Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Afternoon Release Blog Hop - Day 1

Hello, Everyone!

I'm so happy to be sharing some inspiration with you from the newest Honey Bee Stamps release - Autumn Afternoon.

This release is full of all things Fall - which is my favorite season!

Today I have a card to share with you that uses the adorable Let's Hang Out stamp set



I began by cutting down a white piece of cardstock to 4 x 5.25 inches. Using a piece of blue painter's tape, I masked off the bottom third of the card. I used my ink blending tool and applied Distress Oxide inks in Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot to create the night sky.

I then switched the position of the mask and masked off the top two thirds of the cardstock. I applied Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Forest Moss, and Black Soot to create the grass portion of the card. 

I flicked water on to the entire panel to create the look of texture, and I also flicked white acryllic paint on to the top portion of the card to look like stars. 



After stamping out several images in black ink on to white cardstock, I colored them with my copic markers and then used the matching die set to cut them out. 

I arranged them into this little scene and then adhered them down with liquid glue. 

I stamped a sentiment on to a white piece of cardstock and trimmed it down. After gluing it down to a yellow cardstock matte, I adhered the finished sentiment piece down to the card and finished off the card by applying dry adhesive to the back of my panel and adhering it down to a cut and scored 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base.

  3. Kelly, what a cute card and unique style! It just makes me feel like going to the pumpkin patch already! (Of course it's also unseasonably cold here, which also makes me feel like it's time to go, but I'm sure it's more your card. :) )
