A couple weeks ago, I can across these adorable images from Pink Cat Studios, Itty Bitty Betty and Itty Bitty Bobby. Melissa offers some images as rubber stamps (an super fast shipping, I might add!) and some as digital stamps. I ordered some Christmas stamps to play with and also some digital Halloween stamps. Gotta love the convenience and instant gratification of the digital stamps. I absolutely love Itty Bitty Betty and Itty Bitty Bobby and had to order some of them in their cute little costumes! This is Itty Bitty Betty - Ladybug Costume. I sized the images and printed them out on my white Papertrey Ink cardstock and the rest of the card was created the exact same way I create all of my cards.
I colored Betty with copic markers and added a little glitter to the bottom wings. Then, I stitched my patterned papers to my black card base. I stamped the sentiment on orange zest cardstock and punched it out. I adhered it behind my image, stitched a button in the center, and then adhered both to my card with foam adhesive. I stitched my buttons to my card and lined the inside of my card with white cardstock.
I made the decision this weekend to leave the Wags 'n Whiskers design team. I want to make sure everyone knows it has nothing to do with Lacey or Nikki. They are both amazing ladies and I wish them tons of success!!! I've just had some things come up recently and didn't feel I could fulfill my design team requirements so I stepped down. I am sure you will be seeing their adorable images on my blog again in the future.
Have a great week!
