Welcome to the Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Splendor 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.
I am so excited about today’s share! I’m including a die set introduced yesterday by the team and a new sentiment set. AND….all things mini-slimline! Today’s products are: Lovely Layers: Sunflower Honey Cut Dies, Bitty Buzzwords: Seasons Stamp and Honey Cut Dies, Sweet Stacks: Mini Slimline Dies and Mini Slimline Envelope Dies (These affiliate links will not be live until the release opens for sale on August 23rd after the Release Party on IG and FB at 9p CT.)
I’m going to be real here. Based on the reaction to the last flower (the Coneflower), I’m sure this Sunflower Honey Cut set is going to fly out the door. Fly! So be ready to get it fast. I went on a tried and true path and used the dies on the prints from the Team Tie Dye paper. Then, on the flower petals, I added some Copic Marker shading for more depth. The paper had already done most of the work so the shading was super easy but adds so much.
I added gold and black splatters on all the elements and set them aside to dry. Then I started working on my base. I used Neenah Desert Storm paper with the new Mini Slimline Sweet Stacks dies. Once cut, I brushed on Distress Ink in Antique Linen and Vintage Photo then added splatters to match the flower. Once dry, I pondered my sentiment. And then… the obvious, most awesome sentiment jumped right out. I know, I know. But I really made me happy! I stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.
Putting the card together was easy after that. I used strategic foam tape to give the flower dimension and then attached it to the base. But I wasn’t done yet. This card needed its very own special envelope! The new Mini Slimline Envelope Honey Cuts are brilliantly designed. There are a couple of styles: rounded edges or the ticket edge I used here. It is super easy to piece together too so your special card can have that last special touch! I added the same ink and splatters to the envelope that I used on the card. And now just look. When the recipient goes to pull out the card, they see the sentiment first!! Oh. My. Word. Again, I may be overly pleased with myself but this just make my creative day!
So glad you stopped in today. Back tomorrow for day four of the peeks! Have a beautiful day!
