CPS and CHF

Don't you just love all of the abbreviations we have created in life? Just makes it easier as long as you know what a person is referring too!!! My title refers to Card Positioning Systems blog sketch for this week and the fact that I used these great stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms for my card. My friend, Julia Stainton was the designer for this great Rummage Bin set.

All of the details on my card are stamped except the raffia ribbon and the pearl head stick pin. I used a "vintage text" background that I stamped over a slightly patterned paper and then accented that with some Glimmer Mist and inking with stamp pads and some other stamped designs. The "honey do" piece and the little bee are colored with Copic markers. I poked holes in the card for my little bee trail but I didn't like that they didn't show up well, so I went over them with a black pen that I poked in each hole.
If you look closely, you can see that I then coated the bee hive and the bee with Aleene's Paper Glaze. I love how easy it is to use this glaze and I love the resulting epoxy look that it gives accents. It is a bit hard to photograph but it looks wonderful IRL. I also used foam tape to add dimension to some of the elements. I almost own stock in that company about now for how much I use 3D foam tape anymore!!!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
