Stampin' Up Love You Lots & Many Manly Occasions May Paper Pumpkin Kit - Gift Card Box IV

We had some storms move through yesterday with some high winds.  Our power flickered on and off a couple times and we have some tree limbs down; but, all turned out well.  The sky is such a beautiful bright blue this morning and the sun is full on.  Still quite windy out, but gorgeous!!!

This week I will continue showcasing Stampin' Up's new 2016-2018 In-Colors, Love You Lots Stamp Set (Host), other new SU products and the Many Manly Occasions Paper Pumpkin Kit Gift Card Box that I designed.

Let's take a re-look at the Gift Card Box and then I'll share one of the cards each day that I designed for the Gift Card Box:

I'm so lovin' how this Gift Card Box and cards turned out!  Love You Lots Stamp Set is so adorable and sweet!

In the picture above, I used one of the cards in Stampin' Up's Many Manly Occasions May Paper Pumpkin Kit to make the Gift Card Box.  Click on the following link to go to my blog post to see how it was made

Now, onto the next card that I designed with SU's Love You Lots Stamp Set (Host), In-Colors and other new SU product:

These two Lady Bugs are just so darling!!!  I LOVE the little arm around the others back!  So sweet and the sentiments go with the stamps so perfectly!!!

My card base is one of Stampin' Up's new 2016-2018 In-Colors called Emerald Envy.  I cut it at 3" x 6" and scored and folded it at 3".

My card front panel is SU's Shimmery White Cardstock cut at 2-3/4" x 2-3/4".

I used my Project Life corner rounder punch to round the corners of the Shimmery White Cardstock.

Using the Ink-to-Stamp technique, I colored the Lady Bugs with SU's Stampin' Write Markers in Real Red and Basic Black Inks.  I huffed on the stamp and stamped it on the Shimmery White Cardstock.  So Stinkin' Cute!!!  Sometimes when I look at them, I think they are doing a little jig!!!  Too funny!

I added a little water coloring under the Lady Bugs for some grounding by using my Aqua Painter Brush and some of SU's Chocolate Chip Ink.

The sentiment was stamped in Memento Black Ink.

I added a strip of SU's new Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape to the left side of my card.

Using SU's Stampin' Dimensionals, I adhered the front panel to the card base.

I die cut one of SU's new Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies from SU's Whisper White Cardstock and adhered it to the inside of my card using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

Love, Love and LOVE!!!  Love You Lots Stamp Set is one of my FAVE new stamp sets.  I just LOVE the critters!!!

Above is a picture of one of my Azalea's in full bloom.  Well, almost full bloom; the deer and rabbits have taken a few bites out of it.  I have one planted on each side of my little tool shed.

Well, that's all I have for today.  Please come back tomorrow when I'll share another card.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! 

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges and using them for their own card classes.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
