It's a BEE-utiful Day!

Happy Monday, everyone! I really like seeing my cards at the top of my posts, and it's been bugging me that they've been relegated to the bottom, so I'm switching the order. Card first, then Bingo! :)
I made today's card for the CPS #18 sketch challenge. I really liked this simple layout, but of course....I couldn't keep it simple!

I started by stamping the Stampendous Daisy Bee in Ancient Page Coal Black and coloring in with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I then added a little doodle frame and matted on a Chocolate Chip Mega scalloped circle and a Crate Paper Giga scalloped circle. All of the DP is from the Crate Paper Cowboy line. I then cut a square of the patterned paper and pierced around the edges and used my Creative Memories circle cutter to cut a circle large enough for the Giga scalloped circle to fit in. I then pierced around the edges of the circle and matted on a 5.25" square Chocolate Chip card base. The sentiment is from the PaperTrey Faux Ribbon set and I made sure to stamp it on a star. I added a little EK Success sticks rhinestone bling for accent and also to the corners I made with a Mega scallop square punch. Finished off with Stardust stickles on the wings and flower and scallops.

  1. What a bee-utiful card!! I love how you cut through the patterned paper!! Those bees are so cute! I hope you know that you enabled me to buy one of those stamps the other day!! I just say 'It's all Julee's fault....she made me!!' *giggle*

  2. Morning Julee! I love your bee card, it's so cheerful and fun. I haven't seen the cowboy line of paper yet,so I need to get my butt into the store and find it! I'm glad you moved the cards to the top of the posts, you do such great work to hide them down at the bottom. BTW, you never did show us a picture of your new entertainment center.....please do that!


  3. Okay, that little Bee is just too cute! Now I am going to have to make something with it. LOL

    You know, I just have to say... I am not doing to well on the bingo. What is up with that? I guess I better get my bingo sketch cards done & posted so I have some more chances!! :)

    Thanks for such a fun game!

    Toodles, Karrie

  4. I am loving this card! Love all the circles! Now I am regretting that I did not get in on your bingo game.....

  5. You are awesome!! I love it sooo much!!

  6. Morning Julee! You know, my favorite part of your blog is by FAR your incredible, intricate, detailed cards, and today it was nice to see them back on top. This one is so full of little detail that I had to keep looking and looking! I love how you stamped the sentiment on the star PP, and added the tiny blings, and that PP is really NICE! I think you executed the CPS #18 challenge perfectly!

  7. I LOVE your little bee card! It couldn't be cuter! Now... I've got to stop typing and go look at it again!

  8. This bingo round is not good for me either! i guess I need to get busy on some more cards and get some more numbers up.
    Love the bee! Nice job of the challenge!

  9. I like your cards at the top of the post too! They're gorgeous. This card is wonderful! I love the sentiment stamped right on that star and, of course, the bling. And those photo corners ROCK. I'll have to try to figure them out.

  10. Love the bee card! All the layers are great! Lovin' the bingo too!

  12. very nice card - love the pp you used and that bee is too cute!! love all the extra details on the card too!!

  13. Your cards are so beautiful! The details you put into them really makes the card. I think I'm going to have to lift some of your cards until I can get my own style together (I'm very new at this).

  14. Love the card! I have been harding my three images I received from Beate because I won't start anything unless I can guarantee it's going to be fabulous - just like this!!

  15. What an adorable card! I am glad it is back at the top too...I love seeing your work first thing! I used yesterday's sketch to make a card...I posted it on today's blog.

  22. This is such a cute card. I love how you did the corners! I did a card for the sketch challenge but I'm not sure if it qualifies as I put the circle of center(I should have double checked the sketch before stamping. LOL!!)...I still had fun playing anyway. Thanks for the inspiration.

  27. I just LOVED the card you posted, so I had to CASE it a bit! Here is my card using the new Sketch!

  28. Hi Julee, I was in my favorite stamp store...Dragonfly in NY...and saw one of the cards you made! I immediately recognized your handiwork!! Love your cards and yes, they belong at the TOP!

  29. I've got one for you!
