Honey Bee Note Card Set with Blockheads Stamps

Hello Everyone,
Today, I have a mini note card set made with the set ATC-Honey Bee from Blockheads Stamps.

I found that this is a really versatile set.  I just wanted to keep stamping and stamping.  You know how I get carried away!!  I completed three cards with some of my stamped pieces.    Here is the first card.           Size: 3 1/2" x 51/2"

Materials List:
ATC Set -Honey Bee from Blockheads
   Oregano Adirondack from Ranger
   Butterscotch Adirondack from Ranger
   Raisin Adirondack from Ranger
   Tea Dye Distress Ink from Ranger
   Victorian Velvet Distress Ink from Ranger
Butterscotch Adirondack Marker 
Cardstock: yellow, brown, olive green, white, wine, and peach

The clover flower is stamped by inking the flower with Butterscotch, the stem and leaves with Oregano, and the tips of the petals with Raisin.  It is stamped on a pale yellow CS.  I added  Tea Dye distress ink around the bottom of the flowers.  Add some layers and the same yellow CS for the  card's base.  Here is a detail

And, take a peek at the inside.  The sentiment is from the Verses-Feel Better Set.

Card number two uses the bee and honey comb image.  Wouldn't this be a cute Valentine's Day Card???!!!!   I inked the honey comb with Raisin ink and the Bee with  a Butterscotch Adirondack Marker.  I stamped on White CS.  Size: 5" x 3 3/4".

The sentiment is stamped with Raisin and Butterscotch.  "Bee" is cut out added to the card top.   Again, I added Tea Dye DI.    The last card uses the honey comb image.  But this time I stamped the large flower with Raisin ink; cut it out and added it to the card front.  Size: 4 1/2" x 3 1/4".   This Sentiment is from the Verses-Feel Better Set.

Here is a close up.  The shading is added with Victorian Velvet Distress ink.

City Crafter: Decorate the inside too.

4 Crafty Chicks: Summer in January

Whoa!  The power went out in the middle of writing this post.  Of course it was the coldest day of the year.  Got pretty cold in the house without any heat.  We got a big fire going in the fireplace and that took the edge off the chill.  The power came back  on around 1am.  So, I am up and running again!! Yea!  Finally took down the Christmas decorations yesterday.  I still have to pack up a few things, but other than that I am all done with that job.  I put out all Spring colors (pillows, table lines, etc....)  I am ready for Spring already.  LOL  Well, guess that's all for now.  Love ya.
