"Bee Happy"


These bees are so cute. They make me smile and want to bee happy. The first one is my favorite. I colored them with markers and added stickles to their wings to add a little shimmer. The bee happy greeting with the bee is from $1 clear stamps. I the tag is a sizzix tag die cut, and of course I had to use the cuttlebug. If you look closely, you can see some ink above the scallop circle. I stamped the bee happy greeting then ran it through the cuttlebug. It looked terrible so I tried to cover it up with the scallop circle. It was close but it still shows a little.
Stamps: Rubber Stampede, clear stamps
Paper: Creamy Carmel, Close to Cocoa, Summer Sun, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Embossing Folders, Giga and Mega Scallop Circle, SU Markers, Stickles, Sizzix tag die cuts, Silver Cord

This one is cute too. I also added stickles to his wings. The Bee Happy greeting is from Stampendous. It matches perfectly. I used the really rust paper so it would match the flower pot. I have been trying to use more of the earthy colors since they aren't my favorite.
Stamps: Rubber Stampede, Stampendous

Are you a SU consultant? If so, do you use your CB when you demo stuff? I am having my first workshop this weekend and have wondered about that.

Have a great week. Love these cards.
