Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
And here is the card I created for this Challenge.
I have used the Bugaboo "Witch Cat" this may be a old image thats been discontinued as I was unable to find it on their website, but I felt it was just right for my card as I know children love anything with spiders and cats, or at least my grandchildren do.
Ive printed the image onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I used the Memory box die to cut it out and inked around the edge, then used the Spider corner also from Memory box to use as a overlay.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and the papers I have used are from The Paper Shelters "Studies of a Witch" digi paper set, the first a deep purple and the second a paler one on which I have used a Martha Steward spiderweb border punch, then on top of this is a orage one which has been placed on black card. These were all layered up on a black first mount.
The the mounted image was placed towards the left and then I have punched out Memory Box bats in several sizes and a spider which I hung from the corner spider web, and the final flourish is the spider charm in the bottom left hand corner.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration.
