You Make Me Smile // The Alley Way Stamps

Hi there!

It's going to be a quick post because I have to go finish some homework for a project :(  There is still time to enter your card in the current Be-Inspired Challenge.  I used the polka dots and red and white color combo as my inspiration from the inspiration photo.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Medium Dot Stencil and the Tim Holtz Spritzer to create the background.  The two colors of Distress Ink Markers I used were Barn Door and Fired Brick.

I stamped the "flower" from the Flower Doodles set and then inked it with Barn Door, Ripe Persimmon, and Mustard Seed Distress Inks.  The sentiment is from the Speak Easy stamp set.

Bee Happy // The Alley Way Stamps

Hello!  Easter is in one week, so I thought I would give you a week of Easter inspiration.  Today, I am starting by sharing this Easter Bee card using two new stamp sets from The Alley Way Stamps.  It's so fun to use all of the images for different seasons!

The patterned papers are from Jillibean Soup and the hexagons are cut with a die from My Favorite Things.

I used crinkle ribbon from May Arts that I folded all across the front of the card.  I added a couple of buttons and sequins as embellishments.

All of the supplies are linked below to Simon Says Stamp.  I am an affiliate for them which means that I get a small percentage of each sale that shops through my link.  It helps with supporting this blog, so I can bring you tons of inspiration!  I really appreciate all of your support!

Beekini Day // The Alley Way Stamps

Hello!  Anybody else wishing they could go to the beach right now?  I know that I am more than ready for summer and nice weather!  I created a fun card using the Bee Sweet and Bee Unique sets from The Alley Way Stamps, plus Core'dinations card stock.
I embossed a piece of light blue card stock from Core'dinations with a Darice embossing folder.  I then inked the embossed part with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.  I also tore two strips of Core'dinations card stock from the Neutrals Essentials collection to create the "beach."

I colored in the bee and bikini with Copics markers.  I mean, how adorable is the bee with the "beekini?"
