Hello Ladybug

Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. Hello Ladybug was the star of my video on Tuesday for Stories and Stamps. Unfortunately the finished card was not really featured very well. I had zoomed in to show the stamping of the ladybug and then forgot to zoom out. If you watched the video then you will be happy to see these photos of the finished card. These ladybugs are so much fun to make!! Let’s take a look at my card.


Hello Ladybug Card


I used Garden Green for the base of this card with some tone on tone stamping for the background. My first stamping with this bundle was super busy so I decided not to use it for my card.


Hello Ladybug from Stampin'Up!


It is fun to make different ladybugs by switching up the wings. You could also go totally rogue and choose non-traditional colours for some whimsical ladybugs. If you do, be sure to share the photos with me!


Different Ladybug options


Inside the Hello Ladybug Card


You have to take the party inside! That’s right; don’t forget to finish off the inside of the card to really make it special. I used the other ladybug stamp for the inside. It doesn’t have a punch but it is a beautiful stamp!

Did you notice that the ladybug in the top left of the card has a red body? I should have shown a black ladybug with black and white wings too. Making this card brought a smile to my face. It’s a good day indeed!




Thanks for joining me today. I hope you have a super day and happy stamping. Message me if I can help you with anything!!

Bumblebee: A New In Colour

Hello stampers and happy Thursday. Yesterday was a strange day with some crazy blog issues, but today I can finally share with you the gorgeous Bumblebee, one of the five new in colours from Stampin’Up! On this fun card you see Bumblebee cardstock in the background run through the Old World Paper embossing folder, Bumblebee ribbon on the tag and Bumblebee ink for the saying. It pairs really well with Misty Moonlight don’t you think?

Tasteful Touches


There are so many wonderful new products in our new annual catalog and I sometimes get a couple of them mixed up. Tasteful Touches (page 124) and Beautiful World (page 26) both have a similar font and they have a feather stamp. I have found that I am often using these two suites together. Needless to say, the saying and the feather are both from Tasteful Touches and the patterned paper and the embossing folder are both from the World of Good suite.




Beautiful World bundle


Out and About


Yesterday we went to Delft which is about 25 minutes from Gerard’s house. Our trip was not as tourists but to find some things for the kitchen. I was amazed at how big this store was! It is a wholesale store for the hospitality industry and you can find all kinds of food, cooking and baking supplies, display merchandise, accessories and furniture for restaurants. Gerard was keenly aware that I could have spent all day there just browsing through. Just a little bit dangerous. The wine selection alone was vast!!





The Joy of the Beach


Every day we take Bailey for a walk on the beach which is just across the road from one of the greenhouses. It is amazing how every day it is still somehow different. There are different beautiful things washed up on the beach. The tide is different; the wind; the sun or the rain and the other people with or without their dogs. Sometimes you can even encounter a horse!! Or his rather large droppings. Apparently there are no rules against horse poop on the beach! Dog poop is another story. Either way, what a blessing to be together on such a beautiful beach. God is good!



Happy Mail in Holland contest


Please don’t forget about sending me a card in Holland! Please use current Stampi’Up! products and then I will feature you on my blog as well as enter you into a contest for the stamp set of your choice worth up to $30. I will ship it anywhere in the world if you win. If you mail it by July 31 I should get it in time. Hopefully I will be in Holland until August 29. Jackie Bultje, Bloemenlaan 6, 2691 JC ‘s-Gravenzande, The Netherlands.


Ways to Support Me


Thanks so much for joining me today, and thanks for your patience. I just read online about some Dutch demos who had to go back to their regular jobs and stop doing Stampin’Up! fulltime. This was largely due to COVID19 and the loss of income from not being able to do in person classes. That is why I am asking for what I need!

If you live in Canada, you can shop with me online, just click the links below in the product list. Anyone can buy my tutorials which will give you instant stamping gratification and help you get the most out of your stamping supplies. Are you a fellow demonstrator and want to learn from someone who has been around for a while and has received awards in every category? Join my training group!! It’s only $5 a month and I would love to help you grow your own business. I appreciate each and every one of you and I hope you feel the love!
