Little Lady Bee


I just love the Little Lady set from Papertrey Ink! I've been having so much fun with all of their acrylic sets--I guess I've taken a bit of a break from my stash of SU! stamp sets so I can gear up for the new catty!


For this card, I turned the ladybug into a bumblebee using the Faux Ribbon set (also by Papertrey Ink) and the 'kissing' technique. I did have to use my marker to darken the stripes a bit, bit it was easy. The body of the bee is Barely Banana ink, and the main card is the same color. I edged the white panel with black ink to set it off just slightly (you can see this IRL, but not so much in the photo). To finish, I added this fun prima with a large silver brad in the center and the fun dotted May Arts ribbon. And the 'celebrate' sentiment makes this a good card for many occasions!
