Bee Mine Valentine Card

Isn’t the bumblebee the cutest?! Today’s card features the Bee My Valentine Bundle and the Bee Mine Designer Series Paper from the Stampin’ Up! Jan-Apr 2024 Mini Catalog. I’m using it as a Valentine’s card but the sentiment works for other occasions too. Perhaps as a fun anniversary card or just a way to express love. The cheerful Bee Mine Designer Series Paper provides the perfect background for the card. You’ll notice that the sentiment is cut with the Heart Punch…unfortunately after using, I realized the punch is retired. However if you don’t have a heart punch or a heart die, a circle punch or other shape to cut around the sentiment will work great.

Do you want to recreate the card? The cut dimensions for the cardstock and Bee Mine Designer Series Paper, as well as, an assembly video are below to make it convenient for you!

Cut Dimensions for the Bee Mine Valentine Card:
  • Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″, score/fold at 5-1/2″ (card base)
  • 3″ x 4″ Bee Mine Designer Series Paper: (3) 1-1/2″ x 5-1/4″; coordinating panel: 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″
  • Basic White Cardstock: 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″; 4″ x 5-1/4″ (interior)
  • Daffodil Delight Cardstock: scrap for bee
  • Petal Pink Cardstock: scrap for wings

As you notice, this cheerful card is simple to assemble! And the Bee Mine Designer Series Paper is the perfect backdrop. The card is a project from the January 2024 Monthly Card Class. You can find information on classes and Class Kits To Go at this link.

It’s a Zany Zoo Birthday

Can you believe it’s August! I know time seems to be flying by. Even though it’s August, I’m still sharing cards from the July card class featuring the Zany Zoo Bundle. This week’s card is a Zany Zoo Birthday Card. The whimsical card is appropriate for all ages but would be especially good for those hard to create preteen/teen cards. At least, for me those are the ages that challenge me when cardmaking. As in my last post featuring the Zany Zoo Bundle, the coordinating Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper is used for the characters. And since the turtle has the microphone (singing Happy Birthday), the Merry Melody 3D embossing folder creates a perfect base for the singer and his dancers. Below you’ll find cut dimensions and a video to help you recreate this fun card.

It’s A Zany Zoo Birthday Card Cut Dimensions:
  • Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ (score/fold at 4-1/4″ for card base)
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ (layering panel); scrap (die cut)
  • Basic White Cardstock: (2) 5-1/4″ x 4″ (embossing & card interior); scrap (sentiment)
  • Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper: fussy cutting & die cutting

The fun characters on this card make me smile!
