Merry Patterns and Quilted Christmas





Hello Hivers, 

Today's cards are a CASE of one I seen on Pinterest.  I switched up a few things, but it's pretty much the same.  I love all the colors together.  I have to be honest, when I first seen the Merry Patterns stamp set, I wasn't impressed.  Now that I have it, I can't stop using it.  I love it.  I'm sad that it's no longer available.  

So...What do you think of my cards?  Do you like them or do you love them?  :)

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.



As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today. 
Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Christmas Pines & Merry Music DSP







Hello Hivers,

I've been playing around with this split card design. I am really loving it.  These two sets of cards are made the same with two minor differences...one is made with Whisper White cardstock with a Metallic Foil Doily and the other is Crumb Cake with a Foil Snowflake.  They both have the Merry Music DSP and the Gold 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon that has been colored to match the Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #6




Hello Hivers, 

Here's a fun card made using two of our InColors; Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.  

The acetate and under layer both came from the Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack.  I added some paper from the Eastern Palace SDSP, a silver Foil Snowflake, and some Berry Burst ribbon to finish off this card.

Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #5







Hello Hivers, 

I know the Merry Patterns Host stamp set is no longer available...but it is so cute.  I will be using it until after Christmas or a bit longer :)  The candles in this set are great for birthday cards.  

I stamped the deer in Whisper White Craft ink and the outline is in Early Espresso.  I love the shine that the Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon gives this card.  

My second card uses elements from the Card Front Builder Thinlits.  After I made the card, I had a little chuckle.  The deer look like they are lined up to run a race.  LoL  That was not my intention but I love the way the card turned out.

Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #4



Hello Hivers, 

Today I am sharing a project that I CASE'd from the Holiday Catalog (pg. 14).  In the catalog it was part of a scrapbook page.  I turned the design into a card.  The Annual and Holiday Catalogs are great resources for inspiration.   Be sure to look at all the samples provided while making your wish list of our great products.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #3





Hello Hivers, 

OMG!  I just love this image from the Seasonal Chums stamp set.  This little reindeer is super cute.  I told you...cuteness overload, right?!  When I seen this card in the Memories & More card pack, I knew right away what I wanted to do with it.  I wish the Wink of Stella would show up better on the photos.  They are so stunning in person.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #1



Hello Hivers, 

This week is going to be all about the Merry Little Christmas Memories and More Card Pack.  This card pack is meant to be used for scrapbooking.  I am not a scrapbooker (I tried).  I decided to use the pack to make Christmas cards.  You can see that just by changing the DSP and background colors, you can get very different looks.  


Some of the products used:

Christmas Around the World DSP
Merry Music Specialty DSP
Glitter Enamel Dots
Layering Circles Framelits
Silver Glimmer Paper




As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today. 
Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Merry Music Boxed Set of Cards







Hello Hivers, 


I went all in this year.  I have been creating cards like crazy.  I've seen so many wonderful cards on Pinterest...You know I had to make them for myself.  Today's projects are no exception.

As always, I have made a few changes to my cards to make them my own.  

I used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper, Foil Snowflakes, and the 3/8" Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon on both boxed sets.  

The Wisteria Wonder cards were created with the Christmas Pines stamp set and some retired SAB ribbon.  The Pink Pirouette cards used the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, also with retired ribbon. 

To change the color of the 3/8" Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon, I spritzed it with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and re-inker.  It only took about 5 minutes to dry and none of the color rubbed off.   

I used the Acetate Card Boxes #144628 to box up all the cards and envelopes.  Only four cards could fit in the box because of all the dimension.  


As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today. 
Until next time....Buzzz you later.
