Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Challenge 25 - New Release and Blog Hop

Good Morning!!

Welcome to this week's challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink!!

This week it is the turn of head ladybug Kerry to set the challenge and she has chosen

Fashion

The DT have all used the new release of Stamps and sentiments available here, and we are having a blog hop to celebrate!!  Hopefully you have arrived from Michele's blog.  If not why not head back to the start and check out all the fabulous DT cards?  We are also joined for this challenge and blog hop by the incredibly fabulous Jeanie aka the Spotted Chick - something we are all really excited about!

Hello everyone - well it's another big day today here at the Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge blog! Kerry has a new release of stamps and we are having a Blog Hop to celebrate!!   There are lots of chances to win a prize, so why not join in the fun? :-)

So here's my card, just as a little tease, there are more pics later in the post


Cute image huh??

OK, back to the important stuff... there are four fabulous images in the new release, and as we have all kept our cards secret this week we have no idea what the others have been up to, so I am as excited to see what everyone has been up to!!

None of us like rules, but there are just a couple to participate in the hop
a) Visit each of the DT members in order and leave a comment on each of their blog hop posts.
b) leave a comment on the challenge blog once you have finished the hop.
c) Display the blog hop banner below on your blog, either in a post or on your side bar
 
 
The First Prize is all 4 images in the new release and we have 4 Runner up prizes of one new image each, all to be drawn at random, plus if you enter a card into the challenge you can win a stamp that way too!!  Aren't we good to you? :-D

And if you can't possibly wait (and who would blame you!) Kerry is offering the stamps at a special price of £5.50 until Monday 2nd May - click here for more details

I did promise more pics of my card :-)

I used some gorgous papers by Theresa Collins from the posh range - if you look closely there are fashion elements in the range - the pink looks like lace and the black and white resembles fish net stockings!!  I edged the papers with Black Soot Distress Ink and ran them through the sewing machine with black thread

The stamps come with three sentiments each - I used "If the shoe fits...


...buy the matching handbag!


The set also includes "Happiness is a matching handbag and shoes" and Who needs therapy when you have accessories?"  *Sigh* how true!!  I love how you can use these stamps for pretty much any occasion, and we all like a bit of versatility from our stash these days!!

I couldn't resist adding a handbag charm along with some more georgeous roses!  I've coloured the bag and shoes in with copics pens and added a touch of silver pen here and there where I thought the metal bits and bobs would be :-)  I also used some sheer box pleat ribbon also from Ladybug Crafts Ink


Your final stop on the hop is the lovely Gaelle
I'd like to enter this card for these challenges


Thanks for stopping by, I'm really looking forward to seeing all your fabulous fashion makes this week!
