Under the Sea Blog Hop With Honey Bee Stamps


 Good morning, Honey Bee friends! There has been a lot of excitement happening over the past week. You've seen sneak peeks of some pretty amazing new Honey Bee Stamps products. Today we are celebrating with a fun blog hop featuring cards using all of those new products that are now available HERE in the Honey Bee Stamps Shop. 

For my card today I'm using the new and oh so adorable set, Under the Sea, along with a sentiment from the Ocean Bliss set.


I started with a white card panel that measures 4 x 5.25". Along the bottom of the panel I added a strip of double sided tape and then sprinkled the new Desert Oasis Sand. Next, I stamped all of my images in black ink and then colored them in with Copic markers. To finish it off, I attached a few Natural Abalone Shells.

To celebrate this new release, Honey Bee Stamps will be giving away two $50 gift certificates to purchase new goodies in their Store.
All you have to do to win is comment on the Honey Bee Stamps blog and at each one of the designer’s blogs by Sunday, July 16th. Winners will be announced on Monday, July 17th at Noon PST.
Here's the list of designers that you need to visit:

Happy Hopping!

Where Creativity Meets C9 - Challenge #11 - Embossing


It's time for the next Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge. Do you do a lot of embossing? I don't, so this month was certainly a challenge for me. I chose to do a little heat embossing for today and used Concord & 9th's Lily stamp set to work with. 

To begin, I cut 4 strips of colorful card-stock for my image to sit on. After stamping and embossing my Lily, I attached the image to the front of my card base using dimensional foam. My sentiment is also from the Lily stamp set. To complete it, I added a few colorful and clear sequins around my flower and sentiment. Sweet, simple and colorful!


Ok friends, it's your turn now. Time to pull out all of  your embossing tools and get busy. I can't wait to see what you create. Be sure to post it to the Where Creativity Meets C9 page before July 28th for your chance to win a gift certificate to Concord & 9th.

Happy creating!

Essentials by Ellen - Pin-Sights Challenge - You Are Fabulous





Let's just all admire the photos above for awhile! I mean look at those beautiful colors. Not a chance I could pass up creating a card for this month's Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge




I used the Bold Blooms stamps and dies + watercolors to make my flowers and leaves colorful. My sentiment was created with a mix of the Totally Fabulous dies and the Totally Awesome stamp set. And to finish it, I added a few sequins and a bit of white twine. 

Thanks for popping in today. Wishing you a happy day!

CardMaker + Prickley Pear Blog Hop



Happy Friday to you! We are ending the week with a special blog hop featuring Prickley Pear. You should have arrived here from the blog of Sharon Smith. Incase you get lost along the way, you can find the full list of hoppers on the CardMaker blog


For my card today, I used the sweet Bold Daisies image. I kept my card clean and simple, with a white card base and colorful flowers. I simply stamped the daisies three times across the bottom of my card and colored them in with Copic markers. The centers of the daisies are bare, but I wanted to add a little something to them and decided to pull out my black Zig pen. So simple to create a design, yet adds so much to the flowers. 


To complete my card, I stamped the Life Is Not About sentiment just above my flowers and a few sequins randomly around both the flowers and sentiment. 

Prickley Pear is hosting a giveaway on their blog for a $20 gift certificate to their online store. Be sure to stop by and see how you could enter for a chance to win!

Your next stop in the hop is Tracie Clary. 

Thanks so much for visiting with me today. Enjoy your day and happy hopping!
