Bee Happy

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a Slimline card I created using stamps, dies and papers from Divinity Designs September release.

I am just loving these new Buzzing Gnomes, these are so cute. These are part of the Buzzing Gnomes Paper/Die Duos set which contains Slimline sized patterned papers in 4 different patterns, plus 2 plain papers and sheets of these gnome images with a matching die to die cut all the images in one go. No coloring which makes it so easy to create a card. I couldn't wait to play with these.

To create my card I used Slimline dies including Slimline Card Base; Slimline Pierced Layering Rectangles which I used for the blue paper for the sky and layered using the Slimline Rectangles and Slimline Scalloped Rectangles die sets.

I used one of the grass dies from the Slimline Grasses die set to create the grassy hill the gnomes are standing on.

To add texture to my sky area, I used the new Slimline Lattice Embossing Folder blending ink around the edges of the panel using Divinity Designs blending brushes.

After assembling the card, I used the Bee Happy sentiment die set to add the sentiment to the top left hand corner of the card. I die cut the shadow from the same blue paper I used for the sky to help that disappear into the background.

For the inside of my card, I used the same Slimline grass die to add the grassy border along the bottom of the card and added another of the gnomes and flower to the grass.

I added the bee themed sentiment using the new Bee Mine stamp set.
