Now let’s get on to my project.  For my card today, I am showcasing the Blah Humbunny stamp set and coordinating dies by Honey Bee, the All That Glitters stamp set by Picket Fence Studios, the stitched rectangle dies by Kat Scrappiness, and a bunch of other supplies available at the shop.


I started by stamping the background stamp by the Picket Fence Studios called All That Glitters onto my Neenah Solar Classic Crest 100 lb. card stock using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform.   I also stamped the images from the Blah Humbunny stamp set and colored my images in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.


I adhered the presents using my Nuvo liquid adhesive onto my stamped background, and also adhered the bunny with foam adhesives.   To finish my design, I used my white gel pen to add some details to the images and also added some crystal jewels on my background.



I also added the eyelashes to my cute little bunny using my 0.3 Copic multi-liner pen.  Here’s a little close-up:



I used my Versafine Onyx Black ink to stamp the sentiment on my card.   Here’s another look:

Honey Bee Stamps – Message in a Bottle


I am so psyched to share with you today’s project because this week, Honey Bee Stamps is releasing the new Under the Sea stamps, dies and embellishments.  Wait ’til you “sea” the new products that are going to be featured this week.  Today is the first day and I am showcasing the super cute “Message in a Bottle” Stamp set.

I have to apologize that I will not be able to participate in the blog hop on Friday, July 14th.  I had to travel for a family emergency concerning my father-in-law and will not be available for the month of July.  Please check out the design team’s projects this week for more inspiration.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored the images in with my Copic markers.  I did not have the coordinating dies just yet for this set and since I wanted to make a shaker tag, I decided to use my Exacto knife to cut out the middle portion of the bottle, and then covered both sides with acetate sheet.



I used a tag die from my stash to die-cut the tags.  I tore the card stock and sponged it with my distress ink to create the look of sand.  I adhered the shaker element using my Xyron mega tape runner and foam tape.  To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment, added the sun, and the cloud.  Here is what it looks like:


Here’s another look:


You are all going to absolutely love the new stamp sets and dies for the July release.  The stamps, dies and embellishments will be available for purchase on Friday, July 14th.  Please stay tuned for more project inspiration from the design team this week.  Have an amazing day!

You Are Bee-youtiful and Kind

Hello my crafty peeps! It’s Maria here and I am back with you today to share this cheerful see-through card that I have made, showcasing the Bee Hive Card Honey Cuts, Honey Bee Hive Stencil and Mask, the Bee-You-Tiful sentiments with the Build-A-Bee stamp set and Build-A-Bee Honey Cuts.

I wanted to challenge myself and create a unique card.  I started out by stamping my images on Bristol smooth card stock with my memento tuxedo black ink and colored the images in with my Copic markers. I also added some glitter to the wings using my Spectrum Noir clear brush marker.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.


I die-cut a piece of acetate sheet using the Bee-Hive Card Honey cuts die as my card base. I also die-cut a piece of white card stock with a yellow patterned paper to use for the inside of my card.


I used the stencil to add some definition to my yellow patterned paper with the fossilized Amber distress oxide ink. I adhered the white card stock behind the acetate and adhered the patterned paper inside my see-through card base. I stamped the sentiment for my card, and adhered my little bees on the front panel to finish my design.


Wouldn’t this card make someone’s day?  Here’s what it looks like when the card is closed.


Here’s another look when the flap is open.  I inserted the battery-operated tea light.



Here’s another simple card that I made. I used the Hexagon Layering Background Stencils and the A2 Double-Stitched Frames:


I hope I have inspired you today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Have a Bee-You-Tiful day!

Hello Card with Honey Bee Stamps

I am super excited to share with you my first project as a design team member for Honey Bee Stamps.  I am showcasing the Hello Gorgeous 6×8 stamp set and Hello Gorgeous Honey Cuts coordinating dies.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored the images in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the image with its coordinating die.


I cut another Neenah solar white card stock, measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 for my card front.  Using a sponge, I started applying color to the card stock with my worn lipstick distress ink, then adding and blending it with cracked pistachio.  Using my wet watercolor brush, I put some gold watercolor on my acrylic block and started splattering watercolor on the front of the card.


I used a die from my stash and adhered the “hello” script sentiment on my card panel.


I adhered the flowers I colored from the Hello Gorgeous stamp set and also added some Crystal Mix Dew Drops to finish my design.  Here is a close-up of the card:


I hope you like my card today and got inspired.  This stamp set is a must-have.


The supplies I used are listed and linked below in case you would like to purchase them.  Have an amazing week!
