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!
