Christmas In July: Honey Bee Stamps Sale

Hello Crafters!

We made it to Friday!
Whoo hoo!

I plan to craft my little heart out all weekend.
I did get a bit of an early start but for a very good reason!

There's a sale and it's a really good one. :)

Even though the sale is called Christmas in July sale there is a ton of stuff for fall, flowers, and shape dies on sale too. 

Click the link to head over and check out the sale! 
Everything I used on today's card is part of the sale. 



I started with a completely different idea for the background but didn't end up loving it. However, it did give me an idea for a future card so definitely not a loss. 

I ended up doing an emboss resist with some sparkly glitter embossing powder. Anything glitter is a win for me :) I used salty ocean distress oxide to create a soft blend of color which fades to white at the bottom. 


I stamped out all my snowmen and their accessories in copic safe ink and got to coloring. It went really fast with just a few colors to use. I knew I wanted to use red as my POP of color because it looks so striking with the black and white.  


Once the coloring was done I stamped my sentiment in a bold black before busting out my die cutting machine. I die cut all my colored images out, the sentiment, and this fun rectangle trio die. 


I adhered all my snowman with their bodies peaking out of the frame on top and glued behind on the bottom. This makes them look like they are popping out of the frame and I love it! I added all the images and frame with foam tape to my background panel. The sentiment was glued to the frame with a bit of foam adhesive on the bottom to make it level. 


Last I added some shimmer, because as we previously discussed, I need it. A few iridescent sequins filled in the empty space and brought some attention to the sentiment. 

I will have a video for this one guys I just ran out of time so hang tight ;)
It should be up tonight. 

I also wanted to share a few other cards I've made with some other products on sale in case you need ideas! 


Oh My Whiskers is on sale! You can see the original post with video here. 


The Silent Night set is actually a Christmas set but switching up the stamps I paired it with changes it to a spring card! You can see the original post with video here. 


This card uses the same rectangle frame I used today but with the Winter Anemone. I used the Fa La La Stamps and dies but another sentiment would make this card work for any occasion. 
You can see the original post with video here. 

I hope that gives you a little bit of extra inspiration!

Thanks so much for dropping in. 
See you soon!

  1. I loved everything about this card!Thanks for the highlight tip on the hat, now I know why mine never looked quite right.
    So sorry that your adventure didn't end well and that Charlie wasn't a fit with your family...you are so smart to wait for the right one!

  2. Gorgeous card, what a fun bunch of snowmen. It's a pity that Charles is not the right dog for your family. Fortunately, you are not impatient and you wait until the right dog comes for you. I hope for you all that that is soon. Thanks for your gorgeous card video and story. Have a great weekend.
