Feb 17, 2021 – Bee Thinking

Dull Glossy Paper, Frogs & Bugs, Thinking of You

Good Morning! I’ve been a busy bee making cards with our Bee stamps. I am hoping to send the images to the die cutting company to get cutting dies made but I also have book keeping to do today. We will see how far I get.

Coffee, Dull Glossy Paper

Happy Monday!

Here we used the mini coffee cup and the small coffee beans to fill a 4×5.25” swatch of dull glossy paper (click on link to see the paper on website). This was a fun way to create a background but did take a little while coloring all the little images. Click on the links below to see the stamps on our website.

I have had both covid vaccines (since a front line health care worker) and many of our patients have been getting them so maybe we are on our way to a new normal. MayBEE it will be a good year ahead!

alcohol ink, Dull Glossy Paper, Valentine's Day

Good Morning and happy Friday! Here is a quick card with the “wishing you” stamped on the front and the rest on the inside. Also, the flag stamp has three flags but we only used the largest one. White paper is dull glossy. Click on links below to see the stamps on our website.

Turtles – Feb. 8, 2021

Creatures, Dull Glossy Paper, Valentine's Day

Happy Monday! Here we used the triple flag across the top versus on the paper it was designed to go with. Wanted to show it can be used in multiple ways!

Below is what we used to create the splatter background. Put a few drops on a paint brush and tap glass container with brush over the paper. We use another piece of scrap paper to cover the container to prevent splatter on the surrounding area.

Retirement – Jan. 29, 2021

Bib Cards, Dull Glossy Paper, Retirement

Happy Friday! We have a retirement bib card this afternoon. This one is really easy to put together. We stamped the dotted circle first, then punched it out with a 1-3/4” circle punch, then stamped the coffee cup, and colored the cup with copic markers. For the overlay, we stamped and colored the coffee beans across the bottom and stamped the retirement saying above. Then glued the circle and overlay on the bib card and added ribbon. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Coffeeology – Jan. 28, 2021

Coffee, Dull Glossy Paper

Hello! We have another card today. The inspiration for this one came from Pinterest and now I can’t find the card but it had diagonal lines across with tiny hearts at each intersection. When I saw it, I thought of this Solid Heart and how I could adapt it. Still want to work with other variations but like how this one turned out.

Blessed – Jan. 28, 2021

Dull Glossy Paper, With Sympathy

Sometimes a sympathy card is needed unexpectedly. This one came together very quickly. We used dull glossy paper again so did allow for time to dry before coloring the flowers but still didn’t take long. The grass under the flower was created with a marker. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!

Hug in a cup – Jan. 22, 2021

Coffee, Dull Glossy Paper

Good morning and happy Friday! Here we used the hollyhock to decorate the coffee cup. We cut the flower and leaf out with scissors. The coffee cup has cutting dies and link is below. Have a wonderful weekend!
