Catch the Bug #7

Well I made it, the last challenge! It’s Freebie Friday with a present, you pick a present and add the elements in it. There was some issue with the image not coming up as a freebie on the website so the deadline has been extended for 24 hours, every cloud has a silver lining!

Materials used:SAM_1806(watermarked)
Bugaboo Digi Stamp – Rudolph-Rudolph
Docrafts Christmas greetings stamp
black archival ink pad
Copic pens
Papermania Christmas DP – 3 designs
gold trim cream ribbon
gold brads
A5 white card blank
stamping card

I printed out my image and coloured it with Copics. I cut a large tag shape from white card and covered it with designer paper before setting an eyelet in it at the top. I matted and layered Rudolph onto another design of paper having run a black pen around the edges of both. I attached a strip of the third paper to the left side of the card blank and covered the join with a length of ribbon and added a small piece of the same ribbon to the tag. I set a brad in both left hand side corners and stamped the Christmas greeting in the top right corner of the card. Finally I attached my tag using 3d foam pads.

I really enjoyed the challenge of trying to get 7 projects made in just a week but feel I may need a little rest now! Apart from everything else my study is in need of a good clear up with the remains of the crafting frenzy scattered everywhere and my end of school year clear out from school dumped in the corner waiting to be sorted ready for September. I also have a little collection of lovely goodies to enjoy from the children I have taught over the past year- some of which look very yummy!

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
