Celebrate For 2 Crafty Critter Crazies + Other News

Hello friends!  Happy April 1st which means it’s time for a new monthly challenge for the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge!  Remember that it’s always an “ANYTHING GOES + CRITTER” challenge to enter your creation.  We’re looking forward to seeing your projects!

This month we’re being sponsored by Digi Doodle Studios!  They were kind enough to provide images for the design team to create their projects with, so here’s what I’ve made for my challenge project:

I think I could probably celebrate with these cute little hedgies, couldn’t you?!🦔🦔

This image is called Hedgie Party from Digi Doodle Studios and it was super fun to color up for my card!  We can always use birthday cards in our stash, so I pulled out some papers from my stash…including some left over pieces to assemble the design.

I used a Simon Says Stamp stamp set to heat emboss the stars over the green decorative paper with gold EP.  I stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the paper from the same stamp set with black ink.  I cut out this panel with a square stitched die, layered over white cardstock and then attached it to a piece of orange top folding 5″ square card base.

I pulled out some gold mirror cardstock cut with a scallop square die and layered it over the design, wrapped some gold ribbon around it, placed the layered image panel over top of that with craft foam and added the bow.

Here’s a closer view of the image I’ve colored with Copic markers.  I’ve also used a white and gold gel pen to create some polka dots over parts of the image.

Hard to see in the photo, but I covered the big present bow with a glitter brush pen too.

Other news:

Just FYI that this post will be my final creation as a design team member for not only 2 Crafty Critter Crazies, but also for Digi Doodle Studios as well.  Although I adore everyone on these design teams very much, it’s just time for me to let DTs go for a while.
