I am buzzing by to show you my card for the Scrap The Boys Card Challenge. The August challenge is Geometric, obviously there are so many great options and my head was spinning with various ideas, but the one I went with was Hexagons… specifically, honeycombs. I wanted to use some of my Honey Bee Stamps products and make a birthday (BEE-day) card for my honey. 😉
I started out with a honeycomb stencil that I received free as a promotion from Honey Bee Stamps with an order I placed a while ago. I colored texture paste with Wild Honey Distress Ink and spread it over the stencil. Be sure to clean your stencils right away, or the paste will become difficult if not impossible to remove if it dries. I let it sit overnight to dry, then I cut out a portion of the honeycomb and popped it up onto a background panel that I embossed using my hexagon embossing folder.
I stamped some bees with the Honey Bee Stamps Busy Bees stamp set and used the coordinating dies, and I colored them in with alcohol markers. I stamped the sentiment using the Bee-You-Tiful stamp set. I love the this set, as you can piece together your own sentiments. I used white embossing powder to make the sentiment POP! The final touch was to add some dots of Liquid Glass (Close To My Heart’s version of Glossy Accents) here and there.
