DT Day with Bugaboo Stamps

Pin It
Sue from Sue's Paper Crafts here with you today. It is day to show off what I have made with my image from this month's sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps.

Once again I did my best to follow this month's challenge theme of Use Your Stash.
The colored pencils I used to color my image have been hanging around since 2011 or 2012. I also used a Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage CD to print the flowered paper on the back of the bookmark, I've had that for many years also.
The stamps I used on the back for the sentiment are from Inky Antics, I have had them since 2012. The flower stamp is from Hero Arts and a new item to my stash but they were on clearance so they have been in stock at the store where I bought them for a really long time.
I also added some Stickles to the flower centers and I have had them since 2010.
Please come on over to Connie Can Crop and play along with this month's Use Your Stash Challenge.

Guest DT Georgiana

Pin It
I am so excited to announce our next Guest Designer for 2017 here at Connie Can Crop...
Georgiana Carson
Carsons Creations
So excited to have my talented friend Georgiana back again and joining us this month!

Hello Crafty Friends, Happy Monday! This is Georgiana from Carson's Creations and I am super thrilled to be Guest Designer this month at Connie Can Crop. What a fabulous opportunity to share with others. The challenge...Use Your Stash. Perfect! I have plenty of crafty supplies that need to be used. Here is My Guest Designer project... I created a matching tag and card for my one of my very good teacher friends that has been my walking buddy all summer. We meet almost every day at 6:15am and walk for one hour (which is about 3.6 miles). We talk about anything and everything. Lately we have been on a healthy food kick, so I bought her a salad cookbook, which will go with this set.
First, I started with the tag. The base and sentiment is by Jaded Blossom and then I stamped all fab flowers by Lawn Fawn. The 3 Girl JAM ribbon was in a plastic container in the closet and I was glad to be able to use it with these purple flowers.
I created the card next. I decided to use the scallop rectangle mat and then I used my Cuttlebug to die cut the embroidered thanks into the cream card stock. Instead of embroidery floss, I used purple craft thread since I have a bunch in my stash. I did watch a video to make sure I was sewing in the correct direction.
The stamped sentiment is by Jaded Blossom ~ Encouragement stamp set.
Thanks Connie for allowing me to be your Guest Designer. Looking forward to next time. Stay Creative, Georgiana

BE sure to stop by Georgiana's Blog and leave her some love! She was an awesome Guest DT!!

To Go, Please

Pin It
Hi there folks!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards.

Today I'm sharing a card made with an image by our sponsor this month, Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  This particular image is called JJ- Coffee To Go.  I opted to go with a flip card:

To start I print and cut the mats using digital patterned paper from the Coffee Lover Kit by Digi Doodle Studio.  I color matched that to Bazzill card stock to cut the remaining mats and base.

I printed the focal image and the sentiment on Stampin' Up's Very Vanilla card stock.  I printed it on Whisper White first, but it was just too stark against the browns.  I colored the image using Copic markers with a bit of Glossy Accents on her glasses and shoes and the lid to the coffee cup.  A little sponging around the edges with some Soft Suede finished it off and I added it to the front with some mounting tape.

For those of you who don't know what a flip card is, here's a look at it down from the top.  You can see how, through several cleverly placed cuts and folds, the focal image flips when you open the card to reveal the sentiment on the other side.

 And here's the sentiment...which I love!  I know I have days where I wish that was on the menu!

I hope you've already entered a project in Connie Can Crop's monthly challenge.  The theme this month is, "Use Your Stash", so pretty much anything goes!

And don't forget our sponsor this month is Bugaboo Digi Stamps...wouldn't you love a chance to get your hands on a gift certificate to their store?  Well, here's your chance!

YouTube Tuesday-Bugaboo Stamps

Pin It
Hi there.  It's Kim from Katydid Cards.  Since Bugaboo Digi Stamps is our sponsor this month, I thought I would share a few videos featuring their images.

The first features chalking and I thought you might find that interesting as chalk isn't as commonly used in our projects these days;

This second features using and blending Copic Fluorescent Markers:

The third features Distress Markers:

I hope these videos will inspired you to join our challenge for the opportunity to win some Bugaboo images.  All you need to do is make a project using your stash:

One winner, picked at random, will receive a gift certificate to Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  Wouldn't you love to win that?
