We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop - Celebrate Sale-A-Bration


Thanks for stopping by and checking out our team blog hop.  First, I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and I hope 2023 brings all good things. 

Well, Sale-a-Bration (SAB) and the new January-April 2023 mini catalogs are coming!  Both will be available starting January 5, 2023 so that is why we are celebrating Sale-a-Bration.  

I have two cards to share today!

Card 1:  Adorable Owl (SAB item available 1-05-23 - item #160269)

#adorableowl #lisabrown

Isn't he cute!  I randomly stamped him on basic white card stock.  Then I stamped again on scrap white and colored using Crumb Cake Blends, with a little Pumpkin Pie for toes and beak.  And using my Favorite color, Fresh Freesia, for my card base, In-Color sheer ribbon and ink pad.  A cute, quick and simple card. 

Adorable Owl stamp set is a Free Earn during SAB with a $50 product purchase

Card 2:  Adorable Owl (#160269) and Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper (SAB DSP only - item #160836)

#adorableowl #dandydesigns #lisaBrown

Here I am using two (2) Sale-a-Bration items, the Dandy Designs DSP and the owl set.  Again the Adorable Owls is a free earn with a $50 product purchase and the Dandy Designs DSP is a free earn with a $100 purchase.  This pack of DSP has 48 sheets of paper, double sided and will not disappoint!

DSP Cut Dimensions: 

  • (2 pieces) 2 x 2
  • 1 x 2
  • 2 x 5-1/4

Fresh Freesia CS:  1 x 1-3/4 and 2 x 2-7/8

Basic White CS:  3/4 x 1-1/2 and 1-3/4 x 2-5/8

Again, I used my Stampin' Blends (Crumb Cake, Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya & Pumpkin Pie) to color the owl.  Add some 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds embellishments for some bling!

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop - Stamped Christmas Gifts


Welcome to this month's Team Blog Hop and thank you for joining us as we head into the busiest time of the year.  Hope your holidays are magical. 

Just a reminder the Last Chance Product list and sale started today.  CLICK HERE to check out all the great items. 

My project today features the Window Wishes Bundle and the fabulous Snowflake 12 x 12 Specialty Vellum!


For the bag:

  • 2 pieces of specialty vellum cut at a 10" square
  • Score 3 sides at 2-1/2" and the last side at 1-1/4"
  • Fold each scored line and give it a good crease using a bone folder.  It will really help with the vellum
  • Holding the scored vellum in front of you:
    • fold the 1-1/4 line toward you and glue down (makes the top flap)
    • snip off the bottom left and bottom right squares leaving the middle flap 
    • all the 2-1/2 scored lines get folded back
    • do this to both 10" squares
  • Adhere the two 10" pieces together.  Side flaps first an then the bottom. 

Here a side angle picture.


The window/candles/wreath are all made with the Window Wishes Bundle.  

A couple of tips: 

  • Use a  Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker to add dots of berries to the wreath. 
  • I cut the two window dies with Basic White card stock but then also cut the inner die again with Basic Black cardstock. 
  • I inserted the black negative pieces to give a solid background.  

Another Tip:  when making the bag and using vellum, the 1-1/4" top flap will show the dull side of the vellum.  I took left over strips of the specialty vellum paper and adhered to the four flap sides.  I used 2 pieces of 1-1/8" x 2-3/8" and 2 pieces of 1-1/8" x 4-7/8".  Colored card stock would also look nice. 

Because the vellum is a thicker material, it does not show the Stampin' Seal+ adhesive used to hold the bag together!

I hope you like my project now.... 

Continue to hop with our team and Buzzzz on over to see what Mary Ann Rossiter has to share!


Don't forget, you can Buzzzz on back to see Linda Bauwin's project again.  


Product List

So Grateful Pop Out Creative Fold

So Grateful... November is a good reminder of what we are grateful for; family, friends and simple blessings in  our life.  I wanted to share this sweet card project that is a creative fold with a surprising inside.  

The featured stamp set is called Apple Harvest and the background was made with the Gingham embossing folder. 


My card base is Real Red CS (card stock) cut to  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 and scored at 2-1/8 from each end.

The front panels are two pieces of Basic White CS cut to 2 x 5-3/8.  Take Real  Red ink pad and lightly rub over the raised image side of the Gingham embossing folder, and emboss your two panels.

On a 2-3/4 x 3-3/4 piece of Basic White, stamp your words and apple image with Black Memento.  I used the following Stampin' Blends makers to color:  Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green, Old Olive, Soft Sea Foam, Balmy Blue and the Color Lifter.   Mat this to a piece of Granny Apple Green Cs that is 3 x 4. 

Surprise Inside:


To make the pop-up pieces:  cut 2  pieces of Basic White CS 1 x 5" and score at 1", 2-3/16" and 4

I hope you  liked the surprise inside!  Below is a list of products I used for quick reference.
