Bugaboo Christmas In July Day 4 – New Release Bingo

Time is rattling on and it is day four already. This time there is a bingo card for you to have a go at using today’s new release Bear Stocking . For those of you not familiar with bingo challenges the idea is to take three items from any row, vertically, horizontally or diagonally. (I chose the left hand side column). Of course there is nothing to stop you going really crazy and going for a full                                                                                        house! Eyes down and have fun!


Materials used:
Bugaboo Digi Stamps – New Release Bear Stocking
acrylic greeting stamp
X-Press It card
A4 snowflake embossing folder
A4 white card
Christmas designer paper
self-adhesive gems
white fun flock
white glitter
small gold bell
round corner punch
round corner rectangle dies

Print the image out three times (I cropped the second and third images to the parts I needed to safe card), colour with copics and fussy cut the two layers. Use the die to cut the complete image and a slightly larger die to cut a mat from the designer paper. Attach the topper to the mat.

On the top parts of the layers add fun flock to the stocking  and white glitter to the bear’s hat. Use glue gel to put the layers together.

Emboss an A4 sheet of white card with the snowflakes embossing folder and use it to make the card base.

Attach the matted image to the card and stamp the greeting using black archival ink.

Attach the bell to the hat and the gems at the heel of the stocking.

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.

    What a super card Pippa. Really enjoyed reading how you made this. I remember going to bingo with my Mum. It was good fun but also so stressful especially if you had to shout out.
    Maggies Den No. 10 lol! You can tell how long ago it was 🙂
