Little Ladybug Catalog CASE - Spread Your Wings and Fly! Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you this super cute card that I CASEd from the Saleabration brochure.  I used this card as part of a CASE the Catalog Swap my friend Kay Cogbill of Arkansas did a few months back.  This was a fun and different swap that I had never taken part in before.  I will be sharing the cards that I received as part of the swap during the next few months.  I was assigned one of my favorite sets Little Ladybug so I was very excited.  I picked this card to CASE (Copy and Share Everything).  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I went through the Little Ladybug section of the Saleabration brochure trying to decide which card I wanted to do as my CASE.  I finally decided on this fun little card.

I started out by stamping all the images I needed to color for my card.  I needed to stamp 36 of the flowers, and 16 of the ladybugs.  I stamped them all at one time in tuxedo black ink.  Once I had them all stamped I colored them all with my Stampin' Blends.  I used Poppy Parade (light & dark), Petal Pink (light & dark) and Basic Black (light) to color the ladybug.  I used Old Olive (light & dark) and Daffodil Delight (dark) for the flowers.  Once I had all the coloring done on the ladybugs and flowers it was time to cut them all out.  I had to fussy cut all of them out by hand, at the time there are no dies to do that.  But, I will tell you that there are matching dies coming out in February for this die set and a few more coordinating items.  I will share more about that later on in another blog post. 
Next, I had to do the striped paper in the background.  I didn't know at the time that the stripped paper in the background was in the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.  So you can use the designer series paper or make your own like I did.  I used Whisper White and my Old Olive (light & dark) blends to create my own version of this paper.  I cut my handmade paper down to 4 1/2 x 3 3/4.  My next layer for my card was a piece of whisper white cardstock cut to 5 1/4 x 4 that I embossed with the Layered Leaves 3d Embossing Folder.  My card base is a piece of Thick Whisper White cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.

To finish of my card it was now time to put everything together.  So I layered the embossed leaf cardstock on to each card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Next I wrapped some Linen Thread around the handmade DSP and tied a bow on the left hand side.  I popped this layer up on Stampin' Dimensionals onto the card front.  I then added the two flowers that I had made, using liquid glue and on the one on the right I added a couple dimensionals behind the bloom.  I then added my little ladybug with a dimensional.  To finish off my card I stamped the sentiment on a Poppy Parade banner in versamark and added white stampin' emboss powder and heat it it.  I made the banner with just some scrap cardstock.  I popped the sentiment up on dimensionals also.  This is a very layered card.  To add the finishing touches I added a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels.

Soft Spring (May God Bless and Keep You) & My Weekly Special

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you with a card that I made using the hostess/host set Soft Spring.  This stamp set can only be earned with a qualifying order of $150.00 with Stampin' Rewards.  This floral layering set features some great images that can create some wonderful Seasonal flowers.  Here's a look at the card that I created for you today.

I used a couple of the layering stamps to create my card.  As far as colors goes I used a mix of both old and new.  I used Pretty Peacock, Granny Apple Green, and Blueberry Bushel.  I thought they paired very well with the images from the stamp set.  Here's a look at the stamp set and you tell me what you think about the colors and how they match the set.

You can use either the Stamparatus or just clear blocks for this set.  I used the stamparatus on my card today because I wanted everything to line up just right and I didn't feel like fighting with trying to do it by hand with a clear block and maybe I got it close or so close you may not notice it being off just a hair.  With the Stamparatus I could line everything up perfectly with precision.  I also love how it gives the look and impression of watercolor and I never had to even pick up a brush.
Once I had everything stamped layered and ready to go it was time to put the finishing touches on the card.  I added a thing piece of Pretty Peacock that I made into a banner and I mirrored that same element with the sentiment.  I also added a few of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones, just to add a little sparkle.
Thanks for dropping by today.  If you would like to earn this stamp set I have a Weekly Specials for you this week you are sure to LOVE.  If you place a $100 (before shipping and taxes) order using my host code you can pick whichever Host/Hostess Stamp Set you would like from the Annual Catalog.
