Little Bees how many of us own stamps of bugs...and love them...however if we see the real thing we completely freak out? Yeah you know it is I know I am terrified of real bugs, but I love the stamps. Which is one of the reasons I picked these cute little bees from Biblical Impressions. See...cute...but the real thing would make me freak. These are actually 2 different stamps. The Honeybee comes in 2 stamps so you can get him facing either direction. I stamped them off on cream CS, and fussy cut them out. Next I layered them onto some floral PP from my stash. For this one, I used some cream ribbon scraps and added a knot. Then layered the bees on using pop-dots. For this one, I used a sticker for a sentiment, and then pop-dots to put the bees on.

Both very simple, but they are actually gift enclosure size (3x3). Perfect for a summer gift!

Baby Animals

Hi there. Today I wanted to CAS card I made using the adorable Baby Animals stamp from Eureka Stamps. This is such a cute image for a baby card. Sorry the color is a little off. I took the photo outside, and it was starting to rain, so I had to make it "snappy" Anyway...I stamped the image and colored with watercolor crayons. Then I fussy cut it out and glued onto a piece of solid peach PP. For the base, I used the other side of the peach PP and layered onto a white CS base. I added some ribbon and some homemade crocheted flowers.

That is all for now! Have a great Monday!

For my card I decided to use the Lg. Dragonfly stamp. I think dragonflies are pretty neat...well at least the ones that you can ink up and stamp. Not going to lie, the real ones freak me I stamped this guy onto cream CS, and trimmed it down. Next, I stamped the wings again on silver metallic paper, and paper pieced the wings onto the first dragonfly. Then I colored his body with green colored pencil, and added some smootch to it. Next i layered onto some green polka dot PP, and brown CS. I also added some cream ribbon. For the sentiment, I used a sticker.

Eureka Stamps Blog Hop - Butterflies

Hi there, and welcome to the Eureka Stamps Butterfly Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Jessica B's blog, then you are on the right path. If this is your first stop, please head back to the main company blog, and start the hop from the top! This time around we are featuring some of the gorgeous butterfly stamps available at the Eureka Stamps Store. For my card, I chose the Butterfly Background Stamp.

I stamped this image onto black CS using Versamark ink, and then embossed with sticky powder. Next I used the rainbow rub-on foil on the butterflies. I love the look it gives. Such a simple thing to do, but such pretty results. Next I trimmed down the black CS, and layered onto some yellow CS, and then onto a cream CS base. For the sentiment, I used a sticker.

Well that is all from me. Head on over to...

...and see what beautiful butterfly creation she has for you! Thanks for hopping!

Flower Thank Yous

Well I shared some Thank Yous I made using one of the Eureka Stamps, so now I will share the ones I made using the adorable Single Ribbon Flower Stamp from Biblical Impressions. For this one, I used the same purple and cream CS and some purple ink. (Can you tell purple is my favorite color?) I simply stamped the image in the corners, and added a sticker for the sentiment.
I was going to color the roses, but I am really into the non-colored look right now. Now I need to get to work helping my DD write all these notes!

Ladybug Thank Yous

Hello there. Happy Monday. Over the weekend, my youngest DD had her birthday party. So I needed some Thank Yous for her to send to her friends. I have been trying to use up supplies in my craft room, so I pulled out these pre-cut purple and cream papers again. (Yes I still have I trimmed the cream CS to fit on the purple CS. Then I used the Ladybug Border stamp from Eureka Stamps and purple ink.
For the sentiment, I used a marker and hand wrote the Thank You. Very simple, but perfect for my DD to send to her friends. Thanks for stopping by!
