Sting like a Bee

I've been a Busy Bee...


I've been entering Ticket Swaps over on the Message boards so I'm in a Altering Ticket Kick.

Then I saw a Challenge on the Trendy Twine Blog 

Colors:  Yellow, Black, & White only (no other colors can be used)
Bee or Bees (embellishments, stamps, stickers, etc.)
Trendy Twine
So I decided to Combine them both.
I started out with Black Cardstock and used the Tim Holtz Ticket Die
to Make my Ticket Strip.

Taking a Yellow piece of Cartdstock, I used the HoneyComb Embossing Folder from Stampin Up on it to give me the Hexagon shapes. 
Then I used the Ticket Punch to get 5 inserts with the Honeycomb design for my background.

Next, I wrapped the Punched Tickets with Bumble Bee Twine from Annie's Paper Boutique. I absolutely love their twine. I usually get their Spools and then put them on a smaller spool so they are easier to transport to crops or swarms.
I wrapped all 5 pieces.

Next, I took the Close to My Heart Bee Mine Stamp Set (a Petite Perk) and Used Both the Big Bee and the Mini Bee. Once I stamped them, I used CTMH Glitz in Stardust for their Wings and left it to dry.

While that was drying, I used the Stampin Up Boho Punch to make little flowers. I punched out 5 of the bigger flower and then using a normal hole puncher in the lower corner of the Flower. I then followed along the inner edge to Make a 1/4 hole in the center and cut one side. Then I started wrapping it around itself to produce a mini flower.

I then joined all elements together and Voila! My Tickets!

I plan to use them on a Layout that I'll post later this week.

I'm entering these Tickets on the July Challenge: Sting Like a Bee from Trendy Twine
