Honey Bee Stamps Summer Release Blog Hop – Day 2

Welcome to the Honey Bee Stamps Summer Release Blog Hop – Day 2!
To celebrate this huge release, Honey Bee Stamps is giving away a $25 gift certificate to the store for each day of the Hop! Be sure to comment on every stop along the way for Day 1 and Day 2 to win!

For each of my Beach House cards, I am using the following products:
Beach House Add-On Stamps | Beach House Add-On Honey Cuts | House Builder Card Base | Salvaged Brick Background Stencil | Watercolor Lines Background Stencils

I’m going to make a different roof for each house! I’m die cutting the roof from the Beach House Add-On Honey Cuts.
For my first house, I’m using Scattered Straw and Frayed Burlap distress ink and oxide. I’m also adding E34 to the embossed parts.
For the 2nd house, I’m using Copic markers and a flicking motion to color in the entire roof. I am using E41, E42, E43, and E44.
For the last house, I’m using the Scattered Straw and Frayed Burlap again, but doing a lighter coat.

For the house bases, I’m also going to try 3 different techniques.
For the 1st house, I’m using the Salvaged Brick Background Stencil and Frayed Burlap distress oxide.
For the 2nd and 3rd houses, I’m using the Watercolor Lines Background Stencils and distress oxides.

I’m using the doors and windows that come with the House Builder Base for the 2nd and 3rd houses and coloring them with Copic markers.

Now I’m going to start stamping my images from the Beach House Add-On Stamps and coloring them with Copic markers. Click on any image to view it larger! For my “Welcome” sign, I’m using a paddle as my stick!

For my palm trees, I’m going to blend Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron distress inks on a piece of white card stock and then die cut my leaves. For the trunk, I’m using E50, E31, E23, and E55.

Now I’m ready to start adhering my cards together! The process is the same for each card, so I’m only showing one house below. I am using 3D foam squares and strips for items I want to stick out (such as the palm tree, bike, and tiki torches). I am using a glue pen for tiny things, such as the leaves on the wreath and the palm leaves. I am using double sided tape for the fence.

Here’s another look at the finished cards!

For my 2nd project, I created these shaker tags!

To make these tags, I am using the Tag Along dies from Heffy Doodle. I am using the same tag die to cut the acetate for my shaker portion so that it fits perfectly.
Next, I’m blending some backgrounds with distress oxides and stencils.

I’m stamping my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then using my Copic markers to color my images.

I am adding “margarita salt” to the rim of my margarita using liquid glue and Frosted Sugar Powder from Dress My Craft. For my shakers, I’m using the Frosted Sugar Powder and Crystal Ice Cubes from Dress My Craft.

Here’s another photo of the finished tags!
