Sneak Peaks Day 1 | Honey Bee Stamps

It’s time again for a brand new release from Honey Bee Stamps! We will be sharing sneak peak daily till May 3rd so make sure to stop by daily for new peaks!

For today’s card, I decided to step out of my comfort zone to use pattern paper, along with the balloon stamps from Fancy Frosting stamp set. I stamped, colored them with copics, restamped and heated embossed with silver embossing powder, and lastly die cut them using the coordinating dies.

When trying to add them to the pattern paper that I chose from the Funfetti Birthday paper pad, which was also going to be the sentiment, they were getting lost so I added a piece of vellum to allow the balloons to pop a bit more.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to head over to Instagram for more inspiration!

Happy Crafting!

Spring Bliss Release Sneak Peak Day 4 | Honey Bee Stamps

Good Morning and welcome to day 4 of Sneak Peaks for the Spring Bliss release from Honey Bee Stamps.

Today’s card uses the Playful Pastels paper pad along with the Loads of Spring stamp set (this set works with Pickup sets but I decided to use it on its own).

Copic Combo : YG 06-03-01, YR 15-Y15, N0, R32, RV34, R05-08, V17-15

I stamped and colored the floral arrangement from the set, twice. Then diecut and layered on to some pattern paper with a sentiment from the Spring Joy Bouquet stamp set. Lastly added some Gem Stickers (Playful Pastel).

Thanks for following along for all the sneak peaks! I hope that you were inspired to create something! I have a few more cards with this release to share, so be sure to come back again!

DIY pattern paper | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Hump Day! Today I’m sharing how a recreated a piece of pattern paper using some distress oxide inks! Can you tell which one is the ‘original pattern paper’ and which one I recreated?

Here’s the card I made with pattern paper from the Paper Pad 6×6 | Love Letters.

This was the ‘easier’ card, as all you have to do is stamp and heat emboss the background image onto the pattern paper. I used the Harvest Blooms Background | 6×6 Stamp Set along with some white embossing power and versamark watermark ink.

The second card took a little longer to make since I ink blended and create the background myself. I used distress oxide inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral. After blending, I splattered it with some water to add a little depth! (No idea why I didn’t do this before!). Then I stamped and embossed the Harvest Blooms Background | 6×6 Stamp Set just like the first card.

To finish the cards, I die cut the word ‘friend’ from the Slimline Sentiments: Stitched and ‘hello’ from the Darling Dahlias | Honey Cuts from black card stock 3 times, stacked and adhered it to the trimmed card front. Lastly I added some gems from the Love Letter release.

Who else loves mixing old and new sets! Let me know in the comments below!
