"Bee" Happy On Your Birthday

I couldn't resist this pun either. I am in a punchy mood since I have been traveling the past few days to and from my Leadership Conference. This was my other card I swapped:

Stamps: Nature's Walk, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: So Saffron, Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Night of Navy, Naturals Ivory, Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories: Big Shot, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Night of Navy Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Modern Label Punch, Soft Subtles Brads, Paper Piercing Tool and Matte, Craft and Ribbon Scissors, 1 1/4 Circle Punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, 1 3/4 Circle Punch, Sponge Daubers

I started by trying to find a way to use the honeycomb page of this designer series paper. The bee seemed right for it, but then what? I liked the circles around the bee, but needed more, so added the ribbon, but needed more, so added the Soft Suede layer. I wanted a unique color combo that would also be masculine.

Happy Stamping!



  1. Hahaha, "punchy" - was that another pun? ;) I really like the strong colors in this card, and you are right, it feel very masculine. Love it!

  2. So pretty with the texture and the sponging!

  3. Love how the texture is honeycomb-esk. This is a great masculine card!!

  4. Great masculine card! Love how you used the lattice embossing folder!


Thanks for commenting! I love feedback!
