Hello all!!! I feel like Mr Rogers every Wednesday because I always say, Its Wednesday and we all know what that means!!! Its Belli Challenge day AGAIN!!! But fear not, I havent donned my goloshes and my old sweater from the closet just yet. I been stamping tho!!! Using some of my brand new stamps to create this card above!!! This stamp set is Brand New from Stampin Up and its called Just Buzzin' By. It will be in the new catalog coming out January 19th. I really had a hard time with this stamp set at first. I think you just need to find the right sketch to work with and then it all falls into place.
I used the weekly sketch from over at CPS's site. Sweet n Sassy Stamps are sponsoring this weeks sketch design so I combined my 2 challenges. Belli Challenge and CPS sketch challenge!!!
You can find that sketch challenge here: http://cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.com/ For Sweet 'n Sassy Blog candy here: http://sweetnsassystamps.blogspot.com/2009/01/monday-dt-challenge-8.html
As for the papers and ink I used, they are all Stampin Up products. I used only Basic Black ink on this card. As for the papers, I started with Tangerine Tango, Hawaiian Papaya Designer Series paper, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, and Apricot Appeal. Now for people who are like me and missed the day in Kindergarten when they taught us all how to color, the way around that is to stamp the image in black directly onto the colored paper that you would have colored it. Someone told me who saw this set, Oh I cant buy that set, I would have to color it. Well, this is how I find my way around the coloring part. Plus to make it even more interesting, I made the Bee Hive POP out by making layers of it and mounting them on pop dots. The three little bees in this set were so cute, I HAD to buy the set lol.
