Some"Bunny" Needs More Wine Card ft. Honey Bee Stamps


 Hello friends!
Today's post is for all the wine lovers out there.... funny enough, I have to share with you all a little SECRET...  I have NEVER had wine, not because of religious reasons or anything like that, I'm Portuguese after all and grew up in a family of winemakers and wine lovers. But, for whatever reason, something about it makes my stomach turn 😝

Recently some of our friends hit the not so scary, but only seems that way 40 year old Milestone. Let me tell you the 40's are awesome, but a little wine for those that enjoy it won't hurt!

So only to my cards. This first one I made for our friend Chad. For his card, I went with a blue palette to keep things simple and easy to coordinate.

Here is a closer look at all the little details.
I used a lot of stamps from a variety of Honey Bee sets to create the drunk little birthday bunny. See links below this post for all the supplies.

Initially I hadn't planned on filming the process for this card but, I loved how this first card turned out so much that I had to replicate it for a second card. For my next card I went with a pink palette, obviously a little more girly for my friend Anna who also turned 40. The only difference on this card was that I added a couple of gifts to the scene.

Here is another closer look at this card. I love how the glossy accents give the wine bottles such a realistic appearance.

To the inside of the card, I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Swimming by Stamp set.

I Can Explain... Funny/Apology Card ft. Honey Bee Stamps


 Hello friends!

Today I have a super cute card to share with you all that funny enough was inspired by real life 😜 I wish I could tell you that my kids get along and play well together, but in reality they don't. I think they love annoying each other and it sometimes drives me nuts😒

Anyways, I thought it would be cute to represent them in today's card. Since my son is the oldest, I thought it would be fun to make it look like he was the blue bunny, sitting (more like squashing) his little sister, the pink bunny! Thankfully, they are a little older now so it doesn't actually get physical, but when they were little I would find them like this all the time, lol!

I Can Explain... Funny/Apology Card ft. Honey Bee Stamps

To create the card, I began by stamping the bunny from the Blah Humbunny stamp set and then masking it. Then I stamped the bunny from Blah Bunny set underneath the first bunny. Next, I added my sentiment and heat embossed it. Then added the little bee in the top right corner and colored in my Spring scene. I began by adding some clouds to the sky using broken China distress oxide ink and using cloud stencil from the Outdoor Scene Builder stencil set. Next, I colored my images in using tombow dual brush markers. Once my coloring was complete I did some partial die cutting around the blue bunny to make it look like he was popped out and leaning forward on top of the bottom bunny. Finally, I die cut the front panel using the large rectangle double stitched frame and added foam tape to pop it off the card front.

I Can Explain... Funny/Apology Card ft. Honey Bee Stamps

To my inside I had to add my explanation...
and like all kids, (well mine anyways) there is always and excuse, haha.

So, of course the "Bee" did it! 
Sure they did!? 😇

I Can Explain... Funny/Apology Card ft. Honey Bee Stamps

Hope this humorous I Can Explain... Apology Card inspired you today. Sorry's are never easy.
I think a card like this would also make a great apology card for a friend, sibling or even a parent!

Sometimes you just gotta laugh at life :)
