Just Bugz

Good morning Stampers! Hope you had a great weekend.

I had some stampin' playtime this weekend and I can't put down this set! I LOVE the Just Bugz!

I'm still using that designer paper from My Mind's Eye that I misplaced and then found AFTER Valentine's Day.

I discovered a new product at CHA. Well, not new, but new to me... I found out while doing Make and Takes that a lot of Scrapbook stores use this product. It's called Zip Dry Paper Glue. I know, I know... where have I been? I love it! It dries fast, but gives you enough wiggle time. If you get outside the edges... like if it smooshes out, let it dry, then simply rub it off. I've already gone through one bottle, although it lasted a long time! Do you use it?

I stamped the cute little bug on the cardstock, then colored him in. Then, I stamped him again onto the designer paper and cut out his wings and body. On the wings, I applied a tiny layer of Zip Dry on the inside part (closest to the bugz body), then let it dry. When dry, I lifted each wing and added a foam dot under it. His head I stamped again on Neenah White, cut out, colored, then added a foam dot under it too. I thought this little guy was screaming for some googlie eyes!

Paper: Irresistable, My Mind's Eye, Neenah White, Med. Baby Blue Prism, Chocolate Chip (SU!).

This card is absolutely adorable Cami. Love the Bugz and the colours are gorgeous!!

By the way, Zip Dry is awesome!! What is even better though is Beacon 3in1. It's made by the same company but doesn't have the same clogging issues. It is cheaper too - check it out next time you need to stock up! Enjoy your 'new' find girl!! xx

Can you say ADORABLE? I love it. I like you you added all the 3D to the little bug. His face is cute with the google eyes, great idea.
