I Always Smile When I'm With You

Hey Y'all!!! Teresa here.  Do you remember when you were little and a ladybug was crawling up your arm or on your clothes. Bet it made you smile! That's the first thing I thought of when I saw this cute stamp set. Took me back to my childhood. Isn't that what cards are all about anyway? Invoking some sort of memory or emotion. The Little Ladybugs stamp set from Ink N' Splatter comes with 4 of the cutest little ladybugs and 5 sentiments. Be sure to check it out. All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

I began by coloring this cute little ladybug and flower on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White paper using Copic markers.

• Ladybug (R29, R24, R22, 100, E04, E11, E21, E00, White Gel Pen)
• Flowers & Leaves (Y17, Y15, Y13, YG97, YG95, YG93)
• Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb Paper
• Card Stock - Real Red
• Paper Pack - Ladybug Days
• Stamps - Little Ladybugs
• Dies - Little Ladybugs
• Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
• Foam Tape, Bearly Art Craft Glue, Foam Adhesive Strips, Grosgrain Ribbon

Here are the links for both the Stamp & Die sets:


I started by making the card base from a piece of Real Red card stock. The card base is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/2" on the long side. Just a helpful tip - Make sure you used your bone folder to crease the score line well so the card stock doesn't tear.

I cut a piece of Ladybug Days to 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" and glued it to the card base with Bearly glue. The other two layers are the same sizes. The Real Red is 4 1/4" x 3" and the Ladybug Days is 4 1/8" x 2 7/8". The back layer of the two is glued flat to the card. The front layer has a piece of grosgrain ribbon tied around it and I used foam tape to stick it down. If you make one like this, send me a pic so I can see how you layered it.

The fabulous little ladybug and sentiment are both popped up with foam tape. The yellow flower is glued down to the top of one of the layers flat with Bearly glue.


She is so cute!!! Do ladybugs have different colors than red & white? I wonder.
