DT Day ~ Bugaboo Stamps : A guy & his dog

Pin It
Hey everyone! It's Angela from Mermaids & monograms

I want to share a card I made with a digi stamp from our sponsor this month, Bugaboo Stamps. I used their Guy walking dog image. We are always on the go at different events for the kids so we rely on our neighbor quite a bit to walk the dogs for us! I just wanted a very simple card to give, since they are very simple people! I'll probably make some brownies to attach the card to as well! 


I treated myself to new markers from Amazon Prime day. They are by Artify. I don't have much to compare them to, but I love them. I want to get good at coloring/blending before I make the splurge on copics! haha! 

I also used some cardstock from my stash. I printed this paper when I had my Cricut Imagine! omg...how long ago was that?!!? 

Anyway, I hope you upload something to Connie's monthly challenge this month! Her theme is "Use your stash".

Question of the Week

Pin It

It's that time again!!
Remember.. I want you to answer the question
 in the comment section too!
AND
if you have a question to ask for an upcoming week add that in the comments too, if you ask a question and I use it you will win a prize!!

Here is today's question!! 
From our dedicated follower Karen Ladd
"What do you do with the cards and projects that you make? Do you give them away or let them pile up?"

AngelaI try and give them away unless it's something that I absolutely love that I made! I always feel like I never have the occasion of s card that I need though!

VeronicaLol, both, some I give to friends or family. The rest just pile up.

MarjiLast year I discovered a lady selling cards at a mall. I send her a bunch of cards every few months and she sells them for me. I get a little money here and there. Otherwise they pile up. I quit sending them to extended family because they aren't appreciated.

Kim- 
While I don't intend to, I allow them to pile up....and up....and up.

Sue-  I have piles of cards and other projects coming out of my ears. Whenever I need to send a birthday card I always make a fresh one, it just seems more personal to me than pulling one from my stash.

Connie- I actually have quite a stock pile for my own personal use. I send out all my own cards, I refuse to buy any! I also sell my cards on Etsy and at craft shows. I have also donated cards to places like women's shelters, to the military, Hospitals, Senior Centers and to other organizations. SO if you have a huge pile of cards that need to find a home may I suggest you donate them to organizations in your local area.



Got a question for us...don't be shy, ask us!!

DT Day with Bugaboo Stamps

Pin It
Sue from Sue's Paper Crafts here with you today. It is day to show off what I have made with my image from this month's sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps.
  
 
 

Once again I did my best to follow this month's challenge theme of Use Your Stash.
 
 
The colored pencils I used to color my image have been hanging around since 2011 or 2012. I also used a Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage CD to print the flowered paper on the back of the bookmark, I've had that for many years also.
The stamps I used on the back for the sentiment are from Inky Antics, I have had them since 2012. The flower stamp is from Hero Arts and a new item to my stash but they were on clearance so they have been in stock at the store where I bought them for a really long time.
I also added some Stickles to the flower centers and I have had them since 2010.
Please come on over to Connie Can Crop and play along with this month's Use Your Stash Challenge.
