This week’s Global Design challenge is a sketch, which is always fun. I’m in Valentine-making mode, so the cute bees from the Bee Mine Designer Paper flew onto my card. Yes, I fussy cut them first, and placed them on Dimensionals.

The bee’s background developed from the sketch, with Basic White Cardstock, and Bee Mine Designer Paper, cut with the second largest Deckled Rectangles Die. I glued the designer paper, on an angle, to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

“You Make My Heart Buzz”


Before gluing the Basic White cardstock, I gave it texture with the Layered Flowers Embossing Folder. This made the bees very happy.

The last piece of the sketch was cut from yellow plaid, Bee Mine DSP, cut with the smallest Deckled Rectangles Die. 


The sentiment, “you make my heart buzz,” is from the Be My Valentine Stamp Set. I stamped it in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and used an Adoring Hearts Die for cutting. Before attaching the heart, I gave it a touch of color with Petal Pink Ink and a Blending Brush.


 See how our designers used the sketch, then create your own design, and hang it in our gallery.
