Honey Bee Little Pickup Stamp Set


Have you seen the Honey Bee Little Pickup Stamp Set?  I think it is adorable!  The stamp set has matching dies as well.  My card share today features three stamps from the set: 1) the pickup, 2) wooden rails for the truck bed, and 3) hearts.

Before explaining the card, let me share why I have not posted any artwork for several days.  My precious sister passed away on January 10th, and that has occupied my mind and time.  It has been a very emotional time for me so I decided I needed to create a card to get my mind refocused.  Thus, I created this card that I’m sharing.

Honey Bee Little Truck Stamp Set

The card does not include a sentiment; however, it will be a get well card / valentine card for my brother-in-law who just had major surgery and ended up in the ICU.  Yes, there has been a lot of emotional things going on in my life, but I am trying to get back to creating and posting.

On to the card.  I decided to create a scene for the pickup.  I used Neenah Solar White Card Stock on which I created the scene.  After stamping and coloring the truck with various Copic Sketch Markers (i.e., BG10, BG11, and GB23), I masked it to include the wooden rails in a brown ink.  I then masked the rails to include the hearts and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers (i.e., R27, R29, and RV25).  I added two pieces of card stock, one green and the other gray.  The green is for a grassy, sloped  berm, and the gray for a road on which the truck is traveling.  I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders Dies for the two pieces.

I created the tree in the foreground with a tree stamp from the retired Stampin’ Up! (SU) Happy Scenes Stamp Set.  I used the same stamp set to create the pine trees in the background of the scene.  I hand drew the mountains in the background and colored them with grayish Copic Sketch Markers.

Creating this card featuring the Honey Bee Little Pickup Stamp Set was a lot of fun!  I hope you are inspired!  I am submitting the card for the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge.  Carolyn (snowmanqueen) on SCS is the featured stamper.  She has a wonderful gallery of cards.  You can check them out here.

Firm Reliance on Divine Providence!

ROMANS 1:18-20 (NIV)

“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.  For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”

ODBD A True Friend

Have you seen the gorgeous Bearded Iris stamp from the ODBD A True Friend stamp set?  It is a large stamp, but it is gorgeous.  The card I’m sharing with you today spotlights a set of Bearded Irises.

ODBD A True Friend

If you like the Bearded Iris, you can get only that stamp here without the sentiments that come with the stamp set.

Yes, indeed this is a large floral stamp – stamped three times on my card!! This card is for Vicki’s (vdutchr) “So Coral Cantaloupe” Color Challenge, CC592, on Splitcoaststampers!  Vicki picked three colors that are beautiful together!  The colors are SU So Saffron, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Calypso Coral.  I colored the irises with Copic Sketch Markers that closely match the challenge colors.

I think I overdid it, don’t you? The stamp image is large, and I couldn’t stop with one stamped iris, I had to stamp three (using masking, of course)!!!  Go big, or go home!  Isn’t that the cliche? LOL

Dessert (i.e., extra points) for the color challenge is “dimension”.  I used foam tape to pop up the Spellbinders 5 x 7 Herloom Legacy die cut onto the white card base.  I added clear Wink of Stella to the beards of the irises. Hopefully you can see that.

I am also submitting this card to the Our Daily Bread Designs blog for its ODBDSLC276, Anything that Grows with ODBD.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful, blessed day!

UPDATE – 7-26-16:  This card was chosen as the Splitcoaststampers Favorite for the Color Challenge for last Tuesday!  What an honor!!
