Case the colours of the Kerchief Card Kit -
Yes, I caved and bought the Honey Bee bundle and am so pleased with it! For some reason I thought I had enough bee images but it appears there's always room for just one more (LOL)!!
I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and sponged Coastal Cabana ink on the centre, then I dripped/flicked some water onto the sponged area and allowed it to dry. I've inked the greeting from Peaceful Moments but masked half off at a time and stamped on the top left, then the remainder on the bottom right using Night of Navy ink. Using the same ink I stamped a couple of bees (I think they look more like bugs actually!) and diecut them with the Detailed Bee dies. I've diecut a piece of Gold Foil sheet, not quite through, then I moved the die on my piece of foil turned it around and ran it not quite through, there was only a tiny bit that actually cut through. (This meant I ended up with a piece of honeycomb twice as big as the die if you don't see what I mean there) I've left a few of the hexagon pieces in and adhered all to the top of the sponged area.
When I was happy with the front, I added it to a mat of Night of Navy before adhering to a Coastal Cabana base. I then added a tiny Poppy Parade heart using the same dies. My bees (bugs) were added with Stampin' Dimensionals.
That honeycomb die is just the cutest! I think it will get a good workout here.
Last weekend hubby and I celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary, so this card was made for him! On the inside a Coastal Cabana beehive with a greeting from Well Said in Night of Navy, this time the bugs are departing the hive and there's the other little heart from the Detailed Bees dies.
Hope to see you play along! You have two weeks to choose your colour combination from above and make your card - then add using the link over on the right. Meantime please visit Peta and her stunning project:
