Think outside the box..

Sometimes we get a stamp set and get stuck using it within the context of the set itself. It pays to think outside the box. This card is made with the Pick A Petal set. The set comes with a bunch of different petal designs along with some different center designs and is really cute. In this card, I used the Petals to make the wings for my lady bug. I cut them out and then used a circle punch to make the body and the head. The ends of the antenna are eyelets and I connected them to the body with the Black Stampin' Write marker.

So think outside the box - sometimes with just some cutting or with a punch you can take a piece of a stamped image and make something totally different, but great with it.
