More Twofer Bees

Hi there.  I hope you are doing bee-utifully!

I went wild with that bee stamp this month.

My onefer....

The sunflower is the die cut I used for a stencil for this card.
It was too pretty to toss and my UFO box is so full.

The background was a leftover from the other card on the same post.

I stamped the sentiment too high for that design.
It worked well here. 

I love when I can use those leftovers right away!

A dry embossed honeycomb and a little stamping made a quick
home for this bee.

We recently visited my hometown in Vermont.
It's been so nice to be in my beloved Green Mountains.
Here's the view from our deck.

It was so nice to be there and spend time with family!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Beautiful, very nicely done cards!

Your photo is really, Jim and I drover through Vermont on a vacation about 30 years or so ago. I have to say I remember it being a beautiful state!

Another two terrific twofers, Bonnie. Good thing you didn’t toss the sunflower cutout... it looks right at home on your onefer. Wonderful use of snippets. xx
And what a fabulous view from the deck.

Bonnie, it would BEE a shame to let these fab leftovers BEE left behind! Thanks for MORE darling Twofers!

Jo said...

Wow, incredible save! Such a nice appeal with the BG left over under the coloured stencil sunflower. That bee truly appreciates this yummy bloom, he nearly steals the show. The second one is a darn pretty note, love the layering and dry embossing. Two BEEautiful cards xx

Oh my gosh I love both of these. They are so cheerful and I just love that little bee. I was looking for one the other day and didn't have one. That sunflower is gorgeous and love the clean design of the embossed honeycomb pattern. These are wonderful, Bonnie!

What a gorgeous sunflower die cut Bonnie and love the way it is coloured, and then the dry embossed honeycomb on the second with the strip for the sentiment both make great backgrounds for your very pretty bee to buzz about on. x

Pat said...

Sorry I also meant to say that I love the photo of Vermont, the mountains look so beautiful and the whole scene looks idyllic, and great for you to spend time with your family. x

Another wonderful set of twofer bee cards, Bonnie!
The sunflower die-cut is beautiful with the soft dot background. I can't believe these were already in your stash. They look like they were specially made for this card. The placement of the bee and the sentiment is perfect.
The dry embossed honeycomb of the second card adds so much interest to this CAS layout.
So glad that you had a wonderful time with your family in Vermont. Home sweet home...
