Hello ScrapbookPal friends! Birgit here with you today, from Crafting While I Wait. Today's project is super sweet in every way, using products from Honeybee Stamps.
Let me introduce you to Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers: Fall Treats. If you have a sweet tooth, this set is for you! This die set is filled with iconic candy shapes like Swedish Fish, Gummy Bears, Candy Corn, wrapped candies, jelly beans and more!
I started by cutting out several of the candy dies in soft, pastel colors that coordinated well together. Some of the candies have two layers, so once I glued them together using Bearly Art Precision Liquid Glue. I went around the edge of each candy with coordinating distress ink using a blending sponge.
The dies have etched details, which give them a realistic look. I also added some accents using a white gel pen.
Once the candies were done, I moved on to the card front. I created a frame using the Honey Bee Stamps Fancy Fall Layering Frames by inlaying the large oval frame inside the large rectangle frame die. I cut the frame out of warm yellow cardstock. These dies have beautifully embossed details!
To enhance the details, I used the Ranger Ink Distress Brayer and rolled Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink over the top of the embossed frame. This really made the details in the frame stand out.
I then started gluing the candies over the top of the frame in a random pattern, keeping a balance of colors around the frame. I stamped the sentiments from Honey Bee Stamps Mini Messages: Sweets onto thin strips and adhered them using Scrapbook Adhesives Foam Squares to add dimension to the card.
This card sure made my mouth water and it came out super sweet!
