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:

Thanks so much for stopping by today–have a good weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

Take care–Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

Blossoms & Butterflies NEW Release from SSS!

There is a New Release available over at Simon Says Stamp HERE. It’s called Blossoms & Butterflies! I used the new Mesh Stencil.

I love stencils because you can do so much free wheeling with them! ๐Ÿ™‚

For these cards, I also used SSS sentiments and dies: You’re Doing Awesome die, Love Messages, and Loving Heart. I blended a few different Distress Oxide inks on each card after masking off and area.

I call this photo series, my urban series–ha!! I made these late last night and had to photo on my commute to work this morning :). Figured I’d make hay! I did get some odd looks ๐Ÿ˜‰.

This card, I stitched in the white rows of the stencil. It’s very difficult to see in this photo though. I masked this sentiment to just use the first part–I thought this sentiment was fun and different to use for a fellow volunteer friend. โ™ฅ๏ธ

Thanks to Simon Says Stamp for having me along to celebrate their latest release! Can’t wait to see all the other new goodies!

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care–Jill

You Are Amazing!

Happy Wednesday to you! I thought I’d pop in with a quick post to share a fun Taylored Expressionsย card I made! This stencil and this blend makes me say oooooooo! ๐Ÿ™‚

This new Folk Art Tulip Stencil is a new favorite of mine–so enjoyable! And after I made this card, I was thinking, I should have made 6 or 7 of them! โค

The colors of this are so Spring like to me and the timing is perfect because I feel like we might finally be turning a page here. Fingers crossed. I also super love this sentiment. โค

I love how crisp this turned out in the end. Anytime masking is involved and doesn’t *leak*, I am always excited about that! ๐Ÿ™‚ I added some stitching to finish it all off.

You can find all my supplies and links to the Taylored Expressions Shop below:

Also, be sure to follow the fun over at the TE Blog! Have a great rest of the week! ๐Ÿ™‚
