SC211: BeE-CaUsE I LoVe YoU


I actually did an SCS challenge the day & posted!  Can you believe it?  I thought today's sketch was a lot of fun & I had this idea for a card in my head for a few days.  The envelope was already done & was just sitting on my desk begging to be put on a card!  I didn't take pictures while I was making it, but it's pretty easy how I did it.  I stamped the envelope from Starving Artistamps' Doodlefactory Valentine Re-mix set on the upper part of my cardstock then scored at the bottom of it & folded it backward.  Then I drew in the top of the envelope and cut around the sides of the heart (removed tthe flap so there is an 'inside' of the envelope).  Make sense?  Then, I cut all around the bottom & glued it up on the sides only so now the sentiment can be slipped inside the envelope.  So fun!  

I embossed the chubby bee (Beezley) in black embossing powder and colored him in with SU! markers Yoyo yellow & Summer Sun.  The glittery cardstock behind Beezley is DCWV summer glitter stack and his wings have star dust stickles on them.  The cardbase is PTI Lemon Tart & cb embossing folder d'vine swirl is on Summer Sun cardstock.  The flower embellishment is Prima and I colored in my black gingham ribbon with a yellow copic marker.  

Are you envious of all the fun I'm having with my new stamps?  Well, check 'em out & if you have to have 'em - be sure to check out my sidebar for a 10% discount on Starving Artistamps or Doodlefactory stamps at the website.
