says Sketch

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card project. I have so much fun bringing these to you all. Before you depart my blog I would like to leave you with this final thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Remember you can start anew today…

Clouds with Silver Lining

Hello everyone, I am here to share with you a card that I have made for the latest Stella Says Sketch challenge. With my shoulder the way that it is I am never sure when or for how long I will be able to craft so I make the most of it when I can. So yesterday when I was feeling OK I searched out a favourite sketch challenge to see what I may be able to use. And this is the card that I was able to craft.

11 30 Rain Bear

I had coloured this image (April Showers by Bugaboo Digital Stamps, unfortunately no longer available) a little while ago. And this is the sketch #720 from Stella Says Sketch Challenge.

To the image, I just added the extra raindrops and flurries to put him in a rain shower. I cut out the image with a die with my Cuttlebug and then cut around the image with my scissors to make the backing layer as I didn’t have a suitable die to do this. And then I found this sentiment from another set of stamps that I thought suited my image and this finished off this card.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card project. I am grateful for all of the likes and comments that my posts have been getting. Before you go I would like to leave you with this quote to ponder on.

Birthday Ewe

Hello everyone, I am here to share with you a card that I made but am running close to the end of the Stella Says Sketch Challenge.

11 24 Ewe Birthday

I had actually coloured this image “Happy Birthday to Ewe!” from Bugaboo Digital Stamps with my Faber-Castell Polychromos a little while ago. I colour in images when I have time and keep them in a box for use on later projects.

Here is the sketch from Stella Says Sketch #719

Wee One Bug

Hello everyone, another card made from one of my images that I have watercoloured but this time around I have added some details with pens afterwards.

10 06 BugBoy

This cute little image is called Wee Little Bug from Bugaboo Digital Images and is still available. This card started with a sketch from Stella Says Sketch #716 

But I will also be putting this card into the Anything Goes Challenge over at the Catch the Bug Challenge site.

I kept this card on the simple side because I wanted to let the watercolour image to be the main star. I had a lot of fun both colouring in the image and making up the card as well.
