SC250 Honeycomb Birthday

Hi Stampers! 

I wanted to play with the new hostess set, Postage Collection and decided to use the Splitcoaststampers SC250 Sketch Challenge (this was an older sketch challenge but that is what I love about Splitcoaststampers Challenges- you can go back and review and do them whenever you like :-))  I hope to take the time to go back and complete a card for each sketch and color challenge one day :-)

To create this card:

Use the Big Shot™ along with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Soho Subway Designer Series Paper and adhere to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock. 

Also emboss a piece of So Saffron cardstock using the Hexagon Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (ink the smooth surface of the embossing folder with Sahara Sand Classic Ink prior to embossing).   Cut along the edges by hand and adhere to the center of the background panel.

Ink the wreath stamp and the bee from Postage Collection using Early Espresso Classic Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.  Color the bee with Stampin’ Write markers in So Saffron and Pool Party and the wreath with Gumball Green.

Punch the wreath/bee image out with the 1 ¼” Circle Punch and sponge Sahara Sand Classic Ink over the edges.  Mount onto circles punched from Early Espresso cardstock using the 1 3/8” Circle Punch.

Another view trying to get a glimpse of the Shimmer Paint :-)
Add the Paper Tea Lace Doily and the bee circle images using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the ½” Early Espresso Quilted Satin Ribbon Bow (retired) to the top of the card.

Stamp the sentiment from Wetlands using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, add the bee image and cut the banners using a 1” Square Punch.  Mount onto Early Espresso cardstock and adhere to the card front.

Add the Pearls and spray the entire card with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint (retired as well) to give a bit of shimmer (you cannot see the shimmer in the photograph but it is there).
