Have a Bee-autiful Day

Hello again and welcome, it’s Karen here today. I’ve got a card today that’s fun for summer. I’ve used the “Happy Bee-Day” stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs for this one and kept it quite simple. 


I stamped the images with copic friendly ink onto some Neenah Solar Crest cardstock and then coloured them in with copic markers. I wanted the bee to hold the poppy, so I used a baby wipe to carefully remove the ink from the sign he was holding, before stamping the image. After colouring, I fussy cut the images out and also cut the lower part of the bees’ hand so he could hold the poppy  

Next, I used a honeycomb stencil and some Distress Oxide ink in Wild Honey to create the background as well as the sentiment strip.  My stencil is an older one, I think from Faber Castell, and had two sizes of honeycomb.  I went over some of the stencilling with Moda Scrap gelly paste, as well as over the bees’ wings. This just added some shine to the card, but any clear paste would likely work. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I just stamped and clear embossed it onto the strip I had created. 

To assemble the card, I mounted the sentiment and bee on foam tape. I also put foam tape behind some of the flowers to add dimension. I glued the poppy onto the bee and then arranged everything onto the card front. So it really was a quick and simple card, but I do love how happy that bee is!  

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day!
