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

I’m So Happy To Have A Friend Like You

Hey Y'all!!!  Isn't this card so fun!  The cute “Hair Play” Stamp Set is from Stamping Bella. We all need to be pampered a little.  We all really need to be pampered a lot!!  I love the way the “Arched Window Die” from Whimsy Stamps made me feel like I was looking through the window.  So fun!  And I'm so fortunate that my friend/daughter actually cuts and colors my hair.  What could be better?

Colored these two best friends first with Copic Markers.  List of markers below.  Matched the copic marker colors with solid card stock.  The window is finished with a clear window sheet cut and glued to the back of the Arched Window Die.  Thought the Lots of Dots Die would make a cute background complemented by the pinks & greens.

Card Layers:
8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Scored at 4 1/4 for Card Base
5 1/4 x 4 Lots of Dots Die

Jeep… It’s a Girl Thing

Hey Y'all!!!  My crafting life includes so many more things than Copics, greeting cards and scrapbooking.  Like my Cricut and oh the things you can do with it.  I actually own a 1981 Red Jeep and when I saw this SVG file from SVGCUTS.com I just fell over.  Sweet!!!  So cute and easy.  The SVG has all the pieces you need to create a jeep in your favorite color!

Happy Birthday from The Mad Hatter

Hey Y'all!!!  Did you know that English illustrator John Enniel depicted The Hatter wearing a hat with 10/6 written on it. The 10/6 refers to the cost of a hat — 10 shillings and 6 pence.  It later became the date and month to celebrate Mad Hatter Day.  I'd love to have a birthday party with him!  Wouldn't you?  He's available from @stampingbella with a matching die.  Don't you just love matching dies?

Colored him first with Copic Markers listed farther down in this post.  Matched the copic marker colors to sold cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey.  Used Turbo Teal and Whip Cream.   Whimsy Stamps has a beautiful 6 x 6 paper pad that matched perfectly.  How cute is the name ‘Otter'?

 

I had purchased some chipboard sentiments from Make It Crafty before the shop closed.  Loved the birthday sentiment.  Colored it with Copic Markers and attached it to the top of the image.  It's actually two pieces of chipboard, a thicker sentiment in the back.

Card Layers:
5 1/4 x 4 Whimsy Stamps Otter
4 x 3 1/2 – Whip Cream
3 3/4 x 3 1/4 – Whimsy Stamps Otter
3 1/2 x 3 – Turbo Teal

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.
