Hap-bee Birthday with Craftin Desert Divas

Exciting start to the new year! I'm so excited and honored to be sharing my first post as a new DT Member at Carftin Desert Divas. Today I am sharing the Busy Bee Stamp Set. How cute can one stamp set "bee"?

I love to mix n match die cuts and stamp sets. I'm always asking myself..."How many different ways can I use this?". Sometimes I even fall onto a happy mess.

The flowers look like they are blooming right off the edge of the paper!
Partial fussy cutting before die cutting is a great way to add interest to any card. 

I stamped my scene onto X-Press It cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored the stamped image with COPICS(I've posted a list of colors below), laying the die down around the image and marking where I wanted to fussy cut, removed the die, fussy cut then die cut the stamped image with CDD Stitched In Circles, die cut the background papers using CDD Fancy Frames Dies, I inked up a honeycomb embossing folder using Avery Elle Pigment Ink - Mimosa, background paper is Doodlebug Sunkissed 6 x 6 Paper Pad. You can find links to all the products I used below.
Finished off with Pebbles enamel dots.

Here are the products I used from the Craftin Desert Divas Shop
