Bee Mine

Welcome to 2014 Stamp Camps with Paperrose!  I’m looking forward to sharing new products, new techniques, and having fun with all of you!  We are dedicating our February Stamp to hearts – the hearts showing love and kindness, not the hearts that keep us alive.  Hearts Abound Stamp Camp will be held on Thursday, Feb 6th from 2 PM to 9 PM, Friday, Feb 7th from 2 PM to 9 PM, and Saturday, Feb 8th from 9 AM to 4 PM.  The cost is $12 for the 4 projects with all card stock, adhesive and tools provided.  It is helpful if you can let me know when you will be attending, but this is not required.  The more, the merrier!

Bee Mine Black 1Bee Mine is created using the new Hexagon Hive Framelit.  I made two samples – one in black and one in Cherry Cobbler,  Brown Sugar cs is the base for both cards.  Note the main bee in the lower half of the card.  Although this is an optional step, I think the bee solidifies the card. 

Bee only

The main bee comes from an older retired set and was stamped on Whisper White cs with Early Espresso ink.  The bee was then colored with Stampin’ Write Markers and cut out.  Embossing with clear embossing powder gives the shiny finish.  The smaller Brown Sugar – stamped bees come from the Collage Curio stamp set.  The “Bee Mine” message has been printed and is easily die cut with the new Banner Framelits set.

Bee Mine Cherry 1Here is the Cherry Cobbler sample that is shown without the main bee.  Note how the empty hexagons are filled with an assortment of embellishments – punched hearts, candy dots, rhinestones, buttons, brads and ribbon.  This is a fun card and every card created at our Hearts Abound Stamp Camp will be different and very individual.

Cherry Bee Mine inside 2I finished my samples with an old fashioned valentine doily;  A red valentine appears inside the black sample, and a white valentine as shown here, for the Cherry Cobbler sample.  Here,  I stamped a Vintage Valentine (retired), added a bit of color, and die cut the message with the Apothecary  Accents framelits.  You can, finish your card however you wish and valentine doilies will be available if you want to use them.  There is a box filled with embellishments for this card – lots of buttons, punches, card stocks, brads, etc.  Come and have fun!

Did you receive “Celebrate the Everyday” and the Sale A Bration brochures?  I sense some confusion as to the difference between the two brochures.

Celebrate The Everyday features items that are available through June 1, 2014.  Some items may be carried over after that date, but we won’t know the carry over items until the 2014-2015 Annual Catalog comes out.  The Sale-A-Bration brochure is through March 31, 2014 and features kits that can be purchased, and more importantly, items you can get for free with any $50 Stampin’ Up product purchase.  I will have extra brochures available at Stamp camp.  However, please let me know if you did not receive your brochures as I pay for these to be sent out. 

Hope to see you!  Blessings, Rosemary – paperrose01@aol.com – 630-759-3089
