Hello Ladybug

I made 2 different layouts for the 2 different Ladybug images.  I made one on a Basic Black card and one on a Basic White card.

The Ladybug Builder punch and the Brushed Brass Butterflies are 2 of my favourite accessories from the New Mini Catalogue.  The punch makes it so easy to make beautiful ladybugs and the butterflies are such a great addition to the leaf on the card front.

Tulip Sympathy Card

 The lovely Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper in the new Mini Catalogue has some wonderful designs that are in many bright colours.  I made the front of this card using the DSP as the front focal point.  Add some ribbon, a coordinating embellishment, a greeting and a 3D tulip and you have a wonderful card to share with someone.

To make this different looking bow....I tied the ribbon around the card and into a square knot.  Then tied my bow and added it overtop of the knot!  Trim the 4 ends on the diagonal.

The inside gives you room to send a personal handwritten message to the recipient.

One of my Favourite Stamp Sets

One of my Favourite Stamp sets in the new Mini Catalogue is the "In the Moment Stamp Set".  There are 3 larger images that you can colour with either watercolour pencils, Stampin' Blends or any other combination of ways to add colour.

This card was part of a Challenge that I took part in using stamp sets from the new Mini Catalogue.  I love the images as they are easy to add colour to, and they really reflect and encourage us to Rest, Relax and be Good to Ourselves.  This is especially appropriate with everything going on in the world right now.

The other item from the new Mini Catalogue that I used is the amazing Designer Series Paper called "Abstract Beauty".  I used both sides of one of the pieces for my card mat.

Driving By to Say Happy Birthday

I used the new Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Driving By to create a mini slimline birthday card for my husband whos celebrated his birthday on Saturday.  I made this card using DSP and lots of fussy cutting!

This mini slimline card measures 7" x 7" and is folded at 3-1/2".  Due to the irregular size I made a coordinating envelope using some older Envelope Paper (this is thinner than regular cardstock).  Thanks to my friend Mary Knabe, for sharing the idea of making this fun fold.  I changed the dimensions of my card so had to adjust to 1/2" on each side.

This is the inside:
