Bee Happy Anniversary

Hey crafty friends - I'm back with an anniversary card for a friend and her hubby who love bee themed stuff. I've made them other cards with bees but I really had fun with this one!

Supplies: Paper - Neenah white, Paper Studio solids
Cut & Emboss - Momenta Bee Happy
Dies - Spellbinders Hex Kaleidoscope Slimline
Stamps - Hero Arts Everyday Sayings
Other - Crystal Stickles, Stamp-on-it vellum,
Pink and Main enamel stickers,
Taylored Expressions Pineapple ink,

Momenta (I buy at Hobby Lobby) has some fabulous cut and emboss sets with a ridiculously low price. Plus I got the Bee Happy on special 40% off when I was out shopping last month - yay! Still working off Let's Squash It's theme to emboss non paper, I embossed some golden vellum with a white panel behind for stability. Because the vellum piece was a smaller layer, some edges embossed into the white so I didn't really want to use it alone (suppose I could've trimmed it off, oh well). I simply colored the raised areas and used it behind my vellum for some interest.

The set comes with the hexagon, sentiment die, bee and some flowers - so fun. I had just rec'd my August Spellbinders kits and the Large Die has some hexagons - a bit bigger than the Momenta set but I just trimmed one of my test cuts. Thought the yellow would be fun with my gold vellum. The little Happy strip used to be Happy to be Alive - I cut the happy off of sentiments I won't use! I die cut two bees and backed the bodies with yellow and the wings with vellum, adding Stickles to the latter.

I'm adding this to Darnell's NBUS Challenge 29 since both my Bee Happy and Hex sets are getting first play today. I've already maxed out on entries to the current Let's Squash It!! Challenge but check it out if you've embossed anything unusual - you have til the 31st to play!

Thanks for stopping!
