Bee-lieve in Bumble Bee Brads!

TGIF crafty friends!  Susie here with another ATC*.

One of my sisters is a beekeeper so I am drawn to them as subject matter in my crafting projects.  There are so many lessons we can learn from bees - such interesting and industrious creatures.  This card encourages faith in your own abilities - if you just Bee-lieve!   Time to play...

Using Archival Ink, I stamped an ATC with the image and sentiment and then pulled out the watercolors. I painted the honeycomb with a mix of yellows, golds and tans.


I attached just one of the Bumble Bee Brads (which come in a 12 pack)... 

...matted the ATC with black cardstock and mounted it on a simple card base.  

As usual, I did stamp off a few extra ATCs which I would love to share.  If you are interested in one, leave me a comment for me over on my Instagram page. 

By the way, if you do a search over at the Eyelet Outlet online store you will find a few more bee-themed items, including washi tape and 2 additional styles of brads.   Be sure to check it out HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
