Here's another look at all five stamp sets:
And here's my cards:
I couldn't resist building another little scene with the fun Bees Knees stamp set. I paired it up with the In The Clouds stencil and some blooms from Plant A Garden. After I'd coloured up the toadstools I added the hilly background and then quite a bit of masking went on to get the depth of look I wanted with the blooms behind the toadstools.
All three bees have a layer of Wink of Stella on their wings and glossy accents on their chubby bodies and are popped up onto foam pads.
Stamps: Funky Fossil, Bees Knees, Plant A Garden
Stencil: Funky Fossil, In The Clouds
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black, summer sky
Colours: Copic, E50, E55, E57 G21, YR04, YR15, BG01, R20, R29; Miya oil pencils

Next up in complete contrast to the cutesie bees if the more realistic Bee Geometric bee.
The bees were stamped coloured and hand cut, popped up onto pads and the wings given a shimmery coat of Wink of Stella. I also added a bit of extra colour to the hexagon pattern.

Colours: Copic, C3, C5, YR04, RV00, E50; Miya oil pencils

The adorable doggie Furry Friends and a get well theme feature on my next card.
I paper pieced the dog onto spotty paper and tilted him at an angle - he is poorly after all. The feeling ruff sentiment is a perfect play on words for this genre of card.
Stamps – Funky Fossil, Furry Friends
Ink: Versafine Clair, nocturne
Die: MFT Die-namics, double stitched rectangles
Paper: Lawn Fawn, pint-sized patterns
My last sample card today uses a background I created while I had the brushos out.
I sprinkled them onto a long thin acrylic block, spritzed them with water and placed the card on top to create the horizontal strip. I then stamped the In The Meadow grass and sentiment on top.
