Hello! Carol here and I’m very excited to be sharing my card today for my very first Honey Bee Stamps blog post! I’ve used several of the new items from the awesome Ramblin’ Man release. This card was so fun to create! Anytime I can get out my watercolors, texture paste and stencils it’s a fun time!
I started out by using one of the stencils from the new Sheet Music stencil set. I used a Nuvo glue pen to coat the back of the stencil, then let it dry. It dries tacky and makes the stencil stick to your cardstock without tearing the paper when you remove it. I have had this glossy black embossing paste forever!! I’m glad it hasn’t dried out at all as it is perfect for creating the lines for the sheet music. I applied the paste through the stencil onto some Neenah 80# cardstock. After it dried, I cut two of the sections off and adhered it to a 5-¼” x 4″ black panel that is on an A2 folded card.
Next I stamped the guitar from the Music Speaks set with Versamark and heat embossed it with WOW Silver embossing powder. I wanted the guitar to look like those I’ve seen that have that shiny, swirling look so I watercolored it with some pearlescent watercolors in a turquoise and a pearl color. I love the shine and shimmer of it!
I stamped and die cut the music notes from the Music Speaks set and die cut them with the coordinating Honey Cuts. The sentiment from the Rockstar Sentiments was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed twice with WOW clear embossing powder. I die cut it with the coordinating Rockstar Sentiments Honey Cut. The little “sparkle” stamp is stamped with Versamark and embossed with WOW silver embossing powder. Everything except those are popped up with foam tape. I added a few Prism Gem Stickers for a bit of sparkle.
I really love these sets because if you change up the colors you can easily make a girly card for that special musician or music lover!
