Caly here again to share a card using the Bee Happy set from our latest release. Our design team members have shared amazing cards using this set and I hope the card I share today will inspire you as well!
I stamped all the images using a Copic-friendly ink and colored them using Copic markers (B0000, YG13, YG09, Y11, Y17, Y21, YR16, C5, C7).
After coloring all the images, I used the coordinating Bee Happy dies and then highlighted the images with a white gel pen (if you do it before cutting, it may rub off some depending on if the metal touches the white lines).
Before starting on the card front panel, I carefully put glossy accents over the honey jar, all the wings and the nerdy bee’s glasses (teehee). I set those aside to dry – be sure not to touch! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve messed up an image cutting the glossy accents too soon!
For the card front panel, I started by alternating a little hexagon die (one comes with the coordinating die set – yay!) and hexagon stamp. I used Altenew inks in Buttercream and Warm Sunshine. To add more color to the card, I ink-blended some Mowed Lawn and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks on the left side. I also added some Buttercream to the card base where the hexagon windows are.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this project today. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope your day is bee-you-tiful!
The little bee with glasses is too adorable! 🐝👓
Oh so CUTE!!!
Love your charming, happy card Caly, along with the great color choices!
