Bug A Boo Stamps Spring Stuff Collection

Happy Saturday, I have a fun project to share with you today!  

My friend Carole sent me home with a book I'd been looking at when I was crafting with her last week called Clearly Cards.  I kept seeing clear tags made with this tag die by Sizzix and I kept thinking I have that and the acrylic sheets too.

When I had a little free crafting time I went to work...

I cut the acrylic report covers with my Sizzix large tag die, stamped polka dots on it using Stazon Ink and a very old Stampin' Up! polka dot background stamp.  I considered running it through my printer and kept hearing Carole say, "why don't you use a stamp on it" so I did.  I next cut a panel of Neenah Red Linen and added small black ric rac that I cut with a Papertrey Ink die.  I did this for both sides.  I'd printed the ladybug from the Bug A Boo Stamps Spring Stuff collection a few times so I cut one out with the Spellbinders circles dies.  The cute ladybug is colored with Copic markers.  After attaching the ladybug I went to find some ribbon in my stash.  

I couldn't make just one...

And here's a picture of my Spring Stuff Ladybug collection using acetate report covers.

I saved my tags for today because there's a new challenge at Bug A Boo Stamps Catch the bug that starts today, it's an Anything Goes theme.  I thought my tags would be perfect for it.  Be sure to stop by and see what our fabulous design team has made and I hope you'll be inspired to join in our challenge too!
