BEEcause of You...

Happy Friday blog friends... I have been neglecting my blog. I posted a couple times on my Instagram page and did not do a blog post... I hope you follow me also on Instagram. You can find my profile HERE.  

Today I am sharing a card that I created using...

Honey Bee Stamps

  • Busy Bees stamp set
  • BaBees stamp/die set
  • Hi Honey stamp set
Altenew

  • Grid Cover die

How fun to color bees... right? I love watching the bees pollinate my flowers but when they fly by me, I kind of freak out. LOL

I started with die cutting the Grid Cover die on white card-stock. I then cut strips of colored card-stock for the background. I layered up the colors and then adhered it to my card base. 

I then cut a strip for the sentiment, I just cut it at an angle. I stamped the sentiment and added it to my card using Bearly Arts Precision Glue. 

Next I stamped out all these cute bees and colored using Copic Sketch markers. I had the coordinating dies for the larger bees but the smaller ones I had to fussy cut them. I added a little white gel pen here and there. This helps highlight the image. I added the images using foam adhesives for a little dimension. 

That is it.....

Who doesn't love a card full of cute bees? This card was fun to create and my husband really liked it. 

Have a wonderful weekend.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Let's Celebrate...

Happy Tuesday blog friends... today I am on the Ink Blog Shop blog here and I am getting crafty with...

I was in a colorful mood… which means the more color the better. I think it just makes for a happy card and with these fun Decorative Borders you can go wild with color.


I started with cutting my card base on kraft card-stock. I always fold my cards using a bone folder so I get a clean straight fold. This card is measured at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

Using my Misti I stamped this border from the Decorative Borders directly onto my card base. I stamped in different colors for each row. I say use your favorite inks to stamp with.

I die cut a couple of banners and stamped these fun sentiments from the Sentiment Label Blocks. This stamp set is full of sentiments that you can mix and match, to create a fun message on your card.

The YOU sentiment is from the Tiny Bubbles. I stamped the cloud image and then the YOU sentiment in the center using a fun ink color. I fussy cut around the cloud.

Now time to add those sentiments to the center of your card. I used foam tape, so the sentiment had a little dimension.

Lots of stamping but totally simple. Got to love color...

That is all for today.
Thank you for stopping by.

May You Coffee Be.....


Happy Sunday blog friends... today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE and I am getting crafty with...

Pink & Main supplies used...

I started with die cutting all my pieces to create this background. I die cut on the Year Round Dots & Strips designer paper the Stitched Arches and Dotted Cover dies. From the Rainbow dies I die cut the sun on some misc. yellow card-stock and lastly I die cut one of the Layered Rectangles A2 dies on a piece of white card-stock.

Next I stamped out this sweet image and colored it using Copic Sketch markers, then die cutting using the coordinating dies.

On the die cut rectangle I stamped one of the sentiments from the Mom Life stamp set.

Now time to adhered all these pieces to my card base. I adhered using Pink & Main EZ Squeeze Craft Glue and foam tape. Always need a little dimension.

Finishing up with a little shine using the Cool Jellies Gems. I adhered them with the Pink & Main EZ Squeeze Craft Glue.

Grateful Notes...


YAY! today I am on the ScrapbookPal blog HERE and I am getting crafty with Concord & 9th and PinkFresh Studio..

Supplies used...

Lots of crafty goodness on two cards... so easy and fun to create.. let's get started.


Create 2 cards from card-stock (A2) using white and kraft card-stock. I die cut the Pinkfresh Studio: Hearts and Stars Coverplate die on kraft and red card-stock. Adhered the red background to the kraft card base and the kraft background to the white card base using Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue. I added the glue along the edges of the die cut and pressed firmly until I felt it was solid. I added the glue along the edges of the die cut and pressed firmly until I felt it was solid.

I then stamped out the Grateful Blooms stamp set wreath using my Misti and inked up using Catherine Pooler Polished and Skylight from the Zen Garden Spa Collection (mini inks). Then using the coordinating die, I die cut around the stamped image and set aside.

I stamped out the sentiments on kraft card-stock and die cut using the coordinating dies.

Now it is time to piece all the cards together. With both of the cards I used 3L Scrapbook Adhesives Crafty Foam Tape white. This gives the card dimension. I used the 3L Scrapbook Adhesives Crafty Foam Tape white on both of the wreaths and the sentiments.

Finishing up with added a little bling with Hero Arts Clear Enamel Dots.

Two simple cards using the same sets. You can change the colors up to be super happy or mild... depending on your mood and what colors you love to create with. Go wild with your imagination.

It is always a good day when we celebrate crafty goodness. Today I am sharing a card that I created using...

It is always fun creating with rainbows. I started with stamping the Taylored Expressions: Chasing Rainbows Cling background stamp and filled in the color using the clear set included in this set. The inks are from Catherine Pooler's Date Night collection. Nothing like lots of color on one card.... right?

I then stamped this cute Taylored Expressions: Big Grumpy Cat and colored using Copic sketch markers. I die cut using the coordinating die. I brightened the Grumpy Cat with this fun sentiment that is included in the Taylored Expressions: Chasing Rainbows cling/clear combo set. I added a little white gel pen here and there. 

Before adding the Grumpy Cat to my card I die cut a vellum circle and used that behind the image. This really makes the image pop, plus I added it using foam adhesives. Lots of dimension on this card. 

Because this is a fun blog hop....
