{Paper Smooches Video} Bee-cause I Love You

Hi, everyone! I'm back with another video featuring the new Bees Dies from Paper Smooches. These bees already exist in stamp format in the Lots of Love stamp set so I store them together. It makes sense for me to find them together when I think of bees with hearts.

These bees are so cute and definitely make it easy to create a focal point on cards and tags. If you've already watched the video, you'll know that I had a couple of accidents which made a mess of the panel. I was able to salvage all the watercolouring I had done by adding embellishments in the two corners.

I went from a planned clean and simple design to an artsy card with splatter, doilies, enamel dots and patterned paper!  I tend to recycle a lot of projects when they aren't going my way but this card is proof that mistakes can be turned into something pretty.

I hope this card gives you ideas to get a head start on your Valentine's Day projects!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Well isn't this all kinds of brilliant! The bees are adorable, and the mix of die cut and stamped works so well! And I really wish my crafting *accidents* could turn out this well. :D
