Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun. It was a gloomy one here in NJ.
Today’s card I played with one of my favorite sets from the new January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I used it last Wednesday for my live and I think I had mentioned that I wasn’t sure I was going to like it alot. I do and I’ve been playing with it a lot. Here’s my card for today.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set, Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper and Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.
I started by adhering a panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Subtle DSP to the card front on an angle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 2nd largest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I embossed the panel using the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. Using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and the flicking technique, I added black ink on the embossed panel.
I stamped the flower and small bee images from the Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images using the Queen Bee Dies. I colored the flowers only using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using the Queen Bee Dies, I cut the hives from a panel of Basic Black cardstock and the leaves and flowers from a panel of So Saffron cardstock. I adhered the floral image and small bee to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiments from the Queen Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Queen Bee Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the embossed panel overlapping the flowers a little using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the die cut leaves under the sentiment using Glue Dots. I adhered the hives around the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Classic Matte Dots to the flower centers. I tied a small bow using the Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the floral and bee images from the Queen Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I randomly stamped the newsprint image from the Queen Bee stamp set in So Saffron Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a So Saffron mat then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.
To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral and bee images from the Queen Bee stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Happy Stamping, Karen
In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well. I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.
Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater. And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!
But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:
- You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly! OR….
- If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.
