Sneak Peek - Pun Intended - Bee - Hostess Stamp Set

Today I'm showing you the last three Sneak Peek cards for the series of cards I made using one of the new 2016-2017 Hostess Stamp Sets, "Pun Intended".  We've seen three cards made with the 'Camera', and three cards made with the 'Edison Light Bulb'. The last image in this set is the 'Bee', and here they are!

For this first card I used Tip Top Taupe, Pear Pizzazz, and the new In-Colour Peekaboo Peach. These three colours are also incorporated using one of the Gorgeous Grunge stamps to create the wide boarder on the side. The leaves are from the stamp set "Remarkable You", and the 'Tag punch' is no longer available after May 31st.

The bees are stamped onto Peekaboo Peach with Tip Top Taupe and their chevron stripes coloured in with the Tip Top Taupe Stampin' Write Marker. They were also stamped onto vellum with Archival Basic Gray. The wings were cut as one piece with the head and bottom cut off and then attached to the back of the bees cut out without their wings. (I did this will all the bees for these three cards, in different colours of course)

Using the colours of the bees, yellow and black, I created this layered card, using all the yellows except Hello Honey as it will no longer be available after May 31st. The edges of all these layers are adhered together with Tear & Tape, but the die cut circle edges are popped up with dimensionals.

You can see some more details in the collage image below.

For the third and last card for the 'Bee' series of this stamp set, I used Smoky Slate, So Saffron, and the new In-Colour Sweet Sugarplum. I have to laugh whenever I look at this card because I so carefully lined up everything with Washi Tape, but I suppose the cardstock moved anyway because the stamped arrows from the "Pun Intended" set ended up crooked/uneven. The flourish from First Sight looks great on the die cut heart.

I love the dangley little hearts that I attached to the larger heart, and it works well with the Falling Snow texture folder too. It's fun to shake the card a bit to watch them shake about.

Below you can see the details in the collage.

Well that's it for the Sneak Peek of the Hostess set Pun Intended. I do plan on using this set again for non-card projects in the future, so watch for them!

Thank you for stopping by today to have a look.

Happy Stamping!
