Lady, You Brighten My Day Friendship Card for Honey Bee Stamps by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Hello Sunshine, Hello Friends and Happy April!

Yes, Spring has finally arrived and today I have a sunrise scene card featuring the SUNBURST COVER PLATE and a few of the Honey Bee Little Critters.

CARD DETAILS

I began this card by blending out the background. On a piece of Bristol paper, starting from the top I blended out Barn Door, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide inks. Once the ink was dry I die cut the pieces of the background using the SUNBURST COVER PLATE. To the sun and the sunray pieces, I added a layer of Glimmer Paste and let them dry.

Next, I die cut the grass strips from green cardstock using the GRASS BORDER DIE. To add some more texture and dimension to the grass, I added some blade strokes using a few green colors of Copic markers.

The little bee and flowers come from the BUSY BEES set, which has to be one of my favorite Honey Bee sets as I reach for it so often. I stamped them out using Blackout ink, colored them in with Copics and then die cut them with their coordinating HONEY CUTS.

The cute little ladybug staring up at the sunrise comes from the LITTLE LADIES set, that was also colored in with Copics and die cut with the coordinating LITTLE LADIES HONEY CUTS. To add some sparkle and shine to the ladybug I added some Liquid Pixie Dust to the dots on the body and then added some drops of glossy accents and let set it aside to dry.

For the greeting, I combined a few stamps from the LOVE BUG set. First, I stamped onto a piece of black cardstock using white pigment ink that I also heat set using white embossing powder and then I used the BANNER BUILDER HONEY CUTS then trimmed it to size. 

Once all the pieces of the card were finished all I did was glue them onto an A2 top folding card base. Using foam tape to add dimension and layers to the scene.
