Thank you so much for stopping by our We BEE Stamping Team Blog Hop. This hop is a little bitter sweet as we have to say goodbye to some of our favorite Stampin' Up! products. Whether it is a stamp set, dies, a punch or accessory, there are a lot of items we will need to bid farewell very soon.
Welcome to our March Blog Hop - Marching Into Spring
It's coming... it's finally coming! Have you ever been so excited to see spring coming more than this year? I, for one, feel like winter has lasted forever and that we have been locked inside since I don't know when. I am sure its likely because, this month, we will be in what I call Covid mode, for a year. Spring to me is new life, renewal, fresh air, bright colors, flowers and more. Bring it on!
For my Marching Into Spring project, I chose to combine a few of my favorite products. The NEW (starts March 2, 2021) Butterfly Bouquet, the Forever Fern Bundle, and semi-new Many Messages Bundle.
Let's take a look:
Card Stock (CS): Basic White & Thick Basic White, Basic Black & Butterfly Bijou 6x6 DSP
Ink: Bumblebee, Granny Apple Green, and Black Memento
Thick Basic White card base 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored & folded at 4-1/4
Layer of Basic Black CS measures 4 x 5-1/4 adhered to card base
Basic White layer is 3-7/8 x 5-1/8
Wrap a piece of Bumblebee In-Color Ribbon (about 4-1/2" long) around edges of White CS
With the Forever Fern Bundle, stamp several leaf images in Granny Apple Green & Bumblebee and die cut
Arrange leaves how you like
Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere Gold Hoop (my several glue dots are hiding behind the butterfly
Stamp butterfly with Memento ink onto a piece of the Butterfly Bijou DSP (2-1/2 x 3-1/2)
Then die cut the butterfly out along with another one in Basic Black
Place adhere down the center of the DSP cut butterfly adhering it to the Basic Black butterfly
Add Butterflies to card front with Dimensionals
Words stamped in Memento are from the Many Messages Bundle. I edged with Bumblebee ink

Hello there! And welcome to our We Bee Stamping Team Blog Hop for December. This month we are all sharing a Simple Christmas Gift made with Stampin' Up! products.
I have a fun and beautiful project and I really hope you not only like it, but try and make one too!
People who know me, know that I have been crafting most of my adult life. There just about isn't anything I won't try... well, except for crocheting. I just never was able to pick up on that craft. Who knows, maybe one day I will try again.
Each year I try to come up with something different to make. It could be a wall hanging, decorated glass etching, floral arrangement, or a host of other things. This year I decided on ornaments. I have done a ton of ornaments in the past but I think this one makes it all the worth while to revisit the ornament idea! I just love how it came out and the poinsettia flower was pretty quick and easy to make.
