Bee Happy!

Happy Monday, everyone. Hope you had a great weekend and were able to get in your craft room and get creative. I've been working on getting my stash of anniversary and birthday cards replenished. Today I have a birthday card to share with you that features DRS Designs' Happy Bees, which just happens to go with this week's challenge: Birds and Bees!

I started by sponging So Saffron and More Mustard inks onto the white CS using a honeycomb stencil. Once the stenciling was completed I stamped the It's your birthday part of the Sweet Birthday greeting in Memento black ink and then the Bee Happy part of the Spring Bee Happy greeting just below. The Bitsy Bumble Bee and the Happy Bees were stamped on white CS with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics, fussy cut and then some stickles were applied to the wings for some sparkle. After layering the panel on some mustard colored paper I added the ribbon, positioned the bees and stamped the bee trails. After that I attached the bees with glue dots.

In real life, I am not a big fan of bees. They scare me and I stay away!! But these cute little bees just make me smile! We'd love to have you check out the challenge and join in the fun. You could be the winner of some awesome stamps!

DRS Designs is also the sponsor at Send a Smile 4 Kids this week. It's an anything goes challenge. So you have two chances to win some DRS Designs goodness.

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Your stenciling is fab on this and works so well with the cute little bees (one of my favorite images right now). A super and cheerful card. Hugz
