Waving Hello from My Beach House | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello my friends!  The beach is one of my most favorite places, and if I had a beach house, I'd invite you to join me at the beach!  (Socially distanced, of course!)   For my card today, I'm using the awesome new Beach House Add-on stamps and Honey Cuts that compliments the House Builder Card base set.  These are from Honey Bee Stamps amazing Hello Summer release!

Using the house shape from the House Builder Card Base set Honey Cuts, I die cut two house pieces and one hinge.  I used a piece of woodgrain paper from the Beach Vibes 6x6 paper pad and die cut just the lower portion of the house.  I adhered this to the lower portion of the house.

I stamped the images from the Beach House Add-on set from 80# Neenah Solar White card stock.  After I colored them with Copic markers, I die cut them with the coordinating dies.  I used two shades of green card stock to die cut the leaves.  The windows, shutters, porch and door knob are from the House Builder Card Base set.  I used some brown and two shades of green card stock for the palm trees and coconuts.  Be sure to cut an extra tree trunk if you want to make a taller tree like the one on the right.  To assemble the tree, I adhered the bottom layer for the leaves to the trunk and then shaped the leaves with my fingers and glued them onto the base.  I adhered a portion of the extra trunk to the bottom of another (it will be hidden by the surfboards.)  After I adhered the windows, I added some Glossy Accents to them and set it aside to dry.

I die cut the roof from the Beach House Add-on from some 80# Neenah and colored it with my Copic markers.  I had lots of fun practicing my flicking motions here!  I used the embossed lines in the roof die cut to plan my shading.  My copic marker colors for the roof are E33, E53, and E31.  When I finished coloring the roof, I added some thin foam tape to the back and adhered it on the beach house.

Before adhering the two house pieces with the hinge, I used a sentiment from the Flippin' Fabulous set and stamped it in black ink, along with the starfish from the same set.  After I colored it, I adhered the hinge and attached the card front to it. 

Now all you need to do is have fun arranging the front of your beach house!  I popped up the bicycle and beach ball with a thin foam square.  The sentiment on the card front is from the Beach House Add-on stamp set.  Before I stamped "Hello" I die cut the two wooden sign pieces and colored them with Copics.  I love how there are coordinating dies for the sentiments, as you see here for "waving".

Have you seen the new Honey Bee Stamps Hello Summer release?  If you haven't, you are missing some fun, summertime stamps and dies and should go check them out HERE!!  I sure appreciate you stopping by to take a look!  Thank you!
