Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, our blog hop theme is Sale-A-Bration! We hope you will be inspired by all the beautiful creations the Pals made for you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

To Sale-A-Brate with the Pals and you, I decided to showcase another Bundle that made it to my “A” list. The Queen Bee Bundle is beautifully Vintage, or can be clean and simple. I wanted to capture both styles in today’s card.

When I saw the ink splatter patterns in the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper pack, (the top layer of my card) it screamed “Queen Bee” to me. This is a natural combination and helped make this card quick and easy to put togther. So, let’s make a card!

Today’s Card Parts Ane Pieces

FREE Dainty Flowers DSP paired with the Queen Bee Bundle
  • Cut a Basic White card base 7 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and score at 3″.
  • Cut two Starry Sky cardstock layers: one measuring 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ (for the inside), and one measuring 2 7/8′ x 5 3/8″ (for the outside left front panel).
  • The top focal point Starry Sky layer is 3 1/2″ x 4″.
  • Cut the Starry Sky and white patterned paper front panel layer 2 3/4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • I cut a piece of the watercolor washed and ink splattered DSP 3 3/8″ x 3 7/8″.

Stamp And Assemble

  • Using your stamp positioning tool, or Stamparatus, position your stamps as shown on the ink splattered DSP layer. (The bee will be in the bottom right corner, “Happy Birthday” will be in the top left corner, and the little bee on the right side near the top right corner).
  • Once positioned, stamp the images with Starry Sky ink onto the patterned paper layer.
  • That’s it!
  • Die cut the flowers, little heart and open honeycomb using the dies from the Bundle.
  • Attach the layers as shown and attach the focal point layer to the center ofthe front remembering to put glue only on the back left side of this panel.

The Inside Story

  • Stamp and die cut another bee image and adherre it to the inside Starry Sky layer.
  • Die cut a second honeycomb and attach it to the bottomof the inside writing layer, as shown.
  • All done!

You can take a look at the video tutorial below to watch me put this card together.

Quick and easy, right? Did you notice the little die cut heart on the Queen Bee?

So, cut a few layers, stamp the images with one sweep of ink, add a flower die cut or two, and create a happy birthday wish!

… the only limitationis your imagination!

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on February 8th, when we will be creating projects for Random Acts of Kindness Week.

Until then, have fun in your craft space.
