Honey Bee One Layer Wonder with Kelly Latevola

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday, and thanks for stopping by our blog today! Please join us in welcoming Kelly Latevola as a special guest sharing some fresh inspiration from Honey Bee stamps! Don’t forget to watch the video for more information and enjoy!

I’m Kelly Latevola and I’m so excited to be here on Simon Says Stamp to share some adorable Honey Bee Stamps sets with you! If you’ve followed my blog or seen a Youtube video of mine it will not surprise you that today’s project is a one layer card! 

I started by stamping and masking. It’s easy to get confused about what goes first in a one layer scene. I try to remember whatever I want to see the most of gets stamped first. So for this card I wanted to see the flowers the most. They go first. For the cake I want to see the entire strawberry. They go first. I hope that helps you sort it out when you’re stamping. 


You might notice that the cake stand is a little bit taller on my card than it is in the stamp set. It’s not your eyes. It really is taller. I used a little trick to make the stand taller so it fit my card better. It’s really easy and can help you get more out of sets you already own. 


Once the stamping is complete I got started with the Copic coloring. For me this is my very favorite part. I did speed up the coloring a bit to make the video a more reasonable length but you can see everything from the masking to the cake stand to the sentiment in the video below:

WATCH THE VIDEO:


I think a scene would have been adorable but honestly, I love how clean this turned out. The white background really lets the bright red in the card shine! What do you think? Should I have gone with a full scene?

Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope you found a little something to inspire you for your next project :)
