Stampin' Up! Honeybee Home ~ Sneak Peek!


Hey there!  Welcome to my blog.  Have you seen Stampin' Up!'s new Honeybee Home stamp set yet?  This card is just a sample of the greatness that this set includes!  It is a floral set that includes three bees and some fantastic sentiments.  Plus, there's a coordinating die set and beautiful designer series paper.  

This sweet sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge inspired today's card.  Check out their blog here, so you can play along with this week's challenge. 

Card Base ~ Basic Gray Cardstock ~ 8-1/2 x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Coastal Cabana Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Layer 2 ~ Heart & Home Designer Series Paper ~ 1-3/4" x 3-3/4" (*2) and 1-1/4" x 3-3/4"
Layer 3 ~ Basic Gray Cardstock ~ 1-3/4" x 3-1/4"
Layer 4 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 1-1/2" x 3"
Scraps of Basic White Cardstock
Inside Layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"

  • Stamp the flowers  and the bee with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on scraps of Basic white Cardstock.  I used the Stamparatus so I could stamp each image (and sentiment) two to three times to get a nice, dark image. 
  • Use Blender Pens with ink pads to color the bee and flowers. 
  • Stamp the sentiment on the smallest piece of DSP, almost all the way to the right edge. 
  • Assemble Layers 1-4 on the Card Base with Liquid Glue, as shown. If needed, trim the bottom of the flower stem along the edge of Layer 4 with Paper Snips. 
  • Attach the bee with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Stamp the bee in the center of the Inside Layer with Mango Melody Ink.  Then, adhere the Inside Layer to the inside of the card. 

I hope this card inspires you to get creative.  Thanks for visiting my blog!
Let me know if you live in the USA, don't have a demonstrator and would like a copy of the new catalog.  I will be glad to send you one!
