It is so gorgeous outside today that it was hard for me to stay inside even for a little while! Full sun and 80 degrees. Yummy!
My share for today is a card that I designed using Stampin' Up's A Little Wild and Always & Forever Stamp Sets, Little Loves Framelits and Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies and Pretty Label Punch.
Let's take a look:
My Card Base is Soft Sky Cardstock cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored and folded at 4-1/4" for a top folding Card.
I trimmed out a piece of Old Olive Cardstock to measure 3" x 5-1/2". Using the Long and Skinny die from SU's Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies, I die cut the long 5-1/2" side of the Old Olive Cardstock twice. (The die isn't long enough to die cut all the way across the 5-1/2" side so you need to die cut it twice.)
Using SU's A Little Wild Stamp Set, I randomly stamped the Grass Blades in Old Olive Ink onto the Old Olive Panel that you just die cut as shown in the picture above. I adhered the Panel to my to my Card Base with Mono Multi Purpose Glue on both sides and the bottom of the Panel leaving the top free of adhesive.
Using SU's Always & Forever Stamp Set, I stamped the Tree Stump in Soft Suede Ink onto Soft Suede Cardstock. I fussy cut the Tree Stump out and adhered it behind the Old Olive Panel with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
I adhered 3 Melon Mambo Heart Enamel Shapes over the Hearts on the Tree Stump.
To see how I made and watercolored the Bee's, the Bee Hive and the Bear, please see my previous Bear Card post by clicking on the link below:
I adhered my Bee Hive to the bottom of the Tree Stump's Branch with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I fussy cut apart the Bear Tag and adhered the front of the Bear to my Card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Using SU's Little Loves Framelits Dies, I die cut out 3 of the Long Leaf Stems (saving one for the inside of my Card). I fussy cut the Long Leaf Stems in different lengths and adhered them behind the Bear with Mono Multi Purpose Glue as shown in the picture above.
I adhered 3 of the Bee's with Mono Multi Purpose Glue as shown in the picture above.
Using SU's A Little Wild Stamp Set, I masked off the Words Honey Bear and stamped the Words Hello There in Soft Suede Ink onto a scrap piece of Soft Sky Cardstock.
Using SU's Pretty Label Punch, I punched out my Sentiment, trimmed the top off and adhered it for a Cloud to the top of my Card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
For the inside of my Card:
I adhered the third Long Leaf Stem to the inside of my Card.
I masked off the Words Hello There and stamped Honey Bear to the inside of my Card with Soft Suede Ink as shown in the picture above.
I fussy cut out the back of the Bear Tag and adhered it to the inside of my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
I adhered one more Bee to the back of the Bear with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
This was such a fun card to make and it just makes me smile! I hope it makes you smile too!
That's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
