Bear with Honey

Good morning everyone! Monica here from Taylormadecards4u with a couple of fun cards using one of the new released stamps this month Bear with Honey.

Now I am typically not known for my "cutsie" cards, but this little bear is so irresistible how could I go wrong. I still wanted to add a little vintage flare, so I chose to work with browns and yellows for my two cards.

Sometimes the cutest cards are the simplest to make. I knew that I wanted to turn this into a "Honey Bee" theme so I sorted through my stash to see what I had.


  • So Suzy Stamp - Bear with Honey
  • So Suzy Stamp - Be
  • Stencil - Mini Chicken Wire
  • Distress ink - Walnut Stain
  • Paper Pad - Crate Paper - Flea Market
  • Spellbinders - Nestabilities - Circles & Scallop Circles
  • Martha Stewart - Trellis Chain
  • Bee rubber Stamp - Stampin up
  • Bee Printable - Ginasdesigns
  • Ribbon from my stash

What I did:

  • Stencil the base of the card using the mini chicken wire stencil and Walnut stain Distress ink
  • Punch out the trellis chain strip and adhere to bottom of card
  • adhere ribbon just above trellis
  • stamp Bear with Honey onto brown card stock and color as desired
  • print out Bee Printable and cut out note card desired
  • Using Spellbinders, cut out bee circle and matching scallop circle
  • adhere note card and bear image to designer cardstock 
  • adhere Bee circle using foam dot
  • stamp Bee image onto designer cardstock
  • Adhere designer cardstock onto base of the card
  • A piece of heart Sentiment - Bee-lated Birthday 
  • Decosse's Dynamite Doodles - Faith in Dreams
I turned this into a Be-lated birthday card with a sentiment I had from A piece of heart.

This card is similar, but different. There were so many fun printables on the sheet I downloaded I decided to make a little inspirational card as well.

As you can see, I used the same cardstock, but fussy cut the Bear with Honey  and adhered him with foam dots.  I added the sentiment from So Suzy Stamps Be. It kinda fit my Bee theme I had going on. 

I used a sentiment from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles called "Faith in Dreams."

Well, thanks for popping in. I sure hope that you like my cards I shared with you.
