"Try It Different" Tuesday: Bug Eyed Clear Set
When I think of June, several things come to mind: warmer weather, summer vacation for kids, grilling out, fishing, and bugs, to name a few.
Now if we're talking about the latter and specifically mentioning mosquitoes, I start swatting at the imaginary ones in the air and run for cover. (Their bites leave big hives on my skin that last for more than a week. Does this happen to you?)
But other bugs can bring a smile to my face, especially if they're the stamping kind. Take this praying mantis, for example:
She included several different sentiments, so these fun creatures can be used for a variety of card making occasions. Here's another example from Trudy:
I couldn't resist whipping up a 4" x 4" mini card with that silly fly guy (along with a matching envelope made with the Envelope Punch Board):
This side view shows the dimension created by using the scored piece of Clear Cardstock:
It doesn't work exactly like an Action Wobbles spring, but it does mimic the movement somewhat, as you can see:
Next time, I think I'll reduce the width by 1/8", just so the strip is a bit more flexible.
Do you have other ideas for how to use this stamp set? Leave a comment to tell me which image or saying you plan to use first from the set, and you'll be entered in our BLOG CANDY drawing to win the set.
On Sunday, June 8th, I'll randomly choose the winner and post the lucky person's name here on the blog, so please check back to see if you've won!
