Hi there crafty friends! It’s Cheiron here and I am happy to share a fun project with some brand new Tim Holtz Sizzix dies mixed with a favorite alpha. I used the lady bug from the new Tim Holtz Funky Insects dies.
To begin, I cut a panel of Distress Watercolor cardstock to 3 x 8 1/4, and a kraft notecard that measured 3 1/4 x 8 1/2. I cut the words hello lady from the Alphanumeric Stretch Lower dies out of black cardstock that I had backed with a Sizzix Adhesive Sheet before cutting. This makes them easy to adhere to the card.
I measured out a space to add my lady bug and placed the letters onto the card panel.
To create the lady bug, I cut the body from a piece of Distress Watercolor cardstock that I had colored with Candied Apple and Fired Brick Distress Inks. I adhered the the die cut to the body of the lady bug that I had cut from black cardstock and then inked around the bug with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. I adhered the lady bug in the middle of the sentiment using foam dots and then adhered the panel to the kraft notecard.
I hope you enjoyed this fun and simple card using these new dies!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Cheiron for being our guest!
