What's The Buzz?

Good morning peeps! Today, I'm sharing with you the make and take we did over in Roseburg. Super fun and easy! We used the set called Just Bugz.

This is my little tri-fold card. I designed it back in 2007 for Portland Stampin'Up! Regionals. You can see a tutorial here. They are so fun to make... especially with all the cool double sided designer papers available today! The circle in the front of the card is made with the Circle Nestabilities. The scallop is a Marvy punch, then I used the same circle Nestie to get the perfect size hole in the center of the scallop.

When you cut the designer paper, you need a piece 4 x 11, so I took that extra strip of paper and added it to the inside. We used the circle that was punched out of the center on the inside layered under the bee.

The bee is SUPER cute! He has Eyeliner Black Sparkly Fluff on his body, so he's all soft and sparkly! You just have to touch him... and you won't get stung either!! On the wings, we used Cosmo Crystal ultra fine glitter. We applied both with a Quickie Glue Pen. The eyes and end of the antennas are dotted with Sakura Black Glaze... so they are raised up and look embossed. We also used the blue circle piece left over when we made the scallop frame for the center. We stamped our sentiments on it and added it to the inside. I LOVE it when you can use all the scrap pieces from a project. :)

No matter how you change the papers & stamps, your tri-fold will remain a "staple" for stampers, oh Queen of Pinkalicious!
