Honey Bee Stamps 1st Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Hi crafty friends!   Welcome to Honey Bee Stamps 1st birthday blog hop!   Thanks for joining us on our week long birthday celebration!   Today the designers are featuring the brand new stamp set "Happy Everything" with a sweet little kit put together by designer Lisa Cisneros.   We have lots planned for you this week and of course, lots of prizes!   Just leave a comment on the designers' blogs along the hop for your chance to win!   

You should have arrived here from Angel's blog, but if not, click here to start at the beginning!

For my birthday card, I mounted the embossed aqua paper included in the kit to black cardstock.   Next I adhered some of the dotted acetate (flipped to the reverse side so I could use the paler pink dots) to half of the aqua panel.   I cut one of the included doilies in half and stamped 'Happy' from Happy Everything on the white side.   I added a strip of black cardstock between the acetate and doily.   Next, I stamped 'Everything' onto some acetate and heat embossed it with some Brutus Monroe silver EP.   I fussy cut around the word and then adhered it to the panel.   
I inked one of the wooden hearts from the kit with some black ink and then dipped it in my Versamark ink pad and added some more of the silver EP and heat set it.  I love how the black shows through the embossing powder!

I hope you've enjoyed my card today!   Happy Birthday, Honey Bee Stamps!   Your next stop on the hop is Nicki's blog!   Don't forget to leave a comment before you go for a chance to win!
