Buzzin' By

I finally got time to sit with my new Buzzin' By stamp set! It's been sitting on my craft table just calling out to me and I've had to keep saying "I haven't forgotten you....I'll get to you soon" I really felt like I was a bad stamp parent, lol.

Anyway, I had this retired designer paper that looked just like honey comb! And it went along with the color that I wanted to use, so voila!

This card has lots of dimension. I even dug out my Stamp-A-Majig for this one. Since my flowers and bees went beyond just one layer, I had to Majig it to make sure that it would all line up. I didn't wan their little legs to be all crooked :)

I saw that someone else had cut out the door to the hive on their card so I did that too, it looks like our little bee friends could really fly inside.

I used gold Stickles on the flowers and black Stickles on the bees antennae. Their wings have Dazzling Diamonds while the hive and the flowers are embossed with clear EP. I had just purchased these large colorful Primas, so they were used here too!! This card was a lot of fun!!

Set: Just Buzzin' By (SU)
Accessories: More Mustard & Whisper White cardstock, Garden Green Textured cardstock, Designer Paper, Primas, Stickles, Scallop Edge Punch, Clear EP, Water Color Crayons w/Blender Pens, Dazzling Diamonds.

You popped up those bees, right? It's a great look!
