Itzy Bitzy, Cutey Patootey?


I love, love, love these little bugz from C.C. Designs! They are so adorable! I was going to give this one to my husband, just for being such a great guy! But after I added the flowers, it really doesn't fit his personality anymore :-) I think I might add another little flower to the other bugz head and send it to my cousin Tricia, who I have written about previously. She has had a really rough week, and I think she could use a little pick me up.

Anyway, I just got these Luv Bugz from Christine at ATS this week, and I couldn't wait to do something with them. I had purchased the Junkitz Salsa Pad a few weeks ago, and I thought that would work great with these little bugz; it's such fun paper!

The base and the red are from Bazzill, not sure which colors exactly, I bought them at the CKC convention in preformed packs.

The base is 4 1/2 x 4 1/2. The White is Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select, of course! I stamped the Itzy Bitzy Luv Bugz with Brilliance Graphite Black ink. I cut that out with a Marvy Giga Scalloped Punch and then highlighted the edges with a light blue gelly roll pen. The bugz are colored with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS. I added Xmas Red Stickles to her flower, and then put a little blue gem in the middle for some dimension and sparkle. I layered that on the Bazzill red and added blue dots again with the gelly roll pen to mimic the circles in the paper.

I glued that on to the Salsa paper and then added my primas and brads before gluing that layer on top of the base to hide all my work. The brads are all Making Memories. I think it turned out so cute! I was very pleased with this one, and amazingly, this one didn't take me all that long. (I can stare at my desk forever trying to figure out what to do; my husband says that's because I have too much stuff - GASP - Blasphemy!)


Hope you enjoy your day today! Thanks for visiting!
