Hello beautiful friends! Today I have a sweet shaker card using the Honey Bee Stamps Spring Bouquet Honey Cuts along with a few other of their products. I've also been wanting to use some of the many sequins mixes I've been
hoarding, um I mean accumulating! LOL!
I began by creating the frame for the shaker portion. I aligned the two largest A2 Double Stitched Frames Honey Cuts together, centering the smaller one inside the larger one. I taped them together with some purple tape. I believe I die cut about six of these from white card stock. The number you need will depend upon the thickness of your shaker bits. I glued five of them together and put a large stamp block on them to keep the frame flat while the glue dried. Next I inked up the Woodgrain Background stamp with light gray ink and stamped the remaining frame.
Next I used some heat-resistant acetate and stamped the sentiment in Versamark clear embossing ink. The sentiment is from the Thanks A Bunch set. I added white embossing powder and heat set it. Make sure you let your heat gun warm up for about ½ minute and melt the embossing powder by applying the heat for just a few seconds at a time. Trim the acetate to fit the frame and adhere with some 1/8" Scor-Tape. Add more Scor-Tape onto the acetate and adhere the woodgrain stamped frame. Turn the frame over and add the yellow sequin mix from the Rainbow Deluxe Sequin Set. Next I adhered some patterned paper from The Bee's Knees 6x6 paper pad onto the back of the frame. Next I adhered the shaker to a top-folding A2 card base.
Next die cut the flowers and leaf branches from patterned paper from the Spring Lullaby 6x6 paper pad. I decided to color the leaf branches with a couple of Copic markers for some dimension. The flower centers are from a scrap of patterned paper from The Bee's Knees paper pad. I also die cut a few flowers from white card stock. I used the Flower Shaping Kit tools to add dimension to to them. I used liquid glue to adhere the flower layers together.
To finish up the flowers (and use more "saved" bling) I added some yellow enamel dots from the Spring Fling set to the flower centers. I just love how Honey Bee's patterned papers and embellishments from different sets can be mixed and matched! Now all that's left to do is arrange the flowers and branches using liquid glue to adhere them.
So, remember to use all the bling! That just means you can totally justify buying more bling! Haha! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope your days have been, and will be, safe, happy and crafty!
