Happy Birthday!

Hello –Happy Saturday! I’m here today to share a new card I made using ย Honey Bee Stamps!!! You can find the whole of the NEW RELEASE HERE.

For this card, I used Honey Bee’sย new Balloon Alphabet, Balloon Numbers, Candle Coverplate, and Buzz Stamp Set. What a fun way to celebrate a special birthday!

Personalizing cards made specially for the recipient is so much fun! Now my goal is to locate this card again when it’s my niece’s birthday! ๐Ÿ™‚ haaa!

I die cut the Candle Coverplate twice; once in white and I put the same die cut underneath in black to create some easy depth, giving the whole card front a little oomph.

I added a little gradient color to the letters and then coated them with Glossy Accents, leaving them to dry overnight. I also added a little gradient color to the card base, under the Candle Coverplate.
I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Buzz Stamp Set and white heat embossed it. I added the sentiment and Balloon Alphabet on with foam tape. To finish it off, I added a few Bokeh Lights Confetti Mix.

I hope Elise likes this card โค ! That is, if I can locate it to send later this summer. ๐Ÿ™‚

Buzzing by to say…

Hello –Happy Weekend! Thought I’d pop in and share a cutie new card I made using ย Honey Bee Stamps!!! You can find the whole of the NEW RELEASE HERE.

For this card, I used the new Unbeelievable Stamp and Coordinating die, Flower Centers Coverplate, Flower Petal Coverplate, and the new Buzz Stamp set. I also used a new favorite staple die set called A2 Thin Frames. Love these! (Previous, I used theย ย new Circle Thin Frames | Honey Cuts, and those are awesome too!)

Isn’t this new bee the cutest!!? awwwww.

I colored the bee with Copic Markers, and I have to say in this photo, the blending doesn’t look super. Fortunately in person, it looks a lot better! ๐Ÿ™‚ Pretty sure it was a dreary day when I photo’d this card. blergh. Anywho– I die cut all these elements and layered them up. I love them all in white. Delightful โค

Honey Bee Stamps: 5 UnBEElieveable Years!

Hello –Happy Weekend! There is a new release over at Honey Bee Stamps!!! It full of fun birthday goodies and SO much more! It’s full of Birthday because Honey Bee Stamps is celebrating their Fifth Birthday!! Happy Birthday to Honey Bee Stamps!!

Check out all the happenings and start on the hop by heading over to the Honey Bee Stamps blog HERE. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today, I am sharing the new Circle Thin Frames | Honey Cuts and the new Friend stamp set. This quickly turned into one super fun card that I cannot get enough of! The bonus is: I have all these circles cut now to make so many more! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is just the coolest new die!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I die cut this from all different colors of cardstock and then pieced them all together. There are 22 circles, if I am not mistaken. I know this because every time I cut a color, I would flip them over and number them from the inside out with a pencil on the backside. It does save time when you then want to piece them all together. I usually just wing it and grab them as I go, but this was a much speedier process. I think I only used 19 layers on this card though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I then added this sentiment from the Friend stamp set. I thought it would be fun to arrow it to the center. Something different! ๐Ÿ™‚


This card is fun to send for any day, don’t you think? ๐Ÿ™‚

Thinking of You

Yay for the weekend! I’m here to share a fun card using some sweetย Honey Bee Stamps!

I have been mailing a lot of cards and decided I needed some simple Thinking of You cards without a lot of bulk to replenish my stash and keep it going! So this little ditty fit the bill. Sweet, simple and fairly swift to make. ๐Ÿ™‚

This card uses Honey Bee Stamps: Heartfelt Stamp Set, Rainbow Wishes and Scallop A2 dies.

I stamped the hearts out with different colors of ink and then stamped the sentiment on a strip of cardstock to mount it, giving it all a little oomph. I didn’t want too much though. ๐Ÿ™‚

I die cut it out with the A2 Scallop frame and added some Bokeh Lights Confetti.

Hope you have some to make a few cards and mail them out this week too! ๐Ÿ™‚

You Are Forever in My Heart…

Hope you are having a good weekend–I’m sure it’s a bit different that usual, but it just means more time to craft! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m here to share a card using some goodies from ย Honey Bee Stamps.

I figured we could allllll use a rainbow about now, so I ran with that! ๐Ÿ™‚

I continue thinking differently about some of the products I have and this one came together swimmingly! This is the Stacking Pockets Honey Cuts….I just haven’t cut it apart yet, so I die cut it out of every color and voila, a rainbow! The best part: I can make EIGHT total cards out of these die cuts! So let’s see if if I get to that now or later.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

The sentiment is from the Heart stamp set and the Honey Cuts: Hearts.ย  I enjoy those little hearts and the layered word “heart”. So sweet! ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you have enjoyed my March of Honey Bee product re-purposing!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s so fun to stretch our supplies for new things.

Be sure to check out the Honey Bee Stamps blog HERE. ๐Ÿ™‚


Here’s a recap of all the new Honey Bee goodies I used and links to each below:

Hello Jen, my friend!

Hope you are having a fun weekend so far! I’m here to share a card using some of my favorite products from ย Honey Bee Stamps. These cover plates are AMAZING–and I want to use them on every card!! I just โค them! They are called Winter Prism Cover Plates. There are three layers– check them out HERE. I keep thinking I’ll cut them up in different colors, but then, here I am with pure white because they just look SO cool!

I also used theย  Joy Noel Wreath Honey Cuts. This is a fun die set with the letters and the wreath option. BUT when your friend’s name can be cut and spelled out, well, you do that!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I just hope this arrives in Jen’s mailbox before she sees the card online. shhhhh! ๐Ÿ™‚

The little “Hello” sentiment is from another HB set called Rainbow Wishes. On top of this amazing cover plate stack, I decided not to add anything else. But naturally, I did attempt to use some Confetti Bits: Bokeh Lights. Just decided against it because there is so much texture and geometry with everything already. ๐Ÿ™‚

I just so enjoy when you can take your holiday products and use them for non-holiday projects too! These cover plates are the definition of doing that and it just so happened I could spell my friend’s name with the holiday letters too– Score! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank You!

Happy Saturday! Today I am here to share a little Thank You card using Honey Bee Stamps. I always need these for school, so here’s another one! ๐Ÿ™‚

The winter light is so not fun for photography, so please excuse the winter blah. I had to forgo my usual set up because the at the time I took this, there was no sun. None. haaaa!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

This card features the ย Brilliant Dayย and the coordinating dies HERE. I also used the Scallop A2 because I pretty much always do, don’t I? ha!! ๐Ÿ™‚

This card also had the Stained Glass Coverplate, but you can’t really see it because I layered some vellum over top….so I figured the close up would help show the detail. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are links to all the Honey Bee products I used:
