Today I'm recapping several of my cards from the Sneak Peek days this week. First up is this adorable get well card featuring the new Mason Jar Card die. I "caught" the lady bug, from the Little Ladies die set, in the jar. I used some heat embossable acetate for the sentiment from the Love Bug set and then overlaid it onto the card. (Yes, she has a sad face because of you being sick:)
In this photo you can see the acetate overlay.
Next up is a card I created using the pretty Birds & the Bees Stamps and Honey Cuts along with the new Scallop A7 Frames dies. I watercolored these images with Distress Oxide inks. The sentiment is from the new Hi Honey stamp set. (Did you know you can get the Distress Oxide inks in Honey Bee's shop?)
For this card I used the Stacking Pennant dies and cut them from several different colors of card stock. For the sentiment, I used the previously released Happy Honeycuts and the birthday word is from Sending You Sentiments.
I used three new sets on this card: Bee Bold Alpha Dies, Chin Up Buttercup stamps, and two of the stamps from the Bitty Patterns stamps. I LOVE the gingham and dots stamps! Of course, the other two in this set are awesome too!
I had so much fun using the Stacking Hearts Dies to create masks for this card! Isn't the font of this sentiment die just awesome?!! It's called Thinking of You Honeycuts. I also used the Double Stitched Squares and Scallop Squares Honeycuts.
I have more cards that I made, but this will be the last one for now. I used the wonderful With Sympathy stamps and With Sympathy Honeycuts for this one. Distress Oxides in the masked circle opening with the Chin Up Buttercup Flowers keep this card clean and simple.
I think everything in this release is AWESOME! How about you?
Again, be sure to comment here on my blog and all the others for your chance to win one of two $50 gift certificates to the Honey Bee Shop! You won't want to miss any stop as the awesome designers have some beautiful inspirational cards to share with you!
