Honey Bee Hello Summer Release Blog Hop

Hi all & welcome to day 2 of Honey Bee Hello Summer release blog hop. For complete list of the hop for day 1 please visit HERE.

Honey Bee is really rocking it with this summer release. And, one of my favorite set to play with from this release is the Birds of Paradise set The birds are fun & cute.




Here for my card, I paired the bird with the Hexagon Thin Frames dies. I die cut the thin frames on a piece of white cardstock and then colored them with Copic markers. Then, I simply having fun with the placement before finally adding the bird and the leaves. Finished by adding sentiment from Tropical Tweets set & Candlelight Confetti Mix.

I got into this design so much that I ended up making another card with same style, just different color & different bird. :)




Now, I know you have several blogs to check out, so I am keeping mine short & sweet. As always, Honey Bee is offering a $25 gift card for each hop day. Simply join the hop & comment along the way to enter. Winner will be announced on Honey Bee blog.

From here please hop on over to my talented teammate, Ilda Dias blog. For complete list of the hop participants, please go to Honey Bee Stamps Blog. Thank you all for stopping by here. We really appreciate all the support. Hugs.

The Ton Stamp July 2020 Release



Hi all and welcome to The Ton Stamp July 2020 release. We are releasing 9 new dies and they're a available in the store today.

Let's get on with the projects, shall we? For my 1st card, I am using Anemone Spray & the Tall & Skinny Alpha Coverplate.




For this card, I totally go for a clean & modern look. I just love the contrast of the black  outline with the white background and only add soft coloring to the flowers. Seriously you could go as simple or as fancy with this image. It's so pretty on its own. And, the tall & skinny dies definitely help to create the modern design.

For y next cad, I am using the gorgeous Lovely Dahlia Layering dies.




I really, really love The Ton layering dies. I am not saying this because I design for them, but because I really love them. I think Effie is pretty brilliant in her layering design. I die cut each layer from white cardstock and then I did ink blending using Iris BloomsViolet Fringe & Bright Fern.

To finish the card, I used sentiment from Easy Expressions set.

On to my next card, which is using one of my favorite flower, hibiscus. The Lovely Hibiscus Layering dies is simply beautiful and I just love it. 




For this one, I did ink blending using Soft Garnet, Coral CavernBright Fern. One of the reason I love using ink blending techniques for layered dies is because you can achieve so may different shade from using 1 color based on how much ink you put and the pressure you used. No need to cut layers from many different colored cardstock. This is just my preference. For the outline & sentiment I used metallic cardstock. Sentiment is from Many Sentiments Coverplate dies.

The team has created some amazing projects for this release. Please check out what the team has created & I hope you love this release as much as we do. Hugs....
