It’s time for a new Club Kit (All the details are below or skip and sign up here by 2/20/2020 to get this kit!) reveal from La-La Land Crafts! The February 2020 kit is BEE-utiful because it is filled with sweet bees and Miss Marci who is as sweet as can bee! To the left, you can see all the items in this month’s kit including:
- Bee Happy Marci stamp set with sweet Marci and two phrases
- Just Bee-cause stamp set including three bees and five phrases
- Beehive die
- Honey jar (i.e., a bear-shaped bottle) die
- Double Stitched Nesting Hexagons – four sizes.
I’m in LOVE with this month’s kit because there are so many possibilities! I’ve created a reveal video below. Take a look…
Flower Garden Marci
My first card features the following La-La Land Crafts products:
- February Kit (Sign Up here by 2/20 to get this kit)
- Love You More Pattern Paper Pack
- Everything is Rosy Stencil Set
This card is easy to make because the flowers and background are done for you. They are made from the pattern papers pack. I simply colored Marci, the two bees and the beehive to make the card. Here the Copic colors I used to color the images.

After coloring, the images were fussy cut and the card was assembled. This is a 5″ X 7″ card.
Sweet as Honey
My second card features a sticky scene with spilled honey all over the floor. Our little worker bee is helping clean up the mess. This card uses the following products:
You may have noticed that Marci is actually flipped horizontally, i.e., a mirror image of the stamp. To do this, I used the Mirror Image Stamping technique which is simple to do and gives you more options with your images/scenes, too! Here’s how I did it using my MISTI tool . 1.) Place image on right and place a blank piece of rubber on the left. This is the transfer rubber. 2.) Ink the image and close the door, transferring the stamp image to the transfer rubber. The image will now be transferred to the rubber.
3.) Replace the image rubber stamp on the right with cardstock and close the door. Apply some pressure to transfer the image. Open the door and ta-da! There is the mirrored image on the cardstock!
The tiled floor and spilled honey on this card was done by hand, using a ruler and a black marker for the floor. The honey was cut freehand and colored. The wallpaper is pattern paper from the pattern paper pack. I added Magic Transparent to the top of the spilled honey on the floor and down the bee’s bucket for a textural and more realistic “wet” look. I used Copics to color the rest of the images from the kit.
