Circle Easel

Today's Challenge over at Catch The Bug, the challenge blog dedicated to Bugaboo images, is a colour one, MEXICO PINK:

I am certainly trying to get my money's worth from my Grand Nesties and so wanted to try a circle Easel using the scalloped ones. I love how it turned out and really enjoyed making this card.

I personalised it with an old Sizzix Set I have had for years and barely sees the light. I 3D foamed every other letter to make it fit!

The backgrounds were stamped using Melon Mambo ink from SU to match the cardstock, using a few Papertrey Ink stamp sets. The image is Birthday Penguin Cake by Bugaboo.

I then used my Papertrey Ink Number Dies to make the 18 and propped them up to create the stopper.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons - Easel Card     Joyful Stamper - Anything Goes
Poodle Parlour - Monochromatic     Charisma Cardz - No Flowers
Make It Monday - Anything Goes     Shelly's Images - Use a Number

Time Delay

Some of you may have seen this card on the Catch The Bug blog yesterday as part of the Oldie But Goodie Thursday feature. In fact, I was supposed to post it too but totally messed up my days and times (yep, it's been one of those weeks!!!). So better late than never!

I used my Grand Nesties to create the card base and layers. The image is Bugaboo's Guy- Surf

Am having a go right now at making the most of my circle and circle scalloped Grand Nesties as they were quite a purchase and now need to pay for themselves! Here I have used Mildred from Bugaboo. I'm entering it into Make It Monday's challenge this week.

Mini Milk with A Woof

It's my turn for the Anything But a Card today with Bugaboo.
I have made this Puppy Love Balloon mini milk carton using the SU Die. I also used a stampin up Stampin Wheel to do the paw background. It was done with soft suede ink on soft suede card to give it that subtle look.

If you want to see more Bugaboo inspiration, visit Catch The Bug now!

I'm entering this carton into the Make It Monday challenge today too.

Tag It...

Here's a tag I made with the Bugaboo Friday Freebie that is available from today

I used the Butterfly Bear on a Wild Wasabi Tag and some DSP from SU. The ric rac was cut with some Tempting Turquoise card with a PTI die. The sentiment is also from PTI but I can't remember which set - oops!
