Spread Your Wings and Fly - Little Ladybug

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card using a very special stamp set.  I am going to share with you a card that I made with the Saleabration Host/Hostess Stamp Set called Little Ladybug.  These cute little ladybugs are eager to help you spread some love with fun handmade cards for birthdays, thank you, thinking of you, encouragement, and more!  This adorable stamp set can only be earned during Saleabration with a qualifying order, party, or workshop.  I will tell you more on that in a little while.  I based my card today on a card that's in the Saleabration brochure.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started my card by making my own designer series paper using my Old Olive Stampin' Blends and a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Once I had the pattern I wanted; I just simply cut it into the size strips I needed.   After that I started working on stamping the flowers and the ladybug.  


I stamped the ladybug and the two flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  This allowed me to color each of them with my Stampin' Blends.  I did really simple coloring on both.  For the flowers I just colored the centers (Mango Melody) and the stems and leaves were done in Old Olive.  And, for the lady bug I colored the wings (Poppy Parade), and a little coloring on the body (Petal Pink).  I even colored in the dots on the wings because they are not stamped all the way with the image.  The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink and sprinkled with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set onto a piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock that was made into a banner.
