Make It Colorful

It is Thursday again, so that means another wonderful challenge over at Card Crafter's Circle ( This week's theme is "Make It Colorful." We'd like to see your super fun creations -- the more colorful the better (grin). I always like cards with lots of happy colors, and even more right now as the winter grays seem to be predominate everywhere. I definitely prefer the spring time with its warmer temps and lively blooms burting forth. Ah well, since I don't live on a tropical island, guess I must take each season in its turn.

We are fortunate to once again have as our fantastic sponsor the the uber-fabulous... Bugaboo Stamps! Our randomly drawn challenge winner will receive their choice of 7 Bugaboo images... what an awesome prize because Bugaboo offers some absolutely darling images!

My image is the BBrat Girl Cupcake Sitter ( Isn't she a cutie? I colored her with my Copic markers on Cryogen card, then fussy cut her out. Using card cut at 6"x6", I created an easel card. I covered the packground with green dotty paper. The dots are raised and have a bit of sparkle to them. The lower half is a piece of DP from DCWV. The design includes several strips of candies, jelly beans, and cherries (the latter is seen when easel is standing). Those are all slightly raised with a bit of sparkle. All the papers work to create a nice, colorful and shimmery effect.

I placed a doily (Cheery Lynn die) on the green dotty paper and a small yellow ribbon at the point where the two papers meet. Using pop-dots, I lifted the little Cupcake Sitter for dimension and "sat" her atop the ribbon. I added three pink pearls at three points on the doily and then stamped the sentiment, using pink ink, onto a scrap piece of the Cryogen, cut it out and placed it beside my little image.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:


  1. Fantastic card, and a great job on the coloring. Thanks for sharing on Stamp n doodle.

  2. She looks so fabulous popped up on this wonderful layer of DP's! Love how you added the ribbon!
