A charming Hostess Stamp Set called Pun Intended will be available in the new 2016 – 2017 Stampin' Up! Catalog when it is available on June 1st.

Although my card is just 3" x 3", it could easily work with a larger size.  A stamp from Gorgeous Grunge inked in Smokey Slate & stamped off provides some background texture for the main attraction.  The swirl of circles reminds me of the path a bee might fly.  The image  is courtesy of Project Life Memories in the Making (soon retiring) and is stamped in Bermuda Bay Ink.

 A strip of Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape adds a pop of color and breaks up the intensity of the swirls. A sentiment from the Pun Intended Stamp Set is embossed with White Embossing Powder on a strip of Basic Black Cardstock that is then cut with a Project Life Cards & Labels Framelit.  I modified the cutout by making it both narrower & shorter.

The bee from Pun Intended is stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black Ink & colored with a Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Marker.  After fussy cutting it, I popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  A trio of Rhinestone Basic Jewels adds the finishing touch.
