Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #239 It's A Bugs Life



Welcome to another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and Lin is hosting today's challenge.

The theme of this weeks challenge is 'It's a Bugs Life'.  As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece,  some home decor as long as it meets the theme.

I originally thought of a fun card using humorous bug images, but while looking through my "stuff"  I  found this gem of a rubber stamp from IndigoBlu. I used Prismacolor markers, a butterfly and a dragonfly punch and finished it off with some half pearls.

Challenges:
1. Moo-Mania #197 - Butterflies
2. Take a Word: Butterflies
3. International Art and Soul: #65 Flowers
4. The Corrosive Challenge: #8 ATG
5. Crafting by Designs: August Anything Goes

Bugaboo Christmas in July Thursday Challenge - Day 6- 2019 - Photo


Day 6 Thursday - Photo Inspiration - with the movie 'White Christmas' as the inspiration I chose the colour white as the main theme on my card and a very old black&white Bugaboo sentiment. (hope I am correct as the sentiment image was stored under Bugaboo on my computer, but I have misfiled before LOL!) .

I used an embossing folder for the large white background, a white lace strip placed horizontally and a larger two-layered vertical strip upon which placed some silver snowflakes.


Embossing folders: Stampin UP's Square Lattice , Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
Die : Creative Expressions  Bevelled Glass, Spellbinders Circles
Other: white lace, silver stars, stickles

Bugaboo Christmas in July Tuesday Challenge - Day 4



Day 4 Tuesday- Bingo Challenge - with the movie pick of Elf

I used the wonderful Elf image from Bugaboo titled 'Deacon Candy Cane, coloured him with Copics and designed the card to fit the Bingo Challenge! I chose the vertical line  of Sparkle-Bugaboo Image-Sentiment. I added sparkle to the rim of the hat, the bells on the collar and the bell on the end of the hat. The round flakes of the white part of the round circle are also sparkly. Had a terrible time getting them to show up on the camera pictures.😃
Stamp: Bugaboo's Deacon Candy Cane

Bugaboo Christmas in July Monday Challenge - Day 3


Bugaboo Christmas in July 2019   


Day 3 Monday Challenge Theme: Anything but a Card   with the movie  Santa Claus is Coming to Town as the inspiration source. As it has the song "Santa Clause is coming to Town'  in the movie I decided to create a project (Gift Bag) based on the words 'He is making a list and checking it twice' as my inspiration.  Bugaboo's Ho,Ho,Ho stamp seemed to be close enough lol!

Stamp: Bugaboo's  AKV Santa HoHoHo (not sure it is still available as I could not find it on the Blog)

I used the wonderful image from Bugaboo titled 'Crabby Cat Christmas' (one of my favourites), coloured him with Copics and gave him a layout as per sketch. The sentiment was taken from an old ticket stamp set from Whimsy stamps.
