Honey Bee Stamps Let’s Celebrate – Sneak Peek Day 4

Honey Bee Stamps Let’s Celebrate – Sneak Peek Day 4 published on 2 Comments on Honey Bee Stamps Let’s Celebrate – Sneak Peek Day 4

Welcome to the Let’s Celebrate Sneak Peeks from Honey Bee Stamps. And truly, it is something to celebrate! The release will go live TONIGHT after the release party on IG and FB that starts at 8p Central. Come join us for the release party and then join the celebration!

For today, we have more amazing product to share! I am showing you the Just BEEcause Stamp Set and coordinating Honey Cuts, and the Honey Comb Stamps and Honey Cuts Dies. And introducing the new Intense Black Ink Pad, a copic friendly ink. (Release links will be live on May 3rd after the release party)

Let’s face it, when your company is names Honey Bee Stamps, you make the cutest bees and honey possible! I was just insanely excited to get this Just BEEcause stamp set and coordinating Honey Cuts. There are SOOOO many elements and ways to use the set. Details galore! I stamped the images in the new Intense Black Ink. Then I colored the images with Copic Markers.

Once I had all the elements colored, I started playing with my layout. I used the new Honey Comb Dies to create the layering honeycombs. These are super cool dies because they both cut out the coordinating stamp images or can combine to cut this little trio of honeycombs. I added a sentiment from the Just BEEcause set directly to the base and then added all the elements.

Finally, I added a touch of sparkle with some Wink of Stella on the bees wings. I had such fun playing with the possibilities of this set and I’m quite certain you’ll be seeing more of it from me.

Thanks for joining me for these sneak peeks. I hope you will join in on the IG or FB party. I would be grateful if you would consider shopping with me via my links in this post. See you soon!

Honey Bee Stamps Let’s Celebrate Release – Sneak Peeks Day 1

Honey Bee Stamps Let’s Celebrate Release – Sneak Peeks Day 1 published on 1 Comment on Honey Bee Stamps Let’s Celebrate Release – Sneak Peeks Day 1

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 chose to share a few of my very favorite things from this release today AND something that I’m crazy excited about. My card uses the Fancy Frosting Stamp Set and coordinating Honey Cuts Die, the Inside: Snarky Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set, and the Team Tie Dye Paper Pad (Release links will be live on May 3rd after the release party)

I thought that a celebration card was the way to start so I pulled some balloon images from the Fancy Frosting Stamp Set and stamped them onto watercolor paper. This stamp set has everything you need for birthday cards, cake, balloons, frosting words, cake, oh and cake! But the balloons were perfect for me! Especially that striped one!

I loved the idea of using the same stripe colors as the patterned paper I chose! Out came my Daniel Smith watercolors and I got to coloring. But here is the deal…I actually knew exactly what colors to use because I’m the one who created this pattern! (Colors listed at the end of the post)

The Team Tie Dye is just that! The team sent designs into Melissa and she chose a beautiful array to turn into a paper pack. Side by side I have the original that I colored and sent in and then the pack version. The gorgeous art in this pack just blows me away and knowing that each was hand created makes it incredibly special!

The sentiment on the card front comes from the Fancy Frosting set but the inside comes from a new and fun set intended to be a bit sassy. We all have those folks on our mailing list that appreciate the humor and you are going to love having this choice (and there is another inside set that is a bit more traditional too).

Thanks so much for stopping in today. I hope you enjoy this peek! Let me know what you think about my card and my paper design.

Daniel Smith Watercolors: Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Orange Hue, New Gamboge, Hooker’s Green, Phthalo Blue (Green Shade), Indanthrone Blue, Quinacridone Purple

SugarPea Designs Spring Release Day

SugarPea Designs Spring Release Day published on 15 Comments on SugarPea Designs Spring Release Day

I am so happy to be here all week for the SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week!! This spring release is full of fun products that are perfect for every stamper. And we have team hop, of course, to share inspiration. The release goes live TODAY at 2p Eastern.

