Ladybug Waterfall

January 30, 2020

Today’s card uses another one of my favourite fancy folds – the waterfall.  I know my grandchildren love getting this kind of card.  If you don’t know how to create one of these, you can follow the instructions on Splitcoast Stampers.  I embossed a piece of Whisper White card using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  The embossed card is attached to Old Olive card and then scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  I cut the mechanism for the card and the cross piece from Old Olive card.  I stamped the four ladybug images from the Little Ladybug stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the images using Dark Real Red, Dark Old Olive, Dark Daffodil Delight, and Ivory Stampin’ Blends. Once coloured I cut the images out using the co-ordinating Ladybugs Dies.  I cut squares of Whisper White card and attached three of the lady bug images before attaching them to Old Olive card.  I stamped another small square of Whisper White card using the lady bug border image and Memento Tuxedo ink.  You will notice that I only inked up three of the images so that they fit evenly across the card.  I coloured the images using Dark Real Red, Dark Daffodil Delight and Ivory Stampin’ Blends.  I also stamped “happy birthday” from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set onto the same Whisper White square using Real Red ink before attaching to a square of Old Olive card.   I punched one end of the long mechanism piece using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  The bottom of the mechanism is attached to the back of the cross piece using Tear and Tape.  Then the squares are attached to the mechanism using a piece of Tear and Tape across the back of the top edge of each square.  I tied a length of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine through the scalloped end of the mechanism.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the flower image from the Little Ladybug stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the image using Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the flower using the co-ordinating Ladybug Dies and attached it to the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card.  I attached the last ladybug image to the top of the flower and stamped the greeting from the Little Ladybug stamp set to the right of the flower using Real Red ink.  The panel is attached to the inside of the card.

This is such a cute card.  I am in love with this stamp set and the best thing is this is a Hostess set.  This means you can earn this stamp set FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order.  The dies will be available for purchase from the 4th February until the end of Sale-A-Bration (or while stocks last).  Bet you can’t wait to earn this cute little stamp set!

Bye for now,

Kris
