Spring Bliss Release Sneak Peek Day 4 – Honey Bee Stamps

Spring Bliss Release Sneak Peek Day 4 – Honey Bee Stamps published on 2 Comments on Spring Bliss Release Sneak Peek Day 4 – Honey Bee Stamps

I’m so excited to share a sneak peek of the new Spring Bliss Release from Honey Bee Stamps. The release goes live today, February 16th at 11p Eastern.

Today I’m sharing with you an adorable die set, the Itty Bitty Eggs Honeycuts, along with the Easter Buddies stamp set and dies, and introducing today’s new product, Playful Pastels Paper Pack. ** Links will not be live until the release launches at 11p tonight **

This little set of dies is just too fun! I took distress ink in different colors and brushed it onto Bristol paper. Then I just got to cutting out the eggs. Super fast and easy! On one of the cuts, I made sure the three eggs were evenly spaced and then I used that negative as a template for placing the eggs on the panel.

I chose a sentiment from the new Easter Buddies set that I thought was the perfect size to not cover the eggs too much. I stamped in Versafine Clair Morning Mist in keeping with the pastels. Finally I just tied on some ribbon from my stash to make it feel more finished.

So glad you stopped by today! Don’t miss the LIVE Release party at 9p Eastern followed by the actual release at 11p.

Spring Bliss Release Sneak Peek Day 3 – Honey Bee Stamps

You may have seen that Honey Bee Stamps has started sneak peeks for their Spring Bliss Release. As a member of their social media team, I get to join in on the release fun too! I am sharing today’s Day 3 peeks along with the rest of the team.

The products featured today are going to be must-haves for many of your stamp rooms. First is the Old Rugged Cross stamp set and coordinating dies and I combined them with the Wood Frame Builder Honeycut Dies and the Basketweave Stencil that was revealed on Day 1. ** Please note that the links will not work properly until the release goes live on Feb. 16th at 11p **

As we approach Lent this week, I was particularly drawn to the Old Rugged Cross set. All of the images and dies combine for many, many variations. This is a multi-purpose set that is wonderful for Easter and Christian holidays but also for sympathy cards. As soon as I saw the set, I knew what I wanted to make. The crown of thorns image is perfectly sized to work with the crosses in the set and the die cuts the center to allow it to hang. The draped banner comes in two images that you can use together or separately to create the layered appearance on the cross.

Once I had the cross built, I wanted to use other products to highlight but not overshadow it. I started with the Frame Builder dies and just cut a white frame to add texture. But the card seemed a little too clean even for me. So I grabbed the new Basketweave Stencil and brushed on some Antique Linen Distress Ink to add more depth behind the cross. Finally, I had to choose a sentiment and this one seemed to be just exactly right. Again, the detail on the dies that cut the sentiment close allow so much more of the rest to show through.

Thanks so much for stopping in today. I’ll be back tomorrow with another peek.

The release will go live tomorrow night (Feb. 16th) at 11p Eastern after a release party at 9p Eastern. You can find the party on Instagram with Honey Bee Stamps!

Sweet Sunflower for Honey Bee Stamps

Sweet Sunflower for Honey Bee Stamps published on No Comments on Sweet Sunflower for Honey Bee Stamps

Hello my friends! I hope the week has been good. I’m here to share a card I created for Honey Bee Stamps on Instagram today. Even though I have lots to be doing creatively this week, I just needed to take a moment for some coloring. And what better than a wonderful flower.

While it isn’t quite sunflower season, it is ever really NOT the time to color one this pretty?! Yeah, I thought the same. I pulled out lots of yellows and browns and got to work (a picture of the colors below). I just played with shading until I was happy.

Next I worked on leaves and then the wheat. The wheat adds a nice texture element with the flower. The Farmhouse Check background stamp is one that I will use over and over. Today I purposely under inked it for a tattered effect. Kind of loving that! And then finally the sentiment from the set. Perfect!

