You're Simply The Best -- 3D Embossing Folder, Stencils & More

Hello friends!  Today I'm doing a quick post for my card that is part of the Honey Bee Stamps Vintage Love Instagram hop.  I can't even pick a favorite from this release but the Lovely Layers: Sweetheart Roses and the Floral Heart 3D embossing folder are surely amongst the top favorites!

The two new embossing folders in this release are different in that they will embossing a panel for a 5" x 7" card and both have a coordinating die!  Underneath the beautiful stenciled background is a heart that could be die cut with the die that coordinates with the Floral Heart 3D embossing folder.

I hated to cover that heart up, but the stenciled panel I made with the Climbing Rose stencil set makes up for that.  I used some beautiful Stencil Butter for the second layer after coloring the first layer using blender brushes and two green Distress Oxide inks.

You may think that the Lovely Layers: Sweetheart Roses are too fiddly, but I can tell you, the layers are SO worth the bit of extra time it may take to assemble them.  These are absolutely gorgeous!!!  Using the layering guide in the product description is so helpful too.

I cut the Sweetheart Roses layers from 80# Neenah and used small ink blending brushes to color them.  Just one shade of pink ink was used here!  I just blended some layers darker than others.  I added foam tape squares behind the top three roses to adhere them to the die cut heart.  This heart is part of the Lace Heart Layering Frames die set.  I love the details around the edges!

Honey Bee is giving away two $50 gift cards to be chosen from commenters on the hop!  I hope you'll join me on my Instagram and hop along with us for lots of amazing inspiration for the Vintage Love release!
