Crafty Secrets Queen Bee

Hello blogging friends! Today, I have a card to share with you using one of the New Crafty Secrets stamp sets, Queen Bee.

This is one of those cards that I wasn't sure where I was going with it but I am very happy with the outcome. The color combination is a little different for me but I have to say I really like it and I hope you do too! ;-)

I started by stamping the images from the Queen Bee stamp set on to an oval die cut. Then I added some color using Copic markers (listed below). To make the die cut I used the Grand Calibur™ and S4-314 Lacey Ovals from Spellbinders™. After I had all of the coloring done I applied adhesive to the die cut and adhered it to Nestaboard™ Lacey Ovals from Want2Scrap™. Then I added the Nestabling™ Lacey Ovals Orange Rhinestones and Baby Bling Turquoise Rhinestones around the oval die cut. I also made a little tag using a sentiment from Queen Bee stamp set and LF-002 Creative Book Pages Two.

Here is a close up of the stamped images. I added diamond stickles to the crown and wings.

To create the flower and leaves I used S5-050 Rose Creations and S4-328 Foliage.

To create the border I used S5-058 Ironwork Accents die template and lace and trim.

To create the background I used the New Grand Impressabilities GI-004 Fancy Flourish and then made the embossing really pop by adding a couple colors of ink.
