You Are Bee-youtiful and Kind

Hello my crafty peeps! It’s Maria here and I am back with you today to share this cheerful see-through card that I have made, showcasing the Bee Hive Card Honey Cuts, Honey Bee Hive Stencil and Mask, the Bee-You-Tiful sentiments with the Build-A-Bee stamp set and Build-A-Bee Honey Cuts.

I wanted to challenge myself and create a unique card.  I started out by stamping my images on Bristol smooth card stock with my memento tuxedo black ink and colored the images in with my Copic markers. I also added some glitter to the wings using my Spectrum Noir clear brush marker.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.


I die-cut a piece of acetate sheet using the Bee-Hive Card Honey cuts die as my card base. I also die-cut a piece of white card stock with a yellow patterned paper to use for the inside of my card.


I used the stencil to add some definition to my yellow patterned paper with the fossilized Amber distress oxide ink. I adhered the white card stock behind the acetate and adhered the patterned paper inside my see-through card base. I stamped the sentiment for my card, and adhered my little bees on the front panel to finish my design.


Wouldn’t this card make someone’s day?  Here’s what it looks like when the card is closed.


Here’s another look when the flap is open.  I inserted the battery-operated tea light.



Here’s another simple card that I made. I used the Hexagon Layering Background Stencils and the A2 Double-Stitched Frames:

Hello Card with Honey Bee Stamps

I am super excited to share with you my first project as a design team member for Honey Bee Stamps.  I am showcasing the Hello Gorgeous 6×8 stamp set and Hello Gorgeous Honey Cuts coordinating dies.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored the images in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the image with its coordinating die.


I cut another Neenah solar white card stock, measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 for my card front.  Using a sponge, I started applying color to the card stock with my worn lipstick distress ink, then adding and blending it with cracked pistachio.  Using my wet watercolor brush, I put some gold watercolor on my acrylic block and started splattering watercolor on the front of the card.


I used a die from my stash and adhered the “hello” script sentiment on my card panel.


I adhered the flowers I colored from the Hello Gorgeous stamp set and also added some Crystal Mix Dew Drops to finish my design.  Here is a close-up of the card:


I hope you like my card today and got inspired.  This stamp set is a must-have.


The supplies I used are listed and linked below in case you would like to purchase them.  Have an amazing week!
