I know many of you have been waiting anxiously to get a sneak peek at Papertrey's May 15th stamp release. So, without further ado, here is your first glimpse at a few things this set has to offer!
This ladybug image is my interpretation of the popular insect's infamous markings. I divided the image into two quick steps that make it easy to achieve two colors. The solid wings are stamped first, followed by a special "all-inclusive" stamp that has all the spots, head & tail, perfectly & permanently placed! On this particular project, I cut the main body out and raised it on foam dimensionals and then applied a thick layer of Crystal Effects.
And here's a little ribbon tip. I hate trying to get knots to lay flat when wrapping ribbon around a card. So I have a little shortcut I use all the time. I adhere a strip of ribbon flat against my card front. I then use a short scrap of the same ribbon and tie a single knot. I trim the ends to the desired length and apply a glue dot directly to the back of the knot.
