Doodlebug Design | Fairy Garden Box Cards

I am so excited to be kicking off a few weeks of Fairy Garden inspiration on the Doodlebug Design Blog!  As soon as I saw this collection, I fell in love with all of the adorable little icons... the fairies, the mushrooms... and all of those cute little bugs!!  I've always said... only Doodlebug can make a cute bug!  Along with some of the papers in the collection, I decided to use the new Fairy Garden and Bugs & Kisses Doodle Stamps to make some fun box cards. Take a peek...

As I mentioned... I just love the little bugs in the Bugs & Kisses Doodle Stamps!  I decided to make a card featuring them in a meadow.  The flower and mushroom stamps made it easy to create a sweet little scene!  I used some Gingham Linen Petite Prints for the grass and the clouds side of the Glow Bugs Paper for my background.  I will be stocking up on this paper... it's perfect for creating scenes and making backgrounds!

Here's a close up of those cute little critters!

Just as the bugs love hanging in the meadow, I though those adorable little Fairies from the Fairy Garden Doodle Stamps would love hanging out in the clouds!  I created this fun card featuring them floating about.  The sun stamp is from the Hippity Hoppity Doodle Stamps.

How cute are those fairies??!!  I already have more cards planned using both of these Doodle Stamp Sets... they are absolutely adorable!  Have you created any projects using the Fairy Garden Collection and Doodle Stamps? Be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook and Instagram, we love to see your projects!  Also, be sure to stop by the blog over the next couple of weeks for more Fairy Garden inspiration.  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Hippity Hoppity Box Cards

Are you ready???  I have some REALLY fun news to share...  the Doodlebug Hippity Hoppity SVG files will be available starting tomorrow in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop and they are ADORABLE!!! (They will also be submitted to the Silhouette Store)  I was lucky enough to get a sneaky peek of the files, and used a couple of them to make some fun box cards.  Take a peek...

I'm going to be honest, it took me a good hour to decide which files to use... they are all so fun!  But in the end, the Bunny in Bucket and Carrot Car files won out!  I just love converting Doodlebug's SVG files from flat to 3D!  If you'd like to see how I do it, I did a tutorial a few years ago giving general instructions for how I convert a file.  You can find that tutorial here.

I started with the bunny in the bucket... that little cottontail sticking up in the air just won me over!  I used the purple side of the Hippity Hoppity paper for my bucket and trimmed it with some Woodgrain Petite Prints.  I cut the little bunny bottom from some petite prints and used the pink check side of the Easter Egg Stripe Paper for the little paw pads.  I embellished the file with some Odds & ends pieces and a glitter sprinkle for the pail handle.

Ok, how ridiculously cute is the little bunny driving a carrot car??  I mean... really...  I used the carrot side of the Mr. Cottontail paper for the body of his car and the grassy side of the Baby Carrots paper for the carrot top.  The rest was pieced using some coordinating petite prints.  I love how easy it is to find papers to match throughout all of Doodlebug's collections!  I finished off the car with some mini jewels on the tires, a chit chat piece and a carrot sprinkle from the Hippity Hoppity Shaped Sprinkles.

If you make something with the Hippity Hoppity Collection and/or Cut files, be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook and Instagram.  We love to see what our fans create!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lori Whitlock | Easter Bunny Truck Card

 Hi Everyone!  I'm up on the Lori Whitlock Blog today with a tutorial showing how to assemble her new Box Card Truck Front End Easter Bunny file (SVG, Silhouette).  Take a peek...

How stinkin' cute is this card?  The bunny paws on the steering wheel just kill me!  No more hopping down the bunny trail... it's all zoom-zoom now!  I used some Petite Prints from Doodlebug Design to piece it all together.

The card also folds flat and fits into a 5x7 envelope.  For the full assembly tutorial, head over to this post on Lori's Blog.  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Hippity Hoppity Easter Egg Box Card

Do you remember those sugary Easter Eggs dioramas?  The egg was made from solid sugar and there was  a little scene inside the egg all made of candy??  As a kid, I thought that they were the most amazing things!  I decided to make a card version of these eggs using the Hippity Hoppity Collection.  Take a peek...

It might not be made of sugar, but I still think it's pretty sweet! I designed the shadowbox in the shape of an egg... and then used elements from the Odds & Ends Pack, and both the Icon and Mini Icon Stickers to create my little scene.  I love the different sizes of all these elements, you can add small, medium and large icons to your projects giving them more dimension!

Up close, you can see there are different layers of embellishments.  I just love the grass pattern on the b-side of the Baby Carrots paper!  and that chubby littly chicky is the cutest!

Here is a view where you can better see the dimension and layers in the card.  I finished off my card with a Chit Chat Sentiment and one of the adorable little Egg Hunt Shaped Sprinkles. All that's left is to mail it off to family!

Have you made any projects using the Hippity Hoppity Collection?  Be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook and Instagram.  We always love to see your creations!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