I hope you enjoy this one and that it inspires you just to sit down and color a bit. I didn’t do this all in one sitting and I highly recommend projects that take a bit of time. Thanks for stopping in today. I’ll be back tomorrow with a new card for the latest release by Honey Bee Stamps.

Journey Together – Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Friday! Today I have a card to share with products from Honey Bee Stamps. The latest release was called Love Letters and my card today used a number of items from that release.

I fell in love with this adorable Enjoy the Ride Stamp Set and Honeycut Dies. I chose the bike image but there is a moped one too…such fun! And there are tons of little add-on pieces that give you tons of options. I’m not huge on sappy Valentine’s cards for my husband but this set seemed to hit just the right note. I gave “me” a cute little beret and “my husband” the sunglasses (which he always wears). A little bread and wine too!

I thought this would work well on a slimline card and pulled out Honey Bee Stamps’ slimline products. First off, I used the Horizon Slimline Borders to create a road for the bike and then the grass too. I thought the Wispy Clouds Honeycut was a nice add for the sky. The sentiment from the stamp set is perfect and I really love it for my husband. And I’m such a fan of dies that can cut the sentiments. I created the decorative panel smaller so that I could show off the stitching in the Slimline Sentiments: Stitched Honeycut.

I had a ton of fun creating this and look forward to playing with this stamp more. I hope you enjoy this one. Thanks so much for stopping in. I’ll see you next week!

Love Letters Release Day – Honey Bee Stamps

Love Letters Release Day – Honey Bee Stamps published on No Comments on Love Letters Release Day – Honey Bee Stamps

Today is release day for the Love Letters by Honey Bee Stamps! I have timed this post so that the links and shopping should be live tonight. Believe it or not, even more products are being shown today and I’m excited to share the Adore Dies (that have a coordinating stamp set).

I love the layering feature of the dies and thought I’d create a card that really focused on them. I inked some Bristol Smooth with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and cut out with the word dies. Then I cut some vellum with the dotted accent dies. So pretty together!! I used the Lovely Layers: Heart Vine Dies in the background to create a tone on tone texture. I love this effect! To keep the balance and make plenty of room for details and “white” space, I created this card in a slimline format (8.5″ x 3.5″). These are really wonderful in person and still fit in a standard priced envelope (this one is Gina K ). I hope you are inspired to give this size a try!

I hope you will go visit the Honey Bee Stamps site and check out all the new products. This is a spectacular new release! I hope you have enjoyed my cards for the peeks this week. Thanks so much for joining me!

Welcome back for day 3 of the Love Letters Release Sneak Peek from Honey Bee Stamps! The release will go live on January 2nd at 11a EST.

I get to show you a wonderful new die set today, the Lovely Layers: Heart Vine Dies which I combined with the new Love You Bunches stamp set. (A reminder that the links go live with the release on January 2nd)

Between the pattern paper and the dies, I almost had no work on this card! I cut the dies first using white for the base vine and the Birthday Bash Patterned Paper for the top vine. I glued them together and then started working on what I would do with them. The answer came pretty quickly! All I did was use the reverse design of the paper! I pulled one of the new sentiments from Love You Bunches and heat embossed with white embossing powder. To get a little extra dimension on the vines, I cut another base vine and stacked them. I added few sequins from my stash and done!

This release goes live on January 2nd but TODAY there is a big sale!! Click the banner above to shop with my affiliate links (and I so appreciate when you do!) or SHOP HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping in today! I have a short break tomorrow and then I’m back for release day on Saturday! Please be safe as you celebrate the new year. We can agree that 2020 can move on along but I want to make sure you are all happy and healthy in 2021. See you soon!

Love Letters Sneak Peek Day 2 – Honey Bee Stamps

Love Letters Sneak Peek Day 2 – Honey Bee Stamps published on No Comments on Love Letters Sneak Peek Day 2 – Honey Bee Stamps

Welcome back for day 2 of Honey Bee Stamps‘ Love Letters Sneak Peek. It is available starting January 2nd at 11a EST.

