Honeycomb Hello- Stampin’ Up!

Honeycomb Hello- Stampin’ Up!

Today I took a little hiatus from Christmas crafting and jumped into a pile of stamps that haven’t seen any love in a long time.

 

I needed to feel a bit of Spring. Almost like getting a little fresh air.  I felt snowed in.  Ha ha ha.

 

I have a ton of stamps sitting and waiting to be used and I’ve been heavily concentrated on all things holidays.

 

I also have a stack of designer series paper that needed some love too.  Beautiful papers just screaming to be USED.

Honeycomb Hello is a series of tiny images that are just cute as a bug.  Well.. a bee.  How cute is that tiny bee?

 

I love that I had designer paper to match- English Gardens.

 

I really got in my groove and made a few more than I normally do. I used different patterns of the paper for each of the cards.

I love that stamped images brings the  focus to that one little die cut label.  Adding the Tea Lace Doily made it frilly which in turn made me happy.

Tip: On Page 151 at the top of the Idea Book & Catalog you will see a Tag a Bag Accessories.  Inside this kit are smaller doilies.  They are perfect for this little card as I could keep to my “small” theme and they wrapped around the label perfectly.  This kit is $8 and worth every penny.  

 

The English Garden Designer Series Paper has a beautiful watercolor look and lots of beautiful colors to coordinate with.

It was good to take a Christmas crafting break today so I could take in a little early Spring action.  I know we have barely started Winter and here I’m ready to just skip on over it.

I’ll be back tomorrow with another crafty Christmas card.  Meanwhile I am going to bask a bit more in my Spring sunshine and bees.
