Snow Buddies Birthday Sketch

Merry Christmas Eve stamping friends. Today I am sharing the Snow Buddies stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps. Oh how I love this set. SOOOOOO Stinking CUTE!

This also follows the Freshly Made Sketch #368 for this week.

Here is the sketch:

This is my 3rd consistent week playing with these sketches. You should try them!

I just love the Joy on his face! You can see another Snow Buddies card HERE. Do you remember the Coffee Lovers Blog hop? I entered 2 cards in the hop and as a result I won 2 stamp sets from Stamp Simply Ribbon store. Free stamps are the best stamps and this is where the Happy Birthday sentiment is from.

Christmas Card Sharing

I had so much fun making Christmas cards this year. Before I switch gears in a few days, here are quite a few that I love and want to share. Each one is special in its own way and several were inspired from a previous blog post.

Do you remember the Alphabet Christmas cards? I just love those letters and the little flowers that make the wreath. Rustic and super simple.

This branch and cone card follows the same designer paper layout as the card in this post. A very versatile layout.


Spotlight ink blending for this “Adore Him” Bundle card. Check out these cards and also this post with the video tutorial.

My daughter loves these Yetis from MFT. Check out this post for more cute beasts!

I saw quite a few Christmas and holiday Rainbow themed cards these past few months. Here is my take on it.

And I love a cute critter. I have had this MFT Polar Bear pals set for quite a while and had a fun time inking him up! and those snowflakes were a fun find on the Spellbinder’s site. Not to big, not to small.

A Gel Press Christmas

Do you remember the Tutorial on the gel press backgrounds from September? These beautiful, serene Gel Press Christmas cards were made in just a few minutes with 2 of the extra backgrounds I had leftover.

Stamp with Jill, Clean and Simple Gel Press Christmas

The simplicity of these is what make them beautiful. I added a touch of Stickles glitter glue for the snow at the base of the tress and at the deer’s feet. Of course the sentiments for both cards are from the Spellbinders November card kit stamp set. After all I just can’t stop using all the fun components in these kits!

Stamp with Jill, Clean and Simple Gel Press Christmas

Time to ink up your Gel Press! You can see the original cards and the step by step tutorial on THIS POST. Make sure you save the extra backgrounds you make, you never know when inspiration will strike. Surprisingly, I never thought when I made these backgrounds that they would work for Christmas.

Popping in really quick to share some fast, clean and simple cards with this month’s Winter Wishes card kit from Spellbinders. Love how quickly these came together. Sometimes you just need easy. Especially at this time of the year!

There is almost no stamping on these cards- only the tiny birthday on the Birthday wishes card.

I added only 3 colors: whip cream, oatmeal cookie and a pink card stock I had in my stash. Everything else is right out of the box. Even the dark brown was in the box.

Check out the Polar bear card HERE also made from this months card kit!

off to get ready for the Holidays!


“Deer Santa” Christmas Scrapbook Pages

Here are 5 more reasons to LOVE the November 2018 “Deer Santa” Card Kit. IT SIMPLY ROCKS!! Get your Holiday pages ready now. All I have to do is add my pictures.

I added some whip cream 12 x 12 and Kiwi Slice card stock for picture mats. A corner rounder helped to match the cards that came in the kit. This literally took minutes!

On this page I used the triangle die, star die, and the tree die with the star which are all from the November Large die of the month to make the trees. Easy. Just die cut a variety from the Deer Santa paper. The Snow is cut with the Borderabilities. The glitter stars were also in the kit as. Finally some ink blending and some sparkle silk to make the sky and snow.

Another easy one. All I added was12 x 12 whip cream for the base, pool play sparkle tape and some candy dots and sequins. everything else is from the kit. I can’t wait to put our gingerbread house pictures on this page. The pictures will cover the mismatched paper seams.

Adorable right? I cased this beauty from Scrap with Rachel on Instagram. Candy Apple red 12 x 12 and my very last scrap piece of Buffalo plaid from the Cozy winter prints paper pack were added. The rest is from the Deer Santa Kit!

Also cased from Scrap with Rachel! For this page I added the pine branches paper from Through the years paper pack, the red stripe paper is from the Cozy Winter prints and whip cream card stock. The Black scallop is hand drawn from tracing a scallop die cut from the Border Basics die set. The 2 snow flakes are from the Dec Winter Wishes kit.

Cuteness Alert: Honey Bee Stamps Snow Buddies

OH M GEE. Is he not the CUTEST snowman you have ever seen? Allow me to introduce you to my new all time favorite snowman stamp set: Honey Bee Stamps Snow Buddies.

Stamp with Jill, Honey Bee Stamps Snow Buddies

First, we need to make this snowman a girl. She’s so pretty all decked out in pink. This pink foil paper from the Spellbinders Winter Wishes card kit is a perfect transition into winter themed cards instead of holiday. The tiny snowflakes and the sentiment die cuts are also from the card kit. Have you noticed that the Borderabilities dies make the perfect snow mound on both the outside and inside of the card? This die set is a great addition to any stamp collection.


Honey Bee Stamps Snow Buddies just SCREAMS happiness! I also got some coffee sentiments (called Perfect Blend) in my order and this “You warm my Heart” is perfect. I can easily add Happy Birthday or Happy Valentine’s Day to this depending on the recipient!

Of course she (or he) can be used for holiday cards too but I love that there are fun accessories that expand this set into much more than Christmas.

She is colored with Copics: YR04, RV10, C1, V12, R81 and the colorless blender 0

The pink cardstock: Unfortunately I have no clue what color this is. I found it in my collection of pinks and it was a perfect match.
