Instructions: Cut a piece of cream cardstock at 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches and 1 piece at 5/1/2 x 8 1/2 inches. Score this piece with the long side up at 7 1/2 inches and 7 3/4 inches and fold these lines. The end piece is 1/2 inch, glue the piece that's 7 1/2 inch on the 1/2 inch piece flap, now you have a double card of 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches. Take your Intricate Swirl Frame die and cut this one out of orange cardstock and glue this on the front of your card. Take 2 straws and cut them in 3 different lengths and glue them on top of the card next to each other.

Stamp the large and small peony with the Morocco ink on white cardstock. Cut them out with the coordinating dies, color the large ones with Peanut Brittle in the center and very light Tangelo on the outside. For the small ones, use the Peanut Brittle in the center and the Buttercup Yellow on the outside. Lay them in the Flower Basic Shaping Mold, stamped side down and spray them lightly with water, then you can do another layer on top of that and spray them again, do the next layer and spray them, you can do 3 layers at the same time! Run them through your machine and shape them further with your Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. I used 3 smaller and 3 bigger petals for the big peony. Shape the 3 smaller ones with the stamped side down, and the 3 bigger ones with the stamped side up side up, glue them all on top of each other, make a hole in the center and put your stamens through - use 8 stamens for the big flower and fold them double. Use 1 bigger stamen for the smallest peony, make 5 of them.

Stamp the coneflower from the Blossoming Coneflower set and the Backyard Blossoms set and the Garden Edge Coneflower with Rich Cocoa on white cardstock. Color them on top with Tangelo and then Sunflower Yellow and a mix of Buttercup and blend these, 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 Sunflower yellow and the Leaf Green, cut them out with the coordinating die.

Stamp the Rose Vines and the Leafy accents with the Rich Cocoa on White cardstock, color them with a mix of New Sprout, Leaf Green and Distress Peeled paint, cut them out with the coordinating dies and shape them with the Deluxe shaping kit. For the Leafy accent you can use the Leafy accent mold to shape your leaves.

Stamp the Lush Lilac flowers with Versamark on vellum, sprinkle gold embossing powder over it and melt this with the heating tool, then cut them out with the coordinating die. Place them on your shaping mat and just press them in the middle, put some dots in the center with the Nuvo Dandelion Yellow.

Stamp the bees from the Sweet as Honey set with the Graphite Black on white cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating die then color the body with Sunflower Yellow, Buttercup and Peanut Brittle. Take your black marker and make the black stripes on the body and add some Crystal Lacquer on the wings.

Cut out the image of the bee with a scissors and add Shard Glass on top of it.  Cut 2 black stamens in half and glue them behind the heads like an antenna. Glue the large peony in the center and then start to make a nice composition with all the flowers you have made, cut some leaves and flowers apart and adhere them in between the other flowers. Glue the bee image on top of the large peony and add the small bees on some flowers. Glue some pieces of the string pearls in between the flowers too. Cut out a sentiment from the paper collection, mat on black cardstock with foam pads and adhere this on the right, upper corner.

Instructions: My card size is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". Make card base and cover with one of the card fronts. Set aside while you prepare the elements for the card.

Using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink Stamp the house twice. Using the coordinating dies cut out the house. Color the house using daubers and the Dove Blender pen and various colors of Memento Ink. I used dimensional tape to adhere the two pieces together this gives the house much more dimension.

Using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink stamp onto white cardstock the flowers. Using a dauber and Teal Zeal Memento Ink color the flowers and shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Add prills to the centers of the flowers and set aside to dry.

Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink stamp the bee onto white cardstock. Using Dandelion and Cantaloupe Memento Ink and a dauber color the bee and then cut out using the coordinating die. Add the black glitter to the body and the Crystal Clear to the wings. Set aside to dry. Once dry adhere the bee to the card front. Find a sentiment on the paper and cut out then adhere it to the card front with dimensional tape.

Decide on the placement for everything and glue everything down. The card is ready.

