Rubber Stamp Tapestry came out with three new bee inspired stamp sets and sent them to me. I was thrilled to get them and made a card to go with them. The sets are Bee-utiful Day which is a red rubber stamp set that needs to be cut apart. I show how to cut this set out. I store mine in cd cases and use Aleene’s Tack it Over and Over to glue the stamps inside. I use a label maker and create a label with the name of the company and stamp set to put on the end of the cd case that doesn’t open.
The second and third sets of stamps are both peg stamps. The first is called Chamomile Bee and the second is Field of Clovers.
I used two of the sentiments on the card from Bee-utiful Day and stamped one inside the card and the other on a strip that is 2 1/2″ wide and 5″ tall. I used a die to make a row of small holes the length of the strip on both sides. The card is an A2 size which is 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ . I took a piece of white cardstock and used a Darice embossing folder of a honeycomb background that was 5 1/4 x 4″.
I used the mini buzzing bee, chamomile sprig, mall schamomile flower, fern, and open chamomile flower to stamp on the strip. I used Gina K’s Sweet Corn ink to rub across the embossed paper and used one of my chip brushes to go around the edge of the strip of paper. I stamped bamboo leaves from Memento dew drops and Espresso Truffle for my inks. I colored the flowers with alcohol markers and the colors are listed on the video screen and used a Chameleon blender pen to blend the colors on the flowers.
Stamped ” have a bee-utiful day” on the inside of the card and used the sprig with the same green ink and one of the chamomile flowers to stamp around the sentiment and colored the centers of the flowers with the same alcohol markers.
I put foam tape behind the thin strip of paper and put tape runner and wet glue on the back of the embossed piece and laid it on the card base and added the strip with the stamping to the front of the card in the center.
I stamped some of the chamomile flowers and the sprigs on the envelope and colored them in with the same alcohol markers.
