Lily Bee Blog Hop

Welcome to the Lily Bee Blog Hop! If you’ve just started…great to see you! If you began hopping from the new Lily Bee blog, well, I’m sure you’re chock full of inspiration from some talented ladies and you are almost done. The Lily Bee blog is now at a new location so if you haven’t stopped by, make sure you bookmark it. Stop by as there are fun sneak peeks at the new summer releases. You are going to love them!

Today I have two Lily Bee cards to share with you from the Handmade line. It’s one of my favorite lines and I love the fresh colors and the quilting theme.

Handmade lends itself to a homespun look so I’ve gone that route with this card design. A handmade folded circle flower is the main embellishments and I’ve added in some freehand pen work to accent some of the layers.

Each flower consists of 6 circles. Five are 2.5″ in size and four of them are folded in quarters and then adhered to the fifth. The last circle is 1.5″ and becomes the flower center.

My second card features squares with folded corners. It creates a fun quilt block look. The paper and chipboard butterflies are die cut and then covered with Rock Candy Distress Stickles.

Back to the blog hop….
