TGIF! It's Friday and time for a new reveal over at Stuck on U Sketches. This week's challenge is very open to interpretation BUT you do need to use a Die Cut tool or machine of some kind. The theme is "Spring is in the Air." Perfect for Easter weekend, huh?
So, for a while now I've been wanting to cut the bee from the Sentimentals cartridge and took this opportunity to do it .. "egged on" by my scrap promoting husband who thinks I need to do something other than butterflies for a change. Hmmm ... but I didn't want to use black and yellow, so I went pale yellow with brown to make it more of a honey bee. LOL
As you can see, I have welded my bee base to a rectangle and cut that from a pale yellow Bazzill card stock. Then covered that with a piece of Basic Grey Curio paper, although I have forgotten the pattern name. Sorry. While I'm on this photo, I wanted to point out that the Bee Happy sentiment is cut from the Cricut Just Because Cards cartridge using brown card stock. Because this had no shadow cut, I hand trimmed a shadow from the yellow Bazzill c/s. Then I placed the sentiment on foam squares for dimension. It looks super cute!
This is a side photo of my cute little honey bee. I cut several layers and mounted them on one another using foam squares and got quite a bit of height. Next I added a ribbon to my bee and accented that with a small paper rose from my stash. It all made for a heavy little bee attached to the card base but I was super pleased with how it turned out! I have already sent it out to a dear friend.
Well, I just want to say thanks for coming by to those who do! I know this is a busy weekend for most families. So your visit is appreciated! We will be spending Sunday at church and then with family. Got to watch those grand babes hunt their eggs!!!
See you next time!
