Little Ladybug

Today’s card features the Little Ladybug stamp set. This is a free Host set (with a qualifying order) featured on page 17 of the Sale-A-Bration catalog. I love everything about this set. It is super cute, easy to stamp and is quite versatile. The sentiments range from: “Spread your wings and FLY” to “Hey, Lady”.

Card recipe:

~Cut Black card stock @ 8-1/2” x 5-1/2”. Score at 4-1/4”

~Cut Whisper White card stock @ 5-1/4” x 4” . Cut 2 pieces of Whisper White. One layer will be for the inside of your card.

~Cut Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper @ 5-1/4” x 2-1/2”

~Cut Poppy Parade card stock @ 5-1/4” x 1/2”

~Stamp your images. For the Ladybug, I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black. I then colored in the wings using the Poppy Parade Dark Stampin’ Blend marker. I finished coloring with a basic grey marker for the body and Crushed Curry for the flower.

~Using your die cutting machine, cut a piece of Whisper White using the Layering Circles dies and a piece of Poppy Parade using the Painted Labels dies. Make sure you choose the circle that fits well with the Painted Labels die.

~Now it’s time to put this card together with your favorite adhesive. I work best with the Multi-Purpose Tombow glue. Use dimensionals to pop the Ladybug up. Add some bling and you are done! For this card, I used Peaceful Poppies sequins. I really like that some of these sequins “stand up” more….like little tulips! The colors are rich and really add a little extra to your card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card. The last day for the Sale-A-Bration promotion is March 31, 2020. If you are in the United States and wish to purchase any of these products, please click the “Shop Now” button or send me a message. I’m happy to assist you. As always, Happy Crafting! Colleen

Colleen Light Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and DIY Crafter I love all paper crafting and I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! Independent demonstrator since 2018. Not only do I love the Stampin’ Up products but I am also working towards my quilling accreditation through the Quilling Guild. You will see some of those cards pop up every now and then. I started this latest paper crafting hobby of mine following an accident. I use it as my own form of occupational therapy (we nurses can get creative with our therapies.. haha). What I found was a great admiration for my fellow creative demonstrators and a great sense of community. I especially enjoy sending out my hand-crafted cards. It makes me happy when people tell me they save the cards!! If you are in the United States, I would love to be your demonstrator or have you as a member of my team. Check out the details of becoming a demonstrator at my on-line store (the discounts are definitely helpful). Feel free to drop me a comment! I look forward to working with you.
