Hello Honey Bee friends! Today I’m sharing a card made with the new Layering Wisteria stamp set, Layering Wisteria Add-On stamp set, and the coordinating Honey Cuts for both. These are brand new and part of the amazing Birthday Bliss release. I find I can never have enough thank you cards in my stash and I’m in love with the fonts of the sentiments in this set!
To make the stamping of these layering sets easy, I followed a template technique I was reminded of when I saw Jennifer McGuire’s video demonstrating this! You will need your MISTI, or other stamp positioning tool, for this technique. I die cut the Layering Wisteria and Layering Wisteria Add-On Honey Cuts flowers and leaves first, retaining one of the negative portions to place my die cuts in. Then you center your stamps in the open space, insert the die cut pieces, and stamp each one. I know this sounds a bit confusing, but if you watch her video, I think you’ll see what I mean. I used this layering guide that you will find on the Honey Bee website by scrolling through the product photos:
I used various purple, green, and brown inks from my stash to stamp the layers of the wisteria, leaves, and branch. Die cutting these pieces with the coordinating Layering Wisteria Honey Cuts and Layering Wisteria Add-On Honey Cuts before stamping is sure a time saver! I set these aside and worked on my card base.
I pressed some of the purple inks I used for stamping onto my glass mat. Then I used some water and a paint brush to add splatters onto some watercolor cardstock. Next I added drops of the new, and SO beautiful, Bee Shimmery Liquid Shimmer Watercolor. When this was dry, I adhered the piece to my A2 card base. I adhered the frame that I die cut from the Wood Frame Builder Honey Cuts with foam tape to add dimension.
I arranged the wisteria blossoms and leaves on my card, attaching them with foam dots and some Bee Creative glue. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Layering Wisteria set with Intense Black ink and die cut it with the coordinating Honey Cut. I used foam tape to attach it to the card.
I was amazed at how pretty and sparkly the Bee Shimmery liquid shimmer watercolor is! So I painted on more of it onto the darker portions of the wisteria blossoms. Then I just splattered what was left all over the card! LOL! It’s even prettier in real life!!
There are so many ways the Layering Wisteria sets could be used, and I hope I’ve given you another idea today! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful, crafty day!

Anne, thank you so much for your sweet comments! I agree, that this stamp would look great in other colors!
