Whimsy Stamps GD..."Bee You"


I hope you had a blessed Easter.  Today I am sharing with you some exciting news.  I am the Guest Designer for the month of April for Whimsy Stamps!  I am so excited, humbled and honored.  My e-buddy, Kim (Scraps of Faith), recommended me and the very sweet ladies over there were gracious enough to send me an invite.  I have worked with WS images before for Ready, Set, Create Magazine and really loved the diverse selection. 

Today I want to share with you a card I made using the Whimsy Animals Accessories Set 1.  This set comes with the most cutest bee, worm, grass and beehive.  I chose to play with the beehive and wanted to try a different kind of technique on it.  I followed a tutorial from Mariska, but then changed it up ever so slightly (used a different glue and added glaze).  I loved the way it turned out.  This technique is super cool.

Here's my image...

As you can see I made the image 3D and added some Glassy Glaze to give it a shine.  The honeycomb design in the background of the image is from Wax Fruit Company.  The paper is Basic Grey and I stitched around the edges and finished it off with a bumblebee charm and some white pearl swirls.  I used Spellbinders Circle diecuts and Beaded circle. 

If you would like to try out Mariska 3D technique, you can get the Olba glue she uses from Whimsy Stamps!  I didn't use this glue only because I was wanted to get my card done, but it is cool that it is now available to us here in the U.S. along with the syringes.  I am going to continue to practice making images keep on the look out for me to come. :-)

Thanks for looking and commenting!
