One Layer Card and a LO

Sometimes it's fun to challenge myself to design a one layer card with just stamping. I got some new Basic Grey stamps, Urban Prairie from the Mother's and Daughter's store to play with and I love them:) The flowers and stems are from the set. The adorable bee is from CHF, Kim Hughes line and the sentiment is an ancient $1 stamp that finally saw some ink! I lightly sponged some Palatte Ballet Blue for the sky, added some stickles to the bees wings and flower centers and finished it with a bit of sheer polka dot pink ribbon. These one layer cards are great to send in the mail since they don't need extra postage.
Got another LO done too! The sketch was from Inspired Blue Prints, I changed some things but that was my inspiration. I used up some alphabet letters I have...I have quite a bit of chipboard and such but always tend to use my Cricut for my LO titles...I'm trying to use up some of my stash. I used a MS punch on the border and my Cuttlbug embossing folder for the flower and red border. The journalling tag and blue panel was stamped with a CHF Lined Paper Backgrounder, which I {heart}.
I have a new technique to share with you, at least it's new to me! I need to get some photos and I'll post on it soon. Also... some blog candy may be coming in the near future so stay tuned for that! I hope you have a wonderful, creative day:)
