Cute Ladybug Punch Art

Hey there stampers! Thanks for stopping by to see me today!

Today's card is one I designed with one of my friends and customers, Marcella.  She wanted to do a ladybug theme in pink for her daughter's 3rd birthday party invitations.  I took the extra one we made and played around changing it just a bit but the original one is super cute-just simpler since we had to make like 35 of them!

oops the pic is a little crooked!

this one is a little blurry but you get the idea :)


  1. Roll the Really Retro Wheel in Gable Green ink and stamp onto the bottom portion of a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Mat onto Gable Green card stock and add to the left side of a Basic Black card stock base.
  2. Die cut Pink Passion card stock with the Scallop Circle #2 Die (the bigger scallop circle was used) and cut it in half.  Add Basic Black punched with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch behind the Pink Passion halves for the body and adhere to the card.
  3. Punch Blush Blossom card stock with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and add to card covering where the large scallop circles meet.  Add Pink Passion punched with the 3/4" Circle Punch for cheeks and draw in the eyes, nose and mouth with a pen.
  4. To make the black part on its head, take the 1" Circle Punch and punch about 1/3 of the circle out twice right next to each other.  Then take the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and punch out over the partial circles to make the "cap" (Clear as mud right?)  Add to ladybug face.
  5. Add Basic Black spots using the 1/2" and 1" Circle Punches and add to body.  Add Pink Passion circles punches with the 1/2" Circle Punch.
  6. To make the antennae, punch part of a 1 3/4" Circle in Basic Black and then bring the punch back in and punch out just a sliver of the crescent created.  Cut it in half and you have two antennae.  I added 3/4" Basic Black Circles with Dimensionals for fun.
  7. Add more Pink Passion Circles down the side alternating popping them up with Dimensinals.
  8. I added a panel of Whisper White to the inside and added some of my extra pieces to decorate.
