Happy Wednesday Honey Bee Friends! Today I’m sharing my card using the beautiful On The Line: Succulents stamps and Honey Cuts. I’ve done some no-line coloring too, and set the scene with some paper from the beautiful to 6″ x 8-½” Marvelous Moments paper pad. Check out the details!
First I stamped both succulent images from On The Line: Succulents in Bee Creative No-Line Coloring ink onto 80# Neenah cardstock. I used my MISTI to stamp each one a few times to darken the ink (my eyes aren’t so young anymore-LOL!) It’s been quite a while since I’ve done no-line coloring and it’s a technique that I really enjoy! I used these Copic markers to color the images:
- Pink tipped succulents: V01, G24, G21, G20, RV13, RV10
- Bluish green succulents: G19, G16, G02, G000
- Dark green leaves: G29, G07, G05
- Succulent sprigs: YG17, YG25, YG21
Here’s a really close-up photo of my coloring:
I used my Bitty Buzz Cutter and the coordinating Honey Cuts to cut them out. There is an actual line that stamps with the succulents, and there was no way I was going to try using a Copic marker for that. I looked through my Prismacolor Pencils and found that the 70% French Grey color was just right. I just used a ruler and then drew the line.
Then I stamped one of the several sentiments included in the On The Line: Succulents set with Intense Black ink. I absolutely love that there are coordinating dies for the sentiments, and used the coordinating one to cut it out.
Next I chose some paper from the Marvelous Moments paper pad. I absolutely love the new size of 6″ x 8-½”!! This size is large enough for 5″ x 7″ cards, slimline cards; and as I’ve done here, I only needed one sheet of paper! I trimmed my chosen paper to a piece measuring 4″ x 5-¼”. I used the reverse side of the remaining piece of the paper and trimmed strip to 2″ x 4″. I adhered these with Bee Creative glue to a top-folding A2 card base.
I used foam tape to adhere the succulent images and sentiment to my card. Then I used a few of the sparkly gems from the Marvelous Moments Gem Stickers to add some bling!
I love how this card turned out! Other than the coloring time, it came together in a snap! I have more ideas for this On The Line: Succulents set such as a gate-fold card, a step-fold card, and I’m sure there are other ideas too!
I sure hope I’ve inspired you to give this gorgeous set a try. If you check my Instagram later today, I plan on posting a reel to show some of the process for this card. Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!
