Framed: Anenomes for Honey Bee Stamps

Framed: Anenomes for Honey Bee Stamps published on 3 Comments on Framed: Anenomes for Honey Bee Stamps

Sharing today for Honey Bee Stamps! I needed a day just to “play” in the stamp room and I thought I should pull out this new Framed: Anenomes stamp set. It is a gorgeous image and one that can be colored with so many mediums. I chose a very loose watercolor look with Distress Ink.

I stamped the image using Versamark Ink onto Tim Holtz Heavystock paper. It is made for distress ink techniques. For each color, I simply “smooshed” the ink from a mini pad onto a small clear block then added water with a paint brush. I took the block direct to paper to apply the color. Using a small block help you keep a little more control on where the color goes but still leaves it loose. If you need a bit more color in a specific place, you can add it with a paint brush. This is a layering process so leave time to allow drying to happen in between adding colors or additional ink.

Because I love the look of pale anemones, I made the leaves and the background bold and kept the flowers in muted tones of Tattered Rose and Antique Linen. For the sentiment, I stamped and heat embossed it onto more of the Heavystock paper. Then I colored it with the Chipped Sapphire in the same way as I did the flower except I made sure there was a bit more solid coverage as a base.

I hope you enjoy this card! Let me know if this makes sense or if you would rather see a video on how to create this look. Thanks so much for dropping in today!

Floral Hello for SugarPea Designs

Today I’m up on the SugarPea Designs company blog. I was looking through my underused products and thought I would re-visit the Floral Geo CoverPlate Die today. It is such a gorgeous design and I love that it has a great “stand alone” quality.

I cut the cover from a pretty teal card stock and then used the same color underneath. In order to make the texture stand out, I added a bit of ink to the base. It keeps the tone on tone look but with a bit more pop. And let’s face it, that die does ALL the work!

I pulled out the SugarCut – Hello die, another that I love but that has not gotten enough attention. This script really is just lovely! I used it with some iridescent glitter paper from my stash. In person, the sparkle is really pretty! To keep it clean, I just added on a few gems.

I hope you enjoy this card and will take it as inspiration to pull out of a few of your favorites too! Have a great day.

SugarPea Designs Summer Release Day published on 21 Comments on SugarPea Designs Summer Release Day

I am so happy to be here all week for the SugarPea Designs Summer Release Sweet Peek Week!! Finally it is Release Day! The release goes live on today July 2nd at 2p Eastern.

I am sharing one more project today and I hope you like my version of sunshine!

Using the Sunburst Stencil, I inked up a rainbow of Distress Ink colors. I love how easy it is to create this bold look! The off center design of the sunburst really inspired the rest of the card.

The Sunshine Sentiments and SugarCut – Sunshine Word die created the perfect combination. This message was exactly perfect for my rainbow of colors and one that I hope will inspire you.

I am so happy to be here all week for the SugarPea Designs Summer Release Sweet Peek Week!! This summer 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, July 2nd at 2p Eastern.

Today we are sharing the final three new products: Waves of Love Stamp Set, SugarCut – Waves of Love and SugarCut – Nautical Notions.

This walrus from the Waves of Love sweet cannot help but bring a smile. I used the Nautical Notions life preserver to make a frame. I cut the basic shape and then used the little panel die on a wood patterned paper. I envisioned our walrus friend peeking up from the waves (also a die from Nautical Notions).

I loved the idea of this fellow trying to see what was up with the fish bucket. Of course he ignores the one right by him! There are lots of sentiments that go along with the nautical theme and you are sure to find them all just fabulous.

Today we are sharing three new products: Salty Seagulls Stamp Set, SugarCut – Salty Seagulls and the Sunburst Stencil.

I must say that I laughed so hard when I saw this set. I mean, the seagulls are genius! And the sentiments are hilarious. Using this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge by the lovely Cécile. I stamped the birds, the post and the fries and then colored with Copic Markers.

I chose an ombré piece of patterned paper for my background. I thought the soft blue gray was perfect for the sketch. Around my house I often tell the boys they are “salty dogs” when the teenage attitude shows up. In truth, they are such good boys so I think this will end up as a just because card for one of them.

SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week – Day 2

SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week – Day 2 published on 26 Comments on SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week – Day 2

I am so happy to be here all week for the SugarPea Designs Summer Release Sweet Peek Week!! This summer 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, July 2nd at 2p Eastern.

