A bright and happy hued paper collection will fill your soul with rays of warm sunshine yellows, bright sky blues and rich golden honey colors, while boasting captivating honeycomb patterns, happy hexagons, delightful polka dots, perfect plaids and dreamy florals! An assembling of three “bee-coming” cling stamp sets, along with coordinating dies provide endless inspirations with a “bee-utiful” colony of honey bee maidens, whimsical hives and sweet sentiments, ideal for pairing with honeycomb die cuts!

Instructions: Card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2”. Cut saffron cardstock 4 1/4 x 11”, score at 5 1/2” on the long side and fold to create card base. Cut the glossy cardstock 4 x 5 1/4”. Cut designer paper from the paper collection 4 x 5 1/4” and adhere to the inside of the card base with dries clear glue.

Stamp the honeycomb image on the glossy cardstock randomly using VersMark ink. Sprinkle with WOW Clear Sparkle embossing powder and heat set using the Heat It Tool. Use the Mini Blending tool and blending foam to ink the cardstock with the Sunflower, Tiger Lily and Aquamarine archival inks. Use a paper towel to rub the color off of the embossed image. Cut an aperture in the glossy cardstock using the Eyelet Rectangles & Basics Die setusing the second smallest die. Cut a frame from pearl white metallic cardstock using the second and third smallest dies. Diecut the honeycomb from pearl white metallic cardstock. Sponge the frame and honeycomb with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter. Adhere the frame to the front of the aperture and the honeycomb on the back of the aperture.

Stamp the Honey Bee Maiden and the bumble bee on watercolor cardstock with VersaMark, sprinkle with black embossing powder and heat set using the Heat It tool. Color using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and Kuretake water brush. When dry, use the Quickie glue pen to adhere Lion’s Mane glitter to the bees and Crystal Ultrafine Transparent glitter to the wings. Lightly shape using the deluxe flower shaping kit.

Stamp the Delightful Daisies and leaves on white cardstock using VersaMark, sprinkle with WOW Clear Sparkle Embossing Glitter and heat set using the Heat It tool. Color the flowers using the Tiger Lily, Aquamarine and Sunflower Archival inks and color the leaves using Olive Archival Ink. Wipe the excess ink off of the embossing using a paper towel. Diecut using the coordinating dies, place face down in the mold, spritz with water and run through the die cutting machine. Finishing shaping using the deluxe flower shaping kit. Use two large petals for the Tiger Lily flower, two medium petals for the Aquamarine flower and one small petal for the Sunflower color flower. Add dries clear adhesive to the flower centers and add Minnie Pearls, Go Man Go and Lemon Chiffon prills. Let dry and then sponge dries clear adhesive on the flowers and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear.
