Polkadoodles' Gems Challenge - Week 2: Anything Goes!

Good morning everyone. It's Saturday - time for a new Gem of a Challenge from Polkadoodles! You can find our challenge blog here: A Gem of a Challenge

Today's post is special because we've got a BRAND NEW Too Cute release for you!! These sweeties are just in time for winter and spring birthdays, Valentine's, and Easter too. I love them all - there's just no way to pick a favorite. This release comes in the option of black and white line art or pre-colored images, so much flexibility! For a limited time, there's a sale code you can use - TOOCUTE30 - to get 30% off images in this new release. Click fast!

I've used Too Cute Bee Heart Basket to create my card today. I printed him onto Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored with Copic Markers - I buy all of mine at for their low prices and fast shipping. I cut him with my scan n cut - so easy! 

To make the background, I used 2 different stencils, with 2 colors of Distress Oxide inks for each one. The pink heart used Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick. The Honeycomb used Fossilized Amber and Scattered Straw. I blended the inks with my blender brushes. Both stencils are from Time for Tea Designs - large heart masking stencil and bee hive stencil.

My sentiment today is from the Lily Bug Love Quotes Collection. I've used lots of foam squares on the bee and the sentiment, and I popped up the white layer over my card base with 1 thin layer of foam tape as well. Nuvo Dream Drops in Cloud Nine and Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew go along with my pink Doodlebug Sprinkles. Click to enlarge the photo and see all the details!
