Bold Thanks

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for the MFT Camp Create Day 3:  Background Bonanza.  I used the Framework stencil to sponge on two different blue inks (blueberry around edges, Blu Raspberry in the middle) onto smooth white card stock.  I then offset the stencil just a bit, and added a third blue ink - Tropical Teal - and sponged it again.  I like the shadow effect it created!  I then used a retired 'Thanks' die to cut out the background layer I had created, as well as the card base.  I cut it out 5 times, then adhered it inside the card so when you open it, you can still see it.  The stamped sentiment is from the Grateful For You stamp set that I embossed with white embossing powder onto black licorice card stock.  I added a few clear sequins as an extra detail.

Pretty in Pink

HI all!  Happy Thursday - yes, I'm posting a day late ;)   Almost Friday!!!  I have a pretty in pink Hello card for you today using the following Honey Bee Stamps products:  Lotus Blossom stamp and matching die, A2 Double Stitched Frames die, and the Hello dies.  This little stamp sure can pack a big punch when embossed!  I embossed the outer edge of my pink lemonade card base, then added a few extra around the sentiment.  I love the layered Hello dies - such a cool look!  I added a few sequins to the Lotus tucked under the 'hello'.

Happy flowery birthday

Hi all!  I'm here with some flowery-goodness using the Honey Bee Stamps set, Country Blooms.  I'm kinda totally obsessed with this set.  ;)  I colored them with Copics then used the matching dies to cut everything out.  I used the smallest of the Hexagon Layering Background Stencils to sponge in some color on the layer directly behind the flowers and sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Happy Everything stamp set - I loooove the mix of fonts!

You are Fintastic

Hi all!  Well, we're halfway through the week - we can DO this!  ;)

So I have to say that this has to be in my top 20, maybe top 10, favorite cards that I've ever made!  It makes me so happy when I get an idea and the finished project turns out better than imagined.  The new Honey Bee Stamps set, Mermaid Song, is a large set with so many possibilities!  This mermaid is a good size, perfect for taking center stage of any card!  I colored her with Copics then fussy cut her and layered her over a smooth white card base that I had sponged with two blue inks, Blu Raspberry and Blueberry, and spritzed with water.  I curved the 'fintastic' sentiment for more interest.

CAS-ual Fridays Inspiration Challenge!

Hi all!  It's time for a new CAS-ual Fridays Inspiration Challenge.  This week it's about Friendship, so I had to break out the Mon Ami stamp set and dies. I used lemon drop and orange zest inks on my card base then layered a circle die over that.  I also sponged the sentiment banner.  The flowers were colored with Copic markers then adhered with foam adhesive.

Smile...

Hi all!  I have a cheery little rainbow card for you today because seriously, who doesn't love rainbows??  I embossed the new Honey Bee Stamps Ocean Borders background stamp with white embossing powder over a piece of watercolor paper that I had watercolored with various inks.  Who says that background can only be used for waves? ;)  I think used the Smile die and backed it with white glittered paper using foam adhesive.  The sentiment is from the Smile stamp set and is also embossed with white embossing powder onto black card stock.

You are fiercely awesome

HI all!  Here's a card I made for the MFTWSC342 using the new stamp set, Fierce Friends.  I did quite a bit of masking here.  I colored the not-so-fierce tigers with Copics, then used grape jelly, orange zest and lemon drop inks to sponge the background.  A little spritzing with water adds such a cool look - I'm obsessed!  I also used Copics to create the grass.

Salty Kisses & Mermaid Wishes

Hi all!  I'm back with another mermaid card because HOW CUTE are these new Honey Bee stamps!  I colored the Ocean Bliss mermaid with Copics.  She is popped up on foam adhesive over a background that I created by sponging two different blue inks onto watercolor card stock then spritzed with water.  The sentiments are from the larger set, Mermaid Song and are embossed with white embossing powder onto black licorice card stock.  I also added the crab and starfish from the Mermaid Song set.  :)  I'd love to know what your favorite set is from the new release!

Have a fairy happy birthday

Hi all!  Here's a card I made using the latest MFTWSC341 sketch.  I went a little opposite with the sketch added watercolored layers on the ends and the square frame rather than the curved middle section :)  These fairies from the Fairy Happy stamp set are some of the cutest ones on the market!  I colored them with Copics.  I used an element from one of my favorite Blueprints (#25) for the sentiments.  Added a few sequins for more fun!  Everything was adhered with foam adhesive (except the sequins) to a Smooth White card base.

Honey Bee Stamps New Release Blog Hop!

Hi all!  It's FINALLY here!  Welcome to the Honey Bee Stamps Blog Swim!  It's an ocean-themed release so yes, we're having a swim, not a hop!  Everything is available for purchase Now in our shop HERE.  And we're going to Shellabrate with some sweet prizes! ;)  TWO lucky winners will each receive a $50 gift certificate to the Honey Bee store!  All you have to do is comment on the Honey Bee stamps Blog, as well as all of the other designers, by July 16th.  Winners will be announced July 17th at Noon PST.  The fun gets started on the Honey Bee Blog HERE!

My first card features the lovely Mermaid Song stamp set.  I love that this image is so big.  This card measures about 4 1/2 x 4 1/2, to give you an idea.  I stamped it on watercolor paper then used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to color everything in.  I added the Hello dies (cut out with Blu Raspberry and Smooth White card stocks) without trying to cover up too much of the image.




For my second card, I used the sweet Ocean Bliss stamp set.  I colored the mermaid with Copics then covered the rock with Desert Oasis Sand.  I love the texture the sand adds to the finished card!  The 'waves' were hand cut from vellum and white card stock.  I used Copics on the backside of the vellum to color in the waves.  I also curved the 'Wish you were' part of the sentiment to go with the curve of my 'sun'.




Next up on the Blog Swim is Bibi!  Remember to comment along the way for your chance to WIN!

Washi Tape Hello

Hi all!  Yay, we're halfway to Friday!  :D  Here's a pretty simple no-stamping card using Honey Bee Stamps Zen Bouquet Washi Tape and their Hello die.  I also used two of the A2 Double Stitched Frames Dies to cut out the smooth white card stock and the washi tape background layer.  The 'hello' was cut out then I layered the white card stock over it with foam adhesive to cover it up ;)
