Welcome to the Let’s Celebrate Sneak Peeks from Honey Bee Stamps. And truly, it is something to celebrate! The release will go live on Monday, May 3rd after the release party on IG and FB that starts at 8p Central.
I am focusing today on a new stamp and die combination that will become a go-to in any stamp room: Bitty Buzzwords Stamp Set and Bitty Buzzwords Honey Cuts Dies (Release links will be live on May 3rd after the release party)
This set has all the potential to be one you reach for over and over to add sentiments outside and inside your cards. But I thought I’d show it as the focal point today. I used the partial die cut method with the word outline at the edge of my white layer. This left me room to show off a beautiful background which also helps the word pop! Usually, I would have to ink and watercolor and smoosh and….. But nope! I just pulled one of the Team Tie Dye prints instead. With one sheet, I created both cards.
When running through my Gemini Jr., placing the top plate is the key to where the die stops cutting. Mine was a little off of what I wanted and cut into the stock just a little below the word. After using a paper trimmer to cut each side away, I just cut the shadow from vellum and placed it over the card stock cut. Problem solved and I like how the vellum helps further define the word. For the patterned paper, I cut the 6″x 6″ paper to 4.25″ x 6″ and then in half again. That left a side piece that I used for cutting the words to layer on top. I just placed the dies so that they coordinated with the print showing.
I used the print part of the Bitty Buzzwords Stamps for the add on to the sentiment and I love the choices. To finish the card I added some Playful Pastels Gem Stickers.
Thanks so much for stopping in today. I hope you enjoy this peek!
