I had a fun night yesterday. After watching some shows, I went back stamping. Did I mention yet, that I love the Stampendous Bees? I knew they would look pretty on a Joy fold!ย  And since I am behind on sending out RAK’s and Thank you cards, I made several, all just a tad different.


I stamped the Bee trio on Shimmery white with black Palette ink. It has become my favorite ink for watercoloring. It works well with acrylics as well as rubber stamps. It is a true black and it doesn’t run!

I added it’s a bee-utiful day on the bottom with Karen Foster’s snap stampsย and Black Palette ink. I got the smaller and bigger version of those very affordable and versatile stamps. I love them. Now I can make any saying I want!

Next I colored the image with Marigold Morning, Cranberry Crisp, True Thyme, Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow and Bordering blue. Once it was dry I used Stardust Stickles and the Sakura Gelly Roll pen to add glittery highlights (which can’t be seen in the photo).

The patterned paper is Scenic Route from the Harvest collection. It works so well with the bee images. The colors are so rich! I used up both sheets and will have to order more from Joy!

If you look closely on the very front of the photo, you will see the inside image. I used the single bee holding a flower for that, doodled the same border around her white shimmery base and colored her in like the Bee trio.

  29. Hey Beate,
    I was just admiring this wonderful card and thought you should use a bee as your own little icon (Bee-ata). You did a wonderful job with this card and all of the others you have done recently.
    Thanks for all you do to inspire us all!
