Honey Bee Stamps Cheerful Love Blog Hop



Hi Crafty Friends, and welcome to my Blog!!!
Thank you for hopping on over to the last stop for today's Honey Bee Cheerful Love Blog Hop.

The Honey Bee Stamps Cheerful Love Release is now available in the store. To celebrate the new release, we are having a two day blog hop called Cheerful Love. So please hop along with us both days to be inspired! 

For my first card, I used two new sets. 


I thought it would be super cute to create and interactive scene card for Penny the Platypus' Graduation. To begin I colored Penny and her accessories with Prismacolor pencils. Once the coloring and cutting was done, I began to build the shaker. To create the shaker window I used the two largest Double Stitched Frames Dies. Next, I wanted to create the illusion of  the moving graduation cap, so I taped a very fine clear thread to the back of the cap then glued the ends to the sides of the rectangle frame. I then sandwiched the thread between the frame and the acetate. Before attaching the thread, I made sure I left enough slack for the up and down movement. In this case I wanted it to appear like it was sitting on her head and I also wanted to make sure I left it long enough so that when the hat moved up it would cover up the HATS OFF sentiment. The shaker mix consists of Clear Iridescent Sequins and Unicorn Rhinestones.

As you can see here in the image below the HAT is OFF! and the sentiment is covered up.
I had fun with this design.


To the inside of the card I mixed a few of the Congrats Grad sentiments to stamp my message.


Watch a short clip of Penny's hat here in action!



For my next card,  I wanted to continue playing with my Prismacolor pencils. I think I'm hooked on coloring with pencils now... btw, this was the second card I had ever made using Prismacolors and the first time was the previous Graduation card! I can't believe how fun it is to color with them!

Anyways, onto the card. 
For my second card,  I used the new Feelin' Foxy and the Foxy Sentiments Stamp sets.
I also used the Country Blooms and the tree stencil from the Outdoor Scenes Builder Set.

I LOVE how this scene turned out. 
For this card I chose to make it for a lady, so in order to make the fox look more feminine I added a few lashes and gave her some blushed cheeks.


Of course I had complete the foxy themed birthday message, so to coordinate it I stamped "my Foxy Friend" on the inside. I just love how you can build your own messages with the Honey Bee sentiment stamps!


I have to say this Foxy Friend Birthday card was my favorite card to create, so I chose it to film today's process video. I wish I had time to do a video for all three cards but unfortunately I didn't have the time. If you'd like to watch a newbie like me color and create this card, check out my video.

And finally, here is my third and final card.

 A clean and simple, quick shaker card using the new Ridiculously Happy stamp set. Again here I used a couple of the Double Stitched Frames Dies to create the window/top panel. Then I stamped my sentiment using Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink and heat set it with a clear embossing powder. The little bees I used come from the Busy Bees Stamp Set. I stamped them onto the card base and I used Spectrum Noir markers to color them in. Before attaching the window/top panel, I filled the little window area with some Little Love heart Sequins.



To finish this card off, I added this fun message on the inside.
I think this would make a great card for a friend or loved one!


I hope you were inspired by my card creations today using these amazing new Honey Bee sets.

Baby Crib Box Card for Olive


Hello friends!

Today I have this adorable Baby Crib Box Card to share with you that I made for some friends of ours to celebrate little Olive's arrival. This card comes from SVG Cuts Tiny Miracle SVG Kit. Felt like forever since I last used my Silhouette Cameo to create something and I think I was really missing it!

Well whatcha think!?
CUTENESS, right!!!
I hope her parents will love it too 😍

Baby Crib Box Card for Olive from SVG Cuts Tiny Miracle SVG Kit

I can't believe I hadn't used this file sooner. It makes the best baby card!

Like I mentioned earlier this file comes from the Tiny Miracle SVG Kit, I did however change it up a little by adding the baby's name to the front rather than using the baby blocks that the file comes with. To personalize the card, I used some metal letter dies from MFT and did some partial die cutting. I also used the Darling Baby Stamp and Die set from Simon Says Stamp to finish the back panel of the card. I guess I did sacrifice the writing space on the back to use the cute die, but I did just attach a little love note to the card 😉

As you can see the card folds flat for mailing.

Biker Bunnies Love Their Chicks - Slider Card - Ink On 3


Hello Friends!

Back again today with a "Cool" Easter Card, perfect for the little rebel in your life!

This card features stamps from Ink On 3's Biker Bunnies and Lil Chicks, and of course I just had to make it interactive!
Biker Bunnies Love Their Chicks - Slider Card - Ink On 3
As you can see the little Biker Bunny looks like he pops a wheelie as he drives by to impress all the "Chicks" lol! 😆


Here is how I created this card...

  •  Colored all the images using Zig Clean Color Brushes, then cut them out. 
  •  Used distress oxide inks to blend out the colors for my background. 
  • Colored the bottom of another piece of cardstock grey, as you will see it once the slider channel is cut out. 
  • For the sky I used a cloud stencil
  • Used a couple of channel dies to create the track for the motorcycle. I began with the straight die, then used the curved die. Make sure you align the track really well before you run it through the die machine so that the track is smooth. 
  • Stamp out the sentiments.
  • Assemble the front card panels. I popped up the front panel with 2 layers of foam tape. 
  • I created 2 slider mechanisms by sandwiching a couple of spin disks between a couple of small circle dies.
  • Inserted spin mechanisms into the track and attached the Motorcycle to them. (I did not attach to the front wheel of the motorcycle to the spin disk as then it won't be able to curve up the channel).
  • Glue down your bunnies and chicks. To some of the chicks I popped them up with foam tape and then to the ones that looked like they were flying I added some motion lines with a marker.
  • Attach the finished panel to the card base.
  • Finish by adding some Wink of Stella and glossy accents to the Bike and the Bunnies.
