Dinosaur Window Card


Welcome to the Bugs Bytes. Sheila here from She's A Sassy Lady sharing this adorable little card that I shared at our card party on Sunday. I used Create A Critter and the Art Philosophy carts. I designed the card on Cricut's CCR.



Now wasn't that easy to put together?  And the card is darling and you know my grandson is going to love it!


Here is the card completed, don't you just lot the window with the circles. This is a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Like all my cards I made them 2 up so there would be no wasted space on my paper and I can use the other card for an additional birthday card in the future.


I wanted to share how neat the inside of this card is.... no rough edges and it looks so cute.


Now remember I shared this card as a card party card so I cut 10 of these little cards and the girls loved them. As a matter of fact two of the girls needed girl cards so they added pink bows and a diamond necklace.

I hope you enjoyed my post today. Thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. Your comments continue to inspire me.

Christmas challenge card at DS4J

Here is a very quick card I made for the Christmas challenge at DS4J - http://digistamps4joy-sa.blogspot.com/2014/02/monthly-christmas-challenge-february.html
I didn't do justice to the card due to some unforeseen circumstances.
Colored using zig stella markers. They look good face to face and glitter but are kind of awful to take photo of.

I have used Washi tape, stickers and embossing folder to decorate.

Purr-cious

Hi
Today I am a designer on She's a Sassylady. Thanks Sheila for having me on as your designer.
Sassy Studio Designs has a challenge every month on facebook  - https://www.facebook.com/groups/258002824294410/ and you get to play with one of their given images following a theme. This month the image was "Pin up Kitty" and the theme so perfect for Valentine - "Hearts and Sentiments".
So I made a card

 Though I should say frankly this is an image I would not normally go for I did have fun coloring her though and coming up with a fun sassy sentiment to fit. I chalk up this card to experimentation.

The heart die is from spellbinder heartfelt creations and the heart border is from memory box called delightful heart border - 98767

Thank you all for letting me share my project with you all. Hope this inspires you to color up a image even if you have not colored before and also to try your hand at, to explore what you generally would not attempt normally.
Happy Valentine!
Pam

DS4J CHALLENGE # 84 - 'Add some real ribbon"

The challenge this fortnight at DS4J is sponsored by design team member Antoinette
The THEME : 'Add some real ribbon"
 I made the card using image - Best Friends



I used ribbon on the grass (in front of the grass border die). Cutting and fraying the ribbon gives a lovely grass effect.  I furled the ends around a pencil and then heat set the satin with hot embossing gun so that it remains curled. Flowers are using spellbinder die and ek success retro  punch. I flattened a bead cap and added to the retro punch flower.
