CCC #40... sunflower thanks

Helloooo friends!!   Its Tuesday and that means time for a brand new CASology cue "word" and this challenge will really have you putting on your thinking caps because the cue word is "word"!  You can find all the challenge details here.  Our guest designer this week is the very talented Karen!!!




For my card this week I decided to use a stamp that combines letters and images to make up the word.   I thought this would be a good way to show how perfect a stamp like this is for a clean and simple design.  Since it has images incorporated into the design of the word you don't have to add any other type of embellishment to the card, thus keeping it clean and simple.  This particular stamp is from Taylored Expression.  The image was stamped using Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with Copic markers.  I added some Diamond Stickles to the bee's wings and used a Sakura Gelly Roll pen to add a bit of shimmer to the bee's little trail.   Some yellow cardstock was embossed using a LifeStyle Crafts honeycomb embossing folder and used as a mat for the stamped piece.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!!

Thanks for stopping by... I cannot wait to see what up related ideas all you super talented papercrafters come up with for this challenge!! In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth, Judy, Maureen, and Meghan and our guest designer, Karen!!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & Lemon Tart; Stamps:  Taylored Expressions; Ink:  Memento; Ranger Diamond Stickles; Sakura Gelly Roll pen; LifeStyle Crafts embossing folder; Copic markers
