I am super excited to share with you my first project as a design team member for Honey Bee Stamps.  I am showcasing the Hello Gorgeous 6×8 stamp set and Hello Gorgeous Honey Cuts coordinating dies.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored the images in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the image with its coordinating die.


I cut another Neenah solar white card stock, measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 for my card front.  Using a sponge, I started applying color to the card stock with my worn lipstick distress oxide ink, then adding and blending it with cracked pistachio.  Using my wet watercolor brush, I put some gold watercolor on my acrylic block and started splattering watercolor on the front of the card.


I used a die from my stash and adhered the “hello” script sentiment on my card panel.


I adhered the flowers I colored from the Hello Gorgeous stamp set and also added some Crystal Mix Dew Drops to finish my design.  Here is a close-up of the card:


I hope you like my card today and got inspired.  This stamp set is a must-have.


The supplies I used are listed and linked below in case you would like to purchase them.  Have an amazing week!
