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!
