ICE Resin, Stampendous and Imagine Crafts blog hop


Welcome to day 1 of the Stampendous StampsICE Resin® and Imagine Crafts®/Tsukineko® blog hop!

I am so excited to be a part of this amazing creative collaboration. I had so much fun working with this incredible combination of products.

The inspiration for this piece came to me as soon as I set my eyes on the Stampendous “Queen Bee” stamp set.

A while back I fell in love with a quote by Mary Kay Ash that said “Aerodynamically, the bumble bee should not be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying any way.” I envisioned a girl in a yellow and black striped dress standing at a chalk board with the quote written on it.

I am amazed by how perfectly my vision translated into this beautiful artistic reality.


I love the way this project turned out and how incredibly simple it was to make.

Here are the supplies I used:

Stampendous Stamps “Queen Bee”

Black StazOn by  Imagine Crafts®/Tsukineko®

Yellow Sharpie Paint Pen

Black Sharpie Paint Pen
