Digging out the oldies

Time for my entry in Day 6 of the Holiday Chaos Challenges at Catch the Bug and this time the theme is Flashback Holiday, the brief is to use old paper from your stash and an old image. Now I am not certain how you discover which images at Bugaboo Stamps are old ones so I have used a couple that have been in my stash for a while in the hope that that covers it.


Materials used:
Bugaboo Stamps – Rudolph – rudolph
Bugagoo Stamps – AKV Santa Tree
acrylic greeting stamp
black archival ink pad
X-Press It card
stripey DP from stash
A4 white card blank

I have combined two digi stamps to make up my image, printed out on X-Press It card and coloured with Copics.

The mat is some stripey paper I found in my stash, not ever sure where it came from.

Once trimmed to size the image and the mat have been edged with a black pen before attaching onto the card blank.

Finally the greeting has been stamped at the bottom.

It’s the last day of chaos today so I am hoping to get my last card made up in time to enter. The problem now is there is less time before the cut off, I am at work this morning and have some furniture to build this afternoon – never enough hours in the day!

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.


I would like to enter my card into:

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.
