Hello friends! I'm so happy to be a part of the Honey Bee Stamps and Hero Arts blog hop! This is to celebrate their beautiful collaboration stamp set called You Are Amazing. They will be giving away TWO $50 shopping sprees during this hop--one to the Hero Arts store, and one to Honey Bee Stamps! Winners will be drawn from the comments left across the hop--comment on more blogs for more chances to win. So keep on reading until the end where you will find the entire hop list!
I love this set so much that I made three cards! These were so quick and easy to make! (I have the supply list for each card, with links, at the bottom of my post.)
For this first card I heat embossed the heart with white embossing powder onto a panel I die cut with the Honey Bee A2 Scallop die. Then I blended on Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, Wilted Violet, Spun Sugar. Then I used the Honey Bee Fluttering Hearts stencil and inked the same Distress Ink colors through it. It's easy to wipe any ink off of the embossing.
The sentiment is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink, fussy cut, and popped up with foam tape.
For this next card, I used various inks and applied them one by one in a rainbow pattern. I used my finger to soften the edges left by the ink pads. I added a shadow around the hand with a couple of gray Copic markers and fussy cut the heart.
I used the Honey Bee Stamps Fluttering Pierced Hearts Cover Plate die to add pattern to the card base. It's on an A2 top-folding pink card base. I love this beautiful sentiment that's in the You Are Amazing set!
For my final card, I used Hero Arts Tide Pool ink to stamp the heart onto white card stock and die cut it with the Honey Bee Stacking Pocket die. I stamped the stitching from the Honey Bee Pocket Full of Love set. Then I die cut the flap with the coordinating die.
The pocket is layered on patterned paper from Honey Bee's Spring Lullaby paper pad. Again, I stamped the sentiment in black ink and fussy cut it out.
