I have been doing Product Release Close-Ups for a few years now. Many of you have said they are very helpful… helpful in deciding if any of the products need to be added to your crafty stash. Well, I decided to change things up and instead do a Product and Card Close-Up… sharing a few simple card ideas, too. I hope you like it!

This is a large and *fabulous* release from Honey Bee Stamps… so I know it may be overwhelming. I am hoping this video helps you get a better look at the products and how they may be used. You can find all the products HERE.

Here are the quick and simple cards I shared in the video.

I really like the the word die sets in this release. They include three dies that layer together perfectly. This first card uses the Honey Bee Hugs Die Set. I created the background with the Honey Bee Hexagon Solid Stack Die Set and a Spellbinders Tan Embossing Mat.

All of these large word cards use glitter paper from the Glitzy Cardstock Glitter Paper Pad. I really like the colors included.

Here we have the Honey Bee Yippee Die Cuts on top of a background made with the Honey Bee Hexagon Cover Plate Middle Die and Honey Bee Hexagon Cover Plate Stipple Die.

The Honey Bee Congrats Die Set is great for celebrating any occasion. This card is going to a friend who reached her weight loss goal!

The last large word card showcases the Honey Bee Hello Die Set in green. For the background, I used the Honey Bee Hexagon Stitched Stack Die Set and Spellbinders Tan Embossing Mat. Check out that texture!

The Honey Bee Stick With Me Stamp Set is such fun… especially with the Prickly Sentiments Stamp Set. I layered two Honey Bee Hexagon Cover Plate Top die cuts for the background…

My favorite of the stamp sets in this release is the Honey Bee Blah Blah Blah Stamp Set. The sentiments are a riot and so encouraging! I used it on this set along with the Honey Bee Blah Bunny Stamp Set. In the inside it say, “life happens. Stay strong.” 🙂

  1. Oh no! I realized that the congrats and the Yippee are not in the same group of dies… seeing that info I must say that the Yippee has to win my vote for favorite new item, that and the stamp to go with it… Hurray would be another great one, but, they didn’t ask me for opinions!!
    Love the new bee things, I may have to splurge soon so I can play with them!!

  2. My favorites dies arethe words with the shadows, the hexagon plate (all of them) and, of course, the blah bunny. :o)

  3. OMG! Why do I love ALL the things in the release? I hate when that happens! My favs are the cover plates and the Blah Blah Blah stamp set. But I “need” one of everything!

  4. This was just too hard to pick, but I love the Hexagon Background Dies – I want all 4 of them!! You make it all look so easy. They were so popular they are sold out 🙁


  5. my favorite set would be the blahblah blah set -it has so many sentiments that I don’t see in any of my sets.

  6. Amazing release! It’s so hard to choose one… I adore the Hexagon background dies, but I think the Blah Blah Blah would be the most useful, seeing it put a smile on my face and that’s always a good sign 🙂

  7. HI Jennifer, as always. You make to most gorgious cards. I love how you made these clean and simple designs with the new Honey Bee stamps and dies.

  8. I really LOVE Honeybee Stamps products. I am lucky to have some of the sentiments and dies yay!. I would buy so many more products but it gets so costly to buy from the UK. I hope one day we can get them over here as I am such a fan. Hard to believe they have only been going for 2 years as there are so many great products in their range. Wishing them a very Happy Birthday and many more years of success :-). Like your new format of video Jennifer, thank you!

  9. I am always looking for stamps with Bunny’s because of my name being Bunny and I was born on Easter so I love the blah blah bunny stamps

  10. I love what you did with the word dies!! My favorite from this release is the prickly sentiments.

  11. You always have so many inspiring techniques that you show in conjunction with stamp releases. Love your videos. I laughed when I saw the Blah Blah Blah stamp set. Those are so funny!! I have to have that set!

  12. Amazing release! So hard to choose from the Honeybee Stamps. Really like how big the Die cuts are, awesome would love them. Wish we had them over here in Canada but never seen any over my way. Jennifer thanks for all the inspiring techniques you have shown on your website, learned a lot from watching thanks a million for sharing all your ideals.

  13. Wow cards, Jennifer! Those cover plates are so unique and you give lots of great ideas for using them. Thanks!

  14. The Hexagon Cover Dies are my favorite … but I like all the new products … especially the Bunny Blah stamp!

  15. I love the Honey Bee Hexagon plates. not sure which one you need for the best honeycomb effect, but they look great!

  16. Love the word dies with shadows especially that dotted shadow. That’s awesome! Also love the hexagon cover plate dies with the stipled die too!! Great release!!!

  17. Well, this is hard! I like so many of the new releases that it makes it difficult to chooses a favorite. I would have to say it’s between the Blah and the Prickly sentiment sets. I love the sassiness of the Blah stamps but have cactus stamps that need the sentiments from that! Soooo, I guess it would have to be…uhh..ennie menie minie mo…uhh. Blah, Blag, Blah. No! The Prickly ones! Help!

  18. I was just informed by a much younger person that I misspelled something above! It should be Eeny, meeny, miny, moe. Just didn’t know the phrase had a proper spelling!

  19. So many awesome things, I love the word dies with the shadows and the blah blah blah set is too funny, the cover plates are amazing!

  20. My favorite is the busy bees stamp set. It is so adorable and has a little of everything.

  21. That honey bee busy bee stamp is so cute! I hate bees but love them in a stamp form <3

  22. I love the Honey Bee “Hugs”, its very different, I love the font and the fact that just one word can make the card amazing, although I have to say that the honeycomb background is fab. All these stamps and dies are so good because they are original and classy and perfectly “BEEutiful”

  23. I ordered the whole honeycomb set for $64.95. Received the bill from PayPal on credit card that was on May 3rd I have not received and cannot get any response from Melissa Left her my phone number. I do not know what to do. Have never had problem like this before. Any suggestions

  24. OMGosh, I simply adore those triple stack words. Yippee is my Favorite!!! Another thing on my purchase list!! I have to stop coming onto your blog Jennifer I am buying way too much, and last night I have to tear down my craft room and rearrange to make room for all the new techniques that I have learned from you. I am simply inspired by your videos. You are very talented!

    Thanks for doing your job so well!
