Happy World Kindness Day!
Our world needs more kindness – now, more than ever. Here at Honey Bee Stamps, we love spreading kindness. So today seems like the perfect day to share a little extra!
Today I'm sharing a kindess card with the Kindness Stamp Set and coordinating dies, and pairing the greetings with the Zen Floral Stamp Set and Busy Bees Stamp Set. Rainbow makes everyone happy, right?!
On a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock the border from the Zen Floral Stamp Set was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The florals were colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and the background along the bottom edge was watercolored with water brush pen and marker.
To divide the top from the bottom without the addition of multiple layers, a thin strip of dark gray cardstock was adhered right above the floral watercolored border.
The word, "kindness" from the Kindness Dies was die cut from cardstock adhered to Fun Foam with Stick It. Each letter of the word was inked with a Distress Ink in rainbow order! I adhered the die cut word right above the gray strip as shown. Additional greetings from the Kindness Stamp Set were stamped above the die cut greeting with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
Bees and dotted "bumblebee trails" from the Busy Bees Stamp Set were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The bees were finished with a layer of Glossy Accents.
Additional flowers from the Zen Floral Stamp Set were stamped on Brisol Smooth Cardstock with Versamark Ink, heat embossed with white embossing powder, colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and die cut with the coordinating dies.
