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!




Thanks for stopping by!

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 ;)

Hello

Hi all!  I hope you all had a great 4th of July yesterday!  I'm back with another Honey Bee Stamps card today!  The Country Blooms set is just Gorgeous!  I colored them with Copics then used the matching dies to cut them out.  I layered them around two of the Hello Honey Cuts - one in black card stock, the other in vellum.  I love adding background dies in the same card stock as my card base - just a little extra texture and interest without taking away from the main images.  Here, I used the middle Hexagon Cover Plate.

You are my Hero

Hi all!  It is time for another CAS-ual Fridays Inspiration Challenge!!!   This time we are playing a little Tic Tac Toe.  You can check it out on the blog HERE.  I went right down the middle for my card - one layer, add a tag, rainbow.  Inking up the border image from Modern Petals stamp set was a little tricky (and yes, I got some green ink on my yellow ink pad, but I think I'll live, lol!).  The sentiment is from the So Pretty stamp set.  




Be sure to play along with us for you chance to WIN!

Sending you a Smile

Hi all!  I'm so excited to be sharing my first Honey Bee Stamps card as a member of their Social Media Design Team!  I'll be posting every Wednesday so be on the look out ;)

For my card, I colored up the pretty little Lotus Blossom flower and used the matching die to cut it.  The sweet 2x2 stamp is just SO cute!  I colored it with copics.  I stamped part of the sentiment from the Smile stamp set onto smooth white card stock that I cut out with one of the A2 Double Stitched Frame dies.  I stamped 'Smile' with Versamark then embossed with silver embossing powder, then die cut it with the matching die.  A clear mini sequin dots the 'i'.  Everything is layered over my grout gray card base that was sponged with one of the Hexagon Layering Background Stencils.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Time!

Hi all!  Yay for Friday!  Time for another CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!  This time, we're inspiring you to use those patterned papers you've been hoarding ;)  Here, I used the 4 Petals Fri-Dies (that match the Wallflower stamp set) to cut out some different papers from the same pack.  I popped them up with foam adhesive within a die-cute frame.  The sentiment is from the Wallflower stamp set - it's retiring!  Grab it while you can!




We would love to have you play along with us!

The Card Concept Challenge #74

Hi all!  It's time for a new The Card Concept Challenge!  The inspiration pic is a beauty, for sure!  I embossed my stamp onto watercolor paper then colored it with my Zig pens and some water.  The 'hello' die is an older MFT die-namic (I couldn't find it on their site) that I cut out of gold foil paper and pink lemonade card stock, then layered them.  And of course, some gold sequins to add the finishing touch.




Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to play along with us :)

We're Mermaid for each other

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for the latest MFT sketch - MFTWSC333.   I feel in love with this BB Mermazing stamp set the second I saw it!  I did some no-line coloring on her using my Copics.  The background was created with two different Ranger Distress Inks and some water.
