Little Baby Bumblebee

Afternoon everyone, now I know I said in my post yesterday that I wouldn't be back until Wednesday but I was going through my card making challenge bookmarks on my laptop and came across a sketch challenge that I really wanted to try out and the deadline is tomorrow. I've been following the Clean and Simple colours and sketches blog for a little while now but haven't had a chance to play along before. Below is a copy of this weeks sketch challenge:

I really liked the angles on the sketch and hadn't tried to do a card like this before so just had to have a go. Here's my card inspired by the sketch:

This cute little baby bumblebee is from the Spring/Summer catalogue and when I saw him I wrote maybe across the top of the whole page as I wasn't 100% sure I wanted to get them but I'm really glad I have little will power when it comes to buying new Stampin' Up! items because now that he's coloured in he looks so cute! I used my blendabilities pens to colour him in, which with the exception of the skin colour pack, are available for FREE as part of sale-a-bration when you spend £45! Here is a close up so you can see the shading:

The sentiment and baby are all one stamp but I decided I wanted to separate them and so used one of the wooden elements to set the sentiment apart without it getting lost. The DSP I have used on the triangles really lends itself to new baby cards as it is full of pastel colours in blues and pinks, this could really easily be turned into a baby girl card by changing which sheet of DSP you use.

That's it for today, thank you for stopping in to read my blog. This time I really will be back tomorrow with some more weekly deals!



  1. So glad you decided to join in this week at CC&S, welcome. Love your interpretation of the sketch and it's always a bonus to have another card in mind off the back of one already made. Thanks for playing.

  2. Your card is adorable! I'm so glad you decided to give our sketch a try. I hope you'll join us again soon at CC&S for another challenge. :)
