I’m very happy that I get to be day number one! Yahooooo. So happy to be here sharing a card with you today! Today I’m featuring three stamp sets: Build A Bee, Tea Time, and Bee-you-tiful Sentiments. I made a card that will be perfect to send some cheer to a friend’s mailbox!
I started with an A2 card base from Kraft Cardstock. Then I layered bright yellow, and then bright white! I added a piece of gingham paper from my stash to look like a napkin for my little scene. I love yellow – any time of year. Next I stamped the coffee cup, the cupcake, the lemon, and the bee and die cut them out with the matching dies. I colored the images with Copic Markers in cheery colors. See the steam coming off the coffee? That’s actually a die that is supposed to be a trail behind the bee! I thought it would look good this way!
After I colored in everything, I added shimmer by using a glue pen and some superfine glitter! The bee is on a wobble! So he is really buzzing by! The sentiments are so cool – you can mix and match any words you want and place them exactly where you want them. One of my go-to sentiment sets – I use it all the time.
If you haven’t tried Wobbles – you need to! They are so much fun! I used the Mini Wobbles for the beeeeee. It’s a little plastic coil that has adhesive on both ends. You attach one end to the object and the other end to the card. Then it wobbles! EEK! It lays perfectly flat for mailing.
Here it is in action! I can’t stop! LOL
I want to give a big thanks to Melissa, Lisa, and the entire Honey Bee team for inviting me to be part of the 12 Designers of Christmas! I’m such a fan of Honey Bee. Make sure to check back tomorrow for the next guest designer here on the Honey Bee Blog!
