Well Hello, Its Jo here from Daisy D's with your Wednesday, Bumbleberrys Blog Post.

I have been playing with the Brilliant Day Stamp Set.

 From our friends at Honey Bee Stamps.

I love their bold designs as they beg us to colour them. So out came the Alcohol Markers, and Polychromos in rainbow order. 



The problem was I couldn't stop playing.😄😄😄

Anyway lets show you were it all began.


Card One

Creating Borders






Honey Bee Stamps Brilliant Day


Neenah 80lb Card Stock


Memento Tuxedo Black


Alcohol Markers 

Spectrum Noirs



Polychromo Pencil Cinnamon


Over The Rainbow Pattern  Paper


Fun Foam


Wow White Opaque (fine) Embossing Powder  


5" x 7" Card Blank


Black Card Stock


Nuvo Drops in Red Berry, Ripened Pumpkin,English Mustard,Pioneer Green,Caribbean Ocean,and Midnight Blue. (Gloss,except the Pioneer Green) 




Firstly I stamped out the pencil image using my memento ink pad, on to 80lb Neenah card stock.




I then flip the image around and stamped the other side of a piece 4 3/4" x 5 1/2"


Then I Coloured my pencils in rainbow order with alcohol markers and used a polychromos pencil to colour, the top of the pencil to give a more realistic look.



I then backed the 5" x 7" 

card base in black card stock, added a strip of patterned paper and added my image using funky foam to add dimension.

I then added this to my card at an angle.

Heat embossed the sentiment, in white embossing powder on to more black card stock and placed it on to my card.


Adding the finishing touches I used various Nuvo Drops.


Inside the card I stamped in the same Memento ink




Card Two

Stamping In Rows




Same As Above in Card One


Card Blank 6" x 6" 


Glossy Accents or Nuvo Crystal Glaze


Ebony Black Nuvo drops





Using an acrylic block I stamp out three lines on the page.

I found doing the top and bottom and then the middle the easier of ways to stamp.

Colouring as before.




Then adding glossy accents to the body of the pencil and the nib. I allowed it to dry, then stamped and embossed my sentiment on to black card stock and lastly added the nuvo drops.




Card Three

Stamping On Kraft.(The quickest, and my Favorite)




Kraft Card Stock 4" x 6"

4" x 6" Card Blank

WoW White Embossing Powder ( Fine)

Polychromos in Geranium Red, Cadmium Orange,Cadmium Yellow,Light Green,Cobalt Green, and Red Violet.

Again I used the Cinnamon for the pencil  

White  Paint/Gesso




I first stamped on to the Kraft card stock in clear embossing ink, on the bottom section of my card. Then I embossed in wow white embossing powder, and heat set it.



I then ripped a piece of copy paper to cover the pencils, and splatted the Kraft

 card with white paint.



Once dry, I coloured in the pencils in the rainbow of polychromos and add a sentiment and embossed it in the same white embossing powder.

I slightly trimmed around the edges before mounting it on to the card blank.


I hope I shown how you can achieve different looks by choosing different ways of stamping.




Happy Stamping
