Funky Fossil May Release - Bees Knees


We have an exciting week ahead as we share new stamp sets which will be released on Sunday, 10 May in our store and on Hochanda during our two shows :)  Even more exciting is that two of the stamp sets that are included in this release have been designed by the super talented Donna Gray using images from her hand carved stamps.

Today we are showcasing Bees Knees which is an A5 stamp set featuring lots of fun images of bees, toadstools and flowers.  It is packed full of quirky character!

I have simply stamped and masked a number of the toadstools on to kraft card, coloured them in white and then shaded with polychromos pencils.  The sentiment is from another stamp set coming out in this release.  

On my next card I have used just the smallest toadstool from the set along with one of the punny sentiments.  I couldn't resist putting it in with the set :)  It is framed with the Dotty Circle Frame stencil. 

Finally I wanted to highlight the cool bees that come in the set.  As soon as I saw this bee I knew the card that I had to make with him!

I combined this smiley bee with our Happy Words stamp set and new Honeycomb Stitches stencil.  I shall link this card up at Time Out as the colour combo works well with the patterns in the inspiration photo.

I hope these cards have made you smile!  Check out the wonderful inspiration from Jane, Sam and Natalie.  They have been having fun with the set too :)

Here is the full set:

The stamps will be in store on Sunday and we will be back tomorrow with another new set.  See you then!
