We’re having another beautiful day here in my neck of the woods, a great start for May, and it’s also “voting” day here in Canada! This is the 4th vote in seven years, maybe we will finally get it right!
I’ve used the adorable “Ladybug Bear” from Bugaboo Stamps. You should check out the store, there is an amazing sale going on, and prizes to win, not to mention some fabulous images to play with!
I’ve colored the image with Copics, and used Martha Stewart glitter on the ladybug wings. I’ve also used Sakura glazing pens on the black dots of the ladybug. The designer paper is from the Sweet Fairy paper pad. I love the sentiment from Create With TLC. It reminds me of the Smothers Brothers (sure dating myself here). They would always say “mum loves me best”. I made this Mother’s Day card for my sister. I know she is going to get a kick out of the sentiment!
I found a tutorial for the flowers, aren’t they adorable!! They are called Sweet Posy, and I love how they turned out. I found the tutorial in my favourite magazine Cardmaking and Papercraft from the UK. It’s in the April issue. It was originally a wedding bouquet tutorial by Tracie Steeley, but I thought if I made the flowers smaller I could put them on a card.
The only thing I had to change besides the size was cut off the points so that they would lay flat on the card. Once they completely dried, I cut off about 1/4 of an inch, then glued a small scrap of paper on the bottom, so that they would be easier to adhere to the card. Then I used a Sakura glitter pen on the top, to give them some shine.
