Using the Starburst technique with the beautiful Blooming Garden Collection was so simple and I love how it turned out! Those cute bees are from Zinnia with the matching die from Zinnia and Leaves. (the bee from Bee Happy also works with the die!!)

My tag is from our custom Recipe Card and Tags Die and you might recognize that border from last month, Beautiful Borders.

My next card is a little more involved, not hard, just more to it,  a tent card.

Inside I stamped and colored Bee Happy with the verse in Memento Tuxedo Black, then stamped Honeycomb Mini in Adirondack Caramel, Stitch Background in Adirondack Butterscotch, and sponged the edges with Distress Wild Honey. If you’ll notice, Stitch Background coordinates with the Designer Paper!

I cut my window using our custom Elegant Ovals die, then traced the inside of the oval on a piece of white cardstock and hand cut for my mat which I colored with a Copic. It is sandwiched in between the card base and the DP.
For some of the clover to hang over, I cut around it with a craft knife, slid the die under and put through my Grand Calibur.

I hand cut the honey jar, colored with Copics and applied Crystal Effects. I love that it had little air bubbles and looks just like honey!

Audrey Ann said...

Dawn, Oh My Goodness - your cards are so gorgeous!! The first was my favorite until I saw the second LOL!! Still I love them both - the sun burst of beautiful papers and the fun little bees flitting about just make the first card so special to me, and the second is so vivid that I'm sure I can smell the greenery and taste the honey from here!! Seriously - the creative use of the papers and the amazing honey jar (which looks so real!) just make this one over the top beautiful - not to mention the fun design. Beautiful work my friend!
Hugs & Blessings,
Audrey
