Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Lady Bug ATC Swap

   I knew that I wanted to do this swap. I just didn't know how far from my original idea that I would stray. I knew that I wanted to make her with her wings open. I just didn't know where I would go from there. Then I started laughing. I had what I thought was a cute idea. I even had a name for my lady bug. Victoria.


Victoria's Secret


   I started this card with a scrap book paper background on a piece of cardboard. I then used two different rubber stamps and two different embossing powders to create the pearlized embossed flowers. Then I drew a lady bug. I painted her wings red and then using black paint I added the spots. I added a tab on each wing half and punched a tiny hole for a brad. I then cut the body and painted it black. Using a rubber stamp and white embossing powder I placed the white panties and straps on her body. Then I attached the wings in place with a tiny brad. I used a punched circle for her head and glued it over the brad making sure that I didn't glue the wings closed. I then gave her some google eyes. I used double sided tape to attach her to the card. I added a few felt flowers with rhinestone centers as a finishing touch.

   These are such fun ATC's. I loved seeing the different way each artist captured their lady bug.They used felt, punches, fabric, and glitter. Each is a miniature work of art. I think everyone enjoyed making their lady bugs almost as much as I did.
