Free Friday-Ladybug Punch Art!

TGIF! I look forward to Friday's even more and more as I get older. I am always so ready for the weekend. How about another type of lady bug punch art for today? I saw this cutie in a magazine subscription called "Paper Creations" and fell in love with it. The lady bug has several layers to make her stand out:


If you take another peek below, you'll see what I mean about layers:


I punched the body using the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch 3 times using the Brights Paper Stack and cut them in half. I glued every single layer on top of another layer using Stampin' Dimensionals. The little black pearls were easy too. Just color the Pearl Jewels with a black permanent marker, wait a few minutes and them stick them on. Glue the 2 wing sections to a Basic Black Cardstock layer cut with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch. The head of the lady bug was made with the 1" Circle Punch, cut 4 of them , score in half and glue all the halves to each other. How fun was that?

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, Basic Black, Whisper White
  • Inks: Basic Black, Wild Wasabi, Black Permanent Marker
  • Tools: 1" Circle Punch, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Bitty Banners Framelits, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Scallop Trim Border Punch
  • Accessories: Pearl Jewels, Dotted Scallop Ribbon in Melon Mambo
  • DSP: Brights Paper Stack, Summer Smoochies
  • Stamps: Just Believe, Itty Bitty Banners
We have another "Preview Project" & free tutorials today at Create with Connie & Mary along with another chance to win "Blog Candy". Please visit Elizabeth Price at Seeing Ink Spots and you'll be wowed by her project for today....I promise you!
