Instructions: Cut cream cardstock to 6 x 9 1/2", score and fold at 4 3/4" to create card base. Stamp honeycomb pattern in Buttercup ink onto the top right and bottom left of card base. Use from HCD2-7189 Eyelet Rectangle & Basics Die to cut opening into card base at an angle. Diecut a coordinating eyelet rectangle border from blue paper within the paper collection. Diecut honeycomb pattern from within paper collection too. Sponge outer edges of card base with Buttercup and Sepia ink. Use the same colors on the honeycomb pattern. Sponge the edges of rectangle border with Forget-me-not ink and attach directly onto the card base around the edges of opening. Carefully tear apart the honeycomb pattern at an angle into half and attach onto the top right and bottom left of card as pictured. Attach a bee bungalow scene panel onto the inside center of card.

Stamp the honey maiden from HCPC-3829 Honey Bee Maidens and bungalow from HCPC-3830 Honey Bee Bungalows stamp set in Colorbox Dark Brown ink onto white cs and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp the floral spray from HCPC-3828 Garden's Edge Coneflower and tiny carnation from HCPC-3806 Small Camelia Carnation stamp set in Archival Black ink onto white cs and diecut with coordinating dies.

For detailed color application, use the Stack and Store daubers along with the following inks to color. For the bee maiden, use the Buttercup, Sepia, Cactus Flower, Pink Peony, Vivid Chartreuse and Forget-me-not. Use all the same inks except Cactus Flower and Pink Peony to color the bee bungalow. For the flowers and leaves, use Cactus Flower, Vivid Chartreuse and Buttercup ink. Cut apart bee sentiment, sponge edges with Buttercup ink. Use the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit to shape the tiny blooms, leaves, bee bungalow and bee maiden. To allow for added dimension, cut into bee wings and skirt.

Cut apart the leafy sprays into a couple separate pieces. Use glue and dimensional adhesive to attach everything onto card as shown. Use Dries Clear glue to add a touch of glitter over the flowers, leaves and rest of card as desired.

Watch this video for shaping and coloring tips and techniques on the Backyard Blossoms flowers: https://youtu.be/swO34-n1HNc.

Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Finished size of tag is 4" x 8". Cut patterned paper to match manilla tag, ink edges with bright tangelo ink and glue to tag. Punch hole and attach a yellow eyelet. Add some seam binding to tag.

Using honeycomb die, cut a border from yellow cardstock and trim edges with scissors, using same die, cut the honeycomb shape from fun foam and cut apart with scissors, the foam will be used to give the cardstock dimension when gluing to the tag. Add glue to the foam and adhere to the back of the cardstock honeycomb diecut, add glue on the foam and glue to the tag as pictured.

Stamp the images and flowers on watercolor paper with Onyx Black Versafine ink, cut with coordinating dies. Color images with Zig Clean color brush markers or your favorite watercolor paints. Shape all pieces slightly using the flower shaping kit. For the flowers I layered 4 of them with a second layer of petals to give them more dimension.

Glue flowers and all images with foam dots for dimension. Apply Lion's Mane glitter to the petals of the flowers, Shell White glitter to the wings of the bee girl, and Redlands elements to the center of the flowers as pictured. Add a few bead stamens and attach a couple of charms to the seam binding.

For more tips on creating with the Sweet as Honey collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/89nlTDw3kOE.

Instructions: Click here to see a larger photo of this project. Cut this SVG file of the house in any color you like! Put it together as the instructions will tell you, ink all the edges with the Vintage photo distress Ink to make it distressed. Then I used a piece of Packing material for the bottom, you can take a piece of flat Cardboard and wrap this in Green cardstock, cut a piece of the paper collection and glue this on top of the bottom, then place your house on top of it a little bit offset. Make a fence with the icicle sticks and Ink them with the Distress Ink. Cut a piece of a straw and Ink that too then glue it to the side of the house like a downspout, then you glue the fence to that so it will stand, on the right side behind the fence you can glue a dowel and on top of that place a wooden button, cut out a sentiment from the paper collection and glue this on the dowel.

