Honey Bee Stamps Country Lavender by Kathy

This scene makes me feel like I’m in a country cottage…and I can almost smell the lavender and wood!  My card features the lovely Honey Bee Stamps – Country Lavender stamps and dies.

  1. First, I embossed the white cardstock base layer with Sizzix 3-D Texture Fades Embossing Folder - Brickwork by Tim Holtz.  I embossed the right side using the entire length of the embossing folder and then embossed the remainder of the layer.
  1. I created the window by cutting dark brown cardstock with Honey Bee Stamps – Barn Wood Planks dies and cutting the planks into ¼ “ strips.  I assembled the strips into a square then a cross in the center.  I layered light blue cardstock behind this created ‘window’ and adhered it all to the card.
  1. Using the Honey Bee Stamps – Barn Wood Planks dies, I cut dark brown cardstock and adhered planks along the bottom of the window and across the card.
  1. The flowers, vase and bucket images are Copic colored.  I assembled the florals in the holders as shown and popped up the bouquets in front of the window using Scrapbook Adhesive Crafty Foam Tape.

  1. On the other side of the card, I stamped and colored the flowers and sign.  The ‘hello’ words of the sign were stamped and diecut separately then colored with a Copic marker before being adhered to the sign image.
  1. Using another strip of the barn wood planks, I tied and adhered bunches of flowers to the strip and popped it up onto the card.  I then popped up the sign to the end of the strip.

  1. To finish, I adhered a couple flowers to the bottom, right of the card.
