Ladybug Love & New 1 Minute to WOW! Video

Stampin up punch art lady bug summer smooches demonstrator video tutorial
“Happiness” is a sweet, little lady bug!  Stampin’ Up! Circle Punches were key to this simple 5 1/4″ square card.  Today’s 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial shows you how to create the leaves using the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and Stampin’ Up! Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper (see Summer Smooches Offer below).


  • Stampin’ Up! Builder Punches are wonderful multi-taskers.  I used the Cupcake Builder Punch for the Basic Black Spots and Whisper White of the ladybug’s eye and the Owl Builder Punch for the tiny Basic Black pupil.

  • Stampin’ Dimensionals pop up my ladybug’s body.
  • The fresh, modern designs of Stampin’ Up! Summer Smooches Designer Series are perfect for this simple card.
  • I was inspired by this card at a home d?cor store and asked permission to take a photo.  I was confident that I could translate it into my own card using Stampin’ Up! products.

  1. Cute as a………ladybug! A tip for managing those little pieces of paper with the punches….catch the paper on the sticky edge of a post-it note. You can hang on to the piece of post-it to easily maneuver the DSP in the punch.

  2. Too cute and I like your card way better than the one you saw in the store! Now, I am intrigued by what Jo Williams said and don’t quite understand. How about a 1 minute tutorial on how she did it? The more we can get out of our punches, the better!

  3. This is a something I will be using soon! I love the tutorials and the ability to be able to use things in a variety of ways. Very fun.

  4. Do you know that you can fold your paper-any color- in half and put it about a third into the punch with the fold to the inside. Leave it folded and run it thru a crimper at an angle. Really cute with a lot of texture.

  5. Wow is right! I love that you saw what was prob a $5 card at the store and had fun making your own. Thx for sharing. XO from SC

  6. So adorable! Love the details you give for each of your cards, and your one minute to WOW videos. And I absolutely love the online tutorials I’ve purchased! Thank you!!
