Just Buzzin' By
So... my Aunt arrived and as soon as I could get away, we started stampin! She brought with her this new set from Stampin'Up! called Just Buzzin' By. How cute is that bee?
The vase is actually the honey pot that comes in the set! As soon as I saw it, I thought about the pot. Maybe because I love the flower stamp! I inked the pot very carefully excluding the honey and the lid. I stamped it, then masked it, then stamped the flowers. It does look a little plain on the top so I added some gingham ribbon to cover it up. Gingham ribbon fixes everything! :) I could have stamped a better looking pot if I had my marker to use, but I didn't so this worked fine.
I colored the entire image with Copics from Our Craft Lounge. I'm not sure from which sets... I will let you know tomorrow. They are all mixed up in a container. I wasn't going to finish this until tomorrow, but I just couldn't wait. Plus, tomorrow the kids go back to school, and I have a breakfast date and a meeting with my girls. So, it's another easy card from me..... but I love how it turned out!
