If you get chance join me on Hochanda tonight at 6pm for the launch of the One Day Special ( Freeview 85 , Sky 673 or online at www.Hochanda.com) and the launch of my new Bee Balm collection. There are some new releases in the Additions and media die ranges as well as some really useful Based Card dies.
I thought I would hare a card made using the collection today featuring the flowers which are stamped and die cut in one pass using my Flower Plate idea ( tune in to see how easy this is to use!)

Today I thought I would share another new dies from the Bee Balm collection here is a closer look at the Bee Balm Background which matches, as shown here, with the Bee Balm Ovals perfectly ( its almost as if they were designed that way lol)
I added the butterflies this time using the large butterflies set to add a little detail to what is a quick simple card, honest!

Today I promised I would share a card using the new, to be launched on Friday night, Swirl leaves die that matches with the Bee Balm collection.
For todays card I have matched the leaves with another new set launching on friday the birds and cages.
To kmae the spray I simply cut the dies ( the set has 2 dies in mirror image so that they 'go' each way) once in white and once in silver and shaped them before creating the flourish down the card.

I had a fab weekend in Kent at the Create It show and it was so lovely to meet so many old and new friends and members of the blog family!
I promised yesterday that I would be starting to sneak peak my new collection today so I present the Bee Balm collection. This is all based arround the Bee Balm flower ( a Bergamot but I prefer the Colloquial name Bee Balm!)
This is a deceptively simple card made using g the Bee Balm flower plate die and matching stamp set. As with the Gerbera Daisy there is a single stamp with all the flowers own it and a matching plate that slots over using the registration marks on the corner of the stamped image. The stamped bees come form the stamp set wit the flowers.
I simply added the swirl leaves die and some hat pins to finish.
