Honey Comb Hello for WWYS

Hi Everyone,

I’ve got a fun little card to share with you today using the Honeycomb Hello Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!

IMG_3697

I wasn’t at all sure what I would do with this tiny little set so just started playing with little pieces that would fit into the Hexagon Hive Thinlit. I stamped all of the images in Black Memento Ink but before I did, I did a color wash of Daffodil Delight using my Aqua Painter in the background. The Chevron pattern was stamped onto scraps of white and cut to fit into one of the little Hexagon spots. For the black Hex’s I traced them using the thinlit and cut out and inserted. The full size dotted ones I just stamped into the area and the half size ones I used scraps and cut. The little hearts are just scattered through as well as the little Bee’s and “bee mine” saying. I was a busy little bee with this card….lol!!

clip_image001
I wanted my card to be sweet and for a Baby Girl. So I made it using the Baby’s First Framelit and Blush Blossom Card Stock and matching Designer Series Paper.
My Card Base is Whisper White and cut to 4 1/4 x 11. The White Mat is embossed with the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder about 23 of the way down. I left space for the soft and pretty dotted Designer Paper from the Subtle’s Paper Stack.
I did a double bow using our fabulous Seam Binding and using my hubby’s Magic Bow Maker available at the top of my blog.
Supplies needed:
I hope you enjoyed my card today. If you missed Patty’s Project on her Blog Please go here

WWYS 24

So let me tell you how I did this gorgeous butterfly. I stamped the largest background stamp in Crushed Curry and then used the outline stamp in Delightful Dijon. The center stamp in Black Memento really make all those colors pop!! Y’all know I love black and white with a pop of color. lol

Don’t’ you love this Designer Paper? It’s the Go Wild Designer Paper Stack on page 144 of the big catalog. It’s truly one of my fav’s this year. It comes in 6x6 pieces and is just enough to add some to a card and use your Envelope Liner Framelit to jazz up your envelope. I love it when things match like that. I think it kicks it up a few notches when you line your envelope. Don’t you?

The background of my white mat is stamped with the speckled stamp from Gorgeous Grunge (a must have) and done in black and the yellow tones. Really ties it in I think.

As you see I added a few Rhinestones to the Butterfly and the saying as my finishing touches.

Oh and I had a tiny strip of the designer paper left that I added to the inside of the card too. I just had snippets left……love that!!!

Don’t forget the Watercolor Wings comes with a fabulous Framelit to cut out those gorgeous butterflies. So easy!!!

Supplies needed:

If I can help you with any of your stamping needs please don’t hesitate to ask. I’d love to help!

Have a wonderful day and stamp something fun today. Hopefully with WWYS!

Sea Street for WWYS

 

wwys cropped

Hi Everyone!

Today I’m stamping with the What Will You Stamp Team. We get to use the fun and fabulous Sea Street Stamp Set

sea street

For My Card I used some of the Heavy Weight Whisper White Card Stock for the base…love how my card just stand at attention now!

I decided to go a little different with this one and do the banners across the top. I first Stamped in Black and then stamped on scraps of Paper in Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point, Cucumber Crush, and Daffodil Delight. I then cut our the little flags and added to the top of the stamped image.

I then decided to curve the edge and stamp the cute little crabs along the bottom…I like how that came out. Don’t you? I then did a Happy Birthday from the Happy Birthday Everyone (a Hostess Set) and pop it up in the center of the card. I taped the mat to the Pacific Point mat and cut around the curves with my paper snips to match it up and taped it to my card base. Ta Da!! Isn’t it fun???
