Dandelion Day


Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Liz Williams our challenge hostess for the month, continues to issue the challenges.

National Dandelion Day - yesterday was Dandelion Day so show us your best dandelion cards (or use an flower as an alternate)

My first thought when I read this challenge, was that I didn't have any dandelion stamps or dies. But when I began to think about getting organised to do this challenge, I looked up and noticed a Honey Bee Stamps stamp set that was sitting in my box of stamps & dies waiting to be used. On closer inspection of the set, there was a cute mouse blowing a dandelion in the wind. So of course I had to get that stamp set out to play.

The stamp set is called Sweet Spring Mice and as it was a Honey Bee Stamps stamp set, I decided to pull out my Honey Bee Stamps Horizon Slimline Borders die set that contains dies to create grass, clouds and the fence. I stamped and die cut three of the mice images from the set to create my cute little scene.

For the inside of the card I used the same dies as I used on the front of the card to create my scene.

I used Karen Burniston's Street Lantern Pop-up die set to pop up the two mice.

I added the large birthday sentiment to the base of my card using the Miss You Big Time stamp set and coordinating dies.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
