Hi friends! I had a little time to myself last night and decided to do a little stamping. Some of Verve's out of stock dies arrived back in stock yesterday, and after packaging them up, I was inspired to pull out The Buzz Die Set and make some colorful bees to go with the All things are possible sentiment in The Buzz. The Splitcoast Wild and Perfect Sky color challenge was the perfect jumping off point, so I pulled out some perfect plum, soft sky and wild wasabi and got right to work.
I started by stamping the bee in soft sky, then perfect plum, then wild wasabi on coordinating card stock and then cutting with the bee in The Buzz Die Set. Next I stamped the sentiment in archival black on white card stock, then stenciled over it with the same inks first with the doily layering stencil and then with the gothic layering stencil. I then placed two stitched circle dies together and taped them down so I could cut a circle frame and the inner circle. I offset these a bit, then popped up the colorful bees around the edges. I finished off with a white embossed layer using the chicken wire embossing folder.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day!
