It’s The Love Bug!

Beautiful Ride by Stampin Up | DIY All Occasion Greeting Card | Barb Brimhall @ bzbstamper.com

Before the premiere of each new Stampin’ Up! Catalog, I gather some of the best designers in my demonstrator team, The BZBStampers, and we design cards for a team Stamp Together.  Meredith Nelson designed this card and I thought it was pure genius!

I love, of course, that she did the VW in yellow – it reminds me of actor Dean Jones and all those Herbie, The Love Bug movies from the 70’s.  (Not to mention the remakes.)  But the way she accessorized it – boom!  There’s a lot going on here, let me walk you through it:

  • the main color combo is Basic Grey, Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay, with a splash of Smoky Slate thrown in too.
  • the background was done with the Dots For Days Blackground Stamp.  I had to purchase it for our Stamp Together and I’m so glad I did — I can see using this a lot!
  • the Smoky Slate tag was done using the Lots of Labels framelits (one of my favorite new framelits from the Annual Catalog.)  The dog was cut out of the Smoky Slate as well.
  • silver foil sheets were used to add the accents on the tag & car.  So cute!

All of this just worked together to create a very fun card that would be great for that favorite guy in your life!

Doesn't this stamp set remind you of Herbie the Love Bug? It premiered in the 2016 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog and I see so many possibilities with this set!
