Bee Happy

Hi Blog Friends! I enjoyed making today's card. I used a lot of "tools." I had to smash a bottle cap and sand those Honeycomb ridges! I took one of Stampin' Up's Large Pop Tops and ran it through my Big Shot between two cutting plates. It came out a bit uneven, but that didn't stop me. I added a 1" circle after stamping an image from Collage Curios onto it in Sahara Sand. The script background was the perfect platform to place my bee, also from Collage Curios. Mr. Bee is stamped in Crumb Cake and colored using a So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker. He is popped up using a Stampin' Dimensional. 

I placed my Pop Top in the middle of a banner that I snipped out of Parker's Patterns DSP. This print is so rich---it looks like a piece of moire ribbon. You can see my sanding on the Core-dinations Early Espresso Card Stock. The sanding part was actually fun, if a little bit messy. You can sand as little or as much as you like!

I hope you enjoyed looking at my creation. Please leave your comments below. Don't forget to check out my Promotions Page so you can learn all about Stampin' Up's great special deals!

Patti just LOVE your card! I adore the bottle cap and little bee, (i think the big ones work better) and the honeycomb background is a perfect fit. You are SO right about the DSP because I DID think it was ribbon! hugs.
