Inspiration Week: Introducing Backyard Bugs Set + Free Cutting File

Hello there!  For today's share I have cards using the Backyard Bugs stamp set.  This set started as a back burner idea that in the end turned out to be one of my favorites.  I just love all the opportunities for scene building that this set offers!

Up first is a card using the toadstool house as the focal point for my little scene.

I loved it so much I had to create a second one with a slightly different focus.  This time I incorporated the ladybugs, the caterpillar, some daisies and the banner from the Sunny Borders set (which I will be share later in the week).

Backyard Bugs started with a little snail that my daughter drew that I thought showed real personality and I asked if I could use him as the jumping off point for this stamp set.  He & the "snail mail" sentiment work really great with the Sending My Love" stamp set to come later this week too.  ;)

For my pennants I used the fishtail banner dies along with some of the smaller companion images from the Backyard Bugs stamp set to create my own patterned paper.

For my last project I created a simple card using the butterfly image as a focal point.  For my card front I have created a cutting file that I am providing as a free download HERE.
