Honey Bee Stamps - Autumn Blessings Blog Hop Day 2


Hello everyone and welcome! 

For today's blog hop, we are showcasing the fabulous products from the Autumn Blessings Release.  If you love creating festive fall and Halloween projects like I do, then you will find some new must have stamps and dies in this collection.    

***Be sure to leave a comment on every stop along the hop for a chance to win a $50 gift card to the Honey Bee Stamps store. You're next stop will be Jana Millen's blog (full blog hop line up for day 2 is listed at the end of this post)


I'm sharing a card today that features an autumn arrangement with hint of Halloween fun.  I created the arrangement using the Fall Bouquets Honey Cuts.  I instantly fell in love with this die set.  The possibilities are endless for making beautiful bouquets, arrangements, or wreaths.  


I started with an A2 sized white card base. I used a gingham pattern from the new Harvest Festival 6x6 paper pad to create a border behind the main background panel.  The purple background is a blend of Milled Lavender, Seedless Preserves, and Wilted Violet Oxide Inks.  I die cut all the elements for the arrangement from colored card stock and then used Distress Ink and Copic markers to add shading and details to each piece.  


I stamped the greeting, YOU ARE faBoolous from FaBOOlous Sentiments,  directly onto the pumpkin with black ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I find this results in a more intense black with a glossy finish. I adhered  the arrangement to the background panel with dimensional foam squares.  Lastly I added a bakers twine bow the arrangement and a few tiny orange gems.  The tiny gems are from the Perfect Petals Gem Stickers set.
