Hello Everyone! Christine with Pattercrafts here today and can I say – I am LOVING this Christmas Bee Stamp Set by Art impressions this Christmas Season! For today’s card, I created a scene using various images from the Christmas Bee stamp set. I thought the sentiment was perfect for our little Bee Choir!
For this card I trimmed down a piece of paper from the “Let’s Talk Bees” 6×6 pattern paper pad from Scrapping for less with a stitched rectangle die. I also trimmed down 2 pieces of white cardstock and used a snowy hills die to create my snow banks. Along the snow banks I added some wonderful texture with the Uchida Snow Marker! This liquid turns “foam like” when heat set with a heat gun and it a lot of fun to watch as it goes from 1 form to the other.
All the images were hand stamped with Gina K Black Amalgam Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I die cut them with my Scan and Cut and added them to my card.
Once everything was added to my card, it was time to give lots of texture, sparkle and shine. To the tree I added some red Stickles for ornaments and Nuvo “Yellow Bird” Glitter drops on the tree top. To the bees’ hats, I added the White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops; on their wings I used just Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal drops (which dried clear). The ornament and bee hive were needing some sparkle so I added the Wink of Stella clear glitter brush to those!
Thanks So Much for Stopping by today! I hope you enjoy and get inspired!

As usual, I first stamped out all the images from the stamp set using the Gina K Black Amalgam Ink. I then colored the images with Copic Markers and die cut the images. I then used the Uchida Snow Marker to add texture to the “furry” parts of the bee.
Once my image was set, I trimmed down 2 pieces of pattern paper. One with a stitched rectangle die and the other with a small scalloped stitched die. I found some yellow ribbon in my stash to add to my card for even dimension and interest. I stamped the sentiment with versamark ink, sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat embossed.
Once everything was all set, I put it all together! I used 110lb black card stock for my card base – used some foam adhesive to add the oval panel and an action wobbler for my image. To finish the card I added some Wink of Stella to the hat and shoes and White Blizzard Glitter Nuvo Drops to the wings.
Thank You So Much for stopping by, I hope you enjoy and get inspired.
