Stampin’ Up! Hello Honey Bee for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.

Here is my card using the colors. I’ll admit, I had to think for a moment what to make.

My card played along with the ‘Just Us Girls’ Challenge #521.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper, (Free Sale-A-Bration item), to a Whisper White card front using Snail. Using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker, I colored a piece of the 3/8″ Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon.  Once it was dry, I wrapped it around the card front.  With a smaller piece of the colored ribbon I tied a small bow and adhered it to the top of the ribbon using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the largest Stitched Nested Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Detailed Bees Dies, I cut a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP using the bee hive die.  I cut out 2 honey combs from a Gold Foil Sheet using the Detailed Bees Dies.  I adhered the honey combs to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the bee hive on top of the honey comb using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few of the ‘honey’ pieces to the honey comb using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 2 of the small bees from the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the bees out using the Detailed Bees Dies.  I colored the stripes on the bees in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers and I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the bees wings.  I adhered the bees to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I cut another one of the bee hives using the Detailed Bees Dies and the Golden Honey Specialty DSP.  I adhered the bee hive to the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the bee hive.  I stamped 2 more bees of the small bees from the Honey Bee stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the bees out using the Detailed Bees Dies.  I colored the bees stripes in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the bees wings..  I adhered the bees to the bee hive using Glue Dots.  I adhered the Whisper  White panel to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small bee image from the Honey Bee stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the bees stripes using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.
