I ordered the Stampin' Up! set " Just Buzzin By" back in January and every since then I have not been able to make a card using the flower stamp in the set that I liked enough to post on my blog. But, last night after sitting at my desk and staring into space for awhile I finally thought of a design for a card using the flower! For this card I used SU's Choco Chip, and So Saffron c/s. I colored the flowers with markers and an aquapainter. And I cut the flowers, and bee out with my trusty cutterbee's. The ribbon is SU's Choco Chip wide grosgrain. Now, for my favorite part of the card....the background! I may be the only person on earth that feels this way but I LOVE Fiskars texture plates! I ordered the Fiskars "Flair" collection off of Joann's this week for 40% off. I received 6 plates with 12 different designs and the adorable honeycomb was included in the set. I think it is the perfect background for the bee set! I used my Cuttlebug and used the following sandwich:
Bottom to Top:
Card Stock lightly misted with water
Wizard tan mat
I have had great success with the plates with this combo.
I am looking forward to the beautiful weather we are going to have this weekend and I hope it is nice wherever you are to! Thank you for visiting my blog today!
