Four Easy Cards Featuring Bitty Buzzwords with Stenciled Backgrounds | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Wednesday friends!  Today I'm sharing four cards I made (in one day!) using the awesome Honey Bee Stamps Bitty Buzzwords stamp set and coordinating dies.  I used four different stenciled backgrounds to go with each one!

 These cards really were very easy to create!  I do want to say that the two cards on the left side in the photo above were made with backgrounds I created a while back.  I love to sit down with my background stencils and play with all the inks, texture pastes and foils!

To keep this post from becoming super lengthy, I'll list the products used beneath each card (aside from the Bitty Buzzwords) and mention any special tips or notes, as needed.  Each of the main sentiments are popped up with foam tape.  I used the Sentiment Banners dies to die cut the secondary sentiments after I stamped them with the new Bee Creative Intense Black ink.  Also, I spray the back of all stencils with Pixie Spray!  So helpful for holding the stencils down.  All of the products will be listed, with links, at the end of my post!

This features the gorgeous Garden Lattice stencils.  This is a set of two, however, I just used one layer.  I added some Aquamarine Nuvo Embellishment Mousse through the stencil.  When it was dry, I die cut it with an A2 Deckle Edge die.

I love the subtle shine of the Embellishment Mousse!

The next card uses the Honey Dipper Background stencil.  I used Background Blender brushes to blend these Distress Oxides: Faded Jeans, Broken China, and Mowed Lawn.  I left the stencil in place and spread some Ranger Transparent Matte Texture Paste through it.  When dry I die cut it with an A2 Scallop die.

The matte texture paste adds a lovely muted shine!

This background features the Layering Balloons stencil set.  First I placed the top layer onto some 80# Neenah Solar White and spread Deco Foil Transfer Gel through it.  When it was dry, I used some pink sparkly foil from my stash, placed it over the piece, and ran it through my Minc Mini foiling machine.  Then I used the other layer and added Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide with a Blender Brush.

I love the shimmer and shine of this festive card!

This next card is a background I made quite some time ago with the Garden Lattice stencil set.  First I inked up a white card stock panel with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide.  Then I added the bottom Garden Lattice stencil, and added more Peacock Feathers for a tone-on-tone look.  Then I placed the top stencil on it and smoothed on some Turquoise Sea Glitz Glitter Gel.  The panel is die cut with an A2 Double Stitched Frames die.

I really hope you've enjoyed these cards and feel inspired to get your stencils out and have fun!  The Bitty Buzzwords are at the top of my most favorite sentiment sets!!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

  1. Wonderful stenciled cards, Carol. Each is so unique, yet similar with their focal sentiments -- great cards
