Monster B-day

For Bugaboo Stamps: Catch the bug

One of the main reasons I began carding in earnest was because I loved to color as a child. This Bugaboo Monster was just the ticket. Colored with Copics then layered on Stormy Sky and then Red Velvet. The dry embossed copy paper is from a Silhouette cut homemade embossing folder with black ink pad swiping. Sentiment cut on Silhouette.

TIP: Cut a self healing mat down to size and use for your die cutting machine. Works like a dream once you figure out your sandwich. I cut my mat with my gardening pruning shear. Way easier than scissors. Of course nothing in this card was die cut, but I was playing with my Cuttlebug and seeing what layers would emboss best with my homemade embossing folders.

  1. What a fun card! I love that you used your Silhouette for so much of it, too. Great idea about the self healing mat. It’s always nice to find other possibilities that work, too.


    1. I do use the Silhouette to resize digis. It is easy to manipulate and print.Made the original investment pretty easy when I was needing some software to do this very thing.


  2. What a great card! Love that you used a Bugaboo image! Also love your embossing/inking technique and your tip…cool! Thank you for playing along with us at Catch the Bug!


    1. I sent this one to my brother-in-law. He is a beer man and do so much cake, so the inside I wrote that this monster only celebrates with beer. Great image for all ages.


  3. What a fun card and perfect for a man too. I agree it is perfect for all ages as a kid would also love this.
