TSMONDAY, Bring On The Bugs!


Happy Monday Everyone! This weeks Totally Stampalicious Challenge is to include a bug on your card or project!

For my card today, I used the new Bugaboo image Deacon Bugs, now available in stamp form at Totally Stampalicious! He's such a cute little guy, and he just happens to like bugs!

I'm always attracted to cards I see with circles, I never think to use them, so I made a point of giving it a try with this dp I had in my stash, that was perfect for this challenge! I got the dp at a local scrapbooking store, it's called the ants go marching by piggy tales!

I stamped Deacon and coloured him with copics. Then the rest was pretty easy. I used a couple different sizes of circle punches for the dp and backing.

The card base is black, with a piece of daffodil delight that I had in my stash that already had the edge punched. Then I stamped it with the canvas background stamp in matching ink.

Some of the circles are popped up and I finished it off with some ribbon!

I'm also entering this in the Bugaboo Catch the Bug challenge, Anything Goes!

Join us in our challenge by creating something with a bug and upload your creation to the Totally Stampalicious Blog! You may win a prize, and all Totally Stampalicious Guest Designers are chosen from the challenge participants!

Have a Great Day!
Laurie
