I used a watercolor technique from this week’s Make It Monday#230: Cover Plate Watercoloring with Ashley to make his tag. I used removable sticky label to create the stencil with PTI’s Peony Cover Plate die.

After water coloring and removing the stencil, I added Glossy Accents “dew”…..IMG_0482editedand some green Stickles too.

Make It Monday #224: Two-Toned Stamped Sentiments

Hi! Thanks for visiting Honeybeelane. PRIZE ALERT through 27 Sept! Make sure you read to the end of this post.

So! I’m here with a quick post for Make It Monday #224. This week Danielle’s showed us how to make a two-toned sentiment with stamps and dies.  Go here, to see her tips for this super fun technique!

Here are Danielle’s cards:

MIMcards1

Here’s mine:  IMG_7541editedI stamped the sentiment in black ink on the red die cut. Then I stamped in VersaMark on the white cs and heat embossed in red. Next, I traced the sentiment in white and black. Lastly, I traced the entire sentiment in Glossy Accents. I’m not sure that I like the busyness of the 3 colors.

So, I think that I will try re-making this card with this technique, but next time I will use white embossing powder on the red card stock instead of black ink. I used PTI’s Heart Cover Plate Die and Graceful Greetings and Choose Joy stamps sets.

Make It Monday #222: Die Cut Kissing

Here I am with another MIM post. 🙂 This week Betsy used an old stamp kissing technique but changed it up a bit by using a stamp and a die cut instead of two stamps. Honestly, stamp kissing is a very new technique to me. But then, I’m a newbie at stamping.  I started this wonderful adventure with my friend, Cindy, just a short 2 1/2 years ago! This technique was fun and I think I’ll be trying it again very soon!

IMG_0610editedFirst, I did a test run with the 2 PTI products I wanted to use, the Bloomers stamp set, and the Heart cover Plate die.  The birthday sentiment is from the Bloomers stamp set too.

The process……

I trimmed the stamped panel down and had some pretty strips left.

IMG_0598edited

I couldn’t bare to toss them out, so I used them to decorate the inside……..

IMG_0619edited

which is very unusual for me. I’m very happy with how it turned out.

IMG_0605edited I stamped the inside with “Many Blessings” from PTI’S Scripted Stamp Set. Besides playing this over at PTI’s MIM #221, I’d also like to play this over at WAW’s Challenge #198 – Anything Goes

SSS Wednesday’s Simon Says Anything Goes.

Here’s the one I made.

IMG_0271editedI used a stamp from PTI’s A Cheerful Heart sentiment stamp set, the cherries are from PTI’s A Second Helping of Sunshine and the striped paper is from the Clipsters kit.

I enjoy using this technique.

I have tried the technique in the past and have fun with it every time I use it. Here are some cards that I made a while back.

Abby’s Project – Make It Monday #220: Die Cut Mini Notebooks

HI I’m Abby! I’m the almost 11 y.o. daughter (20 August) of Honeybee. I decided that I really liked Mrs. Phillips MIM #220 project. So I made a little notebook this morning. Watch her video to see how easy it is to make one yourself!

IMG_9874editedI used some stamps from PTI’s Ahoy Stamp Set to stamp the front page of the notebook.

IMG_9876editedI’m going to share this over at SSS Kid’s Summer Vacation Challenge: Anything Goes.

I like to color on stamps with different colors. That’s what I did with the little anchor stamp. Then I used a circle punch to punch it out. The anchor is covering up the staple that I used to hold the notebook together.
