Bee Happy

Here's the cutest image from Paper Nest Dolls, she's Bee Happy Ellie.  She's just too sweet. I am so excited to have prizes from Paper Nest Dolls this month.  Their stamps are so darling.


Question of the day 2:  what is your favorite embellishment?  what is your least favorite?

I think my favorite embellishment is either buttons or lace...I am sure that was obvious lol, though I also love flowers and brads/bling;  Anything with stitching, cardstock stickers with sentiments and colorbox chalk ink on the edges;
  My least fav is prob glitter. I just can't control the mess.  I also don't use much eyelets, alphabets.  An item I love to buy but don't use enough of is washi tape

She is such a cutie, Holley! I love bee themed images because my BFF is a beekeeper. I do love flowers and ribbon and lace, (although I tend to hoard lace because I don't want to cut it). As for least favorite embellies, well I do have trouble with eyelets and sometimes brads because of having to punch holes. Never seem to get them in the right place. xxD

So very sweet! My favourite embellishment is twine or string especially on masculine cards. I don't think I have a least favourite embellishment. Creative Blessings, Tracy x

What a cutie!! My 4 year old granddaughter has a bee costume that looks a lot like this and she wore it last weekend when I was there so this brought a smile to my face. My favorite embellishments are twine, small rhinestones , and enamel dots. My least favorites are metal or bulky embellishments because my cards are usually mailed.

Cute card. I like lace and paper tape and rhinestones. I like buttons, but struggle to use them. I don't really understand sequins. Hugz

Hi Holley - I love the bumble bee card. My favorite embellishments are the 3D layered stickers fro K and Company! I had some birds that I used to make quick and easy, but very cute cards! Audrey R in Austin

What a pretty card! She looks almost human. I’m with you on the glitter. I love how it looks though, so if I feel I really need it, I use glitter glue if I can. My favorite embellishments are dimensional stickers or die cuts.

Glennis said...

How pretty! I use lace a lot and also charms

Amy Martin said...

Love your card!! That image is so cute... And your coloring is amazing!! I love using flowers and butterflies. I also love using metal or wood veneer. Twine, pearls, and washi tape are also used. But I dont use enough washi tape myself. I dont use glitter as I dont really try I guess. I also love using milds to make things to attach something different when Im doing mixed media.

Love this card. I love bees. Glitter is one of my favorite embellishments. I love ribbon and flowers too. I don’t use eyelets too much. I used to use brads much anymore either.

Bee-you-titular Card! I bet many Crafter’s will be buzzing about it!
My favorite embellishments is Florals or glitter but you won’t catch me putting brads or eyelets on my projects! TFS!

Shell B. said...

Super cute card Holley!

Jean said...

So cute. My favorite embellishments are flowers. Love to use them on cards and scrapbook lay. My least favorite hold be brads. I never use them.

vinita jain said...

So cute card!
I always tried to embellish my projects with my own handmade flowers and depend on my project theme also. I love to add sequins, metal charms, glitters, ribbon, lace etc.

sammi said...

I just BEE loving this! Too cute! My favorite embellishments are flowers and bling. I rarely use brads or eyelets - Never have been a fan of them! Thank you for another creative day of inspiration, Holley!

DJ said...

I love flowers. I guess my least favorite is eyelets as I don’t always get them set correctly.

jordanbev5@yahoo.com said...

BEEEutiful!! Lovely image and card! Flowers is my #1 and lace or seam binding a close second!!! Did a ton with lace and flowers this weekend and really loved the feminine touch! Thanks for all you do!

Kathy said...

Adorable card. I tend to rely on flowers and die cuts. I am also washi collector, but rare user. I wish I had your skill with buttons and lace. I love the way they look on your cards. I like glitter on my cards, just not loose glitter. I use glitter glue or stickles and glitter paper. I still have some of the glitter paper that flaked, but most of the new stuff is embedded some how and won't come off.

Jennifer Dillon said...

This is such a cute card love the image. I love using flowers,lace,buttons,die cuts,glitter,and bling.

Cathy Clowes said...

Stunning card Holley, so very cute. I love washi tape, ribbon, pearls and gems. I find glitter a pain and never really get on with flowers- I never know how many to add! Cathy x

Kajcyika said...

What a cute and happy card!
My favorite must be sequins :) And I dislike anything really big :)

jackiep said...

My favorite card so far!! Our bee hives have had a long hard winter and it’s not over yet BUT 70+ degrees today, a record setting kind of day...only 8-70 degrees days in Feb in Cleveland since keeping weather records.

Darcy Schroeder said...

This company has really cute images! And a really cute card you made, Holley! The sentiment you used is perfect!!
I love most embellishments, but I had a falling out with brads. They don't want to stay glued down when they are too close to the edge of the layer. I have switched to mostly self adhesive embellies and sequins, especially the sequins from Close to My Heart as they are already sticky!!

Mel C said...

Adorable card! I like small flowers (hard to find here) and dislike using eyelets.

Candy Meyers said...

This little gal is too cute. My favorite embellishments are bows and gems. Found flat ones at Paper Wishes, so mostly use them, as they mail nicely.

Melodyscraps, mixed media goddess said...

Oh she is adorable...love the colors!

I have a love affair with embellishments of all kinds. If I was to pick a favorite out would likely be wood veneers. Least favorite is the herpes of the craft world...glitter.

Christine Telega said...

This is a really cute card. You always match your embellishments so well.

Lucie H said...

Cute Card! I tend to use a lot of flower embellishments.

Jennifer Bradley said...

Super cute card Holley. I do not favour any one embellishment I just go with whatever I think goes with the card. Hugs Jennifer xx

Rhonda Miller said...

Your card is so cute. I usually find myself putting gems and pearls when I use embellishments. I struggle with things like ribbon and twine.

jeanchaneyaz said...

Such a cutie on your card! I love flowers and enamel dots. I love lace and doilies. I love bows, brads, and sequins. The only thing I don't like is stickers.

Nikki C said...

Awe cute card. Fave embellishments brads and now washi my least favorite would be loose glitter and huge flowers I just never know what to do with them lol hugs Nikki

SHartl said...

Oh goodness, this is so cute! That little girl reminds me of my own two girls when they play dress up. Let's see, my favorite embellishments are rhinestones and pearls, ribbon and twine, small colored brads and enamel dots, and rub-ons. I don't usually use buttons, metal or wood.

StampNK said...

What a cheery card and I love the Bee theme. My favorite embellishment right now is probably enamel dots, twine and solid ribbon, and washi tape. I rarely use stickers, large flowers, or anything 3-D.

Shelley said...

Great card! My least favorite to use are buttons and my very favorite to use are those tiny, tiny, miniscule beads in both gold and black especially, but other colors too. Absolute favorite! Charms are a 2nd favorite. I also like bling.

Vickie Kertz said...

My most favorite embellishment is small adhesive stones. Least favorite is brads because thry make it difficult to mail.
I have decided your signature is lace.

Pat said...

Very cute card, Holley. I love lace, but don't have a lot - just like your washi tape dilemna! LOL I use a lot of sequins, Stickles and flowers on my cards. I also like to rip my papers and to ink the edges.

Laurian said...

Such a cute card Holley and the perfect papers and embellishments!
Probably my least favourite embellie is buttons and I have hundreds of them too! I love lace, ribbon and glitter (you can set it with hairspray so it doesn't go everywhere). I like to use die cuts and then glitter them to match what I need x

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

Perfect sentiment to pair with this sweet image. I do like glitter. but a small bottle can last forever unless you drop it on the floor. LOL

Vivian Foo said...

Such cute card! Favorite embellishment is laces and dislike buttons.
