What’s all the buzz?  I stamped the bee from Backyard Basics stamp set and cropped it with a perfectly coordinating bee framelit.  Bee-utiful and simple!  Save 15% when you purchase the Backyard Basics stamp set and Backyard Basics Framelits Dies as a bundle.  See All Stampin’ Up! Bundle Deals!


  • What really makes this card “pop” is the use of Stampin’ Dimensionals for the Whisper White layer and the bee!
  • I cropped an oval frame using two sizes (the second and third smallest) of the Stampin’ Up! Oval Framelits and Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper.

  • Both the bee and sentiment (Happy Day stamp set) were heat embossed with Early Espresso Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I love the shiny, raised result.
