honey bee brie mine hop

Welcome to day 2 of the Honey Bee Brie Mine hop! Have you had a chance to check out the new Brie Mine stamps & dies? This release includes some sweet treats like candy & cupcakes, so of course I'm smitten! I love sugar even when I can't eat it, haha!
I had fun doing some repeat stamping with some of the sweet new sentiments. Repeat stamping is one of my favorite ways to stretch my stamps and create my own backgrounds but its a technique that baffled me as a newbie stamper. When I saw other crafters' beautiful cards with repeated designs, I wondered how did they line that up and space it so evenly?!

Here's the way I've finally figured out how to do it...








By the way, you should have arrived here from Amy's blog and you should be heading to Ilda's. Have fun hopping!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Carly
