You Are Bee-utiful

Happy 4th of July!  Independence day here in the US, a day for picnics, fireworks, warm weather and a day to appreciate our freedom!  It's also a very special day because it's inspiration day at the Heartfelt Creations Blog, if you get a chance, come over and visit.

For my card this week, I used the Sweet as Honey Paper collection.  The finished card is 5 x 7 and I used the new Intricate Swirl Frames Die to frame my floral queen bee scene.

The bee hive from the Sweet as Honey set was stamped, sponged with ink and cut out with corresponding dies.  The sweet bee maiden from the Honey Bee Maiden Cling stamp set was stamped on water color paper and colored with Zig markers.
The flowers were created using the Botanical Rose Cling Stamp set and corresponding dies, sponged with Bamboo Leaves and Buttercup ink and sculpted with the 3D Floral Basics Sculpting Mold.  For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/FSdPL7nXvQE.  The stamens were made with the Sunrise Lily Die, each arm of the stamen was cut in half lenghtwise, glue was added to the tips and they were dipped in Ribbit prills.

The sentiment is from the same paper pad and is framed in bees from the Sweet as Honey stamp and die sets.
