happy birthday honey...

stamps: sweet as honey from penny black, itty bitty banners from stampin up!
inks: archival ink pad (sepia), tim holtz ink pad (scattered straw, dried marigold, brushed corduroy, sakura (clear star) glitter pen
cardstock: craftwork cards digi cardstock, 6x4" card blank(trimmed slightly)
dies: hexagon hive thinlits die from stampin up! and sizzix plus big shot machine to cut it from sizzix
I chose a bee theme for this card, inspired by one of my new goodies... the hexagon hive !! I die cut my card and trimmed it to size, (I saved the hexagons it cuts out to layer on selected areas for a bit of added dimension.) I then stamped my little bees and water coloured them using my ink pad and a brush. I used my glitter pen to create a nice finish on the wings. i hand cut each of my bees out to allow me to bend them and stick them on for a 3D effect. the banner stamped with the sentiment was the final element i made before the card could be glued together for my take on the sketch.



  1. You can never go wrong with hexagons! And the little bees are so sweet! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
