Sunday Stamping With Melissa Cash: Bumbly Bees

For today's post, Melissa Cash chose 10987MC Bumbly Bees Clear Set (drawn by artist Tammy DeYoung) for her project:


She featured the girl bee and one of the sayings (0812J Ms. Bumbly's Bouquet and 2914D Bee's Knees in the wood mounted versions) to create this bee-utiful card:


Here are the instructions she provided for it:

Fold 4 1/4" x 11” cream cardstock in half to create card base. Adhere 1 1/2" strip of honey-colored print paper to bottom of card. Add strip of coordinating scrap paper just above print strip to hide seam. I used a scalloped punched piece. Round all for corners of card with a medium corner rounder.

Stamp bee image in black ink onto cream cardstock and color with Copic Markers. Round corners with small corner rounder. Adhere to layer of green cardstock that you have also rounded the corners on with a small corner rounder. Apply image panel to the left side of the card using foam mounting tape.

Tie ribbon around the card and place bow on the left side, just under the stamped image. Stamp sentiment on cream scrap in black ink and cut out with oval die/punch and layer to green scallop oval cut with a die/punch. Adhere sentiment to front of card with foam tape. Add glitter glue to bee's wings.

In her online interview, Melissa said, "I really like coloring, whether it is with markers or pencils. I also like lots of layers and attention to detail and finishing touches."

As you can see, did a fantastic job with the coloring and details. Hope you're inspired to create a buzz-illion cards...or even just a few! :-)
