WOW Embossing Powders and Honey Bee Stamps blog hop

Hello there and welcome if you’re new here. I’m thrilled to be taking part in this hop between WOW and Honey Bee Stamps. I was sent this gorgeous package from Honey Bee and I couldn’t wait to play with the goodies inside.

They very generously sent me a fabulous flower border stamp and die called Zen Floral which has a very useful die to go with it. I used it to create this bordered card along with a Honey Cuts die called Hello Gorgeous Words.

Here’s how I created the frame. I stamped, embossed with WOW Oasis powder and die cut the border four times. I really needed the grid on my mat here to lay it out in a square and taped it down.

Using the grid I marked my mitred corner

and cut through both layers.  I did this for all four corners.

I then taped up the corners to hold them together while I turned the frame over.

Of course the corner pattern doesn’t match perfectly, it’s not meant to do that but it’s only the little bits which stick up from the corner which give it away. So I just snipped these off.

So here’s my finished card. I embossed the “Thanks” with Florida Sunset from WOW and used Primary Ebony powder to emboss the little bee.

Thanks for stopping by.  Read below and follow on to continue on the hop to discover other amazing designer projects.

    That’s brilliant!!!! Would never thought to have tried that but now that I’ve seen you do it I’m wanting to dig through my stash and see what other stamps that technique would work for!!! Thanks for the inspiration! Love the color of EP you used too!

      Thank you. I think it works so well because the image is so busy you don’t notice it doesn’t match at the corners plus it comes with a die so each cut is exactly the same. I’m sure it would work with lots of border stamps though. Give it a try and let me know.

  12. Very creative! What a pretty floral frame.

  26. lorraine turner

    Wow that is some technique to get a frame created from the stamp. I would have loved to have seen it done on a video tutorial but I totally understand that it may have been too difficult to film such a technique. But I am definitely going to have a go at it myself so thank you for the inspiration. x
