Tutorial: Ladybird

Maria asked me to give instructions for making this card:

Stamp set: Stampin´Up! Pick a Petal, phrase from "cheers&wishes"
Ink: Real Red, Basic Black, Versamark
CS: Real Red, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Old Olive
further needed: puncher 1/2 " and 1 ", Stampin´ Write Journaler (black), black and red cord

1. Stamp the "petal frame" stamp in basic Black on a piece of "Very Vanilla"-coloured paper. Let dry.
2. Stamp the "dotted petal", inked with Real Red, onto No. 1
3. Punch 1" and 1/2" circles out of Basic Black cardstock, cut the smaller circle in half.
4. Assemble the ladybird.
5. Stick a piece of Very Vanilla onto a larger piece of Old Olive, tie the cord around.
6. Stamp a phrase onto this, if you like.
7. Stick the green/vanilla piece onto the real red card, then stick the ladybird on top.
8. Last step: draw the tentacles and the "flight path" with the black journaler.

Thank you so much Carola. I have the SU Petal set and haven't used it yet. Now I can start to use it and create some of these pretty cards. Your tutorial is much appreciated. Have a great weekend, Maria
