Happy Wednesday Honey Bee friends! My card today features the totally adorable Sandie and Sis stamps and coordinating Honey Cuts. I had lots of fun tucking little Sis into the wheelbarrow of flowers and dressing up Sandie in a pretty patterned paper apron! Keep reading for all of the details!
To begin, I die cut the largest A7 Double Stitched Frames Honey Cut from 110# white card stock. I added some purple tape to mask off the edges, then I used the Background Blender Brushes and Hexagon Palm Blender brush (which I love for its flat surface when blending larger areas) to blend on the sky and grassy background. I used Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, and Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxides.
Next I die cut a fence with the fence die in the Horizon Slimline Borders Honey Cuts. This slimline die set is such a great one to have on hand since you can use the die cuts for any size card! I adhered the fence to the background and added the panel to a top-folding A7 card base with Bee Creative glue. I set this aside to work on my card elements.
I stamped the images from the Sandie and Sis stamp set with Intense Black ink, which is alcohol marker friendly. I truly love this ink! I have tried several other black alcohol friendly inks and this one is definitely my favorite! I colored all of the images with my Copic markers and then used the coordinating Honey Cuts to cut them out.
Next I stamped the little hats and apron with Bee Creative Intense Black ink onto some patterned paper from the Summer Stems 6×6 paper pad. I die cut them with the coordinating Honey Cuts, but decided to fussy cut up to the black stamped line. I used my Memento Tuxedo Black marker to go around the edges to hide the white core of the paper–it really gives them a more finished look. Next I adhered the hats and apron to the bears with Bee Creative glue. I adhered little Sis in the wheelbarrow after I trimmed off the bottom of the image so it wouldn’t show. I went ahead and glued a few flowers in the wheelbarrow and one for each bear to hold.
I stamped the sentiment from the My Favorite Flower stamp set and die cut it with the coordinating Honey Cut. Then I added foam tape to the bears, wheelbarrow, sentiment, bees, butterfly, and a few of the flowers and added them to my card. To finish it up, I used a white gel pen to add details to the hats, apron, and wheelbarrow just for fun!
I hope you’ve enjoy my card and have found some more inspiration on ways to use the adorable Sandie and Sis set! Thank you so much for stopping by!
