Bee A Friend!

Hi everyone! I hope it's finally Spring where you are! Here in Colorado, we are still getting snow but there is lots of sunshine in between the storms and there are signs of Spring popping up! I have a card today inspired by the coming warmer weather!

I am showcasing the sentiment stamp set, Bee Sweet, from The Alley Way Stamps! There are so many great words in this set to combine and use on their own or with the cute bee images from Bee Unique or the adorable little bee from Got It Covered! I used the little bee and stamped a flower from Petal Pushers. I added a stamped and layered tag with the sentiment and finally some washi tape and some enamel dots. I love the tiny splashes of the lime green on this card!

I kept it simple on the inside with another flower outline and a sweet sentiment from the Got It Covered set!

Happy Happy Birthday!

Hello everyone! I love sequins! I love that they can be so tiny yet add so much to a project! They make me happy and inspire me to create happy things and this birthday tag is one of them!

I knew I wanted to create a tag with a tiny vellum envelope shaker full of shiny sequins. Then I just had to add in more happy elements! I stamped the bright pink banner flag with a confetti background and added a sweet birthday candle. Next was a brightly embossed birthday sentiment on a fabulous frame! A tiny twine tassel topped off with a bright sequin and more cheery twine at the top are the finishing touches!

Starry Congrats!

Hi everyone! It's getting very close to graduation season so I thought I would share a recent grad card I created! 

I used the brand new Star of the Show clear stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps! Stars are a perfect way to say congratulations and I just adore the sentiment that is included in the set! I curved the sentiment on my acrylic block before stamping so it would fit in this circle. I added lots of extra die-cut stars, cutting some of them out of the background! A few tiny gems add just a bit a sparkle so this would work for a guy or gal!

More stars on the inside and a big congrats sentiment! I also added the smaller 'you made it' from separate images in the Bitty Borders set.

Easter's On It's Way!

Hi everyone! Easter is almost here and I want to share some cards I created to give to my loved ones on Easter Day!

I was browsing through a local scrapbook store a couple of weeks ago and came across some stamps and embellishments I had never heard of! I was instantly smitten with the adorable images and especially with the 'pin' embellishments! This is a 'before' picture of them. The stamps and pins are from Darcie's Heart and Home collection and this set is 'Ears To You'- so cute!

And here are the Easter goodies I created with them! The images are stamped and then colored and then the pin goes on top to enhance the already cute image giving it a popped out look! Ingenious!

This small scalloped card features the bright and happy papers from the Lawn Fawn 'Hello Sunshine' 6x6 paper pack. I layered a die cut flourish with some colorful flowers and one of the charming sentiments in the set.

This card has softer pastel colors courtesy of the Teresa Collins 'Sweet Afternoon' 6x6 paper pad and the image is stamped on a gorgeous scalloped oval die-cut! Lots of felt flowers accent this cutie!

Back to color again with this card. I used Lawn Fawn's 'Let's Polka' 6x6 paper pack and colored the flower images from the set to match the bright paper.

Lastly, a card with a vintage feel. I inked all of the edges of the card stock along with the designer papers from My Mind's Eye 'Howdy Doody 6x6 paper pad. Charming banner flags and sweet buttons are the finishing touches!

Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!

Bee Amazing!

Hi everyone! I have another fun card to share that I created with the Bee Unique stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps!

For this card, I combined the little bee with the beautiful flowers and leaves from Flower Doodles in pretty Spring colors! I stamped the bee on a scalloped circle and then popped that off the background with some sheer ribbon behind it. A few pearls give it a nice, soft touch! Plus I added a curved sentiment from the Bee Sweet set!

A CAS inside with another gorgeous flower and a simple sentiment also from the Bee Sweet set. Such a pretty way to say Thank You!
