Little Ladybugs for The InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Inking Royalty Blog Hop 22020

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate birthdays, so prepare yourself for a wonderful mix of celebratory cards. We are excited to share our creations with you! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list to take a look at more blogs.

Little Ladybugs for The Inking Royalty Blog Hop

My project for this blog hop is a birthday card from the Little Ladybug stamp set. The ladybugs are adorable, and I love the font of the sentiment. Honestly, it was the “Happy Birthday” that attracted me to this set. I love the cursive writing – it leaves a pretty stamped image that looks as if it were written by hand. But, let’s remember the stars of the card, the cute ladybugs! There are several ladybugs in this set, and I selected three to stamp, color and crop.

The Stampin’ Up! materials I used include the Little Ladybug stamp set, Thick Whisper White card stock for the card base, Real Red Card stock for layering, Whisper White card stock for the stamped images, From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper, Real Red 3/8″ Satin Ribbon, Memento Black ink, Real Red ink, From My Heart Faceted Gems, Real Red Dark, Smoky Slate Dark and Light, and Pineapple Punch Dark Stampin’ Blends, and a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue; you could also use Snail adhesive.

I made a 4 1/4′ x 5 1/2″ white card base, added a layer of 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ red card stock, then a layer of 4″ x 5 1/4″ striped designer paper. I stamped the sentiment in red, then cut the card stock into a small banner. I stamped each ladybug in black, colored with red markers and gray blends, then highlighted with the black marker, and colored the flower yellow. I cropped the images into 1 1/2″ squares, adhered them to 1 5/8″ squares of red card stock, then lined them up on the front of the card. Before adhering the bottom lady bug, I glued a piece of ribbon and the banner to the back of the square. I then added three faceted gems for a little bling, and the sweet, simple birthday card is ready to send.
