{TSOL} ladybugs2love

I always LOVE the beginning of the month, because I can finally share the new stamps from The Stamps of Life! I have usually made samples almost a month in advance, so it feels like FOREVER before I can share the cuteness!  And as always, we have a whole bunch of CUTE to create with, in the new ladybugs2love stamp set!

On this first card, I stamped the background in gray in, and then paper-pieced the big ladybug. I popped her wings up on foam tape, and added some sparkly glitter jewels for her antennae. 

 I busted out my TSOL sprays on this second card, using the Strawberry spray (it matches the Strawberry ink pad) to add a little spotty-dottiness to this card.  And the black and white twine (from The Twinery) was the perfect finishing touch.

Okay, so this third card I created is really cute. . .and incredibly NOT EASY to photograph.  It's a tri-fold card.  I scored it on my Scor-Pal, then attached the red panels, and then used circle dies and punches to make my polkadots. 

On this second image, you can see from the top right image what it looks like when you open the first flap, and then the bottom right image is the entire inside.  I had fun with those little ladybugs! (They are tiny and adorable!!!!) 

You can find all sorts of fabulous stamps, ink, dies, and supplies at The Stamps of Life!!!! Head over, and while you're there, check out the gallery for all of the spotty-dotty samples that the design team created!

Thanks so much for coming by!!!

Sweet! I really like the grey bugs on the first and the punny sentiment on the second. The third is just darling. I really like the mix of spot sizes and the little bugs inside.
