Welcome to five ways Friday, where I show you five ways to use certain products. This week I’m showcasing the wonderful Little Lady (152384) which is FREE with a qualifying order.
Don’t forget we are now in the final month of Sale-A-Bration so time is running out to pick up some fabulous free items when you place a qualifying order.
Now who doesn’t love this cute set? In the UK we would call these adorable bugs ladybirds and they usually a really bright red. However for these projects I decided to pair them with the coordinating dies and the Amazing Everything is Rosy Kit, which is still available on our clearance rack reduced from £74 to just £40.70 Wow!
You can see more about the kit here. Its such a great deal so grab it now whilst its still available.
Even better you could get this medley or the Ladybug stamp for FREE. This month I am celebrating 8 years since I joined Stampin’ Up as a demonstrator. Everyone placing an order with me in March will be entered into a draw and one lucky person will win the medley and another will win a Little Ladybug stamp set. Whoo Hoo!
Back to the cards……
Little Ladybug Stamps and dies – Thank you
My first card is a simple card using the beautiful papers to create the background. The floral strip is accented with some of the rose gold foils. Yummy! I stamped the flower on another of the patterned papers and die cut it using the coordinating dies. The ladybug was coloured using a blender pen and some night of navy ink & then I added some fine tip glue over the top to make the wings all shiny. The sentiment was embossed in white and then coloured using a Lovely Lipstick blender pen
Little Ladybug Stamps and dies – Congratulations
My next card has a panel sponged with the stunning Rose Gold Shimmer Paint and then I ‘die cut’ the super cute little dashes which gives the little ladybug a sense of movement.
KISS TIP: you could use this die with butterflies and other flying cuties to give more bang for your buck!
I added a Wink of Stella to the little bug and then used my fine tip glue to the dots on the wings to make them pop.
Little Ladybug Stamps and dies – Happy Birthday
For this card I stamped some of the smaller stamps all over a piece of Melon Mambo using some Versamark Ink. I then added a strip of the patterned paper with a piece of the gorgeous ribbon attached around. I then stamped and die cut a few of the flowers and leaves, scrunched them up to give them some additional texture. You will also spot a couple of flowers just die cut in Melon Mambo, which are from the Lady bug dies. This time I coloured the ladybug using Melon Mambo and finished her with a little Wink Of Stella. the inside was finished using some of the left over pieces so everything coordinates.
Little Ladybug Stamps and dies – You’re so Sweet!
I couldn’t resist making a pretty little Box using the mini curvy keepsake die. Super quick to make and would make great little gifts at a party or dinner.
Little Ladybug Stamps and dies – Pizza Box
For my final project I took one of our pizza boxes and smooshed it in some watered down Rose Gold shimmer paint and Melon Mambo Ink. Once it had dried I added some die cut labels from the Stitched so sweetly dies. The bottom one is using our sparkling Rose Glimmer paper. I then added some die cut leaves and some fussy cut flowers from one of the patterned papers Finally stamped the tiny little ladybugs, coloured them with a little Rose Gold Shimmer paint and then added them with a cute little bow!
