Honey Bee Card

Hello, and welcome to the first instalment of my Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Stamp Set Showcase. This is a brand new stamp set, featured in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue (see page 30). It is available as a bundle so you can save 10% if you purchase the stamp set and coordinating dies together. And it gets even better because if you spend £45 during the Sale-A-Bration promotion (3rd Jan – 31st Mar 2020) you’ll be eligible to receive the coordinating Golden Honey Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP) for FREE!

The Honey Bee stamp set features two bee images, two flowers, a bee hive and 5 sentiments. The coordinating Detailed Bee dies cut out all of the main images as well as a honeycomb, hearts and an extra detailed bee. They might even cut out images from the DSP (wink, wink).

The first project I’d like to share with you is a quick and simple card.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Daffodil Delight cardstock and I have stamped the smaller bee image directly onto the card base in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I have stamped the image multiple times and at various different angles to create a background. The 2.25″ circle punch is used to cut out a circle from Basic Black cardstock and this is adhered to the card front. Next I have cut out the honeycomb from Gold Foil Sheets and adhered this to the Basic Black circle. I found it easiest to use a small strip of Tear & Tape to secure the honeycomb where it would be hidden by the sentiment piece.

The sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then trimmed to size. This has been adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally, I have stamped the larger bee image onto Daffodil Delight cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This is adhered to the sentiment piece again using dimensionals.

I hope you agree that despite being quick and simple, this card is really effective. The sentiment is beautiful and would brighten anyone’s day and the gold foil adds that little bit of shine.
