First, as you know, Fridays are Freebie Fridays at Bugaboo Stamps. I don’t have a card using a freebie today, but make sure you check out Catch the Bug to see some of the fantastic samples my fellow DT members have shared. Then make sure you stop by the store to pick up your freebie and see what other great additions Jodie has.
Second, Bugaboo Stamps is sponsoring the Totally Paper Crafts challenge this week. It is a recipe challenge of 4 embellies, 3 papers, 2 ribbons/lace and 1 image. For me, this adds up to a big 5″ square card!
These Bugaboo Brats are so adorable and Isabella is ready for the beach. She is totally rockin’ her bikini and floaties! Although you don’t see much of it, my inspiration for colors came from the dp under Isabella. The paper came from a Target $ Spot pack — they have some cute papers, but you definitely get what you pay for! The layout is from MOJO Monday #132, which worked really well — except I made Isabella a bit too big and had a hard time getting my circle layer big enough. They need to make bigger Nesties! LOL! The Tempting Turquoise layer is embossed with Bloom Dots.
To achieve my proper ingredients for the recipe, I used two different types of May Arts ribbon — a wide satin and a thinner, sheer polka dot. I also used some fun Glitter Dots for my embellies. To add a few final touches, I added sand with Martha Stewart Florentine Gold glitter and Diamond Glaze to Isabella’s beach ball. Makes me think of my daughter, who is so excited for the summer and to go to the beach — which will be a first & I’m sure an adventure!
Make sure you check out what the TPC DT and a few of my Bugaboo DT members have put together for this challenge. Then, try your hand at the recipe! You’re bound to cook up something good!
