Vellum Florals | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Hump day! I recently been trying to create more cards that don’t involve A LOT of coloring! Heat embossing on vellum is a fun technique that I’ve been using to add florals without coloring.

To create this card, I started by inking up an A2 piece of bristol Strathmore with distress oxides (in Kitsch Flamingo, Festive Berries, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw, Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, and Shaded Lilac) in a circular pattern. Then I splattered some water droplets to add dimension. Lastly I added white pigment ink on to the basketweave stencil. I dried it with a heat gun to make sure it does not smudge.

I heat embossed the flower bouquet from Spring Joy Bouquet stamp set in white embossing powder and die cut with the coordinating dies. For the sentiment, I used one from the Pickup Lines stamp set, embossed in white on black cardstock, and die cut with the coordinating die. To assemble the card I trimmed down the inked background, adhered it to a A2 top folding white card base, and added the floral image and sentiment with some foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by today! If you are inspired and create please remember to tag @honeybeestamps and #honeybeestamps on Instagram!

Happy Crafting!
