No Stamping Required

Some of us are creative and crafty but get scared of using ink and stamps.  We get the feeling that it's so permanent. So let's look at a card that doesn't use stamping... on the front... unless you want to :)

Featured Item: Sliding Star Framelits & Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder


For the outside of this card, you're using the framelits to create a spinner card, but again, no stamping on here.  And still, what an impressive card!

Start with a Very Vanilla Card Base
Add a layer of So Saffron, but first run it through the Big Shot with your Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.
Attach to your card base using dimensionals.  Very important!
Now use your Sliding Star Framelits to create the circle spin space for your "honeycomb" 
Next, cut out a bee with your framelits from basic black cardstock, attach a piece of So Saffron ( or a brighter yellow if you choose) behind the bee to add the yellow stripes.  
Attach this to a Watermelon Wonder flower.
Create your spinner piece from here.  If you havenm't done this before, you take 2 pennies or washers, attach them to each other using 2 stacked dimensionals.  Then, attach your spin piece (in this case the bee on a flower) and attach it to one penny with a dimensional.  Now slip one penny through the circle space and then the other side, so you've got one penny on top and one inside.
Now your bee will spin.


Now of course, if you need a little stamping, there is always the inside!  

Use Watermelon Wonder and So Saffron ink with the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set.
Add the dots along the outside edge for a fun look.
Now stamp the bee in Archival Black ink and color in his stripes with a marker. 

Or leave it blank.  Either way, what a fun card!
