Honey Bee Stamps April Release Blog Hop

After all those fabulous sneak peeks we now have a Blog Hop so you can get all the inspiration you could possibly need from the Honey Bee Stamps Design Team.  


I saved my favorite projects for the Blog Hop because I made a video for you!

Today's New product is: 
Spring Bouquets Honey Cuts (dies)


 I chose a color theme and then cut a million (it seemed like it!) pieces from the die set. I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do so I cut waaaay more than needed.  Plenty for future projects for sure!  
I started stacking and layering and creating flowers.  For my first card I decided to use the basket to put the flowers in.  I ink blended the background in Gathered Twigs and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide inks and I lightly flicked some water on it.  
I stamped the 
sentiment from Farm Fresh Florals and then added the basket on Foam Squares.


Spring Bouquets is a stand alone die set of 32 pieces - florals and leaves, a basket and a watering can. 
Approximate Dimensions: Watering Can: 3" tall x 2 3/4" wide.  Basket: 3" wide x 3 1/8" tall. 
Flowers Range from: 1" to 1 1/2" wide x 5/8" to 1 1/2" tall.

I added little dots with a marker to the centers to add a bit more dimension.




The second card uses the flowers in the watering can.  
I die cut the watering can in a gray cardstock and lightly shaded it with Copic Markers.
The background is ink blended with Distress Oxide inks in Gathered TwigsScattered Straw and Abandoned Coral and I lightly flicked some water on it.  
The sentiment from the Friend stamp set.
