SDC #311 - Week 2: Bugging Out

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Stampotique's bees.  For the Stampotique Designers Challenge this week I've made an ATC celebrating the Queen Bee.

There are all kinds of glittery bits on this that just don't show up in the photo.  Her wings have clear Wink of Stella on them and her body, head and around the edges have Inka Gold.  Metallic gold paint splatters on there as well.

Stamps Used:
  • Big Bee
  • Medium Bee
  • Hexagon
  • Texture Cube 1
  • Alpha Background
Find all the details on the buggy challenge HERE.  Thanks for swinging by today!

Happy Everything Card

I think interactive cards are so much fun.  I decided to go with the reveal wheel for Lawn Fawn's color challenge.

In the spirit of sending holiday love I included all the December holidays.

Check out Lawn Fawn's color challenge HERE.

Happy November!

Stampotique Guest Designer for November

Lucky me!  I was asked to be the guest designer for the SDC blog this month - thank you, Stampotique!

The first challenge for November is "bugging out".  There are so many great buggy images available at Stampotique, but that's not all.  Keeping in mind the holiday season that's fast approaching I decided to go with "Fleas Navidog" - ha ha!

I love, love, love the stamps that Stampotique offers.  There is an excellent variety perfect for all different types of styles (the quirky ones are my favorites).  Check them out HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Stamps Used:

  • Fleas Navidog
  • Phoebe Doo
  • Texture Cube 1

Busy Little Elves....

When I originally started this blog I intended to showcase items in my Etsy shop.  Instead it's turned into a vehicle for sharing my other artsy endeavors.  Just for fun I'm sharing some of the seasonal makes I've added to the shop or have taken to Hunni Co (a local shop).

(These ones make me chuckle, I must admit.)

If you need some love to top off your holiday gifts, pleae stop by Elves In the Attic and do some shopping.

Happy Holidays!

October Arting

What a great time of year!  Cold, crisp mornings followed by blue skies and bright, sunny afternoons.  Crispy, crunchy leaves crackling as you walk down the street.  Love it!

My artsy shares for today include an autumnal ATC and a spooky Halloween  bookmark.  The ATC  is for a color palette challenge.

Here's the palette:

And now for my Halloween bookmark.  I love wandering through my Halloween stamp stash.  I find things I forgot I had.

Happy October and thanks for stopping by!

Eek! A Spider!

Yowza - there are a LOT of spidewebs in my yard!  I hope the neighbors aren't peeking out their windows as I crazily windmill my arms as I walk around my yard in hopes of removing spiderwebs in my path before I walk through them and they hit my face. Yuk!  Have done that.  Don't like it.

I digress.  Presenting to you a fun, spidery, webby ATC in the spirit of Halloween (color-wise anyway).  Hope you like it!

Love's Affect ATC

Another ATC today!  This one was made for a 'bookpage heart' ATC swap. 

Happy Saturday and happy creating!
