stacking heart dies + honey bee sneak peeks day 3

In my crafty opinion, everyone needs a set of stacking heart dies! And here's just one of the reasons...
...a diy cover panel! The panel was super easy to make with Honey Bee's Stacking Heart die set.
And the background was perfect for the new HB Bee Bold Alpha dies.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

chin up buttercup + honey bee sneak peeks day 2

Honey Bee sneak peeks continue! Today I want to show you two sets I'm super excited about...Bee Bold Alpha dies and the Chin Up Buttercup stamps & dies.


These sets are so fun, especially together! 

I couldn't resist adding some bitty bees from the Bee Hive set to both!

Have a happy Monday!

bitty bee shaker cards + honey bee sneak peeks day 1

Have you heard that Honey Bee has a new release coming soon? You are going to love it and I have a little sneak peek to share!
The little 3x4 Bee Hive stamp & die sets might be some of my new favorites! I have already added bitty bees to at least a dozen cards, including these!
This shaker card has the bee hive stamped & Copic colored on the front, the shaker panel placed over top and lots of bitty bees added.
On this card, I made a basic circle shaker and used a black Copic marker to doodle the heart-shaped trail on the acetate.

Thanks for stopping by & big hugs!

happy birthday taniesa

It is my wonderful friend Taniesa's birthday today! Happy birthday Taniesa!!!

Taniesa is such a sweet & caring person and I feel so lucky to have met her (and through crafting)! She recently started her own stamp company, Trinity Stamps. Isn't that so cool?!

The Trinity Stamps line has so many sweet images but the Bouquet of Hope might just be the sweetest! And it's so fun to color!!!
I love the image so much that I wanted a really just wanted a soft, simple background so I did a little marbling with Copic refills.
The BG11 is so soft that it's almost hard to capture it in the photos but it's so pretty in real life! I will definitely be doing it again!

Hugs to all of you this Friday and a special big birthday hug Taniesa! XO!
