Hi friends! Just wanted to share a super fun set of birthday cards I made for some of the special girls in my life! I made 4 of these cards, but I gave one away before I remembered I wanted to take a picture of the set! I started off with this week's Taylored Expressions sketch, and got to work with lots of yummy papers from the Flower Shower Spring Stack by DCWV. I have to say that this is probably the first DCWV stack that I absolutely LOVE- the colors are right up my alley. Anyway, I used a stamp by Stampendous, some yellow American Crafts cardstock, and ribbon/staples from my stash. The brads are Target, and the bee is embellished with Doodlebug sugar coating and/or flocking. I had a tough time with the flocking because I wanted to do yellow AND black flocking, but I did the yellow first, and then the black flocking was sticking to the yellow, so then I switched to black glitter, but that didn't work too much better. Next time I'll have to remember to do the darker color first- oops! The bee guy also has some Prisma glitter to jazz up his wings ;) These cards were a ton of fun to make- I really miss mass producing. I just went through all of my patterned papers and pulled out the older stuff so I can work on using it up! No more buying paper just because it's on clearance- I only buy the stuff I absolutely LOVE now! :) Hope you're all having a cool week- it's been pretty humid here in NY- man, I can't wait for fall to arrive!!!
