You Light Up My Life Card with Bugaboo Digi Stamps
Happy Monday everyone!! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Although I am still trying to get rid of this upper respiratory issue, I did manage to go to a friend's birthday party on Sunday night. The music was loud, the food was amazing - BBQ Boar, lots of Sushi and a ton of beer (none for me), and lots of people having fun. I even made my first Strawberry Shortcake, that I brought with me. Yay!
Today I wanted to share a quick card I made for someone in town. She asked me to make a card for her husband who owns a lighting store and who she says is "the light of her life". I had literally JUST bought a digi stamp from Bugaboo Stamps that would be perfect! It's called "make it snappy you light up my life".
When you buy the digi it comes in several formats and the image is separate from the phrase box. One option is to print the phrase box empty, which is what I used on this card. I printed the image of the lightbulbs twice and heat set it. Then I used a mix of Tombow and Copic markers to color them in. For the metal part that goes into the socket, I used a Wink of Stella Silver Glitter Pen and over all the lightbulbs, I used a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Marker.
Come on...we need these bulbs to be shining as much as possible!! LOL
I then made a 5 1/4" square card base of white cardstock, to which I adhered a piece of decorative paper from a pad called Beautiful Moments by Carta Bella. Then I adhered the lightbulbs to the upper section of the card.
On the second printing, I colored in the center of two of the bulbs and the socket section on the other two bulbs, cut them out, adhered to the front with pop dots, colored them in and then added colored stickles. (More bling!)
Lastly I trimmed the black phrase box, printed out "You Light Up My Life" in Portuguese, trimmed the phrase, layered it on a piece of black cardstock and then adhered this below the bulbs. DONE!
