MFT Stamps | January Release – We’re Halfway There!

January 8, 2022

Hello friends! For my third post today, I have some adorable little bees from the new “Honey Bees” Stamp Set to share with you! I combined them with the new Beehive and Hanging Branch Die-namics.

To start my card, I trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock slightly larger than 4.25″ x 5.5″ and blended the top portion of it with both Peacock Feathers and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Inks. Once blended, I then splattered this piece lightly with diluted opaque white acrylic paint and then trimmed it down to 4.25″ x 5.5″ to remove any ink stains (from ink blending) from the sides of my card.

I stamped all of my images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored them with Copic Markers. I then used the coordinating Honey Bees Die-namics to cut them out. For my beehive and tree branch, I cut both of them from another piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and then colored them with Copic Markers as well.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Beehive: Y21, Y23, Y26, E31, E33
  • Bee’sWings : 0, C00, C1, C3
  • Bee’s Body: W4, W6, W8; YR 20, YR21, YR23
  • Tree Branch: E41, E42, E43, E44
  • Leaves: YG01, YG05, YG17, YG67

    This is so bright and cheery, Rachel. The color palette is wonderful. The blues against the yellow make them pop! Thanks for sharing the Copics you used, it sure helps this gal know what will look good. So appreciate the inspiration. Crafty hugs!
