I love ladybugs! They are the only bug I like. Well, maybe I like the bee ~ but just from a distance 🙂 Anyway, these two ladybugs are so cute and they are perfect for Valentine’s Day!
The ladybugs and the sweet sentiment are from a Host Stamp Set called Love You Lots. A Host Stamp Set is one you can only buy if you are a Host of a class or party and you can only purchase them with Stampin’ Rewards. You earn Stampin’ Rewards when you have a class or party with sales of $150 or more.
The ladybugs were stamped in Black Archival Ink and colored in with a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker.
Do you see how I used the pretty Sending Love Designer Series Paper? The circle that is framing the ladybugs was cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits (as was the Whisper White circle). A strip of the dsp was folded arbitrarily and layered under the circles.
To finish off the card I splattered some Real Red Ink. This is a happy Valentine card! You could also give it to your spouse for an anniversary!
Thanks for stopping by today!!

Sometimes we just need a fancy Valentine. Whether you want to give someone a fancy Valentine or you want to receive one… And, if you need a fancy Valentine today, then this is for you 🙂
The star element of this card is the 3-D heart! It’s super-easy to make. I cut 5 hearts using the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies. Each heart was stamped, both on the front and the back, with a flourish stamp from the Falling Flowers stamp set. The stamping puts patterns on the hearts which coordinate with the background designer series paper.
Each heart was then folded in half and the sides glued together. I love the result!
The pretty Lace Doily is new in the 2017 Occasions Catalog. These doilies are Whisper White on one side and Very Vanilla on the other side. How versatile is that? For my card I used the Very Vanilla side to go with the Very Vanilla card base.
Behind the doily is a circle punched from Calypso Coral card stock. This highlights both the doily and the heart! The Calypso Coral frame was created using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!
The Love Notes Framelits Dies are amazing! I seriously had no idea about these dies until I started using them. There are 14 dies in the set!
Today’s card shows lot of items cut with these dies ~ the two striped hearts, the red arrow, the tiny envelope, the tiny note inside the envelope (I mean, how cute!), and the line of hearts cutting across the paper. Wow!!
Now I do want to say that I cased the basic design of this card from Linda Bedinger. She has a fabulous video tutorial on how to cut the diagonal hearts HERE .
The coordinating stamp set is called Sealed With Love and you can buy the dies and the stamp set as a bundle to save some money!
Thank you for stopping by today! Have fun making Valentines!!
