Today, I’m sharing a card showing off the new Botanical Stencil! I used this stencil simply to create a thinking of you card, but WOW, you could go to town with this stencil because there are A LOT of images to use!!
I combined this stencil with the new Feel Better Sampler sentiment stamp set and the previously released Geo Frame die.
For making this project, I placed the die cut negative down to use as a mask before I blended on ink with my favorite blender brushes. Then I stencil on these sweet leafy greens before adding the sentiment and some paint splats.  I hope the end result evokes comfort. ❤

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. 🙂

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! 🙂


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! 🙂

I didn’t even use my FAVORITE Confetti Bits: Bokeh Lights ❤ What?! haaaa! 🙂

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

Next up on the hop is: Galina Filippenko … head over HERE where the fun is sure to continue on her blog!

You want to be sure to hit all the stops, so again, you can start the hop HERE. There is a Honey Bee Stamps gift card giveaway of $30 each day of the hop! So comment along the hop for your chance to win!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Hopping!

Take care–Jill 🙂

Today, I’m sharing a card showing off the new Stackers Stencil! You can make a rainbow!!! As you can see here, because I essentially make four little ones!! 🙂 This stencil is FULL of things to stencil on your projects–so so fun! 🙂
I used the previously release Monster Dies and Flaunters Dies to complete this card with the fun background!  🙂
For making this project, I just masked off the parts of the stencil I didn’t want to ink and blended on inks with my favorite blender brushes. I use post-it notes generally to just mask things off, quick and easy!
I feel like I have barely scratched the surface with this stencil!! 🙂 I hope to be back again soon to show more projects with it! 🙂
