Hat Bee Birthday


No....you're not seeing double...LOL! I posted a very similar card several weeks ago. I fell in love with this stamp and wanted to create a card for my August Copic coloring class, so this is what I came up with. The bee is from WhipperSnapper stamped onto X Press It Blending card and then colored with Copic markers.



The papers are Garden Party Busy Bee from My LIttle Shoebox and. The reverse side of the bee paper is the yellow zig zag pattern. They are matted with Bazzill cardstock. The flowers were cut using the Cricut Expression and  Gypsy along with the Create a Critter cartridge all from Hallmark Scrapbook. I then added a flower from Wild Orchid Crafts. I curled the edges of the flowers slightly. All the panels are machine stitched. The bow was made using May Arts silk ribbon and Bow Easy from Stamp and Create,  to which I added a yellow button threaded with matching green embroidery thread. The three pearls were done using Sunny Yellow pearl pen.


So that's it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon!

I do remember the similar card & as adorable as it was this has got it beat !!! LOVE the green with a touch of yellow & those flowers are to "die for" ... I have sooooooo many cricut carts & never think to pull them out for things like this. I KNOW I've asked you before how you get such wonderful photos of your cards & I know you have a T-Riffic camera but do you use a photo program like Photo Shop to get this wonderful color & brightness or is it all just the great camera ??? Mine are always so dark you'd think I took them in a well (in the dark) LOL
Hygs, Janie

I just love play on words and this one is over the top cute. I always thought of you as a "card artist", and this one certainly proves that. The detail is amazing. Your stitching is flawless! Love the zig-zag stitching around the circle. That looks awesome. Great card! And it is always an honor to see you've stopped by my blog! Hope you are well! Best, Curt
