Framed Anemones Shaker Card | Honey Bee Stamps

 Hello crafty friends!  Did you catch the full reveal of the Honey Bee Stamps newest release called Summer Stems?  If not, be sure to check it out in the Honey Bee shop!  It is full of so many awesome stamps and dies, with several different styles, and will have something for everyone!  Today I've used the absolutely gorgeous stamp set called Framed Anemones.  This beautiful set was illustrated by our super talented design teammate, Emily Midgett!

Did you notice that this shaker card is frameless?!!  This new product is an A2 Shaker Pocket by Tonic Studios, and guess what?  This was the idea by another amazingly talented design team member, Ilda Dias!  I'm so honored to be on this awesome team!  (Note: I'm so sorry but this is currently out of stock.  If you click the notify me button, you will receive an email as soon as it's available.)  Now, onto my card.

First I stamped this gorgeous image on 80# Neenah Solar White card stock with Honey Bee's Intense Black Copic safe ink.  I really like this ink!!  Then I colored it with these Copic markers.

Flowers: N5, BG49, BG13, BG11, BG10
Leaves:  G28, G07, YG09, YG06
Background:  BG18
Frame:  W9, W7

When I was finished coloring, I added dots to the flower centers with a white gel pen.


Now it's time to make the shaker part of the card.  First I trimmed the panel down to 4-¼" x 5-½".  I did find that when I placed it into the shaker pocket, I needed to trim it just the tiniest bit for it to lay flat.  When you have your card face down inside the pocket, remove the adhesive backing from the sides and bottom, then fold the flaps to adhere.  Then I sprinkled in some of Honey Bee's Bokeh Lights confetti mix and sealed the top.  Easy-peasy!!

There are several sentiments included in the set and I chose one, stamped it in Intense Black ink, then cut it out with the coordinating die.  I adhered it to the card with Bee Creative glue.


I love how this turned out, and I hope you do too!  Thank you so much for stopping by!
