Here are my two challenge Valentines:

I made these Valentine’s Day cards for my kindergarten great niece and my pre-k3 great nephew. I made 14 of the bear card and 18 of the bumblebee Flirty Flamingo card. They were so much fun to make! I’m really looking forward to getting pictures of the two of them writing out the cards.

When I am mass-producing cards, I get all my pieces done first, then color, stamp, and assemble. I used the Bee Mine suite of products and the Fluffiest Friends stamp and die set.

Flirty Flamingo Bumblebee:

  • The Flirty Flamingo base measures 3-1/4 by 5 inches.
  • The DSP measures 3-1/8 by 4-7/8 inches.
  • I used the dark Flirty Flamingo blend to color the Black & White Gingham Ribbon. Easy peasy.
  • I punched out the Flirty Flamingo sentiment panel using the Heartfelt Hexagon punch..
  • Stamp the dotted line for the flying bee using Momento Tuxedo Black ink.
  • I punched a piece of black cardstock using the bee punch so I would have a template for stamping.
  • For stamping the body of the bee I used Daffodil Delight and black, the antenna pieces, and then stamped the wings using Flirty Flamingo ink.
  • Then I punched the pieces and used multipurpose liquid glue to adhere them to the DSP.

Bee Mine:

  • The layers are Daffodil Delight, black, and white cardstock. I used three consecutive deckled rectangle dies to crop the layers.
  • The strip of DSP at the bottom is one of the patterns from the Bee Mine 12 x 12″ DSP. I added a thin piece of retired washi tape to the top of the DSP.
  • The Fluffiest Friends bear is colored using the blends combo sets for Smoky Slate, Daffodil Delight, and Sweet Sorbet.
  • I punched the hearts using the Bee Mine punch from another Bee Mine pattern.
  • The bee mine sentiment fit perfectly in the retired classic label punch.
  • The adorable trios of bees randomly stamped on the white cardstock using black ink and colored the bees using a Daffodil Delight marker.
  • All the pieces are adhered using multipurpose liquid glue.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Have a Peachy Day!
