Welcome to the Honey Bee Stamps November Release Honey Hop!!!
All this week we have been showing you little sneaks of our awesome new embellishments, stamp sets and dies! Well, here they all are! Everything will be available for purchase today in our shop HERE.
For my project today I am using the “Little Pickup” stamp set and the “Sending You” Sentiment set along with their coordinating die sets.
I just love this cute little truck! I knew that I wanted this cute stamp to be center stage so I gathered some scene building dies (Mountain range & stitched hills) and started assembling!
You might have seen this lil sneak on instagram when I was putting my “Little Pickup” together.
Now you don’t have to cut out all the pieces you see in this photo but it sure makes it fun. I love that the die set includes the tires and the window dies so you can make layered and interactive cards with this set. I fussy cut the fenders and popped them up with a bit of foam tape. I covered the wheels in glossy accents after die cutting them from another truck stamped image.
I had this Daniel Smith watercolor I have been wanting to use for a long time called Autumn Mystery Duochrome. I thought it gave the truck a rusty type of look while still looking oh so sparkly and pretty, The color changes slightly depending on the angle you are looking at it from.
After I got my truck assembled I glued the tree to the bed of the truck and added just a bit of the new Honey Bee Stamps exclusive glitter glass. I thought it gave the perfect icy-snowy texture. I also added the same glitter glass to the top of the mountains, and all the snowy hills. I used some Ranger Multi Medium in the Matte finish to glue on the glitter and gently pushed the glitter into the glue so it would stick very well. Once it was all dry I dusted off the excess.
I attached the truck to my scene with some foam tape. I stamped and die cut the sentiment on the front hill and attached that below the truck with a double layer of foam tape.
To finish it off I added some dots of glue and sprinkled on some glitter glass that I hand-dyed a soft blue color. *Video Coming Soon on embellishment dyeing process*
This was SO much fun to piece together. You all are going to love playing with this stamp set and all of the wonderful new releases from Honey Bee Stamps.
