Ladybug Hugs!!

Phew.... I'm Back!! Just in time for the last day of the Serendipty Blog Hop showcasing 3 new dies. Three new dies are being released... my amazing DT buddies have been showing them off for the past two days... me, I've been battling the equivalent of a "bad flu bug"... just with the computer : (


I am in LOVE with the new dies....


How fabulous is this Ladybug.... look closely at the embossed detail.... wonderful!! I went with the traditional Ladybug colors... couldn't help myself!!  The ladybug was die cut twice, once in black and then in a red polka dotted dp.

Well, I love to "do" the inside of my cards and stenciling is a big trend right now... so I was playing and it didn't work out for the inside so I ended up with another card... totally different from the first...


Created a stencil and sponged  with Riding Hood Red ink to get the outline of the ladybug... stamped the Serendipity sentiment over the top, added rhinestones, and some Heidi Swap gold mist. A little well, a LOT messy and different!! One layer card my friends!!

Just so you know, there are prizes... check out Mary's Blog for all the details. And visit my the rest of the DT... the other two dies are a Bunny and Shamrock....scroll through their blogs...these girls rocked it!! Leave a comment as you hop along to win $10 gift certificates to Serendipity stamps.

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

Love both of your cards, totally different. I think the black ladybug is my favorite, tho. The embossing really shows good!

Your ladybug is so darling. I love the white and red polka dot paper you used under your black ladybug. What a great idea to also use it as a stencil. Glad you got your computer problem ironed out. I would have really missed this lovely effort.
