As soon as I saw this darling image for the first time, I ran to the MFT store and ordered it right away. How cute can it get?

When  Jenn and decided to  cyber stamp yesterday, I knew it was the perfect time to get this set out. Okay..the brown isn’t quite orange….but it was an inspiration challenge. I like to take challenges as starting points to get me going and then…who knows where the card ends up. LOL

I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers (Bee costume: Y13, Y15, Y17, E08, E07, E19,    Hair: N5, N7, N9,    Skin: E000, E01, E11,    sky: B0000, B000,    Wings: BG10, BG11). The image was cut out with a Classic Rectangle Nestabilities die. MME Stella & Rose Gertie Paper was cut with MFT’s Grass Die-namics die and adhered to the bottom of the rectangle. Stardust Stickles Glitter was added to the wings of the image.

Since I was using a My Favorite Things image I thought I would use the card sketch from their weekly sketch challenge for my card. I was struggling with it for a bit until a way to make the layers look right for me.

For the layers I used patterned paper from MME Stella & Rose Gertie and Mabel paper pack. The bottom layers along with some white Melissa Frances Ribbon were stitched to the card base, a 4 1/4″ x 10″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, folded in half. The bottom corners were corner rounded.

The sentiment is from MFT’s Peek A Boo set. It was stamped on a piece of Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with Petite Oval Nestabilities and colored with Copic Markers (Y00, Y11, Y13). Recollection flowers (with some added Stardust Stickles) and Recollection Rhinestone swirls finish off the card front.

We might be cyber stamping some more tonight. Check in on facebook and hang out with us. Hugs and smiles
