Buzz and Bumble Cards

At first I wasn't sure I would like this paper Buzz and Bumble, but let me tell you -- it has quickly become one of my FAVORITES! Seeing our papers in "real life" is SO much better than looking at a photo in a book or online. This paper has such rich and elegant color with a variety of patterns to work with for a variety of looks!

Our Brown and Tan Glitter papers are a PERFECT pairing with this paper! I've also used the coordinating Buzz and Bumble Assortment (wooden flowers and bees and wax seals) and some of our Brown and Tan Sparkles, as well as both our Art Philosophy and Artiste Cricut cartridges. Let me show you some of the cards we will be making at my Cross Lanes Club this month:

First off, we are decorating one of our new Kraft Containers and adorning it with a matching gift tag! The gift tag is fashioned after one that Lisa Stenz made. (She is so amazing!) Love the glitter paper around the lid and on the tag! I'll also show you how to color our Color Ready Ribbon with any of our inks to coordinate with your project!

This next card uses an adorable stamp called Quick Cards - Bumble Bee. The Quick-Cards stamps make your cardmaking, well,.......QUICK! With one stamp you have a card!

I used our Cocoa Embossing powder for the stamp, then colored in the bee with a Creme Brulee marker, then added a little Stardust Glitz Glitter gel to the wings!

Inside the card you will find one of our cool wax seals designed to coordinate with this paper pack!

Up next is a very simple card also featuring one of our wax seals along with a wooden bee and some tan glitter paper!

Here is a card where I used one of the paper's zip strips for the sentiment!
Based on the sentiment, I HAD to use a sun burst out of our glitter papers to go with this card!

For this little card, I used the inside circle from the sunburst (above) to create a sparkly mat for this sentiment. I also used some of our Color Ready Ribbon inked with Champagne ink, a smidge of Sunset ink and a hint of Chocolate ink! I LOVE how you can make this ribbon ANY color you want!

Here is a card where I embossed the sentiment frame with our Cocoa Embossing Powder, but used the rock 'n roll technique to stamp the "heartfelt wishes". I simply inked up my sentiment in Sunset, then rocked the stamp on the bottom and top edges with Cocoa ink.

I included a wooden flower from the Buzz and Bumble Assortment set and a sparkle from our Brown and Tan Sparkle assortment.

Here is a card that features a bit of our hemp Baker's Twine (found in the Wooden Mini-Medley), very rustic looking, and another wax seal!

 On the inside of the card I added a wooden flower from the Buzz and Bumble assortment.

THIS little treasure is called a Tri-Shutter card! I got the idea from fellow CTMH Consultant Janene Wawro!

Here it is flat....

And here it is standing open:
 Everyone attending the club will learn how to make this fun card that you can adapt to any paper or occasion over and over again!

There may be one more "surprise" card if I have time. I just wanted to get these posted without further delay!
