Hello friends! Today we are hopping over on Instagram to celebrate Honey Bee Stamps' new release called Modern Spring. This release is filled with so many gorgeous sets--from florals, cute mice, hot foil plate sentiments, and more--there's something for everyone!
Before I get to the details of my card, be sure to visit my Instagram when you are finished here to get started on the hop. The more comments you leave, the more chances you will have to win a $25 gift card to the Honey Bee shop!
First I stenciled a rainbow of Distress Oxide inks through the Scattered Seeds stencil with Detail Blender brushes. All the colors I used are in the supply list at the end. I trimmed the piece to 4" x 5-¼", added a black mat layer, and adhered it to an A2 card base.
Next I worked on the elements for the card. I used two of the Lovely Layers: Greenery dies and cut one four times and the other twice from white card stock. I left three of the die cuts in the negative space, taped them on the back with removable tape, and then ink blended the same Distress Oxides over them. I spritzed water droplets on them and dried it with my heat tool. Then I added drops of Pure White ink spray and dried that.
For the three remaining pieces of greenery, I spattered some gold (retired) Perfect Pearls Mist over them and let dry.
I die cut the dragonfly wings from the Lovely Layers: Bugs set three times. Once each from white card stock, rainbow foil (for hot foil plates) and from vellum. I adhered the rainbow foil to the white layer and adhered the vellum by adding a dot of glue in the center. I used my fingers to slightly curl up the vellum wings. I love the effect of the foil through the vellum!! I used a clear Wink of Stella to add sparkle to the vellum wings. I die cut the dragonfly body from some pink mirror card stock in my stash and adhered the wings to the body.
I die cut the "kind" sentiment from the Bitty Buzzwords: Bloom die set from black card stock three times. I adhered the layers together and glued them to the white shadow die cut layer. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Bitty Buzzwords: Bloom stamp set in Clear Embossing ink onto black card stock. I sprinkled on white embossing powder and heat set it. I used a die from the Sentiment Banners die set to cut it out.
I fiddled around (it seemed like forever--LOL!) with the elements to decide on an arrangement. Once I was happy I popped up the dragonfly and the sentiments with foam squares. I used Bee Creative glue to adhere the greenery layers.
I adhered some gems from the new Modern Spring Gem Stickers to the card and also the dragonfly body. I love how iridescent these are and that there are three different sizes in the new sets!
I'm so happy you stopped over for the details of my card! Thank you! Be sure to go back over to Instagram where I have the hop list, and check out the other designers' projects!
