Bees and more bees from Honey Bee Stamps

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Today is check on the parents day so I’ll be out of here shortly to pick up their groceries and take them out to lunch. So I carved out some time this morning to put together a quick and easy card. And when it comes to quick and easy, I turn to Honey Bee Stamps!

I start by die cutting a piece of cardstock for my background layer with the Zig Zag Rectangle die from Lawn Fawn. I stamped the sentiment from the Small Gang stamp with Versafine ink and heat set it with clear embossing powder.The background was stenciled with Distress Inks and set aside to dry. I had a few bees left from Saturday’s card so I supplement them with some of the smaller bees from the Bee Hive stamp set. The bees color up quickly so I just adhered them with foam squares and added a few embellishments. Well, more than a few. Might have overdone the sequins, but I loved the combination.
