BO BUNNY BLOG HOPPIN!

Hello! Happy Friday to you!!! Once again we have a fun Bobunny blog hop going on here. Welcome to those of you coming from Julia's blog, and also welcome to those of you coming from 2sketches4 you. For the new hoppers, start at the bobunny blog, then hop along to each design team members blog, leaving comments as you go, to find out the GUEST DESIGNER for the hop, then go back to the bobunny blog and leave us a comment telling us who the designer is!

I based this card on the sketch Kazan did this week, I used the awesome new line U Bug Me from Bobunny to make this card. I also used a Colorbok glitter acetate piece ( frog) , a tear out sheet and tiny type letters from MM, and a MAMBI tag I flipped to the backside.


I thought it was perfect for today- HOPPIN! frog- hoppy birthday! LOL! ( doesn't take much to amuse me these days!)

Scroll down to the bottom of my post for the rest of the HOP details.



next I made this card, I typically have trouble with boy cards, but the line is really easy to work with and this turned out so cute! I fussy cut the frog from the U BUG ME line and the rest are papers and journal spots from the collection. I added in a K&CO rubon for the sentiment.


Next is this very fussy card, I just kept adding layers! I guess that's better then tossing the whole thing and starting over! I used some scraps of the U BUG ME line, then added a MM tear spot, then layered an oval with some stamped Colorbok stamps- the bird and deer both have pearl eyes. ( pearls from Michaels) I used a colorbox petal points ink box and the color is Chestnut. I colored the bird and berries with sharpie pen. the rubon is also from K&CO.




I received an awesome package from a Cards publication and in it was this beautiful package of SEI paper that has these bronze foil medallions. , I just had to cut them out and play. I paired a new set of stamps- from Hampton Arts, with the foil swirl sticker, fussy cutting out the word Mother and the birds, and layered them onto this MM label sticker. some more pearls finish it off.
I also got out some of my new favorites, these Colorbok chipboard glitter stickers, layering them onto my Bobunny stickers, and adding in a couple MM pins. I used some scraps of the SEI paper, including a bit of striped foil paper. I folded up the ribbon using mini glue dots.



I have also been doing lots of card sets in preperation for an upcoming craft fair that my sister Kelly and I have teamed up to sell at. I found these gorgeous pre-embossed cards and am finishing them off with my new Hampton Arts stamps, a little SEI scrap paper, colorbox petal points ink and pearls. They actually match better IRL, in my pics the colors aren't as close looking.

These next sets I have several versions made, but all are made with the same colors and stamps, I made three pink, and three blue sets , plus one black and yellow set with this CTMH Celebrate stamp set. I used my cuttlebug to emboss the white cardstock, and I cut out all the presents and cupcakes, plus added on gems to each cupcake.

and last but not least- for the BLOG HOP
please leave me a comment telling me -in consideration of the U BUG ME line- what is your LEAST favorite and MOST favorite creepy crawly?
My least- are spiders- they scare me!! and we get some big un's here - Wolf spiders! My favorite is ladybugs!! they are so sweet looking!
please continue hopping away- on to our GUEST DESIGNERS BLOG!!
have a wonderful friday, thanks for stopping by and thank you in advance for your comments!

Fabulous stuff as always! My least favorite creepy crawly has to be a millipede - all those legs - yucky! I love both ladybugs and butterflies.

MeanMommyAmy said...

Good morning! A favorite bug hmmmmm....I guess if I had to pick one it would be doodle bugs (aka curl bugs). My sister and I used to play with them when we were little. We made doodle bug cities (mazes) in the backyard by digging shallow "streets" in the dirt with sticks and filling them with doodle bugs. I sure wish we had pictures of that to scrap!
My least favorite bug would be ants. They are just a pain.

Beth S said...

Love all you cards. I have the same picks as you but for different reasons. I dislike spiders as we have some nasty biters here and love ladybugs are they keep my garden nasty bug free.

Trish said...

