Sweet As Honey! These Stamps are BEE-Utiful! {New from Impression Obsession}

Hey honey! Just wanted to buzzz by to share the Sweet As Honey stamp set from Impression Obsession. It's part of the latest release at IO and we're celebrating with a blog hop to share all the new sweets. Plus, I have a simple stencil layering idea that you can try TODAY using stencils in your stash.

The Sweet as Honey stamp set is the cornerstone of some new products that work perfectly together. The stamp set has a variety of SWEET little images including bees, honey, honeycomb and sentiments for a variety of cards. You'll love pairing it with the Honeycomb stencil, as well as the brand new coordinating 6x6 paper pack. (I didn't have the paper yet when I created these cards, but the Yellows Basics 6x6 pad is a another perfect pairing with this set!) 

So let's talk about stencil layering. This is the technique I used to add the circle-shaped honeycomb pattern on the card above. 

Try this stencil layering technique:
  • Choose a patterned stencil (like today's honeycomb) 
  • Choose one of the following: either a stencil with a large open shape (like the new circle stencil I used) or die cut a large shape from cardstock and use the negative piece as a homemade stencil. 
  • Layer one stencil on top of the other and ink over them together onto your card. (Use washi tape to help your layers stay in place if desired)
The stenciled circle shape creates a simple focal point and fun landing spot for the stamped and die cut elements to settle.  Speaking of landing spots. . . .did you catch the adorable new scalloped circle die I used on my second card? This set includes three scalloped circles that you'll use again and again, and their smaller size is perfect for sentiments and tags. (Or as a landing spot for bees and honey!)
Remember, we're celebrating this SWEET release with a two-day blog hop (this is day one!) I know you'll enjoy what the other designers are sharing this week!
