Hi there, Honey Bee friends! It’s Melissa Bickford here and I’m so excited to be back as a guest designer for Honey Bee Stamps 2nd Birthday Celebration. The peeks so far have been amazing, haven’t they? Today, I’m sharing a card using the new goodies that were sneaked this morning, ‘Busy Bees’ and ‘Buzz Word: Happy‘. I am so completely in love with these two new products!

I went for a cheerful color combination to create my card for you today.  ‘Busy Bee’ is such a happy set … it certainly calls for happy colors. I started by die-cutting my sentiment using the new ‘Buzz Word: Happy‘ die. I cut a wide strip of turquoise card-stock and after die-cutting, used the negative word as my main image. I added ‘birthday to you’, from the ‘Happiness‘ stamp set and then moved onto die-cutting the flowers, leaves and bees, from ‘Busy Bee’.

After assembling all of my pieces, I added a few Clear Dew Drops and Diamonds to the centers of my flowers and around the rest of my card.


I can’t wait until you can see these new products in full. I know you are going to love them as much as I do! There are still a few more days left in the birthday celebration and trust me, you are not going to want to miss any of it!

Thanks for visiting with us today!

    This is such a happy color combination, Melissa! Perfect for a birthday celebration! I love how you used the negative of the die for the main sentiment as it really pops with the turquoise panel.
