Hello everyone. It is time for another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me. This time we have a theme called Bugs, Bees or Butterflies. I am sure it is no surprise that I chose bees. I just love the stamp set called Honey Bee with the matching Detailed Bee Dies and the paper that you can get for FREE with a qualifying order called Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper!
I did something a little different with the bees this time (although you can’t see it in the photo). I stamped them in black in and then embossed them with clear embossing powder. It made the bees darker and very shiny. I thought they looked great with the Golf Foil Sheets. I tried to do a close up photo of them but it still did not show the shininess so you will have to take my word for it.
I stamped the sentiment in Black ink and then cut it out using the new Stitched So Sweetly Dies. Then I cut the same shape out of Basic Black cardstock and layered it behind the Whisper White to give it a little shadow. By the way, if you purchase the Honey Bee Stamp set and the Detailed Bees Dies (at a 10% discount) and you added the Stitched So Sweetly Die set, you could get the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper for FREE!
Now, let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy have made. This is my favorite part of our Stamp Off day!
Love,love this card. So cute.
I love this card Susan. It looks like the bees are authentically creating honey. You really used the elements to make it real.
Honey bees are GOOD bees! (not like horrible wasps – ugh!) I love the foil hive, & bee-lieve you that your bees are shiny 🙂
I do love honey bees! Your card is bee-youtiful. I love all the shininess, and the DSP is a perfect backdrop.
