Happy Bee-Day - Double Trouble Challenge #52

This is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #52 "Die-lirious & Punchy", using Twisted Sister's Twist "Bees/Honeycomb" and partnering with Bitten By the Bug Challenge "Spring Equinox".  Bees are here...Spring has Sprung.  Sought out one of my favorite stamp sets for the honeycombs.  Using the triple time stamping technique, cut the three panels in White Daisy cardstock, placed the three layers in my Misti and stamped a variety of the honeycombs on the corners using assorted yellow inks.  Added the yellow borders on each of the panels and glued all on my card base.  

Bitten By the Bug waived their standard of having to use Cricut cuts and for this challenge they will allow you to use any cutting machine. My Bugaboo digital was printed and a couple honeycombs stamped on white cardstock and cut with my Brother Scan and Cut. Love my Scan and Cut but miscalculated the cutting edge so it cut off one of the bee's antennas which I had to glue back on. The bee was colored using Copic Sketch brushes and adhered with 3D thin foam tape for dimension, along with one of the honeycombs. The sentiment were small alphabet dies in which I used my Cuttlebug to cut a set using honey cardstock, adhered to another set using black cardstock for a shadow and then placed and adhered each letter to the card.

Bitten By the Bug is a challenge that usually requires cuts from your Cricut machine, however, we CUT a Real Die'al with them.  For this challenge they are accepting the use of hand punches, die-cutting machines, but NO fussy-cutting!  Besides using a Cricut you are free to use a Silhouette, a Brother Scan and Cut or other similar devices. In your blog post be sure to tell us what you used. 

Please follow us on Double Trouble Challenge and receive notices of our new challenge on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month, and if there is a 5th Monday we run a special one week challenge "Something, Everything, Anything".
