Welcome to the Honey Bee Stamps Summer Stems Release Sneak Peeks! Today is day three of our peeks at the new release and, as usual, you will be totally wow’d by all the amazing sets.
For today I have nothing but cuteness for you. I am sharing the new Smitten Kittens Stamp Set and Smitten Kitten Honey Cuts. (These affiliate links will not be live until the release opens for sale on June 15th after the Release Party on IG and FB at 8p CT.)
I do love a cute cat stamp set and this one is one of the sweetest I have seen in a while. Love all the kitty choices and markings! I will admit that all the fun little accessory choices really sealed the deal for me. I used my two ‘muses’ to create this card. Kate is my calico and she, truthfully, is NOT a fan of her sister. I added a couple of extra stripes on her tail with my Copic safe marker to better match her but this was actually a pretty good version of her. My kitty Meg is a gray tuxedo so again, this little one was easy to turn make match. I added a tiny stripe on the tail to match the one on Meg’s.
To create my scene, I first started out with a little bit of masking and put Meg in a comfy bed. Totally accurate in my house! She would also have all of the toys hoarded around her so I chose a few for that (toy mice are her absolute favorite). In real life, Kate would be looking at her sister in disgust but we are working in happy pretend cat world so I put the smiling Kate by Meg. I added run (with masking) to ground the scene just a little more. The sentiment was added as a joke (my boys helped me choose it) given the kitties’ relationship, but I sure makes for a nice card to send. It is from the Sweet Sunflowers Stamp Set. Finally, I chose this great olive gingham paper from the new Summer Stems Paper Pack. Another absolute winner with so many pretty designs.
So glad you stopped in today. Don’t forget that tomorrow is release day but we have some more to show you in the morning first followed by the evening release party.
