Honey Bee Stamps & Ellen Hutson UWF Campaign: Sending Sunshine

Hi Friends!!
I am so excited to be participating in the blog hop to celebrate the Sending Sunshine set!

For today's projects, the first card I created was a sending sunshine bright and happy card. I am a native Houstonian and this set couldn't come at a better time! My beloved city, well a lot of our state is a disaster area. My heart breaks for my fellow Texans & this was a bright spot in a very dismal time. Please read below for information on what Honey Bee Stamps is doing to support Texas!!!! Affiliate links are provided below, a portion of the proceeds will be donated back to my community for the Disaster Recovery.
For this card I used the Honey Bee Stamps layering Sunburst stencil and some Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste to create the fun shimmery sunburst! I tinted it yellow by using a little Distress Ink Refill dropper in fossilized Amber.
The Stitched Cloud Border Honey Cuts are so perfect to layer. I chose to split them up for a totally different look, but they are stitched inside & out so that you can layer them. You will notice a tint on the edges, I used Distress Oxide Ink to lightly ink the edges in peacock feathers. It added a slight touch of blue to brighten up the borders of the clouds. 
I used the coordinating dies to cut the Sending Sunshine Sentiment out of yellow cardstock. I then added Nuvo Crystal Glaze on top of the sentiment to give it additional dimension and shine. What a fun set!

For my second card I used another set released by Honey Bee Stamps. This card I used the A2 Sunburst Coverplate die and the Ray of Sunshine stamp set. 

I used all Distress Oxide Inks to shade the sun. (Candied Apple & Fossilized Amber) I love the look of light to dark for the sun.

Next, I cut the word sunshine from the coordinating Ray of Sunshine Honey Cuts die set and added a layer of Nuvo Crystal Glaze to it for additional dimension. Don't you love the shadow for this die??!!


Also, I want to mention that Honey Bee Stamps is Sending Sunshine to Texas.

Melissa, the Honey Bee Stamps owner made this gorgeous card in support of this campaign.  For the State of Texas and helping with the recovery, she is donating a portion of the sales to the JJ Watt Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. This fund gives 100% of all donations back to those in need.

A Honey Bee Hello!



Today I am sharing a fun card that I created using Honey Bee Stamps products. 
*In order to support my blog, Affiliate links are used where available at NO cost to you. Thank you for your support!*

First off, I cut the Stacking Hexagon Cover plates dies and cut them using Bazzill Basics cardstock.  
Once I had them all cut, I layered each one using the Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive because it gives you a minute to get it situated and dries clear! I used Scor-Tape on one of the bee images. I just love how strong it is!


 Next up I stamped and cut out the Busy Bee stamp set & coordinating dies and the Hello set and coordinating Honey Cut dies.  

I embossed the word Hello using the Hero Arts Heat Tool and some Nuvo Crystal Clear Embossing Powder and Avery Elle Mimosa Pigment Ink
 I colored the bee images in with my Copic Blending Trio Markers on some Neenah Classic Crest Smooth 110 lb cardstock. 

I also put the Hampton Arts Mini Action Wobblers behind the two Busy Bee stamps  just to make the card that much more fun!
I hope you enjoyed my project today.  Thanks for looking and have a fantastic day!!

For my first project I created a fun coffee shaker card using the Blah Bunny stamp set and Blah Bunny Honey Cut Dies. For the sentiments, I used Blah Blah Blah & Prickly Sentiments. I used the Petal Peach Sequins  & Clear Iridescent Mix packets to fill my shaker.


To create the frames for the shaker card, I used the rectangle double stitched  Honey Cut Dies. I also used 3M foam tape, Stick ItScore tape to make sure the cardbase & frames stayed in place well.
I used the Altenew grey mini ink cubes to make a background for the inside of the shaker box. Once I blended the ink in with the Nuvo blender brush, I spritzed water using the Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer to create some texture on the Neenah cardstock.

For my second card  I used the coffee cups from the Blah Bunny stamp set and Blah Bunny Honey Cut Dies.. I colored them in with my copic markers and then stamped the steam, hearts and dots to enhance the images.
Once I finished those images, I used the rectangle double stitched  Honey Cut Dies to create a frame.

I then took the hugs Honey Cut die and added glossy accents to make the word a little dimensional and shiny. I added a piece of patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6X6 paper pack. To finish the card off, I added in a Starbucks' gift card. This is the perfect pick me up to send to a friend!
