This card is my next Sketch challenge for you. I am still a newbie in making sketches on Adobe, and I am having trouble, making this one because of the wavy line. 

 If you are interested in participating, add a link to your card as a comment to this post. I will raffle away some stamped images of my bees on Shimmery White as well as some matching May Arts ribbon. You have time until Monday morning at 9 a.m. to enter.

I am excited to see what Lori and Sharon will upload. Here is my bee card. It’s not only the card for our bee challenge, but also fit in perfectly for today’s limited supply challenge on SCS.

I started with stamping the Bee Daisy   (Follow the link!!! Eclectic paperie has 20 IN STOCK right now) on shimmery white Cardstock with Black palette ink. I colored the bee with classic inks and aqua painter. The colors I used were Apricot Appeal, Ruby Red, Close To Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow, True Thyme and Bordering Blue.  I layered the image on a Giga scallop circle punchout in True Thyme and set is aside.

The card base is Ruby Red cardstock. The next layer is Apricot Appeal. The dotted paper is from Scenic Route. I drew my wavy line on the back of the Scenic route paper before cutting it. I layered a piece of Ruby Red cardstock under it and cut it with my Decorative scissors. I added some May Arts ribbon and taped the top part on to the rest of the card.

After adhering my main image, I added a trail for the bee with black journaling marker and stamped Thankzzz from Stampin’ Up!’s Cute as a Bug set.

  1. Very Cute card Beate! I’ll try and play on Sunday when i’m stamping for my workshop Tuesday and the teacher gift for my sons teacher. :)

  2. AHHH I wish I had time to play..I am packing for a shoebox swap tomorrow. A few of us are going up early..to spend the night..and hang out..and then head out to the swap. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the card. We are going to have to play challenge here soon! I think it is too much fun! AND it would MAKE ME stamp. I need to get on board with the warm up cards..or something..I have been in a non stamping mood..maybe this weekend will kick me in the bottom and push me over the hump! I think I just needed down time from being so stressed out for the past month! Oh well..I love the card…hope you figuire out that adobe thing!

  15. What a cutie card! Today is kind of nuts for me, but if I have time, I’ll have to make one of these!

  16. I am in LOVE with these bee stamps, have to get them. Your card is great, as always. I will most definitely enter this challenge, love the bees.

  17. I love the sketch Beate and you card is ….. SO CUTE AND BEAUTIFUL!

  18. This is gorgeous! I’m making my wavy line now so that it is easier to cut out. I find the easiest way to make a wavy line is to create an oval using preset shapes. I make 2, connect them and then erase the rest of the ovals. I can’t make a wavy vector line for the life of me. Off to make a card!

  19. Love those bees! I keep seeing them and your link finally did it. When I checked the other day they were out, no one had them locally so I figured I wouldn’t get any. I’ve already placed my order so I hope they hurry!! You always do a great job of enabling! (and I mean that with the greatest respect)

    This was fun! I forced myself to make a wavy line template and made sure I saved it for the next time. Do the scallops look familiar? I’ve been hoarding your blog candy. LOL!

  24. LOVE your little bee, B, LOL! When you mentioned the LSC today, I had to take a look and use him, too! Thanks so much for the idea. Oops, I just remembered about the doodling (I didn’t do) . . . oh, well!

    Great sketch — I’ll have to try that! Love the red and scallops!

  25. Bee-ate (I love how Sharon put it), you are just so uber-duber talented!!!! I love what you’ve created with these bees!!!!

  63. Beate,

    I haven’t had much time to browse any blogs lately, but I can say that yours was the 1st blog I hit. I’m absolutely in love with your artwork, and so wish I could be you when I grow up LOL. The bee stamps that have you been using are just to die for. Thanks for always sharing such amazing artwork, I look forward to seeing what you come up with everyday.
