New Release at Bugaboo!

It's Tuesday which means that it is time for a New Release at Bugaboo Stamps! That's right today we are releasing all new images at the Bugaboo Store! I simply love these images, they are a perfect girlie indulgence! This set is called High Heels, and it's just fabulous!

Since this High Heel had a sprig of holly on it I wanted to use some typical Christmas colors but also add in the pink for the girly flair. Of course no 'girly flair' would be complete with out a big pink bow to match! I had so much fun with this image and I can't wait to use the rest of this set too!

I hope you enjoyed my card for today, I really had a lot of fun with this one! Be sure to check out the Bugaboo Blog and see the other DTs Members creations with today's new images, you are going to love these images! Have a great day and I hope that you enjoyed today's card fun!

Today I get to share with you this adorable little girl called Heartfelt! I love how warm and bundled up she looks, perfect for the cold that comes in February, and perfect for any Valentine's creation too. I wanted to make a card using colors that you don't see a lot in a Valentine's Day card, so I pulled different colors from this sheet of Basic Grey paper in the Sugar Rush pad. I think this card came out fun, but not what I expected when I first sat down, some of these cards seem to have a mind of their own.

I hope you enjoyed my card for today, be sure to head on over to Kim's Blog after 11 am EST today to see who else is sharing teasers! Also, be sure to come back here tomorrow for more teasers! Have a fabulous day all!

Happy Birthday Jodie!

Do you know what today is? Well it's Monday, November 29th, which is Jodie's birthday! That's right the fabulous owner and illustrator for Bugaboo Stamps is celebrating her birthday today! In celebration of this special occasion, we are having a birthday blog hop! Today's Hop started at Tammy's Blog so if you are happening upon the hop here, please head back up to Tammy's Blog so you don't miss a step along the way!

I decided for Jodie's Birthday I needed to make her a sweet and fun card so I pulled out my Birthday Eggbert image and got to work. I just received all of the Fluorescent colors from Copic, so I wanted to play with them all in one image, and this image let me do just that! This image is just so much fun, if you don't have the whole Eggbert collection yet, what are you waiting for! I hope you have an amazing birthday Jodie, you deserve a day just for you!

Your next stop along the Blog Hop is Jeanie's Blog, so be sure to keep on hopping and make sure you hop all the way to Jodie's Blog and wish her a very happy birthday! Have a fabulous day all!

With the addition of ARTish to our team, we are also adding a new weekly release! ARTish's images are going to be digital downloads and we will be releasing at least 2 new digi images every single Monday....They will be called "Paper Pretties Monday Whatnots...What's not to love!".

ARTish's illustration style is such a perfect fit with our Paper Pretties family! If you love to color you will LOVE her images! For my card today I decided to use this adorable lion image, his name is Leonardo Lion. This fabulous image would be great for a little boys card, and I love how he is wearing this crown on his head, he sort of reminds me of Aslan from the tale The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe....what do you think, do you see him? I hope you like what I created for you today, this image was a lot of fun to play with!

For today I decided to ink up A Box of Love, one of four new Pure Innocence images to be released this month. I don't know about you, but the Pure Innocence line from My Favorite Things has grabbed my attention since I first saw one image posted with these cuties! It was so hard to decide where to start with these images for me this month since they were all so darn cute, I finally went with this image for today's card and I love how it turned out! I also got the chance to use one of this month's new Die-namics, are you ready for this one? It's called the Flower Border Die and it is just precious, simply perfect for any Pure Innocence creation, especially the adorable love-y ones that are being released this month!
Isn't this Die-namic just too cute! I used it as part of my ribbon embellishment, I thought it would be a different way to show off the die. I also layered the darling candy box so that it popped up at you, they are screaming my name they look so yummy! Then to finish off the entire card I added a few Baby Bradies from the Adornments section of My Favorite Things, I have these in so many colors that these cute little pink ones are just perfect for and some straight pins I found too!

I hope you enjoyed my card for today, be sure to head on over to Kim's Blog after 11 am EST today to see who else is sharing teasers! Also, be sure to come back here tomorrow for more teasers! Have a fabulous day all!

I used this fun and wintery blue paper and a few different shades of blue.

