Now that we’ve made all of the formal introductions, let’s get onto the projects!

Amy Sheffer is featuring Quoted: Honeycomb.

Quoted: Honeycomb is a $5 set, but the potential of what you can do with it is amazing. Isn’t the background on this card that Amy created so neat? I love he color variations and how she brushed the background with a water brush to create a dripping honey look.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Quoted: Honeycomb
  • INK: Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold, Saffron Spice, Honey Nut, True Black
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White and Soft Stone card stock
  • OTHER: True Black baker’s twine, black mist

 

I love how striking the black background is on this card and the effect of embossing the honeycomb hexagons with clear embossing powder. And doesn’t the striping on the sentiment tag give off the perfect “bee” feel?
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Quoted: Honeycomb
  • INK: Versamark, True Black, Harvest Gold, Soft Stone
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, True Black, Harvest Gold card stock, Bitty Big: Soft Stone
  • DIES: Tag Sale #2, Round Off Edgers
  • OTHER: clear embossing powder, True Black baker’s twine, clothespin, white craft paint

 

The background on this card is a favorite of mine with the multiple colors of the hexagons/honeycomb and the bees. I also love how Amy cut the sentiment into multiple strips before attaching it to the card front.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Quoted: Honeycomb
  • INK: Fresh Snow, Saffron Spice, Soft Stone, Harvest Gold, Classic Kraft
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Classic Kraft, Saffron Spice, True Black
  • OTHER: True Black baker’s twine, white craft paint

 

Keeway-Tsao

Keeway Tsao is featuring Year of Psalms: December + Round Off Edger dies.

Doing a galaxy style background is perfect to pair with this month’s psalm. I love the variations of color that Keeway used and how she added additional stamped stars to complete the look.
Supplies:
  • STAMPS: Year of Psalms: December
  • INK: Enchanted Evening, Versamark
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White
  • OTHER: White Embossing Powder, Various distress inks

 

How soft and pretty is this Valentine card? I love the rounded edge detail that Keeway did using the new Round Off Edgers dies. Here she layered two of the edger dies: one with cardstock and one with vellum and the effect is lovely.

Supplies:

  • STAMPS: Farmer’s Market Florals, You Have My Heart
  • INK: Sweet Blush, Lovely Lady, Autumn Rose, Spring Moss, Prairie Grass, Versamark
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Autumn Rose, Vellum Cardstock
  • DIES: Round Off Edgers, Farmer’s Market Florals
  • OTHER: Foam Tape
Instead of using the Round Off Edger dies on a direct edge on her project, Keeway used it to highlight the focal point on her card. It’s a simple idea with a great effect!

Supplies:

  • STAMPS: Huge Sentiments
  • INK: Hawaiian Shores , Blueberry Sky, Versamark
  • PAPER: Blueberry Sky, Stamper’s Select White
  • DIES: Round Off Edgers, Huge Sentiments
  • OTHER: Silver Embossing Powder, Foam Tape