Before going live, we have more products to share: Botanical Branches SugarCut Dies, Enjoy Word SugarCut Die, and Skinny Stripes Stencil (**NOTE: Links will not be live until the release is available today at 2p Eastern **)

The three products today are beautiful alone and spectacular together. The hardest decision I made was which colors to use! I used my yard as a muse since it is all the shades of spring green. I sprayed the Skinny Stripes stencil with Pixie Spray to help it stay in place and then placed it on Bristol Smooth paper. I inked with Distress Oxide inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness. While I had the brushes out, I inked up some plain Bristol Smooth in the same colors for die cutting.

I chose one of the leaves from Botanical Branches and cut two of them. Then I cut the Enjoy Word out of the darkest section (with Rustic Wilderness) to help it pop against the background. In a tried and true technique, I cut the shadow from vellum then glued the inked word to it. It separates the word from the background but doesn’t draw you away. I glued everything down and added a few sequins. I want to try this is all the colors of the rainbow!!

SugarPea Designs Spring Release Sneak Peek – Day 4

SugarPea Designs Spring Release Sneak Peek – Day 4 published on 20 Comments on SugarPea Designs Spring Release Sneak Peek – Day 4

I am so happy to be here all week for the SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week!! This spring release is full of fun products that are perfect for every stamper. And we have team hop, of course, to share inspiration. The release goes live on Friday, April 30th at 2p Eastern.

Today we are sharing four new products: Hey Spring Stamp Set and coordinating SugarCut Dies, Spring Scene Builder Cover Plate Die, and the Picket Fence SugarCut Die (**NOTE: Links will not be live until the release is available on Friday, April 30th**)

I decided to work with the Spring Scene Builder Cover Plate and mostly use it stand alone. Without a doubt it works with so many images and in so many ways but just by itself, it is awesome. I cut all the elements at once out of Bristol Smooth paper and then used Distress Ink for watercoloring. It takes almost no time to color and feels so complete.

Once dry, I put a vellum layer under the base die layer and then built the scene on top of it. Aren’t the little flowers adorable?! I chose a sentiment from Tuesday’s Birthday Wishes Stamp set. I like that this can be a birthday card but also just a happy mail card. While the glue set, I ink a base layer with Distress Oxide Ink and then attached the vellum layer to the top of it. Originally I had planned on making this a shaker card (and you totally could!) but it seemed to take away from the little details so I just opted out of that idea. I hope you enjoy this look!

SugarPea Designs Spring Release Sneak Peek – Day 3

SugarPea Designs Spring Release Sneak Peek – Day 3 published on 22 Comments on SugarPea Designs Spring Release Sneak Peek – Day 3

I am so happy to be here all week for the SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week!! This spring release is full of fun products that are perfect for every stamper. And we have team hop, of course, to share inspiration. The release goes live on Friday, April 30th at 2p Eastern. I even added on a little Freshly Made Sketches for today’s card (with, I will grant you, a pretty loose interpretation of Narelle’s sketch).

Today we are sharing three new products: Take Us To Your Cake Stamp Set and coordinating SugarCut Dies, Outer Space Scene Builder Stencil and In The Spotlight Stencil (**NOTE: Links will not be live until the release is available on Friday, April 30th**)

So there is no doubt that this is just a great set of coordinating products! Just look at how they work together! I started with the Outer Space Scene Builder Stencil and created the moon with Distress Ink. I put on light gray and then layered on the craters and inked some more. Next I added the light beam with the In the Spotlight Stencil. Now is where the real appreciation of details in these stencils comes. I placed the negatives of the stencils over the inked areas and added the background sky (all of this was created with Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks). With the negatives still in place, I started created the “stars”. First I splattered on some white watercolor paint. Nope, not enough. So next, I added spritzes of Perfect Pearls (in a sprayer mixed with water). Still not enough so I pulled out some discontinued Smooch Pearlized Ink from my stash and threw a little of that on too. Kind of messy, definitely fun!

Once I got that done, I moved on to the Take Us To Your Cake set. It is just darling and I love all the little aliens! I colored a few of them along with the space ship using Copic Markers. I stamped the beam image over the stenciling and then added the rest of the elements. The sentiment from the set worked perfectly with the Sentiment Strips SugarCut Dies.

