Honey Bee Stamps Bee Bold Honey Release: Day Three - For Sweet Slushy Sake Shaped Gift Card and Stacked Hearts Thinking of You Card


Hello all!

Hope you are enjoying the Sneak Peaks for Honey Bee Stamps BEE BOLD Release! I'm loving all the new goodies and seeing all the amazing inspiration from the DT, it is just so awesome you need to stop by the HBS Blog to check it all out!

So today I have 3 Cards to share with you 😃 Three for day 3!

My first card uses the new Frappe Shake Dies. Even though this die will most likely be used for coffee geared projects, I instantly thought it reminded me of a Slurpee so that's where my mind went. Maybe it's the Summer heat and it's making me crave a Slushy.

I used distress Oxide inks to mix my Slurpee color flavors. I don't know about you all but I never get just one flavor.

Since I wanted the card to look like it was in a plastic cup, I used acetate to cover up the entire card base. Sometimes the die wouldn't cut through the acetate but then I just used a pair of scissors to finish the cut. I also used the Sweet Dies on the card front and to finish off the sentiment I added a couple of words from the new Shake it Off Stamp Set.

On the inside of the card, I added more sentiments from the Shake It Off set.

On the back, I attached the new Gift Card Pocket Die, and stamped the word Enjoy. I love how this fun card turned out and think it will make the best treat card for someone.

The next few cards feature the new Stacking Heart Dies. I ran the dies with a piece of red and pink cardstock and then glued the hearts alternating the red and pink together. This then gave me two card fronts to work with.

For this first heart themed card, I sliced the heart down the center and glued it to the sides of a gate fold card. I then used the new Thinking of You Dies to add the sentiment to the front of the heart and finished the front with the Rainbow Rhinestone Mix.

To keep the heart folded flat, I added a little mini velcro dot.

Here is another view of the Heart Shaped Gatefold card.

For this last card, I kept things super simple. Attached the heart to a top folding A2 card front, cut off the sides and then added the Thinking You Dies that I added some glossy accents to. I finished the card front with some sprinkles of Hug Me Candy Hearts.

Honey Bee Stamps Bee Bold Honey Release: Day Two - Happy Beeday Sunflower Card and I'm Sorry Sympathy Card


Hello again! 

Welcome to Day 2 of the Bee Bold Release from Honey Bee Stamps

Today's cards feature a bunch of new products from the new release as well some older sets.


I used the new Bee Bold Alpha Dies to die cut the letters for the word Happy and I also used the Beeday sentiment from the new Hi Honey Set for my card sentiments.


This adorable wobbling Bee and beautiful Sunflowers come from the Happy Fall Y'all stamp Set and coordinating dies.


Difficult to see here but I used some glimmer paste to create the clouds in the background using the Outdoor Scene Builder Stencils.


To the inside of the card, I used the new Bee Bold Numeric Dies and stamped out my sentiment by combining a few stamps from the Simple Sentiments set and the Lily the Lamb stamp set.


For my second card I made this clean and simple I Am So Sorry Sympathy card. 
For this background, I used the new Stacking Banner Dies to do some embossing on the panel.



Next, I die cut the sorry of the With Sympathy Dies and glued the two layers together and then added glossy accents to both layers.


I then stamped out my sentiments using phrases from the new coordinating With Sympathy stamp set in white and heat set it with white embossing powder. Added some hearts from the Forrest Friend Dies to embellish and finish the card front.

I also stamped the inside with more stamps from the same set. This stamp set is a great one to have in your stash for all those hard moments in life when you need a sympathy card.


Hope both these cards inspired you today. For more inspiration and to see more Day two Sneak Peeks stop by the HBS Blog.

Thank you for stopping by 😊
Don't forget to come back tomorrow for Day Three Sneaks... Happy Crafting 👋

Honey Bee Stamps Bee Bold Honey Release: Day One - Hi Honey Foxy Beeday Card

Hello my Friends!

Hope you are all doing well, I'm currently on vacation. I'm visiting family and vacationing in Portugal. So my blog posts for a little while will be short and sweet as my internet is very limited. Stay tuned though, cause this week is preview week for Honey Bee Stamps Bee Bold release and I made a ton of cards using lots of new products to inspire you.

