Spunky and Bug


Sparkle N Sprinkle has come out with another rubber stamp set for the Spunky line.  This one is called Spunky and Bug (# 523) and I thought the sentiment was perfect for a swing card.

I started out by die cutting my swing card form the Sizzix die and then altering the edges with the Memory Box Piestra Tile die.  Once all the cutting of the card base was completed, I applied VersaMark to the front panels, covered it with Tinsel embossing powder, and heat set it.  This added lots of sparkle!

Next, I cut a square slightly smaller than the center square from patterned paper and I used the distress embossing technique and Clear embossing powder to dress up the edges.  I heat embossed the sentiment onto my circle with Black Detail embossing powder.

On a piece of scrap cardstock, I stamped the ladybugs six times, colored them with Copics and fussy cut each one of them out.  I also added a bit of Black Suede velvet glitter to each of the spots.  Then I randomly placed the ladybugs around the front square.

Using the same patterned paper, I cut a square the same size as the center swing portion and heat set my inside sentiment with Black Detail embossing powder as well.  Spunky was also stamped and heat set with Black Detail embossing powder, colored with Copic markers, and fussy cut out.  I used the Distress Embossing technique on this square as well by applying Distress Ink (Mustard Seed), covering with Clear embossing powder, and heat setting.

The inside portion of the swing card was also embellished using two of the ladybugs.
