Yellow & Hexagons

I've made a couple of cards this morning for this week's hexagon theme at Less is More but the first one is also my "yellow" entry for this week's CASology challenge

I used the cute bee set from There She Goes and stamped one of the honey comb stamps in peanut brittle onto yellow card stock and cut it out to create a corner.  I stamped the big bee from the set direct to the card and coloured with copics.  Simply finished with one of the sentiments from the set.

For my second card I wanted to do some dry embossing - I love this spellbinders folder it's double-sided and does chevrons on the other side.  I opted to play with greens and oranges, so I decided to add more hexagons over the top of the embossed design using a MFT die using a dark green for the frame and orange dotted paper for the inside.  I finished with a die cut umbrella from clearly besotted and a sentiment from their April Showers set.


  1. Beautiful cards, I like both =^_^=

  2. Love your bee card Tara, fab and shiny bee, isn't he a cutie LOL And a lovely bright card to cheer you up in the rainy days, good job!! x
