Buzzin' by to say Hi ..

The current challenge over at Less is More is to use two (at least) stamps on your card. At the WOYWW crop in May I coloured all of six images, yup, that's how much else was going on during the day :) Needing little cards to pop in with Snippets Playground Prizes I rustled up three of these the other day:
I used:

- 5" x 5" square white card blanks

- a stamp I'd wanted for ages by Penny Black called 'Gifts for you', stamped using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink, coloured with Polychromos pencils and Sansodor blending solution then just a tickle of clear Wink of Stella on the little bee's wing

- the sweet little sentiment is a discontinued (sorry!) Elzybells stamp, and I used SU's 'Certainly Celery' ink to stamp with

- then I just mounted the image onto a square of SU's 'Certainly Celery' card - job done!

I coloured a fourth one of these cute little images, but that's destined for a much more detailed card - watch this space :)



  1. This is ever so sweet and pretty. Bet that Wink of Stella looks fabulous IRL on those wee wings!

    Wonderful card!

  2. Hi Di

    These are gorgeous .. .. great prizes and a fabby little card from the playground toybox! What could be better.

    Hope you are having a good week.

    Love Jules xx

  3. Very cute and I love the way you've grounded the mouse at the very bottom of the card. Perfect.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  6. What a sweetie! Cute card Di which I love!

  7. I can see why you wanted this stamp - so cute and a lovely CAS card

  8. Gorgeous Miss. I coloured mine in pretty quick too but not quite used it yet. A few pressing things on this week - like an exhibition on Friday and Saturday - eeek! At least Fergus has finished his quilt now! Phew!

  9. Fabulous CAS style on this card and I love the sweet image xx

  10. Me again...yes it was only for consumables and was much easier than I thought it would be.

    I went to the garage sale and got some lovely papers...especially Xmas papers, a few embellies and then right back in the freezer again to make another hundred.
    I was only up to card 20 on my blog so I jumped ahead and showed the 50th card which was for a club commitment. Now I am back to showing them in the order I made them...think it is card 22 next up!
    I am now working on getting rid of certain things..I like to use up the last little bit of some things. It is a good feeling!

  11. Adorable card. I can just imagine all the fun and visiting at the Crop. I'm surprised you got six images colored!!


  12. What a sweet CAS card Di
