Today's card is similar to the one I shared on Friday, using the Little Ladybugs and lots of hearts! This was my swap for our January Stamp Share. Another one that could be a Valentine, but doesn't have to be.
I used my Stamparatus to stamp all the ladybugs after I die cut the shapes. This way I knew they would all be perfectly centered and I didn't waste any card stock by getting the images too close so they overlapped or too far apart when I cut them out. Here's how I do this:
I attach my stamps to the Stamparatus plate. I always put a stamp case under the plate so it's level and easier to ink the stamps, so you can see the images from the case behind my stamps.
I ink the stamps and stamp them on a scrap sheet of paper (grid paper here). Then I take pieces that I cut out the images from and tape them to the scrap paper so the images are centered.
Place a die cut piece in each outline...
and stamp. Perfect every time!
