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.LJs hihoney
  • 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.
