Hello friends! Today I'm sharing a couple of cards with the July 2019 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit, Bee Yourself! I am sharing two cards featuring stamping the Bee Yourself images on the Honey Bee Stamps patterned papers and coloring over the patterns with Copic Markers. This is a great way to create a card with no fussy cutting, masking, etc. I love this technique! Please share with me what you're making with the July Kit. I can't wait to hear!

Stamping images on patterned papers and coloring those images in over the pattern is one of my favorite ways to get around not having coordinating dies. Or maybe I just don't want that white outline around the image for whatever reason. Fussy cutting is my personal least favorite technique. I know some of y'all excel at it but, friends, it is not my spiritual gifting. At all.
Fortunately for those of us who prefer not to fussy cut stamped images, many of the Honey Bee Stamps The Bee's Knees 6x6 patterned papers from the July Kit are easy to stamp and color over! Yay!
I started by stamping images and greetings from the Bee Yourself Stamp Set over the Honey Bee Stamps The Bee's Knees 6x6 patterned papers using Gina K Amalgam Ink. The images were colored in with the following Copic Marker colors:
Bees: W5, W6, W9, Y11, Y08, Y19, R21, BV31, BV34
Hearts: R24, R46
Once the images were colored, I trimmed the patterned paper down to 5 1/2" on one side and 3 3/4" on the other. Another paper from the kit has these awesome black wonky scallops. Instead of die cutting a scallop border, I instead trimmed multiple strips. I matted the stamped and colored panel on these strips. I love the wonky scallop borders! I adhered the backgrounds to white side and top fold card bases.
Detailing was added to the bees with black and white gel pens and Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard. Glossy Accents was added to the bee's noses and the hearts.
The Hexagon Die was die cut from Sunshine and Black Cardstock (from the kit) as well as patterned papers from the kit. The patterns were inlaid into the cardstock outlines to fill in some "white space" on the desgins.
Each card was finished with Buzzy Sequins from the kit!
