Honeypop Cards

Honeypop paper is one of my favorite new products.  I love pop up cards and this stuff makes some great ones.  Honeypop paper is honeycomb tissue paper.  There are stamps that are made to coordinate with the honeypop paper and they are adorable.  For my first card I chose the stamp set Cupcake Birdybird outside [1280x768]

The paper for this card is from the Echo Park. I stamped the little bird with the cherry in its mouth and colored it with my copic markers.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is also from the Cupcake Birdy set. Here is a picture of the inside of the card.

When you open the card, the cupcake spreads out.   The stamp set also comes with a stamp of half a cupcake to stamp on the honeypop paper.   The paper has a black arrow on it to show you which direction to stamp your image.  cucake birdy You need to make sure the arrows on your stamp are going the same direction as the arrow on the paper.

I love this technique so much, I wanted to try a Christmas card with it.  For the background paper on this card I printed one of the paper patterns from the Santa’s Village imagine cartridge on some kraft cardstock.  This gives it a vintage feel which is perfect for the images on this cartridge.  I added a poinsettia and an image of Santa checking his list.

I had a pack of green honeypop paper and thought I would try to make my own Christmas tree.  I drew half a Christmas tree on the paper and cut it out.  It worked!

I had so much fun with these projects.  The best tip I have for using the honeypop paper is to have some good scissors.  The paper is pretty thick.
