Delicate Bees - Stampin' Up! Honey Bee

  I've often said that I get inspired for stamping in lots of ways; shopping at Target, peoples clothes in church and fabric.  Over Christmas I took my mom around to several of the quilt stores that she likes to check out when she visits.  Sewing is beyond me but I always find fabric with lovely color combinations that I can translate into card making.  My card today was inspired by a fun fabric print I saw in one of the shops.  I thought the Honey Bee bundle would be perfect for these colors.

  This card is mostly dies with just the 'hello' sentiment being stamped.

  The card base is Basic Black.  Then a slightly smaller panel of Pool Party embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.  I used some retired adhesive sheets to cut a few honeycomb sections.  I placed them on the background panel and then added some clusters of the die cut hexagon shapes.  Using the adhesive sheet makes it really easy and I would suggest it for the least amount of frustration in adhering the delicate honeycomb shape.

  Next I cut 4 bees in my colors: Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Basic Black, Rococo Rose.  They are popped with little bits of trimmed down dimensionals.

  The sentiment is stamped in black on Whisper White and cut out with the smallest die in the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  It's also popped up with a From My Heart faceted gem.  A bit of crinkled seam binding ribbon finishes off this card.

  Now here is the inspiration fabric.  Isn't it cute??  I think Stampin' Up! needs a swim suit stamp set!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
