Honey Bee Bundle Tufted and Stitched Card

Hello Kre8tors! Are you getting tired of bees yet? I certainly am NOT! This bundle has so much to offer with a HUGE variety of design possibilities! However, I do have some brand new sets on the way, so don’t worry, there will be lots of other projects coming soon! Be sure to follow my blog, and subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss a thing!

This card features an oldie but goodie, the Tufted Embossing Folder! This soft, pillowy background is perfect for the “stitched” design of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP that I’ve cut out using the largest Stitched Circle Die.

The best part about this designer series paper (aside from the gold foil inlays?)… it’s a FREE item with a qualifying $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. You can earn Sale-A-Bration items for FREE right now! Head over to my online store for more details!

The bold, dark bee stamped on vellum in Stazon Jet Black ink really makes a statement on this card. It pairs so well with the soft colors of Crushed Curry and Balmy Blue. I also love the sentiment stamped in Night of Navy. I’m having fun pairing two colors, one from each end of the spectrum (one dark and one light blue) plus a complimentary color such as yellow. I think the color palette just works together!

The other stamps and die cuts in this bundle are perfect to create a plethora of projects! Did you see my Shaker Card post? BEE sure to go and check that one out, you don’t want to miss out! I’ve already made tons of cards using this set. You can check them out in my Mini Catalog Playlist on my YouTube channel!

I also dotted a few of those beautiful sequins from the Metallic Baker’s Twine and Sequins Combo pack. Did you know that you can get those for FREE with a qualifying purchase? That’s right, during Sale-A-Bration they are FREE when you spend $50. Check them out in the materials section below!

Honey Bee Bundle Cut-Out Card

Hello Kre8tors! I’m using the Honey Bee Bundle again from the new Mini Catalog, and some of the gorgeous Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration flyer! What is Sale-A-Bration, you might be asking if you are new to Stampin’ Up!? It’s a wonderful time of year where you get FREE items for shopping!

Before we dive too far into Sale-A-Bration, let’s take a look at this simple but fun Cut-Out card. I saw this card in a Facebook post from Stampin’ Up!’s CEO, Sara Douglass. I loved it so much, I had to CASE it! At first glance, I wasn’t sure how she made the background on the inside of the card, but then it hit me! It’s just some designer series paper… COLORED IN! The actual paper has a white background, but with the help of a few sponge daubers, et voila! You can customize it to your color palette!

The best part about this designer series paper (aside from the gold foil inlays?)… it’s a FREE item with a qualifying $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. You can earn Sale-A-Bration items for FREE right now! Head over to my online store for more details!

I really love this unique card, and the cut-out on the front is super unique. This card is a hybrid z-fold card and it’s very simple to make! Check out my video tutorial below to see how it all comes together.

Welcome to Sale-A-Bration!

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to 2020 and to Sale-A-Bration! This is such an amazing time of year, because you get FREE products for shopping, hosting, or joining Stampin’ Up! I wanted to get our brand new Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Flyer launched with a fun project using the Honey Bee Bundle.

This bundle is perfect for a variety of cards, and coordinates with the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper. I am CASEing the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Flyer, and creating three projects for you that use this set along with that FREE paper! So be sure you follow my blog, subscribe to my YouTube channel, and find me on Facebook so you don’t miss out!

This card was a lot of fun to make. I tweaked it slightly to make it a standard size card instead of the square size that was shown in the SAB Flyer. It turned out beautiful, though I did have a hard time chopping up that gorgeous gold foil specialty designer series paper. But that’s what it’s for, right?!

I substituted a FREE SAB product, the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins, for the Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon as I don’t have any of that beautiful stuff quite yet… but 3 spools are on their way to me! If you were to purchase the Honey Bee Bundle, one spool of that Ruched Ribbon, and an adhesive, you would qualify to get the Golden Honey Specialty DSP for FREE! For more details, visit my online store.

There are also amazing perks for hosting a party (virtual) or joining my team. I would love to talk to you about the benefits of each option, and what extra goodies you get during SAB!

For now, let’s take a peek at what you need to make this awesome card! Check out my video tutorial below, and please let me know if there is anything I can help you with!

Happy New Year and let’s Sale-A-Brate!

Measurements:

Whisper White Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″

Honey Bee Bundle Shaker Card

Hello Kre8tors, and welcome to 2020! I’m so excited to get this year started off with some crafty inspiration for you! Today I’m using the Honey Bee Bundle from the new Mini Catalog, which will be live for customers on January 3rd, along with Sale-A-Bration! What is Sale-A-Bration, you might be asking if you are new to Stampin’ Up!? It’s a wonderful time of year where you get FREE items for shopping!

Before we dive too far into Sale-A-Bration, let’s take a look at this amazing Shaker Card using the Honey Bee Bundle from the Mini Catalog. I cut out the honeycomb using the die from the Detailed Bee Dies, and inlayed it onto the same cutout from a piece of Whisper White cardstock. There is a piece of Window Sheet behind the honeycomb die cut, that acts as the window to our shaker card.

I used the sequins from the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack which is a FREE item with a qualifying $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. You can start earning Sale-A-Bration items on January 3rd if you’re a customer, or go ahead and pre-earn NOW if you’re a demonstrator. Head over to my online store for more details! Or join my team to get your hands on these products ASAP!

I absolutely am in love with these bees! I’m normally not a bee person, but these bees are the perfect blend of not too cutesy with not too realistic. The shading on the wings is incredible, and they are so easy to color and cut!

The other stamps and die cuts in this bundle are perfect to create a plethora of projects! I’ll be coming out with MANY more, so be sure to follow my blog and subscribe to my YouTube channel!

This shaker card was inspired by Sandra Budde, a fellow Demonstrator, from Germany. She created a tutorial in German, but I absolutely had to make this card for myself, so I went ahead and made a video tutorial to share with you.

Measurements:

Whisper White Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Card Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Whisper White Scraps for Bees
Window Sheet: Approx. 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
Daffodil Delight Shaker Card Background: Approx. 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
Daffodil Delight Scrap for Honeycomb: Approx. 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
Basic Black Scraps for Sentiments

Christmas Gift Tags Day 5

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to Day 5 of my Christmas Gift Tag Week. If you missed the previous four days, make sure you pop over to the posts for Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4 to check them out! Now on to the last tag of the series. I made this one to coordinate with some of the other gift wrap I’m using to wrap the kids’ gifts this year. I wanted to coordinate the tag to the wrapping.

There are several different style tags in my series this week which all feature their own little, unique flair. I hope you enjoy all of the tags, and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss out on my video tutorials.

This is another fairly simple tag, though it does take a little longer to make due to the heat embossing. But I really love the raised images, especially the white on the black background. I colored in the ‘Tis the Season sentiment with a Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend. Because these markers are alcohol based, they stain the embossing, unlike water based markers which resist the embossing.

I used some of the images from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, and the sentiment from Tidings All Around to create this tag. I punched the tag using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and threaded some white Baker’s Twine through to attach it to my package.

On the back of the tag, I used my Snail Adhesive to glue a small square of Whisper White cardstock to write the To and From. Alternatively, if you had a white paint pen, a gel pen, or a chalk marker, you could skip that step and just write directly onto the tag.

I really love the way this tag looks on this package with the darker color scheme. The white really pops and makes the tag stand out. Are you loving the ‘dark side’ of this gift wrapping theme? 😉
