Heat embossing was the first stamping technique that won me over. I still am amazed by it. For these cards, I did simple heat embossing but cut the design to create two cards. You can do this with any stamps!

To make things simple, I used my Mini Misti Stamping Tool, but you could use an acrylic block. On colored cardstock, I white heat embossed sentiments from the Honey Bee Kindness Stamp Set (more on that below) and flowers from the Honey Bee Country Wreath Stamp Set. I was sure to stamp the images in the exact same spot on each piece… especially in the area where I was planning to do the horizontal cut for the split design.

I also heat embossed all the same images in the same spot with colored embossing powder on white cardstock. For the design to look extra-awesome, I made sure my colored embossing powders matched my cardstocks. (You could skip the embossing and use colored ink if you want.)

After I have all the colored embossing on the white cardstock, and the white embossing on the colored cardstock, I cut each piece horizontally… right through the sentiment. It seems weird to do, but I promise the results are worth it!

I then glued the stamped pieces onto a white notecard… matching the opposites up. They line up perfectly!

I love the unique look! I created six cards – two yellow, two pink, and two teal. Yellow is my favorite.

I also wanted to add tiny embossed dot details to the cards. I created the dots with my Quickie Glue Roller Pen and added the embossing powder. After heat setting it, I have the perfect details.

While I had out my supplies, I did a quick bonus card. For this one, I stamped the Honey Bee Country Wreath flowers with black ink and made the flowers bigger by drawing extra petals. I then used the Honey Bee Prayers Stamp Set and Honey Bee Prayers Die Set for the sentiment. Fun and fast!

STAMPS FOR A CAUSE

I am very excited to let you know that for the month of August, both Honey Bee Stamps and Simon Says Stamp will be donating 25% of all sales from the Kindness stamp set and the Kindness die set to the Kind Campaign! The Kind Campaign works with schools to fight bullying.

When I did the Share Handmade Kindness challenge last year, I encouraged folks to share kindness through cardmaking and also donate to the Kind Campaign if possible. I was excited when sweet Melissa from Honey Bee Stamps contacted me about this stamp set and donation. It is great! And hugs to Heidi from Simon Says Stamp for jumping on board, too. I love this industry.

You can buy the Kindness sets at Honey Bee Stamps or Simon Says Stamp. (Note: Due to a likely high demand for these products, please be patient. I promise everyone is doing their best to keep these in stock!)

  12. I think I like the Smile set the best (although I like the others too, next favorite is probably Kindness). Thanks for introducing me to these stamps!

  13. I just love your Kindness cards! It’s such a sophisticated look, but it’s really easy to achieve. I can’t wait to create my own creations using the split stamping technique! I am new to the Honey Bee brand, so I would have to say the Kindness set is my favorite. Now, off to the Honey Bee website to “bee” a busy little buyer!

  14. I love looking at the thumbnail of your video before watching the full thing. Sometimes, I try to guess what kind of technique was used. My favorite stamp set that you showed, is probably smile. It really is a tie between the kindness, smile, and the sentiment builder. 🙂

  15. You always amaze me with your unique cards..thinking outside the box with your designs! These new stamps/die sets are beautiful! If I had to pick one of their stamp sets that’s my favorite….I love the Country Blooms set…I don’t have anything like it!

  17. What a clever way to create this set of simple and yet beautiful cards! My favorite is the “Smile” stamp set.
    Thanks for sharing your great idea!

  18. I have a hard time picking a favorite. I live in Denmark and the storeowners here are NOT in any way believers, so stamp sets like Honey Bee’s Prayers and Bless Your Heart is not available here and it cost too much in custom and taxes for me to buy them from the US. Everytime you show theese stamp sets I google to see if I can get them in Europe, but no such luck.
    Please be grateful that you can get stamps expressing your faith as we are not all that blessed.

  19. Beautiful cards, I especially like the yellow and white combo. Really like the kindness stamp set. Thanks for the chance!

  20. Jennifer…all of these HBS stamps and die sets are beautiful! I don’t know that any one of them is a favorite over another. They’re SO versatile and I love all the sentiments. I love that some of the big words have matching dies!! 🙂 Thanks for sharing some more beautiful cards!! 🙂

  21. My favorite Honey Bee stamp set is Bless Your Heart. I just received the stamps. Now that I know there are matching dies, that’s my next move. Your cards look fabulous!
