A two card day

I have a couple of cards to post today. They are just kind of fun cards.




This Queen Bee card was done using Nestabilites circle dies and the Pinking die. I really like how the round cards come out. The Bee stamp in by Stampendous and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Honey Bee set. The cardstock is Papertrey and the patterned paper is from Basic grey. Lots of bling and stickles used as well.


The next card is really a gift card holder using a "belly band". I really like how this one came out. The cardstock is from Papertrey Ink and well as the polka dot patterned paper. Lots of different dies used here. From Nestabilites I used the labels 4 dies, the pinking die and the circle die. From Quickutz I used the cupcake (4x4 die) to make the popcorn container and I used the the quickutz (2x2) popcorn die. Chalk was used to shade the popcorn. The coupon stamp is from Hero Arts and the word "popcorn" is spelled out using the Simple Alphabet set from Papertrey Ink. The actual "band" wrapping around the card was cut from cardstock using the Stampin Up scalloped edge punch. The ribbon was from my stash. The card will open up by sliding the "band" off to reveal a gift card for the local movie theatre.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
