Sweet Bee Mother's Day - Stampin' Up! Honey Bee

  Still cleaning out the "cards to be uploaded" folder!  Only a little bit of time left to order out of the Mini Catalog so if you've had your eye on this Honey Bee bundle now is the time to order it!  We've been seeing bees of all sorts buzzing around the yard now that there are lots of flowers blooming.  Aggie being the goofy lab she is keeps trying to stalk them and bite at them as they buzz past her head.  She's going to get a big surprise if she catches one!!

  I've enjoyed stamping with the Honey Bee stamp set and Detailed Bees dies over the past 5 months.  It's a cute set and works really well as an all purpose set for lots of occasions.  I would certainly use Honey Bee as I would a lot of my flower sets.

  This card starts with a Whisper White base, then a layer of Peaceful Poppies DSP.  I stamped the hive in Daffodil Delight and popped it up over a piece of black ribbon and 2 diecut flowers.  The flowers are colored with markers; Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz.  Looking at the photo now I should have used a darker blue so the blossoms would show up better.  Oh well!

  The bee is stamped in Memento black and colored in lightly with the light Daffodil Delight Blends marker.  It's also popped on dimensionals.

  I stamped the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings right below the hive.  To jazz up the card front a bit I added small adhesive pearls to the bottom of the hive as well as a few sequin/pearl combos around the hive.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
