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.” 🙂
