Hello friends!! Today I’m joining in the celebration over at Honey Bee Stamps for their Summer Release!! Today is the first day of this two day blog hop for this incredible release! I have a few cards to share so lets dive right on in!
My first card features the super fun Luau Stamp Set and the Raise a Glass Stamp Set! You probably don’t know this about me but I’m a big tiki fan! My husband and I have attended tiki events, whenever we travel we have to check out the local tiki bar, and I have a growing collection of tiki cups. So when I saw the Luau Stamp Set I couldn’t wait to turn the tiki masks into tiki cups!!!
To create this card I first stamped the two tiki cups in a combination of distress oxides. I started with the solid layer for the image, inking it completely then stamping it. I then would partially ink up the same layer with a slightly darker color along the edges and then stamp again. This creates a slight gradation and makes the cup appear convexed. Next, I stamped the detail layer in an even darker color.
- Solid Layer: Cracked Pistachio and partially inked in Lucky Clover
- Detail Layer: Pine Needles
- Solid Layer: Broken China and partially inked in Salty Ocean
- Detail Layer: Blueprint Sketch
After I had stamped the cups stamped, I then die cut them with the matching dies. I then stamped the two grass clumps in Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles Distress Oxides and then die cut with the matching dies. Next, I stamped the orange from the Raise a Glass Stamp Set in Wild Honey and Ripe Persimmon and die cut with the matching dies. I then stamped several other images from the Raise a Glass Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black, copic colored them, and then die cut them out with the matching dies.
- Pink: RV23 + RV04
- Red: R17 + R37
- White: BG10
- Purple: V15 + V17
- Flower: Y02 , Y17, YR68, BG10
- Green: G07 + G28
Next, I stamped the front of an A2 top-folding Kraft card base with a sentiment from the Sea Breeze Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black. I then finished the card by adhering the die cuts with foam squares.
My next card features just the Luau Stamp Set but this time I kept the masks masks. LOL!
For this card I first stamped an 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel of Bristol paper repeatedly with several images from the Luau Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black. I then watercolored the images in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
- Ukulele: 026, 027
- Masks: 277, 946, 856, 969, 947, 451
- Leis: 055, 933, 451
- Background: 243
When I had finished coloring the panel I then adhered it onto an A2 top-folding card base made from black cardstock. Lastly, I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Sea Breeze Stamp Set on black cardstock, die cut it with the matching dies and then adhered it to the card front with foam squares.
My last two cards features the new Quilt Triangle Thin Frames Die Set.
To create these cards, I first die cut two set of triangle frames with the Quilt Triangle Thin Frames Die Set out of white cardstock.
I then ink blended each frame with a different Distress Oxide (Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch) in a gradation.
Next, I arranged my triangles, picked them up with a piece of press’n seal, added adhesive and then adhered them to the front of a white or gray A2 top-folding card base. I then stamped a sentiment from the Friend Stamp Set. I used Weathered Wood Distress Oxide for the white card and white heat embossed the gray card.
And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed my cards! Thank you so much for stopping by!
