Around the World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop with Joy Clair

Image may contain: text

Hello Friends - I was invited by Joy Clair to be a Guest Designer and create a card for World Card Making Day. I am so honored to a part of the fun and festivities of World Card Making day. This is a hop will have you so inspired. I hope you participate in the activities.

I created this card using the Joy Clair Bee Kind Stamp Set. I made this fun shaker card.

Supplies used are as follows: Joy Clair Bee Kind Stamp Set, Inks: Tsukineko StazOn Jet Black Ink & Memonto Tuxedo Black Ink, Zig Wink of Stella Glitter Pen - Clear, Recollections Heavy Weight Card stock - White, Dark Yellow & Black, Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers: CT3, CT4, GY4, AB1 & Blender, Darice Brand Sequins & Beads.

I stamped out the bees twice and the hive. I colored my images with Spectrum Noir Markers. I then fuzzy cut the out and set them aside. I die cut the hexagon background from dark yellow cardstock and frame from black carstock I used the negative instead of the frame.

I then adhered the hexagon background to an A2 card base. Next, I adhered the Hive to the top left of the card making sure that the frame did cover it. Next I stamped the Bee trail onto the background.  I added a bit of shimmer spray over the Hive and background set aside to dry.

I stamped my sentiment onto a piece of acetate with StazOn Jet Black Ink. I adhered the acetate to the back of my black frame. Next, I took a two small pieces of black wire about an 1" long and formed a V shape. I then used needle nose pliers to curl the ends to make two of the Bee's antenna. I then adhered three of the Bees on the front. I then flipped it over an added a double layer of foam tape. Next, I brush my embossing power tool onto the inside of the card front so that way it wouldn't have any stickiness. I added mix of beads and sequins to the card front. I then adhere the hexagon background to the card front. Flipped it over and I shook my card.
