Bees Block

It seems an age since I last posted something here, although it is less than a week, and in that time I have been a busy bee. All work related as I get ready for a very intense two weeks delivering some in-store cooking sessions for children during the Easter holidays. Consequently, I am shuffling in, once again close to the wire, with my entry for Sunday Stampers.


Yes, it is another Artist Trading Block! For once, I had a clear idea of what I was going to do so was able to whip this up earlier this afternoon and make it past the finishing post. I’ve used the Sizzix cube die to create the base, which is cut from chipboard and painted black.



I’ve layered up black and white card and added stamping to the top layer. You probably recognise the small Carol’s Flower and the little bee, which are both by Stampotique.

I decided to keep the colour palette simple, just adding some yellow to the flower’s centre and the bee’s stripes. Each side is slightly different.


I added three extra flowers to a little glass vial on the top.

Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. So blasted cute, you have such an incredible imagination Lisette. This would be so cute sitting on a table, desk, etc. So perfect for Spring to welcome little buzzers. Loving this so much. I’d love to make one to put out for decoration when I hang out my bee stuff soon. Will see what I can find for flowers. Have a few stamps I could use along with couple bee stamps. Won’t be nearly as wonderful as yours but will give it shot anyway. Need to get myself some black cardstock. You sure have inspired me.
    Where did you find that tiny little glass vial you put flowers in? LOoks like might have had ink in it? Think I might have a silly thing for tiny glass containers/vials. Going to print this out so I don’t forget.
    How have you been? Hope it’s warming up over the “pond’. Has all your “delightful” snow melted? Sure hope so. Have great weekend

  2. Oh I love that blocks, and of course the Stampotique stamps on it, I love that monochrome effect, it even emphasises the beauty of their stamps more than coloured versions!

    • Thank you – half of me wanted to do the flowers in pink and the other bit (obviously my dominant side!) wanted to go with black and white with just a splash of yellow!

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