A couple of weeks ago I took a class at Great Lakes Mega Meet that was sponsored by GlobeCraft.  It was taught by Linda Neff, I was very glad to have met her and went over to the GlobeCraft booth where I purchase a BUNCH of stuff.  One of the things I picked up was these awesome bubble ornaments and I couldn’t wait to get BUZZy with my first project.
I have been obsessed with the small bee stamp from VLVS!, you will notice it on several of my projects lately.   I stamped these little guys with archival ink, used my embossing pen and gold embossing powder, fussy cut them and gave them a coat of Glastique from Piccolo. 
Another fabulous product I am obsessed with is UmWow Studio chipboard.  For this ornament I used the hexagon background trimmed to fit and coated is Distress stickles.  I attached a couple of my little bees, on both sides, added a piece of May Arts twill/chevron stripes (another fabulous product I am obsessed with) with an MME brad. 
I used my Spellbinders bitty blossoms die to cut a couple of flowers from some MME paper, one went inside and one out.  I used the six hexagon border from VLVS! (LOVE) on the outside border of my ornament using embossing ink and gold embossing powder.
I also used some May Arts velvet ribbon for the ornament hanger.  I am super excited with how this little ‘hive’ worked out.  I hope you like it too!
