Greetings!   Happy Weekend!  Today I am super excited to share this card I created with D2BA brand new stamps set called BEE-utiful!  As a science major (my day job)  I LOVE all things nature related!  So these stamps were a must for my collection!

I started by stamping the image and sentiment onto white card stock. I then colored my image with my colored pencils!  You can see a close up of the images below.

I matted my stamped image and paired the image with D2BA’s Joyful Bloom plaid paper  and coordinating cardstock to finish off the card!  I hope you are inspired to get stamping!

You will also need a manilla tag, Inks (I choose Oxide inks), coordinating card stock and ribbon (or see how I made my coordinating ribbon below!)

Start by laying the Wildflower Stencil over the tag.

I then applied my ink.

I then laid the Swirl Stencil and applied a darker coordinating ink.

(NOTE: I originally only was going to cover 1/2 my tag with this stencils but then covered the entire tag with the stencil for the finished project)

I then activated my oxide inks by spritzing with water and let dry.

I matted my tag onto cardstock and then stamped the bees onto my tag with D2BA Totally Black ink.

I then stamped my sentiment onto cardstock and die cut with D2BA Nesting dies. I also cut a mat by cutting the next size up from the dies and added to my tag.

I finished my card with a coordianting ribbon I created.

I took my white ribbon and drug it through ink that had been stamped on my kraft sheet and then let it dry!

I really hope you are inspired to get stamping and Stenciling!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve got a houseful of men.  Four sons!  Well, actually two are biologically mine and two are step-sons, but it’s still a whole lotta boy.  Making masculine cards isn’t easy, but I think I did good on this card using the Hoot Hoot and Texture A stamp sets to make this:
Love those owls!  They are a hoot!  To make this card, I stamped one of the texture stamps onto Kraft card stock with VersaMark and wet embossed with Ranger gold embossing powder.  I hadded some Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint distress oxide inks and sprayed with a bit of water to blend.  I also splashed a little Vintage Photo distress oxide ink onto the card.  I colored the owl with Copic markers:  G40, G43, Y26, Y28, E41, and E42.  Here’s a close-up:

And HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
The Dare 2B Artzy Challenge this month is about gratitude.  Have you joined yet?  You should!  There’s a chance to win a fabulous prize!  We are grateful to you, our customers!  You are simply wonderful….like this card says:
I used leaves from the Embrace stamp collection and another leaf, a flower and the sentiment from the Blissful Blooms stamp collection.  To create the background, I randomly stamped the leaves with VersaMark ink and wet embossed using Ranger gold embossing powder.  Then I inked up with several Distress Oxide Inks (Lucky Clover, Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey and Walnut Ink.  Then I colored the flower with C1, YG00, Yg03, YG06, YR12, YR14, YR16, Y13, Y15 and Y18. I cut the flower in half and used it to frame the sentiment.  I added some Nuvo inks for fun embellishment.  Here’s a close-up:
