My favorite product from the Stampin’ Up January-June 2020 Mini Catalog is the Honey Bee bundle, which includes the Honey Bee stamp set and the Detailed Bees Dies. I love this card because it is simultaneously elegant and whimsical. Also, it requires minimal time and supplies to create it. As far as paper goes, you only need a 5.5″ x 8.5″ piece of white cardstock and a 1″ x 5.5″ strip of patterned paper. I’ve used a piece of paper from the Warm Honey DSP that was available during Sale-a-Bration, but other pattern paper could work as well if you didn’t get the chance to acquire some while it was available.
If you’ve ever listened to or watched Harry Nilsson’s The Point, the title of this post may make you chuckle. If you haven’t, you probably think I’m bee-ing a little silly. (I love bad puns.)
Today’s card uses some of the Golden Honey designer specialty paper, which you can earn as part of Stampin’ Up’s Sale-a-Bration promotion when you spend $50 or more on Stampin’ Up product. I really love this paper. I would probably want the paper even if there weren’t a coordinating stamp set.
The paper behind the vellum with the sentiment on it is actually gold foil. I wanted to mute it since the paper, cutout bee, and hearts are glitzy enough on their own.

I’m enjoying making projects with Stampin’ Up’s Honey Bee stamp set with coordinating dies and designer specialty papers. This week I’ll share a few of my creations.
This card was simple to make. I sponged the white paper with Delicata golden glitz ink, using the honeycomb die cut from the Detailed Bees die set as a mask. I cut the bee and the hearts from the same set and glued them over the honeycomb using a Fine-Tip Glue Pen.
