Hello Honey Bee friends! Get out your patterned paper and this awesome You Buzzword stamp set and coordinating Honey Cuts and let’s make some super quick and easy cards! Any of the other fabulous Buzzword sets would work too! All you need besides these are just some of your basic supplies, so let’s make some cards!
All of these cards were created in pretty much the same way. I used the Hugs and Kisses paper pad for the patterned paper. I thought about making these into true “eclipse” style cards, but I love that pierced shadow layer of the You Buzzword so much that I didn’t want to leave it off. Haha!
All of my cards are on top-folding A2 card bases. I did use the Sweet Stacks: Rectangles Honey Cuts for my layers, but you can just as easily measure and cut them with your paper trimmer. Before I adhered the patterned paper layer, I die cut the You Buzzword top layer from it. The shadow die cut layers totally cover it and no one will know!
The pink paper here is also in the Hugs and Kisses paper pad. I repeated the same mat layers of colors and patterned paper for the “you”. I die cut the black shadow layer of the You Buzzword three times for extra dimension. Bee Creative glue truly is my go-to glue and I used it to adhere all of the layers. This card has a few Sweethearts Clay Hearts on it for a bit of embellishment! The sub sentiment from the You stamp set is stamped with Bee Creative Clear embossing ink onto black card stock. I sprinkled on some white embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool. Next I added some of these awesome, new foam dots to pop it up on the card.
This next card also has pink paper from the Hugs and Kisses paper pad for a mat layer. I kept the “you” shadow layers all white this time. Also, I die cut extra “you” die cuts from white card stock to add more dimension. This time I stamped the sentiment with Intense Black ink onto some white card stock. I trimmed it with my paper trimmer and popped it up with foam dots (I used these foam dots for the sub sentiment on each card.) The You stamp set is filled with 20 wonderful sentiments to go with the “you” sentiment–this set will be in my stash for a long time!!!
I added bling to this card by swiping a clear glitter pen over the top layer of “you” and adhering some gems from the Hugs and Kisses gem sticker pack.
For my third card, I went all bold! I think this card would be fine to give to that awesome guy in your life!
For this card I used black and red card stock from my stash for the layers. I heat embossed the sub sentiment on a piece of the same red card stock and popped it up with foam dots. I adhered a few Red Hots acrylic hearts for just a touch of bling.
I love how these cards turned out and now I need to order another Hugs and Kisses paper pad! I also think these are perfect for Valentine’s day–just not the sweet and sappy type of card! Haha! There are so many occasions that you can use this You stamp set and coordinating Honey Cuts for! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope your day is a wonderful, and crafty, one!