Cut 3 bees from the paper collection and the Honey pot, put some 3D Crystal Lacquer on the wings and on the pot on the wings you can sprinkle some of the shard glass. Make a table with a wooden bead and a button on top and do the same for the seats but smaller, when the bees and the pot are dry put a piece of acetate on the back of them and glue them on the table and seats, place this in the garden. Put the other bee on a piece of acetate and glue him in front of the top window and decorate it with some green to hide the acetate. Use an old piece of a miniature Christmas light string (dollarstore) and cut 1 light off and glue that next to the door.

Stamp the Coneflower from the Blossoming coneflower set and the backyard Blossoms set and the Garden Edge Cone flower with Rich Cocoa on white cardstock, color them on top with Tangelo and then Sunflower yellow and a mix of Buttercup and blend this in each other, put some glue on the top and sprinkle the decorative sand on it for the pollen. Stamp the Tiny Long flowers from the Backyard Blossom set with the Rich Cocoa and color them with the Vibrant Fuchsia and the Leaf Green, cut them out with the coordinating dies. Place all the flowers in front of the fence and glue them to the fence, in front you can put some miniature train green, the pink flowers you can put them on the left side of the house, put some green in front of it and put the deer Button in front of it. Make a path with some decorative stones and you're done!

For more tips on creating with the Sweet as Honey collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/89nlTDw3kOE.

Instructions: Card size: 5 1/2 X 5 1/2". Start by making the base from white cardstock, I used a center-step template I found on the Internet here. Cut pieces of decorative paper (the plaid) to cover each space, including the inside bottom, then cut more decorative paper (blue with honey cone) a little smaller to place on top of the plaid. Cut a sentiment from decorative paper for the bottom. Glue all pieces to panels and set aside. Stamp "queen" bee, little bees, coneflowers, honey pot, little bungalow and the smallest sunflowers using black ink on white cardstock and die cut with coordinating dies. Color using Copic Markers, shape each with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit on the back side of all pieces. Use your fingers and squeeze the Sunflowers down into a cone shape. Using the border punch punch a strip of grass from designer paper. Use very thick glue to "build up" centers and then add Prills. Glue wires colored green inside and allow everything to dry thoroughly. Add a thin layer of transparent glitter to the wings of all the bees (use a sponge or paint brush to apply glue in a thin layer, make sure to rinse glue out of brush or sponge right away). After everything is colored and all glue is dry, it's time to put the card together.

Glue house to left side of center, coneflowers to both narrow sides, the honey jar at the far right bottom next to sentiment, the "Queen" at the top right of center and the sunflower/coneflowers next to the house. Cover bottom with a border of grass. Glue little bees on, some with acetate to hang off/hover over Coneflowers. Add Prills in various colors for flowers at bottom, around house, and in pots. Glue the tiny gold ball onto door for knob. Some pieces (the Queen, honey jar and some parts of some Coneflowers) are popped up with foam tape.

Inside the card: Cut the decorative border and cover the top with plaid paper. Glue down just the two ends/sides and the bottom to form a pocket. Cut the tag out of some coordinating decorative paper and stamp sentiment on it at an angle. Add a ribbon at the top and insert into the pocket made. See more photos here on my blog.

For more tips on creating with the Sweet as Honey collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/89nlTDw3kOE.

To see how to shape the Sun Kissed Fleur watch the tutorial here

Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Die cut your Gift of Love box base die 4 times using white cardstock, you will have 4 box sides, cut the sides so you are left with only the bottom sections. Fold along the bone fold lines on your side panels. Use a bone folder to get a precise fold. Top flap bends back and the side flap bends towards you, repeat 4 times. Glue or tape together (use art glitter glue or wonder tape) starting on the left and overlapping on each side so as to conceal all the joins to the center of your box. Using white cardstock cut 3 cross bars 3 1/2" x 3/4". Fold in each end 1/2" so you are left with 2 1/2" in the center. Adhere your three crossbars spaced evenly inside your box. Using your Sweetheart Borders Die cut 4 strips, cut down to 2 1/2". Adhere under the flaps.

