Going Buggy

Monday, January 5, 2015

Good Monday Morning!

Lots of posts today as all my design teams are back from holiday break and in full swing!

Right now,  check out the 

This week's theme:  
Going Buggy

We want to see your projects using bugs.  Remember, you don't have to use a 2 Cute Ink image but we love it when you do!

Stop by the 2 Cute Ink Challenge blog and see all my fellow design team members projects.  Be sure and leave each of them some blog love.  

The design team are all using Heidi's current new image, Bee Happy for the challenge.  Isn't it adorable?  It was so much fun coloring it and designing a card around it!  It is also the freebie digi over at the 2 Cute Ink Newsletter. You have to subscribe to the newsletter to get it free.  AND, there's a challenge on the 2 Cute Ink Facebook page where you can enter your own project using the freebie.  All you have to do is subscribe to the newsletter and join the Facebook page.

I did two cards with it.  One was debuted on the Newsletter and this one I made specifically for today's challenge:

STAMPS: Bee Happy (2 Cute Ink); Sentiment (Anna Griffin).
PAPER: White cardstock.
INK: Copics on digi; Colored Pencil; Libpstick Red (Simon Says).
EXTRAS: Honeycomb stencil (Heidi Swap); Alphabet dies (Lil Inker Designs); Crystal Stickles; black chevron ribbon.

For this first card, I decided to use some different medium, so I used a yellow colored pencil and colored in one of my Heidi Swapp stencils.  I was inspired by this month's Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking digital issue where they have a section on using colored pencils and crayons with different techniques. Despite printer issues resulting in a little smeared ink on the digi, I like how this card turned out.

For the card below, I used patterned paper from my stash and the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

STAMPS: Bee Happy (2 Cute Ink); Sentiment "Bee"-(Studio G).
PAPER: White, black, raspberry cardstock from stash; DP - Love Notes (Crate Paper). Honeycomb paper from stash.
INK: Copics on Digi; Tuxedo Black (Memento).
EXTRAS: Heart dies (Sizzix Framelits); Love word die (Simon Says); white sequins.
