I couldn’t resist pulling out my all-time favourite Honey Bee Stamps stamp set – Zen Bouquet – and attempt to make a couple of Christmas cards with it!
I heat embossed the large image from the Zen Bouquet stamp set onto watercolour paper with Nuvo’s white embossing powder. I used my Tombow markers and a water brush to color it in and kept the color combo to red and greens only.
After everything had dried I splattered on some gold using one of the gold watercolours from the Gansai Tambi Starry colors palette. Again I let everything dry then cut my card fronts using the largest die from Honey Bee’s A2 Double Stitched Frames Honey Cuts die set.
For my sentiments I used the Merry Christmas stamp set and coordinating Honey Cuts dies. I die cut the “Holidays” and “Christmas” from gold glitter paper and backed them with vellum that was die cut from the coordinating outline dies.
The “Merry” and “Happy” were stamped onto red and green card stock and heat embossed with the same white embossing powder before being die cut with their coordinating outline dies.
I finished off the insides of the cards by stamping the sentiments from the Merry & Bright stamp set in red and green inks and that was it!
To see how these cards came together check out my video below:
