I'm all WASHI-d up with Bugaboo!

Hi there! 
 Today is an extra fun posting day for me as it's tutorial day at Catch the Bug ~ Bugaboo Stamp's inspiration blog.

For today's tutorial post, I thought I'd show you a great way to create a card, or project, without using any designer paper ~ surprise!  I adore my layers upon layers on my cards and I'm crazy for my mix 'n match designer papers :)

However, one of the most beautiful style of cards is CAS cards - easy breazy and super pretty!  

So what's one way of creating a card without the use of any designer papers?  
Grab some Washi Tape! =)

 Using a digi stamp like the ones at Bugaboo and Washi tape, it's an easy way to brighten up a card and keep it simple and let the image shine!
For today's card, I am showcasing the adorable Puppy Love digi - available in the store.  Any color/size/style of washi tape will do for your card or project.
For today's card, I used navy blue, hot pink and soft yellow washi tape and cardstock -and that's it!  Not a stitch of dsp anywhere! :)

I started with these few rolls and a classic design ....


That's it for today's tutorial! 
 I hope you are able to color up your Bugaboo stamps 
and play with the many challenges that go on each week!

Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
