Bugaboo Christmas In July Day 7 – Freebie Recipe Challenge

Today is the final day of the Christmas in July event at Catch the Bug. The final theme is Freebie Recipe Challenge. Create a project using the freebie following recipe
Black, White or Kraft with a POP of colour and sparkle.



Materials used: 
Bugaboo Digi Stamps – Friday Freebie
Neenah Desert Storm Kraft card
white card
red card
diamond sparkles
acrylic greeting stamp
archival black ink pad
A4 snowflake embossing folder
Copic pens
white gel pen

Print the image on the kraft card, colour with Copics and a white gel pen and trim to size. Add diamond sparkles glitter to the ground at the bottom of the image. Stamp the greeting on a snippet from trimming the image.

Emboss the A4 white card with the snowflakes folder and use it to make an A5 card blank. Mat the image and the greeting with red card and attach to the front of the card blank.

I did find colouring on the Neenah card was trickier than using X-Press It card but needed the kraft card for the challenge. Perhaps we can persuade the producers of X-Press It card to develop a kraft version as well!

I hope you have enjoyed the week of challenges at Catch the Bug, there were certainly a variety of them! Congratulations if you managed to enter any of them and good luck in the prize drawers. If any of you managed to enter every day I think you need a gold star. I have done it both as a competitor and as a design team member and the later is much easier (we have the challenges in advance to prepare early!)

Thanks for popping in. Take care.

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.

Leaving you with the inspiration of God’s Word in Philippians 1:6 which says, “For I am confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will continue to perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” Have a blessed day!
