Thank you as always for your wonderful submissions.
Arlene and the Die Cut Divas.
The sponsor for Die Cut Divas this month is Bugaboo Stamps.
I've already mailed this card to a friend to cheer him up. The inside says "We couldn't get you a Rubber Duckie, so we got you a Floating Penguin". I know it's rather nonsensical, but, sometimes my brain just goes in that direction.
The sun glasses are filled with Glossy Accents, making for a mirror finish. This really did turn out cute and ok, even for a guy.
Enter the Die Cut Divas challenge of Summer Fun for June.
Our Dear friend Cindy has
retired from the DCD, and we need Your Help.
the Details and requirements
We are a small group
and work as a team to bring out each post. (Know of anyone who might be
interested? please pass this post on.)
1. DTs make 2 to 3 cards a month 2. DTs comment on entries according to the last number of the entry, e.g. 3 and 7, (#s 3, 7,13,17, 23, 27...).
3. We stay in contact on Facebook through our Designer
Facebook group. Almost 100% of our
information on upcoming sponsors, DT posting dates, etc is on our Facbook DT
group. Please check frequently,
4. Have cards ready and inserted in Design blog at least a week
prior to publishing the post so if anything happens (internet outage or a
forgotten post date), the post is still ready to go. This is not a MUST do, but certainly helps
being ready and supporting your other team members.
If you wish to become
a Die Cut Diva DT, please email us a firstname.lastname@example.org with

Arlene is our sponsor coordinator, but if you want or know of someone who
will sponsor us let her know, and between you and Arlene, the prospective
sponsor will be contacted. Sometimes a sponsor will provide digital
images, stamps or dies, but sometimes not.
Summer fun to me could very well be the combination of white clouds, blue sky, a bright sun and sipping a cool drink on the beach! :)
After I printed the "Fried" Chicken image from Bugaboo Digi Stamp, I colored it with coloring pencils. Then I use the inking tool and sponged distress ink to create the background. In order to add some perspective, I drew tiny birds and a sail boat.
There is still plenty time to join in the challenge. Come on over and play. It's been a real pleasure creating with the talented Design Team on Die Cut Divas. But my plate is getting too full and I have decided to step down. Today's post is my last post here, I would like to send a big Thank You to the Divas. Until next time, happy crafting!!
Hi everyone, Cathie here with a project for our Summer Fun challenge this month. The sponsor this month is Bugaboo Stamps, and the hard decision is trying to choose just one image to fit this theme as there are so many. I decided on Bugaboo Stamps JJ Beach and here is my project.
Let's have some SUMMER FUN! This month, it's all about summer fun.
It's just a Bug Pup Summer and I couldn't resist these pups. I used a colored image for the card on the right and an uncolored image on the left card, which I colored with Copic markers. I love a TWO FOR ONE. I did have similar colors in mind, so it was very easy to color and have fun with this pup.
I used some Novu black dots on the floaters on the hands on both cards. Fun and cute.
I put a bit of Blue Midnight Nuvo on the tire and swirled it a bit, giving the tire a tire-type shine.
Bugaboo images come in such a fun range and I couldn't resist our team's selections this month. Have fun and join in the challenge of Summer Fun.
This cute little pup is found at Bugaboo Stamps right here.
