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…
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 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.
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!
