Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Sneak Peek with Biggest Wish Thanks

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day – and happy Thanksgiving Eve!  Are you ready?  Today is cooking day – at least at my house.  My pressure cooker is going to be a-steaming away!

I’ve got a cool card – with a sneak peek of a bundle from the new Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog – going live to you on 4 Jan 2022!  The Honeybee Home Bundle is one I was anxiously awaiting – and now…it’s all sticker-mounted and inked up!  I also borrowed a sentiment from the Biggest Wish set – available now in the Annual Catalog.  And…gorgeous Heart & Home DSP plays a major role.  Take a look-see:


I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps for the layout.

And – many elements are thanks to the inspiration from the As You See It challenge.

I started by adhering a piece of new Heart & Home DSP to an Early Espresso mat for the card front.

I cut a piece of Bumble Bee cardstock with a Stitched Rectangle Die, then embossed it in the new Hive 3D Embossing Folder (coming on 4 Jan in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog).  I adhered the die cut to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I matted some gray woodgrain paper from Heart & Home DSP on Early Espresso and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere a new Basic Gray Heart & Home Doily (coming in the new catalog on 4 Jan – and the pack has Cinnamon Cider, Basic Gray and Misty Moonlight doilies!)

I used the grass and flowers dies in the Honeybee Blooms Dies (bundled with Bumble Bee Home) to cut two from Bumble Bee and one from Cinnamon Cider cardstock.  These are adhered to the gray doily with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the sentiment from Biggest Wish in Bumble Bee ink.  Over it, I stamped a grasses image from Honeybee Home in stamped-off-once Cinnamon Cider.  Then I cut it with a Layering Circles Die and popped it onto the doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped a few little bee images from Honeybee Home in Basic Gray ink on Basic White and cut them with their matching dies in the Honeybee Blooms Dies.  I colored them with my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.

Then I adhered the bees with Liquid Glue (the bottom bee has a Dimensional under his little bee-butt).

I tied a Linen Thread Double loop bow…

a. Wrap the Linen Thread around four fingers four times.
b. Without cutting the thread, wrap around two fingers four times.
c. Pull the loops off and squeeze the loops together.
d. Twist the loops one time around to create a “figure 8”.
e. Tie a second short length of Thread around the loops in the middle.
f. Spread the loops out to create a bow

…and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  To finish off, I added some Cinnamon Cider 2020-2021 In Color Squares and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a sweet sentiment from Honeybee Home in Bumble Bee ink on a Basic White panel.  In the corner I used Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider to stamp some Honeybee Home florals.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to an Early Espresso mat and into my Cinnamon Cider card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the Honeybee Home florals on the front…

…and more Heart & Home DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously!?  The Honeybee Home stamp set and bundled Honeybee Flowers Die set is part of the Heart & Home Suite and…I love it SOOO much!  I mean…look at the font on those sentiments!

Combine it with the Heart & Home DSP and…think of what you can make!

I hope you like!

  9. Kathy Kilgus

    Is the woodgrain dsp measurement correct? It seems a bit bigger than the one on your card.

    • stampsnlingers

      Hey Kathy – I am pretty sure it’s right – but…I also don’t have the card any more to double check. If that measurement doesn’t like right when you go to put it on the card, just trim it down till it works for you! 🙂 Thanks so much! 🙂
