For my first card, I actually got the idea of putting the bee on top of the honey pot from a card I saw on Splitcoaststampers. But the rest of the card, is all my own idea. The card stock colors are 'Barely Banana', 'Bashful Blue', and 'More Mustard'. I put Crystal Effects on the Honey Pot and all the bees on all the cards have stickles on their wings. The flower is stamped, cut out, and popped up with dimensionals. Ribbon is Stampin Up! 'More Mustard' and American Crafts.
For my second card, I used a layout I also saw on SCS, but I changed the papers. The papers I used are Stampin Up! 'Barely Banana', 'Brocade Blue', 'More Mustard' and 'Bashful Blue' Designer Paper. One of the bees is cut out and popped up on dimensionals.
My third card is entirely my original idea. I used the retired Stampin Up! Wheel 'Hollyhock' to create a background behind my bee hive and on the card. I cut out the bee hive and bee and mounted them up on dimensionals, along with the main image panel. Card stock colors are 'Certainly Celery', 'Pretty in Pink', and 'Barely Banana'. Ribbon is Offray.
For this card I used Stampin Up! Designer Paper 'Bashful Blue' for my background. The scalloped edge was created with the Stampin Up! punch. The main image panel is mounted up on dimensionals. Clips, brads, and ribbon were added for embellishment.
My final card uses designer paper from Magnolia and Stampin Up! Cardstock colors 'Wild Wasabi', 'More Mustard', and 'Bordering Blue'. Stampin up ribbon was added for embellishment. The main image panel was mounted up on dimensionals.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing all my 'bee cards' and that it brought some warm, sunny thoughts to those that are still dealing with snow and cold (like me). The craft store I work at officially opened in Eau Claire today. All the team members are so nervous about working on the cashier or cutting table, PRAY FOR US! LOL! I don't work today, but I do work tomorrow and Saturday, so I'll definitely need your prayers! There is just so much to remember and everyone is afraid of doing something wrong.
God bless you all! Amy
