Honey Bee Cheerful Love Blog Hop

Hi Crafty Friends!!
The Honey Bee Stamps Cheerful Love Release is now available in the store. To celebrate the new release, we are having a two day blog hop called Cheerful Love. So please hop along with us both days to be inspired! 

 For my projects I used the Feelin' Foxy & Foxy Sentiments stamps.


 I created the background on this card by using the Outdoor scene builder stencils  I sponge dabbed the Birch tree background stencil with Frayed burlap Distress oxide ink, over Kraft card stock. I colored the sky with a light blue zig clean color real brush marker. Adding a bit of glossy accents to my colored butterflies gives them a 3D look.





This sweet fox is popping out of our Celebration box die
I love that you can die cut the flaps separately and the die cuts a slot to add any little thing you like to the box.  I used my Chameleon Color Tones Double-Ended Colored Pencils
to color the pretty fox. 
I had fun with the background on this card.  Starting with some watercolor paper I created a Distress Oxide watercolor background, then I cut out the panel using the A2 double stitched frame die  I also used the smallest double stitched die to create my title piece.  The FOXY sentiment is so cute!  I colored this fox using Prima watercolors

  3. While all three cards are awesome, I have to admit my favorite is the top one with the fox in the 'woods'! The trees don't look like they come from a stencil but seemed to have a depth that makes them appear to have been produced from and embossing folder. And I would have never considered using a kraft card base to do that on! It may be why the depth is so vivid.
