Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog to see the great projects they are sharing with you this week. My project today features the Hello Ladybug Stamp Set, Ladybug Builder Punch and the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper. It also uses the Pansy Patch Stamp Set and Tailor Made Tag Dies. We are working with a Sketch Challenge this week. Here is my card:
And here is the Sketch we are using:This simple sketch leaves a lot of room for creativity. The Hello Ladybug Stamp Set and coordinating Ladybug Builder Punch – (also available as the Hello Ladybug Bundle at 10% off) – has been calling to me. It made it so easy to add color and fun to the card front.
Start by adhering a panel of the black and white check pattern from the Pattern Party DSP to a panel of Real Red card stock. Then adhere the layer to the front of the Basic Black card base, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for both.
Stamp the Ladybug body on Basic White Thick card stock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Use Real Red ink to stamp the wings on Basic White card stock and more Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the spots on the wings. Use the Ladybug Builder Punch to crop the bodies and wings. Use Liquid Glue to adhere the wings to the bodies. Make four ladybugs – three for the front and one for the inside.
Use Granny Apple Green ink to stamp the leaf on a panel of Basic White card stock. Trim around the leaf with Paper Snips. Stamp the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set with Black ink on a panel of Real Red card stock. Crop with a die from the Tailor Made Tags Dies.
Adhere the leaf and sentiment to the card front with Liquid Glue. Adhere the ladybugs with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Complete with a triple loop bow tied with the black & white trim from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.
Use Black ink to stamp the inside sentiment from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in the center of the Basic White panel. Adhere the panel to a Real Red mat before adhering to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue. Adhere a ladybug to the bottom right corner with Liquid Glue.
