Bee my Gnomie


I can't believe how fast Valentine's day is creepin' up.   Can we vote and push that back a month?  I'm not going to lie.  I still have Christmas stamps on my desk.  I'm trying to wrap up unfinished projects.    The probably will finish themselves up, right?   

Well to take my mind off of the mess, I decided to create a new one.   My friend (Kimberly) and I noticed that all of sudden bees are everywhere.   Bees seem to be a trending for Valentine's day.  How could I not jump on the band wagon.  I have planned out a few different bee cards to share with you before Feb 14th!  My first card features a gnomie from Unity.  This little bee keeper is enjoying a sweet treat.  I colored the pots in 3 different colors.   Do you have a favorite?    Did you know at the bottom every blog post, I share all my copic colors if I used them?


Sentiments from Honeybee stamps
Hexagon cover plate - very similar to what I used. 

paper from Stampin' Up
Yellow polka dot purchased at Hobby Lobby

Inka Gold to add some shine to a few of the honeycombs.  They no longer make Inka Gold... it is called Solar paste.  Same thing
Copics are listed at the bottom of post

I wasn't really sure where I was going from here.... but I kept on the bee theme.  Here is how they turned out.  I made 10 cards in total.  

Close up of the Inka Gold-  just adds a shine.  Solar paste will do something very similar
