Bugaboo Stamps make such fun and quirky stamps – I love the fun and life in them – and the sentiments always make me laugh!
So this card is a real summer stunner. Ladybirds had to feature high on this card – I love them but sadly we don’t see as many nowadays as we used to when I was a littel girl. For those of you who follow this page it probably comes as no surprise that I had to do some decoupage with this one too.
I printed the image several times. Made an extra frame with the ladybird. Cut out several layers to decoupage up after they had been coloured using my Copic Ciao’s. When done I layered it all up on a 6 x 6 quite card.
For this image I was a bit torn about what to do, I printed out small and big images and also made a background of the stamp. In the end I decided it was such a beautiful image on it’s own in it’s simplicity that it didn’t need a fanfare around it.
So with that in mind I printed the image – BIG – and coloured it with my Zig watercolour pens. I used a bit of brown card for some matting and finished up adding a simple Happy Birthday sentiment cut in brown with a yellow shadow. Everything was added to a big 8 x 8 inch white card – voila!
This week’s card is made with Art Palette from QKR Stampede.
When you are a crafter – I think we are all drawn to a pain palette. Part of me wanted to go with a tone on tone colour scheme for the palette, but in the end I decided to go all out and add lots of colour – just as you often see the palette. It is such a great and versatile design – and can be used for any occasion. It works great as a background to another image – or indeed as the main design with a burst of colour behind it. I may add some other images to this page later…..
I am absolutely obsessed with wreaths at the moment – well it’s been a while – just love what you can do with them. So when choosing an image for this weeks card it had to be the Shamrock Circle. It is such a beautiful and versatile wreath/circle and you can add anything at all to it.

Sherry West is our sponsor this week and she is kindly donating 2 images from her store to the challenge winner.
card was made by printing the image and colouring in with my favourite Copic
Ciao pens. I added some fine glitter to the acorn and made the colours pop by
using a couple of brown gems. The image was then layered onto a tree and
background papers. One of the background papers had a lined border of glitter
added too. Everything was mounted onto a 6 x 6 inch white card and a peel-off
sentiment was added to complete the card.
