Ladybug inspiration from Card Class

Hi friends! I’ve got a really wonderful card to share with you. Wonderful because it was inspired by a couple of my friends & card class participants. I LOVE that we share ideas in class. I think I learn as much from the participants as they learn from me. Anyway, do you remember the ladybug card from April 6th.

The next classes are this Friday at 1p.m. & again at 7p.m. Then Sunday 24th at 2p.m. Registration deadline is today at 7 p.m. Email me if you’re interested.

I mentioned that you could flip the paper over the paper & make a black/white and red card instead of the Granny Apple Green & Crushed Curry side. Two friends did just that & it looked great. I had an extra kit cut so I decided to adapt the card using the”other side” of the paper.

Did I already mention that I love this bundle?! Ha- ha only a ‘gazillion times” right?! Anything with a punch is so quick & easy. Although I love our dies, the punches are especially good for mass production and card classes.

On this card, I flipped over the papers & added another ladybug & changed up the sentiment. I was inspired by Pinterest but this isn’t an exact copy; otherwise I would give credit to the creator. So many ideas out there- I grabbed an idea from here & there. Below are a couple of close-ups of my card.

Buffalo checks have been around for a while but still popular & I still love that black/white look! The dotted background is perfect for stamping on directly like I did with the sentiment. The Pattern Party papers will be missed as they were in a huge package of DSP as host gift. (If you love it too, you could host an on-line party before the end of April; just a $150 order qualifies. Connect with me if you’re interested).

I wrapped & frayed the ends of the black white twine from the soon retiring “Playful Pets” trim combo pack (20% off & in stock on Sunday). Black Matte dots were added. That’s it- easy peasy!

I hope you like this alternative to March’s card class card.

Have a great Monday, friends! Happy Stamping, Marilyn (aka MJ)
