Hello Crafters!

Happy weekend!

I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend filled with great weather and lots of craft time. In fact, enjoy it for both of us because it’s rainy here and I’m working all weekend haha.

Thankfully there’s flower and honey bee stamps where I can create much better weather 🙂

I love a one layer card but I know not everyone does. So let me say that you can create this card with the matching die cuts for each set without any masking at all. However, if you’d like to give it a go, and I hope you do, when you stamp your images make sure you stamp the most forward thing first. It might be easiest to think about it as the object you want to see the most of you stamp first.

In this card I stamped in this order, bees (minus the middle bee) hive, middle bee, flowers, leaves.

I really wanted a soft sky that blended into a soft green behind the leaves. This soft green gives the illusion of more greenery behind the stamped images. That imaginary greenery helps fill up the card corners with minimal work from me. I also added color to the rest of the stamped images with the zig clean color markers even though I new I was going to use copics over them. Why? Because Copic markers are transparent and the color you layer beneath them will still be seen through the markers.

You can see the card from start to finish in the video below.

I love how bright the peonies are against that soft watercolor. While the coloring adds a bit of time to the process it’s totally worth it to me for that rich bold color!

Thank you so much for joining me!

I hope you have an amazing weekend!
