You Warm my Heart
Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here today bringing you some Honey Bee Stamps Thursday inspiration.
Well, I recently went to Boulder, Colorado where we visited the Celestial Seasonings Tea Factory. Goodness, that place is filled with beautiful aroma that I just love. Of course, we ended up coming home with several different kind of teas to try. This recent visit totally inspired my card for today.
When the weather get cooler, I love snuggling with a good cup of tea or cappuccino. I love both drinks. When I started this card, I simply started with the cup image from Coffee Break set. Once I colored it, I was contemplating of making clean & simple card, but then I decided that shaker card would be more fun. Besides, Honey Bee has all this sequin mixes that are simply gorgeous & I need to play with them.
For the shaker card, I used Hexagon Cover Plate dies and die cut the first layer out of gray cardstock. Then I cover the back with a piece of acetate. Then I die cut 3 more layers of the hexagons. On purpose, I didn’t punch out all of the hexagon pieces. I think it created more interest by leaving some in.
All you need to do is simply gently peeling the paper from the dies and most of the hexagon would stay in place. Once I glued all the layers together, I have enough depth to add the sequins mix (I used Pumpkin Patch mix) and adhere the whole thing to the card base.
Finished by adhering the colored cup image and adding the sentiment from Perfect Blend set. Such fun card, right? I had so much fun making this card.
Well peeps, that’s all from me tody. I hope you enjoy today’s card and may your day be filled with things that warm your heart. <3
