Bee-utiful...


I couldn't resist! When Clear Dollar Stamps put out the September Guest Designer Challenge, I knew I had to use their recently released Everyday Jar-gon set! This is just the most adorable set...with the jar, and various things to fill it with and sentiments to match!
I needed a Get Well card, so I went with the bees. If you click the pic, you can see the honeycomb embossing on the yellow circle. It was done using Fiskars Embossing plates and the Cuttlebug. I stamped the jar, lid and bees with black StazOn, and watercolored them. The little wings are colored with glitter pen to make them sparkle. I did the same with the BG paper. I couldn't resist using the little Bee button on the sentiment...it just fit there so perfectly. I took a liberty and put a little corner punch in to even things out. This was actually a fun sketch to do! Be sure to check out Clear Dollar Stamps as they have this set on sale thru Monday for 30% off! You will love it as much as I do!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a super week!

I love this! What a perfect way to use the layout. I love how you put the extra little circle up at the top. That poor corner looked so sad & alone on my card. LOL! This is a great card!
