Ant You Sweet Cards and Hexagon Box

Today I have something new - Whimsy Stamps. This stamp company has been around a while but is new to me and I'm thrilled to do a couple of guest posts for them.

I chose to play with this adorable summertime Ant You Sweet stamp set and the Hexagon Treat Box Die.

Ant You Sweet Stamp Set

My first card says Hello Sunshine, you lemonade my day.  How cute is that!  
I used the image that has the lemonade pitcher and adorable ant with the drinking straw.  I added a couple of other lemons to the card, to spread out the image a bit.  All images are colored with Copic markers and the card is lightly ink blended with Distress Oxide ink.

This is a fun sentiment - When life gives you lemons...add Vodka. 
My ant may or may not be a little drunk here.  😉
Again, I colored all images with Copic markers and added a few extra lemons.

Copic Colors I used on the projects.
Ants: R29, R27, R24. R14, R22
Lemons: Y15, Y13, Y00, C00
Glass: B0000, C00, BV0000, BG11
Ice: B0000, B00, BG11
Straws: Y38, Y17, Y13, C2, C1
Wooden Spoon: E55. E23. E31, E50

This is a super cute, attached lid, hexagon treat box that is a great size - it's about 3" in diameter and 1" tall.
I stamped, colored and cut out the images, leaving a little cardstock below each one.  I scored the cardstock, folded it back, and adhered all the pieces on the lid for a fun little scene.  The box is filled with Lemonhead candies.

These were fun projects to create - super summery!  
I have another project with this box and a set of flower dies coming on the 19th.  All my paper flower lovers better get ready!
