Bee sting card

I made kenzie's dad a card when he got stung by a bee, then we found out he was allergic to bees!

I made him this cuteee little beehive card to make him smile :)

I cut out the beehive and the little bees from the CAC cartridge. I then inked the edges with distress ink in walnut stain, and spritzed it with walnut ink.. I love the way it came out!

I cut the wings out of vellum for the clear effect, added googly eyes and stickles to their antennaes, and stitching and dots on his little stinger.

I gave this one eyelashes to make her a girl :)

I glued the two parts of the hearts together to make the base of the card and it opens upwards..

Mission accomplished... it made him smile :)

Thanks for visiting!

Our First Father's Day Together

This year was my fiance's and my first father's day together. I just recently moved in with him and there is nothing up on the walls yet in our room so I wanted to make him a cute banner for father's day.

I used the Lacy Labels cartridge for the shapes cut at 6" each and Simply Sweet for the letters.
All paper is from The Best of K&Co stack.

Both butterflies are cut from the Serenade cartridge. On the black part of the body I used Diamond glaze to make him shiny and left the wings unglued for dimension.

I used Salmon Pearl Pen for the accents and Star Dust Stickles for the body.

All stamps are from Studio G.

Flower is 3 layers of Prima flowers with a small pastel brad to hold them together and put on a pop dot.

Shoe is from the Sweethearts cartridge and I drew in the laces and white dots.

Bird is also from the Serenade cartridge.

I tied each panel together with a small piece of coordinating ribbon and strung them up on the wall. He LOVED it! :)

Thanks for visiting,

Happy Crafting! :)
