Hi there it’s Tracey back again today. My lilac bushing are fully blooming right now and with that the honey bees are back too! Today I have a fun shaker card using the Scallop Honeycomb Cover die along with the gang from the Honey Bees stamp set!
To create the top panel of the shaker I blended Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey and a bit of Spiced Marmelade Distress Oxide ink on to a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock. I flicked some water over the panel and picked up the excess with a paper towel. Then I splattered a bit of yellow gold metallic watercolour over the panel and set it aside to dry. Once it was dry I adhered a piece of Studio Katia Clear Acetate on the backside of the panel.
To create the bottom of the shaker which is the inside of the honeycomb I lightly blended another panel with the same Distress Oxide inks and then I placed the Honeycomb stencil over the panel and blended more of the inks over the stencil. Then I picked up some water with a clean foam blender and dabbed off the excess on a paper towel and pounced it over the stencil. I finished by absorbing the remaining water off the stencil with paper towel.
Once dry I adhered this to my card base and then I created the walls of my shaker using two layers of Studio Katia foam tape. I filled the shaker with a combination of Gold Fever Confetti and Gold Fever Glitter. I adhered the top panel of the shaker over the shaker well sealing the contents inside the honeycomb. The images from the Honey Bees stamp set were stamped and die cut with the Honey Bees die set. Then they were coloured with Copic markers and their wings were highlighted with clear Wink of Stella.
One of the hexagons from the die cute Honeycomb cover was stamped with the word hi from the Honey Bees stamp set and then placed over one of the empty hexagons with foam tape. “Buzzing by the say…” was stamped and die cut using one the Peony Trimmings die set.
Thank you so much for stopping in today and I hope that I have inspired you to make a shaker. They are always so fun to giveaway, stay safe!
