Hi there everyone and happy Tuesday! I hope you are all having a great morning or for some an great afternoon.

Today I’m sharing a card using lots of different goodies from Honey Bee Stamps- digital images, stamps and even new dies!

Honey Bee Stamps Country Blooms, Kindness_1

To start I played a little on my computer, I opened the ‘Country Wreath Digital’ file on my laptop using paint. I drew an oval on the page and then moved the images into place around it- it took a little time to do this but as I was watching TV I didn’t mind. I copied a few of the images to use more than once and for the images I didn’t use I just deleted them. When I was happy with the arrangement I saved using a different file name as not to get rid of the digital stamp file and printed on my laser printer.

I printed on my laser printer so I could foil the images. I find it easier to colour the images using Copic markers before I do the foiling, so I coloured my images and then foiled then using a gold foil. Once foiled I fussy cut around the wreath so I could pop it up on my card.

For the sentiment I used a mix of stamps and a die- the new ‘Kindness Honey Cut’ is such an amazing die and also when you buy it 25% goes to support the Kindness Campaign so win-win right?!?! I cut the ‘kind’ and ‘ness’ three times out of white card and once out of black, I then stacked these up with the black layer on the top to create my stacked sentiment. I added this into place before stamping the rest of the sentiment around it using stamps from ‘Smile’.

Thank you so much for stopping by today I really do hope you enjoyed your visit!

Hope you have a beautiful day and I hope to see you again soon!

    Lovely! You make the digis look so easy to use…and foil!

    Please can you tell me how you did this ( separated and rearranged the images ) as I have bought the digital stamps, but cannot figure out how to do this?
    Thanks

      Hi there Jaycie- I used Paint on my computer (I think its on everyone’s), I opened the file in that programme and then just used the ‘select’ tool to select the images and move them round.
      Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

        Hi Lydia
        Thank you for your reply.
        I have tried and tried for the last 4 days (today is the 5th day) and when I move an image it still has the white background with it. I am losing the will to live
        please help
        thanks

          Oh no ๐Ÿ™ Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get rid of the white around the image either… the best I could do was zoom into the image I wanted and then took the ‘freeform’ select tool and drew around it as close as I could. I do have some little white gaps on my card but I don’t think they are all that noticeable ๐Ÿ™‚
          Please don’t lose the will to live . Hugs x

    Hi Lydia
    Thanks again, but this is part of an e-mail from Mellisa Hewitt I received 22/08/16 which states that at least one of the files should have a transparent background.

    “With so many different programs out there, itโ€™s hard to give instruction on how to โ€œseparateโ€ the images. If you open the PDF or the PNG file, however, the background should already be transparent”.