So here is cute Foxy Beeday a card I made.
I used the new A7 Scallop Rectangle dies on this card.

The Hi Honey Sentiment Dies are also new for this release as well as the coordinating stamp set. I thought the Hi Honey worked well with this little foxy couple.

I also stamped a few more sentiments from the Hi Honey set to finish off the inside of the card. The cute little bee comes from the Bee Hive stamp set that is also new.

CZ Tabbed Sentiments Cards for Simon Says Stamp Friendly Frolic Release


Hey everyone!

Today I have a couple of cards to share with you featuring one of the new stamps set from the Simon Says Stamp Friendly Frolic Release.

For this first card, I used the CZ Design Tabbed Sentiments to create this rainbow inspired filing cabinet like card.

I didn't get the coordinating tab dies, so to create the tabs I used the smallest stitched square dies and cut them in all the colors I used and then added them to the colorful scrap pieces of cardstock that I used to create each file.

I then stamped out all the sentiments I wanted to use on white cardstock and then cut each piece down to size to fit each tab and then glued them in place.


To the inside of the card, I used the CZ Hello You Stamp set and combined the two sets to come up with the inside sentiment.

For this second card, I began by embossing the background of the card using this SSS Geometric Pattern in silver. I then die cut the center circle and used the circular opening to trace the circle out onto a piece of Neenah cardstock paper. I then stamped the succulents all around the perimeter circle and colored them in with Copic markers.

To the center, I used the CZ Tabbed Sentiments to stamp out the sentiment in the middle.

Finished off the card by adding a couple of rings to the circular opening of the panel and then added some rainbow crystal embellishments.

Farm Animal Friendship Card


Hey friends!

Today I have a super sweet Farm Animal friendship card to share with you featuring a bunch of cute supplies from Honey Bee Stamps

Most of the card was created by paper piecing all the elements together and there was actually very little stamping involved. I started by cutting out the pieces for Pinky the Pig out of some very pale pink paper. I then use some grey scraps and die cut the little pieces out for the hooves. I then glued all the pieces down to a black piece of cardstock that I had trimmed to the shape of the pig. To add a bit more dimension to Pinky's face I added another layer for his nose and die cut his eyes out from black paper and glued them in place. I then added some rosy cheeks by using a detail blending tool and adding some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink. To finish him off I added some white to the center of his eyes and cheeks. I repeated a similar process for piecing together Lily the Lamb

To build the scene, I began by die cutting my square panel using the largest double Stitched Square Die from Bristol paper. Next, I used Broken China Distress Oxide ink to blend out the background behind the animals. I then die cut 3 strips of grass using the grass border die stacked and glued them together and then ran them through the die cutter again with the square stitched die to clean up the edges. To create the swinging fence, I used the Farm Fences die which I cut and glued two layers thick using the bottom layer of the fence posts. I then die cut extra pieces of the bottom layer to connect and extend the length of the fences.

I wanted the fence to be able to open and close on the card front, so I made sure that one of the fence posts overlapped the other. To secure the fences to the sides of the card, I die cut 2 more bottom fence dies, folded and glued a couple of the posts behind the card panel, then bent the rest of the posts to the front of the card. Before doing that, I did cut very thin strips of paper to reinforce the tiny pieces of the fence along the bend. Once the fences were glued in place I added the top layer of the farm fence dies and distressed them a little with some ink. To create the closure, I just punched a hole through the fence post that overlaps the bottom fence and added a brad. By turning the head of the brad you can then open or close the fence as the leg catches on the other side of the fence to hold it in place.

Before gluing Pinky and Lily in place I stamped out the sentiment by masking half of the Small Gang Stamp on the top right of the card and then stamping the rest of the greeting on the inside of the card. I used Broken China Distress Oxide to stamp out the sentiment and heat set it with a clear embossing powder.

Hope this cute card inspired you today! I LOVE how this card turned out and had so much fun paper piecing these cuties together. For more inspiration using Honey Bee Stamps products check out the HB Blog.
