LOC Honeysweet

My day started with a minus 6C temperature so I decided that there is no other way to go than bright and sunny - using the Layers of Color New Release Honeysweet art stamp set!

Who doesn't love Bumble Bees - they are the cutest little things - you know aerodynamically they should not be able to fly - they also have to be home before dark otherwise they cannot generate enough body heat to fly - and how do I know this.....in New Zealand we have Bumble Bees and my Mum was always telling us facts about them as we grew up - she loves them and we all grew up loving them.

This set has so many adorable images - this one coordinates with the Spellbinders Labels 18 - doesn't that make it easy!  I have used the Grand Calibur to cut it out - I love the crisp lines that the Grand Calibur always gives.

I have stamped the bee separately and popped up its wings, adding a little Kindy Glitz for some shimmer.

My satin bow has been tied with the Bow-Easy and the divine bling is from my friend Gunn in a gorgeous RAK - I have been saving this for the right card - and this is it!!

You can see the gorgeous DP from DCWV's La Creme Stack.

  1. Gorgeous, Linda! I adore your work and your heart, sweet friend!

  2. Love the litte details as the stitching and the tearing. Perfect papers/colors for the image as well.

  3. This is beautiful! I did not know about the home before dark, glad I have another bit of trivia on the mighty bumble bee. It is a H U G E symbol in Mary Kay Cosmetics, because she shouldn't be able to fly, but she does it anyway. If you haven't read Mary Kay Ash's story, I think you would really enjoy it. Your kind of 'read', I think. Hug~Lori
