Now on to my cards. For the card above, I made one of my Center Easel Cards that I did a tutorial for HERE. I used the fun set, Be Happy for my image, the bees, and one sentiment. I used Sweeter Than Honey for the other sentiment. I colored the image with Copics and sponged the background with distress inks. I added Twinkling H2O's to the bees wings for a shimmer, but I can't seem to catch that in the photo. For my side panels, I used the Honeycomb Background, and I clear embossed yellow card stock, then I sponged with distress inks and clear embossed the entire sheet again to give a shiny honey filled look. I tore a strip of this same paper for the bottom. I cut the sentiment with the ODBD Custom Recipe Card and Tags Die and tied it on with thin twine. The sentiment on the inside is cut with the ODBD Custom Elegant Oval Dies. I used black twine and glued it to the honeycomb in a bee trail. It was a fun card to make!
For my second card, I used the gorgeous new Blooming Garden designer paper, and the awesome Bee Balm image, as well as my favorite, the Hummingbird Single and the ODBD Custom Hummingbird Die. I also used the ODBD Custom Daily Chain Background Die. I love it! I framed it with a Spellbinders Labels 28 and trimmed off the extra. This was pretty quick and easy to make, as I let the designer paper do most of the work. The images are watercolored with Tim Holtz Distress Markers. I embellished with a few white pearls and a rose wrinkled seam binding bow.
To recap, here are the new ODBD products I used today:
