One of the awesome benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! demo is that Stampin’ Up! holds events for demos and we have an upcoming event next month. A benefit of registering for the event is that we sometimes get to order upcoming product. For the upcoming #OnStageAtHome2023 demos were able to pre-order the Bee Mine Collection that will be in the January-April 2024 Mini Catalog. The Bee Mine Collection includes an adorable bee themed punch bundle and coordinating Designer Series Paper pack. You can watch the Facebook Live replay of a sneak peek of the Bee Mine Collection, a look at the upcoming Online Exclusives that will be available November 7th, and how I made this super cute Bee My Valentine Bundle Hello Card below.
Start with a Daffodil Delight cardstock card base. Cut a Bee Mine Designer Series Paper panel, a Vellum cardstock panel, and a Basic Black cardstock panel. Dry emboss the Basic Black cardstock panel with the dots Basic 3D embossing folder. Glue the embossed Basic Black cardstock panel to the Vellum cardstock panel and then to the Designer Series Paper panel. Glue the panels to the card base.
Die cut a Basic White cardstock scalloped rectangle with the Scalloped Contours dies. Stamp the honeycomb image from the Bee My Valentine stamp set in Memento Black ink down the left side of the scalloped rectangle. Use the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to color a few cells in the honeycomb images. Glue the stamped and colored scalloped rectangle to the card front.
Stamp the bee bodies in Daffodil Delight ink and stripes & stinger image in Memento Black ink from the Bee My Valentine stamp set on Basic White cardstock. Stamp the antenna images and the wings images twice in Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock. Punch out all the images with the Bee My Valentine punch. Punch out two Vellum cardstock wings (larger heart) with the Bee My Valentine punch. Use a bone folder to gently curl the Vellum cardstock wings and then use glue dots to attach them to the Basic White cardstock punched wings. Stamp the face image from the Bee My Valentine stamp set in Memento Black ink on the bee bodies. Add color to the bees’ cheeks with the Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend and add Wink of Stella to the bees for sparkle. Use glue dots to add the wings and the antennas to the bee bodies. Punch three Basic Black cardstock small hearts (antenna) with the Bee My Valentine punch and then use a glue dot to add the hearts to the bees overlapping the wings. I added one bee to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the second bee with a Wobble (can find in my Amazon Favorites).
Stamp the larger heart image from the Bee My Valentine stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink on Basic White cardstock. Stamp the three small hearts image from the Bee My Valentine stamp set in Memento Black ink on the stamped heart. Stamp the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Memento Black ink on the heart and then punch out the heart with the Bee My Valentine punch. Punch out a Basic Black cardstock and Daffodil Delight cardstock heart with the the Bee My Valentine punch. Use paper snips to cut the Basic Black cardstock hear in half. Use Stampin’ Seal to add the halves of the Basic Black cardstock heart to the back of the sentiment heart and then use more Stampin’ Seal to add the Daffodil Delight cardstock heart to the back of the sentiment hearts. Use glue to add the built sentiment hearts to the top right of the scalloped rectangle on the card front. Add Daffodil Delight dots from the Glossy Dots Assortment to the card front in the honeycomb cells.
Add a Basic White cardstock inside panel to write your message. Add a strip of Bee Mine Designer Series Paper to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through. Add a punched Basic Black cardstock small heart and stamp the sentiment from the Go To Greetings in Memento Black ink to the inside panel.
