Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Hello

Good Wednesday morning from Disney World my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  We made it here safely and we’re out and running already.  Yesterday we had a pretty laid back day, only a little over 14,000 steps and 6 1/2 miles walked.  We’re heading over to Magic Kingdom today, so I’m sure there will be more miles covered.  My 24 year old son is so excited to go on the Buzz Light Year Space Ranger Spin (so he can beat all of us), Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion.  There’s something about Disney that brings the child back out of you.

I have an adorable card for you today, at least I think it is.  I used the new Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Bundle from page 30 of the new 2020 January-June Mini Catalog with the coordinating Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  I actually CASEd the card from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Snail.  Using the Detailed Bee Dies I cut the honeycomb out of a Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered some of the honey pieces to the card front using Glue Dots.

On a small strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped 3 large bees from the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the bees out using the Detailed Bee Dies.  I colored the stripes on the bees in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I went over the wings of the bees using my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  I adhered the honeycomb to a Very Vanilla panel, which I embossed using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the top and bottom bee to the panel using Glue Dots and the bee on the honeycomb using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a very thin strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the very vanilla panel using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added one of the honey pieces to the end of the strip using a Glue Dot.

I adhered a piece of 3/8″ Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon to the card front using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the bee hive from the Honey Bee stamp set in So Saffron Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the smaller bee image from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink next to the hive.  I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set above the hive in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the stripes on the bee in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the bees wings.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the large bee image from the Honey Bee stamp set twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the stripes on the bees in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker and the wings on the bee using my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  I adhered a panel of Golden Honey Specialty DSP to the envelope flap

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

  1. LOVE it! I’ll probably end up ordering the stamp set because I have the DSP. It’s so easy to walk over 6 miles at WDW…especially when you’re at Epcot for one of the festivals. Happy walking!
