I can’t let the Lasting Elegance Dies retire without showing you one more time. If you click on the picture in my Product List below, it will take you to my store where you can purchase the die set for $8.50. The original price was $34.00; what a deal!
After using the Lasting Elegance border die to cut from Very Vanilla Cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″), I embossed it with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.
Usually I stamp before embossing, but I wanted to see if it would work this way. Stamping the foliage and pollen (Garden Wishes Stamp Set) in Shaded Spruce Ink was successful, because I used the Stamparatus. This enabled me to stamp several times, as well as adding a touch of Just Jade Ink to the “poofs.”
Next, I stamped the star of the show, the bee, in Early Espresso Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock, and used a Dandy Wishes Die for cutting. A Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend was used to color the bee, a perfect pop of color. Then, I used a die to make the bee’s trail. Isn’t it the cutest?
The sentiment, “hello,” is from the Well Said Stamp Set, but there is also “hello” in the Garden Wishes Stamp Set. I stamped the word in Early Espresso Ink, cut it with a Dandy Wishes Die, and attached it with a Dimensional.
The card base is Shaded Spruce, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.
I was inspired by Fusion.
And, I received color inspiration from the Better Homes & Gardens magazine. It’s always fun to see color trends, and today’s card is an example of using Very Vanilla with Shaded Spruce for the “cream & sea green” trend.
