Honey Bee Is A “Last-Chance” Product

I just love these bees! Of all the Last-Chance products, the Honey Bee Stamp Set and Detailed Bee Dies are my favorite.  The dies were out of stock for a while, but are available now, and you can order the two in a bundle (#153792) for a 10% savings.  If this is on your list, I would order ASAP.

Bees Say “Hello”

 

These bees were made “golden,” using the heat embossing technique. I stamped the bees in VersaMark on Whisper White Cardstock, sprinkled them with Gold Embossing Powder, and used the Heat Tool for setting the powder to a shine. Then, I used their Detailed Bee Die for cutting.

TIP: Because the bees are small and detailed, I used Washi Tape to hold the die over the bee, before running it through the die-cutting machine.

 

I gave the bees a background of Ornate Floral embossing, with the same heat embossed gold. Then, I used an Ornate Layers Die to give it a pretty edge, and doubled it for thickness. Next, I used a Layering Circles Die to cut a hole for the bees, so they could go inside to make honey.

A second Ornate Layers Die was used for an additional “fancy” layer atop a Thick Whisper White card base.

 

Before adhering the layers, I tied Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around, and added a double bow. “Hello” is from the Honey Bee Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched So Sweetly Die.

My layout was from Freshly Made Sketches.

Beautifully Braided Floral Design

This image from the Beautifully Braided Stamp Set is one of my “surprise” favorites. I recently purchased it, because my husband said, “I can’t believe you didn’t get that stamp!” So, what’s a girl to do?

Ginko Leaves

 

Today’s card came together quickly with the ginko leaves, which I stamped in Mossy Meadow Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. I colored the stems with a Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend, and added a pop of red with a Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blend.

Keeping it simple, I layered this on a Mossy Meadow card base.

 

 

Next, I stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. “Your smile brightens my day” is also from the Beautifully Braided Stamp Set.  

I used an Ornate Layers Die for cutting, making two cuts for a narrower strip.

 

My inspiration for the layout was from Freshly Made Sketches.

 

Better late than never; I love the Arts & Crafts feel of the ginko leaves. I hope you do too! You can see the entire stamp set in my Product List below.

Tropical Oasis Masculine Card

The Tropical Oasis Designer Paper has wonderful, classic cars, with surf boards on top, something guys would appreciate.

Tropical Birthday

 

I began by using a Stitched Rectangles die to cut one of the cars from the 12X12 DSP. I backed it with cardstock, so it would be nice and sturdy atop the hexagon.  

The hexagon was made with two Stitched Nested Label Dies. First, I glued the brown DSP to cardstock for sturdiness, then cut the shape with both dies at the same tie.

 

Next, I raised the hexagon frame on Foam Adhesive Strips, and glued the car in place.

The background is is a fabulous field of palms on a Soft Sea Foam card base.

“From all of us,” is from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set. It’s stamped in Early Espresso Ink, and cut with the Classic Label Punch.

 

The final touch was a palm branch, cut from Pear Pizzazz Cardstock with a Tropical Die. The card has “Happy Birthday” stamped inside, and is ready for a celebration.

 

My inspiration was from Freshly Made Sketches.

I’m also sharing with Fab Friday.

“Hey, Lady!”

 

This is my first design using the Little Ladybug Stamp Set and Ladybugs Dies. I adapted it to fit this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

 

I kept it clean and simple with a Thick Whisper White card base, topped with a Subtle Textured layer of Whisper White Cardstock. The vertical piece on the right was cut with an Ornate Layers Die.

 

The ladybug and flower were stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with their dies. Then, I colored them with Stampin’ Blends  shown in my Product List.

 

There’s a number of great sentiments in the stamp set, but “Hey, Lady!” is my favorite. I stamped it in Memento Black Ink, and used a Stitched So Sweetly Die for cutting.

 

Thanks for stopping by, and I wish you a lucky day!

Daisy Thoughts For You

The Daisy Lane Stamp Set and Daisy Punches continue to be a favorite of mine.

By Su Mohr for FMS; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Medium Daisy Punch, Daisy Lane Stamp Set, Peaceful Moments Stamp Set, Ornate Frames Stamp Set, pearls; #daisylane #peacefulmoments #daisies #daisiesoncards #flowersoncards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #stampinup #2020saleabration

Daisy Thoughts

 

This daisy was stamped in Daffodil Delight Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with the Medium Daisy Punch. I curled the petals with my Bone Folder, glued them together, and placed the flower on a Dimensional. The center was made with seven tiny pearls, and yes, the pearls happen to be my Host Code gift for the month of March! You’ll always find my current Host Code beneath my profile photo.

 

Are you wondering how I made the circle? I didn’t know how I would do it, until I started! LOL! I found the largest Layering Circles Die, and cut the circle from a piece of 4″ X 5 1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock. Using this as a stencil, I attached it with Sticky Notes to an identical piece of Cardstock. Then, I filled in the circle with Pool Party Ink, applied with a Sponge Dauber. I love stenciling, because it’s so much fun to remove the stencil and see the results!

 

 

Before attaching the daisy, I stamped the stem, also from the Daisy Lane Stamp set, in Garden Green Ink.

All that remained was the sentiment, which I found in the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set. I stamped “Thinking of you with all my heart” in Garden Green Ink, and used an Ornate frames Die for cutting.

 

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.

 

Here is my Host Code for March. When placing your order (50.00 minimum) there will be a box for you to type in this code, so I can send you pearls in April.

Positive Thoughts Sympathy Card

Positive Thoughts Sympathy

 

I began today’s card with the branch, stamping it in VersaMark on Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, set it with the Heat Tool, and cut it with its Nature’s Thoughts die. 

 

I imagined the beautiful, gold branch against burlap, which I found in Pressed Petals Designer Paper. I cut a rectangle using a Nature’s Thoughts die, and backed it with Lily Impressions Designer Paper in purple. Then, I cut a 1″ strip of burlap, and backed it with Lily Impressions DSP in red.

The Lily Impressions DSP is one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration items for a qualifying order, and I love the deep, rich, colors on the solid side.

I used the same heat embossing method to stamp “sympathy” on the Lily Impressions DSP, and used the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting.

The three sprigs were made with a Nature’s Thoughts die and Lily Impressions DSP, glued flat to the burlap, while the branch was placed on Dimensionals.

 

The background is Whisper White Cardstock, embossed with the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder, atop a Thick Whisper White card base.

I added three, little, sequins as the finishing touch.

 

Freshly Made Sketches was my inspiration.

 

My Host Code gift for the month of March is Pearl Basic Jewels (140 total pearls).  If you order a minimum of $50.00 in March, I will send you the Pearls in April. YAY! Plus, a $50.00 order will earn you a FREE Sale-A-Bration item, like the Lily Impressions Designer Paper.

 

Thank you for stopping by. Stay safe and happy stamping!
