Loving the BUZZ!
I'm so thoroughly enjoying the Spring Coffee Lovers Hop but had a few more challenges I want to enter too. It's the last day to enter the "Bee Silly" contest on the Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans FB page with 4 "Bee themed" digis on sale for only $1.50. You can check them all out HERE. On this card I've used #1425 Two Bees Friends but wanted to see if I could somehow incorporate it into a Hop card as well. At the Scrapbook Expo I saw some Coffee themed outline stickers I thought might be useful for the Hop and the bold black lines definitely worked with my color scheme. I peeled 'em off, stuck them on white cardstock, fussy cut them and did some coloring with my Copics.
For the card base I cut a Spellbinders Grand Dahlia and embossed it with Swiss dots and layered circle center (the top one embossed with a Cuttlebug honey comb folder) and layered the whole shebang on a Spellbinders Grand Decorative Labels One die cut that just happened to be laying on my desk (I told you I've got a mess in here, but sometimes it pays not putting things away. The lovely script Coffee Die is from Verve Stamps. This takes care of Simon Says Monday Layer it Up, Simon Says Wednesday More than One Die or Punch , and the Outlawz Twisted Thursday and Outlawz Saturday Paper a la Mode Embossing Challenge.
Here's a closeup of #1425 Two Bees Friends. They're colored with Copics, fussy cut and "bee"cause they're "Loving the (caffeine) BUZZ" I couldn't resist putting them on an action wobble. HeeHee! Sorry, no time to take a video of them in action. This post is long enough.
I'm also adding this to the Aud Sentiments any Sentiment Except Birthday, Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #54 AG, Pile it On #128 Humor or Plaid, Alphabet Challenge "A" is for Anything with Wings, Word Art Wednesdays #274-275, Your Scrapbook Place March AG (using Sponsor image), Tuesday Throwdown Add Dimension, Open-Minded Crafting Fun Movement in March and Crafty Friends "B" is for (bees, blooms, and BUZZ!).
