Just a Little Note from Honey Bee Stamps

Kia ora Koutou

I have been going through my considerable craft stash and found this Stitched Lattice Frames die from Creative Expressions. I do love the gorgeous stitched trellis background and thought it would be great to have this as a background for some pretty dogwoods and a sweet little birdie from Honey Bee Stamps. My inspiration again has come from Dawn at Wplus 9 Designs.

My project

I have created a side opening base card of 5″ x 6 1/8″. I die cut a piece of blue cardstock using the second smallest die from the Stitched Lattice Frames die and adhered it to the front of the card. I die cut two lattice frames using the lattice and smallest frame dies – one from blue and one from white cardstock. These were adhered together and adhered to the front of the blue card front. I die cut two white frames using the two smallest frame dies from the Stitched Lattice Frames dies and adhered the together and added it to the front of the card using foam strips.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beccy’s Place Magnolias stamp in Jet Black ink on white cardstock and die cut it out using the smaller Stitched Scallop circles die from Pink Fresh Studio. I die cut another two circles and adhered three outside circle frames and two inner circle frames together and added them to the front of the card. I finished by adding the stamped image to the centre of the frame.

I die cut the dogwood branches out of white cardstock and coloured the branches with brown copic markers before adding all the flowers to the branches. I added one branch coming from the top right and one branch coming from the bottom left triming the ends of the branches.

I die cut the birdie out of grey, black, white and brown cardstocks and assembled them according to the instructions on the Honey Bee Stamps website. I added the bird to the left of the circle frame with foam squares. I added some more spare flowers and leaves to the base of the bird and the branches.

To finish I have added some blue iridescent gems around the sentiment.
