Bugaboo CAS Challenge

Here is the card I have made for the Bugaboo Clean and Simple Challenge for this week. Although this is a very basic card, it is quite difficult to stop adding elements. So I stopped at two buttons and a few strips of card stock only.

Here is the blown up image that is on the front of my card. The digital stamp comes from Bugaboo Stamps, of course and I used my copics to colour in the image.

Just a Boy and his Dog

I have had this card sitting in my 'Project' draw for months now, trying to figure out what I was going to do with it. I firstly added some yellow patterned paper to the background but quickly removed that, then I had some Real Red Designer paper, and as you can see, I removed that too. What to do, what to do. I then decided last night at about 11 o clock, that I would remove all patterned paper and start again. This is what I came up with. I added the chipboard star and real red button this morning at 6 am. Now I'm happy.

I coloured this image from Bugaboo Stamps using my copic markers, although, it was a long time ago while I was trying to work out how to blend properly. I also used the technique inlaid embossing for the red and blue squares behind the coloured image.

Supplies used

More Weekend Cards

Here are the cards that complete the 3 card series with the Bundle of Joy stamp set from Stampin Up. They, like the previous post can be found in the Stamping Magazine that was released this month. I have changed them to suit the Stampin Up items I have.

Pumpkin Pie
So Saffron
Chocolate Chip
Whisper White
Border Edge punch
Pumpkin Pie Ribbon
Label Punch

Here is the closer view of the Stamps I have used. I have used my copics to colour in the bear and giraffe, instead of using the usual watercolour technique. I really like the way thy have turned out.
