HoneyBee Stamps New Release Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the BLOGHOP for newest Release at HoneyBee Stamps.  All items ARE in the Shop today.

I had the pleasure of using two new stamp sets for today's Blog Hop.      
Hello Gorgeous
Merry and Joy

Here is my card:

I simply adore the Flowery images in Hello Gorgeous

I chose one and stamped it in yellow on White CS
Then set to coloring with the ziggys, I have a list Colors at the end of the is post.
This is the first coloring session done in Post Op with my son at the hospital...he has recovered nicely, thanks for the prayers:))

Next, I chose darker shades of each color and added more details.
Thrilled with the outcome:))

I decided to use MERRY twice from the new set for a BOLD, Hand Brushed looking sentiment.

  • I used the MISI to ink up the words with two shades of Spectrum Noir Aqua markers: Spice and Begonia
  • Then inked the rest of the sentiment is a Warm Hazelnut ink.
  • Trimmed the panel down with a Stitched Rectangle
  • Matted it with a soft pink CS

Hope you enjoy the rest of the HOP!