From your Sweet as Honey Paper Pad, die cut all of the elements. Check out my blog here to see step by step photos. Decorate with stickles as crystal glaze as desired, let everything dry before you assemble the box. Cut 4 acetate strips 2 1/2" x 1". Adhere these under the bungalows. Cut 1 acetate strips 1" x 4" for the largest maiden. Cut 2 strips acetate 1/2" x 4" for the remaining maidens. I like to use acetate, so I can place my elements in just the right place.

Using the panels pictured on my blog cut 3 mats 2 1/2" x 2 1/2". I have used the fairy and then I have used the top of panels, the tree line and sky. Adhere to the underside of the box. Later you will be adding a piece of honeycomb to the left and right sides. Using the 3 tags pictured on my blog cut 3 mats 2 1/2" x 2 1/2". First tag I have trimmed the top and tag 2 and 3 I trimmed the bottom. Adhere to the front and side panels. Using the remaining panel cut 1 mats 2 1/2" x 2 7/8". From the off cut of the sky cut 1 mat 1" x 3" and using your Sweet as Honey set, stamp "you are Bee-utiful", trim it to a tag with a top and tail.

Select a blue cardstock from the Sweet as Honey Paper Pad and cut 1 mat 2 1/2" x 6 7/8". This will be for the back of the box to conceal all the joins, strengthen the box and give you somewhere to write your message. Using the Sun Kissed Fleur set stamp on white cardstock using Archival Jet-Black Ink. Using your Stack and Store daubers color your flowers with Cantaloupe Ink and your leaves with Peeled Paint ink. Shape with your Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Apply varying size pearls to flower centers. Select a yellow cardstock from your Backyard Blossoms Paper Pad and die cut 1 honeycomb piece using your Sweet as Honey die. Tear into 3 pieces, 1 for the front panel and 1 for the left and right undersides. Adhere the undersides.

Front Panel - Adhere your honeycomb top right corner, apply glue to the tip of your tag and half way, hold in place at the tip, push up and hold the center and curl up the tail, adhere your Sun Kissed Fleur flowers and leaves. Left Side - Using 3d adhesive adhere your honey pot, adhere your Sun Kissed flower and leaf. Right Side - Using 3d adhesive adhere your honey pot and dipper, adhere your Sun Kissed flower and leaf. Layer 1 - Adhere your bungalow to the front wall of the box not the first crossbar. Adhere a bee with only glue down the center so you can fold up his wings. Layer 2 - Adhere 1 bungalow to the right and 1 maiden to the left to the front of the first crossbar. Adhere 1 small Sun Kissed flower to the Maiden's hand. Layer 3 - Adhere 1 bungalow to the left and 1 honey pot with a bee coming out on acetate to the right to the front of the second crossbar. Adhere 1 small Sun Kissed flower to the top of the Bungalow. Layer 4 - Adhere 1 bungalow to the right and 1 maiden to the left to the front of the third crossbar. Back Panel - Adhere the patterned mat to the bottom, adhere the sentiment above. Adhere your largest fairy up the back. Adhere your bee to the left only with adhesive in the center and bend up his wings. Adhere your Sun Kissed flowers and leaves to the right side. Back of box - Adhere the blue mat to conceal the back in. Using 3d adhesive adhere your sentiment. Adhere your bee to the left only with adhesive in the center and bend up his wings.

This is what I love about a pop-up box, it lays flat, so when sending your box, you can create an envelope or bag, it will lay flat when flattened to the left or right; the layers will overlap to sit flat.

For more tips on creating with the Sweet as Honey collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/89nlTDw3kOE.

Instructions: The ready side fold card measures 6" by 8". Choose the paper from the designer paper collection and cut it using the outer most die of Eyelet Rectangle & Basics Die. Also cut a piece of vellum with the same die and further cut a honeycomb background using Sweet as Honey Die, aligning the same multiple times. Glue the vellum piece with an adhesive that dries clear on the edges of the printed paper and cut a form with the help of 4th largest die from Eyelet Rectangle & Basics Die. Discard the vellum from the centerpiece of pattern paper forming a vellum frame. Layer the frame using glue dots on the ready card base and glue the window piece directly.

Stamp the images of honey bee bungalows and honey bees from Honey Bee Bungalows Cling Stamp Set and Sweet as Honey Cling Stamp Set with black archival ink and cut them using their coordinating dies. Color all the images with Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers. Add dimensions to the bungalow images using glue dots.

