Honey Bee Stamps Hello Summer Sneak Peek Day 4


Welcome to Honey Bee Stamps Sneak Peek Day 4.  
Today I'm showing you the Wish You Were Here Sentiment stamp set and dies and the Beach Scene Coverplate Die.


I've inserted the photo of the Beach Scene Coverplate Die here so I can explain to you what it is and how I used it.
As you can see it is a scene, I added strips of cardstock to the back of it to cut each level in the colors I wanted.  
You could do all one color or white for coloring or ink blending, many, many ways to use this one! 

I didn't exactly make a card using the entire scene as intended, instead I hand cut and die cut pieces of it, which is why I wanted to explain how it is supposed to be used first.
The first card is a beach bag cut from the Coverplate.  I hand cut this one, added ribbon handles and stuffed it with the adorable flip flops.  The sunglasses are hand drawn and cut.  
The sentiment on the beach bag is from the Flipping Fabulous set I showed on Thursday.


Slightly curve the beach bag with a bone folder and put foam tape down the center only and it will hold the shape.


A close up of those adorable flip flops because I love them so much!


This is a repeat of the card I showed you Thursday but wanted to point out I used some of the Coverplate die for the background.  You don't have to use it all.


My final card for today is a set of flip flops die cut from the Coverplate die.  Pretty fun, huh?  You can do a lot with this one die and if you have followed me for any length of time, you know I only buy things I can use over and over again in may different ways.


The sentiments in today's  last two cards are from the new Wish You Were Here Sentiment Stamp Set and Dies.

Honey Bee Stamps Hello Summer Sneak Peek Day 3

Welcome to Honey Bee Stamps Sneak Peek Day 3.
Today I'm showing Tropical Bouquet Builder Dies, Lovely Layers Monstera leaf Dies and the new Oval Thin Frames Dies.


The Tropical Bouquet Builder Dies are a die set only and you can create all kinds of Hawaiian and tropical looks with these pieces. For this first card I chose to simply put the flowers and some greenery in one of the vases.  I made a floral pick sign to hold the Aloha sentiment and stuck it behind the flowers.
I cut two vases, one in blue cardstock and one in Vellum cardstock and layered them together.

This graphic shows you what each of the dies make.  I love having a handy guide!


I'm new to the whole Monstera Leaf thing, so when I went to Pinterest to check them out I got a lesson - they are everywhere!  A huge home decor trend this season.  Can you tell I live in Idaho, LOL!

This stand alone die set is a pretty big leaf.  I have two of them on this card, so you can see the size from there.  I paired them with some of the Tropical Bouquet Builder Dies pieces cut in different greens and vellum. 

My last card uses the Tropical Bouquet Builder Dies as well.  This time I put them on one of the new Oval Thin Frames.  If you want o click back over to yesterdays post, you will see I used two layers of the new Oval Thin Frames on the seashell card.

Honey Bee Stamps new Thin Frames line is really quite cool because sometimes you don't want an actual frame but more of an embellishment accent. They can stand out or blend in and you get just about every card size imaginable in these sets.

All the sentiments on these cards are from the Sip Sip Hooray Sentiment Stamp Set and Dies.

Honey Bee Stamps Hello Summer Sneak Peek Day 2

Welcome to Honey Bee Stamps Sneak Peek Day 2.
Today I'm showing off Flipping Fabulous and the Flip Flop Stand Alone Dies.


I used the Flip Flop Stand Alone dies (dies that do not have a coordinating stamp set) to create these cute little sandals.  The three piece die cuts the foot bed, the toe strap (in my day it was called a thong *Ü*)  and the bows for the decoration, so you can mix and match your colors and textures.




Flipping Fabulous Stamp Set and Dies


I used the Flipping Fabulous stamp set and dies to create a card with the sea shells instead of the flip flops.  I did an ink blended background and colored the shells lightly with Copic markers.



The Release Live Party is on 7/5 on Instagram and Facebook Live at 6 PST. Then all products will be for sale.

See you tomorrow for Sneak Peek Day 3!

Honey Bee Stamps Hello Summer Sneak Peek Day 1

Welcome to the Honey Bee Stamps Sneak Peek Day 1.  
This Hello Summer Release has serious summer vibes and I'm starting with Raise a Glass and Sip Sip Hooray!


As I always do, I stamp out a lot of the images and cut them out. Then the design process starts and it is usually driven by the sentiment.  In this case, it is Happy Hour Indeed...so I lined up the drinks!  I love the colors of these.  I stamped the centers with Distress Oxide inks and it left kind of an icy or slushy look to some of them.  Perfect for summer drinks!

For this card, I did a bit of ink blending on the background and then used the sentiments all around the glasses.  Something different for a change!
