Paper Smooches Happy Hellos

My card features super cute new Happy Hellos stamp set with new Happy Hellos Icons dies. I also used previously released Honeycomb die which works perfectly with the little bee.  🙂

Copic markers – BG10, BG32, W2, Y21, YR23, YR24, 100

I die-cut the honeycomb from two patterned papers and paper-pieced “hi” using a third pattern, all from Carta Bella’s It’s a Girl. The bee was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers (listed above), die-cut and popped up on clear foam squares. As a finishing touch, I adhered a few Rainbow Hearts. (I love these hearts and use them often.)
