Sending Love (Again)

Spellbinders | Beeblossom

Hi everyone!

I can’t believe April is almost over!

I thought these gorgeous Beeblossom dies from Spellbinders’ new “Through the Garden Gate” collection would be a perfect way to celebrate spring. Beeblossom (also called gaura) is a perennial – which is perfect for me since I’m not much of a gardener, but I do like pretty things. 😊

I broke out of my comfort zone a bit with a textured background on this card and I just love how it turned out! You’ll have to let me know what you think!

To make this card, I used a stencil and white embossing paste to create the textured background and set it aside to dry. Meanwhile, I colored my flowers by ink-bending them and using a yellow Copic marker for the tips of the stamens.

I formed the flowers and leaves using Susan’s Garden Ultimate Tool Kit – which includes several tools that help you form the petals and leaves to give them dimension. Once the flowers were formed and my background was dry, I assembled the flowers and arranged them on my background.

I layered the card front onto my card base, hot-foiled a sentiment, and added a few gold sequins to finish the card.

I hope you like this project and I’d love to hear what you think of the background!

Have a wonderfully creative day!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
