Season To Sparkle Blog Hop Day 1| Honey Bee Stamps



Hello Friends and welcome to Day 1 of the Honey Bee Stamps Season To Sparkle Blog Hop. If you have arrived from the uber-talented Mindy Eggen's Blog you are on the right track. I'll fill you in on where to go next at the end of this post. 


Today I have 4 sparkly cards to share with you featuring this Holiday Release, you so let's get started.

CARD DETAILS

If you have been catching the sneak peeks or have noticed the Release Banners you may have already seen this first card. It's so sparkly and beautiful that I had to make a few more and share with you all how easily they came together.


So to begin, I die cut the top WINTER PRISM COVERPLATE and the base one using white cardstock. For the middle layer, I first added a layer of Moonstone Glimmer paste to the panel, let it dry and then die cut it using the middle coverplate. You could just use glitter card stock, but I didn't have any on hand, so this worked really well.

I then lined up all the layers in order and glued them together.


Next, I stamped out the sentiment for each of the cards using the SEASON TO SPARKLE stamp set and then heat embossed the lettering in silver. I then used the coordinating SEASON TO SPARKLE die set to cut out the sentiments.

For the white card, I added a piece of patterned paper from the LOG CABIN Paper pad behind the Prisms to look like a pale sky was in the background and then glued it to the card base.

To add some additional embellishments to the card front, I used the LAYERING SNOWFLAKE dies that I had also added glimmer paste too. I then finished off by adding little PRISM GEM stickers for some more sparkle.


This next card was done in the exact same process, only using a different sentiment and color.


Absolutely love how these cards sparkle!


And finally the red version of the sparkly card.


I think these cards would be great to mass-produce for the holiday as they have the wow factor and actually are quite simple to make. Although, I would recommend getting glitter paper to save you the glitter application and drying time!


Since this hop is called Season To Sparkle, here is another sparkly card! For this card, I used the STAINED GLASS COVERPLATE to create this stained glass cross card.


The first thing I did was make an embossed impression using the STAINED GLASS COVERPLATE onto a piece of cardstock. I  then planed out the design and colored it in using Copic Markers. Once the background was colored in I added a layer of Moonstone Glimmer paste and set it off to the side to dry.


I then die cut a white panel using the STAINED GLASS COVERPLATE die cut layer to add to the top of the colored layer, doing my best to line it up with the design. I felt like the white didn't make the colors pop enough, so that's when I die cut and glued on another layer using black cardstock this time.

To the center of the cross, I added a tiny die-cut heart that came from the GINGERBREAD HOUSE ADD ON dies.


To finish off this colorful card, I die cut the BELIEVE and colored it in rainbow order using the same colors that I had used on the glass. To the BELIEVE die cut, I added a layer of liquid pixie dust and topped it off with glossy accents. It's difficult to see but I used vellum to make the shadow layer.

I also added the sentiments from the BELIEVE stamp set that I had die cut using the BANNER dies.
