Hello everyone! AmyR here from Prairie Paper & Ink and welcome to Day 2 of blog hops showcasing the Season To Sparkle Release. There is a ton of inspiration from several of the Honey Bee Stamps Design Team members plus guests – links to all the stops are below!
Honey Bee is also offering TWO $30 gift cards to the Honey Bee Stamps Store, one from Day One and one from the Day Two comments. In order to be entered to win, all you need to do is hop along with us and comment on each blog. Winners will be announced on the Honey Bee Stamps Blog on 10/18.

I made 2 cards and a video to share with you all today showcasing the new Home Essentials patterned paper pack. These papers were designed to go with Honey Bee’s House Builder Honey Cuts dies and are different from Honey Bee’s other patterned paper packs in that they have a satin finish and more realistic look to them.

I die cut the Home Essentials patterned papers as well as various card stock with the House Builder Honey Cuts dies and assembled just the “front” of each house. There is a hinge wafer die in the set that enables you to make a house-shaped card from it but I had other plans.

I created 2 easel cards from A2 card bases and adhered each house to the base and added more of the Home Essentials patterned papers to the “inside” of the card which finish off the scene when the cards are propped open.

To see how these cards came together check out my video below!
