Honeycomb Embellishments (140566) come in three colors in the package: White, Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron. They open out into a half-dome, so if you put two of them together, you can make a ball! But they are also fun in the half-dome.

The White Honeycomb Embellishment is ready for tinting if you need to. I used the Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill (119672) with one of the Aqua Painters (103954) to color the one I used in the photo. Dilute the ink and pick it up with the brush tip, then coat the Honeycomb. I recommend opening the Honeycomb and securing it to a Silicone Craft Sheet (127853) while you tint. This way you won’t have soggy paper stuck to your Honeycomb and will have just as much adhesive on the half-dome as you need. Let the Embellishment dry thoroughly.

You can also tint your Embellishment with a Stampin’ Write Marker. Take the color of your choice and coat the edge of the Embellishment while it’s closed. Soak it in the color a bit so it shows up well. You can do this with all three colors for two-tone effects.

You can mail cards with the Honeycomb Embellishment on them two ways:

  1. Smoosh the open half-dome with a stamp block or set case. This lets you control the smoosh, rather than having the Post Office do it.
  2. Attach the Embellishment to the card with only one side adhered. You can write “remove liner and adhere” on the closed side. The card will mail flat and your recipient will have a nice, puffy Honeycomb.

I used the Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set (141288-w; 141291-c) to illustrate Honeycomb Embellishments because the set is adorable. This set is only available with a $50 product order during Sale-A-Bration (1/5 to 3/31/2016). However, it’s my favorite in the whole SAB Brochure, so I just had to share it with you!
