8th Birthday Bash at Bugaboo

Today is the first day of a week of birthday celebrations at Bugaboo Stamps. The main theme is Birds, Butterflies & Birthday Wishes with a different additional theme each day.

For my sample I have chosen to go with butterflies.


Materials used:
Bugaboo Digi Stamps – Butterfly Globe
X-Press It card
Copic pens
liquid gloss
white card

I used the blank version of the globe and added my own sentiment then printed it out on X-Press It card and coloured it with Copics. After cutting it out I positioned the image on a folded piece of A4 card and cut around it to make a shaped card.

To get the glass of the globe I used liquid gloss. On reflection it may have been better to use embossing ink and powder and the wetness of the gloss made some of the colour run in the image. It also is quite brittle so any bending makes it crack.

I hope you can join us for the celebrations, look out for the different challenges as I am sure there will be at least one to your liking, and there are a lot of prizes on offer too. You can find all the details at Catch the Bug.

Thanks for dropping 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.

    Bet it took quite a while to get all the liquid gloss on the globe, looks great though, especially with the touch of blue.
    Thank you for joining our ‘No patterned papers’ challenge this week at Allsorts.
