Mini May Release Inspiration with Ivy and Jessica

Save the date for this fun Create with Us! In this class hosted by Kelly and Jenn, you’ll create two adorable cards featuring Just Plane Awesome stamp set. You can follow along — or just pop in to say hi! — on YouTube Live. Click HERE for all the details. We hope to see you there!

Our creative Fawnies, Ivy and Jessica made adorable cards featuring our new Mini May Release! Ivy created a sweet honey and lemon get well card while Jessica made an interactive Magic Picture Changer!

Ivy combined new Mini May sets, Magic Iris Beehive Add-On, Hive Five, More Magic Messages and Honeycomb Backdrop on this lovely get-well card! She found the lemon in You’re the Zest to add to a cup of tea with honey!

She included the cute beekeeper from our recent gift purchase. If you didn’t get a chance to grab that set, the Den Sweet Den bear would be a perfect stand in!

Jessica featured the new Just Plane Awesome set in a super fun interactive Magic Picture Changer! She filled the background with Leafy Tree Backdrop: Portrait and Meadow Borders. I love the shiny details she added with Woodgrain Background Hot Foil Plate and Cloud Background Hot Foil Plate!

The cute scene changes from the mouse launching the paper airplane, to the airplane flying away! So clever! How cute is that little mouse from Fly High?

Big thanks to our Fawnie friends, Ivy and Jess for inspiring us today! You’re cards are so adorable!


Thanks so much for visiting, have an amazing day!

Samantha’s Sweet as Honey Card

It’s the last day to get this great free gift with purchase, You’re a Keeper! This cute beekeeping bear is only available until 11:59PM Pacific time tonight, May 26, while supplies last. Get your set today exclusively at

Samantha‘s bee-utiful card mixes old and new with Hive Five, Honeycomb Backdrop and Honeycomb Stencil and our classic How You Bean? mason jar! The result is “sweet as honey”!

Samantha created a pretty honey jar cutting it from Watercolor Wishes paper, then stenciling the honeycomb with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink. Then she used Stripes ‘n Sprinkles paper behind the Honeycomb Backdrop before adding Hive Five bees and flowers from Spring Flowers Backdrop.

Then she added the final touches with the sentiment embossed in white on black cardstock and some Black Tie twine! So pretty!

Thanks so much for inspiring us today, Samantha! I love that honey jar!

Design Team Inspiration

The design team has made the most amazing samples! We also have a video at the end to show some fun ideas for using this new backdrop die! Remember to click on the person’s name to see all of the details and leave these wonderful DT girls some comment love!

Tammy‘s card is so sweet, you might even say “sweet as honey”! I love how she combined Hive Five with the cute Den Sweet Den bear to create this happy scene. Tammy inked the Honeycomb Backdrop with honey colors, then she popped out the stitched cells leaving some in place to create a fun pattern.

To create this sweet pair of cards, Marine die cut and inked the Honeycomb Backdrop once. Then she used the frame for one card and the hexagons for the other card!

This design features all the stitched hexagon shapes, inked to honey colored perfection! Marine combined Hive Five with a branch from A Bug Deal and then included a glittery hexagon frame from Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag!

And then for this design, Marine backed the Honeycomb Backdrop frame with acetate and used it to create a fun heart-filled shaker card!

Elena popped out selected hexagons from Honeycomb Backdrop before layering on an adorable grouping of images! The bear from Den Sweet Den is a natural for honey-themed designs! It’s so cute hugging the Hive Five bee!

Latisha cut the Honeycomb Backdrop from white cardstock and popped out all the hexagon pieces. Then she layered it over an ombré inked panel to create the perfect background for a Magic Iris Sunflower! Latisha also added a sentiment from More Magic Messages and sweet heart banners from Heart Garland Backdrop to finish her sunny card!

Mindy also created a shaker card with Honeycomb Backdrop! I love how she cut away the honeycomb except for the two corners to feature the Pop-Up Bee. And of course, I absolutely love her punny greeting!

Oh my goodness, Grace‘s card is so beautiful! I love honey colored beehive and Finley’s ABCs message with all the pretty little flowers! The white Honeycomb Backdrop looks so awesome with some of the hexagons removed and others replaced with Pixie Dust Sparkle ones!

Elise left her Honeycomb Backdrop intact, inking it with warm colors. It’s so beautiful as a background for the Hive Five bees and the glittery Scripty Sweet greeting.

Yainea also used just a portion of the Honeycomb Backdrop for her lovely get well card! It frames the Magic Iris Beehive Add-On so well. And the gold embossed “get well soon” sentiment from More Magic Messages is so sweet!

Caly‘s design is so clever! She removed all the stitched hexagons before replacing only a few which she popped up on foam squares randomly. I love how she combined the Hive Five bees and beehive with the flowers and a branch from Magic Iris Beehive Add-On, they are so perfect together!

I absolutely love Audrey‘s creativity, her card is so much fun! She used the paint splatters from Art Supplies as honey in the honeycomb! So clever. Then she added the cute bee from Magic Iris Beehive Add-On and hot foiled Stitched Trail! I love the punny sentiment spelled out in Henry’s ABCs.
