Little Ladybugs Times Two

by Joanne James10. February 2020 16:53

I have a super quick post today as I have had a Valentine's home decor class today and have a school music recital to attend this evening, so I need to quickly squeeze in a couple of cards I made over the weekend using the gorgeous 'Little Ladybug' stamp set that is a free gift for anyone hosting a Stampin' Up! party with qualifying party sales. The first is for the current challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches:

Some simple stamping and Blends colouring with a sponged background and split sentiment, highlighting the word FLY:


 The second is for the current challenge over at Less Is More where the challenge is 'tiny and few':

This seemed perfect for that itty-bitty row of ladybirds with a fun sentiment:


Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


And for the super clean and simple card:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your evening and I'll be back (earlier!) tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

As adorable as the card is, Joanne, it's the envelope that I'm in love with. Great idea!

Both cards are as cute as can be Joanne!  I especially love the one with the row of tumbling ladybugs, it definitely made me chuckle!

Wow, two great cards! I love the row of images design for LIM and the CAS scene in the first card is so clever and eye catching. Thank you for joining us at Less Is More!
