Bug Me

There are quite a few children's sets in the main catalog that are lots of fun!  This one, Bug Me, was one of my favorites.  I only wish Stampin' Up! would have included some fun "buggy" sayings in this set, too!  Or had a complimentary set with some greetings!  So…making a Happy Birthday card was the next best thing for me…that is mainly what I need for kids cards anyway.

 

 

I had a scrap of the Designer Paper from Pinwheels on Parade laying on my desk, so I built my card around the colors in it!  The base is Midnight Muse and I layered on Baja Breeze and then the Designer Paper.  I stamped the colorful catepillar from Bug Me on a strip of Whisper White by using my Summer Starfruit, Baja Breeze and Real Red markers to ink it up.  It is layered on Real Red cardstock that I punched with the Scallop Border Punch along the bottom.  I added a Summer Starfruit and Real Red flower cut from Floral Frame Framelits with a Dahlia button in the center!  I've been hoarding them, and thought it was time to use one!  Finally, I added the Teeny Tiny Wishes "Happy Birthday" greeting, stamped with Midnight Muse ink on Baja Breeze and cut with a flag on one end, then tucked under the flower that is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals!

 

It's a fun and cheerful card!

 

I'm ordering the next round of Ribbon Shares on Friday, so it's not too late to get in on any of the ribbons you want, not just the In Colors.  Stampin' Up! ribbons are the BEST!  I wrap them carefully around chipboard then place in a plastic bag so they stay nice and neat!  You can see more details HERE!
