Hi friends, I'm popping in today with a quick little card I made with leftovers and scraps that were on my desk. There hasn't been much crafting for me lately, I guess I've been feeling like a little square that's supposed to go in a round hole, but can't quite figure out how to go about it! Every day or so I go sit in the studio for about 5-10 minutes with the intention of stamping and then no motivation comes and I move along. I've come to know this cycle, and it usually ends up with a wonderful creative outpouring afterwards, but struggling through the "meh" is a bit difficult, and always makes me second guess whether or not I'll ever be creative again. However, this card came together so easily... especially since all the stamping was done previously! LOL
I had stamped the honeycomb circles and sponged them, as well as cut the bee from The Buzz out with the coordinating The Buzz Die Set. The sentiment is from the same sent, with the mine portion coming from Twitterpated. I stamped these all for a Mojo Monday card earlier this month and then decided I wanted them on cream cardstock instead of white, so set these to the side until today. I matted the circles with some gold vellum pinking circle diecuts and then did a split background of so saffron and strawberry slush, embossed with the chicken wire embossing folder.
Super quick and a fun little valentine! I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday. Thanks so much for stopping by!
