Ladybug Hugs

This is my card on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today.

All the product links are given not only throughout the blog post
but at a list at the end as well.

Now onto how I created the above card.
After stamping the Tulip Square 894 and coloring with Copics.
I adhered Tear-ific Tape 1/4”  SAT01 down the centers between the squares.

Once that was done, I removed the tape backing and applied  Flirt G1119 glitter.
It turned out so sparkle-y and pretty.
I adhered my finished panel to the 'easel' card using Tear-ific Tape ½”  SAT04.

Do you see all the cute little lady bugs peeking out here and there?
I wanted to add even more ladybugs, so I stamped 4 separately,
colored them with Copics,
then fussy cut them with my Mini Scissors 5 ½” 816E.
Each ladybug was then coated with Nuvo Crystal Glaze 947N.

I then added 3 of these to the bottom of the easel
along with the  Black Detail EP171 embossing powder.

The fourth ladybug was added to the top of the card.

 Flirt G1119 was added to the tulip in the top square
using  Sakura Glue Pen (Quicky).
Once my card was complete I brushed all the excess glitter off
with my Glitter Brush SG1400.
I have to admit I never had a glitter brush before I
started creating for this team, and I LOVE how it works
on brushing off the glitter!!

Ack, I love ladybugs and tulips, and that sentiment is way too cute and perfect with any ladybug card! That's some very fine fussy cutting you did. The glaze really helps to sturdy them up and looks awesome. I also like the idea of adding colored glitter to the tulip. You've got me putting on my thinking cap again.
