Guest Designer Jenn Durand~ Hap-bee Birthday!
Hello everyone! This is Jenn and I’m here for my first Blank Page Muse blog entry. I’m going to show you how I made this HAP-BEE BIRTHDAY card using the Flowers and Leaves Border Art designed by Pam Bray and Bee Line Art Drawing stamp designed by Pam Bray.
I began by creating a background with Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint Distress Spray Stains from Ranger Ink.
Next, I stamped the Flowers and Leaves Border Art stamp twice with Memento ink in Tuxedo Black.
I stamped the Bee Line Art Drawing three times and fussy cut. Once cut out, I colored the bees with a Cadmuim Yellow Copic marker and added some Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard for a little sparkle. I put a tiny, little drop on each wing and spread it around with a toothpick (high-tech crafting, right?).
I decided to spread the joy of sparkle (who doesn’t love a little sparkle?) by adding some of the Nuvo Glitter Drops to the Flowers and Leaves stamped images. I put a couple drops on a craft sheet and used the handy toothpick again, this time by picking up some of the liquid and putting in on the flowers.
I got a label maker in a white elephant gift exchange this past Christmas so I put it to use by making a custom sentiment (HAP-BEE BIRTHDAY!). I actually stole it (in the gift exchange, not in real life) and everyone seemed confused that I would steal a label maker when there were so many other gifts to be had, but I knew I could use it in my crafts!
Finally, I put everything together. I used foam tape to give the bees some dimension. The card panel was layered with a black panel and adhered to the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog! Hope to see you again soon!
