Today I have two more cards I created for the DTGD challenges on SCS; each combined two challenges. The first uses a set I love from the Kim Hughes Collection by Cornish Heritage Farms (before she created Paper Smooches) called 'The Birds & the Bees':
(please click on the photo for clearer resolution). I embossed the beehives with white PE on glossy cardstock and then sponged Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip ink over them and wiped them off with a tissue for a speckled effect. Then I stamped the bees and tiny heart and colored them with Copic markers and popped them up with Pop Its against the background. I handpainted a little 'Extreme Glitter' acrylic paint (it is REALLY sparkly when it dries!) over the bees' wings and the heart for an extra touch of sparkle, and VOILA! Card for hubby for next valentine's day is DONE (unless I make something I like better before then) ;)
This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:
- MilkCoffee's 'Emboss It' Challenge,
- Craft-Room Challenge - heat embossing, and
- Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes (I know a ton of folks enter this, but I LOVE Simon Says Stamp, so it can't hurt, right?)
This card also fulfills the requirements of the following challenges:
- Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Ode to Sunshine,
- The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Bring on the Heat,
- Moxie Fab World's Birthday Card Challenge, and
- PartyTime Tuesdays - Anything Goes.

Cute card. What a great way to use that stencil. Thank you for joining us at Party Time Tuesdays. Good luck, we hope to see you next week.
Two really sweet cards! I like how you made the landscape scene for your second card, with the bright yellow of the sun together with that green grass! Your bee hives background looks fabulous, and those bees are too cute!
