Sweet As Honey Card

A bright and cheery card proclaiming “You’re as sweet as honey” would be welcomed in anyone’s mailbox, don’t you agree?  It’s Sunday and time to play with The Paper Players!

sweet as honeyThis week the talented Anne Marie is hosting our monthly sketch challenge.  The “layer lover” in me is absolutely gaga over her multi-layered sketch. While I incorporated a variety of different patterns from the Bee Mine designer series paper collection, I can’t wait to see what YOU create! I know it will be fabulous.

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

I’ve said it before and I will say it again…I LOVE how Stampin’ Up!’s papers and colors coordinate with each other. Can you believe I used 6 different patterns from the Bee Mine collection on today’s card? I think my favorite would have to be the Daffodil Delight plaid. It looks so fresh matted against Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, while the floral pattern is like a breath of spring.  Although the Bee Mine Valentine stamp set was obviously designed with Valentine’s Day in mind, it can be used for a variety of cute, romantic cards.
