The Market Cart is on the Beach | Honey Bee Stamps

 Hello crafty friends!  Today I have a fun card using Honey Bee Stamps Market Cart Builder Honey Cuts! I've moved the market cart from the flower market to the beach to sell some sea shells!  Anyone thinking of the old tongue twister "she sells seashells by the seashore..."?  Good!  Now it'll be stuck in your brain like it has been mine--LOL!

For the card's background I chose a pretty pattern paper from the Beach Vibes 6x6 paper pad and die cut it with the largest Deckle Edge A2 Honey Cut.  I had a scrap of paper left (it looks like sand) and I die cut it at the bottom of the Deckle Edge die.  Then I used a hill die from the Horizon Slimline Borders die set to cut the top.  I glued the layers together with Bee Creative glue and then glue them to a top-folding A2 card base.

Next I used more of the beautiful Beach Vibes paper to die cut the Market Cart.  I just placed the die at the top edge of the paper so that I would not have the awning it normally cuts.  Then I used a background blender brush to add a bit of Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink around the edges.

Then I die cut the wheel and tire from some Distress Woodgrain card stock and added Peacock Feathers and Weathered Wood Distress Oxide inks to them with a blending brush.  I adhered them together with glue and added them to the cart.

I die cut the bottom awning from the Market Cart die set from white card stock.  Next I chose some images from the awesome Hello Summer stamp set and inked them up with Bee Creative Intense Black ink (the umbrella, grass, and shells.)  Then I colored them all with my Copic markers.  I die cut the Hello Summer images with the coordinating Honey Cuts.

To finish up the cart, I adhered all the pieces together with Bee Creative glue, added foam tape to the back and adhered it to the card.  I also popped up the grass pieces with foam tape for more dimension.

Then I used the same BG Copic markers that I used on the umbrella and colored a scrap of white card stock in an ombré pattern.  I used the hello from Bitty Buzzwords Honey Cuts and die cut the top layer of the sentiment.  For some extra dimension I die cut the top layer twice more and the shadow layer once from white card stock.  I adhered all of the layers together with Bee Creative glue.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment in some coordinating teal ink, die cut it with a Sentiment Banners Honey Cut and added foam tape to the back of both sentiments.

Of course, I had to add a bit of sparkle!  I used a clear glitter pen to add that pretty sparkle and shine to the "hello" and also all of the seashells.  I sure wish photos would capture how pretty it is!

I love this Market Cart set so much!  I can see it filled with pumpkins in the fall--what ideas do you have? Thanks, as always, so very much for stopping by!  Stay crafty!!
