Lots of good stuff

Just gotta share some serious goodness...
This is a little box of candy with a cute wrapper to make it a fun gift. It is about 6" long.
I created my little bee with punches! I just started creating and this is what I came up with.
I embossed this great Core'dinations cardstock with a Fiskars texture plate. The texture plates will work with a Cuttlebug and the right layer of plates, etc. I love this honeycomb design.
Next a card using Card Patterns Sketch #48
This card includes many neat things. ONE, a new piece of Jenni Bowlin Embossed Core'dinations cardstock. That is the card base. All I had to do is sand the pattern, it is from the Whitewash collection.
Next is a really neat stamp by Pink Persimmon. It is meant to be a button but I just love it for a medallion kind of design. I colored it with Copic markers and the other really great accent to notice is the Ultra Fine Flower Soft! See my fluffy dots? I used Aleene's Tacky Glue to adhere the Flower Soft. That is what the company suggests works the best. It dries just right so that the Flower Soft is still soft when it is dry and it grabs the little flakes just right. Rhinestones finish off my piece.
And this next card is posted at the CARDS blog today. The challenge this week was LOVE cards without using red or pink and that is soooo hard. You have to check out the amazing cards that are posted there because they will take your breath away.
The chipboard piece is sprayed with Glimmer Mist. Love the copper look.
Notice this great piece of Jenni Bowlin embossed cardstock by Core'dinations.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
