Today’s card features the Hello Ladybug Bundle which includes the Hello Ladybug stamp set and the Ladybug Builder Punch (you save 10% when you purchase a bundle but the products can also be purchased separately). I also used Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper (a free Sale-a-Bration product), Seasonal Labels Dies and the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders.




I started with a piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock. Then, I layered a piece of Basic White cardstock with a piece of Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper. Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper is one of the FREE Sale-a-Bration gifts you can choose when you place a $50 order!

Before adhering the cardstock and Designer Series Paper to the card front, I wrapped a piece of Black & White Gingham ribbon around the left side, tied a knot and then placed it on the card base.



I used the Seasonal Labels Dies to cut a shape out of Basic White cardstock and then placed it in one of the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders. Normally I’d add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before adhering it to the front of the card but I used Multipurpose Glue instead.  I have a little bit of Creator’s Remorse (my made-up phrase) and wish I had used Dimensionals. I really, really like the look I achieve when I use Dimensionals and it looks a bit flat to me but oh well.  The cuteness of the ladybug makes up for it. 




I used Memento ink and the Stamparatus to stamp the ladybug’s body and it worked GREAT! I got a really good solid impression. Then I stamped the wings onto another piece of Basic White cardstock using Real Red ink. I stamped the dots in Memento ink.  Then I used the Ladybug Builder Punch to cut it out.

I used the Bough Punch to cut two leaves out of Granny Apple Green cardstock and then placed them inside the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder to give them a little bit of texture. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the ladybug and placed the ends of the leaves on the dimensionals and attached it all to the front of the card. 




I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Basic White cardstock in Memento Ink using the stamp set Hello Ladybug and then cut it out with my Paper Snips. When I stamp small sentiments like this, I stamp at the bottom of the paper so that I have one straight edge and then trim the rest. I added Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and placed it on the card.  To complete the card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside.
