A Cute Couple…

Sheep and Bee

Hi All!

I’m using my Seamus Sheep stamp set again (see my last card here). I REALLY wanted some smiling bees to go with my Paper Smooches Courteous Cuties set. Perfect bees are hard to find, but I found them… in this Honey set by Inky Antics. So cute!

Here is a close-up of the colored sheep. I colored her (it’s a her, isn’t it? I think I called it a him in the video) with dots because I wanted her to look fluffy:

    I love your new website format, Darlene! I agree about bees! I’m holding out for Pretty Pink Posh’s new bee set. This card is adorable!

    OMG how cute is that card!! I don’t have any of those sets, nor any bee stamps, but think I might add them to my wish list! Thanks Darlene!

    Really cute card, Darlene! I honestly thought the inked panel was cardstock or patterned paper, before I saw the video. You did such a great job on the ink blending! I’ve gotten some of the Distress Oxides, but haven’t really played with them yet. I’ll have to break them out when I get a chance! 🙂 ~ Andrea

    This is just adorable. That Sheep knitting is so cute and the Bee is such a happy little guy.
    Love those oxide inks will need some soon I think.
    The frame really draws your eye in.

    This is really adorable! That bee is the cutest bee I’ve seen! I bought the oxide inks and love them too! So much easier to blend than the regular distress. Another great card Darlene!

    This card was adorable and very clever. I have that sheep stamp but no bees. Hmm! I guess that’s going on my wish list too.

    Men knit too. 🙂 (Tried to copy an image, but can’t.) Cute card! Doesn’t Paper Smooches have a bee stamp? For some reason, I thought they did.

    This is such a fun card… I just got the distress oxide inks – i liked the fact that they look easier to blend than the normal distress inks. I am looking forward to playing with them soon..

    Super cute card Darlene! I love the sentiment and I love the two critters together. An unlikely pair but oh so cute together! I so want the distress oxide inks, one day. Hugs, Brenda

    I love, love, love your card! It is to stinking cute for words! LOL I don’t have any bee stamps because I am terrified of them! I’ve never been stung but if you’ve ever seen how bug bites swell up on me & itch for days and days, then you would know why I am scared to get stung. People say I am probably allergic and I don’t want to find out. However, this bee is adorable and I would like him or her. My mom knits and I have a Christmas knitting sheep stamp set but there are a few of the stamps in the set that aren’t Christmas, like the knitting sheep so they can be used any time. Since I don’t have a bee stamp yet I would have to say Ewe are so cute! That would work, right?
