Hey there, friends! Melissa B from Just Dandy Studio here with you on this Monday morning. Do you have the Color Me Alpha set in your Honey Bee Stamps collection? I just recently added this, along with the Color Me Alpha Honey Cuts, to my inventory and I’m so glad that I did. Today, I’m going to share a little something I created with both them.

There are so many different ways you could use these letters. I chose to create my own little saying to add to the front of my card and ‘You are just dandy’ seemed like the perfect sentiment. 🙂 I started with a piece of white cardstock and stamped all of my letters in crisp black ink. Next, using the flower bouquet, in Penny the Platypus, I stamped around and inside the letters. To color them in I used my Zig markers, but you could use any color medium you wanted…Copics, color pencils, watercolors etc. After they were all colored I die-cut them.

After my letters were all stamped, colored and cut, I set them aside and die-cut a white rectangle using the A2 Double Stitched Frames. This is my platform for my letters to sit on. I assembled them just perfectly onto the front and attached them with dimensional foam. Underneath a few of the letters I added a trio of leaves, from Penny the Platypus, that were stamped, colored and die-cut. Before attaching it to my aqua card base I attached a few pink and clear sequins and wrapped around a bit of white twine!

I’m really looking forward to playing a bit more with this alpha set and coming up with different sentiments!

Thank you for sharing part of your day with me. Have a happy Monday!
