Hello and Happy Father's Day! For this month's Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb we chose bees as our main theme for our cards. To create my card I started by layering some basic black cardstock onto my white A2 card base and then stamped the bee onto some white cardstock using Hampton Art Hello Honey stamp set and Memento tuxedo black ink. Using one of the foliage stamps in the set I created an oval wreath around my bee, stamped the sentiment above and below the bee, and added some honey comb elements in the corners. I colored all of the images using my Copic markers and die cut that panel using a Paper Rose stitched edge stacking die. I mounted the focal panel onto my card base using 3M foam tape and then finished the card off with some Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen onto the wings and some pretty gems from the Honey Bee Stamps Fresh Brewed gem collection.
My coffee selection this month is kind of coffee themed. I went this past week to St. Louis with some friends and stopped at a local restaurant that microbrews their own beer. I couldn't turn down this amazing maple coffee stout, especially given how hot it's been here in the Midwest this past week. This stuff really hit the spot! Now be sure to stop by Debra's blog to see what fun she created this month!
Great card! Love the hello honey and details. The microbrew sounds delicious!
What a beautiful card, love the honeycomb corners and the wreath.
Love this card. That bee image is really bee-u-tiful and I love the sentiment "hello, honey". Never thought of that one. Great job.
Hi, Celeste! One kind visit deserves another, I say!
What a gorgeous image you've used as inspiration for your card! Great that you had an equally beautiful bee to stamp! The WOS was perfect for adding that glisten to her wings!
Isn't St. Louis a fun city?? It's among our favorite weekend cities to visit! LOve your zoo, and botanical garden! What a fun place for a girls' weekend!
What a great bee you've put front and center on your card! This is marvelous, Celeste!
Your honey bee card is so sweet.
Beautiful Celeste and i love the shimmer!
