NEW Bee Happy Stamp Set

Hi there! We are really excited to start sharing some wonderful inspiration for our Summer release here on the blog! Jane has made a beautiful card with our new Bee Happy stamp set and Honeycomb Hex stencil. We hope you enjoy Jane’s tutorial with lots of process photos…

I am so excited today today as I am able to share my first design team make using the brand new Visible Image Summer release. It was a hard choice which of my makes to share today, but I decided it just had to be the card I made using the Bee Happy stamp set and Honeycomb Hex stencil.

This is what I got up to.

I sprayed squeezed lemonade and wild honey distress stain sprays onto a piece of mixed media card.

I cut it down to 4 1/2 by 6 1/2 ” and  then die cut out 5 hexagons. At the top, in the centre, I stamped the word Bee

and at the bottom, Kind. I also stamped a couple of the smaller bees next to the words, seen in the later photos. 

I cut another piece of plain white card to stick underneath and randomly stamped the hexagons in the set in summertime Versafine Claire (these will be seen through the die cut apertures). 

I stamped the large bee onto white card and coloured the body with gold glitter pen and added gold and clear glitter pens to the wings. I wanted to have him on top of the card with his wings slightly raised. You will see this further on in the photos. I cut him out minus his antenna. 

I then stamped the rest of my bees. Some were stamped directly onto the card front, some onto the underneath piece of card.I added a little stenciling to the card front using fossalised amber distress ink through the hex stencil. I also stamped the inky splodge stamp as seen below, to give extra movement to the bees.

I lined up my white card underneath and worked out where to stamp the large bee. You could draw round the apertures with pencil if you find this easier for placement. I wanted it to overhang the aperture. I would then be able to line up my fussy cut bee when I put everything together and give him back his antennae! 

Here is the fussy cut bee being being lined up

before gluing him in place with a little foam tape under his wings to raise them up.

Here is my finished card

And one final photo

I absolutely love these bees and the stencil, and they are sure to be best sellers! The detail of the bees is incredible and they stamp perfectly.
