With a spring in our steps and a hop onto the work table, let’s take a look at what I put together for the Imagine-Joy Clair blog hop!

I selected the Bee Kind and Wood Background stamps for this hop and had a lot of fun with this project. It certainly didn’t hurt that the Bee Kind set comes with the downloadable svg files which worked perfectly with my Cricut to save me some time!

Here’s the full supply list:

Joy Clair Bee Kind stamps & cut files
Joy Clair Wood background stamp
VersaMark pad
Imagine embossing powders in Black, Gold, and Clear
OnPoint Glue
Delicata ink in Celestial Copper

Along with:
Card stock in black, white, and yellow
Cricut & Cricut Design Space
Acrylic blocks
Heat tool
Tweezers
Helmar ZapDots
Trimmer
Wire
Paint brush
Wire cutters
Scotch tape

The spring-loaded bees were inspired by the Action Wobbles that were pretty popular a couple years ago. While these bees don’t so much wobble and bounce, For an actual wiggle I think cutting pieces of a plastic coil bracelet (the stretchy ones you can use to keep your keys on your wrist) and securing them with a heavier adhesive. I might have to experiment with that another time!

Now, where to next? Hopefully you came from Martha’s site and you’re on your way to Kerry’s. If not, why not hop back to the beginning and see what the other designers came up with for this blog hop?!

    The card turned out super cute. I love the stamp set. Never thought of making my own wobbles but neat. Thanks for sharing.

    Way cool Jennifer! Love the springy bees and all the cool embossing details. Coffee filters will now join other things such as dryer sheets and baby wipes on my crafting table!

    Such a fun spring-loaded effect! Love that bee set and the woodgrain background. I think it’s amazing that most sets from Joy Clar include the SVG file for free! 🙂
