Hiya! The Honey Bee Stamps Cheerful Love Release is now available in the Honey Bee store, yay!!! To celebrate the new release, we are having a two day blog hop called Cheerful Love. So please hop along with us both days to be inspired!

You should be arriving from the amazing Jo Ann's blog and before you keep hopping, I'm excited to share the first of many cards I know I will be making with this awesome release! I have a serious critter crush on the little Feelin' Foxy set!


I used my MISTI to create a watercolor "shadow" behind my sentiments. You can see it here in this video...



And can we talk about how awesome the Ridiculously Happy sentiment is? How good would you feel if someone said that to you?!

Annalisa Young said...

I really like how you used the edges of the cards to make the characters look like they're peeping in. I often forget to do that because I'm working on card panels, but I really like that look. And the watercolor-y sentiment is so fun. Great way to add some interest to the plain black. Thanks for sharing!

That little fox looks so happy. She makes me happy.
