Stampin’ Up Ladybug Builder Punch

Stampin’ Up Ladybug Builder Punch

Hello Everyone – wait until you see how I used the Stampin’ Up Ladybug Builder Punch on today’s card!

I decided to play with the punch for today’s card. There are so many ideas you can see on the internet that I chose to try my hand at these.

I love using my punches in ways other than how they were designed.  Check out how the Stampin' Up Ladybug Builder Punch were used for the punch art on this card.

Vicky from vicky-wright.com and I have teamed up to give you Across the Waves Mini Blog Hop.  Each Wednesday we will be sharing & featuring a project created with a nominated Stamp Set or Bundle.

This month our focus is on the Hello Ladybug bundle

I played with making a flower and a butterfly for my the Stampin’ Up Ladybug Builder punch. The butterfly was pretty easy but the flower was challenging to get it to come out looking like a flower. Check out the center of the flower! I decided to add some ribbon for added interest.

I did some experimenting with the stamps in the set to create the butterfly on the inside of the card and envelope. It is ok but I think I need to work on it some more. lol

See that cute butterfly.  I used the Hello Ladybug stamp set to make it and used the punch to make one for the card front.  Check out how the Stampin' Up Ladybug Builder Punch can be used for the punch art on this card.

If you missed the card with the cute ladybug, check it out here. Since ladybugs are not just red, here is an adorable one in Petal Pink.

Now to see what Vicky created with this bundle, click the image below and check out her card.


Here are the measurements and step by step to make today’s Stampin’ Up Ladybug Builder punch card.

Measurements

Card Base:  White 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
Basic Gray:  4″ x 5 1/4″
Heart & Home pattern paper:  3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
Basic Black:  scraps for punching
Crushed Curry: scraps for punching
White: scraps for stamping and punching

Let’s Make it

  • fold and burnish the card base
  • add the Heart & Home pattern paper to the Basic Gray panel
  • glue the Basic Gray panel to the card front
  • use the wing punch and the Crushed Curry to punch out 4 wings
  • take 1 of the wings and add a glue dot to the middle section between each wing, use this wing to straddle one of the other wings so you have 4 petals in an arc
  • repeat the above step with the other 2 wings
  • join the 2 sets of petals you have created to form a flower – you may need to play with the placement a bit to get the flower shape – when you have it in the shape you like add some glue to the bottom petals so they stay in place
  • cut/punch a 3/4″ circle from black and add it to the center of the flower
  • cut two 2″ strips of the Black & White gingham ribbon, cut the ribbons in half on the long side
  • cut three 2″ strips of White baker’s twine
  • take 3 of the Black and White gingham ribbon and the 3 strips of baker’s twine, holding them together tie them together using another piece of the baker’s twine
  • add the ribbon to the center of the flower dot using a glue dot
  • punch the ladybug body from Black
  • stamp the wings on a scrap of White using Balmy Blue, repeat to get 2 wings
  • stamp the dots on the wings using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, punch out the wings
  • add the wings to the ladybug so the curved edges are next to each other using glue dots, see photo above
  • add the flower to the upper left hand of the card using dimensionals
  • add the ladybug under the flower so it is flying toward the flower using dimensionals
