Card Workshop

I had my very first Stampin' Up Workshop on Saturday.  I wish I had gotten a few pics to post but I didn't even think of it.  I have to say that I think the workshop went really well and everyone had fun. It's so good to get together with fellow scrappers who enjoy what I enjoy.  Here are the cards everyone made.

Hope you enjoy my cards.

Until next time, have a blessed day!!

Honey Bee Box

Hey friends!!!! Well it's day three of homeschooling Braedon and lets just say it's not going as well as the first day.  On the first day, he wanted me to be his teacher but now I'm not so sure haha.  I think he thought I was going to go easy on him and he is seeing that isn't going to happen.

For todays project, I made this small box. It can hold a few pieces of candy.  You can't really tell but from this first pic there's a bow that I made using the Golden Honey Specialty DSP.  I also used more of the DSP to wrap around the box. I used Daffodil Delight to actually make the small box.

I cut the honeycomb out of daffodil delight Cardstock and glued it to the top of the box and stamped and cut the bees using the Honey Bee stamp set and matching dies.  I colored the bees using the darker daffodil delight blender pen.  I put a dimensional on each of the bees to give it a little extra pop.  If you know me, you know I love dimension on my projects.

Here is the box opened.  To keep the box closed, I used a magnet under the paper and under the bow.

I hope you enjoyed my creation today.  

Until next time, have a blessed day!!!

Wishing You Sunshine & Happiness Cards

Hey guys!!!! I hope you are enjoying the social distancing for the next week or two or maybe longer. I'm so excited to show you my cards for today.  I used the Honey Bee stamps and Dies from the Mini Catalog for this card. I couldn't be anymore please with the finished result.

I used the thick white Cardstock for the base and for the two layering pieces as well. I propped the pieces up with the dimensionals. I cut out the bee hive in the white Cardstock and Layered a piece of Daffodil Delight Cardstock cut out with the bee hive die and glued it down.  The Honey Comb is cut out of gold paper and glued on top of the daffodil delight bee hive.  The bees are stamped with black Memento ink and colored with the daffodil delight blenders. I propped the bees on dimensionals as well.  I'm loving this daffodil delight ribbon that goes so well with this set.  I double tied the bow and  used glue dots to attach it to the Cardstock.  The sentiment at the top was also stamped using the memento black ink.  To give my card a little extra pop, I used a pen to create dotted lines showing the direction the bees may have been flying.

 I also used the stamp for the inside of my card and added dotted lines once again.

Of course,  I had to make the envelopes to match the card.  This is the front of the envelope.

and the back of the envelope.

I hope you enjoyed my card because I sure had a lot of fun creating them.  I actually made six of them with matching envelopes.  

Until next time, have a blessed day!!!!

Valentine Gift Bag

Sometimes we need a gift  bag and we just do not have one lying around the house.  We may have a brown bag with handles or maybe just a small lunch sack.  We can actually decorate those up and make as pretty as a store bought gift  bag.  With a little designer paper and ribbon, you will be amazed at what your bag will look like at the end.

I received these bags when i signed up as a demonstrator for Stampin' Up.  It was a paper pumpkin kit from maybe last fall.  They are just small brown bags.  The front of the bag measured 5 1/2 x 4 1/2 and I cut some of the From My Heart DSP, ribbon, tag and created a cute Valentine bag for that special someone.

 Isn't the bow just so stinking cute!!!

Supplies Used:

Accessories: Real Red Ribbon,  small brown bag (a previous paper pumpkin kit),
