Some Buggy Loves Ya!

Hi Friends!  This is an early post since I have 2 POSTS on my blog today--ack!  So much to do, so little, little time, LOL!  If you're visiting here make sure and scroll up to see the other post for Mo's Digital Pencil Blog Hop as well (it will post at 3:30 am EST)!

**************************
Pink Cat Studio Digi Release!!

If you're a regular reader of my blog, then you've seen me do another Explosion Box HERE!  They are super fun to make but they ARE a Labor of Love I tell ya.  Not hard to do, just time consuming and for this Explosion Box below I had to change all the dimensions so that took me awhileto figure out :o)  You can find directions to make an Explosion Box HERE on SCS! (I cut the corner squares out, cuz I like it to pop all the way open)



Today Pink Cat Studio has a fabulously fun Digi Stamp Release for you all--they are all Super Cute (well, yes they really ALL are)!  I used this cute "Luv Bug-Ladybug" and matching sentiment for my project today.  My dp is a mix of PTI and Doodlebug--kept to the black, white & red theme :o)  This explosion box I designed so it would hold a gift card in the center panel--what a fun way to give a gift don'tcha think?!  The empty white scalloped circle is so someone can put a note or fun sentiment on for the recipient!

 I colored my image with Copics (R29,R27,R24,R22/C9,C7,C5,C3), cut her out and added her and the sentiment to the gift card holder with dimensionals!  The gift card holder is made to stand up by flaps I folded on the bottom of the holder, cut a slit in my red cs and attached the flaps underneath with Scor-Tape.


This closer-up pic shows the flowers swirling around on acetate--to do this I cut a circle out of a transparency and then cut it into a spiral, attaching both ends to either side of the box.  Then I added these fun Petaloo Dazzler Flowers (super sparkly, love 'em and guess what--they're 25% off HERE) flowers to the acetate swirl--this will bend up when the box is closed and then spring ALIVE when open, hee hee!

 
This is the lid & outsidde of the box--I colored and cut another "Luv Bug-Ladybug" image and added it to some nestabilitie cut-outs with dimensionals.  Some more Petaloo Flowers and pearls and then I coated the Ladybug's wings & antennae with some diamond glaze for a nice shine!  If you are interested in a pic tutorial and/or directions & dimensions on how I did this, email me and let me know---if enuff of you want it I will do it after I get back from CHA!!

Now hop on over to the Pink Cat Studio Blog HERE to see the rest of the fab DT projects and as always you can shop for your new Digi's right HERE!  (those cute ROBOTS are perfect for Valentine projects--stop by tomorrow to see mine)!!
