Happy Saturday friends! It’s Carly and today I wanted to share with you 3 reasons every stamper needs an alphabet set. And this is also really 3 reasons I adore Honey Bee’s Color Me Alpha!

#1. custom sentiments

Honey Bee has a truly awesome collection of sentiment stamps, I mean have you seen the Blah Blah Blah or the Kindness sets? So wonderful!!! But sometimes you just need to create your own sentiment. For this card, I stamped “sending love & a” with the Color Me Alpha. To complete the sentiment, I used the “latte” die from the Perfect Blend set.




#2. backgrounds

Use letters to create patterns for backgrounds. Xs and Os are the perfect background for a lovey card.


Try drawing light pencil lines to help with letter spacing. And a quick tip, heat set pigment inks before erasing the pencil lines.



#3. unique designs

Combine letters with other stamps to create unique images & accents. The open design of the Color Me Alpha is especially awesome for this.


For example, I stamped Country Blooms in black, then I stamped  & embossed “LOVE” over top so some of the blooms would be inside the letters.




Adding a little color inside the “LOVE” creates a focal point for my card and a unique design.



Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs!

    I can’t agree more since I’m French and it’s impossible to find French sentiments !
