Honey Bee Stamps Blog Hop Birthday Anniversary!!

Hi and welcome to Honey Bee Stamps 1st birthday blog hop!!!  
Thanks for joining us on our week long birthday celebration! Today all of the design team are featuring the brand new stamp set “Happy Everything” with a sweet little kit put together by designer Lisa Cisneros. We have lots planned for you this week and of course lots of prizes! Just leave a comment on our designer’s blogs along your hop for your chance to win!
You should have arrived here from Kendra's Blog, but if not click here to start at the beginning!
I chose to go with a clean and simple card today using the paper, twine and embellishments from the adorable kit. The sentiment is from the adorable Happy Everything set that can be used for just about anything and will be a great set to reach for all of the time.
Once all of my paper and twine were placed where I wanted I used the hearts from the kit to scatter from the bottom left corner up towards the sentiment. I added my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to each of the hearts to make them pop. I sprinkled a few clear sequins around them for added interest.
I finished the card off by rounding the left upper corner with my We R Memory Keepers corner rounder. I think it turned out so adorable!
We are very excited about this blog hop celebration and hope you can join us on our Facebook event page, Instagram and showing love on each design team members blog. The order of the the blog hop is below. Click on each name to be directed to their blogs.

Thanks For Being There

Hello friends! 

I am here today to share a card using products from the new Create A Smile April Release. You will swoon over all of the new sets. We have sentiments, flowers and an adorable hippo that will make you smile for sure!

I stamped each flower outline using Memento Jet Black ink. The insides of the flower were stamped using three different colors of ink. I love the green, orange and yellow together. 

I die cut the new thanks die using black card stock. The sentiment below is from the Mini Thanks set and stamped using Versamark ink and melted with white embossing powder. I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen over the word thanks to give it a little shimmer. 

The new release will be available on Friday, April 15 at 10am CET (3pm EST). Check out the blog here for more information. Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great evening!

Thank You For All You Do

Good morning friends! I am here to share a card for the new Sunday Stamps Challenge that starts today. The design team was given a sketch to use to create our cards. I have to say that everyone did an amazing job on this challenge. All of the cards are stunningly beautiful! 

I used new stamps and inks from Altenew to create my card for you today. 

I love this flower and leaves from the Peony Bouquet set. I will admit that I've been a little nervous about using these type of stamp sets. I didn't know how use all of the different layers but with their inks it makes it so much easier. 

I used Evergreen, Forest Glades and Frayed Leaf to create the ombre background which turned out beautiful! I used Jet Black ink along with the same green inks to create the leaves. The flower was created with Jet Black as the outline and Frosty Pink, Coral Berry and Cotton Candy. I used the biggest oval in the Scallop Ovals from Pretty Pink Posh to die cut a piece of white paper. The sentiment is from another Altenew set called Many Thanks. I stamped both on black card stock using Versamark ink and melting white embossing powder using my heat tool. A piece of tissue paper from my stash was used as my banner from the sketch. I finished it off using a few 6mm Clear Droplets and Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to give some bling. 

I will be practicing my stamp layering using these flowers and different colors of ink to make more flowers. I hope you've been inspired by my card today and will join our challenge. It will end on Friday, April 22 at 6pm so you have plenty of time to create something wonderful. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
