Gnome Sweet Gnome

Good Morning you have started your weekend off well! Our coffee maker just went bust after years of being on the fritz, so I’m definitely not awake! ha! πŸ™‚ I’m here today to share some more fun from Β Honey Bee Stamps. This little gnome is from the Gnome Place Like Home stamp set (and Dies HERE.)

I colored him with Copic markersΒ  and then created this snowy background with Distress Inks and the fantastic Snow Cover Plate ( ❀ !) and the Scallop A2 dies. I thought it would be fun to create a puntastic sentiment using the Home, Sweet Home die set along with the “gnome” word die cut from the Gnome Place Like Home Honey Cuts. I finished it all off with some stitching and some Bokeh Lights Confetti. Eeek so fun for the holidays!

I think it turned out fun and definitely different that where I started in my mind. Love when that happens!

I am Grateful

Hope you have started your weekend off well! I’m here to share some more fun from  Honey Bee Stamps. Today, I am sharing a wintry card because we received several inches of snow here already this week. This is HIGHLY abnormal, but here we are! So I thought it fitting to make snowflakes. πŸ™‚

These snowflakes are from the Layering Snowflakes. They are intended to layer up and create fun dimensional snowflakes, but I thought it would be great to show them on their own too, because they work wonderfully this way! πŸ™‚ This sweet sentiment is from THIS stamp set called Grateful Heart. (Coordinating dies for this set are HERE.) I tend to really only send handmade holiday thank you cards, so I like to stock up my stash on these! ❀

I also used the dies called Scallop Square Gift Tags and these are FAB!! I am really looking forward to making some holiday tags this month! πŸ™‚

The card panel is cut out with the essential Scallop A2 Card Frames. These are a staple in my card making arsenal!

I added lots of score lines, some stitching and twine to polish off this sweet card.

Joy!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! I’m here to share a card using amazing new products from Β Honey Bee Stamps. These cover plates are AMAZING!! I just ❀ them! They are called Winter Prism Cover Plates. There are three layers– check them out HERE.

I also used the new Joy Noel Wreath Honey Cuts . This is a fun die set with the letters and the wreath option. I thought it would be fun to cut it out of felt and then stitch it.

On top of this amazing cover plate stack, it doesn’t need much! But naturally, I used Confetti Bits: Bokeh Lights! πŸ™‚

Honey Bee Stamps: Season to Sparkle Hop!

Hello and welcome to my stop on the Season to Sparkle Honey Bee Stamps Blog Hop day! It’s a day of fun over at Honey Bee Stamps. If you haven’t seen all the new release goodies, you absolutely should see all the NEW Season to Sparkle HERE right now.

If you are here at my stop, and want to start from the beginning, head over to the Honey Bee Stamps blog HERE to start there. πŸ™‚

First up, I am sharing the Merry Lights stamp set and the coordinating die, Merry Lights Honey Cuts HERE.

I keep saying it, but I love holiday lights!! So this is right up my alley! The best little trick is that there are little tiny stamps to fill in the light bulbs quickly from your ink pads. No need to pull out a bunch of markers! Stamp! Done! I die cut the Scalloped A2 Card Frames and then die cut it again to get it more to the size I needed. I scored the panel and added some stitching. Then, I added a little sparkle with some old school Stickles to polish it all off.

I think it turned out pretty festive in the end! πŸ™‚


Next up, I have this little number using Honey Bee Stamps new Home Sweet Home HERE. There is also a coordinating die HERE called Home Sweet Home Honey Cuts.

How sweet is this? I love the homey sweet feel with the new patterned paper too–Holiday Traditions. You can find that one HERE. The new paper pads are soooooo great! πŸ™‚

I didn’t even use my FAVORITE Confetti Bits: Bokeh Lights ❀ What?! haaaa! πŸ™‚

STAMPtember with Honey Bee Stamps!

Fun news! Honey Bee Stamps has a beautiful collaboration with Simon Says Stamp for STAMPtember!! You can find this lovely set called Fall Beauty HERE.

The main feature stamp can hold the card on it’s own, so it doesn’t take much to make it shine. I think there are going to be some awesome examples of this lovely colored!

I kept things simple, because I wanted to make a card set.

I fussy cut out the edge of the stamp after white heat embossing it. I love when detailed stamps are kept simple–the stamp does all the work!

Fall Colors: Perfect!

These sweet sentiments make it easy to complete the simple cards!

Lastly, because I love Fall, I had to make a fall card to use this sentiment. For this I squished a bunch of Distress Inks to create the mish mash of color.

I white heat embossed the one leaf repeatedly and added some splats and stitching to polish it all off.

Autumn changing is beautiful! My FAVORITE! πŸ™‚

Again, here is the full set, Fall Beauty, so you can see all the lovely!

Thanks for Simon Says Stamp for having me along again to celebrate this STAMPtember collaboration with Honey Bee Stamps! ❀

One additional little note: Honey Bee Stamps created a special stamp set to support relief efforts of Hurricane Dorian. You can see the set and pre-order that HERE. It’s called Hope Anchors the Soul.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your STAMPtember!

Honey Bee Stamps: Autumn Blesssings Hop!

Happy Friday and Happy Autumn Blessings Honey Bee Stamps Blog Hop day! I am very excited to be joining the HB team and all the creative people over at Honey Bee Stamps and look forward to sharing new projects with you every month. If you haven’t seen all the new release goodies, you absolutely should jet over HERE right now. There are soooooo many fun and different new things available β™₯️ !! πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to use all the thingsΒ  and whip up some more cards! Sleeping and working really cuts into our cardmaking time, doesn’t it? Ha!

This little camper, the Camp Trailer Card, is the most adorable little camper EVER! πŸ™‚ And I used all the Honey Bee Bees Knees papers that made it that much more adorable! Eeeeeep! πŸ™‚

This sweet sentiment is from the new Wild and Free stamp set. There are coordinating dies HERE too.

I am going to give this to my husband for our Anniversary next month. ❀ I just think it is the sweetest!! πŸ™‚ The die cuts the whole camper, and it will fit on an A2 horizontal card. I just thought this was a fun layout. Though I will fully admit, it was slightly painful to trim the camper off.Β  Gulp!


Next up, I have this colorful little number.

This is made with the new set “Brilliant Day” and the coordinating dies HERE. I also used more of the Bees Knees patterned paper pad from before. This pad of paper is going to be gone before I know it!! I am telling you, I have never used more patterned paper than in this post, in all of 2019 combined! Ha!

OH and my FAVORITE Confetti Bits are HERE!! Bokeh Lights ❀

I colored in these crayons with Copic Markers.Β  I think it turned out fun and oh so very perfect for our son! πŸ™‚
