More Bees are Buzzing…..


I am back today with more Bumble Bees for the Twofer Challenge and the great sketch going on at Freshly Made! I told you I kinda got carried away and made just a few Bee cards the other day…LOL.  I have a bad habit of not wanting to waste any scraps and I had leftover Alchohol ink paper that I had to put to use, and then I had the bright negative pieces from a couple of days ago card, that I thought might be kinda fun to use.

In hindsight I am disappointed that I added the navy dots around the bee…but once I started I had to embrace it. Isn’t that DP gorgeous! I am sorry but I have NO idea whose it is.  If I had to take a wild guess I would say Blue Bunny. I got it from my Local Stamping store. Here is a closer look. The vellum bee really makes the card and doesn’t take away from that beautiful paper. The sentiment is from Pretty Pink Posh.  I made a mistake on the Sketch and centered my sentiment. 😦

Here is another card that really showcases the paper beautifully, and the leftover negative pieces I couldn’t waste!  The sentiment is from Verve and the enamel dots are SU.

That is all for me today!  Hope you have a fabulous day however you wish to spend it! I am going back to party planning and might make a card or two. Nanc’

  1. More colorful and beautiful bees are buzzing, Nanc’! That is stunning pp! I love that you cut the bee in vellum so the paper can show through. I have to say it’s the alcoholic design that really spoke to me of the pair. For one thing, it’s a clever way to use those bits of background we have in our stash and lay the cuts in a way that gives them tons of extra interest~ in addition to them just being fabulous AI designs! Overlaying the double-winged white bee makes this a work of frameable art! Thank you so much for playing again in Twofer Card Challenge #17! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Those bees are wonderful in vellum! And you’re right about that paper; it is gorgeous. I don’t think the dots detract from your overall design one bit. The alcohol paper bits offer such interest, too. Very sweet cards! Thanks for joining us at the Twofer Challenge! Bev

  8. Where do I start? I absolutely love that alcohol paper, Nancy. I need to play with mine again soon. Your DP is fabulous and the vellum bee lets it shine through. You may have been channeling Michele with your leftovers. The bees looks great centered in the colorful squares.
