Honey Bee for GDP 238

This week's sketch at Global Design Project gave me a chance to have a play with a favourite of mine from the January-June Mini Catalogue, the Honey Bee bundle. It is retiring on 3 June, so if you have it on your wish list, don't delay in ordering.

The Golden Honey Specialty DSP was a huge favourite during Sale-abration, so many of you will recognise the DSP in this card, which I'v coloured in Rich Razzleberry with a brayer.

The sweet little cluster is formed from various elements of the bundle but I've added in a border from Ornate Borders, one of the pre-release items from the 2020-21 Annual Catalogue which you can order already.

I wanted to add in some of the new Gilded Gems to finish off this card  - but after my craft room cleanup, I couldn't find them! Some Champagne Rhinestones made a good substitute.

Don't forget that if you love this Honey Bee bundle as much as I do, you need to order it asap as it is only available while stocks last.

NB: Golden Honey DSP is now retired.


  1. This is lovely Jan - Rich Razzleberry is a colour I don’t often use these days yet it creates a lovely warm background to your cluster of honey bee detail. Hope those gilded gems turn up soon!

  2. What a perfect way to use this sketch....your ombre shading is perfect, and I am so happy to see that bee make an appearance. I was very disappointed he wasn't going to be with us in the new catalog! Your sentiment treatment is wonderful as well!

  3. OOOOOOhhh I love the background. I must try this on the paper I have. Beautiful

  4. The background is amazing! Love the gold with the raspberry color--beautiful card!
