Flower and Bees Cards with Hero Arts!

 Hello and Welcome! Today's cards feature Hero Arts Honey Pot and Bees and Flowers die sets. I made four different cards using these die sets.

For my first card, I started with an A2 sized card base using smooth black heavy weight cardstock. 

I created two backgrounds using Hero Arts Bees and Flowers Bold Prints background stamp and Simon Says Stamps Pawsitively Saturated Ink in Seafoam and Surf. I started by inking the entire background with the Seafoam Ink, then I inked the edges with Surf to create a darker area around the background. I then stamped the background stamp using the Surf ink. 

I die cut the honey pot from Lawn Fawn's NO.2 Pencil Cardstock and added detail to the pot using various Copic markers. 

I die cut the flowers and bees from smooth white cardstock and then colored them in with Copic markers. 

I stamped the "have a Bee-youtiful Day" sentiment from Gina K Designs Beautiful Bees stamp set using VersaMark Ink and white embossing powder. 

I added some yellow and white bakers twine to the honey pot. I also added some foam dots to the back of the bees to make them stand out more. 

For my next card, I started with an A2 sized card base using smooth black heavy weight cardstock. 

I created the same background as the previous card, but this time I used Simon Says Stamps Pawsitively Saturated Ink in Bubblegum and Sweets. 

For this card, I added the die cut piece for the top of the honey pot that looks like a piece of cloth. I colored everything with Copic markers. I cut and colored the pot and flowers the same as the previous card. I added some glossy accents to the honey pot and honey dipper to make it look like honey was dripping off them. 

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment "Hello There" from MFT More Essential Sentiments using VersaMark Ink and white embossing powder. 

My next card is another A2 sized card from smooth black heavy weight cardstock. 

This time for the background, I used Simon Says Stamps Pawsitively Saturated Ink in Lemonade and Sunbeam. Then I stamped the background with Hero Arts Abstract Honeycomb Bold Prints and Lawn Fawn NO.2 Pencil ink. 

I die cut the honey pot and dipper from Lawn Fawn's NO.2 Pencil cardstock and added details to it using Copic markers. 

I die cut the fabric topper and bees from smooth white cardstock and colored them in with Copic markers. 

I die cut the word "honey" from Hero Arts Honey Pot die set, three times, twice from smooth black cardstock and once from a smooth shiny black cardstock. 

I stamped the sentiment "You Are the Sweetest" from MFT More Essential Sentiments using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink. 

I added some glossy accents to the pot and dipper to make it look like dripping honey again, but this time I colored in the glossy area under the dipper to look more like honey. 

My last card, is a slimline card using smooth black heavy weight cardstock. For my background on this card, I used Simon Says Stamps Pawsitively Saturated ink in Lemonade and Sunbeam. Then I splattered black ink, NO.2 Pencil ink and a darker yellow ink. I also splattered some Copic white paint. 

Once the background dried, I added the sentiment "sending you" and the die cut piece "hugs" from Honey Bee Stamps Bitty Buzzwords. 

Then I added my flowers and honey pot. I colored everything as I did in the previous cards, only this time, I colored the flowers using various colors of pink. 

I added some twine around the honey pot and then glued everything down to the card. I added foam dots to the back of the bees to give them some dimension. 

I absolutely love how these cards came out. If you don't already own Hero Arts Honey Pot and Flowers and Bees, you need to add it to your craft stash! Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
