I decided to use the March newsletter free image for my card today. You can find it in the Bugaboo store if you didn't get the newsletter..  The row I chose for my card is the bottom one.. Washi tape / orange / embossing.. I embossed the orange card stock with an embossing folder. I then used this awesome washi tape that kinda has a orange fading area and I thought it went well with the orange card stock. I used My favorite things die and cut the image out. The image is colored with copics. I added some glossy accents to the frogs eyes, tongue and fly wings. I also added some Nuvo drops that has an orange look.

Well digging through my designer papers again I found this fun green piece. Well green is one of my favorite colors so thought I would figure out a card. I used My favorite things YOU die and sentiment and layered it on some foam to give depth. I then used some Doodlebug acrylic dots and Nuvo drops. For the sentiment across the YOU I heat embossed it in black and cut it into a banner.

Wednesday May 16, 2018
 
Are you ready for another fun challenge at
 I hope so cause we have a fun theme HORSES
 

I have so many stamps but boy I had to dig for a horse stamp.. I almost used a unicorn and just cut the horn off.. LOL.  I think it would of worked but looking at my shelves of wooden stamps I found this image. I have no idea who it's by cause that was when I just bought rubber and mounted them myself. 
I stamped the image with Stampin up ink. I then used the My favorite things stitch die and cut it out. I used my dry wall tape  as a stencil and added blue Ranger ink for the background texture. I found a sentiment from Tech. Tues. and more SU ink. I added the horse piece but it looked plain so I used Simon Says feather dies and some paint chip pieces and a scrap of paper and tied with twine and added this to the bottom.  This is pretty much and easy peasy card to make.

Are you excited for another challenge at Pause Dream Enjoy #20..
The Orange team has a PHOTO challenge for you.
Will it be colors or actual image.???  Cant wait to see what you create.
 
 
This is the photo guide



I created my card by mostly following the photo. I started by creating my background using my ground and sky template with Ranger ink. Then I added some stamped trees (they are a red rubber stamp and I don't have the name for them). I colored them with colored pencils and I didn't like the medium green I stamped the outline them in so once I finished coloring them I went around the trees with a black pen. Using Paper Trey Ink set I stamped and die cut the bike and added the pink using Stampin up ink.. The tires and basket with Ranger ink and the ivy leaves with Altnew ink. I then assembled the bike and added silver brads on the wheels. I stamped the sentiment also by Paper Trey Ink and heat embossed.  I like the sentiment.. we should live life like it says.

You will always be my forever - Craftaholics R Us #20

Wednesday May 16, 2017
 

The Green team is back with another fun challenge at
Craftaholics R Us #20  and the theme is ANYTHING GOES

Back in 2017 I used this stamp from Hero Arts and embossed the piece but the embossing was messed up cause I didn't get a good stamp on most of it so I cut the piece down to just  three inches which was ok.. I saved it.. Now I am glad I did because it worked out perfect for this ATG challenge. I just cut the piece into one inch strips and added them on foam strips to the blue paper. I embossed the sentiment from Tech. Tuesday in white and added some sequins and Nuvo drops. This card was fun and simple to make.  I really love this Hero arts stamp. So pretty and detailed. The blue embossing powder is so pretty I just need to remember to make sure I double stamp the Versa Mark so I get a good sticky mess for the powder. But at least it was partially saved and thanks to my can't throw anything away.
