I picked up another fun new cut file in my latest traipse over at CUP, Tri-Fold Scalloped Top Card by one of my favorite SVG designers, Rae Carr.
I recently picked up some new Gina Marie Dies “Gone Fishing” and I had grabbed this fun image from Bugaboo Stamps called Girlz – wiggle the bait to go with them. Well as it happens, I have been waiting for just the right project to use the paper stack I won from DCWV a few months back.. and this was it! It’s a gorgeous paper stack called Coastal, filled with all sorts of cool card sheets.. including some pearl foiled and printed linen pages.
I added in a dual stitched frame using my Lil’Inkers dies and added the catch of the day chalkboard look using a Zig Chalk Pastel Pen. The inside net was created using the lattice portion of the Gina Marie Lacey Lattice die set I got a month or so back. The fish was colored with Tim Holtz Distress ink pads, as was the chalk board frame and the nets and rod.
The base card was cut from a Craft Smith solid color card stack on my Cricut Explore and the image was printed on Canson Mixed Media, then colored with Chameleon Pens.
Adhesives for this project were Zig Photo Tape and Zig 2 way glue.
I was naughty….this was supposed to be my DT project for the new Bugaboo Stamps Challenge starting on the blog in January… but I was impatient to share it. Soooo…. guess I’ll be doing another project this weekend lol.
Be sure to subscribe to the blog, or follow me on Facebook etc if you want to be alerted to the new challenge. All you Bugaboo Stamp fans, get your creative juices flowing.. this one is exclusively for Bugaboo Stamps Projects and prizes are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps every month. Woo Hoo.. we love our Bugaboo Stamps, so the DT team are a bunch of happy little clams…. and ….we have a new DT joining us for the Bugaboo Challenge too 🙂
Slightly off topic and I will be posting about this tomorrow too.. I just had a quick peek to see what new Gina Marie Dies are available and saw some fab deals on some Deep Red Rubber Stamps ..I was drooling over the vintage ones… specially at those prices. They will be fab for my vintage/steampunk backgrounds. AND for any of you old Cricut Explore owners who never got the Bluetooth Adapter... I also saw they have a handful of them available .. $10…… so if you always wanted one.. now’s the time to go grab one, they don’t have many in stock.
