If A Bear Giggles in the Forest...

Do bears giggle?

WELL I HOPE SO!!

Nina Aslund thinks they do anyway, and she is releasing her new Antidepresstamps line in our blog hop today! Ha - it makes me laugh every time I see it. Stamps ARE antidepressants.

If you want to start at the beginning of the hop, click here. One of the hoppers has a full set of Nina's images to give away to one of you, so you won't want to skip any!

This release at Starving Artistamps includes the Gigglebears, Birds and Bees. I worked with the birds and bees and I'm UBER stoked about having a honeycomb background stamp! I've only been waiting forever for an image like this. I <3 honey. And bees. As long as they play nice.

My first bee is crazy nice - he is giggling! I colored him and a strip of the honeycomb background with Copics. I glittered my happy bee's wings with Stickles™. For my next card, I used one of the birdies, and I made up my own species color, which apparently is a cross between a parakeet and a robin. :) I paired it with an October Afternoon Report Card and the new Stampin' Up! newsprint DSP. The ribbon is silk May Arts.
I have more fun projects with these images coming up, but now, it's time to get on with the hop! The next stop is Jenn!

Here's the full hop list in case you missed any.

  4. Beautiful cards! Little Miss said that you made a Lorikeet bird just like the ones that we feed at SeaWorld. So, your coloring is awesome because she identified it just like that!

  12. WOW! That honeycomb is simply FAB!! I did try to use it too, but I had no idea the result could be THAT great! Probably going to borrow your idea sometime (when I feel patient enough to color all of those small hexagons, hee hee).
    Both your cards are stunning - with AWESOME coloring and combination of decorations and papers! Thanks for the inspiration!