SugarPea Designs Spring Release Sneak Peek – Day 2

SugarPea Designs Spring Release Sneak Peek – Day 2 published on 22 Comments on SugarPea Designs Spring Release Sneak Peek – Day 2

I am so happy to be here all week for the SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week!! This spring release is full of fun products that are perfect for every stamper. And we have team hop, of course, to share inspiration. The release goes live on Friday, April 30th at 2p Eastern.

Today we are sharing three more new products: Birthday Wishes Stamp Set, Birthday Candles SugarCut Dies and Happy Birthday Script SugarCut Die (**NOTE: Links will not be live until the release is available on Friday, April 30th**)

The Birthday Wishes set is one that made me clap my hands for joy when I first saw it. I am a self-confessed sentiment hoarder and this will go into heavy rotation. Combined with the cute candles, it is perfect for any one on your list. I inked the candles up in a variety of colors and cut with the Birthday Candles SugarCut Dies.

I chose a striped patterned paper, split the top panel and added the candles. This sentiment is my favorite, maybe of all time. Seriously! My 17yo son took one look at this card and claimed it for his birthday. Yes, he does it every year…no surprises for him! But let’s face it, is there a better choice for my high school senior?

SugarPea Designs Spring Release Sneak Peek – Day 1

SugarPea Designs Spring Release Sneak Peek – Day 1 published on 25 Comments on SugarPea Designs Spring Release Sneak Peek – Day 1

I am so happy to be here all week for the SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week!! This spring release is full of fun products that are perfect for every stamper. And we have team hop, of course, to share inspiration. The release goes live on Friday, April 30th at 2p Eastern.

Today we are sharing three new products: Color of Life Stamp Set, Paint Palette SugarCut Dies, and Splash of Color Stamp Set. (**NOTE: Links will not be live until the release is available on Friday, April 30th**)

I knew immediately that the Splash of Color Stamp set was going to be the first thing I used and the card came out exactly as it was in my head! Now, I’ll admit that doesn’t usually happen and it is so great when it does. I love the bright splatters in a rainbow of colors! I just chose a pretty variety and then played with the placement of the splatter images.

I chose this beautiful sentiment from the Color of Life Stamp and I thought it went perfectly with this design. I stamped in Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. It is hard to capture in the photo but that extra bit of shine helps it pop even more. I added a few shiny black sequins to match and there you have it…a one layer card!

Freshly Made Sketches #481

Freshly Made Sketches #481 published on 6 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #481

I have another great Freshly Made Sketches challenge to share with you today. Our lovely Cécile is the sketch designer this week and I think you’ll agree that this one is simply wonderful!

As soon as I saw the sketch, I thought flowers and these little gems from The Greetery’s Hoop Wreath worked perfectly. I inked them with Altenew inks in Pink Diamond and Rubellite and added a sentiment from the same stamp set. I inked the base of the card with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink for a bit more pop.

I hope you will have some crafty time this week and come on over to join us! Thanks so much for stopping in today.

Sweet Sunflowers for Honey Bee Stamps

Sweet Sunflowers for Honey Bee Stamps published on No Comments on Sweet Sunflowers for Honey Bee Stamps

I’m up on Social Media for Honey Bee Stamps today and wanted to share here too. You will see that I’m kind of of a spring themed roll and just kept with it.

I have loved the idea of uncolored images on a bold background for awhile and thought it was time to give it a try. I inked the Sweet Sunflowers images and then just cut them out with the coordinating dies. I used the Basketweave Stencil to create this ombré background to provide a pop of color and texture. The sentiment is from the Spring Joy Bouquet set and I simply love this one!

Short and sweet today! Hope you have a beautiful day!

Love You S’more for Honey Bee Stamps

Love You S’more for Honey Bee Stamps published on 5 Comments on Love You S’more for Honey Bee Stamps

As promised, a new card for the Honey Bee Stamps Social Media Team. And conveniently, it is time for the 2021 Spring Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. The perfect match!

I chose the Love You S’more stamp set since it has this adorable coffee image and I do love the sentiment from the same set. I used the stripes from the Birthday Bash papers and added a bit of texture with the Quilted A2 Cover Plate (that I just cut down a bit).

I hope you like this fun card! Today is the last day of the Coffee Lovers Hop and make sure you go over to see all the inspiration there! And for all who have been patient with me being gone over the last weeks, here is a photo of my final sign off flight to be a Captain on the Airbus!
