Senior DT Challenge: Little Lady Revisited

By September 30, 2010Group Challenges

This month the team is revisiting one of the very first stamp sets that Papertrey released, Little Lady!


Not only was Little Lady one of the first sets we released, it was also one of the first stamp sets I ever designed!  I've learned SO much since then, but I still can't help but be a bit proud of this set that I designed even as a novice.  This two-step stamping set allows you create a modern take on a lady bug with integrated layers, allowing lots of color options and design opportunities.

I thought I would revisit one of my favorite projects that I created with Little Lady back in 2007 when it was released.  You can see the original post for this project HERE.

Stamped paper
I had created this fabulous background with the set, dong a little rock n' roll technique with the solid body portion of the bug.  It just happened to turn out so fabulously, I still remember this project just like it was yesterday!

Finished boxes
I folded the custom cardstock into a little origami box, tied with a bit of satin ribbon.  A perfect little project to highlight the little lady!

Now I get the amazing opportunity to introduce you the projects that the design team created while revisiting this set!  Trust me, they are going to completely knock your socks off!  So, sit back and enjoy!

Didn't the team do an AMAZING job!  Little Lady is such a fun set that has many possibilities and styles that will complement it!  I hope you found some inspiration in today's post and are able to get a little time in your stamping space this weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

    I just read your original post and it was such fun to read the comments from Mish and Debbie Olsen back before they were on your design team. Also, I realized this was the month you introduced white paper! Wow, this was such a fun oldie to see.

    This is a set I’ve always wanted, but for some reason haven’t bought. I would love a coordinating die and then I’d HAVE to get the set 😉

    Ms. Heady – a personal plea for an older set that doesn’t get much visibility. Christmas isn’t the only holiday coming up; Hanukkah is just around the corner as well. Mazel Tov is the most amazing, delicate, intricate and beautiful set. Everyone who has it, appreciates its beauty. You obviously spent time researching and creating such wonderful art – how about showing it some love?

    Nichole, has it really been that long? It was that little lady that got me completely addicted to PTI! One of my all time faves is still Green Thumb. This is what I have always loved about your stamps- versatile, timeless, and completely adorable!!! Hugs from Denmark!

    To have a friend like you. In times of trouble
    friends will say, ‘Just ask, I’ll help you through it.’

    But you don’t wait for me to ask; you just get up and do it!
    And I can think of nothing more
    that I could wisely do, than know a friend,
    and be a friend, and have a friend like you
