On my gosh...you're in for a treat today.  This super fun card is made with the 2017 Occasions retiring stamp set, Beetles & Bugs.

Keep these creepies and crawlies where they belong: on your stamping projects!  Mix and match layers and colors for all the shuddersome creatures you care to create.  Have fun coming up with your own "bug" greetings!

 Caught a Bug?

  1. On 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock, use images from retiring Beetles & Bugs to stamp bug "outline" with Early Espresso ink.  Stamp 2nd & 3rd step images with Pool Party, (retiring) Delightful Dijon and (retiring) Tip Top Taupe inks.  Adhere to 4" x 5-1/4" panel of Pool Party, then to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Tip Top Taupe card base.
  2. Adhere ribbon to card..3-1/4" piece of Delightful Dijon 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon and 2-3/4" piece of Pool Party 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon (both retiring).
  3. Loop Linen Thread onto back of Tip Top Taupe 1-7/8" circle (Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies).  Adhere circle to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  4. Create words for greeting using Labeler Alphabet stamp set as follows:
  5. BUG = solid rectangle with Pool Party ink, letters with Delightful Dijon ink
  6. Rest of the words with Tip Top Taupe ink
  7. Cut out each word and adhere to the stitched circle using glue dots.

This 32 piece stamp set may seem a little daunting at first.  But once you start playing with these bugs images, the magic starts to happen!  Plus, I'm sure you can come up with a lot of "sentiments" to go with this stamp set.  Like these...

  • Don't bug me
  • Love bug
  • Cute as a bug's ear
  • Caught a bug?

Be sure to add Bugs & Beetles to your shopping list and get it by May 22nd.  NOTE:  After May 22nd, stamp sets will be "while supplies last". 

Enjoy~Dawn O
