Have a Honey of a Day!

Have a honey of a day!

This was a fun exciting card to make. It took me two tries to get it right, LOL but that is part of learning right! My idea came from a fellow demonstrator in Ontario, Canada. Dale is a super talented stamper and I love stopping by her blog to see what she's up to. Go see Dale. See what cool things she is up to! And thank you Dale for the continued inspiration.

So...here is how I did this, and I learned this the second time LOL. Remember you can't punch through several layers of CS with the punches, so you have to punch one layer at a time. This is what I did. First I punched out a 1 1/4" circle, and punched the scallop around it. Then attached it to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2 layer of crushed curry with a two way glue pen. This helped to layer the scallops so they were even on the card and not over lapping each other. Then using the 1 1/4" circle punched, I punched the circles out of the crushed curry, attached it to the whisper white card base and punched the circles out of the whisper white.....surprise....yes the little little bees are on the white on the inside of the card! I then colored in the bees and the flower on the front using yoyo yellow and basic grey S&W markers, then using the gel pen added some accent to the flower and added the dots around the scallops.

Have a great day, and if you have any questions please let me know :0)

Recipe: Just Buzzin' By stamp set, crushed curry, whisper white, and basic black card stock, yoyo yellow, basic grey stamp & write markers, basic black classic stamp pad, signo gel pen, 1 1/4" circle punch and scallop circle punch.
