Meet "Stanley" the Love Bug

Happy Sunday, Peeps!

I'm enjoying some time in my studio today between loads of laundry and straightening up a bit.  It's so nice to know we all have tomorrow off too.  Just a little room to breathe and relax...

I've had a few punch art critters who have been nagging at me lately.  Those pesky little buggers just kept begging to come to "life".  LOL  I'm SO glad they did because you probably know by now how much I love creating with punches.

The little guy I have for you today is a cutie patootie.
His name is "Stanley".  He's just a little Love Bug.

Isn't he fun??  He just makes me smile.

Here's a photo of the parts and pieces I punched out to create him...

Stanley's face/body and chubby cheeks were created using the Starburst Framelit Dies #132967.  They are from the Occasions Catalog.  I love them and have found tons of projects to use them on.  They haven't left my desk since they arrived in the mail.

Notice the textured, silver paper I used for the background?  (LOVE it!)  Well....I used the NEW "Decorative Dots" Embossing Folder that is one of our fabulous Sale a Bration products that you can get for FREE with any $50 order.  Sale a Bration is one of our biggest specials of the year and it starts next Tuesday, January 28th.  The silver paper is from the new Occasions Catalog.  It's a piece of the Silver Foil Sheet #132178.  (It also comes in Gold #132622).  I love the way it looks when it's not embossed too.  What a way to make your project "Pop".

The "Love You" stamp is from one of our 25th Anniversary Stamp Sets.  It's called "Best of Love" #132987.

I love all of the images in the set.  I just stamped the image with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.  Then I just used my Paper Snips to cut it out.  The white  highlight marks are made using one of my favorite tools, the White Stampin' Chalk Marker #132133. It can also be found in the Occasions Catalog.

Do you have your copy of the Occasions Catalog yet?  If not, leave me a comment or email me at and I'll send one right out to you.  There are tons of wonderful new goodies in there and you won't want to miss them.  Also, if you'd like a copy of the Sale a Bration brochure to pick out your FREE stuff, you can do the same.  I can't wait to show you the projects I've made using the SAB products.  SO cool!

Wishing you a magical day!
