Happy Honey Bee Day! Blog Hop

Did you know that today is National Bee Day?  How fitting it is that Honey Bee Stamps is participating in a blog hop for Bee Day!  To see all the other designer's card and the full hop list head over to the Honey Bee Stamps blog HERE.

For my card I used the new Honey Bee Paper Piecing dies.  (I have a complete supply list at the end.) This is the first card I've made in a long time that had ZERO coloring on it! Haha!  Once I figured out my design, this card was super quick and easy to make.

I used a sheet of patterned paper from the 6x6 paper pad called The Bees' Knees.  Y'all, this paper pad is SO pretty!  You really should check it out!!!  I adhered it onto black and turquoise layers.  For the sentiment, I used one from the the Hi Honey set and stamped it onto a layer I die cut using one of the Double Stitched Polygon dies.

After I assembled the bees I cut some vellum to add behind their wings.  I glued them on with some Distress Collage Medium-Matte.  I then added some sparkle to all the bees' wings with a clear sparkle pen.  Two of the bees are popped up with foam squares.  The polygon shaped is popped up with foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Long live the bees!!!!   Carol :)
