Hello! Thanks so much for stopping by
It's ladybug season here in PA! This little cutie is called Ladybug Girl from Craftin Desert Divas. She is a digi stamp that is super fun to color! Don't let digi stamps intimidate you.. I'd start with what colors best with the ink type you use in the printer. I see many people wanting to use digi stamps, but do not know how. I have a Brother laser printer and most of time use Spectrum Noir to color. Just do a bit of research and dive in. Craftin Desert Divas almost regularly has a freebie.. so try it out!
First I printed out the Digi Stamp Ladybug Girl and colored with Spectrum Noir markers. After I had her all colored in, I cut with my Brother Scan N Cut. I'll forever say that machine is a life saver.. I'm not a great scissor user so this does it for you!
Here are the Spectrum Noir markers I used for her hair and skin. I found this combo on Pinterest and love how it turned out.
I then found paper I'd be using for my card. I may or may not have a paper hoarding issue.. And then when it comes time to use it.... I cringe because what if.. LOL tell me I'm not alone..
I cut a white strip and took out some twine and became to wrap to the left. I then used the Stitched Circles from Craftin Desert Divas and did several layers.
Using the Wishful thoughts dies.. I cut the word BIG out of glitter paper. That tiny dot for the I is a pain to keep track of.. I think I cut 3 separate dots lol. I took a small tag from the Pocket Pieces Hi die set and HUGS from Wishful Thoughts ... embossed that in Alabaster from Brutus Monroe.
I popped up the Ladybug girl with foam dots.. and then started to place the black stitched look with my black gelly roll pen.. the first time it started to leak.. I should have stopped, but I kept going and it turned bad.. I then had to cut hearts from the Heart of Heart die to place over the mistakes..
This is a super cute card! Who doesn't need a BIG HUG with a cutie pie LadyBug??
