ODBDSLC203 Honeycomb Thanks


Hi Stampers! 

I wanted to create a card for this week’s Our Daily Bread Designs ODBDSLC203 Sketch and decided to use a few new ODBD stamps along with a retired Stampin' Up! sentiment, Short & Sweet :-).  

I hope that you will have a chance to visit the ODBD site- they have a wonderful Design Team and many inspirational examples in the gallery!!

To create this card:

Ink the OBDB Honeycomb Mini stamp using Summer Starfruit Classic Ink and repeatedly stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Use the AquaPainter™ to soften the stamped images and while the paper is still wet, re-ink the stamp image using Baked Brown Sugar and repeatedly stamp again to create your own background paper. 

Distress the edges using the Distressing Tool, apply Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink with the Sponge Dauber and mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock. 

Using Early Espresso Classic Ink, stamp the hive image from Bee Happy and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.  Color the image using Stampin’ Blendabilities along with Stampin’ Write markers, ink from the Pool Party Classic Ink pad with the AquaPainter™ and use a Sponge Dauber to apply Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink. 

Cut the border for the lower portion of the sketch using the Big Shot™ and the Beautiful Border Die to cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Use the Sponge Dauber with Baked Brown Sugar to tone down the white and adhere to the card front.

Add the 5/8” strip of Early Espresso Satin Ribbon and adhere the focal image to the card front. 

Adhere the 5/8” triple Early Espresso Satin Ribbon bow and add the layered sentiment below the ribbon.

Mount the entire card front to the card base.  Use the Color Spritzer Tool along with the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker to add a bit of distressing and finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Short & Sweet, ODBD Honeycomb Mini. Be Happy

Ink: Early Espresso, Summer Starfruit, Baled Brown Sugar, Pool Party, Stampin’ Blendabilities- Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Collections, Stampin’ Write Markers- Sahara Sand, Early Espresso

Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Early Espresso

Accessories: Big Shot™, Squares Collection Framelits™, ODBD Beautiful Border Die, AquaPainter™, Sponge Daubers, Oval Punch, 5/8” Satin Ribbon (from my stash)
