Honey Bee Stamps - Wow Blog Hop


Hello Crafting Friends, and welcome to a very special Blog Hop collaboration with the WOW! Embossing Powder & Honeybee Stamps. The best part of having a blog hop is meeting, sharing and inspiring one another in this beautiful crafting community. We feel so blessed to have our path’s cross with each other and we all hope this collaboration inspires everyone. 

For those that don't know me... I'm Ilda 👋 and if you have been hopping along, you should have come from the lovely Galina's Blog. If you got lost along the way, head back over to the Honeybee Stamps / WOW! Embossing Powder blog for the complete list of designers joining in the hop or you can refer to the Hop list at the end of this post.


For my card today I have a created a floral friendship circle shaped card. 

To create this, I started by cutting out my card base using the Donut Card Die. I then die cut the largest circle from the Stitched Scallop Circle Dies and adhered it to the top of the card front. I then used the circle die cut from the Donut die set and glued that on top to finish off the card panel.

Next, I began to work on the details of the card. I started by stamping out the Spring Blossoms and heat setting them with the Ebony WOW! Super Fine Embossing Powder. I then used Zig Clean Clear Brush Pens to watercolor in the flowers and used the coordinating dies to die cut them out. For a bit of a "WOW" factor, I die cut the branch from the Branch and Leaves Die and used the same Ebony powder to coat the entire surface of the branch. I heat set two coats of embossing powder on the top of the branch and one underneath. Once I was happy with the finish of the branch I snipped it in a few spots and placed it behind the cluster of flowers that I had popped up onto the card.

For the sentiments, I used a white pigment ink and heat set the letters with the WOW! Super Fine  Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder on some black cardstock. These fun sentiments come from the Love Bug stamp set.
