Cute as a Bug!

I'm getting buggy with my Cute as a Bug set today. Normally I'm not real fond of bugs...but the critters in this set are adorable!! Today I am using the ladybug, and caterpillar.

I've used one of the patterned papers from the digital paper pack, 'Cute as a Bug' for my ladybug card. The lady is stamped with Memento ink, colored with Copic markers, then I used a die cut piece from my Fleur De Lis Pendants to enhance it a bit. Black satin ribbon finishes it off.


The caterpillar on my second card is highly influenced by the Baby Einstein caterpillar. When I first saw this image... I thought of that particular caterpillar right away, so the sequence of colors is the same. I used my Spellbinders Scalloped Edge Frame (Taylored Expressions) for a fun border. The die cut flower is also included in the die set. The patterned paper is from The Great Outdoors digital paper pack. The photo corners are punched with my new Martha Stewart punch.


Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!

Thanks for visiting!

Well, I love both these cards, and I don't really consider lady bugs to be bugs at all. They are so cute! And caterpillars - not so bad really. Especially the ones like on your adorable card!

These are adorable! And my first thought when I saw the caterpillar was "Baby Einstein!" :) (It's been a LONG time since I've seen those videos...I guess they aren't even "videos" any more, are they? lol)
