You Make My Heart Buzz

This cute card was a Free Make-n-Take!

Hello there.  And thank you for stopping by.   Yes, I did a Free Make-n-Take card at a recent event where I was a vendor.  I normally do that so people can see how easy it is to create a card in just a short time.  Make sure to check out my calendar for upcoming events and classes. 

I am happy as the bee in my below project... but a little sad too. Why? 

Well, our Last Chance Sale started and running through the end of April 2024.  I am happy because the Bee Builder Punch and Bee My Valentine Photopolymer stamp set are both carrying over into the new 2024-2025 Annual Catalog.  

So why am I sad?  Because the stamp set and punch will only bee (lol!) sold separately... meaning no bundle discount AND the Bee Mine 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper will retired along with the Hearts & Flowers Embellishments.  So that means that suite collection will be gone.

Let's take a look at this little Bee Card... 

#creativecardcloset #beemine #lisabrown

  • I used Daffodil Delight for my card base and stamped the honeycombs all around the edges of the card.  
  • Stamped my sentiment in the bottom left of Basic White CS measuring 3-3/4 x 5
  • Layered two pieces of the Bee Mine DSP measuring 2 x 3
  • Use a Dimensional to pop up the bee that was stamped & punched from Daffodil Delight CS, add a flower embellishment to finish it off

A Good Man


Stampin' Up! has released a few of these stamp sets with line-sketch images and I just love them.  "A Good Man" stamp set has some very sweet images and is perfect for the masculine cards we always seem to be seeking. 

My background layer is Smokey Slate and is cut 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 and I randomly stamped the image all over.  I wanted the background image to stand out just a bit so I used my White Watercolor pencil to and color the man's t-shirt.  It was just that little bit of pop I was looking for.  Because of the Whisper White Baker's Twine, I adhered the Smokey Slate card stock piece to the NEW Seaside Spray card stock base with Dimensionals. 

For the Stitched Nested Label Dies, the larger one is 2-3/8 x 4-5/16 and I used it to cut a piece of the New 2019-2021 In-Color 6x6 Designer Series Paper in Seaside Spray.  The smaller label die, used to cut Whisper White card stock, is 2-1/16 x 3-13/16.  I stamped the image with Black Memento Ink and colored with Watercolor pencils and blended with Blender Pens to smooth out. 

The circles are from the Layering Circle Framelit Dies and I chose 1-3/8" and 1-1/8" sizes.  

Hope you liked this masculine card and make sure to check out the New 2019-2021 In-Colors.  They are so pretty.  The 6x6 paper stack is a great way to have all the New In-Color options in designer paper.

Enjoy Life


This has easily become my favorite card! The swipes of colors make it look like an amazing sunset, or I suppose a sunrise. 

The Enjoy Life stamp set has some great inspirational phrases and images make a simple yet perfect card. 

Card Base:  Basic Black card stock  8-1/2 x 5-1/2

Mat:  Melon Mambo  card stock  4-1/8 x 5-3/8

Card Front:  (colorful piece) Shimmer White Card stock 5-1/4 x 4

Ink Refills:  Petal Pink, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, and Blackberry Bliss

I put a couple of drops of ink in some empty embellishment containers I had laying around, one for each color.  Then with my Aqua Painter, added a few drops of water and mixed it up.  Working from Dark to Light, I swiped color back-n-forth with my brush.  I worked from dark to light because when you mix up the color and water, or pick up more color with your Aqua Painter, your brush will have lots of color, right?  Keep a paper towel near by to wipe off your brush when changing ink colors.  You do not have to clean completely, just enough to remove majority of color. 

Use your Heat Tool to help speed the drying process.  Remember, heat both sides of the paper which will help with the curling. 

Stamped images and works are done in Black Memento ink (I used a brand new pad....wow!  That sure did stamp nice).   If you have not replaced your Memento ink pad for a while, I highly recommend replacing it.  I did not realize the quality difference between my old pad and the new one.  But mine is heavily used. 

What me to do a video for this card?  Let me know!!!
