{Bee Mine}

Hi! In my quest for great stamp deals I came across this site: Scrapbuck . I was thrilled with the amount of stamp sets they had for $3 or less. That is where I found my Cloud Nine baby quotes and poems set. Shipping was free with a $20 purchase and it was super fast. I am in no way affiliated with them, but I wanted to share my awesome experience with this stamp/scrap company!  For this card I used  a set by Hedi Grace called "Bee Sweet". I stamped and colored the images with Pro-Markers and Bic Markit and then cut them out with my paper snips. The DSP is one of DCWV new releases called "Lace and Linen". This stack is a must have, seriously. The designs are so pretty. I hand stitched the pink squares (yes, it took awhile) but I LOVE LOVE the way it turned out! I used the Nestabilities Eyelet Circles , and the standard circles dies, and attached the flowers, leaves, hearts and bee with foam squares. I finished off the card with pearls, and Crystal effects on the bee's wings, hearts, and large flower center. Finally I stamped the "Bee Mine" sentiment on the card. This card took me two days of working on it in 5 minute (or less) intervals but I am very happy with the end result! Today I am playing with a handful of challenges.






Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope the rest of your week goes great!
