Bitten By the Bug 2: Something to Crow About


 

Hello Crafty Friends,

Fall is here and all the sights and sounds and colors are here.  Something I love to see in fall are scarecrows, pumpkins and the hat bales.  I love the idea of fall, the harvest time, so this was the perfect challenge for me.

I created this cute adorable card using my Cricut and a svg file from My Scrap Chick

Isn't he the cutest?  I love that cute smile and simplicity of his face.  I used cardstock in different colors that I had in my stash.  The pattern paper for his arm is from "Fall Breeze" from Echo Park.

The card is an easel card, so when you open it up, it stands up.
 


The stamped sentiment is from Queen and Company's Special Delivery set.  I finished the card off by adding some twine to his wrist and white dots for the crows eye and the inside of the sunflower center.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.  Then create something that has to do with scarecrows, crows or black birds and join the challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2.

Crafty Gals Corner- Halloween Colors

 


Hello Crafty Friends,

It is almost Halloween and what a great new challenge at Crafty Gals Corner.  I don't do scary Halloween, so I sent for this cute candy corn digital stamp from Stamper's Delight.

 

The digital stamp is called Kawaii- So Corny.  I had so much fun coloring up these adorable candy corns, which just happen to be my favorite candy this time of year.

I paired these cuties with my favorite paper line, Doodlebug Designs and created this adorable Halloween card for a little boy.

I colored the Candy Corns with my Copics:

Yellow: Y38, Y17, Y19

Orange: YR09, YR07, YR04

Inside it says:


I think he will get a laugh out of this card.

Then, join the challenge at Crafty Gals Corner and create a project with Halloween colors.

Bitten By the Bug 2: Use Pattern Paper

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

Pattern paper!  I love paper and pattern paper is even better, so this is a perfect for me! 

I found this cute svg from SVG Cuts and had to create it.  

I used pattern paper from Echo Park's Fall Breeze collection to create the shirt.  The base of the card and the cuffs were cut from some cardstock I had on hand that matched the pattern paper.  

 


 To finish the card, I added some orange stones to the pocket and shirt to be the buttons.

The perfect card for a man in your life.

Now it is your turn.  Create a project with your Cricut that showcases pattern paper and share it with us at Bitten by the Bug 2.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.

To create the card I used Kraft paper for the base of the card, then used pattern paper from Carta Bella Christmas Paper pad.  I then die cut the scallop with white cardstock and a die from Fun Stampers Journey.

Love to Craft Challenge Blog- October Challenge


 Hello Crafty Friends,

New month, new challenge at Love to Craft Challenge Blog.  This month I wanted to share a project I created for my ladies for our crop in August.

The theme of the crop was Mexican Fiesta, so I had to create little pinatas for the treat.

The pinata is created using the die set from Sizzix.  I just used cardstock I had around.  

I then filled the little pinatas with Jelly Belly's.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.

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

Bitten By the Bug 2: Witches and Ghouls

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

We have a new challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2 and it is all about Halloween.  Witches and Ghouls are the scary part of Halloween and can be popular among people.  If you know anything about me, I do not do scary for Halloween, so this was a stretch.

I decided on making this Candy Treat box from Dreaming Tree and gifted it to a friend.

It is larger than I expected but, pretty easy to put together.  

Here is a close up of the front of the box.

Here is a close up the back picture with the ghouls.

I used cardstock I had on hand to create the box.  It is hard to tell from the pictures, but the ghosts are cut from white glitter cardstock.

Now it is your turn.  Create a Halloween project with your Cricut including witches and ghouls and share it with us at Bitten By the Bug 2.

FYI, she loved it!
