Angel freebie

Here's my card featuring this week's Bugaboo Freebie Friday image-  you can pick it up later today at no cost here.

I masked the angel before I started on my background. I used a star stencil from MB and heat embossed the stars with gold EP. A stencil from TH was used with blue ink. Then I added frantage and also a few liquid enamel dots.
The angel got glitter glue on her wings and the sentiment is a sticker.

St. Patrick's circle - Theodore

Tuesday is "New release day" over at Catch the Bug, and this is St. Patrick's circle - Theodore.

I don't celebrate St. Patrick's, so I fussy cut the image and placed the bear inside a die cut circle made of green glitter paper.
I used my new embossing folder from Crafter's Companion to make the background and added a few dots from my stash.
The card shape is made with dies from Go Kreate.

Gift card holder with penguin

Monday is ‘anything but a card’ inspiration day over at Catch the Bug. Last Christmas I realized a few gift card holders would have come in handy, so this year I’ll be sure to make some.

So, my first one is ready. Here I’ve used some papers that have been in my stash for ages, I believe they are from Bo Bunny.  I colored up a penguin and added glitter glue for snow.
I added the gift tag with twine. This way the gift card holder could easily be regifted to someone else, if the person receiving this decide to do so. In my family I see we reuse gift bags from year to year, I think it’s a beautiful little tradition of ours, and environment friendly too.

INKspirational - Use your stash

We have a new challenge at Inkspirational and this time Carol has chosen the theme of USE YOUR STASH.
I encourage you to head over to the challenge blog for inspiration from the rest of the team.
 
 
I kind of went 'all in'... 


 So what did I put on this card? 
There are 3 different papers from a Kaiserkraft pad. The sky I decorated with gold embossed moon and stars - they are hidden somewhere behind all the frantage. 3 die cut snowflakes with liquid enamel dots in the center. I used a Tim Holtz die set to make the village, very fiddly, and I completed the scene with some additional trees and fences made with dies from another set. The sentiment sticker is also T. Holtz and the cute hedgehog is made with a stamp from Penny Black. So lots of stuff on here, even for me.

        We have a new challenge at Inkspirational and this time we have a word prompt: TEXT. There are many ways to intepret this theme, I encourage you to head over to the challenge blog for inspiration from the rest of the team.

Then I used a script stamp, part of a Christmas set from Tim Holtz, brown ink and a lighter DI to highlight the stamped area. I took a sentiment and a fussy cut bunny - both from Lawn Fawn -  and a feather from Fiskars and arranged them to make it look like the bunny has written the sentiment.

        Sketch and Wizard

        Today starts a new sketch challenge over at Catch the Bug and this is my take on it, using Wizardry Wizard 06 colored with Promarkers.


        As the wizard has stars on his clothes I decided to change the circles of the sketch to stars. The larger stars are die cut and decorated with faux stitching, the smaller ones were part of another Bugaboo image which was fussy cut. I also added a few enamel dots. The colorful DP is from Lawn Fawn.
