Wiggle Worm, Humorous Card, Get Well Card, 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog

Today I wanted to play with the "Wiggle Worm" set.  I wasn't going to get this set but I remembered I had a lot of fun many years ago with a different bug set that Stampin' Up! had so I decided to buy it.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  On top of that I taped a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pear Pizzazz Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the 6" x 6" Subtles pack.  You get 40 sheets in that pack and they last a very long time. I like it now that they are 6" x 6" instead of 12" x 12"  I rarely put a dent in those and they were so expensive. These are more affordable. 

I cut a strip of Whisper White card stock that measured 1-3/4" x 5-1/4".  I textured it with the "Layered Leaves" embossing folder.  I taped it to a piece of Basic Black card stock that measured 1-7/8" x 5-1/4" and I taped those to the DSP.  

I stamped the cute bug using black memento ink on a 2-1/8" x 2-1/8" square of Whisper White card stock.  I colored him in using the light Granny Apple Green Blender Pen.  Then I drew around the square body parts using the light Old Olive Blender Pen.

I colored the wings using both the light and dark Smoky Slate Blends Pens.  I colored the wings in with the light first and then went round the inside edges using the dark pen.  Click on the photo for a better view.  

I colored the mouth in using the light Flirty Flamingo Blends Pen.  

I colored the bottom part of the bug in using the dark Daffodil Delight Blends Pen.  I stamped the "highlights" around the bug bottom using Daffodil Delight ink.

After the coloring, I cut a 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock and a 2-3/8" x 2-3/8" piece of Basic Black card stock and I taped those layers together.  

The words were done on the computer. The font I used was "Curlz MT".  I don't know if I had added it to my computer or if it came with it.  I just liked the way it looked and ran with it. It's size 12 and I did bold it.  I cut the words out and it measured 2-3/4" x 1-1/2".  I cut a 2-7/8" x 1-5/8" piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock and a 3" x 1-3/4" piece of Basic Black card stock.  I taped the layers together.  I taped the word layers in place on the card front and I set the bug image in place using Dimensionals.  

And for the final touches, I put a little glue on the bug bottom and sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to give it a bit more glow! And I added some Wink of Stella to the wings.

I think this card was very fun to make. It makes me smile to look at it.  I love the poem.  I found it on the internet many years ago.  I tried to find the author but from what I have seen, it's anonymous but thought to be a British author because of the word "bum".  I just love it and I thought it fit well with this image.

Thank you ever SO much for stopping by today,
