Today, I'm sharing the two cute honey bear A Little Wild cards from Peggy that pushed me over the edge.
A Little Wild Honey Bear & Beehive Card
Oh my goodness! Of course I think the A Little Wild bear is completely adorable, but it was the coordinating little beehive element that did it for me! I LOVE the way she added some metallic thread loops to the back of it to make it look like the bees were buzzing around the hive! Perfect!
Background Basics—The card begins with an Early Espresso card base. Peggy first stamped the branch image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Early Espresso ink onto the top left of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Then she stamped the trio of bees image 3 times around the branch in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Marker. She added a 2" x 5-1/4" piece of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper down the right side then mounted the layer onto the card front with SNAIL adhesive.
Busy Bees—Peggy stamped the hive image in Memento Black onto Very Vanilla cardstock, colored it in with Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Markers and die-cut it with the Little Loves Framelits. She added some SNAIL to the back of the hive, then attached the Gold Metallic Thread in small loops before popping it up with Dimensionals.
Honey Bear—The bear image was also stamped in Memento Black onto Very Vanilla cardstock, then colored with the Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends and Daffodil Delight Blends for the bee. The grass image was stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink. The image was die-cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits, then layered onto a Crushed Curry scallop circle die-cut with the Layering Circles Framelits. It's popped up with Dimensionals.
Sweet Sentiment—Peggy finished the card by stamping the sentiment in Memento Black ink onto Very Vanilla, cutting it out and popping it up at the bottom left of the card.
A Little Wild Hello Honey Bear Card
Peggy shared another cute card featuring the adorable honey bear!
Background Basics—Peggy stamped the beehive image in Crushed Curry ink randomly over a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of Crushed Curry. She cut out a circle window from that piece using the Layering Circles Framelits, then mounted it onto a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Early Espresso. The layers are mounted onto a Crushed Curry card base.
Honey Bear—The bear was stamped in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, then colored in with the Bronze Stampin' Blends Markers. The bee was colored with the Daffodil Delight Blends marker. It's popped up in the center of the circle window.
Buzzing Bees—The bees were stamped in Memento Black onto Whisper White scrap, colored with the Daffodil Delight Blends Markers and die-cut with the Little Loves Framelits. Seriously, it's not the bear that sold me…it's those sweet little bees! They are adhered with a dot of Multipurpose Glue.
Sweet Sentiment—The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso ink, then punched with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch and popped up with Dimensionals. Peggy added one more bee as an accent.
