Honey Bee ~ New Release Stamps

Hello, friends!  I wanted to stop by today because I have some time off from work and recently purchased some awesome stamps from the new release at Honey Bee Stamps.  I had some fun and made a few cards...I couldn't wait to share them with you!

The stamp sets I ordered included Fa La La and Rejoice 4x6 stamp sets. I fell in love with the fonts and the sentiments...so versatile!

 

I made three cards yesterday. The first one used stamps from the Honey Bee Rejoice set. My card is a 5" square.  I die cut a stitched square and stamped the image and sentiment (all one stamp) in black ink, then stamped again in Versamark ink and clear embossed.  I colored in the image with Copic markers, then added sequins and glitter to the flowers for some sparkle and interest.


I am entering this card into the current "Anything Goes" challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  
I'm also entering it into the "Anything Goes" challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!





My next two cards used Honey Bee Stamps sentiments from both sets mentioned above paired with a nativity silhouette stamp ("Greatest Gift") from Hero Arts. I did some masking and distress inking and spritzing for the sky, adding a few Stickle drops here and there for shine.


I'm entering this card into the current "Anything Goes" challenge at Word Art Wednesday - Weeks #358-359.  (I actually bought these stamp sets with the prize I won last week at Word Art Wednesday! Thank you again!)

I have another set of cards stamped out and ready to color...I will be sure to share when done.  I am really excited to have these sentiments, they are the perfect size to pair with one main image and that makes for an easy, fun holiday card in my book!

Thanks for stopping by!
