Hello everyone!  Betsy here today from Caring Heart Cards sharing with you a beautiful card made with the Extraordinary Digital Stamp Set!  This is such a gorgeous set and the images are quite different than you might expect…I love them all!

Let me show you how I made my card!  I started by composing my image and sentiment in the computer and printing it out onto Neenah 80lb Solar White card stock.

Even before I started to color my image I wanted to die cut it.  I used a pierced rectangle die set.  I chose the die in the set that is 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.

 There is not a large area to color, so I wanted to make sure my image popped on my card.  I did this by using bright colors.


I used Copic Markers for coloring.  For the bee I used Y02, Y08, Y17, Y38, YR04.  Two different green mixes for the 2 different types of leaves.  And YG11 & YG63, and YG06 & G14 for the other.  Blue Violets for the flowers – BV000, BV02 and BV13.  For the wings I used: B0000, RV00, YG0000, V01.  For just a bit of added brightness to the flowers I glazed them with RV10 and RV63.  I set that piece aside to work on the background.

Using a honeycomb stencil and Mustard Seed Oxide ink, I stenciled an A2 size panel.

Once it was dry, I used a die from the same pierced set that was 4″ x 5 1/4″.

To give this piece just a bit of depth, I used a YR21 Copic Marker and shaded the bottom half of each of the hexagons.  This was not deep shadowing, just enough so you know it’s there.

Now I was ready to assemble my card.

I adhered the stenciled panel to my white A2 size top folding card base.  I adhered my main panel by adding a piece of adhesive foam the back.  I added shimmer to the wings of the bee and the flowers.

So hard to catch a photo of shimmer!  It’s so pretty!  I also added some yellow gems around my image.  And that finished my card for today!

This stamp set is available in the shop and there are 2 other images included as well!  It’s one of my favorites!

Thanks so much for spending time here today!
