Actually, we wanted to show you the versatility of the HoneyPOP Clear Sets and Honeycomb Paper Pads. Not only can they be used together for the obvious purpose (to make Honeycomb cards, of course), but they work great as individual products in their own right.
For example, each of the HoneyPOP Clear Sets contains a pattern stamp that is meant to be stamped onto the Honeycomb Paper Pads. You can see the balloon half-shape in this set:
Notice how the set contains a "regular" balloon, as well. So, if you wish, you can make a standard greeting card or other stamped project in addition to a HoneyPOP card!
Likewise, you already know the Honeycomb Paper Pads can be used to create HoneyPOP cards. But there are also lots of other fun projects you can make with them, and you'll see some wonderful examples today!
Each Inky designer received a HoneyPOP Clear Set and coordinating Honeycomb Paper Pad(s), along with my request to use either the stamp set two different ways or the stamp set in a HoneyPOP card and a "surprise" project using the Honeycomb Paper Pad(s) again.
To see what they made, please visit each DT member's blog and leave comments along the way. The more you comment, the better your chances are to win. (Limit one comment per blog, please.)
The blog hop starts today and ends on Sunday, October 2nd at midnight Central time. One person's name will be drawn at random to receive a fun Inky prize pack. We'll announce the results next Monday, so remember to stop back and see if you've won.

For this blog hop, I used 11024MC Birthday Elephant HoneyPOP Set. This set is pictured above, and it's one of the top sellers from our original HoneyPOP release.
Darcie's patterned paper in PAC1456 Lollipop Blossoms is such a cheery design, which I thought complemented the elephant nicely:
And, yep, I made sure to include a bright honeycomb balloon on the inside:
I added more dimension by using foam tape to adhere the birthday saying and elephant image, along with a bit of ultrafine glitter and flocking on the hat:
For my second project, I used the same stamp set to make a sticky note holder:
I figured that since an elephant never forgets, I might be able to channel the power of this little guy to help me remember things. I tied a
Thanks for hopping with us. I hope you found some creative inspiration today!
