Hello Honey Bee friends! Today I’m sharing four cards I made (in one day!) using the awesome Bitty Buzzwords stamps and Honey Cuts. I also used four different stencils for the backgrounds on my cards!
These cards were really fun, and easy, to create! I do want to say that the two cards on the left side were made with backgrounds I created a while back. I love to sit down with my background stencils and play with all the inks, texture pastes, and foils!
To keep this post from becoming super lengthy, I’ll list the products (just click the name to check it out in the Honey Bee shop) I used for each card along with any special tips and/or notes. Of course, each card features the Bitty Buzzwords stamps and Honey Cuts! Each of the main sentiments are popped up with foam tape or squares. I used the Sentiment Banners Honey Cuts to die cut the secondary sentiments after I stamped them with the wonderful Bee Creative Intense Black ink. Also, I prep the stencils by spraying the back with Pixie Spray. It’s so helpful in keeping the stencils from shifting.
This card features the gorgeous Garden Lattice stencils. This is a set of two, however, I just used one layer. I added some Aquamarine Nuvo Embellishment Mousse through the stencil. When it was dry, I die cut it with a Deckle Edge A2 Honey Cut.
I love the subtle shine of the Embellishment Mousse!
This card uses the Honey Dipper Background stencil. I used Background Blender brushes to blend these Distress Oxides inks through the stencil: Faded Jeans, Broken China, and Mowed Lawn. I left the stencil in place and spread some transparent matte texture paste through it. When dry, I die cut it with a Scallop S2 Honey Cut.
The matte texture paste adds a lovely muted shine!
This background features the Layering Balloons stencil set. First I placed the top layer onto some 80# Neenah Solar White card stock and spread Deco Foil Transfer Gel through it. When it was dry, I used some pink sparkly foil from the stash, placed it over the piece, and ran it through my laminating machine. Then I used the other layer and added Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink with a Blender Brush.
I love the shimmer and shine of this festive card!
My final card again uses the gorgeous Garden Lattice stencil set. First I inked up a white card stock panel with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide. Then I added the bottom Garden Lattice stencil and added another, darker, layer of Peacock Feathers. Then I place the top stencil on it and smoothed on some Turquoise Sea Glitz Glitter Gel. The Panel is die cut with an A2 Double Stitched Frames die.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these cards and feel inspired to get your stencils out and have fun! The Bitty Buzzwords are definitely at the top of my most favorite sentiment sets ever!! Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful, and crafty, week!

These are great cards. I have lots of stencils and need to use them more frequently.
