Bee-lated Birthday

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? I have been very busy the end of term is always busy. I have some leaving cards to make.

I was asked by Sophy Haes, who runs  The Isobel Craft Collection - The Cardsmaker's One Stop Shop,  to use some of her stamps to make a card and mention her Facebook page on my blog. I agreed and I choose the Bee Set of Stamps. They are so cute.

This is the card I made. I stamped the stamps onto watercolour card with Black Archival ink and when this was dry I coloured them with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. 

This is the stamp set you get lots of stamps they can be bought from the Etsy shop

For the background I used the honeycomb stamp. All the other stamps where cut with some Crafter's Companion nest hexagon dies. They came with the latest edition of Crafter's Inspiration. They were ideal for this project. 

The stamps were in various sizes and suited different dies from the set. 

The finished card measures 7.5" x 5". The ribbon was in my stash. Why not visit Sophy's page This page also holds monthly sales where you can buy craft goodies from brands such as Phill Martin, Sue Wilson, Sizzix, Spellbinders, Creative Expressions, Tonic Studios and many more! Here is a link to her next sale Why not grab a crafty bargain. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting
