Stampin Up Honeybee Home

I definitely have a love/hate relationship with bees.  I love bees because they pollinate the flowers and they are good for the environment, etc but I get stung by those critters a few times every summer.  We have a lot of clover in our yard.  They hide in the clover and when I walk in our yard they get into my sandals and sting me on the foot or toes and it hurts a lot but there is something about bees and stamping that makes me want to buy the sets.  They are just so darn cute!

I made this card for my friend, Char’s birthday.  She has a beautiful backyard with a pond and wildflowers so I thought it was fitting.  The stamp set I used is called Honeybee Home.  It has a set of coordinating dies called Honeybee Blooms (and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a bundle). The first thing I did was stamp all the flowers in Old Olive ink and color them using my Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends.  Next, I cut out the grass and other plants using Old Olive cardstock.  I layered them on a 4″ x 5.5″ piece of Basic White cardstock.  Next, I cut out the “mound” using the Basic Border Dies. I like how it adds the stitching along the top.  Then I cut out a 1/2″ piece of Basic White card stock and stamped the sentiment.  Lastly, I stamped the bees in Memento Black Ink and colored them using my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.
