Good morning! It. Is. FRIDAY!! Whoo-hoo!!
AND – all my catalogs are stickered and stuffed and sent! Double Whooo-hooo!! 🙂
I’ve got a cute little 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog and 2020 Sale-A-Bration Flyer sneak peek for you today. This set is one I wanted the INSTANT I saw it in the catalog – it’s the Honey Bee Bundle – with the Detailed Bee Dies. AND – there’s awesome Golden Honey Bee Specialty DSP in the Sale-A-Bration flyer – which means…FREE DESIGNER SERIES PAPER!! Yikes!! Take a look-see:
The layout – and a few elements (if you look close, you’ll see what I mean!) in this one – are from this week’s FUSION challenge.
And the color scheme is from the Color Throwdown challenge.
I started with some of the beautiful gold-foil-accented Golden Honey Specialty DSP that I matted on Bermuda Bay for the card front.
On a smaller rectangle of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the curved sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set (coming on 4 Jan 20!) in Bermuda Bay. Then I cut out the beehive shape, using the die in the bundled Detailed Bee Die Set.
I used the honeycomb die from the set and cut a couple from a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper.
I used a piece of Daffodil Delight paper from the new Birthday Bonanza DSP (also coming on 4 Jan 20!) behind the beehive. I adhered the Gold Glimmer honeycomb with Liquid Glue. Then I adhered the Whisper White panel over top with more Liquid Glue.
On scrap Whisper White, I stamped the large bee and two small bees in Tuxedo Black -and cut them out with their matching die from the Detailed Bee Die set.
Yes – you heard me. Dies. That. Cut. Bees.
Whaaaaa!??! How AWESOME is that?!? 🙂
Answer: VERY freakin’ awesome!
I colored their bodies with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker and the wings with my Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend. I brushed Clear Wink of Stella over the wings, too.
I used the marker-to-rubber technique to color the two flower images – Pear Pizzazz for the stems and leaves and Daffodil Delight for the flowers. This technique is made SO much easier with the Stamparatus – it means you can stamp over the image as many times as you need! I cut the flowers with their matching dies. And some Gold Glimmer hearts, too!
I adhered the flowers and hearts and the right-most little bee with Liquid Glue. Then I added the second small bee and the large guy with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Pear Pizzazz “faux stitches” with my Stampin’ Write Marker and the card was done!
On the inside, I added a stamped-off-once Daffodil Delight beehive from the Honey Bee set in the center of a Whisper White panel. Over top, I added a second sentiment in Bermuda Bay. Then I added a single flower – once again using the marker-to-rubber technique.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and into my Pear Pizzazz card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full-strength Daffodil Delight beehive on the front – plus a couple of little Tuxedo Black bees…
…and some more of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! You guys – I was TOTALLY right to covet this set when I saw it! The Honey Bee stamp set is adorable – and the bundled Detailed Bee Dies cut. Out. BEES! Like…bee-legs. And bee-antenna. NO fussy cutting! Whoo-hoo!! Add in the Golden Honey Specialty DSP (that you’ll be able to pick up for free during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order before shipping and tax! I hope you LIKE – add this one to your Wish List as soon as your catalog arrives. It’s on page 30. Just sayin’! 😉
