Just For You


Now that you've seen that wonderful package I received from Beate, you can imagine how eager I was to make something with my new stamp! The Bee card that was in the package was a Joy Fold card. (click on the link for Beate's wonderful tutorial!) Since, the stamp is a circle, I modified the card a little and made the "inside" part a circle card! I used my Circle Coluzzle on a piece of folded black cardstock, and made sure that the circle template went over the one edge so that the one side would still be connected.
The "full ladybug" that the circle card "latches" under was made by stamping and coloring the ladybugs you see on the stamp, and then putting them together "belly to belly" to make a full round ladybug. I had to color in the dots with a black marker so that they would line up better. I added wire for the round ladybug's antennae. "Just For You" is traced over in Stardust Stickles. The flower has yellow stickles over top and some bling added to the center. I'm so happy with how this card turned out. . .and I LOVE my new stamp! Oh the things I can make with it! Thanks for visiting today! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Stampendous Ladybug Topper, Dot from Green Thumb; Ink- Basic Black; Paper- DCWV Glitter Stack Black with White Dots, Red, Green and Black, Whisper White; Accessories- Circle Coluzzle, Basic Black marker, Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, stump, Stardust and Yellow Stickles, wire, bling from Walmart, circle punch.

So rockin'! I love the "circle take" on the joy fold card. VERY creative to make the top view ladybug too.
