Spring Greetings Shaker Card

Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing this card over on Instagram as part of Honey Bee Stamps' hop to celebrate their latest release for their 9th birthday!  Just so you know, there will be two $50 gift card prizes chosen from those that leave a comment on the Instagram posts!

The new products I've used are the Storybook Spring stamps with the coordinating dies and stencils, and the Sandie's Garden 3D embossing folder.

I used Honey Bee's new Beeluxe Blending Brushes to color the image through each Storybook Spring stencil layer.  These brushes are pencil shaped and make getting into the small openings very easy.

I used Distress Inks in these colors:  Kitsch Flamingo, Mustard Seed, Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness, and Lost Shadow.  When I finished with each stencil layer I placed the panel into my MISTI.  Then I aligned each stamp over its image and picked them up with the MISTI door.  I inked up the stamps with Intense Black ink.  Then I cut them out with the coordinating Storybook Spring dies.

For the background layer, I placed a die from the Sweet Stacks Circles in the center of an A2 white cardstock panel.  After I cut out the circle, I put it into the Sandie's Garden 3D embossing folder to emboss it.

I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the circle opening, then added strips of the World's Best Foam Tape by Pear Blossom Press around the opening and to the edges of the panel.  I've talked about this foam tape before, but if you missed it, this tape is truly amazing!!!  If you need to reposition your adhered panel, the tape is temporary for about 30 minutes!!  It becomes permanent after that.  

Next I added my shaker mix, then removed the adhesive backing, and placed my A2 card base onto the panel.  I love using some of my stash of embellishments!

The sentiment from the Storybook Spring set is stamped in black ink and cut out with the coordinating die.  The cute tiny bees add a bit of extra something!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you'll click over to my Instagram to check out more inspiration from this awesome release!
