This fashionably dressed mother and daughter are from the Beautiful Moments Stamp Set.
Side by Side
I had fun dressing them, like paper dolls, using the “paper-piecing” technique with Tropical Oasis Designer Paper.
I first stamped the mother and daughter in Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I stamped the mother and daughter on the DSP, and fussy cut the dresses.
TIP: It feels weird cutting off their heads, arms and legs, but you have to do it!
After gluing the dresses in place, I colored their skin with the Ivory Stampin’ Blend, and their hair with several colors named in my Product List below.
I used the largest Stitched So Sweetly Die for cutting.
The background is a Soft Sea Foam card base, stamped with palm trees from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.
“Side by Side” is from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set, cut with another Stitched So Sweetly Die. This sentiment is perfect, don’t you think?
Today’s card was inspired by the Paper Player’s challenge, “Fashion Fun.”

Bzzzz, bzzzz, these bees are busy, making a card to be sent to someone endearingly named “Honey.”
The bees liked that I stamped them in Early Espresso Ink, rather than black, for a change. And, I appreciated how still they sat while I cut them with a Detailed Bee Die.
We made the see-through flower and leaves with Poppy Moments Dies, using Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and Pear Pizzazz Cardstock. I used the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder on the leaves to contrast with the smooth Whisper White background.
To make the honeycomb, I used a Detailed Bees metal die as a stencil, and applied Daffodil Delight Ink with a Sponge Dauber. The bees thought my method was crazy, but they liked the way it turned out.
Do you see how the honeycomb resembles the shape on the right side of this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge?
Finally, I needed the word “honey,” which I made using the letters from the Hand-Lettered Prose Die Set. To make the letters “soft” like the honeycomb, I applied Daffodil Delight Ink to Thick Whisper White Cardstock with a Sponge Dauber. That area beneath the “y” is what I used for the flower’s center.
This card makes the bees happy, and I hope it does the same for the “Honey” who receives it.

Today’s project is a winter time, masculine, birthday card.
It developed because of the parameters set by the Fusion challenge, where I used the theme, photo, and the sketch.
The first thing I did was use the Majestic Mountain Die to cut the tree from Copper Foil. After seeing the photo, how could I not use this tree?
Next, using the largest Layering Circles Die, I cut a circle from Basic Black Cardstock, keeping one edge straight, as it is in the sketch.
The background is the wonderful, burlap, Pressed Petals Designer Paper, which I glued to a Basic Black card base.
“Happy Birthday” is from the Clubhouse Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink on the burlap DSP, and cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die. I layered the sentiment on Basic Black Cardstock for thickness, and placed it on Mini-Dimensionals.
Adding five, black, sequin, stars was the final touch.
Thank you for visiting me today. I hope I’ve inspired you with this masculine card. Clicking on the pictures in my Product List will take you to my store for shopping. Thanks!
