Hello Honey Bee friends! I was in the mood for pink and gold, so I made this sweet card featuring a the new Happy Plants stamp set along with the Art Deco Patterns stencils and Stacking Art Deco Labels Honey Cuts. Using one of the sentiments from the Rooting For You set makes this a versatile card to use for lots of different occasions like Valentine’s Day, a birthday, or just showing you care!
First I sprayed the back of one of the three Art Deco Patterns stencil with Pixie Spray to hold it in place on my white cardstock. Then I used a Detail Blender brush to add pink ink through the stencil in an ombré pattern. I left the stencil in place and spattered some white paint on the piece. I let that dry and then spattered some gold paint with my paint brush. I removed the stencil and set the piece aside to dry. When it was dry, I adhered it to a top folding card base.
To avoid coloring with my Copic markers over the gold heat embossing I used my MISTI to stamp the images from the Happy Plants set with No Line Coloring ink. While I colored the plant and flower pot with my Copic markers,I left the stamps on the MISTI door. When I finished coloring them, I placed the paper back into the MISTI and re-stamped the images with Clear Embossing ink. I sprinkled on gold embossing powder and heat set it. Next I used the coordinating Honey Cuts to cut them out.
Next I die cut some gold cardstock and white card stock with two of the Stacking Art Deco Labels Honey Cuts. I adhered the gold one to the stenciled piece with Bee Creative glue. I added foam tape to the back of the white Art Deco Labels die cut and put it on top of the gold one.
I stamped the sentiment from the Rooting For You set with Clear Embossing ink, sprinkled on gold embossing powder, and heat set it. I used the coordinating Honey Cut to cut the sentiment out and also die cut it four more times from white cardstock. I adhered all of the die cuts with Bee Creative glue and then added it to my card with glue. To finish up, I added foam dots to the back of the flower pot and plant and adhered them to my card.
I really love pulling out my stencils and ink–there are so many possibilities with this type of product! I hope you’ve enjoyed my card and found some inspiration today! Thank you so much for stopping by!
