Hello and welcome back to Hungry Heffy Crafts! We are in the midst of an exciting week, celebrating the new Honey Bee Stamps release, which was designed in collaboration with ME!! (yippeee)
Today is day three, if you haven’t seen day one and two – you better go and take a look
DAY 1 – Announcing CELEBRATION BOX & HOORAY
DAY 2 – Annoucning WELCOME BABY
But today we are announcing PLAYFUL PUPS
I love animals, so it was particularly fun to create a set full of furry friends! In this set there is a larger dog which could be used as a mamma dog, and a whole litter of pups! I think this scruffy one is my fave! There is also a range of doggy accessories including separate tags which can be stamped onto the doggy collars!
Not only do I have two projects for you today, be sure to visit the Honey Bee Stamps blog where is there another project showcasing the new PLAYFUL PUPS set.
Let’s have a look at my projects using this set! First of all, this fun anniversary card!
For this card, I first stamped a load of the accessories randomly onto card and white heat embossed these. Next I used my trusty distress inks to blend an ombre effect over the stamped images – the embossed images resist the ink and really pop against the brightly coloured background!
The greeting I made using two stamps from the HOORAY stamp set. The font is basic and beautiful, and the words in this set can be used for so many occasions! You will get a better look on Friday when we do the full reveal!
Next I stamped two of the doggies onto neenah cardstock and coloured these using copic markers. I wanted one to look a little scruffy and one to look sleek – a bit like a weimaraner dog! They have such a gorgeous sleek silvery coat, so I used my warm greys to build up some silvery tones.
For the scruffy dog, I even added a cute little bow to make her a lady pup! The heart is from an older (but awesome) stamp set called Beautiful Life.
Let’s have a look at another project using these PLAYFUL PUPS!
What do you think of these three cuties!? I made a promise to myself to use more patterned paper in my projects this year so in this card I combined some patterned paper with some white card embossed with an embossing folder. I love the way dry embossing creates a lovely texture.
On this card I have used three different puppies from the PLAYFUL PUPS set, and given them each a bowl of chow! Two puppies have collars so I have coloured them to match their bowls.
I coloured this pups with some copic markers and then fussy cut the images. This stamp set does come with coordinating dies, but they were still in the factory when I was making this card, so i had to make do with a good old pair of fiskars scissors!
To add some texture and fun, I created some pennants to add to the card – I used a stamp from the set which can be used for this purpose, or can be used to make a bandanna on a pup. I like to think of new and creative ways to stretch my stamps like this!
So there you go, there is a sneak peek at PLAYFUL PUPS! Don’t forget to visit the Honey Bee Stamps Blog to see another project using this stamp set, and come back tomorrow to see another sneak peek!
Fabulous cards Lesley. This Playful Pup set is adorable.
