Lovely Bees

Who doesn’t love bees? (well not right in my face) But they are soooo beneficial for the environment, pollination, honey, and defying physics! I love the colors of black, white, yellow, and gold together!!

We had our Team Gathering last month. I have always wanted to do a Card Gut challenge! We all got the same sized pieces of cardstock and DSP in an envelope. We all were allowed to add extra colored paper, embellishments, and stamps. We just couldn’t alter the paper included in the card guts! I posted three of our team’s cards on this post!

During Sale-a-bration, one of the FREE items choices is the Golden Honey Specialty DSP! I LOVE THIS PAPER! Playful and yet elegant patterns of black, white, and gold to make your projects gorgeous! And since it specialty paper, it’s thicker and metallic!

I started with the card guts: Thick Whisper White cardstock, Golden Honey DSP, Basic Black. I ran the Basic Black through the die cutting machine with the Hammered Metal 3-D folder. I wanted a pop of yellow, so I added a mat piece of Daffodil Delight. I ran a piece of Gold Foil through the die cutting machine with the hive die for a fun accent.

To create the bees I stamped with Versa Mark and then heat embossed with the Shimmer Black embossing powder! Have you tried it yet? It made the bees so fun and whimsical! I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the sentiment!

Now to show you the team’s creations!

Connie’s Creation using blends, gold foil, and gold edged trim ribbon
Kathy used a sponge technique to color the card base. The bees and bike were colored too!
Kelli used gold foil and the bee dies.

I hope you enjoyed the card cards we all made from the same pieces! Be sure to check out all the great new products in the Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration freebies! Laura’s Stampin Up! website.
