Sending Smiles!

Happy Weekend! Have you seen the new release over at Honey Bee Stamps?!!! So much love is in the air over there, so be sure to check out the new goodies!

Today, I had to share a card using the cute little bee, Bee Mine, that is FREE with a $50 or more purchase! Eeep! ๐Ÿ™‚ I paired him with this sentiment from the new Blown Away stamp set (coordinating dies for Blown Away HERE) and new paper pad, Sweet on You. The Honey Bee Paper pads are always FULL of awesome patterns and divine colors!

I colored the sweet bee with Copics before die cutting him out. I die cut the Sweet on You paper with the Scallop A2 dies I added some stitching details to the PP. After that, I added the cute Bee with some foam adhesive. I added some Bokeh Lights Confetti  and some gems from the Holiday Traditions set.

I think it turned out full of smiles to send in the mail! Oh so cute!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank You!

Hope you had a Very Merry Christmas! I think we are finally starting to come out from the fog, but goodness, I am wiped out! ha!

But in crafty news, I’m here today to share some more fun from Honey Bee Stamps. Now is the time to send all those Thank You notes and this one fits the bill!

For this card, I used Honey Bee’s Stacking Pines, Northern Star Coverplate, Scallop A2, Rainbow Wishes and Gingerbread House Add On. I die cut everything and stamped the sentiment. I then assembled the card and added the chunky glitter on as the very last thing. Giving the glitter a little pat will help keep it all attached to the card. (Another tip: Rub down all the elements with an anti-static something to keep the glitter where you want it vs. all over the card.)

I wanted a card that would be easy to make a handful of, but a step above a mass producing design. This card has a little extra something, but it doesn’t take that long to make… which means, I can make a few without wondering where several hours went! ha! ๐Ÿ™‚

Santa’s Delivery!

Hope you have started your weekend off swimmingly! I’m here today to share some more fun from ย Honey Bee Stamps. I’m sharing a gift card holder! I don’t know about you, but I need to make a bunch of these. And truthfully, they are QUICK to make with Honey Bee’s Stocking Gift Card Holder HERE.

You just die cut all the pieces once and the stocking piece twice (for front and back) and then assemble. You then slide the gift card right in! Too fun and super easy!

The sentiment is from the set Santa Express HERE (such fantastically fun sentiments for gift tags, etc.) and the patterned paper ( โค !) is from Holiday Traditions HERE 6 x 6 pad.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

This is just a fun way to add a little something special to those gift card gifts!

I added some stitching to give it a little more handmade touch and boom, done! ๐Ÿ™‚
