Honeycomb Happiness for the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop

Happy New Year Everyone!

Brand new Occasions Catalogs and Sale-a-Bration is just the way to kick off the New Year! Don’t you think? I am so excited about all the new offerings we have for you and what better way to showcase tons of stuff but to have a Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop!
The Sale-a-Bration Set I’m featuring today is Honeycomb Happiness. Such a sweet set, don’t you agree?

So what I wanted to capture here was a special card with heavy rich texture…so I used all Watercolor Paper as I love how it feels and looks.
The Card Base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and the mat is 3 3/4 x 5
  • I stamped right on the mat using Black Stazon then stamped the ice cream part of the image onto scraps of watercolor paper. I know extravagant, right? lol
  • The colors I used for the ice cream are Soft Sky, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Re-inkers. Oh, I also used Crumb Cake and Soft Suede for the cones.
  • So color in your cones with an Aqua Painter using the Crumb Cake first and then hi-lite with the Soft Suede. I also used the new “Wink of Stella” in gold to highlight the crosshatch marks on the cone. I’m in love with this product. It’s a must have!!
  • Do a bit of a color wash with the Soft Sky “ on the mat for a soft effect.
  • The Ice Cream images that you stamped on the scraps are what will be colored using the other re-inkers. I shaded a bit on the left side of each. Attach with Dimensionals over the Ice Cream Cone images on your Mat
  • The little banner on the bottom is using watercolor paper as well. The Sentiment “Wish Big” is from “A Dozen Thoughts” and stamped in Black Stazon. I did a color wash over it once it dried using the Soft Sky re-inker and my Aqua Painter. Attached it with dimensionals and added a Rhinestone on either side.
I hope you like my little creation…’s came out just the way I envisioned. Love when that happens. Smile
