Honey Bee Stamps Close-Up + Cards + GIVEAWAY

Hello! I have been wanting to share a closer look at the most recent Honey Bee Stamps release for some time now… and am finally getting around to doing it! This release is packed with creative and useful products. I not only give a closer look at each product, but share two unique card designs.

I hope this close look at this large Honey Bee Stamps release is helpful to you! I do these videos so you can see what the products look like in “real size”… and also to share ideas on how to use them. You can see the whole Honey Bee release HERE at Simon Says Stamp or HERE at Honey Bee Stamps. All of the individual products are linked in the thumbnails at the end of this post.

At the end of the video, I also share two shaped card examples using some Honey Bee products (SSS | HB). Be sure to check out the video to see how they were assembled.

My first card features the Honey Bee Mason Jar Card Dies (SSS | HB). I created the jar with Hero Arts Acetate Sheets and a silver cardstock lid. The stamps are from the Honey Bee Hi Honey Stamp Set (SSS | HB) and Honey Bee Bee Hive Stamp Set (SSS | HB).

When you open the card, you can see a gift card holder made with the Honey Bee Gift Card Pocket Die (SSS | HB).

I am a big fan of clear cards… and this one is especially fun!

My second card features the Honey Bee Frappe Shake Card Dies (SSS | HB). I had such fun assembling this. On the front I stamped a greeting from the Honey Bee Shake It Off Stamp Set (SSS | HB).

Inside, I used the Honey Bee Gift Card Pocket Die (SSS | HB) to hold a coffee gift card.

  1. I justs love all the little bees in the jar (Honey Bee Mason Jar Card Dies)! You make some of the prettiest cards! I love watching all your videos too!

  2. I love the coffee cup and I am always on the lookout for gift card holders and the banner dies are great too…can’t pick one. But, if I must it’s the word dies with shadows. Don’t have any, but just love the look. All the products are pretty fantastic. Thank you for sharing some very fun ideas with this new release.

  3. I like the banners dies set. I have a hard time cutting small strips, so this is perfect! I also like the Sorry/sympathy stamps and dies. I am finding that I need those expressions more and more.

  4. I love that you not only show the products but gives us ideas on how to use them also. Thanks for the chance! My favorite are the sentiment dies and the alphabet dies. TFS

  5. I really am loving all the new word dies and stamp sets, esp. the teacher one. I also love the frapp cup die and the jar dies from a previous release.

  6. Oh wow. So many awesome new products, especially the frapp cup die and the mason jar dies. Love what you created with them. Thanks for your inspiration.

  7. I love the banner dies. I hate cutting banner strips because I never get the sentiment perfectly straight so I can cut the strip after stamping but I never get it centered (with even borders top and bottom) if I cut the strip first. I love the sorry/sympathy set too.

  8. I love the cute cards! I’m always looking for creative ways to incorporate gift cards and you have some of my favorite ideas 🙂 I really love the Hi Honey stamp set. Those phrases are the sweetest 💕

  9. Wow, there are so many great products here. I have a few of their die sets with the two shadows and I really love them. I like the mason jar and frappe shake die sets and I agree that the beehive would make an awesome shaker card.

  10. There are SO MANY wonderful stamps and dies spotlighted here that it is truly difficult to narrow it down to a single favorite. (The words…like thankful that have the different shadow dies are terrific and there are several words with those coordinating dies!) But if I have to say one, I would pick the Cup die set that you used in some of your cards. (By the way I love the “hot fudge” you added to the whipped cream in the one design.) The dies are just perfect for Gift Cards as you’ve shown.

  11. The Bill the Bear stamp set is my absolute favorite from this release. He is so stinking cute. Thanks for sharing/making this video highlighting all the great Honey Bee products!

  12. I like a couple of them but the Honey Bee BILL THE BEAR Clear Stamp Set (and die) looked cute to me. I also liked the card you made with with Honey Jar with a pocket! The gift pocket die is sweet too 😉 thanks, con

  13. So many great things in this release I don’t know how to pick a favorite. Like the banners, the letters, the large words, the jar and some of the flowers.

  14. Your shaped cards are so fun, and I love the clear mason jar design! As for favorites. I really like the Mason Jar and Frappe dies, and the sweet Warm Wishes stamp set. Also NEED that Sympathy sentiment set.

  15. You always come up with so many great ideas! The shaker card is super cute! I just got some shaker stuff and am finally going to make a few cards for my students! Looking forward to it because of you! Thank you.

  16. This is another great release, thanks for sharing it and for the card ideas!
    Hard to choose, but I like the birds and the bees stamp set as well as the truly great friend stamp set.

  17. My favourite piece from this new range has to be the Honey Bee Mason Jar Die Set! It’s just so cute and I can think of a million cards to make with it! 🙂

  18. Jennifer, I love the ideas for the cards that you made! My two favorite stamps or dies from this release would have to be the sentiment tags, and the bountiful bunches of flowers! Thank you for sharing your ideas and cards with us!

  19. I love the clear cards too! This release has some very cute things. I like the Cosmos and the little bees in the Bee Hive set.

  20. My oh my! So many fantastic products, it’s hard to pick a favorite. All the dies & all the sentiment sets are on my wish list, but at the top of that list is the No Probllama stamp & die sets.
    Your cards are just adorable as always. That gift card die will be my new best friend.

  21. So many beautiful products, I truly love them all but specially the Mason Jar and Frappe dies, and the sweet Warm Wishes stamp set <3 🙂

  22. As much as I love the whole release I have to say (being as I am a flower lover) the Cosmos stamp set is so pretty! That would be my first choice. The stand alone dies are also right up there in my top faves.

  23. I love your mason jar card! Super cute!!!

    It’s a toss up between the bee hive stamp set with matching die cut and the birds & the bees stamp set for my favorite pick. Can you tell that I like bees?! 🙂

  24. I love these release close-ups so much! Thank you so much for doing them. The shaped cards are awesome…I have the gift card pocket die and have really enjoyed using it so far. I love Honey Bee!

  25. My favorite is the Sentiment Banners, it has a great price point and will save me time from cutting down banners to fit. I love the whole release. I just adore the “chocolate syrup” on your cards, what a great touch.

  26. Thank you SO much for taking the time to make this video! I loved hearing your thoughts and ideas on all of this new release – so helpful as I consider what I want to purchase in the future! My favorites from this release are the Hi Honey dies and the Sympathy stamp set! <3 Hugs!

  27. Thank you for the great video, the ideas I have stored in my mind because of it are boggling!
    The Frappe shake card die and the gift card pocket are two of my favorites.
    I can make milkshake cards at last!!
    Thanks for the ability to save our favorite videos!! But what if we save them all!! Haha

  28. Loved your video, I always do!
    Love the Honey Bee release and my favorite would be the scalloped rectangle dies, although I love the whole release. Thank you for a chance to win!

  29. So many neat products in this release! Hard to choose just one favorite. Definitely the mason jar die and all of the layered word dies. Especially the “Grateful “ one. 💕
