Little Ladybug says "I LOVE YOU"

Stampin'Up® has really outdone themselves with the Little Ladybug Host Cling stamp set.  For the first time ever, you can get an extra Free stamp set during Saleabration...this one for either hosting a party or spending a qualified amount $375.00.  There is a lot in this set and a lot that you can do with it.  Check back with me to see what other cards I have come up with.

This card I am giving for my mother-in-law for Valentine's Day. She loves flowers and always has a beautiful garden.  I thought this watercolor would be perfect for her.  Mom, if you see this early...surprise!

I used Stampin'Up® watercolor paper and stamped the flowers in Flirty Flamingo.  I used the Aqua Painter and watercolored with the same ink color. The stems are watercolored with Granny Apple Green and the flower centres are done in Soft Suede.

To stamp the flowers you are going to have to make a mask.  You will need a post it note with a sticky back and stamp the flower on it and cut it out.  Stamp on the Whisper White card stock and put the mask over top to protect it. You can then stamp a flower beside it and have only a part of it showing as part of it will go on the post it mask and not on the actual card.  Practice on scrap paper first :).

I used Stampin'Up® Layering ovals for the Ladybug and colored it in using the Stampin® Blends.  You will need the Poppy Parade combo pack or Real Red combo pack and the Smoky Slate combo pack.
I mounted the watercolor paper on Basic Black and then on a Flirty Flamingo Base.

Time to Celebrate with the "Gangs All Meer"

In the Month of February it is a bit of a Celebration in my household when it comes to birthdays.  It is both mine and my daughters month to celebrate getting another year older...or younger in my

I decided to use the "Gang's All Meer" which you can get FREE if you spend $60.00 or more here in Canada.  I love free stuff.  Wahoo.  Check under "Salebration" for the free items that you can get in "Shop With Me".  There are a lot of cool items.  There are bigger ticket items that you can get if you spend $120.00 or more or you can get 2- $60.00 items instead.  Ask if you have questions.

Back to my card.  Here it is...a bit of whimsical fun...
I did stamp out the Meer cats and fussy cut them with scissors.  I used watercolor pencils and a blender pen to color them in.  I did the same method with the cactus as well.  The balloon is a stamp from the "Birthday Bonanza Suite"

The "windows" are die cut out from the top layer of the whisper white card stock and I used the two smallest curve shape dies in the "So Sentimential Bundle" from Stampin'Up®. Cut this layer 3 3/4 by 5".  The Garden Green is cut 4" by 5 1/4".    "This calls for Confetti" tag was cut using the second smallest die in the "So Sentimential Bundle" as well.
