Hello Honey Bee friends! I have a sweet card to share today featuring the NEW awesome Honey Jar Paper Piecing Honey Cuts! I’ve also tried out the new Bee Creative No-line Coloring ink! (I’ll give you a hint: I love it!!) Keep reading for the details!
First I created my card base by die cutting three shades of teal card stock with the Hexagon Cover Plate Honey Cuts (available as a set or individually). I used all of the Hexagon Cover Plates except for the Stipple Layer. Then I used Bee Creative glue to adhere all the layers together and then add them to a light teal A2 sized panel. Then I glued the stack to an A2 top-folding card base. These dies create such a stunning dimensional card base and are some of my most favorites!
Next I die cut the Honey Jar Paper Piecing dies from 80# Neenah Solar white card stock. To make coloring them easier, I put the pieces back into the negative space and held them in place with some purple tape on the back. I used Copic markers to color all of the pieces. Jar and honey drips: Y19, Y18, Y15, Y18. Lid: C2, C0, C00.
Next I stamped the flowers, leaves, and bees in the NEW Bee Creative No-Line Coloring ink. These stamps are in the Chin Up Buttercup and the Busy Bees stamp sets. I colored the leaves with YG67, YG17, and YG23. I shaded the flowers with the “C” Copic markers listed previously. The bees are colored with the same yellows as the honey jar. Next I used a Micron .05 black pen to add in the eyes and antenna to the bees.
When I finished my coloring, I used the coordinating Busy Bees and Chin Up Buttercup dies to cut out the images. I popped up the honey jar with foam tape and arranged the flowers around the jar. I also popped up a couple of the bees. To finish up I stamped the sentiment from the new Just BEEcause stamp set and cut it out with the coordinating die.
My verdict about Honey Bee’s No-line Coloring ink? I love it, and it’s my favorite! I’ve tried a few others and the color of this ink is easy for me to see and also, I didn’t have to stamp the images repeatedly to get it dark enough to see! This will definitely be my go-to ink for all of my no-line coloring!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope the rest of your week is fun, and crafty!
