Stampin Up Bug Me - Bee

Of the three Bug Me cards I have made so far this one is my favorite! I know the ladybug should be my favorite but I just love how the bee turned out and I think the colors of the card appeal to me more.

I actually had chosen different papers but didn't like how they looked so I just flipped them over and used them...another reason I love double sided paper!

As you can see I once again used the Petite Petals! I think you might believe me now about how much I just love that bundle!

I am doing my best to use every Stampin Up ink pad I have since I haven't used them in awhile and plus I want them to dry up so I can order the new ones! They are A to the W to the E SOME! None of the colors on this card uses the new colors though.

I stamped the bee's wings on some transparency paper and then cut them out. I like this paper so much better than velum because it prints and stamps well plus it was a lot cheaper. I am not even sure who makes the paper as I got it at the local bargain store a few years ago when they got some craft supplies in. I did buy several packs after first using it because I knew when it was gone it was going to be gone! It glues well with the Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive, and that is what I used to add the wings. I did color the stripes on the bee and then added some yellow Stickles. I hand doodled the little flight pattern.

Oh the corners of the stamped image was done with the Stampin Up Ticket punch. Sometimes I use so many different tools on a project I can't even remember what all I have used!


  1. Great card ! I love the Bees wings ! They make him look like he is coming to life !
    (Oh, and about the stamp pads they could come and live at my house to help you out ! I have 6 ink pads so they would find a very comfortable home ! HA ! Ha !)
    Thank you for all your inspiring cards !
