More New Stamps

Good Morning Peeps! I feel so much better today, almost like myself again. YEAH!!!! I was able to actually eat a meal last night.

More new stamps in the house!!! I got another shipment of back order items yesterday and another expected on Wednesday, that one is only one set. Feels good to use new rubber! I am such a Stampin' Up girl, what can I say, I love alot of other stamps but the SU ones always make me feel so happy!!! I'm a geek!!!! I think it is all the excitement surrounding the new cattie and the fact that we wait so long for it. Anyway, on to the card.

I used this sketch on the Mojo Blog for both of today's cards. The first being with the super cute and so fun new SU set called "Just buzzin by". It is adorable and makes me think of the Bee Movie! I really am not into animated movies much, but I did love the Bee Movie! So cute!

I stamped the hive image onto watercolor paper with black stazon and colored with my summer sun marker and more mustard ink from the ink pad. used close to cocoa and chocolate chip for the base. Blending it all together with my aquapainter. I did the bees in the same way and cut them out and popped them up with some dimensionals. I also used some star dust stickles on the wings. The DS paper is from the level 1 hostess pack in more mustard. It reminded me of a honeycomb so I thought it would look cute with these bees. To make the sentiment I used my black marker and colored the words I wanted off of the saying and stamped on the watercolor paper and punched them out and layered them up .

This one made with the same sketch using the new Love you much Stamp bundle. The DS paper is from that bundle and is called Candy Lane. It is sooooo pretty!!

I used my nesties to cut the circles and scallop circles in both cards. On the love you much card I used the heart punch and stamp from the bundle and some riding hood red ribbon. Added a photo corner to the top with some silver sticky rhinestones.

So what do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Stamping!!!
