Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I’m joining in with another blog hop with Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world sharing ideas relating to a monthly theme. This month the theme is “Love is in the Air” (I immediately think of the song by Australian singer John Paul Young who had a hit song with that title – do you remember it?)

I’ve been making some cards with the Bee My Valentine stamp set lately, so I thought it would fit in with this month’s theme. Here is my card.

I used the lovely Petal Patterns die set to create the background for the card, I die cut the more solid layer from Poppy Parade cardstock, and the overlay in Basic White that had an Adhesive Sheet stuck to the back – this made it really easy to stick to the layer underneath. The die set is suited to a square card format, so I adhered the two layers onto a Crushed Curry card base.

The cute bee is from the Bee my Valentine set, stamped in Crushed Curry and Memento Tuxedo black ink on white cardstock. The wings are stamped with Petal Pink and Memento black (stamped off first to give a lighter grey outline). The body, wings and antennae were punched out using the Bee builder punch and I used Mini Glue Dots to attach the pieces together.

The sentiment is from the Be my Valentine set, and is stamped in Poppy Parade ink. I punched the sentiment out using the Heartfelt Hexagon punch. I used Dimensionals to attach the bee and the sentiment to the card front. I added some Iridescent Rhinestones to the open centres of the flowers for some bling.

Here are the links to the rest of the team in this month’s blog hop, so grab a cuppa and have a look at what everyone else has created!