For today my featured products are Hugs Enclosed Stamps and Dies, the Quilted A2 Cover Plate Die plus the new Love Letters Paper Pad. (Release links will be live on January 2nd)

This fun set is perfect for anyone who needs a hug in the mail! There is a large background style stamp in the set that I used on the envelope flap and then envelopes that are individual with their own dies. I used just one of them and stamped then Copic colored three of them. The dies cut them out easily. The sentiment is from the same set with the coordinating dies. Stamped in Versamark on black card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

For the background of the card, I chose one of the papers from the new pad and used the Quilted die to add a bit of texture. I tied on a little bit of coordinating twine to finish the card.

Thanks so much for stopping in today. I hope you enjoy this peek. I’ll be back tomorrow with day 3 peeks.

Love Letters Sneak Peek Day 1 – Honey Bee Stamps

Love Letters Sneak Peek Day 1 – Honey Bee Stamps published on No Comments on Love Letters Sneak Peek Day 1 – Honey Bee Stamps

I am excited to be a part of a Sneak Peek and Release Week with Honey Bee Stamps and today is Day 1. This whole release (and it is a full release with tons of products!) is amazing. It is available starting on January 2nd at 11a EST.

My featured products today are the To My Butter Half Stamps and Dies. (These release links will not be live until January 2nd)

This adorable set features fun images and interchangeable faces to add (or leave off). I am not gonna’ lie when I say I laughed and ran to show my kids this set. You see, I tell them this ALL THE TIME!!! Not sure when it started but when they do something particularly helpful, I tell them they are good eggs. Needless to say, this will go into heavy rotation for family cards.

I stamped the images in Momento Tuxedo Black and then Copic colored them. At first I did the images without the faces but in the end, could not resist the cuteness factor created by adding them. I thought this great pattern from the Birthday Bash Paper Pad was a perfect way to add fun to the card without taking away from the images. I love how the dies in the set cut out the sentiments! This feature is so helpful in card designs with patterned papers.

Thanks for joining me for this Day 1 Peek. I’ll be back tomorrow with Day 2.

25 Days of Christmas Tags – Honey Bee Stamps

I am so excited to be joining in on Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags! Today’s featured sponsor is Honey Bee Stamps.

I have long been a fan of Honey Bee Stamps and one of my all-time favorite Christmas images is from them! The best snowman ever is from the Let It Snow set.

I stamped our little friend in Momento Ink and did a quick color with Copic Markers. I brushed some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink onto white card stock and cut two tags from the same piece. After splattering them a bit for depth I simply added the snowman and some flakes from the set. The sentiment comes from the same stamp set and I stamped it on red card stock in Versamark Ink, then heat embossed in white. The rectangle die is from the coordinating Let It Snow Honey Cuts, along with the dies to cut out all the stamped images. I added a bit of red ribbon and twine from my stash to finish.

There are all kinds of ways to win so head on over to Tracey’s main post for all the details! So many prizes and giveaways!

Thanks for stopping in today! So happy to have been able to join the fun. See you soon!

My second post of today because it is a busy week! It is Crafty Friends Blog Hop day! This month we are showcasing products made with Honey Bee Stamps. They are another of those companies that are such great stamping community members and I am thrilled to be a part of celebrating them.

I was in need of some less “girly” birthday cards and the Piece of Cake Stamp Set was the perfect answer. So many fantastic options! I colored the cupcake with Copic and put it up on its very own little pedestal.

Isn’t it fun? The sentiment is from the same set and I thought a little banner was perfect for it. I found this cute patterned paper in my stash that matched the scallops of the holder. And it was in green, clearly meant to be!

I continue to be so thrilled that companies are working with us to give you discounts for our hops. Shop with Honey Bee Stamps on May 20 – 21 and use the code CRAFTYFRIENDS20 at checkout to get a 20% Discount. Click the graphic above to get to the shop.
