Welcome back and today I am featuring the stunning Honey Bee Stamps: Lovely Layers – Peony die. I have been watching a video on YouTube by Dawn Woleslagle at Wplus9 Design on how to colour the layered flowers from Honey Bee Stamps using ink blending to create depth and dimension. So I purchased the Peony die and had a go and I was thrilled with the result. There is so much texture to the flowers and leaves even though they are actually flat. I will definitely be doing more of this colouring.
I have created a top folding 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ base card out of white cardstock. I then cut a piece of white glitter paper that has been in my stash for too many years 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and coloured the whole piece with Fresh Pear and Grassy Knoll inks and added it to the front of the card. I then die cut two dies from the Honey Bee Stamps Delicate Daisy A2 Cover Plate Top out of white cardstock. I adhered the two dies together and placed them over the sparkly green card front.
I die cut all the pieces of the Honey Bee Stamps: Lovely Layers – Peony die out of white cardstock and coloured them with Light and Medium Carnation inks for the flower and buds and Light and Medium Spruce for the leaves. I assembled the flowers and buds together using some foam tape for dimension. I added the leaves to the bottom right of the card and then adhered the buds around the leaves. The large peony was added using some foam squares.
I stamped the sentiment from the Beccy’s Place Stamp Set – Blue Wren in Obsidian ink on white cardstock and die cut the banner out using the Heartfelt Creations Arrows and Banners Die set. I then adhered the sentiment to the card front with foam squares.
To finish I added some sweet ladybirds from Susan’s Garden Forget-Me-Knots and Ladybugs that I had in my stash and added them around the flowers and leaves. I then added some clear iridescent gems to the centres of the daisies on the decorative daisy die
