Hello Honey Bee!!!

After my “first” attempt of the Hexagon Hive Die-cut being ripped in two, oops, as much as I love it I tend to shy away from using it but today I decided to work through my pain barrier. And as I was working through my pain barrier in this horrid heat, I challenged myself to use GREEN! Here’s my card…

Bee Mine - Hello Honey Hexagons - JIF

It’s not that green and I aren’t on speaking terms, it’s simply a case of mixing in different circles, our paths seldom crossing. That was until today. Today I’m into Wild Wasabi, even buying some Wasabi Peas to assist my process! I’ve used Wild Wasabi Cardstock as a thin border behind the Hexagon Hive Die-Cut and Wild Wasabi 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon.

The Honeycomb Hello Stamp Set only JUST arrived yesterday so I was itching to use it with the Hexagon Die-Cut. How cute is this bee and the matching sentiment? There is also a heart stamp that coordinates with the Heart Punch in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack but I opted for a simple Silver Foil punched heart.

Hardwood Trio!

The Hardwood Background Stamp, available in the Celebrate the Everyday catalog, has proved itself quite a main-stay for me these past few months. Depending on the color you choose to stamp with, it can be a subtle or in-your-face background, or it can make quite the feature. I love this versatility from a background stamp!

This first card was quite the mistake and highlights yet another reason why one should really only have ONE stamp pad open at a time when stamping as I intended to be stamping with Crumb Cake Classic Ink not the Cajun Craze Classic Ink, lol! Oddly it made the next step so much easier as I had NO idea what I was going to do next.

Hardwood - Hello Blue Bird - JIFThis next card is VERY different to what I’d normally do but when I first added this stamp to my stash, this was the only way I could see how to use it. How funny is THAT!

Hardwood - Sweet Birds - JIFThe subtle stamping of this image is what I like best about it, lending itself to more masculine cards I feel, but that could be just me. Even with bling it’s still a male card, lol!
