Bumble Bee-Bugs N’ Hugs Card Details Post

Good morning crafty friends,
Here is the details on the Bumble Bee-Bugs n’ Hugs card I created for today’s Garden Soup Cartridge showcase.

bee bugs hugs card 500
Products Used

DCWV Stack-Fresh Floral Stack
Garden Soup Cricut Cartridge
EK Success Mini Butterfly Punch
EK Success Border Punch
Yellow Cardstock
Black Fine Tip Pen


The cute little bumble bee paper piecing was created using all cuts from the Garden Soup cartridge. I did not use my Gypsy or Craft Room. All the cuts are what I like to call “straight cricut” meaning I used just the cartridge and my Expression. 

I stamped the cute little grass and flower border from the Bugs & Hugs Stamp set in Pear Ink on plain white cardstock. I then used my watercolor pencils to color in the flowers, mushrooms and back.The colors I used were: Orange, Sunflower, Citrus Leaf, Holiday Red and Bubblegum. 

I used one of the In the Backyard background stamps to stamp the pretty little pattern on the bumble bee's wings. I am entering this card in the Heart 2 Heart Go Green-March Madness challenge. Be sure to head over to the cartridge showcase and check out all the other wonderful projects created with the Garden Soup cartridge.
