Honey Bee Stamps - Sea Full of Love

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.  I decided after making so many Christmas cards, it was time to take a break and do a bright, fun, and sparkly card.


For today's card, I decided to use the adorable mermaid stamp and assorted images from the Under the Sea Stamp Set by Honey Bee Stamps.  I stamped the images onto some Canson XL watercolor paper and then colored the images with my Zig Markers and a Detailer Water Brush.  Next, I cut the image out with the coordinating Under the Sea Honey Cuts Dies.  Next, I set the images aside and created my background.  I used my Gansai Tambi Watercolor 36 color set and a paint brush to create the fun background.  I then stamped the sentiment with some Versamark Ink and white heat  embossed it.  Then I adhered the panel onto a standard A2 sized notecard.  Next, I adhered all the images with some foam tape to create this fun scene. I also added lots of glitter to the images using my  Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen.  I hope you enjoyed today's card.  Have a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year!!!


LDRS - Sweet Thank You Card

Sunny Studio Stamps - Creating a Fun Winter Scene

Hi everyone!  It's Christine here with a fun wintery card to share.  I had so much fun putting this card together.  Here's my card:




For my card today, I first stamped the adorable images from the Playful Polar Bears Stamp Set from Sunny Studio onto some Canson XL watercolor paper.  I colored the images using my Zig Markers and a Detailer Water Brush.  Next, I cut the images out using the coordinating Playful Polar Bears Dies.  Next I created my background by inking some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink and some Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink onto some Canson XL watercolor paper and then lightly spritzing the background with water to create a fun distressed look.  Next, I cut some hillsides out of some Bristol Smooth Cardstock using my stitched hillside border dies from Lawn Fawn (I lightly inked the tops of the mountains with some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink.  I then adhered the inked panel to a standard A2 sized card base.  I then adhered my polar bears and accessories to the front of the card to create my scene.  I used foam tape to adhere everything to give it an extra pop.  I stamped the sentiment onto the front of the card panel with some black ink.  What do you think?

Well that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Huge Hugs!!!&

For my card today, I first cut out a piece of Kraft cardstock and inked it with some Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink.  I then used my Echo Park Snowflakes #2 stencil and some Silver Glitter Paste to create the beautiful textured and glittery snowflake background.  Next, I stamped my adorable image from the Ski-sons Greetings stamp set by MFT onto Canson XL watercolor paper and then painted the image with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a Detailer Water Brush.  I then cut the cute bear out using the Coordinating DieNamics Ski-sons Greetings dies and then adhered the image to the front of the snowflake panel with foam tape.  I next stamped the sentiment onto some black cardstock with some Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then adhered the sentiment to the panel using foam tape and then adhered the entire panel to a standard A2 sized card base.  What do you think?

LDRS: Fun Wintery Scene Using Little Darlings Stamps and Dies


Hi everyone!  I'm here with you today to share a super fun winter/Christmas card using an adorable LDRS Creative stamp and die set from Little Darlings (and these are on sale right now too!!!).

To create this card, I first created my background using some Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks.  I spritzed the panel with some water to give it that fun distressed look.  I then stamped the adorable images from the North Woods Stamp and Die Set from LDRS Creative and then colored the images with my Zig Markers and a water brush.  I then cut out the critters and trees using the coordinating dies that come in the set.  Next, I used the hillside border die from the Snowy Day Border Die Set (this die can actually be used in so many ways . . . it coordinates with the snowflake border die beautifully, but, as I did here, you can use it by itself to create a fun hillside) to create a snowy hillside and then adhered that to my distress inked panel.  I then adhered the trees and critters to the panel with some foam tape and then adhered the entire panel to the front of a standard A2 sized note card.  I added a sentiment from the Splendid Azure Quick Words Sticker Set which I thought went well with the little scene I created.  My idea is to give this as a thank you note for Christmas gifts received during the holiday season.  Finally, for a finishing touch, I added some Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops on the tree and around the panel to look like snow.

Honey Bee Stamps - Acorn Sisters

Hi everyone!  It's Christine here for Butterfly Reflections Ink.  I just had to squeeze in one more fall card before I buckled down and made all my Christmas cards.  I decided to create a card using the adorable Acorn Sisters Stamp Set from Honey Bee Stamps.  Here's my card:


To create my card, I first created my background by cutting a piece of Canson XL watercolor paper to a standard A2 size card front and painting it with some fall watercolors using my Gansai Tambi 36 Set Watercolor Paint Set.  I just did a simple watercolor wash background technique to create this look.  Next, this image was screaming to me to do some no water coloring, so I stamped the image with some watercolor approved black ink and stamped it onto some Canson XL watercolor paper.  I then painted the image with my Zig Markers and my Detailer Waterbrush.  I then cut the image out using the Coordinating Acorn Sisters Honey Cuts Dies.  I stamped my sentiment onto my panel and then adhered the image with some foam tape.  I then adhered the entire panel to a standard A2 sized card base.  For a finishing touch, I added some Iridescent Crystals Mix from Studio Katia.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thank you so much as always for stopping by and have a wonderful day!  Hugs, Christine
