My first card uses several of the smaller image stamps from the set and a couple of greetings.
I chose a kaleidacolor ink pad with browns and oranges - traditional bee type colours I'm thinking. I randomly stamped the hexagon cluster, dotty hexagon and bee trails over a piece of white card stock. I die cut this into a stitched rectagle and matted it onto a pearlescent brown card base.
Next I stamped the greeting onto a smaller stitched rectangle and then stamped, glittered and hand cut three bees which I popped up onto foam pads before adhering to the card.
My next card is also in fairly conventional bee colours and has a mustardy yellow coloured card base. I also added an older Uniko stencil into the mix.
I used distress oxide ink through the Uniko broken lines stencil, moving it about slightly between colours. I then stamped three inspirational greetings from the Bee Happy stamp set.
I finished off the card by once again stamping, glittering and hand cutting a trio of bees which I placed next to each of the greetings.
My final card for today steps right outside of natural bee colours and uses some hot pinks. Well why not? I rather like the idea of a hot pink bee!
This is my most CAS card using the Bee Happy stamp set and I started by stamping in melon mambo the largest stamp from it - the hexagon heart. I then coloured it with matching copic colours.
I stamped, coloured and hand cut just a single bee this time and added the dotty trail and a heart felt sentiment plus a strip of pink card down the left side to finish it all off.
