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

Along with:

Heat tool
Helmar ZapDots
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?!
