Here is my card:))
Can you see how much fun I had playing with the stamps and Honeycuts?
I have a few pictures showing several of the steps as I created this one...(I find taking photos is easier than typing:))
- First I used an A2 sized Neenah Solar White CS
- Heat embossed the honeycomb outline stamp with GOLD EP and inked the solid honeycomb Hexagon in Distress Wild Honey…I purposely miss inked the solid images to get a cool texture.
- Then I grabbed my water spritzer and gave it a good coat of water so the Distress would blend…COOL effect:))
- Let that dry completely.
- Now I used the SWEET word image to repeat stamp on the background.
- Heat embossed the JAR in GOLD EP as well.
- Set that aside.
Moving on to the BLOOMS…
- I Heat embossed the small and large blooms MANY times in Silver PEARL on Neenah Solar White CS..I never know how many blooms I will need for a card, it’s better to have too many than NOT enough!
- Quickly colored the centers with Distress markers
- Spritzed the whole panel to blend the colors.
- After cutting the blooms out with the Honeycuts, I stamped and die cut several leaves as well.
- Colored them with Ziggys and a Distress marker.
- I like to add texture to the blooms with a 8MM stylus from my SUSAN’S GARDEN TOOL KIT.
- By simply rubbing in a circular motion on each petal, the blooms curl up with a more natural flower shape.
- I did the same to each leaf.
- I then cut the honeycomb background panel down with a rectangle die and popped it into a matching frame of a complementary color.
- Honeycut a LID and bow for the jar as well as cut a JAR out of acetate, but you really can’t see that in the photo.
- Assembled the blooms and leaves and adhered them around the jar with dimensional dots.
- Stamped the HI HONEY in black and Honeycut them out and used the dots to give a lift to them too.
Those tiny HONEYBEES are Honeycut from the set:)))
Hope this inspired you to get your stamps and honeycuts out to play with today!!
