Honey Bee August Release Blog Hop



Good Morning Honey Bees! Welcome to our August release Honey Hop!!!

All this week we have been showing you little sneaks of our awesome new stamp sets and dies! 

Tomorrow our new release goes live and to celebrate we are showing you some beautiful projects, Today!!!

Here is my project featuring the new stamps!


Honey Bee Zen Florals, and Blessed stamp set
To make this, I began by trimming a foiled piece of patterned paper. Next I heat embossed in black the edge flowers from the beautiful Zen Florals set on vellum, then flipped the vellum and repeated the process.

Waiting for that to cool, I heat embossed in gold glitter the blessed sentiment from the Blessed stamp set, and die cut around it. 

I adhered the vellum on the patterned paper, and using 3D foam, attached the blessed on to the card. Next on gold paper, I heat embossed in black the "to have you". Attached that with foam adhesive and finished off with gold sequins. 

Now, on to the Hop:

What’s a Honey Hop without some sweet prizes, right? This time we not only have one awesome prize pack but TWO!! One winner will win our zen florals pack (Zen florals, Zen Bouquet, and each of their matching die sets) and our second winner will win our Alpha prize pack! (Color me alpha stamp set, sentiment alpha stamp set, and color me alpha die set). 

All you have to do to win is comment here, on the Honey Bee Stamps blog and again at each one of our designer’s blogs by Sunday August 28th. 

Winner will be announced on Monday August 29th at Noon PST.

So Hop along and get ready to BEE inspired!