He is always such a cuddle and cuddly bunny!I also got a chance to play along with the new Flapper Doodles stamp set Cheers to a New Year!

MFT Teaser Time!

Today is the first Teaser Time at My Favorite Things! That's right, I was invited to be part of the December Temp Team at My Favorite Things! Today we are sharing with you creations using three fabulous stamp sets! I decided to play along with the soon to be released stamp set Tweeny Teen: You Give Me Wings!

Teaser prizes begin today, so be sure to leave comments at each stop! Just by commenting, you could win one of two $10 gift vouchers! (Two prizes will be awarded every day of previews.) You can check back with Kim each day for winners.

This stamp set is from the Tweeny Teen Line at My Favorite Things and she is simply fabulous! Not only do you get this adorable main image, but this set comes with four different sentiments. I picked out the sentiment 'Spread Your Wings and Fly' for my card and layered it on some oval punches and then popped it up on pop dots!

For the focus of my card I cut out this adorable fairy image and popped her up on a nestabilities large oval and sponged in a field of color. I also went through my Die-namic stash (yes, I have lots) and used my Scalloped Scallop Die as part of my card. I love this Die-namic, in fact this was the first one I owned and I got it as part of one of the VIP kits before Die-namics were released. Then of course, no card is complete without some ribbon and a giant bow for good measure.

I hope you enjoyed my card for today, be sure to head on over to Kim's Blog after 11 am EST to see who else is sharing a teaser with you today! Be sure to come back here tomorrow for more teasers! Have a fabulous day all!

Eggbert at Bugaboo Stamps

My Paper Pretties November Release Post is below, please scroll down!Now today's Freebie Friday is a fabulous way to build up a huge collection of images from Bugaboo Stamps! Today's Freebie image is "Eggbert"! I just think this image is too cute! Be sure to take advantage of today's Friday Freebie while you can!

With this card I wanted to use the winter feel the image has, but I wanted to use colors that you don't see as often with winter images so I pulled out my Jolly By Golly DP from Cosmo Cricket and used two different teal shades and some yellow for my card today! I have been sorting through my crafting goodies and I found these Heidi Swapp snowflakes, I knew I had a package of them some where!

Pretties Party and Preview!

Today is Wednesday, so you know what that means, it's time for another Paper Pretties Challenge! BUT, not only is today a Challenge, but it is also a peek of another fabulous new stamp set to be released on Friday....AND it is also a Birthday Blog Hop! I know, oh my goodness are we Prettie Girls one crazy busy bunch or what?!

Today is Jennifer's Birthday! Many birthday wishes are heading you way Jennifer! Since we can't get together to celebrate Jennifer's birthday, we are hopping around and hosting a virtual birthday blog hop, or our little Paper Pretties Party if you will! We are kicking things off at the Paper Pretties Blog blog, so if you haven't started there then you better head on over, but if you are joining me from Frances' blog then you found the right place!

This week our challenge is to create a card that uses some form of embossing! Simple enough, and with so many choices! Not only so many choices, but also we are previewing the stamp set Everyday Sentiments! This stamp set has 10 different sentiments to choose from as well as these adorable circles to create with, in fact I used two different sentiments stamps and all 4 circles images!For Jennifer I wanted to create a fun card and decided to use the sentiments "Celebrate" and the "you" portion of "Thinking of you", which resulted in the "Celebrate you"! It is a bit hard to see, but I have used crystal clear embossing powder on the sentiments and the circle image that is between the sentiments. I wanted to create some background paper with the circles in the stamp set and gave each image a different color then mounted the paper on matching color card stock and added a giant bow!

Today we are releasing a new set of Poppi images! I simply loved our previous set of these and I just know that these will be even better! This one is Poppi Christmas, and I just love this adorable stocking he is holding up!

I used this fun DP, it has a bit of shine to it, and to be honest I am not sure where I got it from, but I love it! I also cute out this image to make it look like it's a tag on the card, I thought it would be a lot of fun. I also added some red marks to the sides of the tag I created to give it a bit of texture and colors on the edges. Plus I layered some ribbons together to get this fun effect that I created in the bow. So much fun!

Now, before I end this post, I wanted to make sure you saw the current happening at Bugaboo Stamps!