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 base measures 5 1/2" by 7 1/2". Cut a piece of watercolor paper measuring 5" by 7". Dab Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade on a craft sheet. Spritz them with water using a mini mister. Wet the watercolor paper and try painting a background using both the distress inks. Try building the layers of colors by heat setting in between all the layers. Once happy with the background, stamp the images from Blossoming Coneflower Cling Stamp Set using black archival ink.

Cut a background using Sweet as Honey Die on an acetate sheet. Use the background as a stencil and with the help of modeling paste, create some interest on the right-hand corner as shown. When wet, add Crystal Clear and heat set till dry. Add some black splatters with diluted black gesso for an extra interest.

On a smooth white cardstock, stamp few images of coneflowers and honey bees with black archival ink and cut them using their coordinating dies. Paint all the images using Zig Clean Clear Markers. Once all the elements are ready, layer all the images as shown and complete the card using a fussy cut sentiment from paper collection.

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

Instructions: I like to do all my die cutting, stamping and coloring first. Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink stamp the "you are sweeter than honey" sentiment from the Sweet as Honey stamp set on yellow cardstock from the Backyard Blossoms paper pad, die cut with the second smallest hexagon die. Stamp the bees on white cardstock using the same set and same ink, color using Antique Linen all over first, then Wild Honey through the center, use a black marker for the stripes, die cut with coordinating die. Apply stickles to the wings and crystal glaze to the body, when dry lightly spray with the mini mister and bend up the wings. Using your Memento Tuxedo Black ink also stamp the honey pot and honey dipper from the Honey Bee Bungalow stamp set on white cardstock. Color your honey dipper in Antique Linen, then highlight with Copic Marker E55. Color your honey pot all over in the Antique Linen ink, highlight the burlap using your E55 Copic Marker, color the honey section in E51, then highlight in Y38, die cut with coordinating die, apply crystal glaze. When your bees are dry, I like to what I call float them, cut a strip of acetate approximately 1cm wide, you can trim the length later, fold over the top about 1 cm to create a right angle, adhere your bee to the front side so when laid flat your bee is risen, repeat with all three bees. Die cut 1 black hexagon using the second largest die. Die cut 1 black honeycomb and trim down to size.

Cut your card base using the white cardstock 8 1/2" 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. In the center of the card, cut out the honeycomb die. Select a yellow patterned cardstock from your Backyard Blossoms Paper Pad, trim down 5 1/2" x 3 1/2". Cut 1 white mat 6 1/8" x 4 1/4".

Now you have all your elements done you can assemble your card. Adhere your black honeycomb die cut so it shadows your honeycomb from the card front. Adhere your yellow mat behind the honeycomb dies. Adhere your white mat to the card inside to conceal your patterned card. Lightly ink around the white honeycomb on the front using Antique Linen ink. Line up your bees where you want them, trim the strips so when they are adhered they will be concealed under the sentiment and the honey pot. Adhere in place. Using 3d adhesive adhere the black hexagon in the bottom right corner, make sure to cover your acetate strips, using 3d adhesive adhere the sentiment. Adhere your honey dipper on the left edge of the black hexagon, just the dipper the handle will float free. Adhere you honey pot to the left making sure to cover your acetate strip. You can play around with the back bend of the acetate as to how high you want your bees to sit. TIP: This is a great way to float a butterfly, flowers or anything you wish to look like it is floating in the air.

Instructions: Now take your hybrid ink and stamp the bees along with your bee house onto the watercolor paper. You can heat set if you would like but there is no need.

Next color your bee house using the zig clean color pens in coordinating colors and then color your bees. Once done use the coordinating die set and die cut all the elements and adhere to your card front to complete the look.

I was really drawn to the floral display on Uma's beautiful project. I never would have guessed that she used the poppy die set. Her shaping of the petals is amazing!! In contrast, Tracy's bees and honey is so cute! I love that flowers weren't used on this project. Nice work, ladies!!
