Honey Bee Stamps BEE BOLD Blog Hop


Hello and welcome Honey Bee friends!
This is day 2 of the Honey Bee Stamps BEE BOLD release Blog Hop.  
I'm so excited about this fun release and thrilled to be hopping along today with some of our very talented Honey Bee design team members.  If you've arrived from Wanda's blog then you're right on track but if not there's a complete list of today's hop with links at the end of my post including information on the giveaway.  
Your next stop will be Carrie's blog

If any of you have been following my Instagram posts then you've seen some of the fabulous products in action.  
I've got a new card to share today along with all the other cards I've previously posted on IG. 


This card features the Birds and Bees stamp set and coordinating Honey Cuts.   I've colored all my images with Copic markers and added highlight details with a white gel pen.  I love building scenes but I wanted to change it up a bit by using the Scalloped A2 Frames as a backdrop in an offset grid pattern.  For all four frames, I masked off the scalloped edges and inked the center area with a light blue ink.  I also lightly inked the front of the A2 card base with a pale peachy color. 


The sentiments are from the Hi Honey stamp set which I stamped directly on two of the scalloped background pieces.  I trimmed off one side of each scalloped piece to ensure they all fit within the space of my card front and adhered them with foam tape.  Then I added all the images and hand drew in some dashed lines for the bee trails.  


Below are the cards I've previously posted on Instagram with links to the new products used.
