Bee Thankful

It's a conundrum, create with a favorite set that is retiring soon or create with one of my preorder sets from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Today the retiring soon set won.  I love the Honey Bee Bundle from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog...that bee in the Detailed Bee Dies is to die for (pun intended).

This card couldn't be simpler, die cut the bee from Gold Foil Sheets. On a 4"x5.25" Whisper White panel, stamp the leaf images in Pear Pizazz, overlapping the end of the stem just a little - though I realize now that the ends are covered so my precision placement is lost.

Stamp the greeting with Versamark, use the Heat Tool to heat emboss with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Die cut the greeting with the smallest die in the Stitched So Sweetly dies (not retiring!) It's like the greeting was made for the die.

I couldn't stop there and added a little Wink of Stella to the flowers on the leaf garlands.

The bee is mounted using Mini Glue Dots, the greeting is mounted with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The panel is mounted to an A2 size card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

You still have a few more days to make the Honey Bee Bundle yours. If you want to purchase Stampin' Up! supplies and do not already have a demonstrator I'd love you to choose to shop 24/7 from my Online Store and have your supplies delivered to your doorstep! While you are shopping check out the retiring items. Be sure to use my May Host Code D6HUVKCG when placing your order! If your order is $150 you do not need to use the host code as you qualify for Host Benefits.

Thank you for looking!  I hope you are staying well in this crazy time  

Happy Stampin'
