Hello friends! Today I'm sharing my card that features a piece of beautiful, and so dreamy, paper from Honey Bee Stamps' new Vitamin Sea paper pad! And can you believe I've never used the fun Sand Castle Builder Honey Cuts? It's a great time to use them with some of the newest ocean themed Honey Bee products. Keep reading for all the details! (If you're on Instagram, I started making reels to go with some of my cards and I have one for this one. Click HERE to see a bit of my creating this card!)
First I created my card base by die cutting this patterned paper from the Vitamin Sea paper pad with a Sweet Stacks: Rectangles die. (Don't you love the new 6" x 8-½" size?!!) I adhered the paper to an A2 card with Bee Creative glue.
Next I used a detail blender brush to ink up a piece of 80# Neenah with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink. Then I put the piece into my MISTI and stamped it with the Sandy Shores Background stamp and Antique Linen Distress Ink--not Oxide--as I found this ink stamped a bit darker. Then I die cut the panel with the Sand Castle Builder Honey Cuts. I didn't use all of the sand castle pieces, but now I have extras for another card. I added them to the card with foam squares.
I created more pieces for my scene by die cutting some of the dies from the Shoreline Scene Builder Honey Cuts from 80# Neenah. I used some Copic markers to color them and the sand castle flag. The Copic colors are: palm trees and grass: G14, YG09, YG11, E39, E37, E35; sailboat and flag: BG53, B00, C3, C1, C00.
I used my scissors to cut foam squares in half and added them to the back of the trees, grass and sailboat to adhere them to the card. I used Bee Creative glue to adhere the seagulls. A Micron 005 pen made it easy to add the beak and eye details to the seagulls.
I stamped the sentiment from the Seas The Day set with Intense Black ink. Then I cut it out with the coordinating die. I popped this up with foam strips. (Yes, I do like dimension on my cards--Haha!) I'm amazed at the beauty of the patterned paper and how it makes such an easy, and beautiful, card!
I just love the calm and serenity this card evolves. This card could be used for several different occasions, depending on what you write inside. Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful, crafty day!
