Keep Going, Even At A Snail’s Pace

Hey Y'all!!!  Isn't this so true!  I love this stamp set from @stampingbella and all it says.  How many things are we scared to start because we think we are too slow, not talented enough, not good enough?  Just start and keep going.  As the sentiment says “Where you're headed is more important than how fast you are going”.  We should all remember that.  Keep moving forward even at a snail's pace.  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

I started with the “Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangle” die from Lawn Fawn.  Using two of the dies together makes a perfect little frame for Sally and her snail.  Love the stitched lines inside the scallops.

 

The paper is unfortunately a retired set called “Beach Babe” from Pink & Main.  They have the most beautiful colors in their paper.

 

Stamped the sentiment on Hammermill card stock and added some glitter dots from Stampin' UP!.

Stamped the cake with the Piece of Cake Stamp Set & Piece of Cake Honey Cuts from Honey Bee Stamps.

Layered the card with the Deckle Edge Honey Cuts from Honey Bee Stamps.  Added something special don't you think.

Honey Bees Making Honey – YUM!

Hey Y'all!!!  Did you know that Honey Bees can fly between 15-20 miles per hour.  A single colony can contain up to 60,000 bees!  What?!?  A single worker bee produces about .083 of a teaspoon of honey.  Guess that's why it takes so many bees.  They can visit up to 2,000 flowers per day.  Amazing creatures.   These particular bees don't come from nature but from Honey Bee Stamps.  And today they are making lots of honey!!!  You can see it dripping everywhere.  Delicious!

I LOVE these little honey bees.  Honey Bee Stamps has several stamp sets and dies.  I've used the Busy Bees Stamp Set & Honey Cuts, the Bee Hive Stamp Set & Honey Cuts and the Bee Hive Layering Honey Cut.

Don't you think it's easier to collect the honey if the hive and bees are already in the jar?  Haha!  Me too.  So I cut the jar from Honey Bee Stamps Mason Jar Card.  They all just fit perfectly.  Looks like a couple are trying to escape.  Maybe I need to put the lid back on.  I cut the two sides of the mason jar apart and used an exacto knife to trim away most of the center of one side.  Cut a second half o the jar with window sheets and glued it to the card I just trimmed.  Used foam adhesive strips to create a shaker card with the hive, bees and flowers inside.   

Colored the bees and flowers with Copic Markers from Scrapbookpal.com.  Matched the copic marker colors to sold cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey.  Used Pool Play, Summer Days, Haystack, Pineapple Smoothie, Watermelon Fusion & Beach Ball.

Embellished with Birthday Boy Glossy Dots from Pink & Main.

Card Layers:
8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 on the long side Summer Days
5 1/4 x 4 Beach Ball
Mason Jar Card – Pool Play

Let’s Eat Cake for your Birthday!

Hey Y'all!!!  You can always use a cute birthday card for someone special.  I love “Let's Eat Cake” from Fun Stampers Journey.  Includes cakes, cake stands, macaroons and cute sentiments.  Added balloons as the background and as an accent to bring even more to the party.  Wish BIG!  

I started by using Copic Markers to color the Cake.  Such colorful icing.  Can't wait to cut into it!.  Cake and cake pan are part of the “Let's Eat Cake” stamp set from @FSJourney.  Thought the candles should have glitter.  Everything is better with glitter!  

To cut the balloons I used the “Uplift Die Set” from Fun Stampers Journey.  It includes 4 different sizes of balloons to fit any size project.

The Celebrate 6 x 6 paper pad from Pink & Main is filled with great celebration patterns.  

The beautiful card stock is from Fun Stampers Journey.  I used Huckleberry Fusion, Limeade Splash & Rich Coral.

I used the sentiment from “Let's Eat Cake” to say Happy Birthday. Embellished with a white gel pen and silver twine.

Copic markers used for coloring are from @scrapbookpal.

Deck The Palms

Hey Y'all!!!  Wish this was my view right now!  Palm trees, stars in the sky, stockings full of glitter hanging on a line between the trees.  Well maybe I'd rather have a hammock between them but the stockings are too cute!  Christmas on an island!  Who's in?

I started by using Copic Markers to color the palm trees and stockings from the Deck the Palms stamp set  @pinkandmain.  I don't ever match the images to the paper but rather match the paper to the images.  Coloring just sort of sets the stage for the entire project.  Added some glitter to the stockings using some glitter pens I had.  I LOVE glitter and shiny things!  

Pink & Main has such cute 6 x 6 paper pads.  Such bright Christmas Colors.  Be Merry matched my solid card stock perfectly.

The beautiful card stock is from Fun Stampers Journey.  I used Candy Apple, Beach Breeze & Limeade Splash.  Complimented the colors in Pink & Main's Be Merry Christmas Paper Pad.

The sentiment is included with the Christmas Mugs stamp set from Pink & Main.  Enjoy the Java!  Stamped the sentiment in Black Licorice ink from Fun Stampers Journey.

Card Layers:
Card 8.5 x 5.5 – Beach Breeze
1st – 5.25 x 4 – Be Merry/Blue Stars
2nd – 4 x 3 1/4 – Limeade Splash
3rd – 3 3/4 x 3 – Be Merry/Green Stars
4th – 3 x 3 – Candy Apple
5th – 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 – Be Merry/Red Stars

As a background for the palm trees I used the Deckle Edge Honey Cuts from @honeybeestamps and layered them inside each other.  Popped up the palm trees to give it some dimension.

Copic markers used for coloring are from @scrapbookpal.
