Sweet as Honey

Hello lovelies! I hope you are all feeling well?

I have a sweet little project to share with you today, in fact I have two! These were some of the cards we made in my last class...Cards & Cake (even though I actually made Lemon Melting Moments for morning tea!)

I will be honest, it took me a little while to warm up to these bees...or perhaps, I had my eyes focussed on other favourites in the Mini 2020 Catalogue. Either way, I am now really loving this bundle and can see more creations coming!

Here you can see a close up of the gold foiling details on the bee, this was cut out from the FREE Honey Bee DSP (earned with $90 sale). The dies that come with the Honey Bee Bundle work with the stamps and this DSP, so I was thrilled!

The only stamping I did was Crushed Curry for the hive and the sentiment. The Rhinestones were coloured in with a black Sharpie (Blends work too).

I used Copper Thread as I didn't have any gold left, but I think it works fine.

The black DSP was cut out with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies - these are getting a good workout lately!

This is the Honey Bee Bundle, I am yet to play with the flowers, but can see some great ideas in my head!

The Honey Bee DSP is really pretty with the Gold Foiling. There are many ways you can use this paper even if you are not a Bee fan!

My second card is a little more involved. The honey comb was cut out with Gold Foil and I saved some of the 'dimensional shapes' as extra embellishments on the card. (Mounting them all on Dimensionals of course!)

The bees were stamped with Basic Grey, (my new Black!) and coloured in with Daffodil Delight Light and Rococo Rose Dark Stampin’ Blends Marker. The coordinating Die cut out the bees.

The arching sentiment was stamped and fussy cut.

The ribbon I used was the Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

I coloured the whole piece of Honey Bee DSP with a Dauber and Rococo Rose ink. Then I covered the back of the DSP with lots of Dimentionals and stuck it to a piece of Rococo Rose Cardstock.

The paper flower was from my craft stash.

So there you have it! Two very different cards from the same bundle!
