Foxgloves and Bees.....

Hello everyone: The new theme over at the SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge blog is "BUGS, BUGS, BUGS", any kind of bug will do. Here is my card and I hope it inspire you to play along.

This image is from my Power Poppy stash of stamp sets and it's called "Dynamic Duos: Foxglove and Ranunculus, it was released as a stamp set back in June of 2016.  I pounced on it immediately.
I stamped the image on a die cut piece of watercolor paper with Stazon black ink, colored it with Sakura Koi watercolors an added a few Rhine Stones.  I then die cut a piece of white card stock with the Spellbinders die set called Floral Ovals to frame the pretty flowers.
I just love the little bees around the blooms.
The pattern paper was given to me by my granddaughter Vanessa a couple of years ago.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The image and sentiment are from the same Power Poppy set. I lightly colored the image with Prismacolor pencils.

So I hope you stop by the SHOPPING OUR STASH blog and check out the rest of the teams' projects and then come and join us in the gallery.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.


  1. It's hard to believe this stamp set is two years old already. It's one of my favorites from Power Poppy. How many times do I say that? I love so many of them! So beautiful with your watercoloring on the front and Prismas inside. I love how you turned the Floral Ovals die into a frame. Inside is so soft and delicate. Just lovely!
