2023 Jan-April Mini Catalog Feed

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop Final Look at Mini


Welcome to our Team Blog Hop!  This month's theme has us reflecting on the retiring January - April 2024 Mini Catalog.  There are so many great items that will be going away after April 30th so that is what we are sharing.

I had to go with the Gold Foiled Flowers Cards & Envelopes.  These are an absolute favorite of mine.  They are actually from the Forever Love Suite Collection (see links below) but you can always order the cards & envelopes separately.  

I'm sharing 3 Different ways I have used the cards:

1.)  Random coloring with Stampin' Blends

  • I used Lemon Lolly and Old Olive blends
  • Die cut pieces (labels and leaves) are from the Thoughtful Expressions Bundle
  • Embellished with the retiring Brushed Metallic Dots

2.)  Highlight coloring with Blending Brushes

  • I used the regular and small blending brushes and inks; Fresh Freesia, Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green
  • Use the brushes again to color the Paper Butterflies (ANOTHER RETIRING FAVORITE); Fresh Freesia, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather
  • Embellish again with the Brushed Metallic Dots

3.) Not using the Gold Foiled Flowers card as the Card Base

  • I cut the foiled card in half then down to 4-1/8 x 5-3/8
  • Mount onto Basic Black CS
  • Layered the Thoughtful Expressions Dies and kept everything black including the Black Paper Butterfly!!!

Product List

Share A Milkshake

Who doesn't love a good milkshake? Especially on a warm summer day. 

This adorable bundle is called Share a Milkshake and has so many cute features about it; I'll list a few of my favs below.  Let's take a look at my card first. 

#stampwithlisabrown #shareamilkshake

I used Polished Pink card stock for my card base.  And Polished Pink Ink for two of the ice cream scoops (stamp off on scrap paper to create a lighter shade) and for sponging the background color.  Soft Succulent ink makes the milkshake glass and also Pale Papaya and Mint Macaron for the other ice cream scoops. 

Stampin' Dimensionals are perfect to create and show off the different layers on this one.  Don't forget about our Mini Dimensionals for those cherries!

Here Are My Favorite Details of the Share A Milkshake Bundle:

  • two-step stamped glass
  • the spoon die cut
  • the honeycomb die
  • ice cream scoop details  (you can make like a fizzy soda!)
  • ice cream scoop die... cuts a slip for straw or spoon

Product List

Delicate Desert Suite


I have to share, the Delicate Desert Bundle is not a first pick for me.  WHAT?  I can't believe I'm saying that but it is true.  I am your typical floral, pretty designs, pretty colors kinda a girl.  But let me tell you, I LOVE the designer papers in the Delicate Desert Suite Collection.  There are 2 and they are called Dry Brushed Metallic and Delicate Desert DSP

But fear not!  There is a pretty cactus flower in this stamp set, I'll have to share that another day soon.

You have to see the shimmer and shine of the "Dry Brushed Metallic 12 x 12 Specialty Designer Series Paper"

Nested Friends Reminds Us Of Spring

Its almost that time of year... more sunshine, things coming back to life like tree buds and plants and wild life.  There is nothing like the sound of baby birds chirping in the springtime!  And this stamp bundle reminds me of just that.  

Here is a card that you can use for so many occasions made with the NESTED FRIENDS stamp and die bundle:

#nestedfriends #stampwithlisabrown #creativecardcloset

I combined Granny Apple Green and Tahitian Tide card stock for the base and mats.  The dies include these awesome little leaves that emboss too, giving amazing detail.  I wanted those a little darker so I cut from Old Olive card stock. 

My bird is resting in her nest!  I used my Paper Snips and Foam Mat to cut a slit into the nest and inserted her tail feathers through the slit.

Here's a close up to see her sitting in her nest, but also take a look at the background.  There is a speckled stamp in which I stamped the whole white background with before embossing with the HIVE 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER (which you can earn for FREE when you order the Nested Friends bundle or any $50 product purchase until Feb. 28, 2023).  Note:  The Sale-a-Bration Hive folder item # 164424

Creative Fold With Fancy Flora Suite Collection

Fancy Flora Suite Collection:  two stamp sets, two die sets, ribbon, embellishments, Fine Shimmer paper and 6x6" paper stack, it has everything! 

I managed to get a little bit of everything into my project.  This is one of those where one photo just would not capture it all.  My favorite part, besides the Fine Shimmer paper, is carrying the design on the inside!
