good morning! what a weekend! but we are nearly done building pezzy’s playset and it is SO cool! hubby finally got the slide on and she was testing it out while we were laying in the bottom of the fort part and i hear *next i am going to do a dazzling flip* from the top of the slide! we both sat up real fast! wild child!
ok onto my project – todays card is for the Clean & Simple challenge on SCS – use bling – ok so not much of a challenge for me!! i had a few extra cricut cuts from a project last week just laying on my table – one was a bee hive i just love so i went from there:
i combined images from several different stam sets for this one. i used little skittle bees with the matching painted skittle bodies, a border from the picnicin ladybug set and the small flower from chocolate treats 2 – any of the stamp sets can be mixed and matched like this as they are all sized to work together – opens up a world of possibilities so you get more use out of each purchase which i feel strongly about! i crocheted a bunch of flowers this weekend (love these SO much) and used one up in the corner with a glittery skittle center.
here’s an angled close up so you can see the bling – it is always so hard to get a good pic of! i smudged distress ink around the edges of the top layer of the hive cut out and then brushed it with perfect pearls and misted lightly with water to set it. i stamped the little flowers on the border with shimmering brilliance pearlescent ink and pout glittering pink pezabling acrylic squares on. the bee bodies are also glittery and of COURSE their wings are stickles!
you can snatch up all of these fun things on my website!
and now i am off to do more labels and try to get the last of all the orders out today! the butterfly scallop nesties has already sold out but i DO have more on the way! guess that means i should make some more of those kind???
have a fanTASTic day!
