3D Kissing Lady Bugs Rocker Card

Hi Everyone! I created a Rocker Card today with an incredible Digi Stamp by Bugaboo Stamps for the FIRST PaperCraft Happy Challenge – Challenge# 1 Anything Goes – Option of Summer Luvin’!! Click on the Image below to enter the challenge!

This is the Card I made:

The digi stamp worked great with the Summer Luvin theme of the challenge. The ladybugs are kissing as they rest on top of Daisies. The flowers were great for the curling 3D effect!

I tried to take side profile pictures so you can see the curled flower petals.

Here’s a 17 Second Video on this card in action!:

Here’s my Card Walk Through:

I colored this wonderful “Flowers Ladybug Love” Digital Stamp by Bugaboo Digital Stamps (link at the end of this post). The price for this Digital Stamp is currently $3.00

I used Spectrum Noir Markers.

The Spectrum Noir colors I used were:
Flower Petals: Blender, LY1, LY3, TN6, LV2
Flower Center: GB1, GB4, GB9, LV2
Flower Leaves/Stem/Ground: CG1, CG2, DG4
Lady Bugs: DR2, IG7, BG7

Here is the Digital Stamp with the light shining behind it:

I used Mod Podge Super Gloss on the Lady Bugs to give them a shine.

I had printed another set of the Digi Stamp so that I can cut out the flower petals for the 3D effect:

Here are the leaves after they were fussy cut:

I colored the flower petals the same way except I used Gel Pens to add glitter. I used these Tanmit glittered gel pen colors: Copper, orange, and gold.

I curled each one with an embossing pen and my fingers.

I glued the leaves onto the original Digi Stamp with Mod Podge after I colored them.

I curled 2 of the leaves of the flower on the left side differently than all the others. I curled these 3 leaves the opposite direction to follow the flow of the flower design.

Here is a closer view of them glued on.

Here is the light behind it:

I fussy cut the Digi Stamp:

For the bottom part of the rocker, I cut a 6″ circle and a 5″ scallop circle with the Cricut:

I folded the circle in half:

I also folded the scallop circle in half:

I placed the scallop over the circle but I DID NOT glue it because I was planning to put a doily at the bottom of it and would glue it later. I forgot to take a picture of this part – sorry!

With the circle folded in half, I drew a line with a pencil about 1 1/2 inches long and about 1 inch down from the center fold.

I sliced a cut over that pencil line with a craft knife – with the circle remaining folded so that I could slice the front and back at the same time:

I cut a piece of scrap paper about 4″ wide and a little under 1 1/2 inch height. I folded the ends about 1 inch each side.

I put the piece of scrap paper through the folded circle:

I glued one end to attach the back side of the digital stamp to it.

Here is the Digi Stamp attached to the half circle:

I Die Cut a Flower Pattern to attach to the back side of the card:

I folded an end of it

I die cut a circle and embossed it with Clouds embossing. I colored it with “Tumbled Glass” Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

I used a red ribbon with white polka dots to weave into the flower petals of the die cut:

I attached the sky circle to the flower petal:

I glued this sky circle to the other end of the scrap paper. (no picture, sorry!)

I hand drew an arch and cut it. I accordion folded the ends:

I used red ribbon and green ribbon to create the basket handle pattern. I cut pieces of red ribbon and attached it in sections. I cut pieces of green ribbon to make “X” patterns over the red ribbon.

This part took a long time. I was cutting the ribbon as I went along – they weren’t pre-cut. But this image is to show how I handled the rounded corners of the arch:

All done with the basket handle!

I attached the back side of the accordion fold from the basket handle to the back side of the half circle.

Then I glued the front part of the accordion fold to the front side of the half circle:

I did the same thing to the other side:

The rest of the card are embellishments.

For the embellishments I used:
1. Martha Stewart Border Flower Punch to create the Faux green doily at the bottom of the hand circle, the upper white floral border and the green flowers.

2. Bow Die Cut to create the pink paper bow at the top of the basket handle

3. Impression Obsession mini flowers (the red ones on the card)

4. Pink Ladybug Sentiment Sticker from Spring Paper Stack

5. Dark Red Ribbon

6. Black Pearls

7. White Pearls
