A week of chaos at Bugaboo!

Bugaboo stamps have just started a week of chaos with a challenge every day for a week. This year I am hoping to get an entry in for each one so be warned it could mean more than one post on a couple of days!

The first challenge is Anything goes with a ‘Here comes Santa Claus’ theme. I chose to make a quick and easy ATC card.

Materials used:SAM_2493(watermarked)
Bugaboo stamp – Sign it Santa
acrylic greeting stamp
black archival ink
Stamping card
Copic pens

Print out the image at the required size, colour in with the pens then cut to ATC size.

Use black ink and the greeting stamp to add a sentiment to the sign Santa is holding then run a black pen around the edges.

I did say it was a quick project but it was all time allows. As Christmas approaches it does get busier and the past few days have been spent editing the film of our Key Stage 1 Nativity. It’s quite a fiddly job lining up the right narration with the right clips in the right order but I think I have cracked it now!

Thanks for dropping by. 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.
