Miss Ladybugs

Hi all! Hope your Spring is off to a lovely start! We are having another raining week... sigh... At least it's good for keeping my allergy at bay. =) Here is a card that I made using one of the pretty stamps from the Love Bug collection from Whiff of Joy Stamps March release.


Another beautiful spring-ish image that reminds me of the not-so-springy-spring that we are having. =)


She is Miss Ladybugs. I think she is a beauty! After coloring her on PTI's Stamper's Select White, I cut and embossed the paper using a Petite Ovals Small die. I then masked her and inked the piece with spun sugar and antique linen. I then stamped Hero Arts Friend Definition over the image while the paper was still in the die.


The sentiment image is from the Spring Tree plus sentiemnt set. It's cut and embossed with a Standard Circles Large die then inked with spun sugar and antique linen when the paper was still in the die. The patterned paper is from the yummy Sweetness collection by Pink Paislee. The butterflies are made using this punch and the pretty Crochet Lace Trim is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

That's all for today. Happy Hump Day, my friends! =)



Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Alice, love your card. I like those punched out butterfiles. They are really flying away!! Do you need special needle for the sewing machine for sewing cards? I guess you have used a sewing machine, have you?!
