Blessed to Know You with Honey Bee Stamps

Tara’ s Blessed to Know You card featuring stamps from Honey Bee and Concord & 9th is a great way to let someone know you care.  Raya here for Tara again, she’ll be back next week, I hope waiting to hear if Fiona created any chaos in her life.   Decided to reshare this card because it gives me the sentiment Honey Bee and the fab orange background created with Concord&9 just give me the warm fuzzies.

Original Post —-

Happy Tuesday!  I’m working on getting myself mentally prepared for Thanksgiving next weekend (it’s a little bit harder when you live in the south, y’all), so a card celebrating how blessed I am seemed fitting!  Of course, I’m using the ‘blessed’ dies from the Honey Bee “Bitty Buzzwords” set (it’s just so pretty!) and I decided to pair it with an older stamp set by Concord & 9th which is still in stock – Just Because.

I started this project digging through some scraps to find something I wanted to die cut my word out of… here I’ve used some orange metallic card stock over a background made from Dina Wakley Media sprays.   Once I started with yellow, I really wanted to find a sunflower image to pair with it… but that’s just going to have to be something that goes on my wish list, I guess!  I noticed the sketchy blossom in this stamp set, however, and decided together with the leaves, branches & splatters that it would be a good fit!   I stamped in Distress Oxide Inks exclusively- Crackling CampfireWild HoneySpiced Marmalade & Vintage Photo.

I added a bit of shimmer to finish off my otherwise simple card.  While I don’t have any of the Mica Sprays, I do still have a good supply of Perfect Pearl Mist (which I’m guessing are like the Mica Sprays without the dye in them) and so I’ve used the color Sunflower here.  If you’ve got the Perfect Pearls powders, you could create your own sprays simply by mixing them with water in a spritzer bottle.   A bit of clear bling finished everything off!

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 349} Hello There!

Happy Tuesday & Hello There, Sweet Friends!

Today’s card uses a fun combo of products to make a sweet and simple card… florals by Hampton Art Stamps (Hello Beautiful set), Hello There from Bold Text #1 dies by Tim Holtz and the little sweet friend is from Honey Bee Stamps Bitty Buzzwords.  Of course, I’m still playing around with my new Distress color, so today you see a simple color combo of Distress Oxide Inks- Saltwater Taffy and Twisted Citron.

Of course, there’s more fun details like the stitched border from MFT, 3D foam squares and some lime sequins by Studio Katia!  I wish I could tell you where the pink card base came from, but I’m pretty impressed how well it matched the Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide ink!

I’m pretty pleased with this card… really want to play around with other sentiments from the die set in combo with stamped greetings!  Hope you like it too 🙂

Inky hugs,

Tara

Inspired by you

Hello all! Kia back with you today to share my card for day 25 of the Random Act of Cardness series. Today’s prompt word is “Flowers”.

I have used flowers by Honey Bee Stamps, which I stamped on vellum using Seedless Preserves distress ink. My background is done using a Paper Rose die to cut a piece which I used as a stencil, adding embossing ink, then heat embossing with Broken China distress ink.

When the heat embossing was finished I added distress ink in Seedless Preservcs around the edges of the heat embossed panel and attached it to my card base using foam tape.

I then inked up the centre die piece using the left over ink from my distress ink Seedless Preserves brush and attached the piece to the card using foam strips. To the back of the blooms I added vellum tape from my EZ runner.

To finish my card I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink, trimmed it and added to the card again using foam strips.

Thanks so much for joining me today. Following are Affiliate links for the products I used for this card, at no extra expense to you.
