Summer Treats

Another Saturday and another challenge at Catch the Bug. This week there is a photo for your inspiration.

I have used two wonderful Bugaboo images for my sample.


Materials used: 
Bugaboo Digi Stamps –  Ice Cream Dog
Bugaboo Digi Stamps –  Kidz – Ice Cream
Imagine That Digistamp – Ice Cream Sentiments
Imagine That Digistamp – Ice Cream Parlour Digi Papers
X-Press It card
printer paper
white printer card
Copic pens

The two images are arranged on a Word document then printed onto X-Press It card and coloured with Copics.

Two Ice Cream Parlour papers are printed on white paper and the sentiment on white card. The papers are used to mat the trimmed image and to line the front of the card blank.

The sentiment is trimmed to size and attached to the card under the image.

I am writing this on a really hot afternoon so could really do with an ice cream myself or failing that a lemon sorbet. Gosh! I had better stop this line of thought as I am making myself hungry! The post actually goes live on the 24th which would be my Dad’s birth – day. He too loved ice cream, I am very much a daddy’s girl and miss him more as I get older. It’s funny that I find the passage of time brings more memories to mind than less but the ache of loss has lessened as the years have gone by.

The challenge at Catch the Bug runs for the week so why not come and join in. You will find more inspiration from the DT, full instructions and a link to the store on the Catch the Bug Blog.

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.
