For this project I have decided to use the 'the Beatles and Bugs' stamp set. This set was a must buy for me as I have three boys. My eyes lit up as soon as I saw this set, my mind was full of ideas of all the boyish cards I could make with this. However, I have to confess that this is my first time using it. But its not due to lack of interest, I have just been really busy playing with so many other great sets. It's better late than never I suppose.
I went with a really simple card design, as I spent a bit of time in stamping each Beatles and bugs individually. That's probably the most complicated bit about this card as these little critters can take a bit of effort to get them looking just right. As this was my first time using this set, there was bit of a trial and error process.
I also made a little gift to go with the card, a miniature memory game that fits inside a match box. I acctually didn't make the match box myself, I know what you're thinking, That's definitely not like me to buy something that I can easily make. But I had purchased about 50 of these match boxes to use for my swaps for the last Onstage Local event, but unfortunately it didn't get delivered in time. So now I have to make use of them somehow, so if anyone wants a few of these boxes, please let me know. I am happy to part with some of them.
Using the left over of the stamped paper, I made a belly band around the match box.
It wasn't long before my little one got his hands on the memory game. He was very excited to have his own miniature game, made by his Mama. Apparently, I am the best mummy in the whole wide world, so worth the effort. An added bonus was him actually wanting to learn more about these critters, so we ended up on Google, trying to find out their names. It turned out to be quite an educational exercise, although it wasn't the intended purpose.
