2 Ways to Use Simon's July Card Kit, Bee Yourself!

Hello friends! I always love when Simon Says Stamp releases their monthly card kits; the kits are always filled with amazing products that can be used together to make many cards. And the best part? Just a few additional supplies are needed to make some awesome projects!

Today I’m sharing 2 unique designs, using products from Simon’s new, July 2019 kit, Bee Yourself and a few extra supplies.

How I Made It

The first card I created with the kit started by adding one of the sheets of The Bee’s Knees patterned paper onto a Sea Glass, A2 card base. Layered on top is a stack of the new Hexagon Element die that Simon released last week; I cut that with the Sunshine cardstock, also included in the kit.

From the Bee Yourself stamp set, I stamped a pair of bees and a heart onto white cardstock, as well as white heat embossed a greeting onto black cardstock. The bees and the heart are colored with Copic markers, and I popped them up off the card with foam tape.

I added the sentiment at an angle and embellished the card with a few of the sequins included in the kit.

The second card I created features some more of those beautiful Bee’s Knees patterned papers on an A2 card base. I stamped the heart trail in Tumbled Glass Oxide Ink on white cardstock and fussy cut it out, layering it onto the pattern papers.

I also stamped and Copic colored a bee from the Bee Yourself stamp set, popping that over the heart trail.

Again I white heat embossed a sentiment from the Bee Yourself stamp set, which I trimmed into a banner and popped up off the card along the lower left corner.

The final touch on this card were a few of those fun, Buzzy Bee sequins!

I hope these two cards have inspired you to create with this BEE-utiful new kit from Simon Says Stamp! Be sure to check out the kit and see more inspiration using it over on the Simon Says Stamp blog!