Today we are sharing three new products: SugarCut – Life is a Picnic, Sunshine Sentiments Stamp Set, SugarCut – Sunshine Word.

The starting point for me was this absolutely incredible Life is a Picnic die set. It is so well designed. I love die sets that make it easy to create layers and are not overly complicated. This is just that! Because the dies cut the separate layers, it is easy to color them in different inks and create dimension and detail. I cut the whole set out of Tim Holtz Distress White Heavystock paper. It is great for coloring with Distress Inks. Then I got to getting inky.

You can see how I was able to color the layers with different inks to create real looking items for the basket. Once I had all the pieces colored, I glued them together and thought about a “scene”. Using the Outdoor Scene Stencil for the grass and sky. You even get a little peek into a product that will be revealed tomorrow. For my sentiment, I used the new Sunshine word die and coordinating sentiment set. I hope you like my little summer scene and can’t wait to see what you think about the new products.

SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week – Day 1

SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week – Day 1 published on 23 Comments on SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week – Day 1

I am so happy to be here all week for the SugarPea Designs Summer Release 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, July 2nd at 2p Eastern.

Today we are sharing four new products: Captain Of My Heart Stamp Set, SugarCut – Captain Of My Heart, Pirate Treasure Map Stencil, and SugarCut – Ahoy.

I started with the Pirate Treasure Map Stencil. On white paper, I brushed on Antique Linen Distress Ink. Then using the stencil, I added details using more Distress Ink colors. I intentionally made a few of them messy and added some water splatters. Then I cut the map out and roughed up the edges a bit. Next up, I stamped images from the Captain Of My Heart set in Momento Tuxedo Black ink.

I had so much fun coloring them with Copic Markers and then cut them out with their coordinating dies. I inked up the base with a bit more Distress Ink and stamped on a sweet sentiment from the set. Love how well this combination works together.

Freshly Made Sketches #491

Freshly Made Sketches #491 published on 6 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #491

We have a fabulous new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches from the lovely Kim Singdahlsen. I love the bold panels and all the opportunities to create!

I started with this gorgeous print from the Team Tie Dye Paper Pack by Honey Bee Stamps. The coloring fit the sketch perfectly! While I could have just added a sentiment, I thought it might be nice to add a little more interest. So I pulled out the pretty new Wildflowers Stamp Set and added some of the stems and leaves, and of course bees! The My Favorite Flower Stamp Set had the perfect sentiment. I added a few Funfetti Gems to finish this pretty one layer card.

Thanks for stopping in today! I hope you enjoy this inspiration and will hop over to join the FMS team this week. See you soon!

Honey Bee Stamps Summer Stems Release – Sneak Peeks Day 4

Honey Bee Stamps Summer Stems Release – Sneak Peeks Day 4 published on No Comments on Honey Bee Stamps Summer Stems Release – Sneak Peeks Day 4

Welcome to the Honey Bee Stamps Summer Stems Release Sneak Peeks! Today is day four of our peeks at the new release and tonight the release goes live!

For our last day, I have a combination of products meant to be used together plus some great add-ons: the Bicycle Builder Honey Cuts Dies, the Riding By Stamp Set and Riding By Honey Cuts Dies, the Summer Stems Paper Pack and Summer Stems Gem Stickers, and the Honey Bee Reverse Tweezers (These affiliate links will not be live until the release opens for sale tonight after the Release Party on IG and FB at 8p CT.)

The Bicycle Builder Honey Cuts were the starting place for me. I cut white card stock and did some Copic Marker coloring to create a bit of interest and shading. This is super fun to do but you could use color card stock or distress ink too. I stamped the little packages from Riding By and colored them to add into the basket and chose this sweet sentiment with its coordinating die.

The script print and the ombré pink are both papers from the Summer Stems Paper Pack and I added the road by using the Horizon Slimline Borders Honey Cuts. I added a few of the gems from the Summer Stems pack because, well, who doesn’t love bling?!

So glad you stopped in today. I hope you will join us for the Release Party tonight and then the shopping links open! Thanks so much for joining me all week. See you tomorrow for the latest from Freshly Made Sketches.

Honey Bee Stamps Summer Stems Release – Sneak Peeks Day 3

Honey Bee Stamps Summer Stems Release – Sneak Peeks Day 3 published on No Comments on Honey Bee Stamps Summer Stems Release – Sneak Peeks Day 3

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.
