2RedBananas Week of Peeks - Party Bees will be releasing its new stamp sets on May 18th. For this "Week of Peeks" I decided to use Abbey Westemeyer's new set called "Party Bees" to make a card. You can go to 2RB's blog to see more samples, or visit the other DT members' blogs and see what else they're showing peeks of:

The card base is a white DCWV gatefold card with a block of Wild Saffron DP by K&Co on either side of the opening. The flowers are stamped on Basic Grey DP with a rhinestone center and the stems and leaves are made from ribbon. The bee's body is stamped on watercolor paper and the stripes on the body have yellow and black flocking from Doodlebug Designs. The wings are stamped on a transparency with Stickles on the back.

Again, I decided to do some experimenting with this sneak peek and I had fun doing it. I guess I need to use more techniques when I'm crafting, instead of falling back on the same ol' same ol'.

Hope you'll stop by 2RedBananas' blog to see more peeks this week, and don't forget to go to on Monday to see the new stamp sets.


  1. Your bee is so cute. Really like the ribbon for stems!

  2. What a nice, summery card! Great job!

  3. VERY pretty! Love the bling in the center of the flowers. :)


Love to hear what you think!
