Just Because - Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #23

This week's challenge over at Whimsical Wednesday is to create a "Just Because" card or project to let someone know that you are thinking of them. You must include either a digital image and/or sentiment on your project. 

This week Bugaboo Stamps is sponsoring the challenge!!!  Bugaboo's digital stamps are so so so adorable and fun!  I used the super cute Oz Scarecrow digital stamp for my tag.  Instead of printing the stamp and coloring it in (which I honestly have no experience with!), I chose to trace the stamp in Sure Cuts A Lot, then break apart the pieces and cut them out on my Cricut.  This was the first time I have tried this and while I was able to figure it out in SCAL, it took a while to get all of the layers to fit properly.  I think the time spent was worth it though!  My friend will really appreciate this little cutie and of course, the candy corn that comes with it!!! 

Here are some pictures!


 
I wanted to make him look worn so I added some stitches and distress ink.  He looks so cute all worn out!  :) 

I hope you enter the challenge over at the Whimsical Wednesday blog!  Our sponsor for this week is Bugaboo Stamps. They have generously donated seven digital stamps to one random winner who enters our challenge this week. To lean more about Bugaboo please head on over to their Catch The Bug Challenge Blog.

  10. Your scarecrow is absolutely adorable! I did not know you can use digi images in SCAL to create and cut the image. How do you do that? I would love to learn how to do this. Thank you!

  18. Melanie, you made the most adorable scarecrow I have EVER seen! I want to hug him. You made his hair incredible, and the twine and flower accents... just amazing. Not to mention the stitching, inking, and incredible colors you gave him with all those pieces. This ended up being a labor of love for you and it looks fantastic. Beautiful work! :o)

    Hugs and blessings! :o)
