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!
Be sure to visit each blog & leave a comment to be entered to win!!! We will be giving away two $50 gift cards to the Honey Bee Stamps store, one from each day. The winners will be posted on our blog Tuesday, February 27th.

 For my card today, I mixed two of the new sets together ... Penny the Platypus and Ridiculously Happy


To start, I stamped my sentiment on a piece of white cardstock in crisp black ink. Next, I chose the bunch of flowers, from Penny the Platypus, and stamped those numerous times around my sentiment. 


Using the Copic markers you see in the photo above, I colored each of my flower bunches in.


After they were all colored I added a bit of clear Wink of Stella to each flower. It's hard to tell from the photo, but they are shimmery and so pretty. 

I added a bit of white twine around the bottom before popping it up with dimensional foam and adhering it to my kraft card base. Sweet and simple!


Now it's time to hop along and comment on each of the blogs for your chance to win one of the $50 gift certificates to the Honey Bee Stamps store!
