Oops! It's Retired














































Hello Hivers,

Some how the Cup of Cheer did not get marked as Retired on my shelf.  I will occasionally use a retried stamp set or accessory, however, I made these cards thinking the stamp set was still current.  Any who....They still look great.  Check out the inside of the card below.

I wanted a design that would show off both sides of the Designer Series Paper.  The Candy Cane Lane DSP and the Star of Light stamp set are both current products that are still available for purchase.


Until next time....Buzzz you later.

One Sheet Purse








Hello Hivers,

I've been on Pinterest again.  I found a video tutorial for making this cute purse.  It uses an entire 12 x 12 sheet of the Presents & Pinecones DSP.  I made a banner using the Triple Banner punch and Jar of Cheer stamp set to decorate the purse.  I added the bows using the Everyday Jar framelits.  I cut them out then stamped.  Sometimes I find that is easier with the small images.  Which way do you prefer to do things?









Until next time....Buzzz you later.

A Cheerful Season

Hello Hivers,

I was thinking of my grandmother when I made this card.  I seen various samples on Pinterest and I thought she would have loved to receive this on Christmas.  She is flying with angel wings amongst the stars.

I used the Gold Wink of Stella on this card.  I have been using the Clear so much, thought it would be a good idea to switch it up a bit.

Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Another SU! CASE




Hello Hivers,

This card, what can I say about it?  I seen it in a SU! publication and just had to make it.  You can't see it too well in the photo, but I hand cut out the word MERRY from the Jar of Cheer stamp set.  I love the pop of glimmer from the ribbon in the background and the Wink of Stella on the jar.  It just looks so elegant to me.  What are your thoughts on this card?

Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Joyful Note Card Boxed Set




Hello Hivers,

I have been very busy making Christmas cards.  My goal this holiday season is to use all the stamp sets that I purchased from the 2016 Holiday Catalog.  I'm doing a great job so far.

I made two sets of 6 cards for my daughter to give to her teachers.  I used the Tin of Tags, Star of Light, and Santa's Sleigh stamp sets on these note cards.  These are made using the Crumb Cake Note Cards & Envelopes.  I love all the bling on these cards.

           

Until next time....Buzzz you later.

A Jolly Christmas





Hello Hivers,

I CASE'd this card from Pinterest.  I had to change a few things because I didn't have all of the same supplies.  I loved that card so much I would have made it exactly the same.  I used the Star of Light stamp set to stamp the background.  The sentiment comes from the Father Christmas stamp set.  The Gold Foil just adds that special something to this card.



Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Tin of Presents and Scribbles






Hello Hivers,

These cards were so much fun to make.  I made two of each color.  Yes, I also made a box to store them in.  This DSP makes me so happy just by looking at it.  It just screams, "Lets Have Fun!"  You can't see it very well, but I used the Wink of Stella on the Swirly Scribble and sentiment.

Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Presents & Pinecones






Hello Hivers,

Quick and simple cards today.  I wanted the DSP to be more of the focal point.  I do love how the doily makes the sentiment stand out though.  I added some silver sequins just for the bling factor.

A Christmas Shaker

Hello Hivers,

I can't remember if I seen the inspiration for these cards on Pinterest or on someones blog.  Either way, just wanted to mention that it is not my original design.

I love using non-traditional colors for Christmas.  The Sweet Sugarplum is perfect for this project. As you can see below, I also used Emerald Envy for another two cards.  I made a matching box for these cards and I plan on giving them away as a gift.





Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Warm Wishes





Hello Hivers,

Have I told you lately how much I love the 2016 Holiday Catalog?  Well, I do!  Everything looks so great.  I have been working on ways to showcase the DSP.

Here I have made a card with a matching sour cream container type treat holder.  I love how all the pieces from the Pretty Pines thinlits layer together.  The sentiment on the card is from the Tin of Tags stamp set.  This stamp set, as you can see, is not just for making Gift Tags.

