I caught it!

>> Sunday, April 17, 2011


Happy Sunday! This was a pretty fast and fun card until I decided that I should take our new Caught a Bug Greeting seriously and lasso my ladybug!

I started by stamping my white cs with our new Polka Dot Background right across the center using black ink. I stamped above and below with our Ladybug Background. After coloring the bugs and leaves, I sponged on a little black ink around the edges and layered it on black and then attached it to a folded red card. I stamped the saying using red ink and sponged those edges as well.

Next I stamped and colored our Ladybug Stackup and cut out the 2nd largest. Here came the "tricky" part. When I decided to lasso the bug I didn't have any twine small enough, so I grabbed my dental floss and a brown Bic marker and made my rope (it's minty if you get close enough :) and then tied it to the bug. It kept slipping off my layer until I used a square punch and made small notches where I wanted it to stay!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

PS - If you live in the Akron Ohio area come on down to the John Knight Center and join us for the stamp show going on today!!

Okay, you were right. Quite similar, eh? I have to say, nicely done.
