Hello all, Kia here creating a card with Honey Bee stamps today to introduce you to “Sunshine Thoughts”. This is a thank you card, the sentiment is stamped on the on the inside of the card
First, the front of my card. I am using Tim Holtz Distress inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Tumbled Glass for this card. To start I masked off some rays with removable tape the left side of a white piece of card stock. Next I blended over it with the Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed alternating between the two colours. I then die cut the sun, clouds and hearts from white card using the Rainbow Dreams Honey bee die set.
To the sun add Squeezed Lemonade. The top of the clouds was done using Tumbled Glass, and the hearts were done using first the Squeezed Lemonade, then blended the Tumbled Glass, creating the green. Did you know that green hearts represent gratitude?
On one of the clouds I stamped the sentiment “Sending Sunshine” using distress ink in Mustard Seed. I then stamped the “and” int the same colour below where the cloud would be and attached the green hearts below that using Nuvo adhesive.
I arranged the sun and clouds then attached them using varying layers of foam squares to create depth. Next step is to the middle green heart I added a crystal gem. Then attached them to a coordinating yellow mat leaving an 1/8′ boarder and mounted it on a pre-folded A2 white card.
On the inside of the card the sentiment is from the Bitty Buzzword stamps and dies from Honey Bee, echoing to the colours from the front.
Thank you for joining me today. I hope you enjoy today’s card, Sunshine Thoughts featuring Honey Bee Stamps. Following are links for the products which can be found in the Scrap’n Stamp store.
