Your Next Stamp May GDT - Farewell

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my seventh and last guest spot on the Your Next Stamp Blog this month. I can't believe May is nearly over. Thank you Karen, Julie and whole Your Next Stamp Design Team for having me!!! It was a wonderful experience and I had a lot of fun. :o)

You can find all projects I made for Your Next Stamp May Guest position on my blog page, here. :o)

For my last guesting post I decided to create a bee themed card. I used stamps from 'Honey Bee' stamp set and a mini honeycomb die from 'Honey Drip and Honeycomb Combo' die set. Super cuteness overload!!! LOVE!!!! 


And here is my card: Just BEE-cause Card. :o)

How I made my card...

I ink blended a white cardstock panel with Distress Inks, Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber. I splattered the panel with water, dried it, ink blended and splattered it with water again. I mixed both Distress Inks with water and splattered the panel. When I was satisfied with color, I dried the panel.

Then I worked on a honeycomb. I glued a white cardstock paper on a white one sided sticker sheet and die cut the honeycomb 10 times. I glued die cuts on the panel, cut off the excess and glued the panel on a white top folded card base.

Next up was an adorable bee. I stamped the bee on the white cardstock paper, colored it in grey and fussy cut it leaving a thin white border around it. Then I stamped another bee on a watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. I fussy cut the bee, traced edges with a black marker and glued the watercolored bee over the grey one. I did this to make the image thicker, because the watercolor paper I use is very thin.

I heat embossed a sentiment in white on a black cardstock paper, cut the stripe to a desirable size, glued some foam on the back of the sentiment and glued it on the card. Lastly, I glued some foam on the back of the bee, glued the bee on the card and my card was finished. :o)
