CCBH Pear Pizzazz: Hello Ladybug

CCS Logo 2021-22

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 34 – Pear Pizzazz

I have to say, I am in love with this bundle! The Hello Ladybug stamp set and Ladybug builder Punch are a fantastic buy and I have had so much fun creating with it (one I will definitely be keeping).

I began my card with a Pear Pizzazz Watercolour wash using the inkpad and the largest of the Water Painters. I wanted a fairly light tone, so used plenty of water. Once it was dry, I stamped the two large leaves and the sentiment.

The ladybug wings were stamped in Real Red and Memento Black ink and punched out. The main body was punched from a piece of the Simply Marbleous DSP (free Saleabration item with $90 product order). I added glue to the wings just in the centre, so I could lift them up so they look like they are about to fly! These were then added to the card with dimensionals.

Finally I added the three small dots stamp for extra interest. I repeated this process on the inside too!

Then I did another one with Magenta Madness! How cute is this?!!! Instead of stamping the large leaves, I used the wings on the punch to create some Pear Pizzazz leaves. I stamped some Magenta Madness flowers and added the Iridescent Gems to the centres.

For these ladybugs, I punched the body in Basic Black cardstock for a lovely dark look which really pops against the Pear Pizzazz.

Open the card and find a surprise ladybug inside!

Here’s how I mounted the ladybug inside, folding up a strip of card. I just folded it equally 4 times to create a square and then glue it to the inside. Then the leaves and the ladybug were glued into place!

  1. I’m so inspired by your gorgeous ladybug cards Kate. They are both so cute and adorable. I absolutely love the body of the ladybugs on your first card – they look amazing! And the pop-up element inside card 2 is something I want to try for myself. I love both cards equally.

  2. Kate, 2 very cute cards and I especially like the use of Magenta Madness as a point of difference for so many cards I have seen using this bundle. Great idea to use the Simply Marbellous as well.

  3. Two delightful cards, Kate! The Pear Pizzazz watercolour wash backgrounds look lovely. I like the unexpected use of the marbled paper for the ladybirds’ bodies on your first card, and especially like the boldness of Magenta Madness and black on your second card. Very cute.

  4. Oh my goodness both of these cards are adorable, Kate! I love your watercolour wash, the use of the Simply Marbellous DSP for the lady bug bodies and the surprise pop-up lady bug in the second card, so cute and so clever!
