Under the Sea Birthday Fun

This week Bugaboo Stamps is celebrating their birthday and their have challenges all week and some very fun prizes! So Tom took my shift with the twins this afternoon to give me some crafty time. So I got two cards done this after noon. At Catch the Bug blog Day 1 was a photo challenge:

So here's the card that I came up with:

I used the Birthday Fishes image and Candle Cake image. I used Copics to color the images and then hand cut the fish image around the frame. I used that to trace around the cake so that the two images would be the same size. The card base is 4x4 inches. The background paper is from Trimgym digital papers. The two little extra fish are popped up and are from Doodle Pantry Finny Fish 2. Unfortunately Doodle Pantry has closed.
I am entering these challenges:
My second card for the Bugaboo challenges is a sketch challenge:

I rotated a couple elements in this sketch but all the essentials are there.

I used Penguin 2 image from Bugaboo.  I die cut the image, colored with Copic and Bic markers, with Spellbinder's Teardrop Circles. I used Mermaid Lagoon distress ink to add color to the die cut. The snowflake paper was still on my desk from an earlier project this week so I decided to use up some scraps. The sentiment is from Create with TLC and die cut with an MFT Pierced Fishtail Banner die. I also added Mermaid Lagoon distress ink to the sentiment banner. The card base is black card stock. To finish off I added three small snowflake die cuts from Paper Smooches.
I am entering these challenges:

  • The Outlawz Thursday challenge: anything goes Optional: distress
  • Catch the Bug Under the Sea challenge Day 2: sketch
  • Hiding in my Craft Room: super scraps Saturday
  • House That Stamps Built: tic tac toe (winter, blue, patterned paper)
  • Crafting by Designs: inspired by a movie (Penguins of Madagascar)
  • Doing Life: Create with TLC Element: use a TLC element (sentiment)

  • Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have enjoyed my cards. I hope your week will get off to a great start. Big hugs to you all.

    i made a fish valentine's for my grandson. think he'll get a kick out of it.
    hope your tests go well with good results.
    alot of kids sick. too much dampness in the air and dryness in the house. i have a humidifier and i still get small shocks. go figure.

    have a great week.
