Bugaboo Birthday Bash Day 1

This week Bugaboo Stamps are celebrating their seventh birthday with seven days of challenges all based on a main theme of Under the Sea. Having enjoyed the Christmas Chaos week last year I could not miss the opportunity to have some more fun. However my week has been somewhat busy so not all the posts will be in the right order and there will be more than one on some days as time is now running short!

The first challenge is a Photo Inspiration.


Here is my take on it:

Materials used:
Bugaboo Stamps – Mini Set AKV Under the Sea
Bugaboo Stamps – Dollar Birthday Cake

X-Press It card
Copic pens
dark blue and yellow card
A5 card blank

I made up the cake by using the birthday cake as the background and adding the various sea creatures to the layers before printing it on X-Press It card and colouring it with copics. It has then been matted and layered onto yellow and dark blue card. (It looks black in the photo because I am struggling a bit trying to get to grips with new software. My usual photo editing programme refused to transfer to my new laptop and is no longer produced.)

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.
