  Today I will be showing you ideas with Stately Flowers 6, 
Lovely Ladybug (my stamp set), Stamp it Big

There are a TON of samples here - and some cards use more than one set!


this first card uses Stamp It Big!


Stamp it Big - fun birthday card for a boy!

A card using Gina's new cardstock and Stately Flowers 6

This card uses Stately Flowers 6 and a sentiment from Assorted Greetings

Readers were commenting whether you can use the lovely ladybug set without a cut file! Punches work great!
Instead of using the cut file, try using the 1 3/8" punch, it fits perfect!

This card uses lovely ladybug and some of the new ribbons and a red button from Gina's new color collection

Timeless colors with Black, White and Red. THe strip of black is embossed with polka dots! Note the tiny red button in the center of the bug!
This was a card that I used the new Gina K. color inks on to compare it to memento inks. I love the coverage of the inks and added it to the innocent pink card base to create a simple card.

Don't limit yourself to circle punches - try a heart punch! For this card, I stamped the polka dot ladybug on white card stock, then punched out three hearts, added some new Gina K. buttons and the sentiment from Lovely Ladybugs. Quick simple valentine!

quick card with new Gina K. designer paper and the lovely ladybug set. Added some black gems to the back of the bug! The circle is punched out with the 1 3/8" punch and is raised up with foam squares.
Debbie Corbari challenged me to make a "snapshot" card with my ladybug in the photo. Who has two inky thumbs and doesn't back away from a challenge - this girl!

Quick and simple design just using images from Lovely Ladybug



 Well! That was a ton of cards! Hope you enjoyed them!
