Selfie with Honey Bee Scraps

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's my day once again to post on the Honey Bee Scraps Blog!!

This is the first "complete" page I have created during my design team here!  I'm so excited to share it!

And just to let you know, I have fallen even more in love with Honey Bee Scraps stamps!  They are so perfect to use for project life!!

So are you ready?
Here it is.....
 I used so many fun stamps in one page, it's so exciting!!

I first came up with the idea of what I wanted to do with the page, so I gathered my photos, as you can tell my daughter loves taking "selfies" of herself!  I can never leave my camera lay around for too long out of my site as she always seems to find it and then I find a million goofy and sweet pictures on it!!

I decided I wanted to try out the new Brush Grunge Alpha!  
LOVE it!!  

Before I started my 3x4 card, I first practice stamped part of the "selfie" sentiment to see what colors I wanted to use.
I instantly seen that using the fun mixture of bright colors was what this layout needed!  So I am so glad that I tested my idea out first!!

 Turned out even better then I imagined!

The cute little hearts around the "selfie" sentiment are from the Beautiful Life stamp set!  The fun splatters in the bottom right corner are from the Brush Grunge Alpha set as well and the cute camera is from the Oh, Snap! stamp set!!

Here's a close-up of the fun sentiment I created:
 So super fun with the bright colors!!

Being that my daughter loves taking pictures, I wanted to add the "keep calm and snap on" sentiment from the Oh, Snap! stamp set!

The word smile is in a few of the stamp sets, but I wanted to use a larger form, so again the Brush Grunge Alpha came into great use!!
 I just love how this little subtitle piece turned out!!

One last little title I added:
I love the large "beautiful" from the Beautiful Life stamp set!  The font is so fun!!  The "you are" is also part of the set!  Again, as I have shown before, these stamps are so fun to use to mix and match sentiments!!

So many great sets used in this one page!!

Happy Stamping!!

Birthday Fun with TSOL

Hello Crafty Friends!!

I have two fun cards to share with you today using some awesome products from The Stamps of Life!!

So I LOVED the outer circle and whole circle, which are part of the highlighters4planners stamp set!  And paired with the other circular images from the minis4circles set, I thought they would work wonderfully together!!

So I created these two cards:
I just LOVE how both of them turned out, but especially love this bright colored out!!

The Happy Birthday sentiment is part of the candles4birthday stamp set!

The birthday sentiment for this masculine card, is part of the robots2build stamp set!
I love TSOL's juicy ink pads!!!  And all the fun colors!

I used Banana, Blueberry, Licorice, Grape, GuavaSpearmint and Tangerine for these cards!

If you haven't seen yet, TSOL is introducing 12 new ink pads!!  Each Monday for the next 9 weeks!  3 have already been introduced!!  Check them out here!!

Wonderful Friend with Honey Bee Scraps

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's my day once again to post on the Honey Bee Scraps Blog!!

Today I am sharing a card I created for a sweet friend!

Something I really like about the Honey Bee Scraps stamp sets is the fact that you can mix and match them to create your own sentiments!!

I love the large sentiments in the Beautiful Life stamp set!  

When I seen the work "wonderful" I knew I wanted to create a card for a friend, so that it would say wonderful "friend"!  No problem as the Sweet As Honey stamp set has the "friend" sentiment in it!!
It's so awesome to be able to mix and match sets!  Creates so many more possibilities!!

It's as if the friend was meant to go with the wonderful sentiment as it fits perfectly under the "ful" part of the sentiment!!

I also really liked the "swirl" in the Sweet As Honey stamp set, I thought it would be fun to use to create some more interest on my pattern paper.
Fits right in!  Looks as though it was there!

Now for my finished card:
I just LOVE how it turned out!  Such fun colors!!

The beautiful floral image is from the Not Too Shabby stamp set!
All these sets work so beautifully together!!

Happy Stamping!!

Beauty with MHK Designs

Hello Sweet Crafty Friends!
Happy Wednesday, hope you are having a lovely evening!
Tomorrow is my Friday!!  Woot!  Woot!
Going to spend the weekend with some lovely friends of mine!

A sweet crafty friend of mine, Mynn Kitchen, has started her own wonderful Etsy shop, called MHK Designs

Today she is introducing the awesome "Beauty" set!
Beauty Digital Stamp Set
I fell in love with this set!
I love flowers, so I was immediately attracted to the image!
And I LOVE the "wishing you sunshine & daisies today and always" sentiment!!

So I paired those two together to create my first card using some of Mynn's digital images:
I love how my card turned out!

I printed the sentiment on pattern paper and created it somewhat big as I wanted it to stand out, just as much as the image!

Close-up of the flowers:
Aren't they beautiful?!
I sure think so!

Such a fun set!
Be sure to check out all the great MHK products here!

Have a lovely day!

I love how this beautiful card turned out:
 Created for the kids babysitter to let her know how much I appreciate her taking such good care of our kids!!

The "You are so Thoughtful" sentiment is part of the Fancy Labels I set!
I masked the "Heartfelt Thanks!" sentiment from the Graceful Hydrangea to only stamp the "Thanks!" beneath the other stamped sentiment.
