Challenge #6 Let's Play Quirky Dressing up - (kids or pets) and include some ribbon.

Hi it's my turn (Cazzy) to set the challenge and I decided that we should play Quirky Dress up, I hope you will have fun playing along with this one!

To see who won the last challenge see the post below this one.

Now for this challenge I want to see projects that include children dressed up in costumes being something they are not, like animals, nurses, firemen, superheros even Halloween monsters, or it could be pets in costume, a dog dressed as a bee for example. Bugaboo have lots of great digi images you could use, or you might have photos of your kids or pets dressed up to show us.

Please also add ribbon to your project, because one of our lovely sponsors is Crafty Ribbons.

Our lovely sponsors this time are:

Who are providing first prize of Ribbons to UK entrants of these lovely new ribbons exclusive to Crafty Ribbons:

or a voucher to non UK entrants ( UK entrants can choose voucher or ribbons)


 Who are providing 7 images of your choice for second prize, and 2 images of your choice for third prize, and have provided all images that the team used.

Now for some inspiration from the team:

First our Guest Designers

For my image, I chose this adorable Rainy Day Bear - Rain Rain from Bugaboo Digi Stamps and I coloured him with my Prismacolor pencils.  I used My Creative Time Scalloped Stitched Ovals to die-cut the image and layers. On the base of the card, I added a panel of patterned paper and some polka dot ribbon that I won from Crafty Ribbons (thank you, Ali!). I stamped a sentiment from Impression Obsession Sentiments 1 clear stamps and doodled faux stitching around the edge of the patterned paper.  I decided to keep this card fairly CAS as I wanted it to be suitable for a male.  I think the little bear needs some cheering up!

This card was made with the Awesome Bugaboo stamp called "Bugaboo Brats Bugs-Butterfly". Isn't she just the cutest? I colored her up with my Copic Markers and white gel pen. I cut out a butterfly template and embossed it with a dot Sizzix Embossing folder, added some wire for the antenna's and a couple little bows to the top for decoration. Then added some mini glitter flower shapes.

Lorraine also used Rainy Day Bear - Rain Rain and how spooky - the same colours and nearly the same layout as Kitty lol. 

2 month Guest Designer 


I used two adorable little stamps by Bugaboo Kidlet Doctor & Kidlet Nurse Aren't they just darling playing dressup. I combined with a sweet red/white gingham ribbon, DCWV Sunday Afternoon Stack with silver stickles and an old SU stamp collection Happy Healing.

Finally the Design Team:


I worked with this beautiful digi AKV pirate monkey-sword from Bugaboo stamps 
and I made this pirate ship....AHOY!!!

For my today project, I decided to make a Gift Bag using the sweet image Baby Flower 1 , from Bugaboo Digi Stamps. I used Spectrum Noir, some glitter and different papers. For flower I used PL1, PL2 and PL3. For color skin I used FS1, FS2, FS5 and FS8. Finally for a diaper I used CG1, CG2 and DG3.

Hi people! Today in my project, I choose two beautiful digis from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps. I used to the Kidlet-Wizard  and Kidlet-Witch. I made a card, a castle for  the magic party to the children. The little witch wearing a small loop on your clothes. I colored the digis with Acuarelable pencils and Spectrum Noir pencils.

For this week project, I got from our sponsor Bugaboo, the lovely Bobblehead Kids Bunny, an adorable little girl dressed up as the Easter Bunny, perfect to match with an Easter card. I colored the digi with Graph´it markers.

I have here two little boys dressed as rabbits. I started off with the very cute Bugaboo Brat - Boy Easter Bunny, who is fast asleep, then I thought what is he sleeping on - had to be Easter eggs they were perfect, and I added a friend who is carrying a WOE Big Egg, because all the digis come in .png as well as .jpg it was easy to create this scene. The ribbon is a Crafty Ribbons exclusive Animal Silhouette - Rabbits.

Come and play Quirky with us.
