Hello and welcome to Day 1 of Honey Bee Stamps Hello Summer blog hop! I'm so happy to be here to share my creations with this amazing release! There will be a $25 gift card given away from both days' commenters so be sure to leave a comment at each stop for more chances to win! There is lots of inspiration from the awesome and talented designers in this hop so keep reading until the end where you'll find the entire hop list!
I was so excited when we found out that this new release would include some slimline dies! These are such a fun way to create a different style card!
I really like how this Slimline Salutations: Eyelet Border Honey Cut cuts the center panel separate from the scalloped eyelet frame. I used a couple of Blender Brushes to ink up the sky background with Distress Oxides in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers.
I die cut the Making Waves Border Honey Cuts from some colored card stock and the sand from patterned paper from the Beach Vibes 6x6 paper pack. These dies are 8-¾" long so you can use them lengthwise on your card. I added some texture paste to the waves and sprinkled with some glitter before it dried.
The Flip Flop Builder Honey Cuts is just the most fun to play with! This patterned paper is also from the Beach Vibes paper pad. I added some greenery and a plumeria flower from the Paradise Blooms set. The sentiment from the Flippin' Fabulous set is stamped in coordinating ink.
I find it interesting how much smaller the flip flops look on this card versus the one you'll see next! It's all about the perspective I guess!
In case you missed them, here are the cards I've shared on my Instagram for each sneak peek day. I have the links to shop the Hello Summer products I used below each photo.

Marisela Delgado said: Gorgeous cards! I am loving all of these "chanclas" (flip-flops). So cute! For summer, our baseball team, the San Antonio Missions change their name to the Flying Chanclas. It's a nod to Mexican moms and grandmas who throw their chanclas at you when they are angry! haha Happy Summer! email@example.comReplyDelete
