Bugs & Kisses!!


Hidee ho fellow stampers and crafty people!!! I had a ton of fun playing with the Sketch Challenge on SCS yesterday. Sometimes I just don't feel the stampin' mojo, ya know what I mean?? But yesterday was a good day and this is the card I made!!

I got this stamp set, Bugs and Kisses, a couple of weeks ago for the Consistency Counts promotion for Stampin' Up demos. I had mounted it but the rubbah had never touched ink.....so of course, this was the perfect opportunity!! It was also nice to makemore of a little boy card which is totally outside of the box for moi!!

Anyhoo, I started off with the sketch as my inspiration. I knew the cards had to have greens on it to use with those cute little bugs!! The patterened paper by Simple Memories was perfect so I took the ink and cardstock colours from there. The card base is Tempting Turquoise and the patterned paper, which I ran through the Cuttlebug using the Bloom Dots embossing folder, is matted on Night of Navy. I ticket corner punched the pp and added silver brads. I cut the larger squares out of Night of Navy and Old Olive cardstock and the smaller squares out of coordinating patterned paper. Each of the bugs was stamped on Whisper White cardstock and then cut out and pop dotted on the squares. I did the little snail using my SU markers so that I could use two different colours on the stamp. Then I made the little tag myself using the tag corner punch and added some yummy navy polka dot ribbon by American Crafts. I'm SO happy with it and I think any of the little guys in my life would love it!!!

So the main consensus from yesterday's comments from you ladies is that you would enjoy a sketch challenge! Sounds fun to me!! I LOVE sketch challenges!! So I will either look for a sketch online or try to design something myself for our little challenge!! When I hit 15,000 visitors, I will post the challenge and away we go!!! Heehee! I'm gettin' excited!!!
