Welcome to this month’s Stamper’s Dozen Blog Hop! This month kicks off our new January- June Mini Catalog and also our biggest sale of the year – Saleabration!
No surprise to anyone that my favorite product in the new catalog is the Honey Bee Bundle and the coordinating Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper that is free with a $50 product purchase!
My project today was inspired by one shared by Stampin’ Up’s CEO, Sara Douglass. She had shared her sampler at Onstage Live in November – and I fell in love with it – I just tweaked it a bit and made it a smaller size – 8″ x 8″.
Here’s a close up:
I stamped the bee hive and three bees and cut them out with the coordinating dies. The “sweet friend” is part of one of the word stamps in the set – I used a black Stampin’ Write marker and just inked up the words I wanted to stamp. I stamped onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and snipped the words apart with my Paper Snips.
I dressed up my bees with some Metallic Pearls -and added a small bow of White Baker’s Twine.
The Golden Honey designer paper is just cut to different sizes:
center square is 2 3/4″
the four corners are all 2″ square
the smallest squares are 1″
two of the rectangles measure 2 1/2″ x 1″
two of the rectangles measured 2 3/4″ x 3/4″
I used Gold Foil for two of the squares and embossed them with the new Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder. I love that it looks like a Bee Skep!
