Joy Clair - Bee Kind

Hi Everyone,

I am back with some cards I made from the latest Joy Clair release set Bee Kind.

I heat embossed the honeycomb pattern and sprinkled Brushos on it and then spritzed with water. I added the flourishes and the bees. I also stamped the bees on vellum and on card stock and paper pieced them together. 

As you can see, I also added Stickles to the wings to make them sparkle. 

The stamp sets I used:

For my second card I also heat embossed the honeycomb pattern, but then smooshed distress inks onto the card. Let it dry. Added the sentiment - which is from the set Butterfly Kisses. I mounted it with foam tape.

The paper strip on the left is from an old envelope - you may want to check the inside of those envelopes you are getting - some of them have really nice patterns. Too pretty to throw out!

Linking up with :
Steckenpferdchen - aquarell (second card)
Hope you liked this!

Liking these backgrounds with the brusho's...will be giving these a go as they are so effective. Loving the distress ink smooshing too, so vibrant. Gorgeous colours and the bee stamp set is so cute as are those vellum wings x

Die Bienenkarte ist klasse!!! Auf die Idee, die Bienen auszuschneiden und dann auf die gestempelten Tiere zu kleben muss man erst mal kommen. Du hast aber auch immer wieder tolle neue Ideen. Wo nimmst du die nur her???
Liebe Grüße

I'll just say, WOW!, and get it over with. That honeycomb stamp served you very well. Love it with both the bees and the gorgeous rainbow-y card. The wings on those darling bees really look iridescent with the stickls and you always know just how to add the sentiment to your cards. Really adore the way you did it on the 2nd one.

More delicious brusho backgrounds, Cornelia ... love how the striped DP mimics the striped bees on the first ... and those rainbow colours on the second are just delicious! Hugs, Anita :)

Loved your hexagon background and different inks! So impressed!!

Absolutely love the bees. So full of movement and I love their glossy sparkly wings. You manage to use stamp sets so well - look at the difference in them all, but it's still the same set. Xx
