Cyndee's Workshop!

Cyndee hosted the neatest workshop on Saturday. She had a special request for me. That request was to have a "bee" themed workshop. Cyndee loves the whole honeycomb, hexagon and bee idea. I had made a card quite some time ago with hexagons and bees on it and she totally fell in love! Here is the first card I demonstrated for the group:

It's hard to see in the photo but I used Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds on some of the hexagons. If you click on the photo below you may be able to see it a little better:

I embossed using the Honeycomb Embossing Folder first on my Whisper White Cardstock panel and then again on a Daffodil Delight Cardstock piece. I hand-cut the hexagon shapes using my Paper Snips and glued them over the white layer. The Dazzling Diamonds is sprinkled over the Crystal Effects while it is still wet!

Card Supplies:
  •  Stamps: A Dozen Thoughts, Postage Collection, Gorgeous Grunge
  • Inks: Daffodil Delight, StazOn Jet Black
  • Accessories: 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon
  • Tools: Honeycomb Embossing Folder, Big Shot Machine, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds
  • Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Whisper White

For the 2nd card, I used the "Double-Embossing Technique" with 2 different embossing folders. If you've never tried this, I have a tutorial HERE on how to achieve this. Give it a try!

Notice how the honeycomb embossing does not run into the designer frame that is embossed? And I used the Wide Oval Punch to add the oval in the center of my frame, it fits perfectly!

Card Supplies:
  • Stamps: Trust God, Backyard Basics
  • Inks: VersaMark, Jet Black StazOn
  • Cardstock: Basic Black, So Saffron, Whisper White
  • Accessories: Chevron Ribbon, Pearl Jewels
