Outdoor Fun With Bugaboo

A new challenge starts today at Catch the Bug and the theme is  Outdoor Fun. Here in the UK we have been enjoying some lovely hot weather, not your typical British Summertime and the evening air has been fragrant with the smell of barbeques!


Materials used: 
Bugaboo Digi Stamp – Guy BBQ
designer paper from stash
15cm square card blank
X-Press It card
acrylic sentiment stamp
black archival ink pad
Copic pens

The image is printed on X-Press It card, coloured with Copics trimmed to size and edged with a Copic pen.

The sentiment is stamped on an off cut of white card, trimmed and edged with the same colour used to edge the image.

The front of the card blank is covered with the designer paper and the two elements attached to it. The coloured image has been attached using foam pads to give some dimension.   

I hope you will come and join in the fun at Catch the Bug. All details of how to enter and the prizes on offer are on the blog.

Don’t forget next week sees the start of Bugaboo’s annual Christmas in July set of fun challenges, a different challenge for each day and wonderful prizes on offer. Make a date to join in the fun!

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.