 


Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Christmas Magic Train



Hello Hivers,

I did a bit of water coloring on todays card.  After I stamped and colored everything, I used bleach to pull the color off the paper in the places where I wanted snow and/or smoke.  I used the bleach on the windows of the train, as well.  I think the Gold Wink of Stella would have looked awesome on this train.  I may have to make another card and try that.


Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Bells & Ornaments







Hello Hivers,

Well, you know me.  I couldn't make up my mind which color I wanted to use, so I just used both.  LOL  Which color do you prefer?

I love how quick and easy these cards were to make.  No stamping involved today.

Thanks for buzzzing by the Hive today.


Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Stars & Pretty Pines



Hello Hivers,


These cards were inspired by The Jolly Fat Elf.  I used the Layering Circles and Pretty Pines Framelits along with the Tin of Tags stamp set.  The starry background paper comes from he Presents & Pinecones DSP pack.  I think the stamped image and the DSP compliment each other very well.  As you can see from the photo, I made multiples of this card.  I went ahead and made a matching box to house the cards and envelopes.


Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Totally CASE'd

Hello Hivers,

HAPPY VETERANS DAY!

Pinterest has been my favorite place lately.  I found a very similar card there.  I just had to make my own version.  The Fancy Frost Sequins really adds that special something to these cards.  I'm thinking I should make a box to house these cards and give them away.  Sometimes I just want to keep my cards to look at them.  They are so pretty.  Can you see the Clear Wink of Stella on the Pine Boughs? Yes, I like all things that sparkle.  LOL


Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Paisley Birthday

Hello Hivers,

Let me start off by shouting HAPPY 16th BIRTHDAY!!!  to my second oldest child.

These two cards are basically the mirror image of each other.  I try to make subtle changes in each of my cards, especially since I know I will be making at least 2 of each card.  I used the Paisleys & Posies stamp set to stamp the background of the Night of Navy layer.  The sentiment comes from the Rose Wonder stamp set and I cut it out using the Rose Garden thinlits.  I, again, used the Paisley framelits for the Copper Foil dots.


 

Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Wonderful Candy Lane

Hello Hivers,

Todays card is a CASE from Pinterest.  I changed my sentiment and a few other elements.  I love the Candy Cane Lane DSP.  I cut out the images from one of the 12 x 12 sheets to add to this card.  It doesn't show very well in the picture, but I used the Clear Wink of Stella on all the cut outs.


Until next time....Buzzz you later.

You're The Best

Hello Hivers,

I know that Father's Day is not around the corner just yet, but that is what I had in mind when I designed these cards.  I really like the way they turned out.  I did use some retired SAB glitter tape on one of the cards.  I don't know if you notice but I did use the Paisleys Framelits on these cards.  It is very hard to spot.  But the large leafy looking die has some parts that most would discard.  I, however, decided they would look good on my projects.  Have you found them yet?

HINT:  They are die cut with the Copper Foil sheets.  They are the tiny circles on either side of the sentiment of two cards and the arrow looking thing at the bottom of the sentiment of the other card.


 

Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Petals & Paisleys Desk Accessories




Hello Hivers,

Just take a look at this gorgeous DSP.  This design is me second favorite in the pack.  I had a really hard time cutting into it.  LOL  I wanted to make something that would show it off.  I went searching on Pinterest and found a few tutorials for these cute desk accessories.  I have made a Post-It Note holder, Business Card Holder, and a Holder for my Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  
I added some card board to the inside of the side and front panels on the TIEF holder to add some stability.  

Sam H. (Pootles) has the instructions for two of my goodies and I can't remember where I found the tutorial for the Post-It Notes.  I think it was Angie J.  I watch so many videos, I don't always remember which version I decided to use.    


 

Until next time....Buzzz you later.

A Trio of Blessings



































Hello Hivers,

Today I am sharing 3 cards made with the same basic design.  I couldn't decide on a color so I used all three that I had in mind.  The Petals & Paisleys suite is one of my favorite in the 2016 Holiday Catalog.  The DSP has colors and designs that are suitable for both male and female.

I have included a pictures of each individual card, as well as the inside of the cards.  Let me know which color is your favorite.



Until next time....Buzzz you later.
