Sweet Honey Bee Shaker Card

Hi Friends, I am back today with one last project using the A Little Wild bundle.

 

Sweet Bee Shaker card made with A Little Wild stamp set and Little Loves framelits dies

 

This bundle has been really fun to create with!  Have you ever found a stamp set or bundle that you start making a specific project with, than you find yourself creating more and more with it, because it is so fun to work with?  That's how I feel about this bundle!  As you know from my last post, I am in love with the little bees!  So this project was made specifically for those little guys, and of course, I had to make a bee hive with little bees inside! What better way to do that, than with a shaker card!

 

Sweet bee shaker card made with A Little Wild stamp set and Little Loves framelits dies
 

 To create this card, cut the following pieces of cardstock:

  • 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock, scored at 5 1/2"
  • 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Basic Black cardstock
  • 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock
  • 2" x 2" piece of Whisper White cardstock
  • 1 1/4" x 2 1/2" piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock
  • 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" piece of Window Sheet

Stamp the bee hive randomly across the front of the Whisper White layer in Daffodil Delight ink.  Stamp 3 sets of bees on the 2" Whisper White piece in Archival Black ink, than color them with the Daffodil Delight watercolor pencil.  Using the bee hive die from the Little Loves framelits set, die cut a hive just off center near the bottom of the Whisper White layer, and use the bee die to cut out the bees.  Now, make the shaker.  On the back side of the Whisper White layer, adhere the piece of window sheet using Fast Fuse adhesive.  Than, applying Foam Adhesive Strips to the window sheet, outline the bee hive.  Place some bees (face down) inside the hive.  I also added some black and irridescent sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment.  Now, you can choose to apply the Basic Black layer over the top, but I cheat, and add a second layer of window sheet over this area.  I find it is easier to line up my layers, so this is what I did.  I than adhered the front layer to the Basic Black layer.  Next, tie a double piece of Basic Black solid twine around the center, and adhered this piece, with dimensionals, to the Daffodil Delight card base.  For the sentiment, I used the Cool Treats stamp set because the word Sweet was perfect!  This was also stamped in Archival Black ink.  For the right edge of the sentiment strip, I lined up the bee hive die along the edge of the strip, and die cut an edge to fit along the shaker window.  Punch the other end with the Banner Triple Punch, and adhere along the bottom of card, lining up with the hive.   Embellish as you choose with the little bees.

 

The colors I choose for this card are simple.  You could substitute Crushed Curry if you wanted a bolder golden color.

Coolest Bundle Ever

Today I am sharing one of the coolest bundles ever!  The Cool Treats Suite of products in the Occasions catalog is one of my favorites.  The stamps, dies, and embellishments are just adorable, and so so fun!  It doesn't hurt that the color combination includes some of my favorites, and it is good for kids, and kids at heart!

 

Cool Treats Bundle and Product Suite

I recently did a birthday card class.  It was so fun!  We even had cake and gifts, after all, what would a party be without those!  And although this bundle has great cool treats, I wanted to create a birthday cake card to make at class.  Enter the ice cream cone dies.  This cone with slits works perfectly to create icing on this cake.  And when you layer multiple cuts of the cones, the dimension is really fun!

Now throw in the Sprinkles Embellishments, and it is a winner!

 

To make your own birthday cake card, start with a card base and top layer in Pool Party.  Add a strip of the Tasty Treats designer series paper, which is part of the Cool Treats Suite, backed with a strip of Early Espresso cardstock.  The placemat is made using the Layering Ovals framelits, and also cut from the Tasty Treats designer series paper and Early Espresso cardstock.  The plate is punched with circle punches, and the cake is made simply by stacking multiple die cuts from the Frozen Treats Framelits.  A silver foil spoon must be included with the cake.  And I finished it all off with a few square sequins from the Sprinkles Embellishments.  Add your sentiments in Early Espresso ink to complete the card.

 

Here is the color combination, give it a try:
