I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far? It has finally decided to cool down here and it is a nice and overcast, rainy day, so I’m enjoying it!
I know it’s been a while since I last posted but that is because I spent the last week in Bright, Victoria on a craft retreat with some amazing girls! We had so much fun, lots of laughs and of course, plenty of card making took place so I have lots to share with you all in the coming weeks!
I then got home and got hit with a shocking virus that’s been going around, so I’m finally starting to feel better and thought I’d pop in and share a fun card I created while at the retreat with you all.
I finally got to meet one of my best online crafting friends, Joy Taylor from Simple by Design and I have to say she is just as sweet in person as she is online! I had the best time with her and she was nice enough to let me play with the new Bee Friends stamp and die set by Pretty Pink Posh while we were at the retreat. It’s such a cute little set, I ended up playing with it quite a bit!
I started off by stamping my sentiment from the set directly onto my card base before stamping and die cutting two of the cute bees onto some extra cardstock so that I could paper piece them together using the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots patterned paper pad by MFT Stamps.
Once the bees were complete I then placed them onto my card base so that I could then stamp the dotted lines behind them, before then sticking them down with some adhesive foam.
I then coloured their wings with a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to give the cute bees some shimmer. Here is a close up to show you the glittery wings:
Finally, Then stamped on a heart from the stamp set, and finished the card off by embellishing it with some Lemon Meringue sequins by Pretty Pink Posh.
I will be sharing some more cards I created whilst away at the retreat, so be sure to stay tuned!
Have a fantastic weekend!
