Fun with Ladybugs

have you been loving the Little Ladybug stamp and punch bundle? There are so many fun projects out there on the Interweb it’s hard not to love it. I have two projects to share with you today, both were designed by fellow Stampin’ UP! demonstrators and both were just too cute not to recreate.


This project is from Julie DiMatteo at ThePaperPixie. Julie is a master at making 3D projects and does a weekly Facebook Live video to show you how to create your own. Julie shared the bumblebee shadowbox the other day and I took her advice and created a ladybug shadow box to match.


The best part comes when you open the box (kept closed with hidden magnets) to reveal a Lindt Bug & Bees chocolate inside. How adorable are these and perfect for Easter candy?


Julie found her chocolates at Target but I found mine a Kroger’s. Check online before heading out as not all stores carry them. You can see Julie’s full instructions and video by Clicking HERE.


Ladybug Fun Fold

My next ladybug project is a fun Z Fold and was CASEd from Melissa Seplowitz at I loved how all the ladybugs and leaves and flowers made for such a fun presentation on this fun fold card.


This card is very involved. Lots of measuring and snipping and assembling but what a great result. Melissa used 12×12 Magenta Madness cardstock for her card base along with the Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series paper (no longer available). I don’t stock 12×12 paper except in White and didn’t have any of the DSP so I changed it up a bit with an additional layer of Magenta Madness and two patterns of DSP from the All Together 6×6 pack.


To make it easier on myself I used Basic Black cardstock for all the ladybug bodies and Magenta Madness cardstock for all the wings. Just stamp the black dots on your card stock and punch. You can see and print full instructions for this card by clicking HERE.
