I can't believe its been month already but today sees my monthly workshop at Breedon Priory! we will be playing with the pocket watch dies and the new Bee Balm collection.
Today I am sharing a card made with the Bee Balm collection and the Crafts Too scoreboard that was the Bonus on Hochnada. Ive never tried scoring parchment before but I love the look of this with the Bee;'sin the centre of each panel.
I started by using the embossing board to score the 9 squares onto a piece of parchment which gave me the gridlines for the stamping of the bees. I then stamped one of each size of the bee from my Bee Balm stamp set in the centre of each square repeating this unit, I had all three rows. I then heat embossed these with the Izink Transparent glitter embossing powder. I framed the pice using the Press Cut Stitch doit and plain square dies and from mounted this onto a set of my usual mats and layers.
Next I stamped the bee balm flowers using the single stamp using embossing ink and the same glitter embossing powder. I heat set these then placed the large Bee Balm flower die on the registration marks to cut this out I love the fact all six cut in one die and one pass. I shaped the flowers adding a Crafts Too diamond in the centre of each flower. I cut the Swirl leaves and arranged these on the bottom corner of the card arranging the flowers on top.
Finally I cut the Butterflies, just using the filigree dies, and shaped these before adding them too the arrangement with gems in the centre.
