Hello, PMB friends, this is Michelle here today with a card that showcases the cute bee stamps. I paired it with a quote I altered from Jerry Maguire.
I was looking at all the cute stamps in The Sweet Life set from Fresh Squeezed Stamps. There are so many mini stamps for you to mix and match. I really liked how there are two different bees so that they can face each other. Whenever I try mirroring techniques, the second stamp is always lighter so it is noticeable when they are stamped side by side. I wanted to use the two bees on a romantic card.

I notched the corners of my white card base with a regular hole punch. I wanted it to match the shape of the stamp stickers in the set, especially if I use one on the envelope.
I typed my sentiment and ran it through my printer.
I punched out some clouds on scratch paper and glued them randomly on the card front using repositionable adhesive. I dabbed on three colors of blue ink over the entire card front. Then I peeled off the clouds and rubbed off the adhesive. This gave me the blue sky background.
I stamped the heart and bees on a separate piece of paper. I colored them with Copics and cut them out. I popped them on the card with foam adhesive. I wrapped some black craft wire on my paper piercer and stuck it into the foam adhesive for the curly flight path. If you do not have craft wire, you can use the matching stamp in the set.
Thanks so much for buzzing by and I'll see you next week!
