Welcome to back to the second day of the May 2018 Release product introductions. Did you enjoy yesterdays introductions? I sure did, the Design Team and our Guest Designer Anna did an amazing job of showcasing them. If you missed the fun be sure to catch up HERE.
Today we are introducing 2 more products. Bee Happy Clear Stamp Set and Honeycomb Pattern Stencil. Hopefully you have hopped on over from the start of the Blog Hop HERE, I’ve shared a card there too and you will find all the Design Team links too 😉
I’ve a couple more cards to share with you using the Bee Happy clear stamp set.
First up I have this clean and simple love themed card. The Bee Happy clear stamp set contains this hexagon heart stamp and a couple of smaller hexagons which fit nicely inside the hexagons in the heart. I started by stamping the heart in VersaFine Onyx Black and then stamping the solid small hexagon in Altenew Ruby Red ink. I then fussy cut the heart out.
The bee is stamped, fussy cut out, coloured with Copic marker and clear Wink Of Stella added to the wings. Usually I would simply die cut the stitched die shape, stamped the sentiment and mounted the heart and bee. However, I thought I would try by hand at embossing with the die instead and I have to say I rather like the technique!
I wanted there to be a little subtle dimension having embossed the stitched square, so that is my reasoning for fussy cutting the heart and bee. The bee is adhered with 1 mm thick foam adhesive.
Lastly I have one more super CAS card to share…
I wanted to create a fun pattern using the trio of hexagon stamps, so I set the stamp in my MISTI tool and stamped away 😉 I used the acetate sheet the stamps come on for placement of my next stamped image. It was a little fiddly and time consuming, but I am pleased with the results.
I then repeated what I did with the card above and the small solid hexagon. This time I only stamped inside a few of the hexagons, randomly. It was almost a one layer card, but with it being so clean and simple I decided it needed a subtle white on white border and layered onto a white card base.
That’s all I have to share with you today using this clear stamp set, but be sure to hop along with the Design Team for even more inspiration…
