Serendipity Stamps New Release Blog Hop Day 3

Hello, back again with Day 3 of the Serendipity Stamps new release blog hop. Today the team is sharing their creations using the Ladybug Die. Like the Bunny Die we shared yesterday, this die has lots of fun details to it!

See all those cute embossed curlicues?

I had dots on the brain for this one.

I started with some die cut circles that I messy stitched. I used the Ladybug Hugs sentiment (there is a Ladybug Die and Cling Set available that has the die along with this sentiment and two other coordinating stamps).

I die cut my ladybug from red cardstock and then again from black. I inset the black dots into the red ladybug die cut, popping up the larger ones before adding some Stickles.

This die is so fun, I want to brainstorm some 3D ideas for it.. straw toppers? I hope you enjoyed hopping along with us, be sure to leave comments for a chance to win a $10 credit for the Serendipity Stamps store.

Comments are open until February 5th - be sure to visit all of the DT members, even we don't know where the lucky comments will be chosen from! The winners will be announced February 7th. Sweetie Jeanne Jachna is your next stop along the hop. Enjoy!
