Little Ladybug Note Card & Gift Package

Do you believe ladybugs bring good luck? I was told that as a child and I remember looking through the grass trying to find them. This could be your lucky day because you don’t have to look in the grass to find some cute ladybugs! The Little Ladybug Stamp Set is available during Sale-A-Bration and it’s free when you place a party order or personal order of $300.  It’s a great time to gather your family and friends and have fun creating together!  Contact me if you would like to schedule a workshop and earn this adorable stamp set.

Earlier this week Stampin’ Up! released coordinating products to go with select Sale-A-Bration products. The ladybug Dies are one of my favorites!

I couldn’t wait to play with the Little Ladybug stamp set and coordinating Ladybug Dies.

I love to recognize and reward my team! One of my team members recently promoted and is also celebrating her one year anniversary with Stampin’ Up! I am so proud of her! I thought this sentiment from the Little Ladybug stamp set was perfect for the occasion. (This would also be a great sentiment for graduation cards or a coworkers promotion!)

Would you believe I used the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes to create this card?  I simply cut a piece of cardstock to cover the front of the card. Here’s all the details:

Materials & Measurements

  • Whisper White Note Card & Envelope
  • Real Red cardstock: 3 1/2 x 5 (for card front)
  • Golden Honey DSP- Striped Pattern: 1 1/4 x 3 1/2
  • Whisper White: 3 x 5 to cut Stitched So Sweetly Die, 1 x 1 1/2 to stamp sentiment, scraps to stamp ladybug and flower die cut

  • Memento Black Ink
  • Stampin’ Blends in Real Red, Gray Granite, Old Olive, and So Saffron

  • Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals


  • Fold and burnish note card along the score line. Adhere the Real Red cardstock to the front of the card.
  • Adhere DSP strip across the middle.
  • Die cut 3 x 5 Whisper White with the Stitched So Sweetly Die. Then emboss with the Ladybug Die to create the “flying” stitched line.
  • Stamp the flower image on the die cut along the bottom right. Color stem and leaves with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.
  • Stamp the flower and the ladybug on scrap white, color with Stampin’ Blends, and die cut with the Ladybug Dies.

  • Stamp sentiment with Momento ink and layer with black cardstock. Adhere to card.
  • Stamp and emboss envelope to coordinate. *Put a piece of scrap paper inside the envelope when you color the ladybug so it won’t bleed through.

I enjoy making cards to coordinate with gifts. Can you guess this gift?

If you guessed the Little Ladybug Stamp Set you are correct! To “wrap” the stamp set, I cut a piece of  Real Red cardstock to measure 7 1/2 x 11 and scored along the long side at 5 1/8 from each end.  Then I used a sponge dauber and black ink to create the spots. I folded along the score lines, placed the stamp set inside and wrapped it with Black Satin Ribbon. Quick & easy!

Hoppy Birthday

Stampin Up So Hoppy Together birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I’m still making birthday cards!  March is my busiest month for birthdays!  I’m not a fan of real frogs (brings back memories of summers camping on Cape Cod when the boys would throw frogs in our inflatable boat); however, this little guy is stinkin’ adorable! I colored “Hoppy” with Stampin’ Blends and cut him out with the coordinating dies. (*The dies sold out fast but you can fussy cut him if you don’t have the dies). I popped him up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the “reed” (from the Home to Roost Stamp Set) on Whisper White cardstock then decided I wanted to add some color.  I squeezed some Pool Party ink in the lid of the pad and added several drops of water from my Aqua Painter. Then I did a quick wash on the card. I like the subtle color. Normally I would have used Shimmery White cardstock if I was going to watercolor but this worked fine.  It did curl a little but I just used extra adhesive on the back so it would lay flat.

The stamped sentiment comes from the So Hoppy Together Stamp Set and the new More Than Words Stamp Set. Both of these stamp sets are only available until March 31st (while supplies last). You can see all the products I used in the list below.  Simply click on any of the images and you’ll be directed to my online store.  Here’s the details and measurements.

  • Card Base is Thick Whisper White that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
  • Layer 1 is 3 3/4 x 5 Powder Pink.
  • Layer 2 (with stamped and die cut images) measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.
  • Stamp grass with Lemon Lime Twist ink.
  • Watercolor wash the background with Pool Party ink using Aqua Painter.
  • Stamp sentiment and frog in Memento Black ink. Cut Hoppy from scrap piece and adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Color Frog with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Combo.
  • Cut frog, flowers, and lily pad using Hop Around Framelits Dies (or fussy cut).
  • Adhere die cut pieces. Pop Frog up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Decorate the envelope flap with a piece of Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.
