Bugaboo Stamps New Release - Sign It Snowman

My card features one of the new releases in the Bugaboo Stamps Store today, Sign It Snowman.

I thought the blank space was perfect to create tag.

I coloured the image with Copics, and a white gel pen.


I partially fussy cut the image, matted onto red and green cardstock, and added some green and red shimmer cord.

The sentiment (in the blank space) was added in MS Word.

Bugaboo Stamps - Anything but a Card


My Dt project for the Catch the Bug blog today is a wedding invitation, featuring the Bugaboo image called Floral Doodles 02 that I printed onto white cardstock and embellished with white pearls.


The glasses, wine bottle and ice bucket are store-bought embellishments.

Bugaboo Stamps - This Week's Challenge


This week there is a theme challenge over at Bugaboo Stamps' Catch the Bug blog:

It's all about the NUMBERS!

My card features the Bugaboo image, Sketchy Girls (the precoloured version) that I matted onto red cardstock. (I added a little extra colouring with my Copics)

The bg paper is own-made - in MS Word, featuring the number 4.

I also added a punched red cs border, lace and ribbon.
