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

Hello –Here today to share some extra special  Honey Bee Stamps 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 ❤ ! This is such a great set with FANTASTIC sentiments that I can definitely use over and over and over! 🙂 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! 🙂 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. 🙂 And if I had more time, I’m pretty sure I’d have made a card using every one of them! 🙂

On with the cards already, yes?! 🙂

I used all the solid hearts in the sets for both of these cards. I am a big fan of these hearts! 🙂

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! 🙂

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

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!  🙂

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

Buzzing by to say…

Hello –Happy Weekend! Thought I’d pop in and share a cutie new card I made using  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 the  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! 🙂 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 ❤

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

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have some fun making cards with Honey Bee Stamps this weekend too!

Take care–Jill 🙂

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. 🙂

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! 🙂

This is just the coolest new die!! 🙂

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. 😉

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

This card is fun to send for any day, don’t you think? 🙂
