JUST BUZZIN' BY - ALL ABOUT JOY




I think it has been a few weeks since I have created an ALL ABOUT JOY card. For those of you who are new here, I have a local friend Joy who often tells me she enjoys seeing my Stampin' Up! Only cards. So I have created a day for her. :) I try to put an SU only card once a week.

I used this as my Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast on Sunday, but I really went off course from the orginal card. :) You are supposed to change at least 2 things from the card, but I changed a few more. This week's Featured Stamper was Paulatracy and HERE is the card I cased. Her entire gallery of work is absolutely FABULOUS and her coloring is impeccable!

I used the Cuttlebug Highlights technique -and then sponged the edges with white craft ink. I colored these cute little bumble bees with Copics and used the Nestibilities to frame them, then the Big Shot Top Note die.

You will notice, I did use Dew Drops on this card, if you would choose to use strictly SU, I would advise Joy to use the Black Vintage Brads in place of the Dew Drops - but I prefer the Dew Drops.


Now, anyone who gets this card will be VERY special - because I decorated the inside! :) Come back tomorrow for the BELLI CHALLENGE in between your Christmas preparations or when you are ready to wind down! HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
