BEE YOU ... BEE WONDERFUL by Linda Pearson

A little card front created or small journal page using the beautiful Bee the Sunshine paper collection kit designed by Fiona Paltridge. 

Bee the Sunshine paper collection kit  - sunny days cards and tags

Floral Arrangement clear stamp set

Pretty Fields 12x12 scrapbooking paper

White Cardstock 350gsm

Colour blast Shimmer Dusts – assorted colour

I cut the Pretty Fields 12x12 scrapbooking paper down to suit the card (at least 6x 8 inch), up to A4 journal size.

Cut 2 cards from the Sunny Days paper to suit (see main image example).

Stamp out the floral stems and glass vase stamps from the Floral Arrangement clear stamp set using black archival ink onto White Cardstock 350gsm.  Use the thicker card when adding Colour blast Shimmer Dusts as water will be mixed to colour the stamped elements.

Mix the chosen Colour blast Shimmer Dusts in a paint palette with water, stirring to activate the powder.  Colour the stems - flowers, leaves and add a little colour to the jar.

From the Bee the Sunshine paper collection kit  - sunny days cards and tags and cut out Bee You image from the sheet.

Once dry, distress the all the elements, flowers, jar, bee you and the edges of the cut cards as well as the main larger card piece.

Using diluted white paint or gesso add splatter to the main background piece and the two smaller embellishment pieces.

Optional step:  add strips of coordinating washi tape where the vase of flowers will be placed on page (this is to anchor the main image to the page.

Adhere the two rectangle card pieces as per the main image.  Secure foam tape behind the bee you honeycomb image then secure to the page connecting the two card images.

Adhere the vase and flowers to the page resting on the washi tape.

Handwrite the words bee wonderful in black pen across the bottom of the page.


Thank you for stopping by and look forward to sharing with you again soon.


Cheers from Linda
