Thank you for BUZZING IN, I couldn’t be happier to have you visit!

Before you know it the 2021-22 Annual catalog will be here! For me (and probably lots of demonstrators) it is a time of mixed emotions. On the one hand there is so much excitement about all the new stamps, ink and paper on the other you have to say good bye to all the stamps, ink and paper you love in the current catalog.

I wanted to take one more look at my favorite suite in the whole catalog, Forever Greenery. It was the first item on my must have list. The colors are just make me so happy- most especially Pretty Peacock. Not to mention the entire suite is very versatile so much so that everyone would enjoy a card made from it. Don’t forget the gold laser cut paper and coordinating reversible ribbon. Queue sniffle and tear.

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop-Marching into Spring

Click the image to view the supplies to make this card.

Thank you for BUZZING IN, I couldn’t be happier to have you visit!

Spring to me is a time of coming out of my winter cocoon and spreading my wings. Nothing could exemplify this more than the butterfly. If you haven’t guessed it butterflies are particularly meaningful for me…I did name my blog “Chasing Paper Butterflies” after all.

Gray Granite is the base (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches) followed by a layer of Magenta Madness (4 x 5 1/4 inches) and finally a layer of Peony Garden paper. Doesn’t those peonies provide a perfect back drop!

To make the eye catching butterflies I used the Butterfly Beauty dies and the coordinating foil from the Love You Always Foil Paper then glued the cropped image to a piece of BUTTERFLY BIJOU designer series paper that will be available TOMORROW (I am so excited to share this with you-see below for more details). Fussy cut the image out and adhere to the card. Choose a sentiment to stamp on a scrap of Gray Granite and cut a ribbon end.

Anniversary/Love/Valentine's/Wedding, Handmade Cards, We BEE Stamping Team Blog Hop

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop-Love Is In the Air

Click the image to view the supplies to make this card.

Thank you for BUZZING IN, I couldn’t be happier to have you visit! This last year has really shown me how important my relationships have been. You know they say the heart grows fonder with absence except it grew as well for those I have been spending most of my time with- my family.

I made this card thinking of my daughter Sidney as it is so very much her personality- light, soft and quietly beautiful. Ok maybe not so “quiet”, she is 11! I also like this for an anniversary card which is one type of card I am always needing but don’t seem to have on hand.

Start this card by cutting a full sheet of Blushing Bride at the 4 1/4 mark on the short side. Fold in half and crease. Normally, I do not score but with this cardstock it seemed much crisper to do so.

Build the front layer first with Very Vanilla 4×5 1/4 then with the Love You Always Speciality Designer Series Paper 3 3/4×5. Wrap the bottom 1/3 with 2 layers of Scalloped Lace Trim and adhere to the base with Stampin’ Seal or Stampin’ Seal Plus.

Crop the sentiment background in Very Vanilla and the Always in the Blushing Bride sheet from the Love You Always Foil. I used adhesive sheet on the back of the foil to make applying to the background easier but Tom Bow is also an option. Adhere to the lace with dimensionals. **TIP** put Stampin’ Seal under the lace where you will add the sentiment to keep it secure as the heaviness of the sentiment will cause the lace to move.

On the inside we have another Very Vanilla 4×5 1/4 that is stamped with a sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Blushing Bride and adhere with Stampin’ Seal.

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop- Sale-A-Bration

Click the image to order the supplies to make this card.

Thank you for BUZZING IN, I couldn’t be happier to have you visit! Happy New Year, I am so thankful that 2021 has just begun. Not only it is a whole new begining fresh and full of possiblities BUT it is SALE-A-BRATION (also known as SAB) time. To kick it off right above is a card featuring 2 fun items you can earn for FREE. Keep reading to find out how you can earn these specialy created items.

First let me tell you how this card is made:

  1. Create an A4 size card base using the paper trimmer and Bermuda Bay Cardstock. Cut the long side at 5 1/2 inches then fold one of the two pieces in half with the fold on the left side. **This card is quick and easy, perfect to make two at a time.**
  2. Trim the Oh So Ombre designer series paper (DSP) to 2 1/2 x 5 inches and cut a tag edge.
  3. Line up the DSP on the card base and use a pencil to mark the edge. This will be your guide to stamp the background leaves.
  4. Using the leaves from the Positive Thoughts stamp, an E block and Garden Green Ink stamp along the lines you drew in step three. Don’t forget to change the direction of the stamp and stamp multiple times to get a natural look with dimesion.
  5. Load up the Happy Birthday! Sentiment from the Approaching Perfection SAB set on a C block and in Garden Green stamp the inside of the card. Add some more leaves for a coordinating accent. See the photo below.

6. Next we will create the front sentiment, I used Whisper White but Basic White is replacing that cardstock. Color “perfection” in with the Garden Green Stampin’ Write and the rest of the sentiment with the Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write. Use the Huffing technique to moisten the ink. Not sure how to do this technique, check it out here.

7. Crop the sentiment with the Tasteful Labels dies. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. See photo below.

Thank you for BUZZING IN, I couldn’t be happier to have you visit!

With everyone who is creatively finding ways to connect with friends and family these gorgeous hand crafted gift card holders will be a go to item! Shout out to Su Mohr who originally posted the design of the card holder.

Make a card holder yourself:

  1. Cut a 8 1/2″ X 11″ piece of cardstock down to 7 3/4 x 11- save that “scrap” for a belly band.
  2. Cut along the long side at the 5 inch mark and score at 6″ and 2 1/2″.  Save that “scrap” for the other belly band.
  3. The bands are scored at 6 1/8″ and 2 1/2″. You want that extra 1/8 inch on the scoring, so the band will slide off and on easily.
  4. Cut a pieces of Designer Series Paper 4 3/4 x 12. Trim this piece so that you have 2 of each. Top= 1 1/2 wide, Bottom= 2 1/4 wide, Envelope liner= 2 1/2 wide. There should be none left over.
  5. Cut a piece of cardstock for the inside 1 1/2 by 4 3/4. I used scrap.
  6. Adhere all cut pieces to the holder base and punch or die a notch to remove the card.
  7. Decorate your belly band with a coordinating image.
