CASEing a Crafter: Baby Bee

This is my second post for today.  Please click HERE for 
"CASEing a Crafter:  Welcome Home."

Hello!  I've got a ca-yoot baby card to share today.  Adorable bee stamps?  Check.  Love 'em.  Real bees?  Respect 'em, but keep my distance, thank you very much.


I was inspired by THIS card, designed by the amazing Iwona Palamountain.  Love the sketch, and applied it to my own card.  The strip of black punched edging is an Iwona-touch, as is the black die-cut sentiment.

The cork circle was sitting in my bits-and-pieces box, and seemed a good fit with the ADORABLE bee (Circle Friends / Simon Says Stamp).  It's the first time I'm using the bee in the stamp set.  You can see two other cards I made with other animals from the set HERE.  (By the way, I don't like those cards as much as I like this one.)


Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

I'm entering my friend Darnell's NBUS Challenge #2.  She challenges us to use "never-before-used-schtuff".  Heck, we've all got loads of that kind of stuff, don't we?



Stamps: bee - Circle Friends - Simon Says Stamp Paper: white, True Black - PTI; yellow flower - SU Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko Accessories & Tools: adhesive cork sheet; circle dies; yellow gems; 'baby' die - PTI; Copic markers; Postage Stamp border punch - EK Success

That IS a fabulous sketch design and I love how you rocked it with this bright and hapbee card, Colleen! All the elements work so smashingly together! I love the "baby" word, but I can also imagine this card without it. The occasion possibilities for which you could use this card are endless! And making a timeless all-purpose card is an amazing talent to have, which you do!! Thank you so much for playing in my second NBUS Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

Such a brilliant way CASE-ing a card. By using a bit of cork you add texture and another interesting focal point. Well done! Perfect for a baby; great mix and match. BEEautiful!!
