I get emails from so many different companies, and half the time I don't even know how they got my email address, but I got one a couple weeks ago, and they had this fun little bee on the email and I thought I am going to make him with punches. I am going to make a video on how I made him but I was gone all day hanging out with a dear friend of mine (Hi Jayne) so I didn't get it done. I will do it tomorrow. Luckily I made the card last night.
He makes me smile just looking at him. I am going to make some up to sell in my Etsy store, so let me know if you are interested. I will be putting different verses, and doing them on the computer instead of altering a stamp set like I did here. Aint he cute?
This is a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card. The inside of the card picture did not turn out, but it says "Nobody is better qualified".
Here is what I used:
Stamp Set: Smarty Pants (I just did some fancy masking to make the word "BE" turn into "BEE")
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White, Summer Sun Textured, Bashful Blue, Vellum, Pink Flamingo DSP
Ink: Basic Black
Misc: White gel pen, paper piercer, mat pack, Basic Black marker, Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder
Punches: 1/2" circle, Heart to Heart, 1 3/8" circle, Small Oval, My Way, 1/4" hand-held punch (this is punch that SU! does not sell anymore, but you probably have it, if not if you have the Daisie #2 Die, the little circle that comes out of the small daisy would work)
Come back tomorrow and I will show you how I made this cute little bee. Oh and don't forget you only have till noon AZ time to enter to win the blog candy.
Have a great Sunday and thanks for stopping in!
Oh he is sooo cute. I haven't seen a bee like this one before. So many people are coming up with punch critters!
can't wait to see the video!
Your Bee is adorable. I can't wait to do one for myself. Thanks for sharing.
The bee is soo cute. I taught the tin ceiling technique at a class last week and everyone loved it. Thanks so much for the great video tutorial. Have you seen your little bunny anywhere?
Very cute bee. I can't wait to see the video. I like how you added the vellum for the wings, I hadn't seen that before. Very cute.
