Have you ever seen a stamp set that just makes you feel good? One that is a cutie and makes a statement at the same time? Well, that was me when I was flipping through the catalog, back when I first got it in my hot little hands, and came across the Bee Thankful Stamp Set. And, I am going to share it with you today. Here’s a look at the card I created with it.

This set is just a single stamp but to me it packs such an impact. I just love the big huge thanks done in such a fun font. Plus when you add in how it’s designed it’s just a fun playful stamp that can be dressed up or dressed down. I adore the little bee standing on the n greeting you when you open the card with a little flower.

It’s just a nice simple stamp set that is just sweet and fun. And, as I mentioned above allows you to dress it up or down depending on your needs. I adore the line art in this image that allows you to use your favorite color media to fill in the stamped image.

I had stamped the image on a piece of Whisper White cardstock (4 x 5 1/4) in tuxedo black ink. I wanted a good alcohol marker friendly ink because I knew I was going to color with my Stampin’ blends. The image was colored in using my Call Me Clover light and dark blends (for the word), Pineapple Punch light and dark with a little Daffodil Delight Dark (for the bee) to create a nice golden hue on the shadow side. And the light Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend for the flower. The flower was so small I didn’t add shading to it. And a little light pool party to add a little shadow on the wings and the color lifter to blend that line.

I did use my smoky slate Stampin’ write marker to create the drop shadow on the thanks. I went with the Stampin write marker here because I didn’t want to take a chance of the alcohol ink bleeding into the word thanks and creating a muddy word. And it was so soft and subtle it went so well as the shadow.

The card front was mounted on a piece of Call me Clover cardstock that measures 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. I just wanted a tiny border around the stamped image. I then added a very thin piece of Call me Clover cardstock (1/4″ x 5 1/4″) just a little below the words to look like an inlay. This also helped to ground the word but broke up the white space on my card front.

Thanks for dropping bye today I hope that you have liked my card. If you need/want any of the products you’ve seen today you can pick them up in my online store 24/7.

Happy Stampin’
