Serendipity Stamps New Relase - Ladybug

Ladybug DieThanks for stopping by!  It's the last day of the Serendipity Stamps new release previews.  If you are hopping along you should have reached me from  Anya's blog.  If you'd like to start at the beginning and get all the details you can click here to go to  Mary's Blog.  Today we are showing samples made with the new ladybug die!    This one is so cute and packed with lots of great details.  

The entire back of the lady bug is covered with an etched intricate swirly design.  The head has a nice clean cut line across the "neck" leaving it attached only at the ends so it is easy to switch out for a different color, and the curly antennae are attached to the head so you don't have to worry about them uncurling when you release them from the paper, or when you peel off the wax paper when you remove them.  A layer of wax paper between the die and your card stock makes releasing an intricate die Easy Peasy!  

I have lots of great memories of sitting in the garden as a child or with my own children finding ladybugs, counting their spots to see if we are lucky, and singing "ladybug, ladybug, fly away home".  Those garden memories inspired me to layer my ladybug on a layered, embossed sunflower.  The bright yellow and red together jump off the page.
Heart BouquetOh Maybe you noticed I had a little snafu yesterday!  I was supposed to show you the bunny die, but wound up posting the ladybug by mistake.  Well... so sorry - I still have something new to show you that wasn't on this post yesterday - it's been updated with this project featuring the new Heart Bouquet stamp - I just got it in the mail on Tuesday so this one is really fresh - and just in time for Valentine's Day!!  This one was lots of fun to color and is so fun and happy looking!
 The next stop on the hop is Jenny Gropp.    But before you go - make sure you leave a comment.   Each day of the hop one random winner will be selected from the commenters to receive a $10 gift certificate to use at Serendipity Stamps - so you can get whatever you like!    You have until February 5 to leave a comment.  Winners will be posted on February 7 on  Mary's Blog  For your convenience a  complete list of all the designers on today's hop is here.  Just click on their names to jump to their blog.
