The Little Ladybug stamp set has to be my favourite from both the Mini Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration releases. This stamp set features four of the cutest little ladybirds I think I’ve ever seen along with some lovely greetings. This is a special stamp set as its only available with orders over £275 and until the end of March, so if you like it nows the time to go shopping and pick up those wishlist items.
I started out by stamping and colouring some ladybirds and flowers. the ladybird is coloured with Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends and the flower a mix of Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight and Granny Appple Green.
I created the frame with the Stitched Rectangle Dies and the Poppy Parade Cardstock and Pleased AS Punch DSP. The card base is Balmy Blue and I stamped the large flower across the background in Balmy Blue to add more interest.
For my greetings I used the Special Day Dies to create speach bubbles so it looks as if the Ladybug is talking.
If you’re living in the UK like me then you are probably sick of all the rain we’ve being having, especially after the last few days. If you’ve been affected by the floods then my heart goes out to you, nothing could be worse than losing your home.
These two cards featuring the Under My Umbrella stamp set I hope will bring a little cheer to some of you. I think this is a great set mostly because I love all the sentiments, they’re perfect for sharing a little love which you can never have too much of. I also love that this set comes with a matching punch and now for a limited time some matching designer paper, meaning card making is quick and simple.
This first card features the raindrop pattern from the new Pleased as Punch designer paer, this is my favourtie, how cute are those raindrops? Thats rain I can enjoy. I’ve paired this paper up with Gorgeous Grape, using some ink, a punched out umbrella top and some of the Mini Striped Ribbon. I’ve used three quarters of the second largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies to stamp my sentiment on and to act as a focal point.
For the second card I chose a colour scheme of Coastal Cabana and Petal Pink. This is a very similar design to the first card but instead of adding ribbon I’ve added some flowers stamped and coloured in Stampin’ Blends.
Two quick cards made with the Under My Umbrella bundle and Pleased as Punch DSP and there are many more combinations you could explore with these products.
