Hello and welcome!
I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog!!! Today I mixed and matched a few different stamp and dies and paired them on a cute and simple card with a bit of summer vibes and sunshine!
To start, I die cut some honey combs using Stacked Honeycombs SugarCut from Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock since it’s white and works great with Distress inks. I prepared an extended A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) white card base from Neenah Solar White paper and arranged the die cuts on the card front. I inked some combs with Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seeds and Fossilized Amber Distress inks and the blending brushes. I also added some tiny droplets both to the card base and the honey combs using Vintage Photo Distress ink and a plain white gouache to add more interest to the pattern. Before popping the honey combs on a foam tape, I simply stamped the matching sentiment from Hey Honey stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink using my MISTI tool.
The beautiful flowers and leaves were die cut from Floral Pocket Tag SugarCut. I worked on some scraps of a white cardstock and then added colors with Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron and Moved Lawn Distress inks using again he blending brushes. The cutest bees come from Hey Honey stamp set that I used before for the sentiment. I helped myself with the coordinating Hey Honey SugarCut to die cut quickly a few bee shapes and then stamped the bodies with Hero Arts Butter Bar dye ink. Finally I added the black stripes and wings to the bees using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and started arranging all the die cuts on the card front. A few clear sparkling sequins finished this cute and lovely project.
That’s all for today! Hope this cheerful and cute summer card will inspire you! As always thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!
