SVG Cutting Files & PKS Blog Hop


GOOD MORNING!!

Welcome to Day #2 of our Blog Hop/Cross Promotion with Peachy Keen Stamps and SVG Cutting Files.  It's sure been fun, and we've enjoyed sharing all these wonderful creations with you!    Here's the card I created for today's festivities.  For this sweet card, I used the "Cute As Can Bee" cut file from SVG Cutting Files.  The base of my card is another great cut file from SVG Cutting Files, called Scalloped Open Card Base.



I am so happy with how this turned out.  For the face of this sweet little lady, I used the new PK-1200 Moodies Face Assortment stamps, and the PK-195 Honey Sentiments, both from Peachy Keen Stamps.  I cut everything with colored card stock and did some shading with both sponges and Copic markers, EXCEPT for the hair.  The hair was cut with (white) X-Press It Blending Card so that I could color and shade it with my Copics.  The honeycomb is a Sizzix embossing folder, and the paper I used for that is Core'dinations (kraft core) card stock.  I sanded the embossed edges lightly and sponged the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink.   I took some patterned paper scraps and punched little hexagon shapes to fit inside the embossed hexagons, and as a backdrop for this sweet little bee, I used the same patterned paper scraps to cut a circle and scalloped circle with my Spellbinders dies.  The scalloped edge along each side of my card is done with a Stampin' Up! punch and the ribbon is also from my Stampin' Up! stash.  I finished this card off with a little bling on her antennae, and down the side of the card.  I ♥ HER and she is indeed as cute as can bee!!

Now, this wouldn't be a blog hop if we didn't have some prizes for ya, and we've got that covered!!  Both Peachy Keen Stamps and SVG Cutting Files are giving away a $35 Gift Certificate for each day of the hop!  THAT'S a total of FOUR $35 Gift Certificates that you could win!  All you need to do is leave a comment to be entered to win, but since we don't know which designer will be choosing a winner from their comments, you'll need to comment on each participating blog each day.  THAT'S pretty darned easy, though, and especially considering all the FABULOUS creations that you get to see along the way from BOTH design teams!!  Below, is a complete list of stops for Day #2 of our hop, just in case you should happen to get lost along the way.
