Hey Y'all!!! Did you know that Honey Bees can fly between 15-20 miles per hour. A single colony can contain up to 60,000 bees! What?!? A single worker bee produces about .083 of a teaspoon of honey. Guess that's why it takes so many bees. They can visit up to 2,000 flowers per day. Amazing creatures. These particular bees don't come from nature but from Honey Bee Stamps. And today they are making lots of honey!!! You can see it dripping everywhere. Delicious!
I LOVE these little honey bees. Honey Bee Stamps has several stamp sets and dies. I've used the Busy Bees Stamp Set & Honey Cuts, the Bee Hive Stamp Set & Honey Cuts and the Bee Hive Layering Honey Cut.
Don't you think it's easier to collect the honey if the hive and bees are already in the jar? Haha! Me too. So I cut the jar from Honey Bee Stamps Mason Jar Card. They all just fit perfectly. Looks like a couple are trying to escape. Maybe I need to put the lid back on. I cut the two sides of the mason jar apart and used an exacto knife to trim away most of the center of one side. Cut a second half o the jar with window sheets and glued it to the card I just trimmed. Used foam adhesive strips to create a shaker card with the hive, bees and flowers inside.
Colored the bees and flowers with Copic Markers from Scrapbookpal.com. Matched the copic marker colors to sold cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey. Used Pool Play, Summer Days, Haystack, Pineapple Smoothie, Watermelon Fusion & Beach Ball.
