Bugaboo Crabby Cat and Bingo

Holiday Chaos day seven and the challenge today is a 'BINGO' challenge! I used the row with glitter/bling, snowflakes and non traditional colours. The snowflakes are on the embossed background.

I used a Bugaboo stamp called  Crabby Cat Christmas and a new(to me) die  from Shapeabilities titled  'Gold Corner Sets One'.  The background was embossed with a Christmas embossing folder and the sentiment is from Whimsy stamps. I punched out  the dark brown frames with Spellbinders Circle and Scalloped dies and placed them off center . The elf was coloured with Prismacolor Markers and the skin tone with copics. I added a bit of sparkle and the card was done.

Hope you take the time to join in the fun at 'Catch the Bug'

Bugaboo - OBG

Day 6 of Holiday Chaos at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog and the theme is Oldie but a Goodie with old paper and an old image. I used the Bugaboo image 'AKV Santa - chimney' , coloured him with Prismacolor Markers, framed him with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4 die cut, paper from my remnants file, a stampin Up sentiment and two Stampin ' Up punches for the  sentiment frame. To jazz it up a bit I added some red rhinestones and a couple of  branches from the  Heartfelt Creations die "Belle Rose'.   I am certainly adding to my Christmas card collection.  Yay!

Bugaboo SASJJcheers

funny photo

Today is day 5 of Holiday Chaos at Catch the Bug challenge blog.. The theme is Funny Photo Challenge, so  dig out your funny bone and share your humour with us. 

I picked  the Bugaboo  image 'SASJJcheers' taking the colour red and the wine glass from the above photo as my inspiration.  Skin tone were coloured with Copics and the rest with Prismacolor Markers. The lettering is from Memory Box 'Classic  Lowercase Alphabet' and the two large snowflakes are from Impression Obsession Die024-X. The little wee red one was found on the floor under my desk so goodness knows :O)! The half hidden tree is a Sizzix Tim Holtz die.  The red circles are from a paper punch.
Have a great day!

Bugaboo Elf Card

I used a Bugaboo stamp called BUGELF001 , quite adorable.  and a new(to me) die  From Creative Impressions titled  'Striplet - Bevelled Glass' which I cut in half  to fit my card. I pasted it over a brown strip and left the bottom line open to the white embossed background.This is my interpretation to the scalloped edge shown in the sketch. The background was embossed with a Christmas embossing folder and the sentiments is from Stampin Up  and punched out with two Stampin Up  punches. The elf was coloured with Prismacolor Markers and the skin tone with copics. I added a bit of sparkle and the card was done.
