Queen Bee Slimline and Last Chance

 Happy Good Friday! I'm posting today because it is the 15th of the month and time for another Stamping Symphony blog hop. Our theme this month is saying goodbye to favourite retiring items. Just another couple of weeks before the end of the 2021/22 Annual Catalogue and the final farewell to some much-loved items in my studio. This card uses several retiring products I am most definitely going to miss!

How cute is that little Queen Bee made using the Ladybug Builder punch?? I couldn't resist giving her a necklace of bling fit for the queen she is! I used (of course!) Bumblebee card stock to build my bee and also for the background panel on my slimline card. I stamped several of the flower images from the Hello Ladybug stamp set tone-on-tone in Bumblebee ink. I am SO going to miss this beautiful golden yellow when it retires in a couple of weeks!

Another retiring item that will be sorely missed is the Daisy punch. I can't tell you how often I reach for that punch when I need quick flowers for a project! It is one that will live in my studio for years to come! Thankfully the Medium Daisy Punch is sticking around! Speaking of the daisies...did you catch the sneak peek of one of the new In-Colors?? I used the new Parakeet Party to create the leaves on both the large and smaller daisies. The large leaf is the image from the Hello Lady Bug set and is stamped in Parakeet Party ink on card stock of the same shade. Then I fussy cut them out to adhere to my card. The leaves on the smaller daisies are also stamped using the large leaf image, but, because I wanted a smaller scale leaf, I used the Strawberry Builder punch to punch the leaf shape out of the stamped card stock. The effect is a leaf that is the same shape as the large leaves, but in better scale with the smaller daisies. The Strawberry Builder punch is another one that will live in my studio for a very long time. The variety of shapes in that punch have SO many possibilities!

When it came time to embellish the sentiment banner, I really wanted something that would work with my black and yellow colour scheme. I grabbed some Playful Pets baker's twine, my dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends and went to town turning the black and white twine to black and yellow. It is the perfect finishing touch for this whimsical card!

I demonstrated this card in this week's Live @ Five video over on my Facebook Business Page. You can see the replay on my YouTube channel below. Check out the video description for all of the measurement for this adorable slimline card!
