Birthday “Bees” for the Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the June 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month’s theme, Pick a “B”, features projects inspired by Babies, Birthdays and Brides to name few. You may just get a glimpse of new catalog products while you hop with us today.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Stampin Up Eastern medallion and Window Box Birthday - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

I actually achieved two “b’s” with my project today if you count the adorable little bees on the card and the window box.  I love to coordinate a card with a 3D item.  They make such unique little gifts.

Here’s the details:

  • The sweet sunflower was created by cutting and layering one of the Eastern Medallion dies twice…once in Daffodil Delight and once in Crushed Curry card stock.
  • The center is a 2″ circle punched from Basic Black card stock and embossed with the Elegant Dots (retired) embossing folder.

  • The DSP pattern is from Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paperr.  This is my favorite pattern in the collection and I think it pairs well with Crushed Curry card stock.
  • The sentiment is from the Better Together stamp set. This is such a fun and whimsical font.
  • Now let’s talk about my favorite thing on this whole project…the BEES!  These cute little bees can be found in the Touches of Texture stamp set.  It’s funny how such a simple little stamp can make such a difference on a project.  I think they make ALL the difference on this one.
  • I added Clear Wink of Stella to shine up their wings.

  • The inside sentiment is also from the Better Together stamp set.  This is a great set for creating sentiments on both the front and inside of the card since the sentiments coordinate.
  • Again…a few little bees don’t hurt either!

  • The box was created with there Window Box thinlits and I used the Layering Squares to create the windows.
  • That same sunflower fits perfectly on top.
  • A little birthday banner a couple more bees complete the box.  The birthday sentiment is from Happy Birthday, Gorgeous stamp set .
