Oceans & Mermaids. It’s release day at Honey Bee Stamps and we’re celebrating with a blog hop to celebrate the occasion! Two $50 gift certificates are being given away as prizes, so be sure and comment at each stop (see list below) by Sunday, July 16, for your chance to win! Winners will be announced Monday, July 17, at Noon (PST).
I cut the main panel using the A2 Double Stitched Frames Dies and then inked the background using Distress Oxide Inks. I stamped the mermaid and sentiment in black ink & then colored with Copic Markers. The mermaid was then popped up the image with foam dots on the main panel. To finish this design, I added a touch of sparkle to the seashell using a Wink of Stella clear brush marker and added three little rhinestones. The finished main panel was then popped up on the card base using foam adhesive.
For my second card, I used the Message in a Bottle set. This set contains so many fun options for inside the bottle!
I stamped the bottle in black twice, once on a piece of white cardstock and again on a piece of window sheet. The water image was stamped on the cardstock in blue and I added some sand along the edge for some texture. I stamped the cork image on a piece of thin cork and cut it out, adhering it to the assembled bottle. The main image was then popped up on a piece of kraft cardstock with foam adhesive for dimension. The sentiment was stamped in black ink.
I hope you’ll come hop along with us! This new release is amazing and the hop is just full of inspiration! Head on over to Nicole’s blog next to keep hopping!
