It’s All In The Mind!

It’s new release day at Bugaboo Stamps and I got to play first! (Well all the DT actually). I especially liked the little car and motivational quote and decided it would make a great wall hanging for my craftroom.


Materials used:
Bugaboo Stamps – Attitude Car
X-Press It card
black and red card
Copic pens
square red gems
silver eyelets
red ribbon
glossy accents

The image and sentiment are printed on X-Press It card as one piece and coloured with Copics. The windows are glazed with Glossy Accents. When dry it is trimmed, matted and layered on the black and red card.

Two eyelets are set at the top and a piece of ribbon threaded through to hang it from.

Finally the gems are added at each corner.

I think this will make a good inspirational piece to put in my craftroom, especially for the days when things are not going so well. So often a change in attitude to a situation, while not acutally altering the situation itself, can help in coping with it.

If you are inspired by my offering today why not head over to ‘Catch the Bug‘ and see what other members of the DT have produced. There you will also find the links to the Bugaboo Stamps store and all the information about the currant challenges.

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.


I would like to enter the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday Challenge #278-279 Р Anything Goes
Crafting With Friends #41 – Anything Goes
Creative Fingers Challenge #128 – Anything Goes
The Paper Players #340 – CAS on the go (must use a vehicle)


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.
