Stampin’ Up! Bee Mine Designer Series Paper

I love the little bees in the Bee Mine Designer Series Paper. When I was teaching elementary school, the slogan in my classroom was “Bee the Best You Can Be” so this paper is right up my alley! I still have the cute bee stuffed animals that I had in my classroom which are now in my craft room. Seriously, you can’t help but smile when you look at this paper.

My card today was one of the cards in my Blueberry Bunches Card Sampler which were mailed out yesterday. I also used the Blueberry Bunches stamp set, Everyday Details Dies and Linen Thread

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for the base of my card.  Then I cut three pieces of Bee Mine Designer Series Paper and adhered them to the front of the card (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). 

 

 

 

I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread twice around the front of the card and then tied a bow. I stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using the stamp set, Blueberry Bunches. I cut it out using the Everyday Details Dies, added a Stampin’ Dimensional to the top and bottom of the sentiment so it would lay flat over the Linen Thread and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

 

To complete my card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the card.  I don’t normally do this when I have a Thick Basic White base but it gives it some extra added bulk to the card. It’s purely optional.

Stampin’ Up! Softly Sophisticated Bundle

Today’s card features the Softly Sophisticated Bundle. When you spend a $100 during Sale-a-Bration, you can earn this bundle FREE! I also used Bee Mine Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Everyday Details Dies

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Sweet Sorbet cardstock for the base of my card. Then, I embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock using the Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder and adhered it to the front of the card. Next, I cut two pieces of Sweet Sorbet cardstock and two pieces of Bee Mine DSP and adhered them together (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). 

 

 

 

I adhered the yellow lined piece to the front of the card using Multipurpose Glue. To the bee piece I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and then adhered it to the front. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Sweet Sorbet ink and the stamp set, Softly Sophisticated. I then cut it out using the Everyday Details Dies, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to only the part “sitting” on the Bee Mine DSP and adhered it to the front of the card. To complete my card, I added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Stampin’ Up! Bee My Valentine

Happy New Year!!! I hope you had a safe and fun New Year’s Eve! My husband, Mark, and I stayed home and we may have gone to bed before the clock struck midnight. 🙂

Today I’m sharing a card with new products that you can order on Thursday, January 4th.  I used the Bee My Valentine stamp set #162547 (available January 4th), Bee Mine Designer Series Paper #162546 (available January 4th), Adhesive-Backed Hearts & Flowers #162557 (available January 4th), Stylish Shapes Dies and one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders. The Bee Mine Valentine Bundle #162554 will also be available on January 4th and it includes the Bee My Valentine stamp set and the Bee My Valentine Punch. I didn’t use the punch on my card today but I always like to let you know about bundles so you can save 10%. 

You can see another version of this card here.

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Sweet Sorbet cardstock for the base of my card.  Then, I adhered a piece of Basic White to the inside of the card. Next, I embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock using one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders.  I really love this particular embossing folder as it goes with everything but adds a nice texture to the card. Before adhering the embossed cardstock to the front of the card, I cut a piece of Bee Mine Designer Series Paper (available January 4th) and adhered it to the embossed cardstock. I like to do this first, in case I have to trim the paper.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve forgotten to adhere the Designer Series Paper to the cardstock first.

 

 

 

I cut another piece of Bee Mine Designer Series Paper (available January 4th) and adhered it to a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock. Then, I adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

I stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet ink onto Basic White cardstock using the Be My Valentine stamp set (available January 4th) and then cut it out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I cut a larger circle out of Balmy Blue cardstock and adhered the sentiment to the front.  I added Stampin’ Dimensional to the back (not on the part that hangs off the DSP/cardstock panel) and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

To complete my card, I added three hearts to the embossed cardstock using the Adhesive-Backed Hearts & Flowers #162557 (available January 4th).
