Quite a Lady

Hello! I'm so thrilled that you are joining me today!

In my last blog, I discussed how wonderful being a SOL card kit member is and if possible becoming a GOLD member and taking advantage of dual membership! The most important reason becoming GOLD is that we all love Stephanie's products and find creating with them so enjoyable! I have so many ideas for one product that I need to keep a sketch journal! **Helpful Tip** This journal allows me to sketch my ideas so I don't forget. This organizes my thoughts and helps me visualize my cards prior to creating them. Do I do this with all my cards? Of course not, just when ideas are pouring in and invading my thought process. There are ofc many benefits of being a GOLD member, so please check the website www.stampsoflife.com for all details.

When I was perusing my way through the Hey Friend Collection Patterned Paper Pad, I absolutely fell in love with the ladybug paper and instantly ideas started to flow!

This is another super quick card that uses some goodies from this month's kit but also other SOL products as well. I start with a Licorice CS base. Cranberry CS and patterned papers from the Believe Collection Patterned Paper Pad and the Hey Friend Collection Patterned Paper Pad are die cut using the following sizes of the stitched rectangle die (my go to die):

* 4 x 5 1/4"

* 3 9/16 x 4 13/16"

* 3 9/16 x 4 3/8"

I take my alcohol ink colored Ladybug Pudgie and foam mount it on a banana check pattern paper banner from the Hey Friend Collection Patterned Paper Pad and stamp the sentiment "Hey Lady!" The entire sentiment is then adhered onto my panel. I put some foam tape on the back of the entire panel and carefully adhere it onto my Licorice CB. I use the "Thanks" puffy sticker from the May 2019 card kit and use alcohol markers to color clear SOL gems to finish embellishing the card.

Using the embellishments from card kits helps you create quick cards in a pinch.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy Crafting,
