To Bee Or Not to Bee Blog Hop!
It's World Bee Day and today we are participating in a World Bee Day Blog Hop, organized by Milka Gubo! This hope has been organized by Milka to help celebrate the 2nd World Bee Day, to support bees and to raise public awareness of the importance of bees and apicultural products. All the stops in this hop will be featuring fun Bee and/or Honey themed projects!
To play along with the hop we are featuring an adorable Honey Bee Hive Card created by me!! Scroll down to see my beautiful card and details on how it was created!!
Hello!! I'm sharing a fun Honey Bee Hive Card Today!!
Have you ever used your Patterned Stencils in order to add dimension and interest to a shaped card Design!!?? For my Honey Bee Hive Shaped Card Base today that is exactly what I'm going to do!! First I Die Cut the Honey Bee Hive from some Lawn Fawn #2 Pencil Cardstock and then I created Mask to add some shading to the layers of the Hive with a light inking of Wild Honey Distress Ink!! Then I placed the Newton's Nook Designs Argyle Stencil Set over the top and used some Purple tape to hold it in place while I inked with Wild Honey Distress Ink!! I removed the Stencil and the Subtle Pattern adds so much dimension to the design!!
Then I placed the second piece from the Argyle Stencil Set over the inked design and lined up the pattern placing more Purple tape to hold it in place!! Then with the help of the Therm O Web Stencil Pal I applied some Gina K Designs Glitter Glitz Gel in White!! I removed the Purple Tape and the Stencil and set it aside to dry!! Swoon!! It adds such a neat affect to the design!!
I stamped and embossed the images from the Newton's Costume Party Stamp Set and colored them in using Copic Markers!! (Newton: N0, N2 & N4 R00 for the cheeks Bee Outfit: N8, N6, N4 Y11, Y15 & YR23 Wings: Bg000, BG10) I used the coordinating Newton's Costume Party Die Set to cut the images out and added some White Gel pen highlights, some Aqua Shimmer Pen for some Sparkle and Tonic Studios Black Nuvo Drops to add some dimension!! I also Stamped some of the tiny bee images from the Newton's Day Dream Stamp Set!! I wanted some Bees fling in the opposite direction, so I also used my Ranger Gel Printing Plate along with my Misti Stamping tool to Mirror Stamp a few of the Bees!! Then I Fussy Cut them out!! For the sentiment I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the Loads of Blooms Stamp Set onto a vellum die cut speech bubble using the Speech Bubble Die Sets!! I masked off "Beauty" and Embossed it with some WOW Pearl Gold Glitter Embossing Powder!!
For the inside of the card I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Newton's Day Dream Stamp Set and stamped another bee image and then added a red foiled heart that I added some Tonic Studios Morning Dew Nuvo Drops too to add some Dimension!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you'll look at your Stencils differently and how you can use them to add dimension and patterns to things other than just A2 sized Card bases!!
