Buzz ~ That’s Bee Talk

I am loving bumble bees and they are so fun when it comes to card making. As I posted the other day I have been playing with some of the newly released product from Honey Bee Stamps. I designed this card using their new Buzz Honey Cuts and stamp.

Here are two card I created. I used a stencil that I made with my Cricut with a Close To My Heart image from Artbooking. I sponged on Canary ink over part of the overlay. I then used the Rectangle Thin Cuts to cut the stitched edge. For the Buzz I layered Black Glitter Cardstock, Canary and Daisy White cardstock. I used the Buzz Honey cut and stamp set for the sentiment. The thanks if from a past SOTM called Card Captions. I also added a couple of Bees from the Bee Hive stamp set and Honey Cuts.

Happy Crafting!

H2H ~ Texture It

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

I love this concept of texture!!! The possibilities are numerous!! It could be adding using heat embossing, dry embossing, layering paper, using ribbon, texture paste…. the possibilities are endless. I love using stencils and texture paste, although I don’t do it as much as I would like to, but plan to do more!!

To create this card I used a couple of our Stitched Rectangular Thin Cuts. I chose Canary, Black and White Daisy Cardstock. The stamp set is Country Bee which was sold with a coordinating Thin Cut; however, the thin cut is no longer available but the stamp is.

I created the stencil with my Cricut and the Stencil Sheets. I used the Opaque Matte Texture Paste with a couple drops of Canary Re-Inker to make it yellow. Once this had dried I then cut the smaller rectangle. I colored the bee with our Tri-Blend Markers. The sentiment is from A Birthday in Watercolor Stamp Set.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until February 29th to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!

ABC’s Blog Hop ~ H

ABC's Blog Hop

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter “H”. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “H” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at LINDA’S BLOG ~ SCRAPPY THERAPY

If you came from LAUREN MOORE- CTMH CRAFTINGS  then you’re on the right track!

So the first this that popped into my head when thinking about what I wanted to design for this hop was HEXAGON.   I just love seeing hexagons in layouts and on cards.  I have been seeing a lot of hexagon overlays being used for cards so I decided to make my own.  I used my Silhouette to create the white overlay.  Then I needed to pick the colors or paper pack and since Lollydoodle makes me so HAPPY, I decided it would be perfect!

Father’s day gift

I knew as soon as I saw the Buzz & Bumble paper that this would make a great Father’s Day gift.  I had been wanting to design another frame so this would be perfect.  Unfortunately it is hard to crate something and keep it a secret from my husband since he often pops into the craft room.  So he got one of his Father’s day gifts early….

Fathers day frame

To create this frame I used the My Creations Bracket Frame Z1797, Buzz & Bumble paper pack X7164B, Honeycomb stamp set C1537,  and Burlap ribbon Z1760.  I used the spellbinders tear drop die to make the rosette. I used my Silhouette to cut the letters and hexagons.

Hope you enjoy~  Cat
