12 bees of Christmas – Day 8

Between now and January 6th I am sharing some little bee related projects – the 12 Days of Christmas with a Mrs Beez twist. I hope you enjoy them.

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…


…eight bees a-snowing,

Seven bees a-swimming,

Six bees a-partying,

Five gold bees,

Four holly bees,

Three King bees,

Two snowman bees

and a santa bee with a beehive.

Recipe – Picked Raspberry and Salty Ocean distress inks, silver ink, white embossing powder, white gel pen

I coloured the card with the distress inks using an Inkduster. The bees were stamped in silver and then heat embossed using white embossing powder. I doodles some extra snowflakes and the border with a white gel pen.


Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. On the eight day of Christmas my true love gave to me eight bees a snowing? Can’t you milk bees then? Well, in that case, how do you get honey?

    Beautiful creation, love these colours.

    • Thank you Roberta – it took three goes before it turned out more or less how I’d imagined!!! I had to realise (twice!) glitter wasn’t necessary!!

  2. so cute, didn’t know anybody still used embossing powder. I haven’t seen it done except for at least one other of your posts. These are so cute. Would be really great looking put up on wall together. You deserve to be applauded for all your talent and excellent creations.
    Happy days

    • It’s funny as when I first started making cards it was all about heat embossing and, you’re right, these days you don’t often see it being used.

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
