Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is NATURE. This was a fun one since just about every stamp I own has something to do with nature, whether it be flowers, plants, animals, or scenery!
I chose Honeybee Home because as a gardener I love pollinators, and things are really starting to bloom around here with the bees happily buzzing.
I started by brushing So Saffron on the card base, then stamping the sprigs in So Saffron on a scrap of cardstock. After embossing with the Hive 3D folder, I tore it randomly and adhered it to the card base then tied Black & White Gingham ribbon around the card front. The floral stem was stamped in Memento ink, colored with Stampin' Blends and cut with the matching Honeybee Blooms die and popped up on dimensionals. A few Bumblebee Trinkets (retiring!) were added with glue dots.
That's all for today - see you next Saturday! Up next is Libby Fens at Libby Stamps. Or click the "back" button to go back to Lori at Loritamarie Crafts.