Also, stamp the images from Blossoming Coneflower Cling Stamp Set and Garden's Edge Coneflower Cling Stamp Set with black archival ink and cut them using their coordinating dies. Color them using Archival inks with Buttercup, Cactus Flower, Leaf Green and Fern Green.

Once all the elements are ready, assemble the card as shown by adding dimension using glue dots. Finish the card by adding a sentiment from the paper collection.

For more tips on creating with the Sweet as Honey collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/89nlTDw3kOE.

Instructions: My card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2". Make card base and using one of the card fronts from the paper collection, cut out the oval center using the coordinating oval die. Cut a rectangle of contrasting paper and glue it to the center of the front of the card. Also pick another piece of the paper and cut out an oval and set that aside. Adhere the paper to the card front using dimensional tape. Make sure the rectangle piece of paper is showing through the oval cut out.

Stamp and, using coordinating dies, cut out the beehive, sentiment, flowers and bees. Use Rich Cocoa Memento ink to stamp everything except the sentiment and use Tuxedo Black for that. Color leaves using Dove Blender Pen and New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink. The beehive is colored using Dandelion, Cantaloupe, and Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and a combination of the Dove Blender Pen and daubers. Color the flowers with Teal Zeal Memento Ink and a dauber.

Shape the flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and then add Prills to the centers and set aside to dry. Next do the little bees. Add black glitter to their bodies and then add Crackle Paint to their wings and dip them into the Crystal Clear. Set aside to dry. Once dry curl their little wings up so it gives them a bit of dimension and looks like they are flying.

Glue the beehive house to the oval you cut out of the paper and then add the tiny flowers on either side of the steps. Add dimensional tape to the oval and adhere it into the oval cut out on the card front. Make sure to use enough dimensional tape so that the oval stands up above the card front. Decide where you want the little bees to be and glue them down. Glue down the sentiment piece and then tie a bow using the seam binding and adhere to the bottom corner of the card. Your card is ready to go.

Instructions: Score a 14" x 10" piece of white card at 7" and 3 1/2" to give you a 7" x 5" card base with a mountain fold.

Cut a black piece of card slightly smaller than 7" x 5" and adhere to the base card. Select papers from the paper pad and cut another slightly smaller rectangle to layer onto the black card. Use a 1 1/2" strip of the paper and layer onto a slightly thicker piece of black, then white card and adhere this strip to the base card using foam pads proximately 1/2 " from the front edge of the card.

Die cut the Large Intricate Swirl frame in black card and add the paper to the centre of this using double sided tape. Adhere to the front of the mountain fold on your card and sit it against the strip of card across the front base.

Die cut the centre piece from the Intricate Swirl Frames set and add to the card using foam pads.

Stamp and colour the Maidens and honey jar. Make two sets of wings and an additional skirt so that you can decoupage these and add dimension. Die cut and lightly shape the images and add to the card using hot glue.

Stamp in black ink onto the co-ordinating paper and clear heat emboss some Wildwood florals. Stamp another set of florals onto black card with versamark and heat emboss with gold embossing powder, add gold cosmic twinkles to the black flowers using a paint brush. Die cut and shape all the flowers.

