Home with Honey Bee!

Have you seen the NEW RELEASE fromย Honey Bee Stamps! All ready for the Holidays and such fun to create holiday cards with! You can check out the whole Holiday Cheer Release HERE!! ๐Ÿ™‚

For this card I used the new Mistletoe Slimline Cover Plate, Slimline Mistletoe Berries, Home stamp set, and Home Honey Cuts,ย 

I enjoy the way it came together. I was hoping the Mistletoe Slimline Cover Plate die would work for a smaller card and it absolutely does! ๐Ÿ™‚

I stenciled the berries on with some reddish pink and then put some stickles sparkle over top. I think this card is so fitting for the 2020 Holidays. โค

Hang In There!

Today, I am back to share some more cuteness from the Autumn Afternoonย release fromย Honey Bee Stamps! These little squirrels! Gah!

The cutie squirrels and the sentiment are from theย  Nuts about You set with coordinating dies HERE. The little fence, grass and clouds areย  from the die set Horizon Slimline Borders. The itty bitty leaves are from the die set aptly named Itty Bitty Leaves. And all the patterned paper is from the pad called Harvest Festival. I don’t have many sheet of it left and that is making me nervous. ha! ๐Ÿ™‚ Lastly, of course I used theย A2 Scallop dies .I can’t seem to NOT use those. ๐Ÿ™‚

I colored the squirrels with Copic Markers. I added some ink to the clouds to give a little oomph to the layers of those. But overall, I let the patterned paper do the work for me. The clouds are ideal and the fence is so sweet!

These cutie squirrels are too fun and I love the autumn feel of this card. ๐Ÿ™‚

This Honey Bee Stamps die is calledย Lovely Layers: Maple Leaf Stand Alone Diesย and I paired it with a sentiment from the new Hello Fall set and of course, used an ol’ fave, the A2 Scallop dies . ๐Ÿ™‚

STAMPtember with Honey Bee!

I am joining the fun over at Simon Says Stamp for the Honey Bee Exclusive Release for STAMPtember!! ๐Ÿ™‚

You can pop over to the Simon Says Stamp Blog HERE to see more about this stamp set releasingย  from Simon Says Stamp/ Honey Bee Stamps NOW! ๐Ÿ™‚ This stamp set is called On My Mind and it has a coordinating die you can order as part of the combo if you’d like.

This set is a sweet wreath perfect for Autumn or really any time, depending on the colors you choose to use. I decided to take a slightly alternative route and create a watercolor card using the floral part of the wreath for a border around.

I laid down a few layers of watercolor and then white heat embossed over the top. I think if I did it again, I’d let up a little to keep more of the yellows, but you just never know with watercolor, do you?ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Be sure to check out all the goodness over at Simon Says Stamp and find all the goodies there! The Honey Bee Stamps/SSS set On My Mind HERE. If you are thinking of ordering it, don’t delay!

There are a limited amount of these On My Mind stamp sets and dies available and if sometimes if you wait a wee bit too long (ask me how I know!) …POOF! They are gone! ๐Ÿ™‚ The exclusive collaborations are selling out in record time this year, so act fast if you can.

Thanks to Simon Says Stamp for having me along to join in the ย STAMPtember Fun with Honey Bee!! Be sure to check it all out!ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care–Jill

Hero Arts and Honey Bee Stamps! (+Giveaway!)

Hello –Here today to share some extra special ย Honey Bee Stampsย fun for their collaboration with Hero Arts!!! I always credit Hero Arts for my first dives into stamping– so anything HA is always a delight for me…. then combine it with Honey Bee and โค ! This is such a great set with FANTASTIC sentiments that I can definitely use over and over and over! ๐Ÿ™‚ The set is called You are Amazing and you can find it HERE!

Hopefully, you have arrived here from Jenny Hall’s Blog HERE. If not, but sure to hop back there! ๐Ÿ™‚ You can also start from the beginning at Hero Arts HERE and Honey Bee Stamps HERE.

I couldn’t decide which sentiments to use, so finally I just picked a couple and ran with it! I could use all of them, all at once truthfully. ๐Ÿ™‚ And if I had more time, I’m pretty sure I’d have made a card using every one of them! ๐Ÿ™‚

On with the cards already, yes?! ๐Ÿ™‚

I used all the solid hearts in the sets for both of these cards. I am a big fan of these hearts! ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought it would be fun to stamp dark to light, bottom up. I think they both turned out pretty fun in the end.

I can’t pick a favorite though, of course! ๐Ÿ™‚

I finished off these cards with some paint splats, scoring and a little stitching. โค

I love these kinds of cards! I definitely need them often and they are flat, but oh so fun for mailing!


This is just two sentiments of soooo many in the set! Along with lots of sweet hearts!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

There is also a GIVEAWAY –two $50 gift cards –one for Honey Bee Stamps and one for Hero Arts!ย  How fun is that?!

Here’s the full scoop: We will give away TWO $50 shopping sprees during this hop – one to the Hero Arts store, and one to Honey Bee Stamps!

Honey Bee Stamps: New Release

Hello –Happy Weekend! There is a new release over at Honey Bee Stamps!!! And I thought I would make a card that was full of tropical goodness. I don’t know about you, but I could live in this card about now! ๐Ÿ™‚

This new Honey Bee Stamps set is called Paradise Blooms (and you can find it HERE with the Paradise Blooms coordinating dies HERE) and I just stamped right over a Distress Oxide blended panel. The size of these images is pretty awesome and they would be great to add coloring to too!

Anyone else up for living in this card for awhile? ha! ๐Ÿ™‚

I wanted to keep this card flat because I intended to mail it out this week. The USPS and I have been at odds with mailing lately. Ha! So FLAT was the goal! ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out all the latest over at the Honey Bee Stamps blog HERE. ๐Ÿ™‚

Once again, here are the Honey Bee Stamps products I used with links and links to the Distress Oxide pads Honey Bee has available:

Hi!

Hello –Happy Saturday! I’m here today to share a sweet card I made using  Honey Bee Stamps!!! You can find lots of stamps and goodies from Honey Bee HERE!

For this card, I used Honey Bee’s cute critters from the Happy BeeDay set (and the coordinating Happy BeeDay Dies HERE). I colored them with Copic Markers and die cut everything out.

I made my own stencil using the Grass Border die and created a lovey background with the Fluttering Hearts Stencil (set of 2!). The simple sentiment I used is from the Friend stamp set. So cute and so simple!

Eeeeep! I just had to use this little squirrel. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s the Honey Bee Stamps goodies I used with links:
