Smell the Flowers!

Summertime is almost here! When I think of summer, I think of hot, humid days, gardens in bloom, and trying to eat outdoors without bees or mosquitoes making nuisances of themselves!  The Stampendous Design Team theme this week is "Have a Mice Summer!" These cute little Bumble Bunnies from House Mouse Designs, paired with the great Daisy Field Stamp fit the theme perfectly! It seems like they just want to stop and smell the flowers!

Step 5:  Stamp the Bumble Bunnies image on a 2 3/4" x 4 1/2" piece of white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, color with Copic Markers
Step 6: Measure up each side 7/8" and make a small pencil mark, cut straight across to the image and trim around the image above the pencil marks, cutting straight across on the other side of the image too
Step 7:  Cut a piece of Black Suede cardstock 1" x 4 5/8", adhere the black mat to bottom of the Bumble Bunnies, use foam squares to attach the bunnies to the Daisy Field
Step 8:  Use a small applicator to place small amounts of glue along the bottom edges of the two white layer and sprinkle with Hot Lime fragments, pat them down, shake off extra, let dry
