Bitten by the Bug 2- Celebrating Grandparents

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

It is time for a new challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2.  I could not wait to create this rocking chair from SVG cuts.  

 


I remember lots of hours spent sitting in a rocking chair with my grandmas and reading books.  This has and always be a memory I will remember and is probably why I am such a reader now.

Here is a look at the seat of the chair.

I used pattern paper from the Bloomsbury paper pad from Michael's and Denim Days cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey.  

Now it is your turn.  Create a project that celebrates grandparents.  Then share it with us at Bitten By the Bug 2.

Crafty Gals Corner- Hello Fall

 

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Fall is almost here.  Can you feel it?  Not here in Southern California.  As I am preparing this blog post, it is currently 100 degrees.  I can't wait for the cooler weather.

As I wait, I created a card using an adorable digital stamp from Pattie's Creations Digital Images.

 

Here is the card I created. 

I created the base of the card with cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey and pattern paper from Photoplay- Fall Breeze.

I then took the image and colored with my Copic markers.

Pumpkins: YR27, YR68, YR15

Leaves: Y38, Y23, Y21, E09, E08, E97

Bucket: E57, E35, E33, E31, C7, C5, C3

Apples: R59, R46, R35

Vines: G99, G94

Apple leaves: G28, G24

I then die cut the word grateful from off-white cardstock and a Stampin Up die.

Now it is your turn.  Create a fall card and share it with us at Crafty Gals Corner.

Simply Create Too- Fall Leaves Theme

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

We have a new challenge at Simple Create Too.  One of my favorite things this time of year, Fall Leaves!  I love the colors of fall and everything the fall season brings.

The card I created is full of fall leaves.


I started the card with cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey and a top layer of pattern paper from Photo Play- Fall Breezes.

I then die cut the word thanks from Fun Stampers Journey and added some leaves from dies from Rubbernecker Stamps.

I think it screams fall, don't you?

Washi Tape Background Card

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

New month means a new challenge at Love to Craft Challenge Blog.

I created a card recently for a Washi Tape swap.  The requirements were to create a card using Washi tape.  I had this washi tape and I thought...Sunset!

I then had these cute images that were given to me that I thought were perfect for the card and I colored them with my Copics.

Bluebird:B06, B04, B02, YR68

Toucan: V9, V6, Y17, Y15, Y68

I then stamped the sentiment from a set I borrowed from a friend and did not get the name.

I had fun creating this card.  

Now it is your turn.  Create something and share it with us at Love to Craft Challenge Blog.

Bitten By the Bug 2: Birthday Card

 


Hello Crafty Friends,

We have a birthday theme over at Bitten By the Bug 2.  I wanted to play with my new paper pad from Michael's so I created this card.

I created the card base using cardstock and pattern paper from Michael's.  I then cut the words with my Cricut from the Celebrations cartridge.  I glued them to a piece of white cardstock and cut around them.

I added them to the card base using foam squares. 

I finished the card by adding a red piece of twine around the card and tied a bow.

Now it is your turn.  Create a birthday project and share it with us at Bitten By the Bug 2.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.

Bitten By the Bug 2: Under the Sea

 


Hello Crafty Friends,

It is time for a new Cricut challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2 and the theme is Under the Sea!  This was challenge to lead and I have known for months what I wanted to create.  Here is what I created:

It is water bottle that says: Can't be a mermaid without water.  I purchased the file on Etsy and cut it out with my Cricut using permanent vinyl in purple, turquoise, white and blue.   

On the back and put the times and refill.

The times came out kind of crooked, but I love it.  First time trying to do something like this on a surface that was not flat.  

Now it is your turn.  Create a project with an "Under the Sea" theme and join us at Bitten By the Bug 2.
