Stamp What?! ~ Cute as a bug!


Hi friends!

It's time for another installment of Stamp What?!

This series was created by my son a couple of years ago

when we were talking about my really, really, 


old wooden Stampin' Up! stamps.

He had an idea - he'd chose one and give it to me blindly!

Once I see it, I create the card - great teamwork!

This month, he chose:

Cute As A Bug, circa 2003

Me:  "Oh, cuuuuuuute one!  

And why did you chose this stamp set?"

Him: "Because you love dragonflies (yes! I do!)

and our night bike rides - we see a lot of bugs."

LOL!  Yes, that is true, too!

Here is my card:

Here's how I updated it ...

1.  I used current dies from the last year or so from MFT Stamps

2.  I've used several stamps to compliment is, 

like this Taylored Expressions simple strips.  

I used it because it was already on my desk :)

 I did cut off the 'friend' from the sentiment strip and added a die cut 

one instead to give it a little more drama.

3.  Colored with Copics, which I didn't own in 2003!

Barb and Jeanette, who share many of my crafty collabs,

are also joining me this year.

I do love this series as it was created by my son,

who is working hard at the moment juggling Scouts & summer school ..

I shouldn't call it that ... it's EXTRA school in the summer, lol.

He's in a performing arts school and a 2nd language and physical ed

are required but there's no room in the year's curriculum -

so the students do it on their own.

We've been working out together on and off (I do it mostly alone)

so it's fun to have an exercise buddy  - AND these crafty experiences!

I'll see you on my next blog post soon!

Thanks for stopping by!
