I Love Bees!
If you know me, you know I LOVE bees! I have one tattooed on my foot, I have them as decor around my houses and of course I use one in my logo. We also have planted lots of pollinator plants both for the bees and the hummingbirds. So when I saw this stamp set from Photoplay I knew I had to have it. As some of you know, I design cards for a (not so) local to me shop’s Demo Day. Well, they will be getting a card with one of these bees for the next 3 Demo Days! This set is seriously THAT versatile!
I just adore the sweet smile on this bees face! I want to hug her back. Two fun things I did with this little image. I placed Nuvo Glitter Gloss on the wings, and added 3D Crystal Lacquer on the heart.
Dimension is great! Nothing makes me sadder than a flat card. I like my layers to pop up, I like rhinestones, pearls, dew drops and Nuvo Drops. So when I set out to use these big alphabet dies for the HUGS, I cut them three times. I cut the green ones twice adhering them together, then once in black and adhered them a little offset to give them a shadow.
