Hello IBFS fans !!
It's Crystal here with a cute Hello card using a Shy Bear from the #6 collection from I Brake For Stamps Store

I did not have a die to cut a small bee so I hand cut one on my own , cut a black base for my bee , vellum  for the wings and yellow for the bee stripes

I Brake for Shy Bears in Spring ....

Hello I Brake For Stamps Friends !!
It's Crystal here with another Easter card and today I am using a Shy Bear from the  # 6 collection .These bears are so cute and fun to stamp up and color , today I copic colored the front image  and on the inside I colored the stamp with markers  to show another way to color them .

to make my butterflies I cut a layer of wax paper and card stock together , this help the die release the cut and instead of throwing the wax paper away I glitter up this layer and it adds awesome wow to your project ( I learned this technique at the CK show I attended ) this glue was bought at the show but as a sub you can use glossy accents , this bottle has a brush tip to apply , you can apply glossy with a brush just rinse out right away.
