Hi there! Today, I am hopping along with some super talented ladies celebrating the Honey Bee Stamps Bee Mine release! You should have arrived here from Antonia, and your next stop is Brenda! I have four cards to share with you today using products that were released yesterday, so let’s get started with the details!
My first project combined the darling Up, Up, and Away and the Mountain Z-fold Card Dies. I began by stamping the large balloon from Up, Up, and Away using Fadeout Ink onto some watercolor paper, then used Prima watercolors to add some color to the balloon and the heart garland. I also watercolored a sky background onto a panel of A2 watercolor paper.
Next, I die cut the cloud portion of the background from the Mountain Z-fold Card Dies using some heavyweight vellum. I added the trees (cut from turquoise cardstock) to the bottom, as well as a glittery cloud cut from the new Large Clouds dies. I added a greeting from the new Blown Away stamp set. I adhered the finished vellum card front to the sky backdrop using some super strong adhesive, creating a super unique card with lots of fun details!
For my second card, I watercolored another balloon from the Up, Up, and Away set, as well as a few clouds, and die cut them using the coordinating Honey Cuts. I also die cut some vellum clouds using the Large Clouds dies. I did some light ink blending on an A2 aqua panel to add a bit more dimension to the background.
For the greeting, I heat embossed this sentiment from the Blown Away stamp set using The Bee’s Knees Embossing Powder Trio. I added the die cuts to the blended card front using dimensional foam adhesive. The final touch was to add a few gems for some more sparkle!
For my next project, I used the fabulous new Fluttering Hearts Cover Plate dies to create a sparkly and shiny background! I die cut the pierced cover plate from some hot pink foil and die cut the heart cut plate from some super sparkly white glitter cardstock.
Next, I used the new Kisses Stamps and Honey Cuts to add the greeting. I white embossed the greeting on some strips of navy blue cardstock, and die cut the greeting from some vellum and more navy blue cardstock. I popped the greeting up using some foam adhesive for lots of dimension.
For my last project today, I used the new Pierced XOXO heart dies to create a shaker card. I die cut the heart from an A2 panel of navy blue cardstock, then backed it with acetate. I also used the new Fluttering Hearts Stencil to add some white hearts to a pink background with blending brushes and some white pigment ink.
