Hello friends ~ I've never felt that I was clever enough to play along with Darnell's talented ladies at the Twofer Card Challenge but I thought I'd give it a go this time around. The theme is "Bees" and I've been wanting to play with this darling Happy Fall Y'all set from Honey Bee Stamps again.
I created a "hello" baby card and a birthday card for the challenge. Here's more info on my cards:
For the baby card, I started by cutting a rectangle using ECD Stitched Rectangles. I think I use these rectangles on almost 90% of the cards I make. I stamped patterned hexagon images from PTI's Happy Hexagons and then embossed the stamped panel with a cross stitch pattern embossing plate. I stamped the happy little bees from Happy Fall Y'all and colored them in pink tones using Copic markers.
I cut the Hello Honey Cuts Die out of white cardstock and blended it with Distress Oxide Ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
For the next card I used the Bee Hive Card Dies to create this darling shaped card. I've always wanted to make a pink bee hive and this was my chance! It makes me think of cotton candy. ;0) I used the Honey Bee Hive Stencils to add gradiant colored stripes on the bee hive.
I used one of the door dies to add a peek-a-boo door and decorated the card using more of those lovely sunflowers from the Happy Fall Y'all set. The banner is cut using Elizabeth Craft Designs Banners.
There's plenty of time to play along with this challenge. You can get there by clicking here.
I'll also be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
The Sisterhood of Crafters ~ Three "B's"
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
