I can't believe I got this card finished in time! Just a little over an hour ago I found out about this challenge on the InStyle Stamps blog and since I haven't made a card for a couple of days I thought I'd use this challenge as an excuse to get my stamping stuff out. From what I hear they are a new stamp company and what I have seen so far their images are adorable.
Now to my card.
One of the stamps you could use for this challenge was a bathtub scene. This image came to my mind right away. I love bugs (cute bugs that is).
Image was stamped on GP white cardstock and colored using my Stampin Up markers. I then cut the image out and adhered it to half bashful blue and half checkered designer paper with a strip of white for the bathroom floor. This was matted on barely banana cardstock. Added about 2.5 inch strip of designer paper to the white card base and then adhered the matted image to the card base. The thin glittery strip of card stock is ruby red, I added stickles glitter to the whole strip. Sentiment is from SU's warm words stamp set. I stamped it and punched it out with my large oval punch (SU) Then adhered it to a circle (1 3/4 " Paper shapers) and added the small flower with brad for a finished look. I added the same flower to the top left corner and applied stickles to the flowers. I also added dimensional glaze to the ladybug's wings. Paper piercing around the tip edges of the card.