I picked the Box Elder Bugs, because when my kids were little they would catch them and then race them. Fun memories!!! My least favorite would have to be cockroaches!!! I used to live in Arizona and they have roaches there that could wear a saddle!!!

Carine Hartman said...

My least favorite bug is an Asp. I got stung by one and was sick for two days. I LOVE ladybugs and even have a collection of ladybug items all in my scraproom. Your cards are fantastic; such inspiration.

Anonymous said...

The more legs it has, the more I loathe the creepy crawly. My favorite bugs are butterflies, but not moths. They skeeve me out, too. We just saw Monsters vs. Aliens last night and thet big moth critter gave me the willies, lol.

Spiders definately make me jump the most when they just appear out of no where. I love katydids, they are just so unique and I love the way you have to really look hard to notice them in the bushes.

Melanie said...

I hate tarantulas! and I also despise any spider that is bigger than a dime... ugh! they give me the Heebie Jeebies!

I don't know many people who are fond of spiders. I must say I freak out over wasps. Something about those dangly leg--eewww! But I do agree that ladybugs are cute, and aren't they supposed to be good luck?

The bumble bee gets my vote for fave and the vote for least fave goes to spiders and anything else with more than 4 legs!

Kathy said...

I don't even know if I could pick ONE bug I hate the most---I don't like pincher bugs, or spiders, or millipedes, or stink bugs, or cockroaches.....but I do like ladybugs and will even hold them. And I love butterflies, and enjoy going into butterfly gardens where they land on me! Go figure. Your frog cards are just adorable.

Erica said...

I used to be deathly afraid of spiders, they would send me screaming to the top of a bookshelf, but then I discovered cockroaches in Belize and those sent me screaming instead. Yuck, can't stand those things. Okay onto happier thoughts...dragonflies. Their irradenscent colours are so fascinating to me.

stinker said...

i love how you've used the line in so many different ways!

my favorite bug would have to be the ladybug and my least favorite is so icky i don't even want to type it......the spider eeeeek!

stinkydudette said...

Gracie Ann Tan said...

Love lady bugs! They are too cute. My least favorite would be ants. Especially those red ants. I just saw a bunch of them on our dining table yesterday! Eew! There were so many they lead a trail all the way from the kitchen to the living room. Well I sprayed them all off now so they're gone. But it's summer here so I'm guessing there'll be more of them soon.

StampinCathy said...

Wow this is some major inspiring MOJO! Love all everything. Ok I hate any live bug and the only bugs I like are on a rubber stamp or sticker. LOL
Ok I'm with you on spiders and I would have to say ladybugs and of course the colors of butterflies.

Vangee said...

Spiders creep me out! Remember the Harry Potter episode with the giant spider? Had to cover my eyes. Ladybugs are the best. I love your cards with the frogs on them. I have nephews that love the outdoors!

Diana B said...

I really don´t like spiders and I love Lady Bugs, they are so bright read that you become happy just by looking at them :-)

Savitri said...

Just pure CUTENESSES!!! Wow, lots of great stuff here!!

Jodee said...

I'm right with ya, I hate spiders! Ewww! I think butterflies are pretty though, if I had to pick a bug to like.

NanaBeth said...

That's enough card inspiration to last me a year-they are incredible. The Great Tomato Hornworm makes my skin crawl. I use to pay my kids 25 cents each to pull them off my plants-and 30 years ago that was pretty good money. I wish there wee still fireflies around-it breaks my heart my grandchildren have never seen one.

Maria said...

My least favorite bug would be a cockroach they're just sooo gross!!!

I don't have a favorite bug, but if I had to choose one it would be a ladybug!

Thanks for the chance to win.

Debbie said...

I really dislike spiders, but I would have to say the cutest little bug I ever did see was a walking stick. He used to hang around our driveway when we lived in florida - we named him Bill. :)

Michelle D. said...

My least favorite would have to be cockroaches or wasps! My favorite would have to be dragonflies. I love the HOPPY Birthday card :)
