Honey Bee Punch Art

I love a good punch! It’s double fun when punch art can be created with parts of the image used not as intended. The Snowman Builder punch creates snowpeeps…

but it also creates honey bees!

The honey bee tag was part of my VLOG home decor project. See my blog post about that project here.

Here is a link to my Youtube video showing how to create this fun little tag, suitable for beekeepers like me or anyone that needs a cheerful paper crafting surprise in their mailbox. I have my tag hanging on my vision board.

The Way to Goat stamp set is too funny!

I used a mix of Blends pens and Stampin’ Up! markers to ink the goats to color coordinate with the Snail Mail designer series paper. Love the mushroom prints in this pack! Snuck in the Layering Circles dies in 5 sizes to add impact in a coordinating color scheme.

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of Thinking of You projects with guys in mind. You may have arrived from Sandy Ward’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

The Color and Contour stamp set is a brand new set from the brand new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I used the sentiment on my card design. I have a pictorial tutorial for you today.

Two ice cream cone punched out shapes make the sentiment mat.
Rip a piece of the Ice Cream Corner patterned paper to create interest.
Flip a portion of the Cinnamon Cider cardstock back to create an easy fun fold.
Then attach the ice cream cone patterned paper over the liquid glue.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
