Floral Statements




Hello Hivers, 

These are the very first cards I have made using the Floral Statements stamp set.  I don't know why it took me so long to use it.  It is a gorgeous set.  I need to make a quick thank you card and this did the trick.  I used my stamping blocks again to make the background.  I don't think I spritzed enough water on the ink, causing the blotches, but I like the way it turned out.  
You can see on the second card below, I used more water and it wasn't so blotchy.  





Colors:
Balmy Blue
Pacific Point
Pool Party
Pineapple Punch
Grapefruit Grove
Call Me Clover
Soft Suede
Basic Black
Whisper White

Hello - Accented Blooms



Hello Hivers, 

This card was made using one of the new stamp sets, Accented Blooms, that will be available in the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog starting June 1, 2018.  It coordinates with the Tailored Tag Punch.  

I inked up one of my clear acrylic blocks using the Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral, and Rich Razzleberry Classic ink pads.  I spritzed it with a heavy mist of water before stamping onto my Whisper White cardstock to make this gorgeous background.  I stamped the floral image twice so that I could have some flowers to pop up.  You can't really see it, but I used the Clear Wink of Stella over the entire background.  

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

Share What You Love - Thank You




Hello Hivers, 

Here is my second set of thank you Narrow Note Cards, as promised.  I only made a very slight change in the design, but it was enough to give a total different look.  The white heat embossing on the Basic Black cardstock remind me of chalkboards, which I think is fitting, since these colors are mostly primary colors.  I decided to make more cards to add to this collection, one for each day of our 7 day cruise.  I will share those next week.  

Have you ordered your Share What You Love Bundle yet?  What are you waiting for?!  There is not much time left.  The bundles are only available until the last day of this month.  Don't miss out on getting your FREEBIES when you purchase the bundle.

Share What You Love




Hello Hivers, 

Today I am sharing cards I made to take with me on my 19th wedding anniversary cruise.  I plan on using them to hold the tips we give the room attendant and dining room waiter.  I made another set of 5 that I will share soon.  

I used the new 2018-2020 In Colors in creating these Thank You Narrow Note Cards.  The Love What You Do stamp set looks good in any color.  The thank you sentiment fits nicely in the Tailored Tag Punch.  I added some of the new Faceted Dots for a bit more interest.

Have you ordered your Share What You Love Bundle yet?  What are you waiting for?!  There is not much time left.  The bundles are only available until the last day of this month.  Don't miss out on getting your FREEBIES when you purchase the bundle.

Country Livin' Father's Day SBTD Blog Hop May 2018




Hello Hivers, 

Welcome to the monthly Stampers By The Dozen Blog Hop for the month of May.  This month our theme is focused on Mother's or Father's Day projects.  Since Mother's Day has already come and gone, I have decided to feature some Father's Day projects.





The main images on the projects are all from the Country Livin' stamp set.  The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings*.  The Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper* adds just the right touch of masculinity to these projects.  I used card sketches #21 and #25, by Dawn G., for my cards but I changed a few things to better fit my needs. (Click each title to see her original version.)










You all know that I had to make a 3D project.  I made a simple box that holds 2 chocolate bars.  Below the photos are the measurements for the box.






Box Measurements:
6-1/8" x 5.75"
Score long side at: 5/8", 2.75", 3-3/8", 5.5"
Score short side at: 5/8" and 5-1/8"
DSP:  2" x 4-3/8"


I hope you have enjoyed your visit to the Hive today.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Remember, this is a Blog Hop, the excitement continues...

Hop on over to Carly's blog...she is up next in the Blog Hop.

Happy Mother's Day



Hello Hivers, 

I want to wish all you wonderful mothers out there a Happy and Joyous Mother's Day!  

This is the card I created for the mother's in my life.  I love all the flowers.  The Sweet Soiree SDSP is a great paper pack if you love flowers.  I paired it with the Awesomely Artistic and Itty Bitty Greetings stamp sets.  Below is a photo of the inside of the card.  I used a sentiment from Picture Perfect Birthday for the inside and added a strip of the Specialty Designer Series Paper along the bottom.

Thought I would pop in a day early and share a Mother's Day card with you.  I made this card for a very special someone.  I hope she likes it.  

I used the New Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set for the sentiment and Awesomely Artistic stamp set for the background on the sentiment layer.  The gorgeous Specialty Designer Series Paper is Sweet Soiree.  If you look closely, you can see some the the SDSP peeking through from underneath the Silver Metallic Foil Doily.  

Color Combination:  
Sweet Sugar Plum 
Pink Pirouette 
Marina Mist
Silver

Here's a look at the inside.  That sentiment is from the Petal Palette stamp set.
