Buzzing By......




TGIF Peeps! Hope your week has gone well, I am hoping for some cooler temps, fingers crossed.

Toady I am sharing a fun little bee hive box, I saw the pattern here. I made mine a bit smaller than the original and of course changed the stamp sets to SU. I used the Just Buzzin BY set, perfect for a bee hive box, wouldn't you say?

I used crushed curry card stock for my box and sponged the edges heavily with crushed curry and chocolate chip classic inks. The handle is a strip of chocolate chip card stock and is held in place with brads. My beehive image from the stamp set was stamped onto watercolor paper and then colored and cut out, as was the three bees. I made my main image panel into a tag using very vanilla and chocolate chip. I added some summer sun ribbon at the top. The bees wings are cover with some star dust stickles. I used my MS drippy goo punch at the bottom of the tag. The sentiment was stamped with black stazon onto very vanilla and cut apart and attached to the box. I used dimensionals on the hive and the bees and on the tag.







Well, that is all from me, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

This is adorable! I had to have this set and rarely use it. You may have inspired me to actually pull it out and use it again. Fabulous box!
