Beehive Sketch

Inspired by Amy’s triple play on the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

I used triple hexagons to make a sweet hive creation for The Greetery’s “ Honey Bees!” 

Also used “Buzz-worthy Sentiments,” “BotaniCuts:Wildflower Mix,” and “Honey Jar,” along with some other mini flowers and Hero Arts’ “Fancy Hexagons Die” impressed into the background!

Thanks for buzzzzzing by! 🐝

Summer Harvest Throwdown

I adore the color combination at the Color Throwdown  this week…powder blue, cream, and kraft…

I decided to make a warm and sunny card, inspired by the wheat fields I pass by every morning! 

I used products from The Greetery for this card including: “Jumbo Curiosity: Dragonfly,” “Leaves All Around,” “Tartan Builder Diagonal,” “BotaniCuts: Wheat,” a sentiment from “Bountiful Wreath,” and a mini flower die from the 2022 Anniversary stencil set. I just love this time of year!

Thanks for stopping by! 💙

Beach Tiers Fusion

I was so inspired by this “Beach Tiers” photo at the Fusion Card Challenge! It reminded me of my days growing up at the Jersey Shore, and our upcoming vacation to LBI!

I got out some new and old favorites from Papertrey Ink and the Greetery including (PTI) “ Salt Air: Flora,” “ Salt Air: Fauna,” “Sand Swatch,” “Just Sentiments: A Happy Hello” and  (The Greetery) “Curio: Divider and Details” (1). “Curii: Summer Findings,” “Pretty Postmarjs,” and “Create-a-Crate.”

I was inspired by the beach items and theme, stars, neutral and muted colors, with pops of green leaves!

So much fun to create, thank you for stopping  by!

Spellbinders for Christmas!

I am so excited to share a card featuring amazing new products from Spellbinders Paper Arts! They just released two beautiful new collections for the holidays.

How amazing is the new “Ice Skate” die from the Winter Garden Collection?! Had me reminiscing about days when I sat glued to the TV watching the Olympics. I had a Dorothy Hamill doll in 1976, and practiced layback spins and double axels in the middle of our living room in the 80’s (getting big laughs, but no applause 😂 from my Mom and sisters)! 

I paired the skate with the new “Stylized Merry Christmas” die from the Celebrate the Season Collection. The gold accents perfectly match their beautiful “Cheerful Occasions” paper pack. I topped my skates with a sweet “Mini Bow!” 

I can’t wait to give this one to my sister this Christmas! Be sure to visit Spellbinders Paper Arts to see more of these amazing holiday collections!

Fusion Card’s Hello Hat!

Playing along with the Fusion Card Challenge this week, with this sweet hat door decor as inspiration…

I was also inspired by Betsy Veldman’s bee card for the “Sweet & Sunny” release…

She paired the largest bee from the “Honey Bees” die set with the “AlphaBuds Bold Floral Details” dies and stamps!  I used the “Leaves All Around” stencils for my background, and a sentiment from The Stamp Market’s “Have a Nice Day” stamp set. I love botanical labels and these sets are perfect to recreate them in all kinds of styles!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy 700th Throwdown!

The Color Throwdown is celebrating challenge #700! How DO they come up with so many inspiring ones?!

This week is yellow, orange, kraft , and brown! I almost went with a fall theme, but remembered The Greetery’s “Print Shop: Peachy Keen!”

Also used The Greetery’s “Create a Crate” dies, a sentiment from “Destination: Summer,” and some new items including a bee from “Honey Jar” and sweet blooms cut with “BotaniCuts: Hollyhocks!”  

Thank you for always inspiring me Color Throwdown!
