Hi there! I am so, so, SO excited to introduce my latest stamp sets for the Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Afternoon release! I have three sets coming out with this release: Darling Dahlias, Sweet Sunflowers, and Harvest Blooms! If I’m being honest, when I started stamping ten years ago, I never in a million years would have thought that I’d design stamps. I am incredibly proud of these designs, so I hope you love them as much as I do! I have three projects to share with you today, so let’s get started.
My first two projects utilize the new Darling Dahlias, Sweet Sunflowers, and Farmhouse Check stamp sets. When using a large 6×6 background stamp, I like to make use of the entire piece by creating two projects. For the Darling Dahlias project, I began by stamping the Farmhouse Check on a panel of white cardstock using black ink. I trimmed it down to an A2 card front, then layered some green and black cardstock at an angle across the center of the card front.
Next, I stamped the Darling Dahlias images on some more white cardstock using Copic-friendly black ink. I colored them using Copic markers, then die cut them using the coordinating Honey Cuts. I added a greeting using some white embossing powder and a glittering “hello” die cut. I added a few Unicorn gems for some more sparkle!
My next project utilizes the leftover Farmhouse Check stamped panel and the Sweet Sunflowers stamp set. I stamped several images from the Sweet Sunflowers in some more Copic-friendly black ink, then colored the images using some pastel yellow Copic markers and emerald green for the foliage. I die cut them using the coordinating Honey Cuts.
I added a black panel to the checked panel, then layered the die cut sunflowers in a pretty swag using foam adhesive. I heat embossed a greeting from Sweet Sunflowers on black cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating Honey Cuts. I added some more gems for some sparkle!
For my last project, I have a super graphic project using my new Harvest Blooms stamp set. This stamp set is super detailed, so I wanted to focus on that by leaving the background black and white and adding some very pale pastel to the background. I stamped Harvest Blooms using Copic-friendly black ink, then colored the background with some mint Copic marker to highlight the detail of the flowers.
Next, I die cut a hexagon frame using the Hexagon Thin Frames dies from some emerald green cardstock. I trimmed the patterned panel down slightly and matted it with a piece of A2 black cardstock.
Finally, I added a greeting from the Slimline Sentiments: Blanket Honey Cuts. I die cut the Best Wishes from black cardstock three times, then adhered them together to create a dimensional die cut sentiment. Super simple and graphic with that clean color scheme!
Well, that’s all for these projects. I have several more projects to share with you over the next few days, so be sure to check back! The new Autumn Afternoon release is now live, and there are SO MANY cute products. I hope you go take a look!! Thanks so much for stopping by, and happy shopping!
