Today I’m sharing a card of a greedy bear trying to steal some honey from the hard-working bees! I thought Mama Elephant “FBA-Bear” dies would pair perfectly with Hello Bluebird “Bee Happy” stamp set ūüôā


First, I stamped the bees on some Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink. I colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut them. I added Wink Of Stella to the wings and some highlights with a white gel pen. I also used Glossy Accents on the glasses of one of the bees.

Next, I used Mama Elephant dies to die cut the bear. I used Canson Mi-Teintes paper for the body, kraft cardstock for the muzzle, and pink cardstock for the ears. For the paws I used “FBA-Monkey” dies.


For the cloudy background, I inked a piece of Bristol paper using Salty Ocean Distress ink and MFT “Cloud” stencil. Next, I blended Wild Honey Distress Ink and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink on a Bristol paper panel and used a die from Lawn Fawn “Stitched Oval Stackables” dies to cut a window. Then, I stamped the hexagons using the same Spiced Marmalade ink. The sentiment was white heat embossed on a thin stripe of black cardstock.


Last, I assembled everything. I adhered the cloudy panel to a card base and the hive panel to that, using foam tape. I glued the bear tucking him behind the oval window. I added Glossy Accents to his eyes and nose and, once it was dried, added some highlights with a white gel pen. I adhered the sentiment and the bees to the card using glue and foam tape.

I think this card turned out pretty well and I think it’s really cute! I hope you like it too!!

I’m entering this card into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Anything goes:

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
