Bug A Boo Stamps Watermelon Peeker


We have a new challenge starting today at Catch The Bug, the theme is bright colors with Flower Soft!  I made my card up and was about to post it in our design team gallery and noticed it said "Flower Soft", oh...  so luckily I had some green flower soft to add to the leaves.  I wasn't as prepared for this challenge as I thought.  

I had a lot of fun making my card despite leaving off the Flower Soft at first.  I have a new package of Spellbinders Labels 4 Grand dies that I've been playing with.  


I put them on my Scor-Pal and added the 12 inch ruler on top to show the "grand" size of them.  Here's another picture with the regular Labels 4 set inside them.


That's a lot of dies!  I don't have the Grand Calibur yet but it's I did order it and I'm patiently waiting...

I used one of the Grand Labels 4 dies to cut my card body, then embossed it with a 5 X 7 Cuttlebug embossing folder.  My image is called Watermelon Peeker and she's colored with Copic markers RV09, RV04, RV02, YR24, YR21, Y21, R20, T5, B21, B23, YG67, YG63, YG61, E11, E00, E000.  

My card layout was just trying to follow the shape of the card body.  I also used Spellbinders Circles, Scalloped Circles, Pinking Circles, Tags & one more Grand Labels 4 die along with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The cardstock colors are Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz, Via Vellum Leaf Grean & Sunflower as well as Neenah Solar White.  The sentiment is new from Create With TLC.  

Here's my card before the Flower Soft...

Another adorable card, Jan! I love how your Copic coloring just brings the images to life - all that practice has paid off! She is lovely.

Wow, those really are some Grand nesties! Thanks for showing us, I may never have believed it if I hadn't seen it.

Hope your holiday weekend is full of love and laughter.