See flower shaping techniques with the Butterfly Medley collection here

Instructions: I like to do all my die cutting, shaping and coloring first. Using a patterned yellow cardstock from the Backyard Blossom Paper Pad, die cut 1 honeycomb die. Stamp your botanical rose and leaves, I have used the 3 of the same size flowers and 3 leaves. Color your flowers with the Stack and Store Daubers using the Cantaloupe ink and your leaves with the peeled paint. Spray lightly with your mini mister and shape using your Deluxe Flowers Shaping Kit, add small pearl stamens to the center. Trim a light blue patterned mat from your Sweet as Honey Paper Pad 2" x 1 3/8" and stamp with the "You are sweeter than honey" sentiment using the Smokey Grey ink. Stamp your Bee using the Sweet as Honey Stamp set with the Espresso Truffle, color all over in Antique Linen and highlight the body with Wild Honey. Stamp your maiden once full and once just the wings section using the Honey Bee Maidens Stamp set using the Espresso Truffle ink, color your maiden using E50, E51, for the face, arms, legs, R20 cheeks, BG000, BG07 wings, W8,100 shoes, E51, E55, Y35 hair, Y35 bodice, Y35, Y38 stripes, 100 stripes. Fussy cut out the center of the wing section and color using the BG000, BG07. Adhere to main maiden so the wing can be folded upwards. Stamp the honey pot and house from the Honey Bee Bungalows in Espresso Truffle, color the honey pot all over in the Antique Linen, highlight the dipper with E55 and the honey pot with E51, Y35, Y38. Color your house all over in Antique Linen, color the roof in BG000 and highlight in BG02, highlight the windows, door and house shadows in E55, W6 cobblestones, BG02 planter, RV34, G21 flowers and leaves. Using Crystal Glaze highlight the honey in the pots, the roof and door frame and window frame on the house, the body of the bee, the stripes and bag of the maiden. Using stickles highlight the wings and bodice of the maiden, the flowers and cobblestones on the house. When the roof glaze is dry add a little stickles.

Cut your card base using the white cardstock 12 1/8" x 6 1/8". Fold your card in half, I like to run a bone folder over the spine of the card to give it a clean finish. Cut 1 white mat 2 1/2" x 1 7/8". Using a light blue card, cut 4 mats 5 3/4" x 5 3/4", 1 mat 2 5/8" x 1 1/8", 1 mat 2 1/4" x 1 5/8". Using the Patterned cardstock from the Sweet as Honey Paper Pad, cut 4 mats 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Trim the "you are Bee-utiful" sentiment from the pad.

Now you have all your elements done you can assemble your card. Adhere your patterned mats to the matching light blue mats. Adhere your card front, inserts and card back. Using 3d adhesive in the center of the honeycomb adhere down and now place a dot of glue in each corner and adhere in place. Using 3d adhesive adhere your maiden. Adhere your sentiment to its matching light blue mat and using 3d adhesive adhere slightly under your maiden. Using 3d adhesive adhere your house. Adhere your honey pot. Adhere your flowers beside the left side of your maiden. Adhere your bee and fold up his wings. On the inside left adhere your sentiment and adhere the honey pot to the left side. Highlight the coneflower centers on the card front with stickles.

For tips on using the Albums and Inserts watch this video: https://youtu.be/uThSFbPtnYE.

Instructions: Click here to view the inside of the album. Pick out the papers you want to use and cut out to fit on the album then glue down. On the cover piece I used one of the medallion dies to cut out the design before I glued it down. Be sure to determine where you need the magnets to be ahead of time so you can use the paper to cover them. Cut the dies and glue down where you like. The lace die cut was used as a border and the partial circle die was used as a pocket to hold two tags. The tags were cut out of the paper pack using the Luggage and Tags Dies.

Using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink stamp the flowers and leaves onto white cardstock then use the coordinating dies to cut out. Color the centers of the flowers with New Sprout Memento Ink then add Flower Soft to the center of the flowers and set aside to dry. Color the leaves with a dauber and New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink. Using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink stamp the honey jar and bees then use the coordinating dies to cut out. Color using a combination of the Dove Blender Pen and the daubers and Dandelion and Cantaloupe Memento Inks as well as Rosebud Memento Ink. The little bees are colored with Dandelion and Teal Zeal Memento Ink and the Dove Blender pen. Add glitter to the bee's wings and allow to dry. Once everything is dry you can determine where you want the decorative elements to be and glue them down.

I stamped the sentiment onto cream cardstock using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and used one of the honey comb shaped dies to cut out then I edged it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Glue it down and then add one of the little bees to the corner of the sentiment.

I didn't do a lot of decorating to the inside as I wanted to leave room for adding photos.

Adhere to the fully colored image, I used small pieces of 3D foam tape to add dimension to the skirt. Add a small flower to her hair. Using yellow Stickles, add sparkle to the wings and skirt. Adhere to the bottom right hand corner of the layout. Find and cut out the "You Are BEE-utiful" sentiment and flag one end. Adhere next to the Honey Bee Maiden.
