Heffy Doodle and Honey Bee Stamps Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to be part of the Heffy Doodle and Honey Bee Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop! I love both companies, they have amazing designs and so easy to combine them! I have 2 cards for you today in different styles: one elegant and one cute. Let me guide you through the cardmaking process.

CARD 1

For my first card I die cut a Heffy Doodle Stitched Rectangle from Copic friendly cardstock and stamped the Honey Bee Stamps Pretty Postage image on it. I used my Copics to colour it, kept the colours simple: reds and aqua. I added some dots when I was done with the colouring to add some texture to the leaves and flowers. I also used a black glaze pen to go over all the little black dots and a white gel pen for even more texture.

Then I die cut the Heffy Doodle Miss you sentiment: the shadow I cut from vellum, the sentiment itself I cut 2 times from dark red cardstock and layered them on top of each other. Even 2 layers make instant dimension!

I also stamped another sentiment from the Heffy Doodle More Classic sentiments set under the envelope, they go so well together.

I gave the panel a teal mat and chose a pretty patterned paper from the Honey Bee Stamps Love Letters paper pad for the background. As a finishing touch I added glossy accents to the hearts. Isn’t it pretty? If you want to have coordinating envelopes, Honey Bee Stamps has them ready for you! So cool!

CARD 2

For my second card I used a fun mirror stamping and die cutting technique. Jennifer McGuire has a great video on this, you find it here.

I stamped the cute racoon from Honey Bee Stamps Stolen my Heart stamp set with Lawn Fawn Jellyfish ink: it allowed me to do some no-line colouring and it is Copic marker friendly. For the mirror stamping I used MFT Mirror Image stamp but any big solid stamp would do. I managed to die cut both little racoons with the coordinating die, I followed Jennifer’s instructions. As the face expression wasn’t visible, I drew it back with a black thin line marker.

Then I used the Slimline die sets from Heffy Doodle to create the layers: a scalloped red rectangle (Slimline Pull Tab dies), a bit smaller dark grey stitched rectangle and a pretty frame (Stitched Slimline Trio) from cream cardstock (I love the Speckled Eggshell from Lawn Fawn). In the openings of the frame I used patterned paper from the Honey Bee Stamps Love Letters paper pad. I also inserted a light pink mat in between the dark grey rectangle and the frame.

The sentiment is from the Honey Bee Stamps Stolen my heart set: I heat embossed it on vellum with black sparkle embossing powder 2 times for a raised look. I used my Misti stamping tool for this, but even one layer of embossing powder givs a beautiful result! I used the coordinating die to cut it out and adhered it to the middle window using tiny drops of liquid glue behing the letters.

The card base is 3,5*8,5 inches. I popped up the racoons with 3D foam suares, added glossy accents to the nose and hearts and embellished the frame with tiny jewels from the Honey Bee Stamps Love letters gem collection. I love how this turned out, I hope it makes you smile too!
