Ladybug Cards

Hello!

Today I’m sharing two cards that I made using the Ladybug Fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life. This die set makes an A2 size card in the shape of a ladybug.  My first card below illustrates this concept.

Not only can you use to make a shaped card, you can also use it to put on the front of a card or even put it on a scrapbook page. My second card below illustrates the ladybug on the front of an A2 size card base.

The die set comes with all of the dies to make the ladybug as well as the circles for the spots (shown in Card 1) and a heart die (shown in Card 2).

To see a tutorial of how I made this card, watch my YouTube video here —

Best Buds Stand Up Card

Best Buds Stand Up Card

Best Buds Stand Up Card

Hello! Today I am sharing a card that I made using the BestBudsBears2Stamp stamp set from The Stamps of Life. This stamp set includes the two twin bear stamps you see pictured in my card as well as some adorable sentiments.  There is also a matching die set to go along with this set.

I started off by stamping both bear images onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth cardstock with Spectrum Noir Finesse Rustic Brown alcohol proof ink. I colored the images with Copic markers. When I was finished coloring, I die cut the bears with the matching dies.

The card base is from the Word Stand-Up Card die set from The Stamps of Life. I die cut the card base with gingersnap card stock and used the patterned paper from the Blessed Collection for the layering pieces and adhered them to the card.

For the top portion of the card, I adhered the bear images as shown. I die cut a balloon from the 5 x 7 Box Card die set using powered sugar cardstock for the shadow layer and blue jay cardstock for the balloon. I adhered the balloon to the hand of the bear on the right and used white twine for the string. I added a die cut bow in blue jay cardstock to the bear on the left.

For the bottom portion of the card, I stamped the “Best Buds” sentiment with Chocolate ink. I used the Ribbon die and die cut a a piece of powdered sugar cardstock and adhered it above the sentiment. Finally, I added the flower embellishments to each side of the sentiment.

Supplies:

  1. BestBudBears2Stamp
  2. BestBud Bears2Stamp Dies
  3. Inks – Chocolate
  4. Word Stand-Up Card Dies
  5. 5×7 Box Card (for balloon)
  6. Cardstock: Gingersnap, Powdered Sugar, Blue Jay
  7. Patterned Paper: Blessed Collection
  8. Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Cardstock (for alcohol marker coloring)
  9. Spectrum Noir Finesse Rustic Brown Alcohol Proof Ink Pad
  10. Art Glitter Glue
  11. White Twine
  12. Copic Markers: E31, E33, E37, E39

Ink-Blended and Stencil Background Techniques

Today I’m sharing two cards that I made using the dotted flower background die set from The Stamps of Life. I’m also sharing two techniques that you can use with your background dies. One technique is simply die cutting the background die and ink-blending the cardstock after it’s die cut to create the beautiful background on the left (above).  The second technique is using your background die as a stencil as shown in the card on the right (above).
