Happy BEEday Release Blog Hop | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello crafty friends! Today is Honey Bee Stamps first day of a two day blog hop celebrating their Happy BEEday Release. This release is particularly exciting because Honey Bee Stamps is also celebrating their 4th birthday! So make sure to head over to their blog to find out more about the whole celebration!

I created a card featuring the Chicken Coop die set, the Spring Chicks stamps and dies, and the Eggcelent Sentiments stamps and dies.


I stamped a bunch of the images from the Spring Chicks stamp set onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I then colored those in with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.


Next I took the Chicken Coop die set and cut the large section of the coop out of dark blue cardstock. I cut the scalloped roof die from some dark gray cardstock and the hay pile from some yellow cardstock. I popped up the larger piece onto a piece of dark gray cardstock and glued the rood and hay on with liquid glue.


I arranged the little chicks that I colored in inside the coop and glued them down. I also added one chick in the middle of the doorway and placed the cracked egg shell over his head. I stamped a sentiment from the Eggcelent Sentiments set on white cardstock with black ink. I used the coordinating die set to cut that sentiment out and I popped it up on the top of the chicken coop.


To finish up the card I created a 5 x 5 card base and then popped up a 4.25 x 4.25 piece of light gray cardstock on top of that. I then glued the entire chicken coop scene onto that. Finally, I used Wink of Stella to add some glitter to the egg shell and the sentiment.

Nursery Wall Art | Brutus Monroe Dies Blog Hop

Hey everyone! For today’s Brutus Monroe blog hop I am sharing something a little different! Instead of a card, I used a Brutus Monroe die set to create some wall art for my little girl River’s bedroom.


I first took a piece of Alabaster white cardstock and cut it down to 8 x 10 to fit in my frame. I then took the Square Alphabet die set from Brutus Monroe and ran the entire set through my Big Shot with a piece of Sidewalk gray cardstock. To make it easier I actually left the dies attached to the paper backing they come on when I ran them through the Big Shot.


Next I found a heart die that was a similar size to the letters in the Brutus Monroe set. I cut that heart as well as the letters “i” and “u’ out of some Cotton Candy pink cardstock.


I then popped up all of the letters in alphabetical order on the 8 x 10 white cardstock with foam tape. I used a ruler to help line everything up straight. I replaced the letter “o” with the pink heart so that the pink die cuts read “i heart u.”


To finish up the piece I went over the pink die cuts with my Wink of Stella glitter brush. Then all I had to do was put it in the frame and put it up on the wall!

Spellbinders Small Die of the Month January 2019 | First Crush

Today I am sharing a card created using the Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Club. This kit allows you to put together a cute little paper doll and it comes with lots of options so that you can make a really unique character. It also comes with dies to make a cute little heart balloon.


I cut out all of the pieces for my doll from different colors of cardstock. I used a piece of patterned paper for the dress. I also cut out the balloon and sting.


I used Gina K Connect glue to put my paper doll together. I decided to make a 4x8 card base for this design and I popped up a blue piece of cardstock onto that. I glued down my paper doll to the card. I also added the heart balloon.


Using a T-Square ruler and a white gel pen I added a frame around the doll. For my sentiment I stamped the ‘hugs’ stamp from the Floral Love stamp set onto some dark gray cardstock. I stamped it with Versamark ink and embossed it in Alabaster white embossing powder. I cut the sentiment into a strip and popped it up on the side of the card.


For the finishing touched on the card I first went over the balloon with Glossy Accents to give it some dimension. Next I added some cute puffy heart stickers around the sentiment. I used a white gel pen to add some details and highlights to the paper doll. Finally I created a fun wavy swirl design along the background using my white gel pen, some small clear star sequins, and a Wink of Stella glitter brush.
