Craft Queen Honey Bear

Hello everyone, Effie here! Today I made a video of a quick colored card using our Honey Bears and Like a Boss stamp sets.  I used the small stamps in the Honey Bears set to create a cute background design that went behind my cut out panel.  Please enjoy the video!

First, I started off by stamping my bear on an A2 sized panel.  I stamped this adorable bear in our Copic friendly Caviar Hybrid Ink.  Then I colored the body with E13, E23 and E25. The bear’s mouth was colored with E00. The adorable chest hair patch was colored with RV02.  Then I grounded the bear on the panel by coloring in a gray base by blending some C1 and C5.

Then I took my pencil and drew a curved path stemming from the bear’s paw which I then cut out with my craft knife.  I planned on stamping a background pattern behind that cut path.  Then I took a side folding A2 cardbase and put it behind my cut panel.  I made tick marks along the curved path onto the cardbase which would serve as my guide to where I would be stamping my DIY background.  Next I took the small stamps within the Honey Bears set (honey comb, bees, honey pot and fish – these tiny stamps are SO CUTE!) and stamped them on the cardbase within that curved path with our Rose Gold Bangle Pigment Ink.

Next I double stamped the Craft Queen sentiment from our Like a Boss set in the same Rose Gold ink.  After I let the Rose Gold ink dry, I erased the tick marks on my card base.

Lastly, I adhered the panel onto the stamped cardbase with some foam tape!  Today’s card was a simple design but I love the subtlety of the rose gold combined with the starkly colored bear.

Thanks for stopping by today! See you next time!

    Love the underwear stamp on the back of the card. Definitely going to get that! Neat idea to hand cut out a unique area to highlight everything the bear loves to eat. Great card.

    I love this card-so cute! I purchased the rose gold ink and have not had good luck with it. It is sticky and gooey and doesn’t stamp even. Is there something I can do? I tried to find a place on this site to contact you but couldn’t.
