Sending Hugs!

Thought I'd actually do a little blog post for this Honey Bee Stamps card I've posted on Instagram today!  I want to share a tip that will make creating with little die cuts like this a bit easier!


I'm sure those of you reading this know about the trick to use Press N Seal to press down onto your arranged pieces.  Well, these pieces are pretty small and there's quite a few of them to arrange.  They kept slipping and sliding when I was playing with ideas.  I finally thought to lay the Press N Seal sticky side up and stick my pieces in various places till I was happy with the arrangement.  (You can see how I taped the Press N Seal down so it wouldn't move.)  I then took a photo with my phone and referred to it when actually gluing them to the card panel!  This made it so much easier!

  

I used a stylus and a foam pad to shape the flowers and leaves for dimension.  I really love taking just plain white card stock and creating something bright and cheerful like this!


If you actually are reading here at the end, I thank you very much!  Have a wonderful day!
