Hello stampers! Olga is here and I’m so happy to see you!
I want to show you my new shaker card with funny bees from the HONEY BEES stamp set today.
You know that I love to make backgrounds using stencils. For today’s card I played with a handmade stencil, which I made using MICRO HEXAGON COVER DIE.
I stamped the images in a black hybrid ink, colored them with Marvy Uchida alcohol markers and die cut out with the HONEY BEES DIES.
Next, I created an ink blended background. I wanted to add some interest to it, which I did using a handmade micro hexagon stencil and blended Mowed Lawn and Mustard Seed Distress Inks through the stencil. This gave me nice visual texture.
I also die cut out small windows using SCALLOP SQUARE die set to make three shaker windows. I filled shakers with IRIDESCENT BUBBLES – TINY, SEAFOAM PEARLS, LEMON BURST PEARLS, CRYSTAL STARS and GOLD DUST seed beads.
I stamped the sentiment from the BIRTHDAY GREETINGS stamp set and heat embossed it in white embossing powder on a kraft cardstock. Next, I die cut out the sentiment using PEONY TRIMMINGS DIES and foam mounted the images with the sentiment on my card.
Have a nice day!
