I have not 1 but 2 posts for you today, so click here if you are looking for the Jan’s Digi Stamps post. As always, the first of the month is the launch date for the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge and this month our sponsor is the amazing Bugaboo Stamps. For my project(s) today I used a set called Birthday Puppies Set which includes 3 separate, adorable puppy images, so I had to use them all! Funny story though… I printed them off weeks ago, and trying to get a jump on my deadlines I colored 2 of them up and made cards with them. Took pictures and everything, stored them away, and promptly forgot all about them!!! I had the 3rd image on my desk as the due date approached and I panicked. Thankfully I had pulled out patterned paper when I did the other 2 cards so the card came together pretty quickly (the cupcake card). Now, you would think that I would remember the other 2 while coloring this 1 up, but no. I just thought I left out the pencils I planned to use. See, this month has been a doozy and I’m not running on all cylinders, as they say. Anyway, as I went to edit my 1 recent Bugaboo card, I found the other 2 in my gallery. Doh!!! So, I pulled them back out and took a shot of the 3 together. The cupcake card looks a little different, but it was nice to see I kept the colors consistent and style similar. This is the 1 time I’m glad I’m very predictable in my crafting! LOL! Let me show you each card a little closer up…
This was the card that was kinda thrown together thinking I was late, but I still like how it turned out! Only after I colored it up did I remember what my original plan for this image was, and this wasn’t it. Oh well, it still turned out cute! The sentiment for this card is from an Art Impressions set called Big Birthday Wishes. All 3 Bugaboo images for my cards were colored with Prismacolor pencils and the patterned paper is from a really old Echo Park 6×6 pad no longer available.
Cute, right? The blowout just cracks me up! The sentiment for this card and the next are from the Stampin’ Up! Party Pandas set. The perfect size and font! And here’s the last one… I think its my favorite of the 3:
