Hi there! I’m up on the Honey Bee Stamps blog today, and I’ve got some autumnal inspiration for you using some beautiful new goodies from the Autumn Splendor release! I seem to be trying to will fall temperatures into existence by creating fall projects. Isn’t that how it works? It should be, in any case. Maybe the beautiful blue skies and warm temps prompted me to pair the fall sunflowers from Garden Harvest with some bright white die cuts. Let’s get started with the details!
I began by stamping some blooms, foliage, and an acorn (what says fall more than an acorn and an oak leaf?) from Garden Harvest onto some white cardstock using the Honey Bee Stamps Intense Black Ink. I colored them with a variety of yellow Copic markers, adding some touches of deep forest green to keep that little hint of Indian Summer. I die cut the finished images using the coordinating Honey Cuts. I also die cut a Grapevine Wreath and bow from some more white cardstock, arranging the flowers and bow in a little cluster and adhering them to the white wreath.
Next, I created a woodgrain background using the Barn Wood Planks dies. I staggered them so that they would look a bit more rustic than a true shiplap background.
I stamped the beautiful greeting from Sweater Weather using Intense Black Ink on some more white cardstock, then die cut the greeting with the coordinating Honey Cuts. I love that you have the option to die cut the sentiment just as it’s stamped as well as the option to die cut each segment individually so that you can arrange the sentiment however you like! I adhered the wreath and greeting to the woodgrain background using lots of foam adhesive. When using white-on-white (or any tone-on-tone) like this, I like to use lots of adhesive to give extra dimension and definition to the white die cuts.
Well, that’s all for my project today! I hope you’re enjoying some cool crafty time while it’s still warm outside. I can’t wait for the temps to drop… so then I can enjoy crafty time with my windows open, haha! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous day!
