Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Blooms Sneak Peek with Such Good News!

Hello again and happy Monday!  I don’t know about y’all – but…four-day weekends really throw me for a loop. I have trouble remembering what day it is ANYway.  Having a holiday on Thursday just puts me in a spin! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

My card today is simple – but super sweet (she says modestly!).  I used the new Heart & Home DSP and the Honeybee Home stamp set – with the bundled Honeybee Blooms Die set (all coming on 4 Jan in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog.  Unless…you JOIN the team – this is a GREAT time to do that!  THEN you can get them on…Wednesday, 1 December!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

I started by matting a piece of the pretty gray woodgrain paper from the Heart & Home DSP on Highland Heather for the card front.

Using the next-to-smallest of the skinny dies in the Stitched Rectangle Die set, I cut a piece of the Misty Moonlight paper from Heart & Home and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Using Stampin’ Seal, I adhered a length of 3/8″ Denim Ribbon (part of the Heart & Home Suite and available on 4 Jan) across the card front.

I used the two dies in the Honeybee Blooms die set to cut a Highland Heather and a Misty Moonlight flower- which I then adhered on the left side, over the ribbon, with Liquid Glue.

I tied a simple bow from Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the uber-sweet Honeybee Home sentiment in Highland Heather.  Then I cut it with the smallest skinny Stitched Rectangle Die.

Using double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the sentiment over the top of the ribbon and the bow.

Finally, I added a few Basic Gray dots from the new Classic Matte Dots (from the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini) and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped two of the flowers from Honeybee Home in Highland Heather and Misty Moonlight.  I nestled a small Basic Gray Classic Matte Dot in the foliage.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into my Smoky Slate card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Honeybee Home flowers on the front in Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather…

…and more of the Heart & Home DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – this is going to be SUCH a popular Suite!  This amazing Honeybee Home stamp set and bundled Honeybee Blooms dies are so beautiful!  Add the floral and woodgrain beauty of the Heart & Home DSP and… it’s a winner for sure!

Finn Fan Fix 

Do you see them?

No?  Well – I have the solution for you.

For the first time on a WordPress Blog, may I present….

The Finnomatic 5000!

Yes – it’s the first Deer Surveillance and Alerting Security System available now for Home Use!

Routine maintenance is…

…minimal and the system remains active during the scheduled maintenance activity.

Complete with convenient sighting mechanisms….

System can be activated and the home owner can go on his way, secure in the knowledge that the homefront is safe from rogue deer.

Wascally wabbits.

Sneaky Squirrels.

None will make it past the Finnomatic 5000!



P.S. Photos depict the First Article.  Full Rate Production is expected in late 2056.
