I designed this vintage card that uses the Parisian Beauty and Forever Blossoms stamp sets as a make’n’take for my vendor show this weekend. I have 100 stampers making this card tomorrow night at the Mesquite Convention Center in Mesquite, Texas. Wow, I just looked it up, and this will be my 8th year to do this Stamp Scrap Art Tour Show. My daughter just moved backed to Texas and will be my helper all weekend. The make’n’take is Friday night and shopping is Saturday and Sunday. Come see me if you live in the North Dallas area.
- Merry Merlot
- Basic Black
- Crumb Cake
- Petal Pink
- Very Vanilla
Looking forward to seeing and chatting with all the great crafty people at the show this weekend. If you’re coming, I’ll see you there!
Honey bees are a very popular motif right now and Stampin’ Up! has given us one of my favorite bee sets ever. To go with the sweet bee images and sayings in this Honey Bee stamp set, there are Detailed Bee dies too and a package of Golden Honey specialty designer series paper available as a Sale-a-bration free item (when you spend $50). I designed a card using this suite for my clubs this month.
Here’s the inside of the card…
I used a Gold Metallic Sharpie to color in the bee stripes. Do you see the little cut dashes for the bee’s flight path? This is actually from a new product available next month on the 4th (Ladybugs Dies) that coordinates with the Little Ladybug stamp set. You can earn the Ladybug stamp set through March with a $300 party or individual order.
My youngest daughter calls me the bee whisperer, since twice I have had a bee buzz near me or land on me that wound up just chilling out in my hand. I would suddenly notice after a bit that there was a bee cuddled up in the palm of my hand…twice! What are the odds?
