Potluck Friday: Pierce it!

Today's Potluck Friday Challenge at Stamp TV is a piercing challenge! (not to be confused with piecing!)
We have some friends who have a little "Laila Bug", one birthday party they had for her everything was ladybugs, so cute! These stamps are all from "Wee Tees".
I used my new Scor-Bug* (how appropriate, LOL!) and zipped along up, down, up, down in the Scor-Pal tracks without needing to move my paper and left off at different intervals so I could go back in my ladybugs and stamp them at the trails ends. I added a little black safety pin and red grosgrain, then adhered it a scalloped square cut card base. Love how the little scalloped bumps aroudnt eh side look like ladybug shells. Bugs are colored with red Copics, and I popped up the onesie after cutting it out. I love using an accent color on the ribbing and sleeves, the contrast really makes it pop! I added a little gray Copic to the inside of the collar and leg holes to make it look even more dimensional.

Upload your card that incoporates piercing somehow in the design** to StampTV with the tag STVPF11 for a chance to win! You have all next week to play, hope you'll join in!
* You don't have to use a Scor-Bug, but gosh it makes it easy! Try a piercing tool and a template (did you see the cute circle frame Theresa made??) or even a straight pin, just be sure to place something underneath to protect yourself and your work surface.
** you don't have to pierce as much as I did here, it could be a frame, part of the design like a bug trail or flower stems, a few well placed pokes in a corner, you choose! Just make sure the piercing can be clearly seen, thanks!


  1. Melanie, Could you please quit making so many cute tee cards? I'm not supposed to spend any $ on stamping stuff for a while & you are making it very hard for me! :)
