Simple Lady Bug Stampin' Up!® Card

Have you seen the new Coordination Dies from Stampin Up!?  I am loving them.  I do like to Fussy Cut but for making lots of cards, it is difficult to cut the intricate parts of the Little LadyBug.  Although, you cannot purchase the Ladybug stamp you can earn it by hosting a Workshop or having an online Party of $375.  Contact me to get your Ladybug Stamp.

It's Thursday, and it it is Tips, Tricks and Tools and today I am going to show you a technique that you can do with your Stamparatus®.  My goal is to make crafters more confident using their Stamparatus®,  I am using the Hinge Technique.  Although this isn't the usual use for  The Hinge, you will definitely get the idea.  Here is a close up of what I am talking about.
