Hello from Toni: Honey Bee Autumn Maple Leaf

Hi, everyone! My cards today feature the Honey Bee Lovely Layers Maple Leaf die which is *cough* to die for.

On the below version I sprinkled Strathmore Bristol Smooth card with Lindy's Magicals and a touch of Brusho. Just a little spritz of water and patience is all that was needed to create this colorful background.

I then pounced the Honey Bee Lovely Layers Maple Leaf with Versamark and Ranger Copper embossing powder. Ack!  I stamped the Honey Bee large Autumn sentiment the same.

I stamped the last part of the Autumn sentiment white on black for a punch of non-color.

For the second card, I sponged and spattered cardstock with Distress Oxide Speckled Egg, Mustard Seed, Crackling Campfire, and Carved Pumpkin. I love how that turned out. 

I cut out the Honey Bee Lovely Layers Maple Leaf, adhering the inner cuts onto a piece of kraft cardstock with the leaf veins curled up for added, easy dimension.

Notice the texture of the card front?  I used the textured side of a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock.  I prefer using the smooth side of watercoloring but mucked it up so used the reverse side for this.

I'll see you again soon.  If you'd like to check out my other creations in the meantime, you can visit my blog, Frankie Helps Craft, my Instagram, or my Pinterest Board.
