Hello Honey Bee friends! I’m still adding to my birthday card stash with this card featuring the gorgeous Hello Sweetheart stamps and coordinating Honey Cuts. Instead of using the coordinating stencils color the flowers, as I did here, and here, I had some fun coloring with my Copics. Read on to learn how I added more popped up dimension to this beautiful image!
First I stamped the Hello Sweetheart image twice with Intense Black ink onto two pieces of 80# Neenah. To get the fabulous dimension of the flowers, I fussy cut the main flowers from the second stamped image. Then I colored the flowers and the image with my Copic markers.
For the flowers I used: RV99, R56, RV34, R83, RV11, and RV32. If you’ve ever wondered, I list the colors from dark to light because that’s how I color my images. To get the really rich depth in my coloring, I have learned that repeating my coloring a second time makes all the difference! I colored the leaves with YG17, YG25, YG23, and YG13. (The flowers that are underneath the popped up flowers are colored just with R56 around the edges.)
I used the coordinating Hello Sweetheart Honey Cut to cut out the heart shaped image. Then I added foam dots on the back of the fussy cut flowers and adhered them to the heart. I used thin foam strips to adhere the heart to a panel I die cut with a Double Stitched Squares Honey Cut. Next I created my own color-coordinated mat layer by coloring the edges of 4-½” square with Copic marker R56. I adhered it beneath the heart panel and then adhered that to a 4-¾” top-folding square card base. Bee Creative glue is my go to glue and is perfect for adhering your layers!
I used the Bitty Buzzwords stamps and Honey Cuts for my sentiment. I die cut the shadow from white card stock and “enjoy” three times from black card stock. I adhered all of the layers with Bee Creative glue and adhered it to the card with foam dots. I stamped “your day” from the Bitty Buzzwords stamp set with Intense Black ink. I trimmed it into a little banner shape and adhered it with glue.
I added some sparkle to my card with some beautiful gems from the Hugs and Kisses Gem Stickers pack. I love the various sizes of these new gems and how they are SO sparkly!! LOL!
I had so much fun making this card and hope you’ve found some inspiration here for your next card. Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful, and crafty, day!
