Happy Monday, to all our Get Inky! friends!!!
Kathy here today from Up in the Night with Kat with some inspiration for you. But first, I want to tell you how excited and honored I am to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for Get Inky! Stamps. So THANK YOU, Thia, for this wonderful opportunity!!!
As many of you know, I just LOVE Get Inky! stamps . . . they are so versatile and so cute!!! And because they are so versatile, I was able to use the "Buzzing Bees" stamp set on a fall card for this week's challenge on Get Inky! Challenge blog.
The current challenge on the Get Inky! Challenge blog is a Fall or Halloween card with buttons. At first, I was unsure what I was going to do because I don't have the Get Inky! Stamps "Halloween Spooktacular 2013" stamp set (it is actually the only one I do NOT have . . . BUT it is on it way as we "speak" right now -- lol). But then as I was looking out at my flowers, a light bulb went on . . . I saw some bees just buzzing around . . . going from flower to flower, collecting the pollen so they can make honey and store it up for the winter, and being a "country" girl, I knew this was something they do every FALL to get ready for winter.
So there I had it . . . I was going to use my "Buzzing Bees" stamp set for my card.
Since I needed more "generic" cards for my card stash, I decided to keep my card CAS (clean and simple) card for this challenge with just a little color from some twine. In addition to my stamping, I used Marigold and Charcoal twine from the Twinery, wrapping it around the top-middle part of the card twice and folded up the bottom corner of the front of the card and attached a button. I also used a little bit of "Frosted" Stickles on the wings of my bees to give them a little something.
Remember, the current challenge at Get Inky! was doing a card with a Fall or
Halloween theme . . . with buttons as the a twist.
Thanks so much for stopping by
. . . hope to see you again!!!
