I’m not sure I’ve ever met a Stampin’ Up! bee image I didn’t like! Since my name means honeybee, I feel obligated to use it as my motif. (I wonder if stampers who come to my house know where to find non-stamped bees in my decor? Anyone?)
Many, many years ago, when I would bake and make jam and sell those items at craft shows, my business was called “Honeybee House.” This was back in the day before the web and before copyright-free graphics on media you could use (and before I had anything more than a 3.5″ floppy disk drive), so I “drew” my logo using Microsoft Paint. It was an excruciating process, but I used the logo on my business cards, tags, and jar labels for years.
How happy am to be a rubber stamper now? I admire the Stampin’ Up! artists so much and the other stampers whose work I copy or adapt:
Thanks to Dawn Olchefske for this perfect design! We inked up the inside of the back of the embossing folder — the wonderful Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Occasions Catalog — before running it through the Big Shot.
News Flash: I don’t think it’s supposed to be a secret … last week we found out that the stamp set Dragonfly Dreams will be in the Stampin’ Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. It seems likely that the coordinating Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies will also be available, but I don’t know that for certain. What I do know, however, is that if there are bundles that exist for current products, those bundles will not be offered again.
And if you can earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item with the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle and another small item, it seems like a good idea to act now!
