Beatles and Bugs for #gdp072

One of the stamp sets that made me squill the most at on stage was the Beatles and Bugs stam set!!! Everyone around me was like really? I just thought it was so adorable. Maybe, it’s being rased by a science teacher. Maybe, she taught me to find beauty in unexpected places. Like the bright colors of beatles and bugs…..don’t get me wrong some bugs are just gross…like roaches…ewwwww….others thought like lady bugs are quite pretty. All red with their polka dots!!!  The beatles and bugs set defantly celebrates all the bright and fun colors of bugs…

Check out all of the different colored beattles and bugs you can make! I love this picture from the catalog because it shows you all the posibilities with this set! 

I was working on a card for the latest Global Design Project and stumbled across the perfect opertunity to use the fun stamp set. This weeks challenge is a CASE the designer challenge! 

I love the soft dots ontop of the crumb cake. And the stiching is amazing! One day I am going to lear how to sew! This card is so elegant and beautiful!  

I wanted to recreate her dots because I loved them so much! The thought was to stamp colored dots and then over stamp them with craft white to soften them up! And I did this using Cajun Craze, Dapper Denim, and Daffodil Delight. And it came out just like I wanted…I was looking around for a stamp set I wanted to use and decided on the Beatles and Bugs set. So I made my crumb cake square and chose a beatle… This is where things went sideways…it was at this point I decided to stamp the other beatles and bugs as my dots! By doing this though, I totally lost the beautiful soft feel of the card. I ended up with bold and fun! It works though…still staying with the card design made the bold bugs work! 

Are they not the cutest little bugs you have ever seen? I think so! And they were really easy to stamp. The stamps are multiple step stamps. So, you stamp the color then another color for some, and finally the black outline.  

I have been reacently really trying to make a effort to remember to decorate my envelope! So for this one I stamped my main bug on the outside front. And then on the back flap stamped all the bugs I used as dots.

Anddng little tuches to the card makes it even more special! And I just think these bugs are awesome!!! I still want to squill at how darn cute they are!!!!! 

If you have a child in your life who loves to explore the outdoors then this set is a must! How fun would it be to make them a woodsy card with some of these bugs!

  1. What a great card! I love your super colorful bugs! I’ve made several cards with this stamp set, but I have yet to do the two step stamping! I’m glad to hear it isn’t too difficult! We are buggy sisters on this GDP challenge, high five!

  2. I love how you’ve colored these bugs, Jennifer! Such a fun – and somehow beautiful – card! Thanks for playing along with this week’s CASE the Designer Challenge at the Global Design Project!
