I have to admit, I never really thought much of bees as a stamping element or as particularly cute. But when I started playing with this stamp set, I found they can be remarkably charming. 🙂
I started thinking about what to make with this set and got inspired by the honey pot to use my crystal effects. My favorite part of the card (because it was the most fun for me to create) was the honey pot on the inside of the card. I got to do paper piecing and use crystal effects for an end result I really like.
To make this pot, I stamped the pot image on the white cardstock. Then I stamped the pot image on some Lovely Lilac cardstock. I colored in the honey part on the white cs using a watercolor pen and So Saffron ink. Then I cut out the honey pot lid and the honey pot base minus the goopy honey drips and glued it down. Finally, I put down two layers of Crystal Effects over the honey drips on the white paper to make a shiny looking bit of honey!
