For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC766), we are headed to Allen Designs Studio & after much browsing, I chose THIS for my inspiration.

 

My card features these cute little bees & sunflowers on a Slimline card. I’m really loving these new dies! After I die cut the white front & all the flowers & bees, I put them together. For the background, I found a leftover piece of mixed media I made, who knows how long ago, using metallic acrylic paints. I liked the colors so I die cut circles bigger than the openings (to show thru the little dots surrounding the circles), then cut them again w/ smaller circles. I used a honeycomb die on the smaller circles, then put them back inside, leaving out a few of the hexagons. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Mix Challenge (MIX165) is winged things & to have at least 2 different kinds of media. For my card, I used ink, Copic markers & embossing powder.

To make my hexagons, I stamped & heat embossed using a pale yellow powder, onto black card stock. Some were embossed w/ dots, some w/ a honeycomb & some w/ stripes. They were then die cut using either the Spellbinders hexagons or the MFT honeycomb dies. The white front was die first w/ matting basic, then cut w/ a stitched rectangle & a black layer inserted between them.  The greeting stamped & the other two little bees were stamped on a scrap (the right facing bee is actually a mirror image) & fussy cut. The hexagons were attached, with some of them elevated.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Another congrats to Nancy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS387)! Such a wonderful gallery and I had my eye on THIS card of Nancy’s. I kept the cute bee theme and colors, but I used different images, a different layout and omitted the sequins and banners.

After stamping the hive, bees & two greetings, I colored them with Copics and die cut the right edge then edged the whole panel with a bright yellow Permapaque marker. I stamped the honeycomb a few times down the right side of a black panel using white ink then added some small punched yellow circles in the center. I stamped one extra honeycomb, cut it out and added a little yellow button in the center. These are the Copics I used to color everything.
