Stampin' Up! Sneak Peek...Coming in the January to June Catalog: Hello Ladybug for Valentine's Day

I just cannot get enough of this bundle!  It is so adorable and versatile.  The leaves reminded me of hearts, so of course I had to make a Valentine's Day card.  I combined the Hello Ladybug bundle with the soon to be released Sweet Conversations bundle. 

This card was so quick and easy. Aren't these ladybugs just adorable?!?

You do not want to miss out on these bundles.  Did you know you can make butterflies with the Ladybug Builder punch too?  Check out my post from yesterday HERE.  Place your order HERE starting January 4th.

Stampin' Up! Sneak Peek...Coming in the January to June Catalog: Hello Ladybug or Butterflies...WHAT?

My daughter gave me the idea to use the Hello Ladybug bundle to make butterflies and my mind was blown!  Of course, I had to experiment in the craft room today.  It was just in time for Global Design Project Challenge #323.  Global Design Project Challenges include: sketch, theme, color, and CASE the designer.  You can check out the schedule and join in on the weekly challenges yourself at:

I created the dabbled effect on the wings by applying Mango Melody and Melon Mambo directly to the stamp using blending brushes.

This is the cutest card to go along with a last minute birthday gift.  You can easily switch out the sentiment to use it for any occasion.  (The sentiment is from the Wildflower Path stamp set that is coming in the January-June mini catalog on January 4th) 

This bundle is so versatile! Make sure you don't miss out and order it HERE on January 4th.

Stampin' Up! Sneak Peek...Coming in the January to June Catalog: Hello Ladybug

What is it about ladybugs that bring back memories of childhood?  Laying in the grass and squinting into the bright sun, popsicles melting as fast as we could eat them and ladybugs crawling up our arms...

This is part of a bundle and comes with a Ladybug Builder punch.

*Bonus...the daisy stamp in the set can be used with the medium daisy punch!
