It’s a good thing I got a few cards made over the weekend or I wouldn’t have anything to share this week!  I started the week a bit under the weather and am feeling about 80% better.  I hope when I wake up tomorrow I’m back up to speed because I’m seriously slow at home and work and I have plenty to do in both locations.

Today’s card demonstrates my modified Huggabug stamp.  I mentioned on my last post that I would modify the stamp to remove the wings if there was enough space to trim the “offending” (it’s not really, I just prefer no wings) rubber.  It wasn’t possible but I had no trouble at all trimming the wings from my other Huggabug stamp.  Here’s the card:

This new K&Co paper is so cute.  I used two of the patterns a couple of cards ago and actually had made this card first and used the leftovers to make the other card.  There wasn’t much left of the two sheets which is one of the reasons I prefer buying the smaller sized paper pads (plus they’re cheaper, plus they take up less space, plus the patterns are scaled down to a more friendly size for card making).  Living in NL can be a bit of a disadvantage when trying to find the smaller pads so sometimes I do end up buying the 12X12 pads – and will NEVER be able to use all the paper I own.

I used SU reinkers to colour the image and filled in the hearts and dots with clear sakura glaze (can’t be seen in the picture).  I also used my “custom dew drops” for the flower centres (they’re the clear baubles from Michael’s with punched SU cardstock underneath).  I often wonder why people buy different colours of things that are so easily customized.  It’s like embossing powder.  I only own clear, white, gold and silver.  I can pretty much get whatever effect I want without buying a zillion other colours. (though I do have many colours of glitter and did only have the basics in fun flock until I got a deal on eP for a grab bag of colours)

Well, that’s it for tonight (until Saturday, actually!).  Enjoy the rest of your week!
