Samantha’s Sweet as Honey Card

It’s the last day to get this great free gift with purchase, You’re a Keeper! This cute beekeeping bear is only available until 11:59PM Pacific time tonight, May 26, while supplies last. Get your set today exclusively at

Samantha‘s bee-utiful card mixes old and new with Hive Five, Honeycomb Backdrop and Honeycomb Stencil and our classic How You Bean? mason jar! The result is “sweet as honey”!

Samantha created a pretty honey jar cutting it from Watercolor Wishes paper, then stenciling the honeycomb with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink. Then she used Stripes ‘n Sprinkles paper behind the Honeycomb Backdrop before adding Hive Five bees and flowers from Spring Flowers Backdrop.

Then she added the final touches with the sentiment embossed in white on black cardstock and some Black Tie twine! So pretty!

Thanks so much for inspiring us today, Samantha! I love that honey jar!


Thanks so much for visiting, have an amazing day!

Design Team Inspiration

The design team has made the most amazing samples! Remember to click on the person’s name to leave these wonderful DT girls some comment love!

 Kara‘s Hive Five card is so brilliant! She used the Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag as an element in a bee-utiful collage! Her greeting is so clever, blending Oliver’s Stitched ABCs with an altered Happy Heart Day Line Border! And her Honeycomb stenciling on the letters and hexagon tag adds another layer sweet fun!

Tammy created an amazing trio of amazing bee-themed projects to inspire us!

Tammy inked the Honeycomb Stencil on a square panel. Then she cut out the window using Outside In Stitched Circle Stackables. She brought in the branch and leaves from A Bug Deal as a place to “hang” the beehive. And then she created the cute tag without a shaker, filling the hexagon shape with another beehive and busy bee from Hive Five!

The Den Sweet Den bears are so perfect as companions for the busy bees and honey of Hive Five! Tammy’s Platform Pop-Up card lets them savor the sweetness in 3D style!

Marine‘s slimline card is so sweet! Sweet as honey! She included A Bug Deal branches for the bears to pursue their love of honey! Just so clever!

Megan cooled down the warm honey colors with a beautifully stenciled honeycomb background that is so pretty in teal! I love the honey-dripped Henry’s ABCs and the Sparkle Glaze accenting bees’ wings!

Melissa created her adorable card in bold honeybee colors! I love how she used black to frame the hexagon shaped vignettes and as a layer in the design! It looks so striking and really focuses on the cute, Hive Five elements!

Elise‘s card is so colorful and sweet! I love how she stenciled the honeycomb to ground the sweet Hive Five assemblage. Then she created a punny birthday greeting using Finley’s ABCs.

Latisha‘s design is so sunny and cheerful! She used the hexagon frame from the Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag die set to frame the beehive and queen! The Honeycomb Stencil creates sunny pattern in the background.

Melissa’s Platform Pop-Up scene is so whimsical, featuring just the sweet images of Hive Five! She used the pretty patterned paper of Stripes ‘n Sprinkles for the Platform Pop-Up.

Audrey‘s backdrop is so clever! I love how she included Paint Splatters along with the Honeycomb stenciled in golden honey colors!

Grace took advantage of the hexagon shapes in the Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag set to make little scenes that are so sweet! She combined the stencils, shaker gift tag and of course, those smiling bees in a fun colorful slimline design!

The greeting is so punny with a mix of Henry’s ABCs and Scripty Happy!

Grace also created a standard size card using the same hexagon design from the Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag set! This time she made them shakers to fill with Chunky Glitter!

And then finally, Grace made a sweet Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag to coordinate with her cards! It’s so sweet and perfect to say Happy Bee-Day!

Lynnette‘s birthday design is so sweet! I love how the Stitched Scalloped Border die mimics the lid of the honey jar. That is just so clever and fun!

It’s so good to be queen, especially on your birthday with this adorable card by Yainea! She added so much great texture by using White Stencil Paste with the Honeycomb Stencil. Then she brought in gold sparkle cardstock for even more royal bling!

Caly used honey-soaked color to stencil the honeycomb on the Stripes ‘n Sprinkles background. The she created a Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag and filled it with Chunky Glitter. The Hive Five bees, beehive and honey jar add so much cuteness!

Elena used the length of her scalloped slimline panel to spell out a punny message with Cole’s ABCs! She created a lovely backdrop for the bees and beehive with honeycomb shapes some she stenciled and others die cut using Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag! Love those smiling little bees so much! They are so adorable!

Nichol‘s card is so sweet, stenciled to perfection, and her no-line coloring is the bees’ knees!

Nichol also stenciled the honeycomb on the envelope and made a sweet shaker gift tag to complete her coordinating set!

Kara thought outside of the beehive to make this fun birthday design! She selected a color combination of Cilantro, Peacock, Blue Jay and Storm Cloud to cut out the hexagon shapes from Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag. Then she arranged them in an eye-catching pattern before adding the Scripty Happy birthday greeting! On the envelope she continued with solid hexagons and a Magic Messages birthday sentiment.

Chari‘s birthday card is so adorable and totally fit for “the queen bee” on her birthday!

The Hello Sunshine greeting from Magic Messages looks so awesome framed in the sunny stenciled honeycomb!

Mindy‘s cards are so simply bee-utiful! On one she stenciled with warm honey colors and then on another she created a fun rainbow with Honeycomb Stencil!

The pretty flower and smiling bee look so sweet with Mindy’s lovely rainbow of color! Be sure to check out THIS video to watch Mindy create this beautiful card.
